  1. http://www.mojoaxe.com/ is the only one I could find with the correct bevelling
  2. Hi Valery! Terribly sorry for not replying sooner. I don’t have notifications set up and didn’t realise you had commented. I assume you found the information you needed but in case you didn’t here goes... -volume and tone knobs: they will have to be metric if you aren’t replacing the pots. They’re easy to find on ebay -knob pointers: as far as I know any will fit. It’s not a real snug fit on the post, they are held in place by the nut -nut: the nut and the electronics were done by a guitar tech -truss rod cover: that took a bit of modding. I used a small piece of cork painted black to go in the hole for the truss rod for on screw and made a new screw hole for the other. A little dab of paint in the existing screw holes makes them barely noticeable -tuners: vintage style klusons fit the existing hole. Modern grovers with the nut and washer would require enlarging the hole -pickguard: this was the trickiest bit. If you want to use the same bracket there are options available on eBay. Be sure to measure the distance between you pickups. I’m not certain a dot replacement pickguard will fit without modification -pickup surround screws: I bought from Stew Mac. If I remember correctly I bought two different lengths -pickup selector switch: if you just want to replace the tip you’ll need to buy metric. Standard Gibson won’t fit Hope this helps. Again sorry for the late reply
  3. With the news that nothing is changing with the Dot I thought now would be a good time to post my “1962 ES-335 TDC”. It began life as an LE ES-335 PRO but the only thing that’s still original are the frets. I swapped the pups for Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers, controls were replaced with CTS pots and pickup selector and Gibson Bumblebee caps. Swapped the tuners for Kluson double rings, the nut replaced with a Nubone. Bridge was replaced with a period correct ABR-1 tune-o-matic. Added the period correct truss rod cover, knob pointers and strap buttons. I had to get a little creative to get a pickguard bracket given the depth of the Epi compared to Gibby. Bought an ES and a mandolin bracket and mix matched the two. It’s holdong up a period correct Gibson style pickguard. This is a guitar that is truly “Inspired By Gibson”
  4. Obviously my wife (and our bank account) isn’t as disappointed as me but I was really looking forward to a ES-335 more in line with Gibson
  5. I realise I’m talking to myself but anyway.. so disappointing
  6. Unless I’m missing something the only Casino available now is the Coupe. Surely their keeping something close to the vest here. I can’t imagine they’d turn their back on arguably the most famous of all Epiphone models
  7. Surely this isn’t what they mean by “revamped ES line”. If it is though it would explain why it was left out of the promo shots. Not exactly “Inspired By Gibson” with the old headstock shape, black nut, epiphone shaped pickguard, and no neck binding. Disappointing to say the least
  8. Anyone have any info? Can’t find anything anywhere. No pics, no specs, no pics. I’m sure it’ll be out soon but I love ES models and I’m impatient lol
  9. Hi

  10. A little pricey but I found several on eBay
  11. As you might presume from the title I have an Inspired by ‘55 LPC and aside from the fret ends the guitar is great. I just don’t like the look of the finish. Has anyone tried, or does anyone know, if the “aged gloss” (matte) finish can be buffed to a true gloss?

  13. Couldn’t have said it better myself CB
  14. Thanks 212 West! I’ll be ordering soon. Is than an inspired by 55? I have one and have been on the fence about leaving it stock or modding. IMO that bridge looks so much better
  15. My link Does anyone have experience with these? Do I need to buy the bridge from Phil. luthier or will other bridges fit?
