  1. Glad you changed the title for "Gold top" to "Explorer" as not to be confused with a gold top guitar. I like natural mahogany finish is great
  2. Most of the Gibson acoustics at my store don't have the strap button. J45, Songwriter etc no strap button
  3. New CEO and upper mgt a Gibson. They'll take away or add as needed for their chapter 11 charter
  4. Besides Gibson in Chapter 11, fired old owner/boss got new power and new boss. Wonder how any model survived.
  5. My suggestion is play it for a bit before changing. Just putting a pickup at the bridge changes the tone and volume over then neck position. You might like this balance in sound
  6. Upper bout sure is wood grain. Not 100% certain with the pot location lines, whether checking crack in nitro or just the wood grain. Different angle picture might clear that slightest doubt of just wood grain
  7. Headstock was never like that from Gibson 3 screw truss rod cover screams Chinese import Bridge is wrong for a Gibson Bolt on neck and with steel neck plate screams Chinese import Pickups look like a clone of Gretsch Fulton pickup. And a whole lot more
  8. I'm just curious on why so many zombie post from 2008 are being resurrected when information not related to the topic
  9. Not sure why you'd resurrect such an old post (2008) in stead of starting a new one. Right headstock looks like someone cutdown the old headstock to "resemble" a Gibson. Body is wrong shape too. And what's with the 10 deg twist with the bridge pickup. I'd put a guitar like this in my trunk, for lunch time practice cause it will make guitar sounds, and I wouldn't worry about heat, cold, freezing, rain hurting it
  10. We've seen posts before about guitars where you hold strings and gets quite hmmm. obviously you're acting as an attena and when you get grounded (hand on string or bridge or foot on pedal) noise stops. humbuckers are 100% quiet and still transmit hum if there is enough, try putting a anti static solution like a liquid fabric softener about 1/4 of a spray bottle mixed with 3/4 water and spray your carpet in your room
  11. Guitar Center exclusive runs are their own beasts. GC can specify color, woods, hardware along with their own serial number runs Can't compare those to over a 3yr old post. Heck try something from the 70's and it won't match up either.
  12. very easy to chip the finger board yanking the frets out. if it was me and I didn't really trust anyone close in my town.. I'd email 1 place that does vintage repairs all the time gruhn@gruhn.com contact Greg Voros , he's the head repair guy. email them a number of detailed pictures. he shoots straight and their prices are not out of line with anyone else but you know you guitar is in the hands of pretty close to the best repair shop in your country
  13. is your LPJ single coil ? p90? without the control cover copper shield connected to anything.. No.
  14. ok I went back to IMGUR, take a look. thought it looked more complicated to upload pictures than before.. I can see on my computer it's straight forward, maybe I was confused when I used the phone a short time ago, [edit] actually the darn phone app won't let me in unless I select "stuff I love" and need to click on subjects to follow before it lets me in.. grr just tested upload
  15. Imgur just changed something in thier policy, doesn't act like it used too Photobucket is changed for the worse, who's left
