  1. Don't know if I'd blame the factory. Who knows where that marking originally occurred Could be a GC/MF return and resold as new. Hopefully your next one looks just as nice and "defect" free Waiting for the new pictures
  2. Just don't look under the screw/nut holding the pickguard on , you'll probably see a dent in the finish.
  3. Looks fine to me, Wings on the back of the headstock, posts not screws on bridge
  4. Typically anytime someone uses the words "this is only X of Y and is rare " usually means the seller is try their best to gouge the buyer for a lot more money I would think that lefties are more "rare" than the right handed guitars in any production line. Good luck on your purchase
  5. Gibson doesn't even release how many guitars they made last week. Kind of hard to say about 50yrs ago
  6. Actually car vins tell you a lot about the car. Color tone, engine size, options code etc Guitar serials not so much, that's the hand written code under the pickups in the pickup cavety
  7. Send them to George Gruhn of Gruhn's Guitars in Nashville Mans a walking encyclopedia and can give honest appraisal
  8. I've been wanting to say "You can't handle the truth "
  9. @Sgt. Pepper right flatness I think he's confused between wide fretboard and narrow fretboard
  10. as I read the posts here.. are you sure you're not confusing Fretboard radius (7.25", 9", 12" , 16", 22") which is how flat a fretboard is and what happens to notes when you bend a string. vs fretboard width , which is how wide the fretboard is , some classical guitars have really wide fretboards vs standard acoustics vs electrics. and then there's scale length whether it's a very short scale Byrdland, vs LP scale vs that other company that has longer scales
  11. all you have to do is move the wire coming from the pickup to the volume and move it to the opposite volume (both pickups of course) but why would you want to be reversed from every other guitar on the planet?
  12. 50's and "modern " is basically the placement of the tone cap.
  13. You don't use linear pots for volume controls, Volume control doesn't work in a leaner fashion, Just got with good CTS, or RS Guitar Works pots, Make sure tolerance is low %, and shoot for a pot with as close to value. You'd be surprised a 500k pot measuring 400-460k ohms
  14. Everyone seems to be chasing the ground wires. But the original story on page 1 said he put covers on his pickups and did his own wax putting some how, then started buzzing. Sounds like messed up putting covers on
  15. Looks good to me, the TOM provides up/down motion to adjustments for action height
  16. Maybe me zooming in on these pictures on my phone isn't giving me clarity to see what the problem is. If it's just a bit of lacquer on the fretboard its probably pretty minimal. Lacquer will wear off the fretboard easy enough over time Sure there's "worse" QC than this
  17. @Lukef you have to use a photo hosting site like imgur.com to post the img/jpg link images here. This site only allows thumbnail pictures
  18. @Lukef hope you're not confusing terms, Bridge vs stop tail. Many people prefer lowering the stop tail all the way down. The tail has the strings pulled through them The bridge has your saddles for intonation and also does your action height
  19. A refinish on a real 55-60 would probably lower the value, over just leaving the years of wear and tear on it. On A reissue, probably won't make a difference
  20. I like Guitar Fetish strap locks https://www.guitarfetish.com/REDESIGNED-Chrome-Strap-Locks-Pair-Straplok-style-HEAVY-DUTY_p_598.html And Godin straps, lots of choices lots of different prices https://godinguitars.com/product-category/accessories/straps/page/4
  21. I meaning you're probably not going to cover up the screw holes from were the robot tuners once were
  22. Robots had several different auto tuners . Lots of different mounting screw holes If you undo the 4 little screws in the back, you will see a PCB board, So you won't be able to just change 1 MCK pot, you'll need a new wiring harness "Something you'll be proud of " Doubt it, buy another guitar,
  23. I'm zooming in on my phone, I don't see much. After you put some real milage on it, will the Nicks on the back and scratches from the pick on the front make you want to sell?
  24. @glasjack you have to use a image sharing website like imgur.com @jl
  25. Looks like the neck/headstock has a Norlin volute, I'd say real
