  1. Dater project says, either Feb 5, 2011 #582 or 2014 #11088 But very little info
  2. No Buy a different set
  3. Looks like a nice Hummingbird.
  4. Always the nut behind the strings. Sorry had too 😶
  5. Although this is a Gibson forum. Many of us have more than 1 guitar. Stated last week the Fender Guitar forum will shutdown March 20, 2020. Join in other social media such as Facebook and Twitter
  6. Gibson released a statement saying they're not suing Heritage Guitar They said they "reminded Heritage of their contract they signed when the two split up"
  7. There is a single screw on either side of the pickup and a spring on the underside of the screw to the pickup base plate to provide tension.
  8. I see Long & Mcquade showing a B2 And Steve's music Toronto showing the TRB Gig By description can't tell whe the difference is, you'll have to go to the stores https://www.long-mcquade.com/136236/Guitars/Electric-Guitars/Gibson/Explorer-B-2-Satin-Ebony.htm?ref=suggestive-search https://stevesmusic.com/en/gibson-explorer-trb-gig-dsxb219-s.html
  9. Oh at first I hadn't seen what you're talking about, Strings seemed over the poles of the pickups. Wasn't till I zoomed in on your nut. Maybe post a big clear picture of the nut hosted by imgur.com or something instead of the thumbnail provided by the forum. Yeah I'd make them fix it
  10. Also remember he used a variac to lower the input AC voltage to get that mushy "brown" sound Of course he knew nothing about tube bias and fry the tubes

    Without any puctures, It'd be close to guessing what color car you have. And subject line same as your user name doesn't help
  12. My guitars have picked me, I don't pick them. I walk into a store wander around, don't get any feeling. Next day walk into the same store wander around don't get any feeling. One walk in, one day, and a guitar whispers try me. That's the one I pick up. Could take months of this process
  13. They won't reissue the COA See the responses in the Custom section
  14. Don't think there's anything to "worry " other then some light esthetic. Bindings are put on, guitar is stained/painted/nitro lacquer, then bindings are scrapped by hand with a razor blade. Its possible to have some stain /lacquer residue
  15. There are 2 points for the pickup to pivot on. Put a block of foam in the pickup cavety when the pickup is lowered it compresses the foam and keeps the pickup from twisting
  16. Hmm the Google drive link worked the other day. I do remember seeing a guitar with a volute at the back of the head stock. But we need pictures posted from a more permanent source
  17. Hard to see when I zoom in the picture gets blurry. But they have to join 2 coils of wire together somehow to make it a humbucker pickup I suspect you're seeing that connection as there are no pickup covers on the pickup
  18. Let's just say from May 11, 2011 and Jan 2, 2020 (9years) that the original poster has bought a guitar
  19. If it's the exact same guitar that's "only" $300 off, and GC is still going to make a profit as its called "mark up" You buy something mark it up 200%, then once in a while put out a 25% sale. Also GC gets back a lot of returns, sometimes for stupid little things, easy to put that out on a "inventory blow out sale" as well
  20. If you've sprayed the pots with cleaner and as you say work fine on their own.. Then the common denominator is??? The selector switch. Clean it too
  21. They us a single screw with a spring to raise or lower your pickup. The spring put a torque twist on the bottom of the pickup that causes the twist. That the pickup out, put a small block of foam in the pickup cavety, reinstall the pickup. That way the foam keeps the pickup level
  22. Part of the middle position is both volumes interact . Turn either one to zero produces zero sound. Just like being in either pickup and turning its volume to zero
  23. Carter's is pretty reputable. But if in doubt, call Gruhn's in Nashville. If you can't talk to George, then ask for for Greg Voros their head repair/restorer
  24. I thought the drum solo was there so the band and half the audience could go to the washroom
