  1. Hi, I am upgrading a 2014 Gibson LP Classic that had a 14db booster switch to a standard 4 pot PCB. I overlooked that the jack quick connector on my old setup has 3 prong connector, but the PCB I purchased has only a 2 prong connector. The pickups and the toggle switch seem to connect fine. What is the most cost effective and least labour intensive way to get my current 3 prong connector output jack (with three wires) to be be compatible with the two prong quick connector on the PCB? I may need to buy a new input jack with a two prong quick connector... but I am trying to avoid this as I will be selling the guitar. Thanks for any info
  2. Enjoy the hunt...its as much fun as the playing 🙂 Careful...buying one leads to 5 in the next decade 🙂 I love a goldtop...many options

    Pickup covers - sizing

    thanks for the information ...yes they must be the 49.21mm spacing. I also found them at guitarpartsfactory a set of two... labelled vintage spacing...thanks
  4. I am looking to cover my Zebra coil 57 classic and Super 57 pickups in my 2010 Les Paul. I measured edge of the pole to edge of pole of both the neck and bridge seem to be about 48-49mm. Would the 50mm Spaced covers work? Thank you.
  5. Yes GluBoost is a great product. I didn't realize that they have products for nitrocellulose finishes. I will take a deeper look
  6. Isn't that the truth...a simple drop fill becomes a compete refinish in no time at all haha
  7. Well, I bought the guitar to play rather than just hang on the wall. I don't have much experience with nitro finishes so I wasn't sure if I should even touch it. I have read some polish compound used sparingly will get out some fine scratches but I think the larger stuff I will just leave alone 🙂
  8. I recently piked up a Gibson Les Paul 2010 RO Custom Shop in black. Love the tone and love the sound. I had some questions about possible finish fixes on the guitar. There are a couple of scuff marks and what appears to be runs in the Nitro, but only one is raised. If this not a run, is it early phases of finish checking? I have seen these lines on a couple of other guitars and don't know if they can be polished out or not? Also, what is the best fix for the ding in the neck. In the past I have used super glue and sanded smooth, but I don't want to sand through the finish What is the best fix for these issues or should I just leave them alone? Pics...Pictures
  9. wheatfieldconvention: thanks for the reply. Sounds like a great guitar and providing the info about the serial etc... I know the es 335 I have seen were always engraved and couldn't tell if ALL es series were engraved or not - more curious than anything. ya i like the thin neck profile myself as I have spent most of my life playing Ibanez guitars with very thin profiles. thanks
  10. Has the es 335 line always engraved the serial number and made in USA on the back of the headstock? What about the es 339 is the number engraved with the gibson custom lower near the neck is that engraved or branded on or decal type? I am looking to buy online because the closest music store is about a 5 hour drive from where I live. I have seen many pictures but never have held one in my hand other than at the music store and cant remember about the back of the headstock. I may make the drive again...but there are better deals online of course thanks for any advice regarding if the numbers are engraved or a decal type concept
  11. Many of you will know the answer to this - I hope Has the es 335 line always engraved the serial number and made in USA on the back of the headstock? What about the es 339 is the number engraved with the gibson custom lower near the neck as that engraved or branded on? I am looking to buy online because the closest music store is about a 5 hour drive from where I live. I have seen many pictures - but dont want to be taken of course!!! I may make the drive...but there are better deals online of course thanks for any advice regarding if the numbers are engraved or a decal type concept
  12. awesome replies everyone...what a kind welcome...thank you
  13. Hey everyone. I've been playing guitar for 25 years. I have a couple of gibson guitars - amongst others. I have a red Es 335 and a vintage burst 339! I have always trusted my local guitar tech for set up and and minor mods. However, he has now retired and moved away! Ya I know. There is some young kid in the shop now that charges and arm and a leg for his work. Where did you learn? I've always wanted to take a course...but in the small town I live its just not available. The videos on youtube seem very "standard" and and I havn't found any specific for the two models I mentioned. Is there a dvd series out there that focuses on the semi hollow set ups and mods? I would love to be able to tweak my own guitars...but I want to learn from someone that knows the es 335 and 339 especially well. I dont want to watch a video on someone setting up a Jem 777 or something like that hahaha!!! Any links about measurements of string heights relating to string gauges or videos that I would be able to purchase - I would appreciate. Tools needed ...how to use the tools etc...Thanks for your time take care psp
