  1. The newest VG Price Guide is one way to get an idea of value, along with watching what a guitar actually sells for on Reverb, Gbase & eBay. https://imgur.com/9k7X8jG Yours has been modified to the point that it will be worth less than it would have been if it were original.
  2. These folks may know a bit more than most guitar shops. They have been dealing in left-handed guitars for years...... https://www.southpawguitars.com/
  3. I have two published shipping total books, they only go up to 1979. There is no mention of left handed guitars, at least in the ES-330s.
  4. I was under the impression that Memphis built hollow bodies came with that TRC. Now that Memphis is closed down & hollow body production has resumed at Nashville, they likely are no longer using it..... My two ES Les Pauls both had it in 2015 & 2016.
  5. I’ll give it a try..... https://i.imgur.com/mZewfsgl.jpg It takes me there, but acts like there is something wrong......
  6. Same thing happened to me. Do we have to do something different to post photos from imgur?
  7. The L-5S has the same body shape & uses that truss rod cover. The cases are interchangeable. [img]https://i.imgur.com/9wfdivN.jpg[/img]
  8. Gibson changed the design through the sixties and into the seventies. This era they tried changes to lower production costs & many were not too well received. My 1972 EB-4L used the same basic body & is slightly different than yours. The neck heels evolved quite differently through the years also. [img]https://i.imgur.com/NEhzGqwl.jpg[/img]
  9. My book lists the serial number as either a 70, 71 or 72. With the embossed pickup, I would date it as a 1972. You can remove the back plate and see if you can read any of the pot codes. It should be similar to 1377248. 137=CTS, 72=year manufactured 1972 & 48= week of year manufactured. This will help verify the year. It can’t be any older than the pots.
  10. Thanks. For whatever reason, I limited my amp collecting to this era.........
  11. I believe that they were called HC-12 cabinets. They were a larger cabinet for the GSS-100 amp. I have only seen one before. Here is a shot of my amp with the more common, smaller 2-10 speakers. Over 40 years ago, I had an empty set of these smaller cabinets that had one 12” speaker mounted at a 45 degree angle with a smaller horn or speaker also. They must have had several less common versions. These, along with the GSS-50 combo amp were Gibson’s 2nd attempt at marketing a solid state amp in the middle to late sixties. They had one combo amp in the Crestliner Series.
  12. The Les Paul Signature had a jack in both places. Low Impedance on the bottom & high on the top.
  13. The Shure A95U works well as is, but you need an unbalanced male XLR to 1/4 mono chord to go with it. Hosa makes a chord that I’ve bought in the past. The Les Paul Personal actually has a stereo jack for an output jack. The tip is guitar & the extra contact is for the mic if I recall correctly. Mine came with the same chord that was shipped with the Les Paul Professional, but I’ve seen a part number for a different chord that likely came with some of the Les Paul Personals. I’ve never seen one & all of these original chords are hard to come by. I’ve bought a “Y” chord adapter to split
  14. Must be original! I would imagine without the varitone switch that they left the big choke out also.............
