  1. I have a Blue Flower Pbass and Blue Flower Strat. I think they are 2004 reissues.
  2. Sandpaper or acetone would be next..,
  3. PS- I once had an SG board that my tech darkened with stain. Ask your tech.
  4. I oil whenever board starts to look dry or color starts getting lighter. Heavy dose. Maybe 3 times per year tops. I think one could do once a season if one wanted. I drizzle it on the board and spread it around with my finger. Let sit for 15 min or so and wipe off excess. This of course is for Guild Starfire bass, Fender bass, and Gibson bass. Don;t know how LP with big inlays would fare with this heavy treatment.
  5. The Gator GC-ELEC-XL Deluxe ABS Molded Case for Extra Long Baritone Guitar works, too. I had to compress the styrofoam on the inside of the lid in the area over the face of the bass a little (using my heel) so it would not be such a tight fit but the mod worked and case fits like a glove now. Lid shuts all the way with ease now. It shut fine before but was a little bug for my taste so I compressed the styrofoam with my heel about 1/2cm. Length of interior is perfect even with my extra long Dunlop locking strap button. There is about 1" from intierior to edge of headstock. Bass doesn't;t slide around inside and the neck channel fits perfect. Has lotsa storage room and very light even with the bass inside. Balkances well while carrying.
  6. 39k$ And you can keep the case!😀👍
  7. Why is this so expensive? What is "Korina"? I didn't;t think Explorers were so special. Never knew much about them though. https://www.elderly.com/collections/all/products/gibson-explorer-1963

    Looks just like a Byrdland
  9. Iirc i had deluxe original tuners on my ~1987 SG go bad. So not a new prob at all. i also had an early ‘90’s sg with an impossible to keep in tune g string.
  10. Thanks, neither did I. I am not sure when they started. Grog, Beautiful collection. Are they all short scales?
  11. Thanks. Yes, it is. And for under a thousand bucks, too!
  12. I cannot believe I am saying this but I think it is the best bass I have ever owned. Have had it about 6 months now. I also have had a Ric 4003, American Vintage Pbass, blue flower PBass, and a Guild Starfire bass. It is punchier and has more clarity, kick, and power than any of them. No dead spots. Breezy play from the short scale. I am shocked because the last Gibson Bass I tried was atrocious (2011 SG Bass). No amount of money or mods I threw at it could change the horrible tone (absolutely no presence and kick, and sound muffled and dead and like you are playing thru a chorus pedal, or did I have a lemon?). I had been looking for another short scale bass, as my left hand doesn't like long scales anymore, and I saw the LPTDC basses and thought they looked beautiful. So back in Dec 2019 I gave one a try in a shop and was happily surprised. I got one a couple weeks later in worn brown. Only mods I have done are shielding the cavity to make it noiseless and to replace the three point bridge with the Hipshot (just for low E string intonation correction purposes). That is less mods needed than on any of my other basses. The LPTDC comes with lotsa nice features, too like the ultra light tuners, single coil/humbucker option push pull pot, and nice worn brown finish. The maple neck gives the back of the neck a tiger stripe look through the finish. The bass has a great sound and could be used for any style music. It kind of sounds like a cross between a Pbass and a 4003. But, as I said, punchier, clearer, and bigger tone than either, imho. Only downside is it was originally a little neck heavy, but the combo of the Hipshot bridge weight, and cantilevering effect of dunlop strap locks, with a stickier strap, and replacing plastic control knobs with heavier chrome dome knobs added enough weight and cantilevering to offset that. I'd post pics but page rejects and tells me I can only post 378kB of pics. Anyway, these are fantastic basses for less than $1kUSD What has your experience been with yours?
  13. Did someone replace the neck with a non-Gibson neck? shouldnt the headstock serial matchbthe serial on the sticker in the body? Also, some of the trap inlays look off center. Not an expert, just guessing.
