  1. Hi guys, Was wondering if anyone knew what the Gibson Guitar Showroom in Toronto is? Is it a Gibson guitar shop? A restaurant like 'Hard Rock Cafe' only with Gibson guitar paraphernalia? Or is a rehearsal space? Or concert hall? Thanks in advance....
  2. OK I might be the minority here. But I really do love the look of this guitar....But I will have to agree, if I'm shelling out for another ES-355 it better have an ebony fretboard....
  3. What would make you believe it was built in Nashville? All ES guitars are built in Memphis (check the label). Unless I'm missing something here?
  4. I wasn't only referring to his J-200....He's got Anna Faris as well....
  5. Hey guys, Chris Pratt (star of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' & married to Anna Faris), posted pics of his custom J-200: https://m.facebook.com/PrattPrattPratt/photos/pcb.909433459088484/909429869088843/?type=1&source=49 Lucky bastard....Winning....
  6. Hey man, Back in the day (2001ish) Nelly Furtado used to perform with a custom Gibson with the Azores Flag on it (You can see a glimpse of it in her 'Turn Off The Light' International video and some of her older live performances. Can anyone tell me if its a custom J-100 or J-200? I use to think it was a J-200 but now I'm not so sure.

  7. maple body 1-piece mahogany neck ebony fretboard 24-3/4" scale length two '57 Classic humbuckers ABR-1 bridge Bigsby vibrato Grover tuners gold hardware multi-ply cream body binding ebony finish I know cos I have the same guitar. But you know you could've just Googled the specs.... So where did you pick up the guitar? They're hard to come by....The 2011's that is....
  8. You purchased an ES-355 not an ES-335. Based on the Serial it looks to be a 2011 Custom Shop Ebony with Bigsby. So you would have the ebony fretboard as opposed to the Ritchlite ones on the 2014 models. Where did you purchase the guitar?
  9. Really? Geez maybe I need to be educated more. The ES-137 the logo is off and the ES-137 on the headstock is off centered. With regards to the Les Paul, the headstock looks poor. I was sure these 2 were fake....
  10. Hi guys, From the ad below I know ES-137 is for sure a fake, I'm sure the Les Paul is too, can you guys confirm my suspicions? Gibson guitars for sale on Kijiji http://www.kijiji.ca/v-guitar/mississauga-peel-region/gibson-guitars-for-sale/1031278378
  11. So I walk into a local guitar store and I see an ES-355 hanging on the back wall. Immediately I get drawn as I thought Gibson discontinued the ES-355 in 2012 (after the raid which left them without the ebony fretboard materials). So naturally I thought it was a brand new Custom Shop 2011 Antique Cherry with Bigsby. To my surprise, it had a 2014 Serial Number and was stamped on the back of the headstock as 2014. I checked out Gibson's website but can't find any Gibson ES-355's listed anywhere.... Anyways, I did a search on eBay turns out there are 2014 ES-355's....I think the difference being that the fretboard is Richlite as opposed to ebony and instead of the standard black 'Gibson Custom Shop' case the new ones ship with a brown case.... http://www.ebay.ca/itm/2014-Gibson-ES-355-w-BIGSBY-Antique-Cherry-w-COA-tags-MINT-UNPLAYED-es335-/191377321638?pt=Guitar&hash=item2c8efa2ea6 This would look great next to my 2011 Ebony one....
  12. Has anyone else noticed that the back of the 2013 and 2014 models of the J-200 for both Natural and Sunburst is not as distinct/predominant as previous years? Maybe the flamed maple wood hasn't been as good in recent years?
  13. Sorry to hear that. I live in the GTA, I would've gladly checked out the guitar for you. One thing with 12Fret is most of their older (used) guitars have been worked in. It would be very hard to find one in pristine condition. If you like that relic look that's the place to go. I personally find most of their older guitars are overpriced....
  14. The reason why I asked Jayyj is cos, well I have a 2011 VOS ES-355 Antique Ebony with Bigsby, but if you checkout eBay, there is currently a 2011 VOS ES-355 for sale. The seller says it was a limited Keith Richards model. It looks like an exact replica or close to of Keith's, the Bigsby is that faded all gold look (most of the other VOS ES-355's were had black paint on it). But I guess the seller could've easily replace the Bigsby or rubbed the black paint off himself. All other minor tweaks was probably done by the seller (ie - reversed the bridge to face the opposite way, remove the pickguard)....
  15. Hey guys, Just curious did Gibson ever make a custom ES-355 Keith Richards model? I know back from approx 2008 to 2011 Gibson made those Ebony and Cherry colored ones with the Bigsby sometimes they would even make VOS versions of these guitars (calling them Antique Ebony or Faded Cherry)....But although the Ebony colored ones looked almost identical to Keith's except of course Keith removed the red/dark pickguard and the Bigsby was not painted black, but was all Gold....Did these models ever use Keith Richards name on them? Just curious....
