  1. I have an '01 Classic that I bought used. There are some, very minor quality issues (roughly scraped neck/fingerboard/body binding, etc), but other than that, I've never really had any other problems with any other Gibson guitars. I DO however have a problem with this!: This is the GLPC pickguard that I ordered direct from Gibson. I've since corrected the issue myself (thank God for razorblades), but the ball was definitely dropped on this one!
  2. Not to rain on your parade, or dog Epis (because I own one), but the money people spend on upgrading them could be put towards a better guitar. I have a completely stock '02 Epi LP Standard Plus (my first new LP. Bought for $499), and never once thought about upgrading/modding it, unless you count "aging" and removing one of the pickup covers "modding"? Not that it's perfect (the tone pots are complete crap), but not worth the money IMHO, especially considering that if I were to ever try and sell it (which I never will), no matter HOW much money I were to spend on upgrades, it will never be worth more than it is now, which is probably somewhere in the $150-$250 range. So why waste the money?
  3. The hardware is gold-plated (VERY thin plating), so it can tarnish/fade in a very short period of time, especially after heavy playing. As far as the finish goes, there are a number of products available online. I don't polish my guitars, so I can't really comment on that, but I'm sure someone more knowledgeable on that subject will be happy to answer that question for you.
  4. The "finish" on the VMs (Studio Fadeds) is thinner than a sheet of paper, so it's possible, maybe not very common, but possible for some of the stain/dye to bleed through the nitro. And, YES they DO have a nitro finish, it's just VERY thin!:-
  5. You = THE MAN! That was pretty awesome!:(
  6. I did odd jobs (mowing lawns, washing windows, etc) when I was a teen. I got my first "real" job when I was 19, and almost 8 years later (Monday is my 8 year anniversary), I'm STILL working there!
  7. Acoording to Henry J, there is no "real deffinition of BFG". He said the around the plant it stands for "Bare Finish Guitar".
  8. Any pics of the body/headstock (full frontand back of both)?
