  1. Were/are there any years/models of the ES 330 that have a shape like that of the Epiphone Casino? The 330s I have seen tend to have a compressed, squat, 'mickey mouse' shape compared to the Casino which looks more elongated and skinnier.
  2. What material is used for the Gibson logo inlay on the headstock of modern custom shop acoustics? Abalone? Something else?
  3. What was the retail price on a left-handed Epiphone G400 back in the day? I'm talking about the original plain model, not the G400 Pro with coil splitting that seems to have replaced it. I bought one back in 2011 and no longer play it so want to sell it but am not sure what I should list it for.
  4. Is there a full list of cleaning or disinfecting agents safe to use on Gibson guitar finishes and fretboards?
  5. What modern sunburst Casinos have had a nitro finish? So far I know of the John Lennon Limited model and the Elitist "1965" Casino Vintage Outfit model. Are there any others?
  6. What type of pots would come stock on a 2008 R7?
  7. The smell becomes much less after the guitar has been out of the case for a day or several. And then after I leave it in the case, it's smelly again. Just the empty case alone reeks of the smell.
  8. While I love Gibsons, I do not love the strong smell (vanilla-scented) that the Gibson cases have. The smell gets on the guitar and sometimes bothers me while I'm playing it. How do I get rid of this smell?
  9. What is the proper string gauge for a J185-12? I will soon be the new owner of one. It will be my first every 12 string guitar.
  10. Gibson ended up replying to my email and confirming this is a 2008 model.
  11. I recently acquired this used lefty Gibson R7 (photos from the original seller) and would like to figure out what year it is without opening it up to look at the pots. Neither the warranty nor the COA include a date. The original case still smells like vanilla. I'm guessing 2008? Full photo album here. P.S. I did fix the reversed bridge.
