  1. hey i just pulled the trigger on a 2008 advanced jumbo- waiting for it to arrive. ... anyone with experience with AJ's care to comment?
  2. hey there i am looking seriously at a used Limited edition 60's j-45. its a beautiful sunburst with white guard. It plays nice but looking for thoughts on this particular version of the classic j45?
  3. just picked up a 2001 Gibson WM-45. This is the second one i have purchased. What an awesome guitar, nice clear base and mids, comfortable neck and scale length.. real happy with it!
  4. Hey hoping for some guidance here. Any ideas on the worth of a les paul special from the mid 70's. Here is the catch- so- so tv- yellow refinish and at least one of the p90 is non-original. original pots are intact however caps have been changed. trying to gauge a reasonable offer for the guitar- thanks
  5. looks good to me- i have an es 335 from the 90's that was made in the nashville plant- looks the same- the only thing i am not sure about is the neck body joint. I can remember off had if the binding is done the same way. knobs, tuners and pickguard, nickel hardware, the frets, fingerboard binding and fingerboard wood all look good... what's he asking?

    NGD 345

    looks insane- congrats!! btw the upper bouts look a little skinnier than a typical es 335. i know gibson subtly changed the es 335 body a bit in the 60's 70's so does this one have a skinnier pointier upper bout or is just the angle of the photos- either way it looks unreal
  7. 2000 Gibson Les Paul Standard..... love this guitar- new acquistions that i got in a trade for a MIJ Fender Jazzmaster.. had to add some $$ but loving it..

    Hey all just picked up a les paul standard.... Ebony with cream appointments... Guitar dater project says it was built in 2000 in the Nashville factory .. Plays nice , neck is full but not a baseball thick... Nice weight.. Not a brick but heavy enough.. Anyways here's the questions... Is the guitar dater project accurate with dating? What type of pups were used during this era and lastly is in weight relieved or, chambered? I'll post some pictures soon.. Also what string gauge is best for Paul's?
  11. torn between two guitars. any insights in differences in tone and playability would be helpful. does the maple cap on the 60's tribute contribute to increased sustain or is it purely cosmetic. any other significant differences in construction between the two?
  12. The guitar and promo video seem great.. just curious as to any one has one and what their opinions are on the guitar..
  13. Hey- i am trying to get the most out of my ES 335- this is my first experience with the 335. I have got the PUPS height set to a tone i like and it sounds great when playing single string lead lines. my issue is it's tone/Tuning when fretting chords. The guitar seems a to sound a bit out of tune (very slightly) when playing/strumming chords. I have had the frets levelled and the intonation at the twelfth fret harmonic is good. I am in the process of replacing the bridge as it is a bit collapsed. The guy who did the set up tried to correct the bridge problem by playing with the saddle (re-radius-ing and adjusting string notches heights). Could this ultimately be the problem with the way the guitar sounds when fretting chords? I do not think i am pulling on the strings excessively when fretting the chords but perhaps i am still getting used to the shorter scale length on gibbies as opposed to fender guitars. any insight would be helpful
  14. Hey the Bridge on my es 335 is collapsing. i need to replace it- it was recommended that i go with a gotoh tuneomatic. anyone use this bridge?
  15. just threw some 11 gauge strings on my es 335- wow what an improvement...
  16. Thanks for the advice people. I actually lowered the neck and bridge pips and the guitar is performing much better.. Much less muddy so it seems to be taking distortion much better.. Loving the guitar!
  17. Hey i am still trying to dial in my 1995 es 335. love the guitar especially when playing single notes/double stop lead stuff. My problem is dialing in a nice semi crunchy tone when strumming/playing rhythm. I have been using a tc electronic dark matter distortion or a jeckyl and hyde distortion/overdrive pedal thru a fender deluxe reverb. I cant find an exact combo/setting that doesn't sound too muddy. I am not looking for a heavy metal/chugging or serious grunge sound. more classic rock-indie alt country-ish tone. any suggestions on pedals or settings would be great.
  18. Hey i recently acquired a 1994 Es 335 flamed sunburst that is beautiful. absolutely love the way the guitar feels and looks. I am typically a single coil guy (tele and jazzmaster) but the es 335 has always been a guitar i loved. Long story short i am having a difficult time dialing in a tone i like. I play mostly rock/indie type of music and i am finding that the guitar often is a bit muddy, dark and overly bassy. I play out of a fender deluxe reverb reissue and was looking for some suggestings in dialing in a nice articulate balanced tone prior to pedals. i guess once i get the clean tone dialed in i can begin to play with od and distortion, delay, fuzz stuff. any suggestions welcome....
  19. sorry about the microscopic photos but you get the idea. cool tiger/flame stuff
  20. sorry about the microscopic photos but you get the idea. cool tiger/flame stuff
  21. here is a shot of the body- nice flame thing going on... neck is thin front to back but plays real nice..
  22. I just picked up a 1996 es 335 that was made in the Nashville plant. I thought most es guitars were built on the Memphis shop.. Any significant differences? Difference in quality control? Or we're all es 335 from '96 produced in Nashville . Thanks
  23. hey just picked up a an es 335 from 1997. any feedback on the production of the es line in the mid ninties?
