  1. It’s had a head stock repair at some point in its life. Not the prettiest repair, but far from the worst repair I’ve ever seen.
  2. Hey giddy up; looks like a ES355 to me. Johnny
  3. Hey Eddie; In the early 90s there were a few if I remember correctly. The SG-1 was 24 frets and a single Hb. There was also the SG-X (no pick guard and single HB), and the SG-Z with a HB and a single (not p90), early to mid 2000s I remember one with a HB and a p90 in the neck. Probably a few others along the way. Pics of the one in question would definitely help. Johnny
  4. It looks like something trying awful hard to be an L5-CES. But I don’t think it’s a Gibson. I could be wrong, I’m not much of an ES guy. Johnny
  5. Hey Greg; It looks to be a 1987 US-1. One of the more than a few times Gibson took a swing a the competition. Cool find, enjoy it. Johnny
  6. Hey; From 2006-2016 these were re-issued. Not all of them had a custom shop indicators (Logos) on them, but there weren’t any regular production dc’s with these appointments at the same time. serial number format fits CS, with this serial I would say 2008. Fairly certain that’s what you’ve got. Hope that helps Johnny
  7. Awesome Selling a blue to fuel more blues. Johnny
  8. Hopefully because you want to and not because you need to, nice looking guitar. Good luck with your sale. Johnny
  9. No worries, I was a little abrupt. Gibson has used numerous serial formats over the years, and they don't always make sense. If you check the link I posted you'll get an idea of what I mean. Johnny
  10. TV yellow has always been my fav colour on these too (and the specials). I get all the rarity and demand stuff, just not worth it to me and where I am in life (and to be honest, not sure I'd ever spend that kind of cash on a guitar). I own both (not vintage or high end models) and my preference changes with mood. Didn't mean to rain on you or anything, it really is a sweet guitar. Johnny
  11. It's killer for sure. I know where there is an equally clean early 60's SG Junior for half that right now. Yeah I get its rarer than the SG, and to ME all that vintage gear is way over priced for the most part, kinda like vintage muscle cars. Some of that could just be due to the perspective from my side of the fence though. Johnny
  12. I'm sure it does, one day I will find out. (Just need the exchange rate to get better) Never bonded well with Teles, had one a while back, put just about every pick up in the neck, fav was a p90. Just could not get along with the neck. Have a Squire Tele right now, has a beefier neck which is helping the bonding process. Hmm....might have a soap bar somewhere in the parts boxes. Johnny
  13. That is gorgeous, but for that kind of cash there's a lot of other p90 guitars out there that would allow the peace present to the wife too. Johnny
  14. Lol no not SD, although he does have a staple pick up that's been screaming to go into a LPC in have. One day I'll find out if it sounds as good as it looks. That is a terrible terrible problem you have, especially with all the shops closed, can't buy what you cant touch.
  15. Yeah the noise isn't for everyone, but that tone. Maybe sacrilegious but you could always pop a 100 in the neck of one of those tele things you like so much.
  16. Yeah coulda been p100s and yeah you should kept it, everyone needs at least one with p90/p100. They are a wonderful beast.
  17. Think the Gems all had p90s though didn't they? Johnny
  18. Seriously? Two people already dated this guitar for you in your other thread about it, 1996. If you doubt us why keep asking? Contact Gibson direct - links on the home page for email and phone. Johnny Edit: here's a link from our host explaining the different serial number formats used over the years. https://www.gibson.com/support/serial-number-search
  19. As Kid pointed out, it is a 1996 model. For this serial format 1st and 5th #’s indicate year. Johnny
  20. Hey Pinch; What I do for these situations like mentioned and analyzed in this thread is use a toothpick. I use round ones, the diameter is near perfect, the points can be kinda long to ensure a tight fit to the bottom so I snap the point off. Drop of good old wood glue on the broken end and insert. Leave the rest sticking out until the glue dries (be sure to wipe up any smeared glue on the head stock face right away). Once dry snap off the excess, trim if required. You're all done. Hope the helps. Johnny
  21. Hey Kid, yeah these stretched over a few years for sure, maybe even in the late 80's early 90's. Various colors and burst and hardware options over the different runs, think some even came with a trem, want to say Kahler (know some L.P. Customs had the Kahlers in this same period), but that murky memory again. Johnny
  22. Hi TL5; What you have there is a 96 L.P. Studio Lite, were made for a few years in late 80's to midish 90's. Black hardware would have been stock. Lite due to chromite (balsa) inserts for weight relief rather than Swiss cheese or chambered, if I recall correctly, but my memory can be murky at times. Hope that helps. Johnny
  23. Umm never, LP Custom still has split diamond as per the Sarg's link.
  24. Looks like $600-$800 (CDN) ON reverb http://reverb.com/marketplace?query=2007 gibson melody maker Johnny
