  1. I am quite sure it is fake by the type bridge using the screw driver type height adjustability. and the truss rod cover wrong kind and touching the nut. and so much more to really mention.
  2. I wish I could of helped, there are quite a few knowledgeable people here that can. I have got a few answers here that I couldn't get else where. Good luck.
  3. By wont stay in tune, I am curious. How often does it need tuned. I tune mine every hour or so sometimes more. I don't think about it much. That is a really nice guitar hope you get it worked out. I also use nut sauce. Have you tried a lube?
  4. Good luck , i have bought 4 new Gibson's in the last 4 years and i love them only had an issue with one. Its a 2011 limited edition classic white S-G standard and now that one is my regular go to guitar.I am still curious as if that was a mistake. lol
  5. really, it was sent out like that? That is the first one i have seen .
  6. My opinion is that is not what they had in mind when it left the factory.
  7. im sorry as i had my doubts about it being a Gibson for a minute. lol very unusual guitar. cant wait until someone educates us about it.
  8. Hello congrats on your S-G. i am curious what it looks like under the truss rod cover. that might help.
  9. I usually need both hands to count the mistakes I make in a days time, don't worry about it.
  10. I can understand Gibson not wanting to give you the part for free, but not to sell you the part seems a bit odd.
  11. Hello I noticed the situation here and wanted to ask if there was any way to keep the PRS being it would be hard to replace being a limited edition. I don't have a PRS but have heard good things about them and plan on checking one out. Maybe waiting a few months would allow to save a couple more bucks. I love my 2 S-Gs and wouldn't part with them but, I have got rid of a sweet guitar that wasn't a Gibson and I wish I still had it. Good luck.
  12. I learned something new. 61 -67. cool but pippy has a good point about the middle pick-up. it can be about as annoying as the volume knob location on a strat.
  13. very cool looking S-G. like the burst. So you like the BB1 and BB2 combination. I have not had a chance to play one yet.I bought the 2011 limited edition Classic white also available in silver burst.( awesome color.) S=G standard with BB1 and BB3 along with the 61 speed neck the fastess neck in the world as advertised and I am really impressed with it. is your body one piece just curious.
  14. There is alternatives to using a double neck also. Alex Lifeson uses a guitar stand and just walks up behind and plays I he has even caught a few other guitars out of mid air, but to answer your question. Yes, I am sure the C.S is built to more exacting tolerances. Tone can be what you want it to be thought. As for my 2011 S-G standard Limited Edition, it always satisfies my urge to rock or get funky. Hope this helps.
  15. Hey Pauly You just reminded me about a statistic i once heard. now i don't put much faith in it being true but maybe corporate has the right facts. OK this is it. most of the broken neck issues happen from dropping the guitar case during transport/ I wonder if it would be worth the investment to reinforce the case around the neck and headstock. But Gibson probably already did that. I am attaching a pix of my standard and case. I know it isn't necessary but its my baby. lol I forgot about the attachment style of the web site. i wont be adding the pix. sorry.
  16. change one string at a time. This will protect your set up.
  17. I wish they were still building them the good old way also, but in order to stay competitive they do what they do. Since there was less than a 1000 59s built I probably wont own one. I did however buy 3 new Gibson's since 2009 and have decided after that I would only buy the used ones preferably built in the 80s or older, it isn't hard to find a used Gibson that has been handled with kid gloves. Lets face it, everything changes. even the Gibson's we love.
  18. This is appalling to think a Luthier would do this in the first place. drop c and the 11-49 is what I use on my white S-G also and I have not had any problems like this. They should of told you this kind of damage could happen . but they would be wrong. I know how you feel about ethics and not telling their name but they deserve what they get for this.
  19. I have a 2009 special that is wired the same. Nothing to be concerned about.
  20. All great replies. My 2011 S-G standard has the 61 speed neck advertised as the fastess neck in the world. it is thin and feels nice, also came with burst bucker 1 and 3 combo with split coil. and even though I don't really use the push pull function It is becoming my favorite. raising and lowering the pups can change the tone as well.
  21. I bought the 2011 S-G standard and it came with the 61 thin neck or fast neck and burst bucker 1 and burst bucker 3 pups with coil tapping and it sounds like what you should try.
  22. I think I would have gone to the bank for a grain like that. It wont hurt it down the road. smart shopping.
  23. well Charlie that is the sad truth, especially when your not rich. that is a nice S-G. are those horns beveled or is it the light?
