  1. I have just uploaded some now, along with the email from Gibson. It is from 2002. nothing in the control cavity
  2. Hi, I am wondering if anybody could shed some light on this guitar i have bought. I believe its a 1993 Les Paul r9 (i have a early email from Gibson to confirm) s/n is 31032 and it has the Gibson custom shop logo on the back The s/n matches the 1993 Les Paul Classic guitars. In the pickup cavity's its stamped Yamano and also signed Tom M also stamped reissue in the other pickup cavity. How can i tell what it is? I have sent Gibson a few emails and had nothing back. Any help would be great!

  4. Good afternoon, I have a 2010 les paul custom in silverburst and i am looking at swapping out the hardware to a full black set, can anybody tell me if the set would do the job? Many thanks. http://www.rig-talk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=159303
  5. I have had a few gibson guitars but never a les paul,I have just bought a traditional but I havnt had the guitar yet as its coming over from the states. Over here in the uk Gibson custom shops are alot more than over in the states. The guitar i have seen and offered i have been told is a ltd ed, with a retail of £4900 over here. I fancy a high end gibon but i cant afford the prices over here. The martin i have i never really play so i though i could do a trade and get my hands on a custom shop Gibson but i just not to sure if its worth it. £1000 is about $1600
  6. Sorry that wasnt the right listing :-( i have just posted the correct one.
  7. Good afternoon, I am new to the Gibson Les Paul family, I have had a few 335 and a few accoustics but never a les paul. I have spotted this guitar on ebay but i cant find much info on the guitar. Is there anybody that could give me a few pointers on it, first if its a good price if there are better options out there. I have been offered a trade for a les paul traditional in chicargo blue that i have never opened and my 2008 Martin D28. He would like both my guitars and £1000 cash. Many thanks. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gibson-Les-Paul-Aged-58-Custom-Shop-R8-Limited-Edition-/321501833948?pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV&hash=item4adb00aadc#ht_215wt_1348
  8. i can pick a 96 for £1500, have you any idea of a UK dealer that i may be able to pick one up from?
  9. Morning, Just a quick question what would you expect to pay for a used j-200 studio, I went to try one yesterday new, for £2100, i have watching the used price for a few weeks now and they seem to be selling for £2000 used, well i say selling, thats what people are asking for them. I have around £1650, do you think i could pick one up for that, or do i need to save some extra cash up? Many thanks.
  10. i mean the bridge, pickups tuners and so on.
