  1. Welcome to the forum! Looks to be in really nice shape & nice to know the history. Stewmac.com has some nice repos that should fit. https://www.stewmac.com/Hardware_and_Parts/Tuning_Machines/Solid_Peghead_Guitar_Tuning_Machines/Golden_Age_Restoration_Tuners_for_Solid_Peghead_Guitar_with_Scallop-end.html Look at this site to help determine if it's a L48 (made '46-'71) or L50 ('32-'71) http://www.guitarhq.com/gibson2.html There's some members here that can tell the difference. Normally the FON can be seen through the treble f-hole This site may help if you find the FON https://www.guitarinsite.nl/serienummers-gibson_eng.php

    I picked this up for a song today. I'm planning on taking the tuners, add some new buttons and moving them to another guitar. I'll put some repos on this one. This one is quite weathered with one top crack and one side crack, nothing drastic. The neck is remarkably straight and the fretboard shows very little wear. I'm guessing it's a KG-32 but I'm not for sure. Mahogany back and sides, spruce top.
  3. You can go in your settings and change it back
  4. Rabs straightened most of us out. You must use your screen name pappy for the sign in then whatever your password is.
  5. We're coming up on #48. Sounds like you two had a great life and it looks like you gave her a great send off. Sorry for your loss but congratulations on the wonderful life you two shared. I really enjoy all the videos you two have out there and you'll have them to look back on as you carry on. Best wishes, Dave
  6. Sometimes a thin piece of rock maple over the existing plate will work
  7. All Parts makes nice replacements but you would have to add the pu cut outs.
  8. I learn something new every time I watch one of his videos. The biggest thing I learned this time is I need to become one of his close friends and let him take care of my guitars. I have a straight edge I use but I think I'm going to add an indicator to the end of it.
  9. I use the same gage. I set at the 12th .060"E to .040"e Neck relief .000"-.005" I do setups for friends. The biggest improvement I make for them is the nut slots. At the 1st .022"E dropping .002" per string to .012"e
  10. I had the same problem until I used my screen name. In your case login with Holiday Hoser then your pw.
  11. I got it! I did not notice that a space had been added to my name. Thanks all!
  12. I cannot login unless I reset my password every time. It does not accept my usual name and password. Everytime I leave the site it kicks me off and the only way I can log back on is to reset my password.

  14. Welcome to the forum! See if this helps https://www.gibson.com/Support/Serial-Number-Search
  15. Neither of my options are there Gibson '42 LG1 Martin D41 Special
  16. A few years ago I purchased a 1982 HD28 Custom built BRW, German spruce top built to the pre war specs. After a few years I hated the beefy neck, the bar frets and non adjustable truss rod. I know that adjusting the neck could be performed by compression with varying fret wire thickness. I had to modify it or get rid of it. After talking my luthier in to my request, he replaced the fret board with standard frets and added an adjustable rod and shaved the neck down. Now it’s one of my favorites. Look at some of the most famous guitars in the world and many of them have been altered. I wouldn’t be concerned about a decal. Go for it.
  17. My J45 Legend has an ink stamp on the neck block that represents the modern day serial number.
  18. At my age I know that anything fairly new I acquire will not become a sought after vintage in my lifetime so I wouldn’t worry about it and do what I want. I always liked Nicks J45 with the L5 looking headstock. Just this past year, Gibson had two models that I know of with the flower pot that would not normally have it. A J45 Custom walnut and a L1 F hole. Go ahead and customize it.
  19. I was guessing at his birth year
  20. I recommend going to the 40 series. They’re different animals.
  21. I had an AJ with walnut that is to date the loudest I’ve played.
