  1. http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Knobs/Dome_knobs/Dome_Knob.html http://www.allparts.com/knobs You'll have to figure out for yourself which ones will fit based on what's already installed on the guitar.
  2. I always thought the ES-150 had a longer scale (25.5") vs. the ES-125 (24.75") although I can't find a definitive answer - conflicting reports on the intertube.
  3. No offense but the ideas you've put forward would not help your problem they would make it worse. Do you mean capo marks on the back of the neck? If yes you might be able to steam them out or have someone steam them out for you. Unless it's a beater maybe take it to a shop? Or get set up to do some learning for a bit - good luck! Again - don't sand the back and don't use wood glue.
  4. Just because it's shielded doesn't mean it's shielded correctly. I think SamBooka's idea of a picture would be helpful. Otherwise best of luck. (not trying to be rude) dave
  5. I can't help with that thread but I can tell you that you need to shield the control cavity on your guitar to reduce the noise. Here's a youtube video that will get you started. Careful - the sound is loud and annoying at the beginning. The video isn't a perfect fit for your situation (strat copy not LP) but will give you the concepts you need to continue your research. Good luck, dave
  6. D'oh! Hmm - maybe I should go edit my post and then say you didn't read it right! Ha! have a good one dave
  7. In my rush to show how smart I am I forgot to mention that the fret board markers are usually parallelograms on the ES175 and dots on the ES125 like the guitar in the pictures. That oughta learn me.
  8. No offense but it's the wrong color, wrong tailpiece and wrong knobs for ES175. Tailpiece and knobs could have been changed but why would they have been? Knobs maybe. Tailpiece maybe, I guess. But you're still left with the color which looks an awful lot like a Gibson ES-125C. And my learned opinion is probably worth exactly what I just charged for it! Ha! Nice guitar though as long as it's not too expensive. Should be less than $2k - again in my opinion... Good luck (not being sarcastic) dave
  9. now that ^^^^^^ is a nice guitar!
  10. What are the numbers on the paper from? Here's some info: http://vintage-guitars.blogspot.ca/2006/08/gibson-l-30-l-37.html
  11. Had a chance to try these out today and unfortunately the pole piece spacing is different than on my existing (Seymour Duncan Antiquity) pickup. Rats. The covers look good though. If I didn't already have a pickup that I really really like in the guitar I'd just buy one of the Lindy Fralin P-90s that would fit. Just posting this so the next person along this path will have the info.
  12. There are lots of options re: replacement tuners. Google is your friend. If you're lucky you'll be able to find info somewhere re: the exact specs for the tuners you have already. Maybe (maybe) Gibson will even be able to help you. Then just search till you find replacements that fit. It's not a big deal to fill existing holes if you don't find ones that fit but I think you're making the right decision re: avoiding that. Some suppliers include: www.stewmac.com www.allparts.com www.grguitars.com These suppliers might be able to help you find a match as well. Good luck!
  13. I wish they would relent. What difference does it make to them? Even their new re-issues have the zig zag tailpiece I don't like. Found a cheap chinese one on eBay - have to see how that works out. Happy New Year!
  14. Hi - I love the vintage ES175 style tailpiece. The solid ones with the embossed parallelograms or whatever they are on top like in this picture. Anybody got a source for them? There were some new ones one eBay a while ago but the seller has disappeared. There are vintage ones occasionally but I'm having a hard time paying $200 for a tailpiece. Thoughts? Tips? Happy New Year!
  15. I should give credit for that find to SamBooka - he told me they were making them and google did the rest - I ordered a few from the above company - I'll post results here and in the vintage forum. Happy New Year!

  17. If you want the angled ones like the old ES-125 Lindy Fralin is making them now.
  18. and success! http://angela.com/lindyfralinpremiump90dogearneckpositionpickupcoverblack.aspx I hope these will fit my existing Seymour Duncan Antiquity P-90 or I'll have an excuse to buy a new pickup....
  19. Hey Nick - thanks - I understand - I've tried that before but didn't have any luck. Sam - that's great news - thanks! I found this page on the Fralin site but haven't had any luck finding just the covers. I'll update when I have news. Couldn't find a contact link for Fralin... Short Dogear P-90's http://www.fralinpickups.com/p90s.asp
  20. Great info - thanks! I would like to get tuning machines with taller posts if I could find a supplier.
  21. Can anyone else confirm re: tapered headstock time frames? Thanks! Gonna revisit this thread in January and try and fix the pickup cover...
  22. can anyone help me with links to what the Chinese environmental standards are?
