  1. Hi... wow this is an amazing acoustic family... love especially the 12 string Guild... that's something on my wanna-have-list still... Greetings PIT...
  2. Hi there... I have modified my Guitar-Rack and my family looks like this now... Greetings PIT...
  3. Hi there... the pickguard still is firm to the guitar... ...I love my guitar... I have a made some vids with it... and I dare to post them here... ...far from perfect... http://youtu.be/a3_TQB1UGiU and have made some new pictures... LINK Have a wonderful weekend... :D Cheers PIT... :)
  4. I see... oh I forgot to mention I removed the old glue-ply from the backside of the guard by simply rubbing it off with my fingers before putting the new one onto it... took a bit of patience but worked out pretty easily surprisingly... Greetings PIT...
  5. yes ...and mine is a 2008 one, too... maybe it's a year they didn't do that well in general... ?
  6. Hi... I contacted my dealer of course but he didn't come far as well... I know that Gibson makes two different types of PGs... but you won't get here in Germany none of them... I am shure mine is from Gibson, but it's the cheaper one without engraved flowers... however it looks like that the pattern is sealed because mini-scratches on the guard did not do any harm to them... However I wouldn't want to pay big money for a piece of plastic which did not stick to the guitar as it should have for the guitar's retail-price... If I'd not found this solution I'd have gone with a s
  7. Hi there... I wanted to give some update on my SJ-200 and the pickguard issue... my die-hard internet search has dug out some stuff which I read is used by most of the guitar-manufacturers... it's called "3M 467 MP – 200MP ADHESIVE TRANSFER TAPE" made by the company 3M... ...got that from ebay... I covered the back of the pickguard, cut it out and put it on the guitar... it's now three days ago, it still is firm and I hope it stays like this... Gretings, PIT... :D
  8. Hi... sorry for getting back late... yes, exactly that's how I did it... it was easy, because it was only really fixed in the middle area of the guard... I am disappointed of GIBSON in the regards of this issue !!!... The guitar was 2800 EURO overhere in Germany (somewhat 3800 US$)... and then they use this kind of crap for such great guitar... I even would buy one, but it looks impossible from here. I contacted my dealer as well, but he did not succeed as of yet now... I leave it off for the time being until I find a solution... Cheers PIT... :(
  9. Hi there... I am interessted in this question as well... the pickguard on my SJ-200 slowly came off at various corners and will not stick to the guitars top anymore... I am diappointed ... the first time that I am not happy with quality of a Gibson guitar... I have removed it now entirely, which was not a big deal anymore... Thanks & Greetings PIT... :(
  10. Thanks... actually you're right... historical correct would be Goldtop. This was a special run in 2007 named "Popular Demand Series" see attached pics... Cheers PIT...
  11. man, this picture is awesome... Greetings PIT...
  12. Hi Tim, you're welcome... Thanks, have a great Christmas time, too Greetings PIT...
  13. Hi, I have no idea what brand knob this is... that was a knob I found in my "this & that" box with all kind of stuff in... it's some replacement knob I assume I bought here in Germany in an online shop... I am sorry I have no idea whether it would fit onto a Junior... I would think so... maybe you have to enlarge the hole of the knob a bit or squeeze the two bits on the axe of the pot a bit - very carefully. Greetings PIT...
  14. great guitars... PIT... :)
  15. Hi there... your R6 could be a sister to mine... which is also from 2007... and was part of a so-called "POPULAR DEMAND-series". Great gang anyway... Greetings, PIT...
  16. these are mine... 2008 SJ200 - 2003 ES-335 - 2007 LP R6 - 2006 LP R9 PIT... :D
  17. Hi, the Gibson deluxe are these with the screw-nut, aren't they? I don't like these Gibson Deluxe at all... I had these on three Guitars factorywise (1 x 1996 LP Studio GEM, 1 x 1992 LP Standard and a 1997 SG Special)... I even had some tuning issues with these... They are running too easy... The press-in only ones are not weak or sloppy at all... I have equipped all in all 6 guitars with these vintage-typish tulips over the years and on my R6 and R9 these are installed factorywise... which speaks for itself I would say... Greetings, PIT...
  18. Hi there, I am from Germany... I am stupid...:o your Link directly to the video was too big for me to see it... What I meant is the YouTube link which is obviously part of your signature... this is going to MS instead of YT... sorry for confusing you... Greetings, PIT... :)
  19. Hi, they are made of wood and wood is a natural material... every tree is grown different... yeah and maybe the circumstance under which the guitars have aged over the years do have some influence as well... Are the tuners the same type? I am no die-hard expert... that is what came to my mind... Greetings PIT... :)
  20. this is my sunburst R6... \:D/ comes always different on pics depending on the lighting situation... PIT...
  21. Me too... if it is true what this guy said then Ted Nugent also never would have been able to play Heavy-Rock with a Byrdland . That's the nice thing with Gibson Guitars... They are so versatile... Greetings, PIT...
  22. Thanks... yes you're right... another hole needs to be drilled... but I never looked back and regretted it... I almost have forgotten that there have been other tuners installed... I just get reminded once I see the older picrures... \:D/ ...not only does it look better, it also takes off a little weight from headside and the guitar sounds somewhat more open... I did this also with my ES-335...
  23. happy and relaxed :-)
