    Cracked neck

    Problem is Blackie that I don't know how exactly it happened. I certainly didn't drop the case or the guitar. We have had temperatures here in the low 40's (celcius) pretty damm hot. Reading about the temperature thing it may well be that I took it straight out the case and hung it on the wall in an A/C room. So 40+ to 18 degrees in a short time could have done it I suppose. Anyway - I took it to my luthier and he has fixed several of these and assures me that I wont be able to see the crack after he has done his magic. I will keep you all posted. Thanks for your

    Cracked neck

    I can't explain how it h appended but the neck on my SG has cracked right where the neck meets the headstock.:D Some friends tell me that the S G is prone to this happening. Can anyone here confirm this? I have taken it to a local luthier for repair and he seems to think he can repair it to almost new condition. Anyone had a similar experience??
  4. I am planning a trip to the Stetes later thisyear and wanted to bring my son to see the Fender and Gibson Factories. Fender is sorted and they were really nice about organising a trip round. Does anyone know if Gibson also organise trips around the factory??

  14. I've been watching this thread for a while and thought I'd chip in. I am 14 (15 next month). Dad bought me a second hand explorer in black with off white pickguard. I had a black pickguard made locally and fitted. It looks A1 and sounds excellent. My advice - you are never too young for a great Gibson guitar, but must agree that a used one is the best value.
  15. At least we got a bit of humour into the end of this thread. LOL
