  1. Yeah, except for the poster says he wanted a fake guitar that did not say Gibson on it. He knew he was buying a fake guitar he’s just complaining that it says Gibson on it and he has to prove that it’s a fake. This guy is trolling you....
  2. Right. And if he switched the wires on the board and the problem remains with the same pup that would rule out a problem with the board and the switch. I’d replace the pup.
  3. That was nuts. I like my SG’s light. I would rather put up with some neck-dive than add weight or move the strap button YMMV.
  4. First, I recommend the Mojotone kits, I built their VibroChamp clone and bought a pre-wired 5e3 board from them. My 330 sounds good in low power Fender amps; 5f1 Champ, 5e3 Deluxe, VibroChamp. But I’ve also played it through a 50 watt JCM800 at rehearsal volume. They all sound good.
  5. Not so sure about that. I have purchased two new ES models in the last 12 months or so and they had no issues. YMMV
  6. That serial number has been on many fake Gibsons. My guess is that this guitar is a copy. Look closely, you can see issues even in this small pic. Google that serial number. Here’s a link to a member asking about a goldtop with the same number. http://forum.gibson.com/index.php?/topic/64039-help-is-this-a-real-les-paul-standard/
  7. I thought that, too. But a maple body will never be the same color as a mahogany neck. I got used to it after a got a couple of them. You could always get a Pelham blue one or other solid color and never see the neck wood at all.
  8. Measure it yourself, from the center of the low E to the high e.
  9. My advice to the OP is to buy used, you will get more bang for your buck and lose less if you decide to sell it next year. CS models are generally better than USA models to me and I enjoy playing them more. It's worth it to me to pay a little more for them. But, my limit is in the $3000 range.
  10. I can't tell if the tone was improved on mine either. But I do adjust the poles sometimes and figured that it would better to have them closer to the strings. The poles are made so you can tailor your sound so it doesn't make any sense to mount them so far from the strings. It doesn't help with my OCD to have them slanted either.
  11. I guess that Eric and I must think alike
  12. Oh, you're talking to me! No, Wildwood calls that 'dark vintage natural '. It's a very thin nitro finish. BTW, it has a nylon nut too. Stays in tune very well.
  13. Those were hideous. I bet someone has some they don't want.
  14. If we're going to talk about the way they were traditionally made, I believe many Gibsons in the 50's were traditionally made with a nylon not. The new custom shop versions are coming with nylon nuts and they don't bind it all and the guitar stays in tune for days on end.
  15. I thought that the Traditional's came with 57/57+ classic pups.
