  1. This is a question on separate topic and depends on many factors. I assume that you want to sell this guitar. The first and most important is the originality of all parts and finish, ev. repairs and modifications and condition of guitar, because it's a collectors item. But I don't know anything about it. The second is the way of sale. There is a saying that every thing is worth as much as people want to pay for it ;) IMHO the best way is to make good photos inside and outside, describe all precisely and put on ebay in a normal auction from 1$ . Preview the list of pending auctions of Strat
  2. Thank you very much for this information and opinion on my guitar. That's very nice of you. In my SJ200 it looks very similar. The pickguard raises similar height but on a bit longer distance than in yours. But I could get used to it and in no way doesn't bother me while playing, nor does it affect the sound. In any case, I wasn't going to peel off or change for anything else, because now it looks just beautiful. Out of curiosity unglued just a bit more looking at a small angle to see what's underneath. Then I pressed it back and I'll never do anything there. Indeed, the guitar looks and s
  3. Thank you for explanation. It seems to me that you're right. I checked it thoroughly again, means I tried to gently peel off the pickguard. And the more deeper into it, rather looks like substances used in thick adhesive tapes. And probably with the passage of time it has dried at the edges - why is raised. I guess that the purpose of this idea was to create a plate more resistant to scratches. And indeed much more difficult to scratch it than plastic. But when they (Gibson) found that the influence of various factors (temperature, humidity, tension, vibration) plate peeling at the edges - ab
  4. Many thanks Dave and All for polite advices. I had a similar suspicion like you, but I wanted to make sure. Probability of broke the head is too high. Unfortunately I have no possibilities to check this live so I resigned from exchange. Kind Regards Mariusz
  5. Of course, but believe that from a distance of 2m you willn't notice any difference (the pattern is exactly the same). What to celluloid also you're right - generally it comes to matching the resonance pickquard and body. However, I believe that it's rather a question of aesthetics. I don't think Gibson made ​​without any testing such a terrible error by producing a series of pickguards with rubber for his top guitars, which will partially suppresses sound of the body. I can't find any info what is used for produce guards at present.
  6. Thanks. You're right. I mean some kind of rigid plastic. I have no idea what it's called. PCV..? Although Fender in their electric guitars used celluloid (not only flamed/patterned) for a long time. Hopeing don't you mean that this is my pickquard some fake?
  7. First I'll answer for the Pickquard: Please read the seller's add info on bottom the description. I have no reason not to believe what he wrote, but also don't have possibilities to check this or comparison with other J-200 guitars w/ celluloid pickquard. For me it sounds good. Only problem is, that sometimes it rises up at edges. But just a little touch to found again on right place. In any case, it certainly is not nor was it ever glued. As for the strings - have no experiences w/ 6str. jumbo. I own 12str. Guild F-512 but its another story as for the sound. For the strings gauge - same.
  8. Hi Folks ;) Again thank you for your help. As promised, I'd like to inform, that I just got a Gibson J-200 ;) It looks and sounds really great. I have only two small problems: Truss rod cover plate on the head - lack of signature 'Standard' as in current production. Does it matter, means is this still Standard Modell? The second case signaled the seller in the listing: "..The pickguard is of a variety that was used for a while. It's a ".. No Scratch" Guard. Sometimes in the case, it will lift a tiny bit around the pointed edge from the face. All you do is just touch it and it goes back
  9. Hi Folks, I just got offer for exchange mine Fender Tele '75: http://www.gitarion.pl/galeria/elektryczne/fender_telecaster_1975/fender_telecaster_1975.html for Gibson LP Custom '75: http://www.gitarion.pl/galeria/elektryczne/gibson_les_paul_custom_1975/gibson_les_paul_custom_1975.html for my collection. Please tell me if is this Gibson 100% original, nothing changed or repaired and in good condition and if so, whether such exchange has sense or is profitable. Thank you very much for advices!

  12. Never mind. Light reflections can cause very strange things. But in this case IMHO shape of the nut is made on purpose just to lengthen the scale by string B, and improve tuning or sound.
  13. You're amazing. I didn't noticed but it don't looks like broken. Strange shape of the nut looks like factory made, or am I wrong? Just wonder why. Never seen such before.
  14. Hello again to all Gibson Friends, ;) I'm sorry that I'm writing again on the same subject but since yesterday I have some second thoughts. I'm not familiar w/ acoustic Gibsons but you all are experts or know much much more as for the details. Namely, in the auction title and description salesman says in same time that it is a J-200 and SJ-200: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2008-Gibson-SJ-200-J-200-Flamed-Blonde-Factory-Pickup-Bozeman-Vintage-Tone-Woods-/251512697061?autorefresh=true&nma=true&si=WMV0I%252BijRdbbNGTE0errscpRpD0%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  15. I WON !!! :) For a bit more 2611$ but won ;) Thanks all very very much! ;)
