  1. Unless my eyes or the picture is deceiving me then I count 6 frets after the dot inlay. That to me counts out to 20 frets total.
  2. One thing to note is that this quitar looks like it has 20 frets which would make it 1955 or newer. Could this be an early LG-1 with 20 frets and smaller pickguard?
  3. I've tried to find other Gibson instruments that have the same style logo as this guitar and I just can't find one where the "G" in gibson has the same styling as this one. I found a couple of images from 1920's all the way up to 2012. Based on that alone I would have to say this is a fake. Keith
  4. I saw Segovia in concert before he died. I think the year was 1985 in Charleston, SC. What a great concert. Keith
  5. I would agree. 14 1/2 frets to the body seems odd for a 60s. DG- in front of serial number seems period to 38. I was just curious. I did read in Gruhn's Guide to Vintage Guitars that there were 2 examples made in the late 30s that was cherryburst.
  6. I ran across this today. The listing says 19 frets but I count 20. Just not sure if it's real. Just doesn't look that old. http://www.ebay.com/itm/141198455555?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
  7. The custom has more of a bass growl and the TV seems to be more fluid across all the strings. I enjoy playing both and try to play them 2 to 3 times a week. I don't play any particular style on either one. I go through stages of fingerpicking to strumming and singing to picking scales. I'm always hesitant about modifying the original and wouldn't want to add any new holes. Keith
  8. Hello, My first post here. I have this guitar and it is wonderful. I wasn't all that pumped about the gold tuners but they have grown on me. My current Gibson lineup is : J-45 TV J-45 Custom Amber Burst Hummingbird 1969 J-50 1956 LG-1 I have other guitars but they don't see the light of day. Keith
