  1. Yes, the zero nut is replaceable. In fact, you should replace that brass one, as it will develop grooves on the side that are supposed to make it the "zero" nut. Gibson will replace it free of charge, with I think Titanium? I don't know for sure what the new material is, but... its a lot harder than brass. Call up Customer Support, give them the pertinent info, and they'll mail it out.
  2. Looks like overspray on the clear coat. I've got the same thing on most of my Gibsons. I usually end up chipping it off with a fingernail. Bugs me. Gets knocked off when I replace the nuts to, and I replace most Gibson nuts, if they haven't been already.
  3. 2007 LP Special 1960 Historic/VOS Double Cut One piece body
  4. Two weeks and two emails. I'm trying one more, to hopefully get some idea of numbers made and just because I'd like to know if it was a Sam Ash exclusive? So, I got confirmation on the pickups last night. Here's the only facts, I have so far. During at least part of June 1990 Gibson made a limited run of ebony (only) Standards, with all gold hardware, and cream plastics. Pickups were uncovered, unmarked 490R/498T double cream humbuckers.
  5. Eh... I'm going with Mojo.
  6. Dude... no one insulted you, but your reaction says a lot. As bbp said, "Lighten up, Francis." You were given sound, polite advice.
  7. I am smart enough! Wait... what was the question? But whatever it was... ^^^ this is the right answer. I see a battery compartment on the back of a LP, I keep walking.
  8. I was a young teen during RR's heyday. I liked Ozzy, but I was a VH fan... so I listened mostly to Eddie. After RR's death, I don't know why, but I started listening to more of the stuff he did. The solo in Revelation (Mother Earth), is to this day still one of my favorites. The way he fused Classical with Heavy Metal, never heard anything before, or since quite like it. Just thinking about all the stuff we missed out on, is mind-boggling. EDIT: Just watched that Gary Moore interview and listened to the song. That's interesting that Ozzy was trying to recruit Gary. It makes sense, a guitarist of his caliber and name. But, what an odd pairing, that would have been. I bet it would have have for some interesting/good music. I'm happy we got our time with Randy, however short it was.
  9. With all the "limited" GC editions out there, and the numbers Gibson's filled them... I think we'll eventually get to a point, where GC's LPs are most, or close to the prevalent Les Paul on the used market. I think as far as a Standard is concerned, with the rarity of runs with gold hardware and double creams (none that I know of), it makes it a tad more unique. Let's be honest, the early 90s LPs are considered some of the best, by a lot of people. I know it compares very favorably with my Custom. The pickups are the only difference, and I prefer the '57 Classics in the LPC. Does it matter in the grand scheme of things? Not really. But I think it makes for an interesting story/history, finding out why and who it was made for. Good story to tell, when you're showing off your guitars. And while I hope I'm never in the position I would have to move it... when I pass on, I would like whoever gets it, to know what they're inheriting. Gibson got back to me. I'm going to send them all the pics I have, plus the new ones of the pickups when I swapped rings. .
  10. I am desperately trying to find information on this run of Standards. The only ones I can verify were all made in June of 1990. Any of these guys still around, or anyone know the history behind Gibson trimming out a Standard with gold and double cream humbuckers ?
  11. Its an awesome sounding guitar. Just, playing it next to a Custom and even the Studio Pro, the SG Standard.... the satin finish on a "multi" piece body, bugged me. Plus, I discovered there was zero relief on the neck. It was straight, and fine. But, no relief. It couldn't be adjusted any further that way. For a new guitar... naw. Plus, it was a score and it led to another score. I grabbed the Standard for under $1800 and other than the scuff mark on the neck, its VG condition. Not even fret wear, or pick rash. Some slight buckle rash. Plus, the desire for my next LP, was for a Traditional, or an older Standard. I do love those P-90s though. And Seymour Duncan makes a P-Rail humbucker sized pickup. Its a single coil and a P-90, that can be run split-coil, or in conjunction. $89 and I'm going to put them in my SGJ. If I like em' maybe my Studio. As for the strings, Gibson is using 9s (hybrids) on a lot of guitars. If you check the Gibson site and pull up the 2016s, most everything has 9-46. At least the ones I've been looking at. From Studios to Standards. My SG came with 9s. I bought the SGJ used with 10s. Studio had 10s, until my tech set it up and put 9s on it, but that's how I described I wanted the setup and how I like it. The Standard came with 9-42, and I don't remember what the Custom had... but I put Gibson Vintage 10s on it.
  12. Watched a few interviews with her. Comes across as a real down to earth person, and a pretty lady. Nice to see her making a comeback.
  13. That Gibson is sweet! But 90lbs!? Wow! The unchambered, no weight-relief Les Paul of amps.
