  1. Hi Noseforwine, welcome to the forum! I think your comments might be better directed at Gibson's customer support: https://www.gibson.com/Support/Customer-Service While you may see the occasional Gibson employee on the forums here, it's not like they read all of the comments, as we are all normal blokes with day jobs like yourself. A forum that Gibson management read existed many years ago with the forhenry forum, but is long since closed.
  2. You're welcome! Yes, it seems your tuners are not the same. Did you buy your new or used? If used, someone may have had a preference for gold hardware and swapped it.... Wouldn't be the first time!
  3. Welcome to the forum! Nice looking LP you have there! I found another one here with gold hardware: https://www.sheltonsguitars.com/2014/12-04-2014/gibson-les-paul-traditional-pro-ii.html And then there is this: https://reverb.com/item/1138865-gibson-les-paul-traditional-plus-2013-burgundy-w-gold-hardware
  4. Seriously, if you want something different than a Gibson or Fender, try a Framus (if you can find one).
  5. You may have better odds PMing the OP about the guitar, if he still has it....
  6. I too like playing them while upside-down 😁
  7. Since when does the US have a Ford Transit? That was a Euro name previously.. In any case, I like the white can.. you can now call yourself a White Van Man 😉 ! (google it in the UK..)
  8. I think you will find that we don't want them either, but would gladly offer you ours if you will have them....
  9. Excellent post. I only wish all the young people who run around saying we need socialism / communism could understand that. After all, Hitler's party was named "National Socialism" and what they promised the populace is not far off from what today's candidates are promising...
  10. Read that this morning, very sad... Was listening to Drive over the past weeks.. RIP Ric.
  11. If the neck is straight and the guitar plays well and you like it, then it is a "good one".
  12. Welcome to the forum! Nice collection you have there !
  13. From those close-up photos, it doesn't look like a fake, and I've never seen someone try to fake the PCB. However can you also upload photos of the full guitar?
  14. My 2018 BFG has the same Torrified Granadillo fretboard, it's just find imo.
  15. For the OP, why buy that, when you can get this for the same $1500 ? https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/LPSTKHCH--gibson-les-paul-studio-smokehouse-burst Or this: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/LPSTWRDCH--gibson-les-paul-studio-wine-red
  16. In the words of Monty Python: Run away!!! Run away!! Keep Running! Any guitar shop that would willingly sell that is not one that I would give my money to.
  17. Welcome to the forum. Wish you luck finding your Explorer!
  18. Guitars are not safe investments. Were I in your shoes, I would invest that money elsewhere, in something more secure. There is no way of knowing if that Les Paul will be valuable in the future. You will, essentially, be gambling. For instance (and this is hypothetical): if it turns out the person who signed the guitar liked driving over kittens with his SUV, and did so on a daily basis, then I doubt people would hold his signature in high esteem. Or, if rock music finally dies completely and guitars fall out of favour in 20 years time, you will have a hard time selling it. If you are looking for a player guitar for yourself that in 20 years you could sell for a nice profit, you might want to look at buying an actual vintage guitar, but again, no one knows.
  19. The latest Premier Guitar video tour of Gibson's factory has quoted production numbers of 350 or more guitars per day. However, how many of each model I do not think they mention unless it is a special "limited edition", and even then not always.
  20. Nice!!! Love an Explorer!

    2019 lacquer

    I think that's the lifestyle they want people to think they have had, but haven't actually had...
  22. Must say, I prefer the rounded neck on my SGs, but that white binding looks a lot nicer than the cream coloured on the later 2019s....
