  1. No facetiousness taken and thanks!
  2. I talked to gibson and they told me that there was 50 made primarily for the Japanese market this one ended up back in the USA , and I feel lucky to have a real custom not a standard! Serial numbers all match up with Gibson.
  3. I guess we will never know if it is a nuge reply or not, Like his politics and love his music, have lots of mp3's and quite a few record albums, I only wish I could play as good as he does, so smooth and effortless!
  4. Thanks, it is a Beautiful Gibson S&S, Love It To Death!

    I use the EB regular slinky and switch the G string to a d'addarios NW017 which is a nickle wound string, it makes that string sound great, I buy them separately from strings by mail. I have always had problems with G string sounding flat but changing to these made my difference!


    Wow! You got my message and responded - that was fast. Here's the link you gave to some photos: https://imgur.com/a/bkOzu 

    It was a post from April 2 2018. The guitar was a "New Les Paul Classic 2018 Pelham Blue". Sure hope you can remember!

    Thanks so much for getting back to me. (Seems I have to wait 24 hrs. to reply - I've apparently reached my limit (??)


    Update: I ordered Grover 502C tuners to see if they'll work. If you remember what you put on the Blue Beauty pls send a message to troddensouth@gmail.com.  I'm not having much success with this forum unfortunately. Only able to send one message every 24 hours and not really getting the hang of it (navigating). Glad it's working for all you more savvy Gibsonistas. Thanks much. Ted

  7. Thanks I am sure that it is a keeper for a long time, I am thinking it is ebony, they usually spared no expense on this year model, I will call Gibson because I really dont want to start pulling things apart and end up dropping something on top of it. I am in the process in selling my Nighthawk, probably shouldnt cause it is so darn light and plays well. Thanks for your help!
  8. I will probably call them to find out, already called to verify the sn, thanks
  9. I just bought this Custom Stars & Stripes SN 029738 and I am looking for info like what kind of fret board it has, what kind of pups and I hope it was worth the $5100 I spent on it, I have seen quite a few in the standard model but this is the 1st I have seen as a Custom with the Binding and Diamond on the Head stock. Any Help would be appreciated, This is my last guitar, at 68 I am keeping it for my older sons in hopes that it goes up in price! Not a Player, Display Case Material. I will play my other LP's it is to beautiful to mark up. Thanks for any help in advance!
  10. Its kinda grainy so I think it is rosewood, needs a good cleaning and some fret doctor. The whole guitar needs care, someone installed pearly gates bridge and neck pickups so I do Like that, well back to work on rewire and reset. Thanks for all comments, much appreciated!
  11. I just bought a 2016 Epi ES 339, They List 2 different fret boards, does anyone know if this year epi would have a rosewood or a Pau Ferro board? Thanks for the help!
  12. Yes, I researched it enough and find that the 2011 studio has a solid mahogany body and it should have hat knobs on it, so I ordered them, Thanks for your help!
  13. Thanks for your help, could not even find a listing from Gibson anymore on it, I have owned quite a few Les Pauls from the 1970's until today and it seems like all of them have had different things than they had said, the last Custom I bought was in 2017 and it was brand new and it did not have the pickups they said it came with that is why I am not sure about this used guitar I bought, but thanks for your help!
  14. I just bought this 2011 Gibson Studio Nighthawk and should be receiving it soon, What is the body made out of, some places say mahogany others say poplar which is it? They also show hat knobs on them and this one has speed knobs and it is suppose to be all original. I am Confused! Can anyone help?
