  1. Where did the old amps come from in your previous post and do you know who owns them? Cheers Rob
  2. Thanks. Are yours copies then? They look pretty authentic. Ive tried the dealers on Reverb but not prepared to ship to UK
  3. Hi Do you trade Grog? I have been searching for a year for a vintage 36 37 or 38 EH150 here in the UK but there are just none around. I have a 36 ES150 and want to marry it up with the original amp. Best wishes Robuk
  4. Oh those EH 150s !!!!! I only need one to go with my 1936 ES 150......if only ..... Robuk
  5. Hi I am fortunate to have a 1936 ES150 but would love to marry it up with the original amp so I am looking for a 1936 7 or 8 EH150 . Problem is I am in the UK where these amps are like hens teeth. Can anyone help please? Rob
  6. I went to Gibson Memphis last year and asked about this because I have an 08 335 custom. The factory supervisor explained that the basic 335 guitar is built in Memphis and then sent to the Nashville custom shop for conpletion. As I recall there is no custom shop in Memphis. Hope this helps
  7. Here is my 1936 ES150 with CC pickup. Sounds beautiful with a warm soft woody tone. I was genuinely amazed when it was played thru the amp
  8. Hi JimR56 Thanks for your comments.I play bluesy jazz or jazzy blues. Sometimes accompanying a lovely young Italian jazz singer here in the Uk.We try to do Billie Holliday Nina Simone stuff as well as Amy Winehouse Beth Hart .....and so on! The ES150 is a beauty to play, soft rich and warm in tone. I have a custom ES175 from 2004 and an ES335 custom from 2008 but the 150 blows them away for pure jazzy soul sound. I was stunned at how lovely it sounded thu the amp.
  9. My newly acquired ES150. Shabby but beautiful with a lovely warm soft woody tone. Amazing for an 81 year old lady.
  10. Hi Can anyone help me please with advice on how to clean and tidy up my newly acquired but slightly shabby 1936 ES 150. Specifically the spruce top is dull but with nice patina. The same with the maple topside. Also the tuners are heavily tarnished and the headstock black is worn and faded. Any advice welcome as this is my first serious vintage.. . Or should I just leave well alone? Many thanks Robuk
  11. Many thanks. Sorry about the typo in my post. The date should read 1936 not 1956!! The guitar is even older than me! I will give Gibson a try. Thanks again for the advice Robuk
  12. Hi from UK and it's good to join you. I'm a great fan of Gibson guitars and have just been lucky enough to acquire a rather shabby es150 from 1956 which is pretty much intact. Does anyone know how many 150s were made in 1936? I'm guessing that it wasn't really documented but mebbe soneone out there knows....... Robuk
