  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNqes4_ASjk Tried this?
  2. I'd like to know who told you to apply acetone to nitrocellulose? It needs to be refinished.
  3. Berkley on Boylston & Bacon streets.
  4. Thanks. Same here. I wanted sunburst but the $800 difference made it prohibitive.
  5. Honeymoon is in full bloom. Someone will chime in and mention the magnets have changed over the years and ONLY xyz magnets sound like a real FB. This guitar has Fender chime and humbucker growl. I happen to like the neck profile. The geometry of the body & neck works for my fat belly. I get a nice handle on the guitar and can attack to my hearts content. I am cheap. So I got the pelham blue finish which is $800 less than vintage sunburst. These pickups are very versatile. They are responsive and follow my lead well. And even though the volume and tone wiring are "good enough" I may want to upgrade the harness since the chicklet caps make me squirm. Any suggestions on that front?
  6. Then if there is buzz, you will address relief. This is not rocket science. you are over thinking it.
  7. Okay - Fender has better QA standards but I'd rather have a Gibson?
  8. I have a 1972 I bought for $272 and a 2012(?) MIM I bought for $400. My point is Fenders come out like Quarter Pounders. A Gibson being compared to an In-N-Out is probably apt. Handmade and much better tasting. Every Gibson I have ever owned has had signs of being made by humans. I like that.
  9. People go to great lengths to make their guitar look "well worn." OP is having an issue with what they see as a defect. I would look upon it as proof the guitar is handmade.
  10. "Gibson’s 498T and 490R pickups (“T” for treble, and “R” for rhythm) "
  11. Make the string change and then check intonation to see how much it has changed if at all. My FB came with 0.10s and I put hybrids on it. No changes needed.
  12. Okay. When did they start putting plastic wrap over the stop tail?
