  1. 21 Days hanging and no problem or indication of any finish trouble with the ES-330 and the my freshly nitro finished custom Tele. I think the 100% cotton twill wrap is going to work for me.
  2. I am trying this wrapping 100% Cotton black twill around the wall hangers. Now watching my ES330 and my Custom RCB Twangmaster Telecaster like a hawk checking daily to see if any marking marring or finish damage. So far two days looks the same no damage. I will report back in a few weeks as to how this worked or not.

  4. I am wanting to see what others do to prevent damage to Gibson guitar finishes from guitar stands specifically hanging stands and the damage caused to the nitro finish on the neck where they hang. When I search for say "damage to finish" or "safe guitar stands" it seems to find those individual words in a bunch of posts that have nothing to do with what I'm looking for. I am very interested in this topic. I have three stands that are marketed to be safe for "most finishes" with their special rubber foam or whatever. It almost totally ate the finish off the neck where it hangs on my beautiful 2016 ES335 full figured slim neck model. I was lucky, I caught it in time and was able to buff it out. Not having any luck finding anything about this problem here. I sold that guitar and bought a 2016 ES330 61 VOS reissue. I am paranoid about hanging it or keeping it on a floor stand for any length of time. My stands are Hercules brand. Also, any other nitro finished guitar I have doesn't have this problem as it appears some Gibson owners have this same problem from what I can find on the net. The nitro finished guitars I have that the stands don't seem to bother are 1964 ES125T, 1959 Martin 0017, 76 Guild X500, 2016 Collings CJ35, Eastman Parlor. I like my guitars being out because it makes it easy to grab and play them.

  6. #1 for the Towner Downer and the Duesenberg Les Trem. I have done both on Les Paul and ES335. Best part of both these is you can put your guitar back the way it was originally without any extra screw holes. The vibramate is extra heavy and bulky not as slick as the two mentioned. Link for my video of the Duesenberg Les Trem I like it as the best option
  7. I have a 1964 ES125T and a 2016 61 ES330 VOS reissue with Bigsby. I joined to find out some information about Gibson. For some reason it won't let me search. Can you tell me why I can't search here after registering?
