  1. Hi, I was hoping someone might be able to help me with a problem I’m having identifying a guitar. I recently came across this obviously extremely old acoustic guitar. The Gibson headstock seems to match that of a mid 40s L-Series. The problem I’m having in identifying it Is because it seems to have at some point been given, and I can’t overstate this, the single worst paint job I may have ever seen on anything that’s had paint on it. It appears that the re-painting has been done on he body, as well also on the headstock. I realized after I took these pictures that I didn’t take pictures of the tailpiece and associated hardware, but it appears to all be original. It has one of the full trapeze style tail piece. I was hoping someone might be able to get back to me and at least start me in the process of identifying this guitar. Thanks so much.
  2. I always like tinkering around and I needed a decent set of era correct tuners for my 1942 LG-1. I found one set that was missing one gear and shaft and needs the buttons replaced. I started scanning the net for information about these era tuners. Willi has a great post over on UMGF https://umgf.com/chronology-of-kluson-tuners-used-from-late-1936-to-t197854.htm After shopping around I noticed the slotted head tuners from that era were more available and they looked the same except for the string hole in the shaft. I picked up a set that looked in decent shape to try out. Here's some photos. I bought brass bar stock to size and a special tap for the screw holes. Made the shafts to match an original one then did an aging on the brass, replaced the buttons then assembled them. I'll do a few more sets to get better at it. I followed Dan Erlewine's instructions on the buttons but I'm not totally happy with the results. I'll make some kind of jig then redo them. .
  3. Hi forum friends! I have an Epiphone EJ200 (Jumbo) Acoustic, Blonde with Gibson branding over the truss rod cover on the headstock. It's a 1997 model made at the Samick plant in South Korea. I am looking to buy some of the original bridge pins used in the guitar...or something near identical in appearance and dimension as well as hopefully sound!! Two of the original bridge pins are currently superglued after snapping and all of them are quite worn and gnarled now so I fear they are rapidly giving up the ghost! I have spent a year trying to find pins that match but with no success. The pins are plastic, vintage yellowish colour with a black dot. For whatever reason the look and sound of the cheapish original pins are just perfect to my eyes and ears! However I know that lots of EJ200 players swap out the original pins for superior ones. Well, I would dearly love to buy those original bridge pins! If there are any EJ200 (Samick plant build) owners that have upgraded their pins, or who know of anyone who has upgraded their pins, and are happy to sell the original pins then please let me know! Or if anyone knows of replacement pins that match these then please do let me know! I'm in the UK but happy to purchase online from anywhere. I don't mind experimenting with other bridge pin materials so open to any suggestions! I just find a lot of replacement pins are shorter in length with a much larger head and don't seem to sound, sit or look right on the guitar to me. I have no idea what pins Epiphone used in the guitar but I cannot find matching ones for sale anywhere. I also have no idea what pins are used in the Gibson J200s but I haven't been able to track any of those down either. Thanks in advance for any help with this!!
  4. Looking for any/all info...Epiphone double-neck Thanks guys Chris
  5. Wondering how may years Gibson's Custom Shop made the John Hiatt Signature model J-45's for? I heard it started in 2010 and only 100 were made according to Gibson archive site, but they never stated how many years they were produced, and if there were only 100 every year?? Anyone out there know? I've seen one for sale on a website when decoding the serial number it appears to be a 2012. Wondering how rare these are, as this was the first one I've ever seen come up for sale. Thank You all in advance for your responses.
  6. I recently Acquired a Vintage Style O from 1921. I noticed most of the style Os are sunburst or Black Finish. Natural finish seem to be few and far between. Just curious if it was an unpopular model at the time or if they made less natural finishes. Anyone have any answers? Any help is appreciated.
  7. Recently, I bought a fine 1976 Gibson ES335 from a friend of mine. The guitar plays well, good tuning and sound, but there was a problem... took the guitar to my luthier for fret replacement and basic maintenance, so he tell me that the guitar has a twisted neck and It couldn't be fixed. The guitar really has a good tone, sounding, but... I can't get the “my guitar has a twisted neck and can't be fixed” out of my mind. What Should I do?
  8. First off, I am a drummer but love to play guitar and some bass too. But I could really benefit from the opinions of other guitar players or Gibson enthusiasts. I have always wanted to own a Gibson but never had the extra coin to spend. Or so I thought until I saw a used Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded T from 2016 with a price tag of 649 Canadian dollars (roughly 500 American dollars). I couldn't believe how much of a bargain it was especially since it was in almost new condition. I bought it without even playing it, which looking back on it was kinda crazy. I am not disappointed however. It looks and sounds and feels amazing. It has a much bigger neck than my Casino but you get used to it. I did some research and wanted to compare this Les Paul model to other models. I knew the one I had bought was ultimately the least expensive Les Paul you could buy without resorting to an Epiphone. After doing some research I was pleasantly surprised. I found that this guitar had all the guts and essentials that the Les Paul Standard had. The main differences were in finish (Faded T has a satin nitro finish), lack of binding and different nobs. Other things that Gibson will often change to save costs on their less expensive models would be pick-ups and a different neck material (maple necks are cheaper than mahogany necks I am told), but my Studio Faded T has Burstbucker Pros and a mahogany neck, a combination that doesn't really seem to exist in less expensive Les Paul models. A lot of Studio models have a maple neck or different pick-ups than the Standard such as the 490R and 490T or 498T. So my question is did I stumble upon a hidden treasure? A diamond in the rough? Could it just be that the 2016 Studio Faded T though low on the price tag is actually super high in value? I am especially interested in hearing from other owners of this guitar.
  9. Hey. I am currently bidding on some gibson guitars. And i wonder if they are truly the real deal. Can anyone verify me these instruments? I can only upload these pictures on another site. https://imgur.com/a/hbQd5wJ here is the link. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance:)
  10. Together (Les, Leo & Paul) – Vanhaye The legends of 70 year electric guitar development. Gibson Les Paul Classic vs Fender Stratocaster Elite vs Paul Reed Smith Custom 24. It has formed the pop music where it is now. The song Together brings them together. No battle, but each with its own character.
  11. Anyone played one of these yet? Im looking for a bigger/fuller neck compared to the 2018 standard j45 I have. It says 50s style "round"on these but im wondering how it compares to something like the True Vintage J45, or an R8/R9. Cheers!
  12. Need help with this one. Had my Les Paul stolen that was signed to me from slash and need input on where to start. Have a police report but never had a serial. I've done the usual Craigslist and Facebook stuff but looking for ideas or avenues to take. Sheldon

  14. Hi everyone! First of all apologies if the section is wrong, wasn't sure where to post. I have this weird problem with my Gibson LP standard 2017. Apparently the neck volume has some weird issue. When I turn the knob down to 9/9,5, it starts buzzing and the volume itself drops dramatically. As I keep turning down, this stops from happening (please see the video below, it is clearer). Did anyone experience something similar before? Any ideas of what the problem could be and how to solve it? I’m literally crapping myself, as if there’s a problem with the push-pull board, it’s £300 flying away.... Here’s a video: https://streamable.com/v0iyp

  16. Hi there, i just bought my first ever Gibson guitar and this is what i'm greeted by, is this normal or should i return it? I don't really care if there's dings or anything but i just want to know that it's structurally sound and that the headstock isn't gonna snap off.
  17. So, lil bit ago i bought a 2019 Gibson Les Paul Premium Quilt Ocean Perimeter Guitar. It was new and i love it. As new ir came with the usual case candy, gibson multi tool, cleaner cloth, care guide. What it was missing however was the Set up/Final Check photo that has come with most other Gibson's i bought new. I was kinda bummed that it didnt cause i actually thought "huh..... that pretty awesome gibson does this" when i got my first Gibsons and honestly had excitement for it when i got my others. Idk guess its kinda like a baby's first photo kinda thing xD Anyways i was bummed but cut my losses until i saw this video https://youtu.be/Qi3-D7N31eo and the what im guessing is the plant ceo, the same plant my guitar came from btw, says that they keep all those photos on file and could send one out if say a customer ever lost theirs...... and thus i got excited and instantly contacted customer support through email...... 2 weeks ago..... multiple times..... and tried calling but no answer....... so i ask this Am i just screwed xD does Gibson Customer Support Just not exist xD i wouldnt even be mad just to get a "nah we cant do that my dude" cause atleast then id know they actually READ the damned thing i sent in. Its rather concerning.... what if i actually had a real issue with my guitar....
  18. Does anyone know what the stock's strings in Les Paul Tribute DC Bass are? And any recomendated hardcase for this shorty ?
  19. As the attached picture shows, when I try to lower my neck pickup, only the side opposite the poles lowers. So really the poles never adjust unless I were to lower the individual poles. Anyone else have this issue? If so, how did you fix it?
  20. Hi, I have managed to get my hands on a 2006 Gibson Led Paul Custom John Sykes inspired by model one of the fully aged ones. My question is does anybody know what the black wire is for that comes from underneath the bridge pickup ring and wrapps around the stop tail mounting screw? I'm guessing it is there to make the guitar period correct for John's actual guitar. Kind regards Dave.
  21. What do you guys think? Solid brazilian rosewood back and sides or laminated?
  22. We found this in a relatives basement. Anyone ever seen anything like it? Just trying to get some knowledge about a guitar I've been priveledged to own.
  23. I’m looking for some help identifying and dating the Guitar pictured below. From what I can find, it looks to be manufactured between 1935-1941. I was able to find what appears to be the FON number, but I can’t quite make it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  24. Anybody other than me use their ES345 for mainly jazz ? ( not talking about blues, but JAZZ ) Yes I know lots use use the ES335 for jazz, but that’s not my question. If yes, do you ever use the variable tone control dial ? i think it works great for jazz, smooth or funk jazz as well. It’s just a bit heavy is the only thing (7.5 pounds and I use the widest most padded strap available)
