  1. Can you help me with where it’s made
  2. I'm hoping for some input on a guitar I'm looking at. The guitar is a Epiphone DR500MCE Masterbilt and is in seemingly great condition other than this crack in the neck area by the nut. The seller says that the crack is on both sides of the neck but only gives me one picture which I'll post here. They live about 2 hours away from me so I don't really want to drive out there if it's not worth it. My question is how much would you pay for the guitar? Would it be worth picking up or should I pass on it? Any help is greatly appreciated. The headstock doesn't seem to have any scuffs
  3. First of all my apologies, but I'm kinda new to this forum and the world of Gibson (Epiphone were my axes of choice for years). So if I asking a dumb question below, forgive me. Yesterday, I found an interesting listing for a Gibson SG Tribute 2019 on Facebook. The seller claims it's hardly been used and that he didn't modify anything... This is how it came out of the box. It even has the plastic foil on the pickguard. He posted a few pictures and also sent me a picture of the certificate of authenticity. So far so good, you say... However, I do have a few questions about this... When I l
  4. Hello. This is my first post. I recently installed new tuners on my explorer and hater them, so I put the old grovers on. The only problem is that I had to drill holes, and so I plugged up the holes with toothpicks. They are barely visible because I put touch up furniture paste on them. But they are re still noticeable to me. This is my favorite guitar and I can’t forgive myself. Any recommendations on what to do? Is it possible to get the back of the headstock refinished?
  5. I have this guitar I found at some family’s house and I have no idea if it is real or fake? Can someone please let me know what they think and/or how to check myself?? Thank you!!

  7. Hi everyone I recently got a custom shop les Paul with an aged white finish and I noticed these cracks at the heel joint and I want to know are these cosmetic only or a potential problem?
  8. Hi all So I've recently noticed tiny chips of cherry red lacquer appearing around my room, in places where I play my '08 SG bass. Some lacquer has been chipping off around the neck pickup, but I don't know where else it is chipping off and I don't know why it is. Is this common?
  9. Hi, I have a difficulty deciding which guitar I wants, the main difference is between the pickups. The first guitar is Epiphone Tommy Thayer Les Paul in Electric Blue this uses Seymour Duncan pickups, and the other is the new Epiphone Joe Bonamassa "Black Beauty" Les Paul Custom Outfit in Ebony this uses ProBucker 2&3 Can I get some advice about which guitar to choose. I learned guitar for 6 years already this is my 3rd guitar I still have some difficulties, now I am doing grade 7 I really wants to hear from you which one is the better pickup and guitar?
  10. Hello everybody, My dad is an avid guitar player (all his life) and I purchased him a 'Gibson Les Paul Standard 2000'. I myself do not play guitar and a friend of mine who plays says he believes the model I purchased is a fake. I was just wondering if anybody could tell me? If so, I'll return it to the store I purchased from (A pawn store) and look for another guitar to purchase him. Any help would be appreciated, If I need to upload different photos (or better, please let me know). There's a link at the bottom to look at the photos. Thank-you for your time. Josh ht
  11. 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 pict
  12. Hi all, I’m new to the forum and I apologize in advance if I break any rules that I’m unaware of. I would really appreciate any help in identifying a classical guitar that may possibly be a Gibson. I’m very wary as there are many counterfeits in the market. I’ll try to add photos later, but I’m looking at a guitar for sale and thinking about purchasing it if it’s a real Gibson. The seller says that they’re selling it as a copy because it doesn’t have any sticker/stamp in the sound hole (and they can’t be responsible if it turns out to be fake). They show the serial
  13. Hello all! My brother has a “Gibson” that was gifted to him. We aren’t sure it’s a real Gibson, but do want to know! Tuning pegs and headstock seem off, the logo looks like a decal, and no sticker/tag in the inside, just a “G” at the base of the neck and a serial number on the back of the headstock. Any info helps! Unfortunately, I can’t upload pics of it? It won’t let me! i have an old email address that if you email me, I can send you pics of it at Mowe5303@lbc.edu (college email)! Any help helps! Thanks!
  14. Hey everyone i am possibly going to buy this but everything seems a bit weird like headstock, turning knobs, fretboard, pick ups? Could use a second opinion Thanks everyone
  15. Hey, this guitar is in a local pawn shop for about 8 hundred. i've never seen a gibson like this before and was wondering if anyone can tell me anything about it like when it was made, and if it is worth this much. i think the serial number is B006005. that was the number was on the back of the headstock anyway. sorry the picture isn't better. Thanks.
  16. Hi, my father purchased this Les paul Sg custom in the 70s. A lot of people have argued that it is from the 60s and others the 70s but there is no "made in USA". Fully bound, double split diamond inlay, stop tailpiece, triple gold plated humbuckers, tobacco finish on Mahogany body. Serial number 000513 impressed in to head. Please help settle this debate. Thank you!
  17. Please provide a solution to this specific problem. Ive got loud humming on a 2018 gib lp tribute with humbuckers through my amp. It only goes away with pu selector in middle WITH one pu volume turned down. Any other configuration (both pu turned up, bridge only, neck only) introduces loud hum. Hum is not present when using other instruments with same amp and cable or when unplugged completely. This hum is NOT affected by touching strings.
