  1. 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)
  2. Hi! I am hoping someone can help me id this particular Gibson. It is sort of like a U2, but has 4 control knobs instead of flip switches. It does have a serial number and "Made in USA" that is barely legible thru the paint and I really don't want to remove the paint to make it more visible. It looks like the serial number may start with 82 or 89. It is a bolted neck. Kohler wammy bar with string locks. 4 pickpups. It is not a strat type. Came with a chainsaw type case. Plays great, the fretboard is super comfy. Solid wood body, not a Sonex. Grover tuners.
  3. Hello, I'm going to buy a Gibson Les Paul Classic 2019 Heritage Cherry Sunburst, I have found the same Guitar with two different model number : Gibson Les Paul Classic Heritage Cherry Sunburst LPCS00HSNH1 and Gibson Les Paul Classic Heritage Cherry Sunburst LPCS19HSNH1 Could you tell me the differences between the two models? Thanks
  4. Hi everyone, i'm about to exchange my Les Paul Studio 1999 (way too heavy for me) with a 2009 Explorer. The owner of the Explo sent me pictures of the guitar and i noticed this defect on the back side of the keyboard. He told me that you can't feel it by touching, that is not a bump (he informed me about all the others bumps and scratches) and that he never noticed it before taking flash photos for me. It looks like something that involves finish more than a bump (he said that you cant notice it by touching it). Is it wise to exchange my Les Paul for that guitar (if it sounds nice)? Thanks everyone Best regards
  5. We have a 1955 3/4 Gibson acoustic guitar that we are trying to get a value on. Has original case and is in great condition. Has these numbers T5871-82 LG0 thanks for any help!!
  6. Finally getting going on the music room. I tried to get one of those old heavy carved church pews like one of our members (bayou bengal) has but could not find one locally for a decent price. I think I may have room for a few more.

    Locally for sale asking $3500 The luthier I use fixed this up for one of his customers and they want to sale it. He took off the warped plastic bridge, made a new one and put a new maple bridge plate https://www.zeilerknightrepairs.com/?fbclid=IwAR2YnGqd12BW1nDe1J_4xY5cRdUEVe1WV7mvXCuuTWVF-yeOhnaSSRwfIeg Jamonn Zeiler does great work. He's currently in business with Ben Knight who is also doing great work. Both are working performers. Ben is the son of Chris Knight
  8. A couple Gibbys on local CL No affiliation, no interest https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/msg/d/bethel-gibson-dove-for-sale-or-trade/6989206077.html https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/msg/d/bethel-gibson-hummingbird-for-sale-or/6989220239.html
  9. Salve, mi sono appena iscritto per volermi confrontare con voi. Vorrei fare un upgrade e comprare una nuova chitarra; ho trovato dalle mia parti un Gibson Les Paul Studio Alpine White, del 1995, in buone condizioni e mi piace esteticament. Me la venderebbe a 500€, voi cosa ne pensate? Avrei piacere ad ascoltare vostri pareri e consigli dato che sono nuovo nel mondo Gibson. P.s. Per chi me lo chiederà non è la versione con gold hardware bensì quello chrome standard. Inoltre; Qualcuno saprebbe anche dirmi che Pick Up monterebbe?
  10. My name is Peter and I'm from Chicago. I've owned lots of guitars and Gibson has always been a favorite. I've attached a pic of the two I have left.
  11. Hi All, I really love my Gibsons, I have 6, and just love them, but I just got my first Custom shop and it is wonderful. It is a 2019 Les Paul Special Double Cut Figured Maple Top. It plays so nice, sounds so grungy and it looks so perfect. I've attached a couple photos, and if anyone else has one and could share their experiences I'd appreciate it. Thanks! Dave.
  12. Hi guys, I'm new to this forum scene and I have a question about my guitar. I bought a Gibson Traditional pro 2 in 2013 from PMT in Cambridge UK but something has been puzzling me for years. All the Tr pro 2 models in this year have chrome hardware but mine came with gold... Was this a one off or was there an unknown batch with gold hardware?
  13. I have the opportunity to pick up a Gibson acoustic guitar for $250 by tomorrow, but I don't know if this is a good deal for an acoustic. I don't have a lot of acoustic experience, but I've heard not-so-good things about Gibson's lineup. Is this something I should be jumping all over, or would my $300 Yamaha do just as good? the thing is, if its from the last decade, even if its a real gibson the quality is probably only worth 250 anyway. some of those guitars are way overpriced for how they sound and feel. if it plays nice maybe consider it, even a fake guitar can work really well for you if it was built to spec. would be good even as a backup or a guitar to keep in a different tuning.
  14. Greetings, i was curious to know how rare an ebony finish is for the Gibson Custom EDS 1275 model produced in recent years. I have this model in this finish but do not come across others. Thank you for your interest!
  15. I bought my Gibson SG Standart in 2008 in New York it is my most valuable asset. I live in Portugal and I'm having some electric problems with one of the pickups. I wanted to send it to a repair shop. I tried contacting gibson, to see if they have a trustee repair partner in Portugal, I've contacted them in Facebook and Instagram, even the repair shop page in fb. I've sent them a email and got no answer, it has been a month... My questions are does anyone know if they have a specific page so I can contact them? Would you trust your Gibson to a non gibson certified guitar shop, even if it is a main one in Lisbon ( my town) Thanks
  16. Salve a tutti Gibsoniani, sono nuovo, mi chiamo Dario e sono molto interessato al basso nel titolo ma non riesco a trovare niente sul web! Possibile? A quanto ho capito non li producono più ma ne avranno venduto qualcuno spero..dove sono finiti!? Grazie per le eventuali risposte
  17. What do you guys think? Solid brazilian rosewood back and sides or laminated?
  18. Hey guys, first post here, hope everyone is having a good day. I've had a Les Paul copy for the last 10 years which was a birthday present that had never been used until recently. I've been learning guitar for the last couple months and I'm so happy i decided to start learning, but months and months before I've been looking at guitars i might want to buy for myself which would probably be a Gibson Flying V. i like the look of the natural look, but i would like to have one with a color on it. I know that i could get the B-2 or even the custom shop, but I'm not entirely sure. is there a way i can design my own? best to go to local dealers? I'm just not sure, if whats on the website is the limit of what i can buy for the 2019 range. would appreciate extra info, and any questions id be happy to answer. thanks Adam

  20. Hey, I've found on the internet this used Gibson Les paul Vixen. The seller want for it 420€ and I think it's just a great price. I am new in Gibson... this is gonna be my first so I want to ask you guys. What do you think? Is it legit or just fake? Thanks very much!
  21. What’s the best way to find out a beginning asking price for several Gibson’s that I want to sell?
  22. Hey folks; I have an SG ‘61 Reissue that I was fortunate enough to have signed by Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. To make a long, sad story short, my old college roommate kicked it over while on a stand. It cracked the finish on the body right below the tone knobs and around the side and back (he caught it before it toppled over and hit the neck or headstock on the floor). This happened about 4 years ago, and I just recently noticed some small cracks in the finish where the cream binding goes down the fretboard on the neck. So, it’s time to bite the bullet and have it fixed. My question to anyone who has had experience with this: how much do you think Gibson will charge to fix these cracks? The pictures show the damage on the body and now the neck... as well as one of Derek’s signature 😛
