  1. Hi I was wondering if anyone in the UK had a GIBSON GSS100 for sale and if so how much? Thanks Dan
  2. That's it. That's the whole entire post. 2020 is Epiphone's best model year yet. Anyone who seems surprised by this reality hasn't been paying attention to the amazing quality Epiphone has been steadily putting out . Especially over the past five years or so. This year we have all the incredible Les Pauls. Including the revamped Prophecy line. The Masterbilt Texan, along with the Frontier and Excellente models that were reissued. Same as the Coronet and the Wilshire. Now the latest Inspired By Gibson Electrics: ES-335s and Figured ES-335s and the Acoustics: Hummingbird, SJ-200, and t
  3. Hi dear L5s enthusiasts! This guitar is a mystery to me. In all the years of playing Gibson L5s I have never seen one with this finish. So far I only knew about sunbursts, firebursts and natural finishes from that era. What do you think? Is the guitar refinished? Also this guitar seems to have a 2-piece top, 3-piece middle and 2-piece back body. None of the L5s guitars from the 70s had that. They all had the 3-piece top, 3 piece middle and 3-piece back body. You can even see it on all the models (firebursts, sunbursts, naturals) through their finishes. The first time I know that this gu
  4. Hi! I just noticed that the quality control paper has a different serial no. than my gibson guitar. It is the same model and the serial no. thats in the quality control paper is for a gibson that was made one day after mine. Is this normal?
  5. Ok I’m trying to identify a Gibson acoustic. I can find no stickers or stamps etc showing a serial number. My dad was born in 1938 and said it was given to him when he was about 12, so thinking it’s from around 1950. Including some images if anyone is able to assist. It was mostly never played and in an old case for probably 50 years. My wife had someone work on the bridge about 20 years ago in hopes I’d play it. I strum on it and pick some chords but I’m no guitar player. Anyway if anyone could help me identify this guitar model and around the year it was made I’d appreciate it
  6. Hi everyone, sorry if this has been posted before or if it seems somewhat weird but I got myself a Gibson Les Paul Classic for Christmas and I'm in love with it. I'm really happy that Gibson seems to be making their best guitars ever since JC and Cesar took over. The thing is, all of you must be familiar with that wonderful vanilla-like scent that comes from the nitrocellulose finish, I know it's gonna wear off eventually and I was wondering if there is any way to preserve it or make the guitar smell like it again. I know it must sound weird but it's my first Gibson, I've always wan
  7. Hey all, I recently came across a pretty vintage looking Gibson ES-335 that I’m going to get fixed up. I’m interested in knowing what year it was made and where. The serial number is 6 digits - 955153. The “I” is dotted in the Gibson logo. Haven’t had much luck trying to pinpoint any info by looking at Gibson’s Serial # Verify page. Any help would be much appreciated. Pics below!

  8. I have a 347 , blond w the additional switch , serial number #80112525 . I’m having an issue deciphering the date of manufacture . It also has an unusual cartoon (under the clear coat) on the headstock - anybody no anything about this ? It really looks like Howard Roberts
  9. I’m looking at a acoustic for sale at a great price, but I think it’s suspicious! It has a hummingbird pick guard, and J 45 on the truss rod cover. I’ve never seen both, any help out there? I asked for a close up picture of the sticker inside the sound hole, it says hummingbird custom.
  10. I bought this guitar at Guitar Center back in ‘09 and I have to say I’m disappointed in the build quality. There’s been a few issues creeping up on the guitar, some are cosmetic, but others are a bit more troubling. This leaves me with three choices: I could sell the guitar, trade-it in, or fix it. This was my first big guitar purchase, I was pretty young and naive at the time and if I could do it again I would save up a bit extra and get exactly what I wanted. I don’t want to sell it and I don’t need a new guitar — I have this one, a Fender Telecaster made in Corona, CA, and
  11. Hi I am about to buy this guitar but I am having a hard time finding out whether is a real one or fake one No labels inside just what you see Thank you

  13. Can anyone in Europe inform me as to why the delivery of the Adam Jones Artist Series Signature Guitars are delayed? What’s the issue? Thanks.
  14. I am considering purchasing this 1939 J-35. If it $ 5,000, do you guys purchase? Please tell me about the damage to the neck.

  16. Been looking for over 12 months for one of these. If anyone sees one about, or has one they"d be willing to sell, please get in touch.
  17. My son and I bought this guitar this past weekend. Obviously it REALLY OLD. Inside thru one F-Hole it says, N-2. Thru the other F-Hole it says L 353. I've scoured the internet and can't seem to find anything like this. Can someone please help? Have you ever seen on? What year are they from? How much are they worth? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Shane
  18. Ordered back in June from Bailey Brothers and received it today. Jumbo body RW-wise I've had a J-45 Custom RW and Dwight Yoakam Honky Tonk Deuce RW. Both nice guitars but the sound didn't cut it. I do like my NL RW and Stage Dlx RW. First impressions Visual -Very nice VOS finish. The nitro is shrunk into the grain looking like a true vintage guitar. Finish looks very thin. The rosewood doesn't have the pores completely filled in which gives it an old time look. Aged binding looks very good. Even looks like a little bear claw going on just north of the bridge. One photo shows it fla
  19. Hello thanks for having me, I recently bought a 2016 Gibson Les Paul standard and everything in it is a dream come true, but there is a detail. The binding (cream binding) in the areas that you sit and play, I think this guitar was mostly used sitting down by the previous owner, are a little bit black stained. Areas like the arm rest and mostly the lower (only) horn. Is not super obvious from far but I can see it a lot. I've read that NAFTA can take it out but I want to make sure. Do polishing with heavy cut compound will solve this. Any suggestions guys?
  20. 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 succ
  21. Good evening, I've recently bought a Les Paul Studio from the 1997, great one, full mahogany body, ebony fingerboard, klusson tuners, equipped with pafs... Though, I've noticed that when I plug in my rig (Vox v845, boss sd1, vox vt100x), when the bridge volume pot is set from 5 to 10, when I mute the guitar, it makes a strange noise, similar to a whistle. I thought that live it would have been gone, but still... Does anyone know something more about it?
  22. I purchased my first Gibson guitar about a week ago a 2014 Gibson Memphis ES-335 Studio. I absolutely love the stripped down simplified form of this guitar. But it is hard to find any info on this guitar, and the info I do find it seems to list both the 2014 and the 2015 in the same group. Both have the simplified single master tone/volume pots, the output jack is on the side instead of on the top, Grover tuners, maple block, and no pick guard. But I came across a video from NAMM 2015 in the Gibson booth where they claimed there are improvements with the 2015 Studio but they didn't go into
  23. Hello everyone, I was recently reunited with my great grandmothers Gibson acoustic. Everyone I've showed it too has acted stange about it so I feel as through I may have found something really special. I was wondering if you guys had any tips for identifying it. I was thinking it could be a 30’s j-35 but that’s only a guess. Any info would be amazing. Thanks! -Jon IMG_4553.MOV
