  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. 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 number, which seems to be 515342, making it a 1965 or 1968? The i in the logo is dotted, which, I suppose, rules out he possibly of a 1968? There seems to be a ton of finish checking, leading me to believe it is indeed from around that period. Would appreciate any input. Thanks in advance, Ken
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
