  1. Each to there own opinion on this one, but this is NOT a Chibson! This is a Les Paul Standard that was been worked on by one of the best know luthiers in the UK, Martin Sims https://www.sims.guitars/ What are your views, what would have have done differently? Do you like it? Do you hate it? https://youtu.be/teG25GqcC9k There are children on our YouTube channel as we are a music school, so pretty please, keep it clean :-) I am really existed to hear your comments and what you would have done differently. Thanks for your time folks :-)
  2. I am tremendously lucky to have this incredible 2004 Les Paul Custom from the LQ series, made by the legendary company Fujigen in Japan! This exquisite guitar was shipped to me from Osaka by a very kind seller who offered it back in January; I just happened to come across it at the right time. Enjoy some photos: https://ibb.co/x7FT8wH https://ibb.co/JB6T77Z https://ibb.co/Ks7JqdJ https://ibb.co/HV9QM2W https://ibb.co/k5B10gp https://ibb.co/9hLD9bc From what I’ve researched, the LQ series is a limited edition run from 2004-2007. What makes it distinct from the rest of the Made In Japan Epiphone Les Paul Customs is that it was specifically made by Fujigen. Play guitar for long enough, and you’ll inevitably come across Fujigen (FGN). The reason these Made In Japan guitars are so revered is because of the Fujigen standard of quality. It is truly mythical. Any guitars from the Fujigen factory are flawlessly crafted with impeccable attention to detail. As you can see, my LQ has some obvious wear over the course of 16 years. I’ve replaced the truss rod cover and the tone knobs. I may replace the gold hardware in the future, only because the original parts are tarnished. The binding has aged really well though. Overall, the condition is amazing–as is the immaculate quality. All the scratches and dents are from the previous player, not a reflection of the highest care that went into the craftsmanship. From the binding and the fret work to the seamless fit and finish; I just cannot praise it enough! I've replaced the tone pots and the truss rod cover, as well as adding the unique gold treble/rhythm switch washer. The guitar just feels and plays amazing. Also the specs are crazy: One piece mahogany neck. Real Mother of Pearl inlays and appointments. Maple cap (yes, I checked). No weight relief, but the guitar is surprisingly light; it has just the right heft in my opinion. A nice, thin laquer finish. Bone nut. Amazing PAF pickups and wiring. One personal point of comparison would be my 2017 Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom GX. It’s a fantastic guitar! Yet it’s hard to really stand against this LQ Epiphone Custom because they’re specced so wildly differently, for distinct playing purposes. I will freely admit that my LQ deeply shakes my Prophecy’s excellence and that my LQ certainly makes my Gibson Les Paul Studio seem like a toy. But that’s really neither here nor there; the guitars are amazing. The point is that I’ve never played a better Les Paul. This is my holy grail guitar. I can now safely say that all the respect and admiration for Fujigen is absolutely true. Their quality is out of this world. Clearly, they build from a philosophy of passion, joy, pride, and player consciousness that I can literally feel when I play. I honestly can’t believe it’s real, that I get to hold it in my hands. I’m very honoured and proud to have this masterfully built Les Paul Custom!
  3. 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.
  4. Trying to determine between 1998 and 2008 (I believe) on a Les Paul Custom with S/N: CS-84751 Thanks!
  5. Hello i'm Febiuzz help me to identify the precise model and year of construction of this Guitar. serial Number 8 9072 Les Paul Custom made in Usa Thank you
  6. Hey Les Paul Lovers! Was hoping you could help me out in evaluating this Les Paul Custom for my grandpa. From the serial number seems to read 117934 which leads me to believe its a 1963 but in minimal research have only been able to find the SG's in that year. Any info/value would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Hi, I bought this Gibson Les Paul Custom and for the Serial check I guess it’s from 1969 but i want you help on that. I just wanted to confirm the year and get an estimate about it’s value. The serial number is: 580589 Here you have some photos: https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...KByX3RJRzQTxhI thanks
  8. So I buy a Gibson custom I need to know if it is authentic or not
  9. Hi, new here, and greetings from the land of kangaroos and wombats... For ages I've been searching for an answer to this question: In 1968 I bought a brand new Les Paul Custom which had no "Les Paul" written anywhere on the body. The truss rod plate had just "Custom" written on it. I know it was an authentic Gibson because I damaged the neck pickup and had to send the guitar to the 'Gibson people' in Sydney (I ive in Adelaide, some 800 odd mls from there) because in those days they were the only people authorised to repair Gibson guitars, or had the spare parts to do this. Well, two weeks later, to my delight, the guitar arrived back with a new pickup installed. Does anyone know anything about this particular peculiar model? Cheers, Mauri Berg.
  10. Hi there! Need help to make sure it's not a counterfeit. Many thanks
