  1. I have a Epiphone e-series nuclear Les Paul that may be one of a kind. After days of research I cannot find another nuclear LP with the classic “clipped open book” style headstock. Every other example ever features the e-series “dove wing” style with the big E printed on it. I checked the serial number and it was made in the unsung Korean factory in June of 2001, it is production number 0474. Has anyone ever found a E-series LP like that before? if people seem interested, I’ll post a vid and link on YouTube. thanks for any info/help
  2. Need help with this one. Had my Les Paul stolen that was signed to me from slash and need input on where to start. Have a police report but never had a serial. I've done the usual Craigslist and Facebook stuff but looking for ideas or avenues to take. Sheldon
  3. Ciao a tutti, sono nuovo in questo forum ma vi leggo da un po'. Da qualche mese mi è balenata l'idea di acquistare una Les Paul r8 e vorrei chiedervi qualche info a riguardo: che differenza c'è tra quelle con il certificato "arancione" e quelle con il certificato "a libretto"? a parte l'anno di produzione ovviamente. Per quanto riguarda i prezzi dell'usato noto che difficilmente si trovano al di sotto dei 2900/3000, come mai? sto cercando di capirne di più e ovviamente accetto suggerimenti. Grazie in anticipo!

  5. So, lil bit ago i bought a 2019 Gibson Les Paul Premium Quilt Ocean Perimeter Guitar. It was new and i love it. As new ir came with the usual case candy, gibson multi tool, cleaner cloth, care guide. What it was missing however was the Set up/Final Check photo that has come with most other Gibson's i bought new. I was kinda bummed that it didnt cause i actually thought "huh..... that pretty awesome gibson does this" when i got my first Gibsons and honestly had excitement for it when i got my others. Idk guess its kinda like a baby's first photo kinda thing xD Anyways i was bummed but cut my losses until i saw this video https://youtu.be/Qi3-D7N31eo and the what im guessing is the plant ceo, the same plant my guitar came from btw, says that they keep all those photos on file and could send one out if say a customer ever lost theirs...... and thus i got excited and instantly contacted customer support through email...... 2 weeks ago..... multiple times..... and tried calling but no answer....... so i ask this Am i just screwed xD does Gibson Customer Support Just not exist xD i wouldnt even be mad just to get a "nah we cant do that my dude" cause atleast then id know they actually READ the damned thing i sent in. Its rather concerning.... what if i actually had a real issue with my guitar....
  6. Need help with this. Saw this on the market place, price is too good to be true. Is this a fake? https://imgur.com/a/iY0Sy5b
  7. Does anyone know what the stock's strings in Les Paul Tribute DC Bass are? And any recomendated hardcase for this shorty ?
  8. I have been playing on and off with my Ibanez GSA 60 with a very small Marshall amplifier. I used it to get used to playing chords, chord changes, strumming patterns and a very few songs. I recently for a Yamaha THR 10 V2 amplifier so that I can use it to play songs with some jamming sessions from my mobile phone. Since I'm new to this THR amplifier from Yamaha, I tried to follow some settings that I got from some Youtube videos hoping that I can get the same sound out my my Ibanez, but it was not. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong or is my guitar not capable of! But nevertheless, I have been contemplating now to get a better serious guitar that sounds good and is of a better quality tone wise. I have listened to a few videos on Gibson LP and I'm interested in trying them out, but just like any other beginner into the LP's, I'm confused as to which ones I should be looking into? My understanding is that there is the Studio, Classic, Traditional and Standard though I'm not sure what the exact differences are between these variants. I would mostly be playing blues and jazz kind of music and the goal is definitely not get into playing with any band, but just be able to play a few songs and jam along. Could anyone please run me through the LP variants and suggest me where I should start. There is no hurry for me to get this one asap, but since I will be spending more on a LP, I want to make a conscious decision, spend lots of time trying out different variants and with the suggestion from the forum, get the right one that I can keep and play for long. What I would be very much interested to know between the LP variants is: Are the differences between the variants is just in the cosmetics like flame top, binding, gloss finish etc? This one here for example., looks like a bargain, but what I do not understand is that if it is a Studio or yet another totally new variant? https://www.thomann.de/de/gibson_lp_studio_tribute_2019_sit.htm?utm_source=idealo&utm_medium=psm&utm_campaign=idealode&offid=1&affid=229&subid=idealode
  9. Gibson CS 60th Anniversary 1957 Les Paul Standard Reissue Gloss Gold Top. Guitar is in perfect shape, comes with all the case candy and the vintage spec case of course. $3700 is fair, the cheapest I have found this particular guitar is $4400, and it keeps going up in value. One of 60 made for the 60th Anniversary of the original 57 gold top. Let me know if this is not the place to post. Thanks. Located in New Jersey.
  10. hi everyone, need an help to identify this guitar (for which i have also the model number) it says LPSFHSCH1 it's a 2009 studio, but i wanted to know the specs before going to try her. is this a faded, worn or a 'standard' studio one? what kind of neck (i prefer the thinnest ones)? weight relieved or a chambered? (it's about 3,7 kg so i think it's in the light side of lp) here's some shots. thanks, my friends best regards!
  11. Hi! It's my first post on this forum after completing google, searching for my issue. I bought the Les Paul Deluxe Player 2018 Satin Vintage Sunburst with mini-humbuckers last year and it's an awesome guitar. Last week I encountered some weird static noise during a gig when I moved around on stage. When I rubbed the guitar against my body (walking) or when I touch the back of the body (more noticeably when I brush my hand across the plastic cover for the volume and tone controls) I get this weird static/scratchy noise. The static sounds like a broken cable crackling, but I've tested with different cables and with the plastic cover off. Noise is still there. I've tested brushing my hand over the back of the guitar and the static noise can only be heard where the electronics are. There's no static noise from the front of body. I've looked inside the cavity for volume and tone and everything looks good, no bad wiring or anything that seems out of place. I also checked the jack input and here everything seems to be okay. Volume and tone pots are placed on a print card. 1. Have you encountered this before? 2. Do anyone have a fix for this? I'm don't have the best guitar tech knowledge, so if you reply I hope you cold keep it "simple-stupid". Here's a link to youtube to see for yourself: Youtube video *not that fluent in English, so if you need me to elaborate I'll do my best.
  12. I recently bought an Epiphone Player pack with a Les Paul Special II-LE for christmas. It worked fine on day 1. But the second day, catastrophe struck. The cable was the first problem, it wouldn't stay in the jack. I had to buy a seperate cable! Problem #2 (noticed later) the tone knob had somehow gotten desoddered. I had to take the guitar to a music store to have it resoddered. And to top it all off, it did not come with the chord sheet promised on the box.
  13. Hello Everyone, I have a L-6S that was passed down to me from my grandfather. After several years of playing it I would like to restore and replace some of the parts. Mostly replace the pickups, pots, and wiring. Everything on this is still the original equipment and other than what I just mentioned all is in great shape. I'm wanting more specifics on this brand if possible. I'm unsure of the exact year but I have the serial number. Also, one if the pickups has November 197X on it. So I'm almost there! Any suggestions on replacement parts would also help me out. I've attached some pictures as well, however having to resize them didn't improve the clarity. Thank you all.
  14. I got a 2018 les paul classic with grover tuner pegs. I was wondering what would be the best way to go for swapping them out for the deleux styled tuner pegs ?
  15. 1st off I know it is not an actual Gem series, however I have recently been been told that this guitar is "Rare & Highly Sought After". I purchased this guitar of a great fellow named Phil back in Nov. 2017. My son was looking to learn guitar & I wanted to get him a quality guitar. Of course I chose to buy a Gibson Les Paul. When a Gibson collector asked about a post on one of my old forum blogs (not this forum). He told me it was one of the rarer studios. All I know is it is a '98 Studio Emerald Green, using leftover Paint from the "Gem" Series and allegedly only a very few were produced. My curiosity peaked, so I am seeking any information I can get so why not check here on the GIBSON forum as I will probably get the most accurate authentic information. Thank you in advance for any help in this matter. 😎 See below
  16. What is the correct size Allen wrench that should be used for the Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro-II Truss Rod Nut? Please don't say 4 mm because 4 mm is too small. Matter of fact, here are the ones I've tried that are "close" to fitting with their results. * 4 mm - the suggested size from what I can find - Slides all the way in, but has about 30 degrees of play. Too much play that I will not risk trying to rotate the truss rod nut since that will strip it out. I can feel the the key slide in to the hex part so I know it is in there. * 4.5 mm - goes in to the center of the nut where it is round (see photo below), but it will NOT go in to where the hex part is. This is too big. * 3 mm - way too small, turns freely when all the way in. * 1/8 Inch (3.175 mm) - way too small * 9/64 inch (3.571875 mm) - way too small too - turns but catches slightly * 5/32 inch (3.96875 mm) - too small too. Catches but still a lot play like the 4 mm * 3/16 inch (4.7625 mm) - way too large * 11/64 inch (4.365625 mm) would be the next size larger than 5/32 but they do not make that size (I've searched for hours). I've also seen this size referred to as 4.4 mm on a few Allen Wrench charts. Some charts "claim" this is a valid Allen wrench size, but I'm guessing it has not been made for decades. The next 1/64th step up from that would be 3/16 which is too large. I've checked the nut to ensure that it was not stripped or rounded, and the edges do look straight and smooth. I've included a photo, which was not that simple to illuminate and it looks kind of grainy due to zoom factor. But I think its clear enough to show the hex edges are clean and not stripped/rounded. Is there a such thing as an odd (non-standard) sized Allen wrench that is actually used to make the adjustments? If so, who sells them and what would be the proper size that they would go by? I've wasted at least a good 6 to 8 plus hours trying to figure this out and at this point I would not be too surprised if this may be an one-off anomaly. Thanks greatly for any and all help that you, or anyone else, can provide, RB
  17. Hello everybody, I´m playing e-guitar for about 2 months now (actually 10 years, but more was more of an on/off thing). Until very recently, I played on a "cheap" Yamaha e-guitar, which now sadly stopped working. Now the Les Paul is a guitar I always found cool (since Slash plays it in Sweet Child´o´mine and that was the first song I learned), and also I read somewhere that the strings are a bit further apart than on other guitars. This actualy helps me because the tip of my fingers is... kinda fat, so i often have problems when playing multiple strings that I accidently touch the other ones. So my Questions: 1. Do you recommend the Epiphone(!) les paul to me? 2. Which "model" should I get? I´ll definitely never go above "playing the guitar is just a hobby"-level and I don´t think I need some fancy things that only pro players would appreciate. Im sorry this post is kinda unorganized, but I hope I got accross what im looking for and on what level I am. Any help is appreciated! P.S.: The cable could be defect too. Im getting a new one but getting a new guitar will happen sooner or later anyway (kinda literally falling apart).
  18. http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// In my opinion, no guitar collection is complete without a Goldtop Les Paul! I’m extremely lucky to have this gorgeous Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro in Metallic Gold, one of the rarest finishes available. It’s an out of production model and I literally bought the last one left in Canada...on sale! Huge thank you to Long and McQuade for always being amazing in every way and to Walker and Williams for their phenomenal guitar straps. This is my third Epi guitar and honestly, I’ve never been prouder to play one (thanks to all the hardworking folks in the Qingdao Epi factory!) As soon as I took this incredible Epi out of its case, I haven’t been able to pick my jaw up off the floor. The fit and finish is flawless. I’m impressed by the perfect gold paint (stunning when the light hits it) and the classy antique cream binding. Pickup selector is rock solid, tone knobs are cozy and feel great. Attention to detail is impeccable. Playability is so buttery smooth and comfortable! I especially want to point out the worn satin neck: my Prophecy Custom Plus GX has a satin neck as well, but whereas that one is smooth, the Traditional has a rustic, almost open pore mahogany neck and body that has this wonderful worn-in feel. Of course the tone is where this guitar really shines! I can’t heap enough praise onto the pickups. I love playing in the rhythm position, but the Probucker in the bridge sounds insanely good I’m tempted to just leave it in lead. Also, combining both pickups sounds absolutely heavenly. Running straight through my Boss Katana 100, I’ve gotten quite a range of tones: from pristine to warm, jazzy cleans, scorching distortion, throaty growls, and tasty crunch; then adding some boost and compression from my pedals brings everything to a whole new level! I don’t usually split the coils, but I appreciate having this feature just the same. Epiphone really went for the gold when they created this beautiful guitar. The guitar gods have definitely smiled upon me, and I’m grateful to be playing for many, many years to come!
  19. 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?
  20. 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?
  21. I need help fully identifying my guitar. What I know: 2004 Gibson les Paul Bought new but naturally we do not have the paperwork. 🤦‍♀️ Anywho! All images are to big to post so heres a link! Pictures Thank you!
  22. Hello All, I've recently been browsing Gibson's Website from Australia and it seems that a few guitars have disappeared from view/ possibly been discontinued by Gibson? These are a mix of USA and Custom models, seem to all be 2019, 2018 and some earlier models as well. I looked for the Les Paul Standard, but it is nowhere to be found, nor is the Traditional, even the HP... It doesn't matter what line you look at- even Acoustic or Custom from what I understand. To put it simply, a noticeable number of models names seem to have disappeared from a number of ranges (Explorer, SG, Les Paul, Memphis). Is this a glitch or has Gibson actually made the decision to discontinue the seemingly invisible models? Any info is much appreciated.
  23. I recently purchased a 2005 68 Reissue LP Custom and everything checks out on it. The only thing that has me freaked out is the assymetrical top. Check it out and let me know your thoughts please. I’ve checked everything and it is legitimate, however I just realized the symmetry on the top is crooked, could this just be a flaw? serial: 052658, Weight is correct, Joint is correct, inlays are correct, Gibson Logo is correct, Truss Rod cover is correct, even the internals are correct, Grovers are correct, Bindings are good. I’ve just not seen a top like this before. The line in the middle of this top exits between the G and B string. Every Gibson I’ve looked at exits between D and G.
  24. Buongiorno, Ho acquistato da un mese una Les Paul standard 2019, premetto che l’ho trattata sempre con i guanti e sempre in casa (appartamento con aria condizionata), ieri mentre la ammiravo compiaciuto ho notato un alone nella parte alta del bordo come se la vernice lucida si fosse danneggiata, capirei dopo anni, ma dopo un mese (non certo con utilizzo serrato) mi scoccia parecchio, quale può essere la causa?
