  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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).
  4. 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!
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
