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 wanted one and I really want to keep it feeling new. I heard Gibson's pump polish is the best next thing to it, does it smell similar? I'll be thankful for any advice on this.
Hello. This is my first post. I recently installed new tuners on my explorer and hater them, so I put the old grovers on. The only problem is that I had to drill holes, and so I plugged up the holes with toothpicks. They are barely visible because I put touch up furniture paste on them. But they are re still noticeable to me. This is my favorite guitar and I can’t forgive myself. Any recommendations on what to do? Is it possible to get the back of the headstock refinished?
Guys,hope everyone’s safe during covid. I have a specific question about finish cleaner. I recently acquired a '71 Goldtop and accidentally spilled a drop of alcohol/oil contained liquid. So stupid,I want to tear my hands off. It made a track on the finish, not too deep, but surely has some deepness. Idiot. Knowing,that alcohol destroys nitro, My question is - did I completely ruin it and its going to stay there forever? (no refin suggestions on all original 71)) what to do? Can any cleaner handle that? Gibson Pump? Luthiers choice? GHS black bottle cleaner? Virtuoso Cleaner (I’ve read its the best)
I am looking for a guitar strap for my 2013 ES-335 with a nitro finish. I am having a hard time finding options that may work...based on my research I believe I can only pick either a cotton or leather strap. I stumbled across Gibson’s straps here: https://www.gibson.com/Gear/Straps I am interested in the Mosaic strap but am really curious what materials all the straps use. It looks like they are lined with a leather backing. Can all of these straps be used on a 335 with a nitro finish?
