....is why I joined the Gibson Forums.

WebLPd.jpg

The guitar is approx 2009 - I've never verified it yet - a Custom Shop Gibson LP custom which is the spec of a 1956 LP (goldtop) - solid mahogany, P90s (no staple pickup) and I think the colour is washed cherry.  I did not get a COA.

I am in the UK and bought this beautiful guitar from USA on ebay back in 2012.  It is everything you might imagine it to be from the picture.

After which I joined the Gibson forum in order to find out more and discuss guitars and related subjects with like-minded Gibson owners.   It has its ups and downs and has changed a lot since then but I have mostly really enjoyed it.  I got a warm welcome response to my very 1st post from a guy called Tim, a real expert.  I remember the Nugent wars, Fenderguy, Ludnuts.....I remember Axe, Shred, Milod, Dub, Surfpup, Stein, Rocketman, Donny, Retro, DaveinSpain, Cruz, RevLee, Searcy, my friend 4Hayden and many others.    I am dismayed to see the exit of Pippy and Big Bill, both of whom have been greats of the forum.   I hope Tman is ok.

But anyway......I hope you like the picture.  That really is what it is all aobut.

The row of albums you can see above the amp is alphabetically Coltrane to Doors; also includes Connors, Cooder, Corea, Coryell, Cream, Crimson, Davis, Desmond, and Dimeola.

Take care everyone.  

As Sparq (best wishes my friend) says, I'm gonna shut up now.

Lovely guitar jdgm - you have shown some beauties over the years...that black ES...oh man!

i joined to ask if anyone knew what my 69 Epi was as the only one I'd seen like it was on the Internet for sale in New York City....I later figured out it was my exact guitar and that the ad was 10 years old, during which someone shipped it to Oz [laugh]...I was very naive and the people here were cool about it. Yeah, 2013-16 were great here I thought, seemed like NGDs every day plus people building amps, guitars, pedals and whatnot  ....a great place to learn stuff and share thoughts about bands, albums and concerts. Good days generally!

I joined May 2015 after buying my 339. I wanted to know what to do about the G binding in the nut. 

At that time I didn't think I'd last. I was so shocked at the passionate outcry against the Nashville models (the 339 was then Memphis of course). Really glad I did stick around. I learned a lot here. Still am too.

I joined this forum because... well they shut down the Fender forum.   If I have $2500 for a classic guitar, I'd rather buy a Fender and save the left over $1000 for my next guitar (or whatever).   I feel like Gibsons are the 'Ferrari' of the guitar world.  There's no doubt Ferrari makes amazing cars but I'm just way too practical to pay $800 -$1100 for an oil change.  Nothing against Ferrari owners (or Gibson owners).   It's just not me. 

I have used Gibson guitar cleaner/polish.  Great stuff and reasonably priced.  I own an Epiphone Lucille which is just OK but nowhere near the quality of my Ibanez.  Maybe I'll pick up a studio model Les Paul someday, but considering everything they leave off the list - what am I paying for, a logo?  

Anyway, that's my unpopular opinion. Here is my Epi Lucille.   It's definitely nice to look at:

I'm gonna ask you a serious question. Are you on meds? You post the most whacked out s-hit.

What does guitar polish have to do with anything?

Thanks Fender. You screwed us. Is this the kind of drivel you posted there.

Did you happen to catch the bit about how to use "Ignore Users"?   I highly encourage you to use it so you can stop harassing me.  

I know but reading some of your posts, is cheaper than mushrooms.

Nice post jdgm. So that's a Les Paul Custom Custom. 😎 I miss a lot of those names you listed who I haven't seen on here in a while. Not all of them though. 🙂

I joined here sometime after I bought my LP Studio Plus in 2004. I know my date shows 2008, but I'm thinking I had an account earlier than that but there was some kind of crash and we all had to start over.
