    I do thank you for the higher resolution photos ... far better than any I took. And I am happy to refer people to you, which I do. I just think it deserves more info than the small amount on your description and the one photo of the back of the headstock. Explaining the "shim" is a great start. That explains why there are no added wings showing, and ends the speculation of a grafted headstock.


    On the back of the headstock there is a thin piece of wood (shim), the shape of a stinger to add strength. This repair was done by Gibson in the 60’s. The headstock was never broken off. There is no graft to the headstock.

    It’s solid as a rock, guaranteed! Stunning early 1960 Burst with all 1959 features. Big 1959 neck with original factory large frets.

    There is only one photo of the back of the headstock, which I not self explanatory.
    I have had several people ask me about it, and I was hoping Gary's would go into detail [which is also not in the listing].

    Thanks Coil [and Gary]!


    If you are having trouble posting other photos, be sure to read the first thread in the Front Desk area of the LP Forum. Plus, there is a Test Area to practice with.
    You can't really delete a post, but you can use the Edit Post button to remove any or all content, and maybe just leave a smilie of some kind, including this one for computer frustration:

    If you have further problems, contact the admin [MikeSlub] or maybe CDaughtry.
