    What Year Did Gibson Start Using Narrow Tall frets On R7's? Neck Shape?

    I've spent the last two months playing my '20 R8 almost exclusively. I wasn't in love with the frets at first, to be honest. Everything feels higher, well, because it is...lol. The nut is higher, the bridge is higher.... that said, I'm able to set my action lower than usual, and it plays more...

    Black bonnet knobs on a '61 Junior?

    I've got one coming with what appear to be original knobs. Did they start out this way, then go to reflectors? Anyone have a junior with stock bonnets? Serial/pot code range? Thanks, guys!

    Lil' fade on my '13 R8

    Y'all like this sort of thing, right? I'm curious to see how long this will continue. Went guardless for the first time on Sunday with my '13 R8. You can't really see it in person, but there is a pickguard shadow in the pics. Weird.

    Got my new 2013 R8 Les Paul!

    Whew! Man, the last few months have been a nightmare. I foolishly sold my '07 CR8 and was on the quest for a replacement. I thought it'd be fun, I don't usually shop for specific guitars and here was my chance. Wrong! It was nerve wracking, hit and miss…I went through a too heavy '05, a too...

    Pretty nice sounding and looking old JCM 800. Unmodded, as far as I can tell. Recent retube with Winged C EL34's,Ruby and Philips preamp tubes. Missing the back panel, and the jack nuts on the back have been replaced with metal ones. It is what it is, killer example, sounds great, quiet.$1100...
