    Gibson Les Paul Custom - CS serial number

    Hello all. I have a feeling I'm going to have to disappoint an acquaintance as he needs to sell a guitar he owns. He bought it as a Gibson Les Paul Custom. The serial number doesn't come up in the online search. Thoughts please!? Thx David

    Gibson GA-19 RVT Falcon demo

    I just made a video of my GA-19 RVT. I'm no Pete Thorn, but I thought people might like to hear the amp. I love it for the reverb and clean sounds mainly. I'll do a dirty LP video later :) I got it from the son of the original owner. All stock with what seems to be original RCA tubes. I stop...

    WTT: my ES330 (67/68) for your LP Deluxe (EU)

    m thinking of getting an LP Deluxe. Not playing my Cherry Red ES330 as much as I should, I would consider a trade for the right LP Deluxe. No breaks and no refinishes. My 330 has no breaks.. replaced tuners (Klusons) and 1 abr1 saddle is metal rather than plastic. More Details to possible trade...

    Arbiter fuzz face info!

    Hi all whilst collecting some speakers, I noticed a few pedals that the seller had. Now, i don’t know much about fuzz faces, not really being a big fuzz fan, but my mind did say that an arbiter fuzz is a good thing. So, it’s mine now :salude and having looked, I think it’s an original. Can...

    Les Paul Refret in Belgium or Germany

    my Bahama blue 1981 les paul could do with a refret. I have kept it with the original frets for a while, but they are low and I don’t play it much because of this. So even if I’ll lose the nibs and some originality, I think it deserves to be played and more playable. In Belgium or perhaps...

    NGD: ES-330 1967/8 Bridge saddle question

    Hi all. I just got this ES-330, which is wonderful. Apart from changed tuners, the high E saddle was replaced with a metal one, so I put a different bridge on for now. I was wondering where to get Plastic saddles for an ABR1? Are they available? Also, are replica tuners available that would look...

    More pickup ID please! Double white 1980

    I just bought his 1980 Gibson Humbucker. The seller puts it at 7.3k I want to fit it to my ibanez LR 10 as I don't particularly like the pickups in it for classic tones. It will go in the neck I think. I have a 1981 les paul with Shaws and love them. Also always liked t tops. Is it either of...

    2012 deluxe fingerboard

    Hi all I am considering a used 2012 deluxe and am wondering if anyone can tell me wether the wood is Katalox or Rosewood? My 81 Standard has Ebony and so I would like a rosewood board rather than something that apparently is closer to ebony (katalox) I presume all Gibson RW boards are layered...

    1981 les paul bridge replacement

    This is a great sounding LP as is, BUT I was thinking of trying out a new bridge and tailpiece to see if I can get any improvements. Any idea what would be a good replacement? ABM seem to make an aged nickel tailpiece but no actual bridge. Also, does anyone do plastic saddles like on the ABR-1...

    SG Identification.. early 70's?

    I am thinking of trading some studio gear and this has been offered. It's a refin and has non original parts a bigsby added but no breaks. P90's and trapezoid inlays....so I am guessing it is a standard with P90's and a new guard.. 1970 or so?? Could I be right?? Could be a nice player. Thx guys!
