    Wraparound vs TOM String Tension

    Just throwing this out. A good fret buffing and polishing has done wonders for me before on my guitars. Years ago I had a guitar fretted by Holger Notzel. When I got it back the frets were so slick I jumped the strings from .010’s to .011’s and never looked back. I’ve polished the frets on...

    Brand new Custom with super collapsed bridge

    The bridge on the guitar isn’t an ABR-1, it’s a Nashville. Or did you just put the Nashville on so you could play it?

    what amp do you think Peter Green was using on "The Supernatural"

    Not sure but I think that track had a studio plate reverb on it.

    Freddy King's goldtop-- any photos?

    I went to a Clapton concert at Rich Stadiom in Buffalo some many years ago. Clapton was drunk or stoned. He was chasing the girl singer around trying to goose her with his guitar. Finally one of the backstage guys brought out Freddie King to add some class to this clown show. He started with...

    LeroyParnell Goldtop RI

    Anyone know what year his Goldtop RI came out? I thought they were fairly recent. I just got one in and it has the older historic reissue swirly inlays with sharp points. Thanks!

    Gibson CS LP '68 Reissue Gold Top Survey

    I picked up one of the newer reissues a while back. It’s not one of the aged ones. It has the crown on the headstock and Les Paul logo on the truss rod cover. Weighs right at 9lbs. I’ve never enjoyed P 90’s as much as I do with this guitar. And the neck is crazy comfortable, it seems to be...

    Custom 1968 or 1969

    the guitar has a square hole for the wiring. They need a round hole drilled all the way from jack to switch hole for one piece I believe.

    How were factory installed Bigsby units grounded?

    Didn’t they get grounded at the butt end through one of the 4 bigsby mount screws with a wire from the control cavity? I had a ‘65 Sheraton and that’s how the it was grounded.

    '60's 345 dating...

    I just got this a few weeks ago in a super smooth deal off REVERB. It was sold to me as a '67 which it could very well be but I'm thinking it may be a little bit earlier. It's got the higher spaced logo and crown, wide bevel guard, and what looks like original control knobs. I pulled the...

    Henry Vestine Custom

    I'm pretty sure that all the Black humbuckered LP customs I've seen pictures of Henry playing were late '60's guitars. This one has a painted on 5 digit serial numbers. The photo is from '69 so could it be anything but a '50's guitar?
