    Most Auto stores carry a line of finishing products (polishing cmpds), like Meguiars. 3M is also very good ~ but pricey.

    ES-335 Pickup Decision

    I have an '85 335 Dot Neck w/ Shaw('s) installed. Purchased it about 20 years ago. I upgraded the pots to 500k long ago, but the orig ceramic caps are still in place. I have not messed w/ the pickups. Recently, the neck pickup was cutting in & out. I tracked it down to a frayed wire causing the...

    ETG-150 Electric Tenor guitar

    I'm working on an Gibson ETG-150 Tenor Archtop w/ one P-90 pickup, that's possibly a 50's or 60's model? I'm helping a friend restore it, but haven't had much luck finding it's DOB. It's similar to this ETG-150.....but w/ a Cutaway & 26 3/8" scale (13 3/16" to 12th fret)? It also looks to be a...

    Need Help Dating a Gold Top...

    I am working on a friend's Les Paul & we're trying to determine exactly what year it was made? The Serial # stamped on the back of the Hdstk is 909353. It does not have 'Made in the USA' stamped on it. Looking at Gibson's Serial Nos, it appears to be made in 1968. However, all the indicators...

    Roger Steen's Les Paul

    I've been a Tubes fan since their inception in '75 & just now I'm wondering about Roger Steen's Lester. I believe he's been playing it from the Tubes' beginnings. I'm guessing that it must be an oldie. Would anyone here have any info on it? There are some good shots of RS rippin' on it in this...

    1959 ES-355TD

    Just got home Schoenberg's Guitars in Tiburon, CA, oogling at this '59 355 TD Stereo. All original w/ a nice faded finish & PAF's. Looked like an OK deal...priced at $15,750? A little pkdg shrinkage & some gold flaking on the Bigsby, but OTT...the finish is in great shape. Not the bright red...

    Tuners Differences...

    What's the difference between Gibson's standard press-in bushing Keystone Tuners (the green ones) & the Historic variety? I was the told that they are different. Looking at prices of them, there is about a $30-$40 spread. Is one better then the other? I'm not referring to any of Gibson's...

    Stainless ABR-1 Posts on ES-330

    Does anyone know if the Stainless Steel Posts Mod for an ABR-1 will work on an ES-330. I mean, I'm sure it's doable, but how far can you drill down into the top before you go through it. Mine look real wimpy & have slight movement in them. You'd think SS would be one way to strenghten up the...
