Hello mrgibson01...I saw your old post regarding 1961 humbucker, single slot brass screws in base, no decal. I have an identical one pulled from a 1961 ES-355. Cover has been off: has the square in the circle. Are you still active??
Hello! I recently came across some black hardware from a 1960 Les Paul Gold Top. Among these parts were a backplate combo, a pickguard, knobs and two pickup rings. The pickup rings are M8s, so they were replaced at some point, but I am not sure about the back plates or the pickguard. How do I date them? tips greatly appreciated
Hey Joe! New guitar player here! I just started learning to play last December after spending my entire life in awe of Duane Allman, who I proudly share middle names with, thanks to my dad. His biggest fan next to me lol. You've been a huge inspiration to me, as well, Joe. I just hate that, I waited until 38 yrs old to learn to play. Better late than never, huh?
Thank you for all of the music and beautiful gear you share with us. The amount of respect I have for you is immeasurable. Hope you have a great New Year! Play Dickeys guitar for me! I only wish my first live electric guitar experience could've been an Allman Brothers Band concert. I can only imagine. Peace, Brother!
