    WTB: Pre-CBS vintage Stratocaster

    I'm on the lookout for a great vintage pre-CBS Stratocaster. My budget range most likely puts me in the rosewood board era but I may be able to flex a bit there. I am looking for a pre mid-1964 (clay dots, old style logo, etc). A refret, new nut, and honest wear are all welcome. I am looking for...

    Replacement pick guard needed for a 64 firebird... does anyone make these?

    I have a reverse 64 firebird iii and the pick guard has shrunk a fair amount. I tried an off the shelf Gibson replacement, but every one that I have tried has holes that don't line up with the screws on my 64. I tried one of these...

    50s telecasters - any tips on where to look?

    Despite the forum name, this fender subforum seems to be one of the most concentrated places on the internet when it comes to a collection of people who actually own and have lots of first hand experience with original vintage fenders. Do you have any tips for me when it comes to dealers that...

    1962 es-335 neck profile question

    I have read some conflicting info online about late 1962 es-335 neck profiles. Do these tend to start filling out later in the year or are they generally still super slim just like a 1961?

    Les Paul Historic Juniors

    I am slightly confused about Gibson's current product line regarding Les Paul Jrs. Are all current LP Jrs "Historic" or custom shop (whatever they are calling it now) guitars, or are some from the regular Gibson USA line. I am specifically looking for a double-cut model, preferably in TV...

    I have what is probably a stupid question but here it goes anyway... Whenever people are discussing the authenticity of a vintage burst on this forum, it seems like the inlays are always mentioned as a sign of a real/fake vintage LP. What is it about the inlays specifically that provide a sign...

    Shipping an SG w/ Maestro

    Is it a bad idea to leave the arm on the Maestro tailpiece of an SG during shipment? I'm pretty sure that Gibson ships SGs with the trem arm attached, but I wanted to get some other opinions. Any help would be greatly appreciated- thanks!!...
