    (UK) Gen I Protector

    Bought this a while back, figured I'd use it eventually but alas it has sat empty since, thought I'd offer it to the LP enthusiasts here before I advertise it elsewhere. Red lining, 3 plastic latch, ribbon in place, all round great condition for something nearly as old as I am! Been a while...

    LPF inspired singlecut by Heatley

    Built by Scott Heatley on Vancouver Island. His LP-inspired 'Tradition' model - mahogany, mahogany, maple and braz. Some lovely P90s to finish the recipe. When pondering the finish for it I knew I wanted it to look 'old', like a guitar which had already faded. Scoured the internet for the...

    1954 LP Goldtop

    Hi For sale, my '54 Goldtop. Appraised by Gruhn (via email and photos), I suspected a re-fret though they say they "see no evidence of this" (appraisal docs included in sale), and valued guitar around $23k (will post exact figure when I get home and dig docs out)......but, did point out one of...

    Urgent help required IDing this (59?) 335

    Hi All In the most unexpected place today I noticed a tobacco burst 335 looking thing hanging on the wall behind a load of other non-musical stuff. I got the guy to pull it out so I could have a look, seems like potentially a '59 335, or bits of one anyway! I'd really appreciate your opinion...

    Help req'd regarding this 'original' P90

    Hi Guys Got a pair of 50s P90s recently, both were received damaged. That's a separate story altogether. However, I've been looking at the pics again, totally focusing on the damage.... and a friend has just pointed out that some of the screws don't seem original. What do you think? Some...

    Current prices on 50s Juniors?

    Hi guys Er, okay....how's this.... I'm curious as to the current approximate market values of late 50s DC Juniors, specifically cherry ones. I keep an eye on Ebay to see what's what, and also track the usual dealers (well the advertised prices on their sites at least). I'm told they're going...

    This 58 Jr all it should be?

    Hi all. Jr on Ebay. Been looking at this '58.... seems clean, really clean - little no fade and looks as good as a new 'un.... Anyone know the Ebayer or the guitar? Everything looks as it should be to me, but don't recall seeing a 6-digit serial on a 58 personally, but far from an expert...

    Pulled my 58 Jr P90 apart

    Hi guys Poking around this 58 I've been advertising (though pulled the Ebay auction for the time being) to make sure it's 100% (aside from the issues I'm aware of and was informed of before buying). I must admit, received it from such a trusted source that I didn't pull it to bits when I got...

    Shrinkage/deterioration on Jr 'guard?

    Hi all Have been thinking of selling my 58 Jr recently, put it up on Ebay a few days ago. A guy came and took a look this evening, really nice fella who obviously knows a lot of good stuff. He really liked the 58 but the thing which made him cautious was the pickguard. It's an early '58...

    Another Jr (59) in the house! :)

    Hi All A few weeks back I had the pleasure of writing THIS thread, a 58 Jr arriving with me. I had to giggle at Wonkka's comment of 'probably won't be your last' as I had already been looking at a sweet 59 when I bought the 58. So, my great pleasure once again, a 59 LP Jr in my lap, all...

    My first old one - 58 LP Jr

    Hi All Took delivery recently of my first old Gibson, a 58 LP Junior. What a treat this guitar is! Way more versatility than I expected, lots of varied tone to be had from the volume and tone pots. Overall just a special guitar which I've quickly fallen in love with. Sweet! :jim Q.
