    5 latch Lifton case latch locked and no key (Help)

    The latch on my old Lifton case locked by itself. It’s always been unlocked but the other day it just locked (crazy I know) Fortunately it’s in the down position, so I can still use it. Any ideas how to get it unlocked with out a key? Thanks in advance!

    '58 - '63 Explorer Question

    My favorite vintage Gibson guitars are the '58 - '63 Explorers! I've seen a few with the round cover over the toggle switch on the back and curious why some had this, I assume they used a standard Switchcraft toggle such as were fitted to Les Paul's not the 90 degree style.... I've noticed...

    My '65 JTM45 just exploded! (pictures included)

    I'd been playing it for half an hour and was quitting for the night. I left it on for a few minutes then heard a loud pop and a huge puff of smoke (Like Keith Moons drums exploding on The Smuthers Brothers Show) along with a nasty smell, Wow!
