    Random internet guy playing a 1960 DC Special.

    Here is a clip of me playing my only vintage Gibson, a 1960 DC Special. On a certain fret it really sings. Is that the "Bloom" everyone is talking about When it comes to vintage Gibsons? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjnzI8GoBzQ

    SG 61 RI or The VOS one?

    What are the main differences between the two models? I have just started to look at SG's and even if the VOS looks cooler, I can't seem to get over the quite large difference in price. I got a Burny SG a year ago that fueled the GAS for a Gibson too.

    Funny looking Special

    This Special is advertised as a refinished '60. But the toggle placement is like on the first DC's isn't it? The pickguard looks different than from a '60, and '58-59's too for that matter. Just thought it was interesting.

    My new favourite Les Paul player: Doug Aldrich!

    I was at Sweden Rock Festival this weekend (Swedens largest music festival with 33000 sold tickets). One of the bands was Whitesnake and I really liked Dougs playing. Reb Beach was good to but he played Suhrs so he belongs in another forum. :) Doug did most of the soloing, sure, lots of...

    Has anyone heard of "Vintage clone parts"?

    I was looking for a nice LP case and found something called " Vintage Clone Parts". Apparently made in the US: http://www.allpartsjapan.com/products/vintageclone/vintageclone02.html They have lots of cool LP parts.

    Non original parts...

    My 1960 Special misses the following parts: a tailpiece, the pickguard and the truss rod cover. Now, how much does that affect the value of the whole guitar? Let's say that the parts would cost a 1000 USD. Is the guitar worth 1000 USD less than a guitar in similar condition (NOT mint but no...

    Help me with this '57 Junior, please!

    I found a 1957 LP Jr for sale, and it has a few small "issues". Tuners have been replaced and now a set of period correct ones have been reinstalled but with new plastic tips. The pots are new. And then there are four holes behind the tailpiece, not from a vibrato, it looks more like someone...

    Heavy strings!

    I use 11's on all my guitars. On my Fender type guitars they are great but on my Gibsons they feel like 9's or something. Those of you that are using heavier strings, what gauge have you settled on? Thanks JJ

    Junior --> Special conversion??

    This "Special" guitar is sold but it could be a fun discussion. It has several Junior traces. Screw holes from a dogear cover, hacked up neck pickup cavity, filled holes lining up quite perfectly for a Juniors volume and tone knobs. Whaddyathink? :) And more pix here
