I'm sure we could work something out..sure would be a nice touch on that pretty Standard of yours!
The ones on the far left:
Cool...now, get those knobs!
Here's mine. Secret stuff... '50s trussrod cover, speed knobs, switch tip, brass saddles from a '50s 345. Strap buttons from a '50s 335. Sheptone pickups
As someone above mentioned, any guesses how many of these were made? 100? 1000? I know I haven't seen but one in person and it was in Tokyo.
no way to know how many, but I have personally seen more than Gibson said were produced.
SG, What is the serial number on yours?
Date on the pots??
In the works.
I agree, looks a lot like mine (before some a**hole drilled holes in the top!)
what is the serial number on yours?
Serial number on mine is 121289... anyone close?
Mine's a real early '74 (a couple pots are from late '73, even), and the serial is 110643.
Here's mine! Bridge is not original (as you will notice) and of course the filled mini switches, but I love the top with the subtle flames. Plays smooth, bridge pickup is amazing. Neck pickup is too dark but I think a more vintage correct bridge will perhaps sort that out. Regarding the bridge, I will also post in another thread but perhaps any of you know this. This 74 standard has bushings installed for the bridge (unfortunately). As far as I know the 74's only came with ABR with studs directly in the maple cap - stupid question perhaps, but did Gibson ever mount ABR's with bushings?
No they did not.
Another photo of my Lester, this time with my two-headed cat. This guitar spent a good deal of its life in honky tonks and biker bars. Still pretty clean for its life of musical mayhem...
it has been "Aced"...I love that look.
