    Question: Does it HAVE to be a Gibson ES guitar, or can I post a picture of a non-Gibson ES-style guitar I have? (It's an Ibanez.)

    Sorry for the delay. Had to charge my camera battery.

    It's an Ibanez AFS75T Artcore with the electronics changed (by me). CTS 500K 20% audio taper pots, Sprague-Orange drop .022 caps, new Switchcraft mono jack, and a Switchcraft 3-way short switch. Stock pickups.

    Weird how that ES says "IBANEZ" on the headstock. Must be a rare model.:cool:

    Hey douche, you obviously don't read intervening posts in the thread, so nothing you say has any merit.

    Here is another shot of Gil's old store --the Es section.You will see 3 stoptail ES-355's including Buddy Guy's 60's blond Es-355 stoptail{ i am pretty sure the blond one was his}.Some very cool and hard to find ES's in this shot.Thanks Mike B.

    Nice. Did you read that word off the squeeze bottle you shot in your vagina this morning? :laugh2: In case you didn't notice, Einstein, this thread is in the "Other Gibsons" subcategory of the Gibson Les Paul Forum. Just because one person said it was "cool by me" to post your crappy (non Gibson) guitar , it doesn't mean it's cool with all forum members. It's called etiquette. Why you would post a picture of a vastly inferior design is beyond me but whatever. By the way I own an Ibanez ES style ArtCore and it's ok, a decent value for the money, but can't hold a candle to a real Gibson ES. I read all of the posts before mine. I was simply poking fun but the gloves are off now. I've had a rough week. I live in Boston. Enough said.

    p.s.
    nice Silverburt :dude:

    Thanks Shadowplayer!

    I don't polish it,just wipe it down with a cloth every now and then.
    The glass roof helped with the reflections of course!

    wow, Mike, why did you decide not to buy it? Blondes give more fun! What was he asking for it? I love the blondes even over the cherry ESes

    ah, OK, that long ago. And of course there are other priorities over buying guitars. I mean, sometimes, not often :naughty:
