    Got a les Paul custom from my uncle and the serial number is scratched off??

    That's a cool guitar and certainly not a 'dime a dozen' as stated two posts earlier. Hope it suits you / matches your needs. Welcome to the forum. Nice to have more female members. Aldo Kirk Hammett is your uncle? Schweet! The first five Metallica albums are hammered into my brain. As a...

    I disliked the change to an aluminium TP. Changed it back to the zinc TP.

    1976 Les Paul Custom no neck relief...

    I think there's a video of Dan Erlewine fixing this issue by using a jig and applying pressure. It's part of one of his dvd sets.

    1975 Bridge Replacement, advice please!

    I think Gibson used Schaller made Nashville bridges into the 1980's. Those should fit. In my experience, a new and/or properly slotted nut should make it possible to use a Faber abr bridge.

    R&D phase of Nashville to ABR-1 conversion commences!

    On my 81 Custom they pressed in with room (i.e. depth) to spare. Others have had to dril a few extra millimeters, or the iNserts won't sit flush with the top. Simply measure first.

    1952 Gibson LP Gold Top - To Restore or To Convert?

    Oleynior, how's this video for inspiration? 52 GT with abr and stop tailpiece.... And lots of finish wear....

    R&D phase of Nashville to ABR-1 conversion commences!

    My vote goes to Faber as well. Very happy with their locking abr + iNserts Please also get the iNserts, these replacement for Nashville bushings are a no-brainer. https://www.mylespaul.com/threads/review-faber-insert.284069/

    new vs. used (and value)

    Get an unsold new one from 2015. There must be heaps. Not bad guitars mind you. Just replace the robo-tuners with normal ones.

    Mid and late 90's LP Customs with 80's Logo

    The binding on the white supposedly 98 seems rounded... refin?

    Possible trade deal - waddaya think?

    All other things being equal, I would think a HB LP Standard draws a larger group of potential buyers than mini-Hb/P90 LP Deluxe. How that translates to a difference in value/price between the two - not sure. I think the Standard is worth more and will be worth more.

    Dave Amato collection (video)

    Gibson is posting new videos on its YT channel. This video is just too cool. Good vibes and such cool guitars, both Gibson and other brands. Also nice to see Mark Agnesi back in form.
