    Anyone ever figured out how to deal with ES335s with the notorious delaminating ply issue?

    I’ve never seen this before…. I don’t suppose you have a picture or 2 on this? (I have built a few guitars and do my own repairs etc, I have an es335 dot and you’ve peaked my interest)

    1st Gibson, irresponsible not to buy this Les Paul Studio, player grade

    yeah that white is not going to age the same... it would bug the hell out of me! I'd strip it and repaint white... its rare to find a guitar that speaks - and this one apparently speaks volumes... put some effort it and not only will you be ok with it (assuming you know what you are doing) but...

    The Fake Epiphone Thread II

    Looks good to me: I bought a honey burst exactly like this one back in 2008, mines super heavy so it lives in its case these days. This one has the correct serial font - Epi logo, correct tuners and plastics etc. the tailpiece should be the typical Epi stay on tailpiece and bridge. cavity...

    Procol Harum/Gary Moore 50's Les Paul - where is it now?

    Seems like a dead thread - and I just read why, this guitar was stolen from Gary in 1970 sometime, after which he used a 67/8 SG special that he had... Blooming' thieves!

    Procol Harum/Gary Moore 50's Les Paul - where is it now?

    Turns out the vid I attached was 1970 - however looking at the guitar in a lot of the the 1968-70 Procol Harum vids on You-Tube the guitar was that odd red colour from the start of Rob T's ownership - but it had assorted pickups, it almost looks as if he left the pickup rings off so he could...

    Just ordered: Epiphone JJN Gold Glory - I think these are rad

    Very nice guitar you've scored there! I have to say Epiphone have really nailed it with the Headstock design changes. I can really see Gibson sales taking a hit. I for one would be more inclined to buy a guitar like this than a Gibson custom, very cool looking guitar at a decent price!

    Are the tops of Epiphone LP Customs still a decal?

    I've heard this before but have to agree with the others here that, although paint can be on the binding making it appear as though its a sticker, I've found the flame on my Epi Standard from 2007 is a really nice 3D veneer - you wouldnt think it was a veneer but it is... and yes does have...
