    The latest in my search for a Gibson custom shop

    Probably just down to different guitars sounding different. But when one gets under your skin somehow, best to snap it up if at all possible. Or else it becomes the one that got away.

    The latest in my search for a Gibson custom shop

    The brighter, more brittle sound of the historics is really mostly the custom buckers compared to the Burstbuckers in your 50’s. They’re going for a vintage kinda tone, which the Burstbuckers have never really had. This is just a preference. If you put Burstbuckers in a historic they will sound...

    ‘17 Tribute

    Pic not great but it appears to be a very nice top for a Tribute and the price seems right … looks like a nice deal to me

    sourcing pickups

    You can get a set of Wolfetones on their 25 percent off sale for just a bit more than 200 ... fantastic pickups, great reputation, no brainer.

    Seems to me that a connection to one guitar over another isn’t really empirical at all. How does each one make you feel when you play it?

    Gibson now selling Custombuckers aftermarket

    $638 for a pair? I like custombuckers but that seems ridiculous. But people will probably buy them. I won’t be one of those people.

    Could you good people check for me this 2004 Standard?

    Yes, desert burst is a rim burst with a black back and a more orange-ish hue … that is more amber, and a tear drop burst, does look like tea burst. Nice looking Les Paul.
