    Nibs or No Nibs, which do you prefer?

    Seems like more cork sniffing to me. I’m too busy playing my guitar to give a crap about nibs. In fact, I didn’t even know what people were talking about when they mentioned nibs. The frets on my guitar are really low profile and there isn’t a single nib on it. I didn’t notice nibs until I...

    What do you play on your les?

    Well, considering the fact that my Les Paul was the only electric guitar I owned for close to 30 years... I played everything on it. I started playing in bars right out of high school in 1991 in a "little bit of everything band". We played anything that got us excited: Led Zeppelin, Ozzy...

    Did I get a "factory second" or "b-stock" without knowing?

    That mark on the neck almost looks like the same location the PLEK clamp grips the neck. It may have been clamped a little tight.

    1978 Gibson Les Paul - Creamtone Conversion

    That’s a keeper. I have a ‘79 Cherry Sunburst Standard made in Kalamazoo (but not a KM model). It sounds sublime and the only thing that sort of bothers me (like just a little bit) is the top is a 3 piece. I bought it in 1988 when I was 16 and all I saw was Jimmy Page saying “you want this...

    Did you play & inspect the guitar before buying it?

    Am I The Only One?

    If you're buying an Epiphone for this reason it's a fashion accessory. I've been playing Gibson's for over 30 years and I am not sorry to say that in those 30+ years, the quality of Epiphone guitars has never been on the level of Gibson guitars... electric or acoustic. That is why they are...

    What's The Best Sounding Les Paul You Played?

    My 79 Standard is hands down the best sounding and playing. I bought it at age 16 when it was in brand new condition in 88. At the time, I didn’t know about the stigma attached to Norlin... all I knew is that I had a Les Paul that could sing. Over the years I have played others, but they just...

    Not Another Newb?

    Yes... I am another newb. I've been browsing the forum here for a long time, I actually thought I was a member until I tried to sign in. I've been a prolific poster on other forums...years ago, but for some reason this place slipped under my radar until I started searching for some info...
