    I wish my Les Paul wasn't so perfect...

    sorry this is the best analogy I can come up with. Imagine that you are dating or married to a supermodel she's absolutely perfect she's gorgeous most beautiful body received in your life but you can't bring yourself to have sex with her because you're afraid you'll get her messy! Wouldn't that...

    '64 SG Jr. horror show restoration goodness. opinions welcome. pic heavy.

    Got to agree using a wood dowel probably would make it a much stronger joint and if it becomes a problem I would redo it that way but right on man the beautiful instrument I would just play the crap out of it! JUNIORS ARE JUST FREAKING AWESOME!! Like a Esquire with testicles! I mean that was...

    Goldtop popped up locally: is this authentic?

    all the comments above seem valid but Gibson has made an awful lot of guitars and some do look substantially better than others I would want to look at the cavities and you got to look at the back if you have the headstock and all that like every one of them said but the bottom line is if you...

    Sticker switch cavity R9

    Maybe they had special incarnations read over them and now have the power to bewitch the listener. And steal the players soul.... or it could mean something else.

    NGD - 2020 Standard '60s Iced Tea

    While I agree with a brand new guitar it's certainly shouldn't come with those kind of marks on the fretboard it should be perfect. However if you like the way that guitar looks it's not too heavy and you enjoy the way it plays and it's a good sounding guitar. I would consider the marks parts...

    In 2014 after years of looking online at Guitar I was finally in a position to spend a lot of money and get myself up Custom Shop historic R9. I went to remove music in Tucson which had a bunch of them and it seemed as though they kept them all in the back room and cases so that wankers couldn't...

    Vintage 1956 Les Paul Special...well loved

    The couple of vintage 57 juniors I've played did have small frets but still were amazing and eye opening. Medium jumbo fretts would be nice maybe someday I'll be able to get a players grade. It would probably become my number one.
