    1964 Gibson Firebird I think its Legit but want opinions

    Looks cool to me! Brutal soldering. Can't see a pot code, but the one 6 could mean 66, unless there are 3 numerals after it. It could be shipped in that case, but the seller would have to really understand y how to wrap the neck by the cradle to keep the end of the headstock from bottoming out.

    NGD - Custom Shop Non Reverse Firebird with 3 P-90's!

    I had been stalking one just like that in the Philly 'burbs...is that the one? I LOVE mine...it's my #1. I've grown accustomed to the pickup placement. The slider switch is fiddley...toggle is probably a good move. What is the switching like? The selections were the only thing I couldn't live...

    Bridge slant mod for Epiphone Casino (lefty conversion)

    Nope. Some folks did this because they thought it gave more support to the studs. Others jammed the 2 together so they wouldn't lose their adjustment during string changing; but they didn't come from the factory like that. There is a block under the studs, they're not supported solely by the top.

    South Florida weather forecast: Possible falling iguanas

    Don't take one in the house. They thaw and wake up...in a bad mood.

    Early 65 SG Special question

    Looks very minty. If that's what you like, I think it's too dollar, but not way over the top. If you're going to play it, I would buy a less minty one. I put these in about the same league as non-reverse Firebirds. There is one of those on my local CL for months, asking 4k.

    Hey...he's PAUL BLOODY McCARTNEY...if he wants his bridge moved with no sign of it, he gets it! Actually...the shift might be so slight that the plugged holes are under the thumbwheels.

    It's a guy who recently stumbled on an old basket case and doesn't want to try to resurrect it. His asking price has quickly dropped from 2500 to 1800.

    One has a very low reading...3.something ohms. Clearly there are questions and issues. I just don't know enough to take a chance on them...yet. What do you think? https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1HIc_DcWMXHliyeD1HKdblmhGDL2aQmXk

    NGD- Epi LP Special 1 P90, TV yellow

    Mine has been my stage backup, festival gig #1 (we always seem to be leaving our gear unattended in piles at these things), home noodler, Blues jammer, throw it in the trunk, pop the neck off and pack it in a suitcase...plays great, sounds great, tastes great, less filling... And it looks great...
