    Gibson Led Paul KM 1979

    Yes, there has been lots of mods to this one (maybe even refined. Hard to tell from photos)- and it is a bit overpriced. On the other hand these guitars are great, and this one´s more of a players grade than a collectors item - so if you like it, it may be a keeper. But, if you buy it to sell it...

    Does the Ibanez Artist have a Les Paul tone?

    I don´t think my Artist (´78 - 2619) sounds like a les paul, it´s great in its own way - but no les paul in my ears.

    Vintage Ibanez ARTIST- The BEST Other Guitar Design Ever made?

    Here´s my 1978 Ibanez Artist 2619 - I don´t think it´s soundwise comparable with older Les Pauls, but it has got a thing of its own. Really "classy-feel" and its a great guitar in many ways. It´s a bit heavy, but I kind of prefer that instead of too lightweight guitars. Designwise? well, it IS...

    72 Custom side dots

    Might be refretted and because of that, the original binding was lost/destructed and new, not original binding/dots was received.

    NGD: My Guild Starfire IV ST Arrived Early!!!

    Seeing your guitar brings me down memory lane. I had a red Starfire (´65) in the late seventies. Cant remember what thickness of neck it had, but it rocked well and had this woody tone. Wish I had it now, sold it for a months rent back in the day. Someone made a good business deal, and it wasnt me.

    Maybe a philosophical question

    I dont get along well with newer Les Pauls. At least so far. I have tried a few and I didnt like them. In my teens Gibsons were way too expensive for me, so I played other brands. But I remembered once in the local music shop in ´74 - when the owner let me play a Deluxe and it was something...

    Les Paul Bass

    If you consider a Thunderbird, they also came in a short scale version (2011).

    A Devil In Disguise

    This is a 1998 Ibanez Jem555. Original it was black. It was stripped to partly "naturalish" by former owner. The guitar felt good in my hands at start, but - it didnt suit me so well soundwise - it did not marry well with a marshall amp in my ears. It was too "nice". I am sure the original pups...

    Les paul identification help!

    Yes. Its an S.M. These came out in 1980 and you dont see them very often. The ones I´ve seen before this one all had a TP-6 tailpiece, but they might have come with this one aswell (or somebody has changed it) Maple neck, dot inlays on the fretboard, belly carve on the back, and no binding at...

    NGD - 1st Vintage Ibanez !!

    There are a few dings and scratches that doesnt show so well in the photos, but overall - yes, she´s in very good shape for a 38 year old. I have only had her for the last three och four years. It is the kind of guitar its easy to hang on to.

    NGD - 1st Vintage Ibanez !!

    Here´s my 1978 Ibanez Artist 2619 I really like this one, sounds and plays great. I do not think it is comparable with a Gibson Les Paul though - otherwise than you can feel its a really "classy" guitar. It is a different thing soundwise.
