    Can You Intonate an Improperly Located Bridge?

    On an LP copy with a Tune-O-Matic bridge, the scale from bottom of nut to middle of the bridge is: 25 inches (for the sake of argument). Mid-point is 12.5 inches. (This is where the 12th fret SHOULD be.) But on this guitar, 12.5 inches from the bottom of the nut comes to just beyond the 12th...

    1994 Classic Birdseye Bridge Oddity

    Has anyone ever seen this before? An Epiphone Les Paul with a Gibson-style bridge? I bought this new in '95 from an online store, so I don't see as how anyone could or would have modified the bridge. Just wondering.

    A Custom's Volume & Tone Nuts & Washers

    On a "black beauty" with gold everything, are the factory original nuts and washers nickel or gold plated? Please don't tell me how it makes no difference or how trivial this is; I just want to know the answer to the question.

    Guess which one is authentic

    For me, my guitars are an investment in my pleasure, not their monetary value.

    Guess which one is authentic

    I was trying to show how obviously crappy the Chibson cover is, that it's not even close.

    Guess which one is authentic

    No, I posted a few years back with a question about my then first Les Paul. Got a lot of snarky responses and swore I would never post again. Glad to see I was wrong.

    One is Gibson, one is Chibson. Which is which?
