    Beck's music never did anything for me anyway. Beautiful player just not for me.

    The Case of the Stolen '59 Les Paul...

    I believe that the stolen burst was photographed for beauty of the burst. Thats about all I know. Same for Beano, they are in private collectors hands and other private collectors know whose hands. I do know that there was a tale from a member here where during the 70's/80's a guitar dealer...

    Most Vintage-Correct Nitro lacquer available in the UK?

    Hey Folks, Quickie, what do you folks reckon is the best bet for a vintage-style nitro that will age and check and all the good stuff that is available in the UK? Please no rattle cans, I want to mix my own colours and UV darken it etc. Cheers!

    Welp.

    I am very much a proponent of playing wear and tear, it looks great when you have chips and nicks but when the rest of the guitar is mint and there is just a great chunk out of the top... nah I want it fixed! Another potential problem for me redoing it is I have a small inkling it has gone down...

    Welp.

    Hahaha, lots of people ask that, I believe the warehouse is still there but in danger of being demolished at the moment. My uncle used to work there in the 50's so lots of history there! As for the guitar, I don't even know if its worth getting the insurance sorted for the price of a dent...

    Welp.

    Welp. It finally happened. I finally took a chunk out of one of my guitars... the one time I decided not to put my favourite acoustic straight back in the case, my laptop slides off the bed and whack! Straight into the spruce top. FUCK! Good news, I literally insured it YESTERDAY! Not so good...

    54 Goldtop Serial Help

    So an opportunity to buy an advertised "genuine" 54 Goldtop has arisen, which would be my first "vintage" Gibson, and in looking up the serial number online it could be from 53-54 as advertised or from the 90s as a reissue. Guy says his uncle bought it in the 80s-90s, the headstock looks worn as...

    I won't lie, it fulfills a lifelong dream as well, but it does genuinely serve an academic purpose! I have actually sorted something out so thank you all for your replies and help!

    Help Wanted.

    Hello, so basically I am writing an essay for my design course at Bournemouth University about guitar design- particulary the burst and what it is that makes it quite so special- was it clever design or by accident? Do they command such a high price because they are the "modern Stradivarius" or...

    1959 Les Paul on eBay UK - anyone familiar with this example?

    1959 Les Paul on eBay UK - anyone familiar with this example?

    Funnily enough I just saw this, and was about to make a post here. Lots about this guitar screams wrong to me. The fact he is trying to flog £300,000 worth of guitar on Ebay is pretty high on the list...
