    Relic: 1990 Gibson LP Standard

    Thanks! Lacquer remove from the part of the body and the neck were the owner's request. Could you help me and post here few pics of authentic (or well done relic) of the neck aging (the one without lacquer)?

    Relic: 1990 Gibson LP Standard

    A friend of mine asked me to relic his 1990 LP Standard. The guitar already has numerous of dings, dents, etc. He sent me a photo of some R9 Aged back as an inspiration. So far, I've used the temperature difference (hot/cold) method to make weather checkings but I've never been 100% satisfied...

    New facts about the beginning of 9 holes Traditional Weight Relief

    I do x-rays at a nearby vet - and I do not have any pets. Just went there one day, I explained what was going on and there was no problem. Dentists also have x-rays machines. If someone manages to take an x-ray of his LP, let them publish it with: - a clear picture of #sn - and model and year...

    New facts about the beginning of 9 holes Traditional Weight Relief

    Just to make it clear: in general Gibson LPs history, the channel profile (round or rectangular) and its size, does not specify the structure of the body. We know that, right? Based on my fresh x-ray pictures I'm just wondering, if there is a chance that the 9 holes Weight Relief was introduced...

    New facts about the beginning of 9 holes Traditional Weight Relief

    I focus only on Gibson LP (over 60), but also few ES, some Orville by Gibson, broken headstocks and stuff like that. Most of them were mine, but a dozen I got from volunteers. In Poland, I run a Gibson fan page, so it's much easier for me to get to some guitars - but the year 1982, 1983 and 1984...

    New facts about the beginning of 9 holes Traditional Weight Relief

    Could you post here x-rayed picture of 1982 or 1983 Gibson necessarily with proof in the form of picture of #sn? People often confuse the date of production.

    New facts about the beginning of 9 holes Traditional Weight Relief

    At the beginning, I would like to ask anyone who is going to write a comment below in the style of "If it sound good, who cares about 9 holes" – please don’t. Just jump to another topic, because this one is not dedicated for you. Thanks :) For several years, I've been trying to determine the...
