    It's a really good deal with those upgrades.

    "MIJ" Bargain of the day!

    You'd be better off with a nice 500 model Super Power or a Mint Collection model. It will probably be a better guitar and cost you less.

    Remember too if you buy on the auctions from Japan you have the proxy fees, PP fees plus another $125 or so to ship it home. Then in that price range it's going to need something. Everything I bring home that cost under $400 not including the proxy fees or shipping, needs fret work to varying...

    Removed my pick guard today and what did I find?

    You have to be brave to take them off. Sometimes you find 40 years of sweat and dust bunnies.

    NGD - Gretsch G5622T

    I changed the spring on the Bigsby to one of the Reverend softer springs. You might want to try that mod too.

    Greco truss 5mm nut needed. Mine is almost stripped out.

    From looking at the pic this is not the acorn shaped nut like the later MIJ and Gibson use? Those I know how to source. Both Hosco and Montreaux made them. They are 8mm on the outside and 5mm threaded onto the truss rod. I haven't found any for sale in the US but they can be ordered from...

    Those of You Who Think That Epiphones is Almost as Good as Gibsons

    A good guitar that speaks to you is a good guitar. It doesn't matter what it says on the headstock. Now I had a poor experience with my only Epi, but that was 20 years ago and not even the same factory. I should probably get over it and try some of the new ones. Especially since I'm usually...

    Purpose of the tribute model line?

    Sure, it's a low cost way to get a US made Gibson Les Paul. I have a few old guitars with maple necks and I like them just fine. The thin finish does wear quickly but then again I think it lets the tone of the wood maybe come through a little more and it feels nice. The necks in particular are...

    The Grote 335s are supposed to be pretty similar and the price is about the same. It's tempting to get one to check out :) I like the cherry with the block inlays.

    NGD FGN!

    Oh, I'm sure they are :) It's just a matter of time before the right FGN comes along and I get one of them as well. Your new semi-hollow is amazing!

    NGD FGN!

    I still haven't gotten an FGN but I'm now up to 3 Historys! That is one gorgeous guitar you got there! I love that top!
