    Anyone else carry pencils in their pockets?

    Ouch ... Get well soon! :sadwave: :photos: oh sorry, that was the wrong smiley .... What do we learn - Don't carry sharp items in your pockets, dont't leave clothes lying around. Next time you'll step on a sock and slip ..... sometimes it's right to give attention to what our moms used to say...

    Les Paul Body Thickness - Which are thicker than the Standard?

    I found out that there are numerous threads about thickness issues - way too many in fact. But I didn't find one that answers my questions. I also know that LP Studios are thinner than LP Standards. But I found photos that suggest that certain LPs are even thicker than a standard - for...

    More New "Les Paul's" for 2018 from the CS

    But no golden strings - another case of Gibson not going the whole way Read the description? The "nice" red guitar doesn't try to cater to us .... but it is amazing how low so-called music "journalists" can sink.

    Any Epiphone G-400 makeovers done?

    Motivation? I? supply? sorry, not in this case. :hmm: As you may already know, removing the PU covering of an Epiphone is quite a task. Some might even describe it as a major pain in the ass. :naughty: If you find mahogany veneer under the paint (which is sure for newer epis), saving it while...

    Epi. Les Paul Tribute Plus question.

    Well, I would want to see what PUs are in that guitar. Even if Gibson 57s were made in Zebra, would they show up in a Tribute Plus?
