    Guitar, hard case, and case candy are all included, just as it arrived to me from Sweetwater just over a week ago. I bought the guitar from Sweetwater through my employer’s employee rewards program, that stipulated that I could only make purchases from certain vendors. I bought it to re-sell...

    Need help please. vintage PAF minihumbucker braided wire needs replacing

    Just picked up a "Seth Lover" PAF mini humbucker as used in the Silvertone 1446. It appears that the cloth covered inner wire has hardened and has disintegrated (is disintegrating). I cannot pull back the braid to exposed any useful cloth-covered wire. It just crumbles away. I have some...

    HÜ Tonelabs York Bl Gold Foil and Seth Lover/Silvertone/Harmony/Gibson Mini Humbuckers

    Does anyone have any experience with these pickups? Supposedly the first 50 set of the Gold Foil sold out an NAMM and now both types are on a “pre-order” status with a wait time of two months. I can find little information on either of these pickups from actual buyers/players.

    NGD: 1981 Greco SS500 or SS63-50 Transitional

    Picked this up from an overseas seller a little bit ago. Took a chance on it as it looked a bit beat up and language issues left some details about the guitar in question. Came with a hard case too, so that took some of the worry away pertaining to shipping. As it turns out, I think this is a...

    Greco closed "O" fat script logos from 1981 or 1982. Who's got 'em?

    The logo described in the thread title might be the rarest of them all. I'll get things rollin' with this 1982 Les Paul Junior double cut. My two cents is that there was a period of time prior to the Mint Collection open "O" that this logo was used. Maybe just on some models?

    Any owners of single cut Greco Super Real Juniors?

    Probably the rarest of all Super Reals is the Les Paul Junior. I once owned a double cut. Great guitar. I was an idiot for selling it. My guess is no one will post a pic of a single cut Super Real Junior since no one has one.

    Measure your Melody Maker neck thickness and post is here

    I thought it would be nice to have one thread with the neck thickness of different Melody Makers for comparison. So get out your calipers and measure them at the 1st and 12th frets. Please include year and type (single cut, double cut, SG)

    Melody Maker '59 Reissue "great neck" hype

    So does any neck dimension data exist for the 2007-2008 '59 Melody Maker reissue? There's a fair amount of data on the '58, '59, and '60 Les Paul sunburst necks (thanks to Beauty and the Burst), but what about this modern "reissue"? Is it really similar to the late 1950's single cut Melody Maker...

    Baseball Bat Neck 1.125" at 1st, 1.250" at 11th

    I'm looking at buying a custom build Les Paul with a super huge neck. It was made that way per the original owner's request. Unfortunately I'm about 400 miles away from it, so playing it is not in the equation. I like big necks, but the biggest I've ever played was just over 1" at the 11th fret...
