    NDGD (New Damaged Guitar Day) - Return or Keep with Discount?

    oh jeez.....much ado about nothing if you ask me. If people want to return new guitars becuz of cracks like this I don't blame them. But virtually every painted Gibson gets these at some point in their life. Look an an LPC that is years old. Those type finish cracks will be all up and don the...

    Anybody who has ordered from Japan. Customs Question

    Seriously? You can't find the contact seller option? Or try the email address your paypal payment went to? None of this is hidden. You are definitely not good at ebay.

    Is this a vintage Gibson bridge??

    Not an expert but the vinyl saddles alone put it at a late 60s early 70s bridge. Not the motherload but worth something maybe

    Help identifying an odd flame top Norlin

    that they idea of someone making a fake Gibson back then is sort of silly. With a totally perfect Gibson serial number to boot...just make no sense...but nevermind that.

    USPS won't pay my insurance claim

    in my experience if it shows as delivered then it was delivered and YOU are off the hook. For all you know he is making stuff up. Used to be you could contact a few of the buyers former business partners and ask if they had a similar problem (ebay has "fixed" this problem I think)...

    any of you folks wear contact lenses?

    I have worn contact for 40 years. I can take then in and out in seconds. Never used a mirror. Here is my advice: Don't use a mirror. Make sure your eyes are dry and as wide open as you can get them. Make sure the fingers holding the contact are dry. Otherwise it will stick to your fingers...

    How to tell the difference between classic and reissue

    What do you think an Xray would reveal? Been a while since I boned up on this but a "prehistoric" reissue from that time and a classic are often exact same guitar. They were built with the same woods, same line, same people etc but the nicer tops got the Reissue designation and different...

    Why can't I sell on Reverb anymore?

    Fact is the market for guitars has crashed. Nobody wants to pay for anything. I am all but out of business after 10 years of dominating ebay. Things I have left are priced way less than they would have sold for in minutes a few years ago. And it only seems to get worse.
