What year in the 90s?
I have a 1996 Classic Premium Plus and the frets are nothing like this. I had Dan Erlewine do some maintenance on it back in the early 2000's, but I don't think he had to do much to it.
I have my doubts about the owner saying this is how it came stock. I'd say it's been...
Never seen BB1 or BB2 with a Gibson USA baseplate before. They used to have the blank baseplates with PAF stickers. But who knows, times change, Gibson changes specs when they feel like it.
The caps in the control cavity are obvious replacements, so who knows what else was done.
First you should know the specs, and then, are they what you are looking for?
Neck material is 1 piece mahogany.
Pickups would be 490R/498T if stock. Is this what you like?
Doing your research ahead of time will prevent mistakes.
If you are going there, then consider Charvels and Jacksons as well. Jackson PROs were so good that Jackson started downgrading the specs (like no more ebony) to force people to buy USA models.
Oh, and none of my Gibsons will stay in tune anywhere near as well as my maple neck guitars. I think...
I have a very worn 1977 LP Custom.
I wanted it because I wanted a maple neck LP.
The neck profile is great to me (I like slim necks).
The frets are original, playable, but jumbos would be so much nicer.
It is pretty heavy at 10lbs 12 oz.
The tone is to die for. I am a metal player, but with...
Sorry to wake up a 5 year old thread but...
Which of the above methods have had actual success?
I have a 1963 SG that was resprayed back in 2004. I hardly play it at all - is sits in a Historic case. I just noticed it is cloudy, pretty much all over the body. This was not done by sweaty...
I bought a 1977 LP Custom from HI. The pots were frozen and the jack needed TLC from the humidity. I was able to De-Ox and clean everything up.
I'd say to either use the knobs and jacks a lot of get some electronic lube and cleaner. De-Oxit is one of the best brands for this stuff.
I saw this today on CL as well. Let us know what you think if you go to see it.
The price might be OK if you really want it. It is a 1993 the ad said. I don't think it is highway robbery.
The tailpiece is a Gibson TP-6. They made them for a few years only. You could replace it with a regular...
