    Selling in the Member Classifieds - Brand New Members, Zero Posts

    I've had 2 different guitars for sale in the member classifieds and had two different members (or not), with zero posts, inquire about the guitars immediately after opening their accounts. Strikes me as fishy at best. Anyone else experiencing this?

    My Historic Makeover

    My guitar is hanging out at Historic Makeovers with Gary C's guitar so I figure it's time I started a thread. I've posted a few threads trying to decide what color(s) to go with on my 1999 R7 Goldtop. My intention was to redo the metallic yellow "goldtop" in the vintage correct gold, but I...

    Finish Crack...or worse?

    Greetings all. Pulled my 2000 LP Classic out and noticed a crack in the cutaway that runs along the seam of the maple top and mahogany back. It runs the entire length of the cutaway, but is worse nearest the neck joint. I'm trying to determine if this is a finish crack or delamination between...

    Cracking around Headstock Inlay - Repair?

    I own a 2000 LP Classic that I like very much. The Gibson headstock inlay has that all too common finish cracking all around the perimiter. It's starting to bother me so I'm thinking I might repair it. Anyone repaired one of these? How was it done? Wondering if I could flood it with thin CA...

    What's Your Fav Solid Color for LP?

    I have an Edwards LP I like very much (except for the thick plasticky poly finish). I'm considering having it refinished in nitro and the painter was concerned the quilt maple veneer could be damaged during stripping, in which case I would go to plan B and have the guitar painted a solid color...
