    Unpopular Opinions

    Beauty!!! Is it in a Les Paul case? If so, fold up a small hand towel and stick it in case at butt end under the body. It’ll raise the ass end enough to bring the headstock down and resting against the support. Otherwise the case lid pushes down on headstock, raising ass end of guitar and...

    Best year for 59 reissues over the last ~10+ years??

    Gibson hardcases, Lifton vs TKL

    My VOS R9 is slowly turning glossy

    Gold script coming off?

    How does that work? The Gibson method is to silk screen using a “silk screen” on a frame and running gold paint through it How do you buy that and extras?
