    Bought this 78/79 les paul custom. I opened the back expecting to see some dated pots but these are just labeled “gibson”. Are these replacements? Also it has grover tuners that look very factory but they might have had some holes filled at some point. i have searched this board and other...

    Dealers that will price match or beat prices

    I have been selling off most of my less expensive guitars to free up some room and money. I want to buy a nice LP. I looked at the 58/59 reissues and there are so many fakes that I think I would feel more comfortable buying a brand new LP. There is a black LPC at zzsounds for $3,999. AMS seems...

    I am thinking that I am going to sell my srv strat and Washburn ec29 to fund the purchase of a fairly nice les paul. That should put my budget at around $2000. Ideally I would like to buy something that will appreciate in value. There is a black standard at guitar center on sale for about...

    Which amp to keep vox ad120vt or deluxe reverb reissue

    Local pawn shop was making deals yesterday and I picked up a vox ad120vt and a fender deluxe reverb reissue. Both are in good shape and neither have foot pedals. Pros for the vox - lots of stuff built in (tuner, effects, etc) - big and loud .. 2 12s vox cons - no tubes - somewhat...
