    Nitro smell?

    I concur that it's unusual. I've sprayed nitro, shellac, and plenty of other paints myself and have never experienced anything like this. I did have an issue once with Deft lacquer that refused to fully harden, but that was a whole other situation. I don't know about the original posters...

    '59 Les Paul Jr or is it?

    I'm not sure how my comments make your case, but if it makes you feel better... At the end of the day you are free to continue to pass on items based upon crappy images, and I'll continue to inquire on them until I'm satisfied to either buy or pass. But please don't assume to know what I...

    Nitro smell?

    Going to disagree about it being the case. I have a GC exclusive pelham blue les paul special humbucker (say that 10x fast) Anyhow its a June 2019 build, purchased in Feb 2020, and the off-gassing from the lacquer was awful. 6 months after purchase it was still noticeable. It's pretty much...

    '59 Les Paul Jr or is it?

    Does the asking price of an item negate the validity of my comment? You've indicated that you're willing to dismiss an item solely on the basis of "out of focus and badly composed images" I indicated that I'm not so quick to do so, and as a result, have gotten some deals over the years. As...

    '59 Les Paul Jr or is it?

    You have no idea how tempting that is. My wife on the other hand might have a different opinion.

    '59 Les Paul Jr or is it?

    I've gotten some great deals over the years by taking chances on sellers with less than stellar photos. :cool2:

    '59 Les Paul Jr or is it?

    That shop always has the worst pictures and as the saying goes. A little bit of knowledge... I've seen them completely misidentify stuff that is easily researchable. I don't know if it's a matter of them trying to hide something, not knowing what they have, or just being jaded from too many...

    '59 Les Paul Jr or is it?

    Thanks Dave!! I noticed every one of the things you've pointed out, but didn't want to openly point to them and sway anyone's opinion one way or another. I also noticed the truss rod cover is rounded over in the bottom corners. Which IMO looks way to uniform to not be it's original shape. The...

    What is the value of case candy?

    Personally, it wouldn't matter to me and I wouldn't expect a discount because of it. I base my buying decisions on whether or not it ticks the playability, sound, and lastly appearance boxes. Case candy is inconsequential to me, but I respect that others feel differently.

    '59 Les Paul Jr or is it?

    Came across this Les Paul Junior on Ebay that is purported to be a '59, but it's got my spidey sense tingling. There are a number of things that are clearly not correct, however there are things that lead me to believe it might be a refin. with changed out parts. Two things that really stand...

    What is the value of case candy?

    I'm not doubting there is value to having the case candy. Just saying... No way it would add 1k in value to me personally. Others may feel different and that's ok. :)

    What is the value of case candy?

    IMO anyone that attaches that much value to a COA and fancy switch cover, plainly falls into the collector vs player category. While nice to have as part of the package. I stand by my previously comments that it adds absolutely nothing to the sound or playability of an instrument.

    Incoming NGD r6 gamble

    Excellent deal for a beautiful guitar!! IMO - it's everything you could ask for in an R6. Lightweight, dark fretboard, great color, TH plastics. Just need to add some Luxe PIO caps and done.

    What is the value of case candy?

    I think it's really a matter of personal preference. I have some guitars with paperwork and some without, but I've never let the lack of said paperwork stop me from buying. I get the whole psychological aspect of it being there, but whether it's a Custom Shop, USA or an Import model, the...

    1958 Les Paul Special at Goodwill

    I agree, arguing about market value is pointless, however in this example, it can be argued that without confirmation of what is or is not original does greatly influence peoples perception of value. In reality the only thing guaranteed by winning the Goodwill auction at hand was receiving a...

    Local SG dates to 56?

    Look to me like an early 70's SG 2 or SG pro that's been modified. Possible refinish. Didn't Gibson only do the embossed covers for a few years? Might help narrow it down.
