    What happened to the “read this before you buy a LP” thread?

    And the LP 101 (I think?) threads? I think @Tim Plains authored some of them.

    Have you ever bought a skuzzy?

    You know, a used guitar that arrived so dirty that you were afraid to play it without first getting a tetanus shot?! Don't get me wrong, I agree they're ‘made to be played’, but even before this age of frequent hand washing/sanitizing, there's a fine line there. Anyway, a quick afternoon spent...

    This Epiphone is kicking my butt!

    It's a ‘96 Trans Amber Les Paul. I bought a wiring upgrade kit and went with the short shaft pots as this is pretty much the standard. Of course all the holes had to be reamed out, no big deal. The short shaft pots barely clear the top, so little that I can't get a washer on them, only the nuts...

    My new invention

    I'm trying to get on ‘Shark Tank’! Preliminary sketch, but it's made of high gloss black vinyl, designed to slip over the ‘clip ear’ style headstock and convert it to the newer design 2020 headstock. Will have the ‘Epiphone' logo on one side, and the 'Gibson' logo on the other (for the real...

    Identity Crisis

    Help needed, please. The sn is F6, so Fine factory, Korea 1996. I don't know if it's a Translucent Amber or something else. ‘Kluson’ style tuners w/ green buttons, ‘Limited Edition’ on headstock. TRC reads ‘GIBSON’. Pickups are not stock. I'm not sure what the back wood is, doesn't look like...

    Will the new headstock design reduce tone?!

    Sort of tongue-in-cheek question, but I was looking at my 90’s Epiphone headstock vs. a typical Gibson version. Most of the discussions so far have been based mostly on aesthetics. A lot of the extra wood is between the nut and the E and e tuners. Years ago, they even sold this device that...

    I'm confused about the goings-on @Gibson

    This is NOT a bashing thread, nor do I want it to become one. For the last couple of years or so, I've read a lot about how bad Henry is at the helm, and how all the major players from designers and builders have been let go or left voluntarily. There were also posts describing how poorly the...
