    Inlay gaps - okay or need filling?

    Cosmetic issue I guess. I have similar gaps on one guitar and it never caused any issues.

    Vintage 1969 Les Paul Goldtop with P-90s

    Insane! Would love to hear the story behind this one. I'd rather spend 10k on this than on some limited edition collectors choice that some folks put behind glass because playing might devalue it.

    Any idea what this kind of flame is called?

    Somewhere between wide flame and quilt? The "imperfection" of this top is what makes it perfect imo. Love it, nice score!

    Wiring in 87 Les Paul Studio

    If you have a multimeter you can check the resistance of the pickups in kOhm, they're probably what is now the 490R/498T set, but they could also be a PAF style pickup, that could explain the low output if your other guitars have burstbuckers or 490/498 sets. Ofcourse it could be a cold solder...

    Wiring in 87 Les Paul Studio

    The soldering doesn't look that bad to me. Did someone change pickups or are they original? Pretty sure you can get some better information if you google "change to 50s wiring gibson" or something. If you're not happy with the tone of your guitar when the volume and tone are at maximum, the...

    Wiring in 87 Les Paul Studio

    If they're 500k pots I don't see why you would change anything. Isn't going from modern to 50's wiring really easy? Just switch a few wires around?

    Seasoned Skillet.Who Maintains One?

    I tried a couple of times. It's not working for me I guess I don't fry enough greasy stuff to get a good seasoning. Ah well, atleast I eat healthy :dunno:

    Buyee ships worldwide, method depends on your location. I don't see UK on the list where EMS is available at the moment, but they'll keep your parcel stored for free until EMS is back and running. You can use FedEx/UPS but it's more expensive. I've used buyee a few times and so far everything is...

    celluloid inlay material

    Good luck, keep us posted. Test a really tine piece first, so if it set's on fire you're not ruining a large piece or damage the machine.

    celluloid inlay material

    Cut it with a Laser printer? I believe the stuff to be flamable so anything with laser in it sounds like a bad idea. But I'm far from an expert on the matter.

    Lets dig it up again. Time to test your knowledge! What years did Greco use the big oval sticker on the back of the headstock with the model number?

    weed and Covid-19

    I had no idea who either of them are so I went to wikipedia. Willie Nelson: While swimming in Hawaii in 1981, Nelson's lung collapsed. He was taken to the Maui Memorial Hospital and his scheduled concerts were canceled.[175] Nelson temporarily stopped smoking cigarettes each time his lungs...

    Only thing smoking weed helps you with is achieve an early death.

    Should I return my new Gibson Custom?

    I just came from that thread. Shaking my head, and wondering, are people getting pickier by the day or is Gibson dropping the ball like never before? Then seconds later I saw this thread title and I was like NO F*ING WAY, EVEN IN THE BACKSTAGE NOW?? Yep, got me good, funny stuff though
