    That new Gibson smell: It's the case, not the guitar.

    It Its the case, the wood, the glue to assemble the guitar, the buffing compound and the nitro, maybe some other things.. But much or most of it is the case, I agree. What you “proved” is that you made your Tele smell kind of like a Gibson case. All the other parts of the smell of a new...

    Historic Reissue, or not even a genuine Gibson?

    Looks like a LP standard from 2012.

    Tuner Gear Ratio help

    Klusons are good. They hold and none of this wind-wind-wind stuff. A quick flick of the wrist and your In tune. Grover’s are adequate but a LP is supposed to have klusons.

    Historic Changes 2007 to 2020

    2013s had some 2-14 features, carve, color, neck slightly smaller, but what I remember was a metal tag on the back,switch cover as opposed to the whole metal medalion of 2014. Also both 2013s I had had better binding rollin than the 2 2014s. But the 2014s had more correct looking plastics. I...

    The crushing disappointment of removing your customebucker cover.....

    I have an R8 that came with zebra Custombuckers under the cover. But the dealer (Daves) ordered a LOT of R8s and spec’ed them that way. Zebra sounds much better than plain old black.

    The crushing disappointment of removing your customebucker cover.....

    Ummm.... exposed double creams maybe. Under the cover they can do whatever they want.

    Should i return my new Gibson? #2

    I think your expectations are skewed. Sorry but you don’t seem qualified to own a hand finished instrument. Return it and get a Schecter.

    Epiphone Headstock Theory...

    They did it because the old headstock looked awkward. Having a headstock twice as long as needed to support the tuners is a main reason why I can’t own an Epiphone. Ya, it’s the looks. The current/new design is much nicer looking..

    Gibson Deleted YouTube Videos. Mark Agnesi Fired?

    I just had to point out.... what you posted has NOTHING to do with the topic. It is specifically for the USED AND REFURBISHED AUTO PARTS INDUSTRY. If one actually read it, you would find it frowns on an industry that does nothing BUT refurb used stuff from claiming it is new manufacture...

    Gibson Deleted YouTube Videos. Mark Agnesi Fired?

    Agreed selling obviously used product as new might be considers fraud or deceptive. But the dude claimed that Gibson was breaking the law by using new parts off of new unsold guitars to make other new guitars. It just ain’t so. Its akin to saying if you bolt a tuner onto a guitar your making...

    Gibson Deleted YouTube Videos. Mark Agnesi Fired?

    For sure you are a great lawyer, and possibly a legislator too. Show me any federal or Tennessee state law that makes it illegal to disassemble parts from unsold inventory (or even returned for that matter) to manufacture new product. It does not exist, but many dudes speculate crap like this...

    Please show me your fiddlebacks.

    I think @Danelectro has a great example there. Beautiful. Here’s my R8 plaintop. I’d say it’s in the ballpark but still flames that are too wide and not twisted enough.

    Please show me your fiddlebacks.

    Nobody argued. He asked. So no need to chill because nobody is worked up. But I’ll argue that your politics and religion analogy is a stretch.

    Please show me your fiddlebacks.

    I think my old R0 just qualifies.

    Please show me your fiddlebacks.

    I don’t think so. Maybe the PRS. I always understood “filldeback” as twisted/braided thin random weaves with good clarity. Pinstripes, wide flames, quilt isn’t fiddleback. Unless of course you have a fiddle like that. Pearly Gates is a decent example.

    Please show me your fiddlebacks.

    I’ve seen a couple of stellar fiddlebacks, but not too many. Can I see yours?

    So I accidentally played a 2015 True Historic the other day.

    You set down “the best LesPaul” in 30 years” because it was $5k?

    which pots for your Reissue?

    So if I like the pots in all the reissues and most of the USA les Pauls from the mid 90s through 2014for sure, which ones do I like? I also bought a bunch in “Gibson historic” packaging and like them too. I usually play cranked Marshalls with no drive pedals and I like the volume pots that...
