    Grover Tuners for a Custom Shop Les Paul TV

    Hi All, I've been thinking down the road about installing aged Grover tuners onto my Custom Shop TV Model. Purely aesthetics. I know that the Grover 502C drop into a Les Paul headstock without drilling, which I do want, but I don't see them coming in an aged nickel version. Does anyone know...

    Underneath a TV Reissue SC Pickguard

    This is what appears underneath my TV reissue's pickguard. I thought that the long neck tenon would stretch farther down, but maybe I am not correct with that perception. Now looking forward to the Mojoaxe pickguard from @Danelectro

    Hi All, I've noticed that some of the Custom Shop Les Paul and SG Junior cases are now coming in a black/gold combination now, along with a black covered CoA. This looks like the shift from 2020 to 2021 years. Anybody hear of a reason for these changes? Thanks.

    Pictures - Aged Custombucker Alnico III Unpotted - 2018 Junior VOS

    Thanks again for all the advice in the other thread! Here are the end results. Both pickups are a pair I purchased out of a 2019 R7. The installed bridge pickup was done first --two coats of white vinegar and while that helped, it wasn't making a big enough of a change. So I bought muriatic...

    Aging a Gibson Customerbucker Cover

    Hi All, I just had a Gibson Custombucker Alnico 3 unpotted installed in my VOS Junior. Sounds great, but the cover is unaged and the rest of the guitar has aged parts from the factory. I don't want to mess up a great thing, but I was curious whether it is possible to age the cover while...

    International Gibson Shipping and Distribution Agreements

    I was surprised to find out recently that Gibson has shipping and distribution agreements with dealers outside the U.S. I assumed that Gibson wanted to sell as many guitars as possible, which would also include selling European located Gibsons and selling them to American customers. But I'm told...

    NGD: 2020 Les Paul Junior Lukas Nelson '56 Reissue

    Took delivery on this guitar yesterday (built late June) and can't say enough good things about it: 1. Guitar finish is fantastic. Not a cheap satin finish. The vintage sunburst color really shines in the morning light. 2. The build quality is equal to any Custom Shop Junior or Special that I...

    1986 Les Paul Junior Update

    Hi All, With Led Zeppelin I playing in the background, here's a bit of an update on the Junior I purchased a month or so ago. And yes, pictures! I really liked the stock Gibson P90, but I had always wanted a Seymour Duncan Custom Shop "Humbucker Under P90 Dogear." So I had one built. There is...

    What do you think about a mid 1980s P-90 Pickup?

    Hi Everyone, I want to get your opinion about the Gibson P-90 from the mid 1980s. I purchased a 1986 Les Paul Junior in Cherry, which I love. It is stock except for the Lollar P-90. The pickup and electronics sound great. The original P90 came with the guitar (the clear bobbin). In the...

    Difference Between a 2018 Les Paul Junior and the 2019/20 Original Collection Junior

    Hi Everyone, What is the difference between the two models? Is it just the Gibson script on the headstock or does it go deeper than that?
