    Hope summer is treating you all well, in Sweden it pretty much sucks so far.... I was gonna save this project for the fall but since the weather isnt really that uplifting I thought what the heck. So what do we have? The seller got it in this heavily modded state around 25 years ago and he...

    The anarchy Joan Jett MM build

    The 1965 Melody Maker D is probably my favourite Gibson model...and Joan Jett among my favourite artists. Runaways and KISS were the gods back in around -77 :) Joan and the -65 with a few years between... Both still look great :dude: Got some odd stuff laying around and decided to try...

    The old SG Jr. rebuild

    Hi fellow dudes/dudettes. I just got an old SG Jr. body to match and old SG Jr. neck that I got a while ago. This of course means project time. :) As allways, its hard to predict the level of success but its allways worth trying. So what do we have? A refinished and partly stripped old SG...

    MM -59... "The Stick" project

    Hi. Ok... Eh, bought this one a few months back... Very nice neck, great player in fact.. and thats where the positives end I suppose. Some creative person did some modding to this old Melody Maker, many years ago probably. A shame, but it also gives me the opportunity to afford something...

    Nylon nut?

    Good day everybody. Im trying to determine an approximate age of an old SG/LP junior neck that im going to restore and use for a project build. Unfortunatly the logo and serial number is long gone, as someone messed up the head stock. I think it still has the original nut though. I thought...

    Glued frets...or not?

    Ive been wondering about this from time to time and yesterday when I lifted the frets from my LP Studio -95 it came up again. The frets on this one were in fact glued, probably with titebond by the looks of it. Pretty sure they are original from the factory. Ive looked at some of these factory...

    Anyone seen this type of trussrod?

    Hi all. Well, I bought this old LP type thing. My guess is that it is from the seventies. Has anyone seen this particular design a of truss rod before? The brass nut of course looks Gibsy, but the trussrod is of a different design. The "middle part" visible in the pictures that the rod runs...

    Weird LP sort of guitar thingy....

    Well, being a gibby nerd with impaired ability to say no, I kind of got some GAS over this somewhat ugly thing. It was out on ebay.. Its a strange creation, and I believe its some sort of a pickup test rig, or maybe some pickup demo guitar(?) Ive seen Lundgren pickups use a construction that...

    1958 burst, the real stuff?

    Hi. So this alleged -58 is up for sale in Sweden. What do you guys think who have the experience and knowledge. Does it look like the real deal? The pickguard is replaced according to the seller. Tailpiece looks like it from a junior as well, with the adjustment-screws(?). I think its a...
