    Gibson USA Flametop Friday!

    I searched and didn't see a thread on this yet, so here we go! It's Friday, which for all us working folks means a day of celebration. Almost time to kick back and enjoy the weekend. What better way to celebrate that to share photos of our flamed beauties? I've seen a similar thread for...

    The next SG in the Modern/Original Collection: batwing SG Standard w/ lyre vibrola ala, '67-'71 SG Standards

    It is not being made...yet. But, we can make this happen!! With Gibson returning to their roots and answering the demands of players who want the 'traditional' classic designs, my hope is that Gibson gives some hard thought to releasing the SG Standard (from the modern collection) with a lyre...

    NGD - Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s...for the lefties!

    It's been a long time since I've bought a new guitar. As a lefty, you don't often get the chance to be picky. I've loved getting to see all the NGD threads on these new Original series LPs. When it was announced (at a previous NAMM show I think) that they would also be doing lefties, I knew I...

    New models in left hand?

    Has anyone seen anything stating that any of the new models (either standard line or newer limited editions) are going to be made left handed? I haven't seen anything but maybe someone else has. Just checking in for our lefty brothers and sisters.

    Saw a stripped korean G400 in the shop today for $20...

    ...S98 serial. Moderate stress crack at nut slot. Half my guitars have headstock repairs. No biggie. Nice and lightweight. Described as 'wall art'. Should go back and rescue it?:naughty:

    Fret scale template - compensated for nut or zero fret? A discussion...

    Hello all builders, Thank you for allowing this forum to be a continual source of education and fun for this perpetual student! With my first build (neck through left handed SG) nearly done, I'm looking at starting my next project, which I think will pay homage to EC's cut 1958 Explorer. I...

    Can Gibson, or will Gibson, now work to restore their commitment to smaller and medium sized dealers?I

    I hope this thread will be an ongoing discussion. This thread brought to remembrance the good old days of Saul and of Centre City which are no more. It is a long story but worth your time to research and points to a specific business practice that Gibson has employed to edge out smaller sized...

    NSGD! (or, a new addition to Dave's Orphanage for broken Gibsons)

    Can anyone help identify this Les Paul model?

    I'm interested in knowing the specs on this guitar, that Andy from Tone Report/Reverb videos plays. It is a 2008 or earlier, full binding, tobacco sunburst rimburst, with exposed coils and no model name on truss rod cover. Specifically, I'm really interested in the pickups he's using...

    Poll: More neck choices and the seemingly lack of 50s necks on new Gibsons

    I did a search and last post on this topic was from almost 5 years ago, so here we go:cheers: I have been interested in a number of new Gibson guitars, but almost every time I read a description of them, I notice they have a 60s slim taper neck. I know that there are plenty of used guitars out...

    NBGD (New Broken Guitar Day) !

    I haven't owned an actual left-handed guitar in quite some time. Usually I just flip a right-handed SG upside down and throw on a new nut and play around with intonation. When I saw this guitar I couldn't resist. When I opened the case, here is what greeted me - And upon closer...

    First build: left-handed neck through SG from pallet wood in the works

    First of all, I am very grateful for this forum and really all the people in it. You have inspired and challenged me to start, improve, and complete this build, without even knowing it. I have lurked here for several years, gathering info, asking a question here and there. I have learned so...

    The 2017 Gibson SG Special thread!

    Hey guys! So I took a visit to Wildwood Guitars in Louisville, CO just the other day and my bandmate and I tried out a bunch of different guitars. We started with Les Pauls, but then moved to SGs and our other guitarist instantly became a fan (can't blame him, my first love was always SGs!)...

    Need some good budget Les Paul recommendations

    Hey guys, So at band practice yesterday I bring my '16 Gibson Les Paul Standard faded 50s for our second guitar player to try out. He's young, been playing for a little bit, and is playing a 7 string import metal style guitar right now. I'm playing a '70 SG Standard and we've been talking...

    Hey guys, Up for sale is a 2016 Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded 50s Honeyburst model I just recently purchased due to the reputation of these guitars. I purchased this guitar a few weeks back and due to a family situation I'm going to have to let it go. The last Les Paul I owned was a...
