    Doubleneck EDS-1275 Case Wanted Jimmy Page

    Need a case for an EDS-1275 Jimmy Page double neck that will provide good support. Doesn't have to be the exact case Gibson sold it with, just something solid that will fit. I think TKL made one that looks pretty nice. Something like this would work.

    Back in the day, Gibson was pretty open to custom orders, especially for artists. They built all kinds of cool variants that weren't in the catalog. Given the chance, what kind of "custom" electric guitar would you have ordered from Gibson in the late 1950's? I would go for an Explorer...

    Ebay fees for ending a buy it now before it sells?

    I know the fees have changed a lot lately. If you cancel an auction with bids on it, they charge you fees for 10% of the high bid. Is it the same thing for buy it now? If you end an unsold buy it now early, does ebay charge you a fee? Has this changed recently?
