    need help finding rare gibson

    I know I'm bumping an old thread. This isn't for sale, but I guess if the price is right... So, just curious -- how much were you looking to spend?

    Gotcha. Thanks.

    57 Goldtop

    Duh. But I always thought there was no uniform system for serial numbers prior to the mid to late 70s. Nice guitar either way. If it's real, it's in incredible shape for a 55 year old guitar.

    57 Goldtop

    Oh, I just assumed he was trying to rip off an unsuspecting buyer. Carry on. The serial number is the same as the serial numbers the custom shop uses. Did they use the same format back in 1957?

    I'm Ignorant. Is this considered an R0?

    Thanks for all the helpful responses. Now, I just have to get the guitar.

    So this is a reissue, right?

    I'm Ignorant. Is this considered an R0?

    I have no idea. The specs say "Gibson’s traditional ’50s rounded neck profile." But I also read somewhere that Gibson didn't even offer a single cut Special in 1960 -- only the double cut. So, yeah, I don't think it's a historically accurate reissue.

    I'm Ignorant. Is this considered an R0?

    Thanks. I covet this guitar, and I needed to know what to call it when I brag to people after I finally get it.

    I'm Ignorant. Is this considered an R0?

    Sorry for being stupid, but I'm curious. Is the Custom Shop 1960 Les Paul Special VOS considered an R0? Reason I ask is because, (1) it's a Special, and (2) from what I understand, it's not really an accurate reproduction of the 1960 special to begin with. Thoughts? Gibson.com...

    '90s Nighthawk Standards

    Thanks. I'll check out that auction. I do have an original gibson hardshell case, which I picked up separately a few years ago.

    '90s Nighthawk Standards

    Just out of curiosity, do you have any idea what the value of a Sequoia Red Nighthawk from the Landmark Series would be today? That has been my main guitar since I bought it used about 11 years ago for $400. I had always wanted a Gibson, and that was the only one I could afford at the time...

    Gibson Nighthawk Yes or No

    I know I'm bumping an old post in an old thread, but I thought it was worth posting. For the record, the blueshawk did not have P-90 pickups. It had Blues 90 pickups, which only look like P-90s because they have the same soapbar casing. pickups

    For Sale or Trade: Gibson Les Paul Studio Robot in Midnight Manhattan Blue

    Hi guys! I'm offering my Gibson Les Paul Studio Robot in Midight Manhattan Blue. She's a beauty, and in perfect condition. I bought it new and have only played it a few times. The robot electronics work flawlessly. The only reason I'm looking to unload it is that I really never play...

    Phillies Fans = Class...

    In a way, it was a show of respect -- he killed the Eagles over the years, and the fans were just cheering that he wouldn't be able to hurt the Eagles in that game. Nobody knew that it would end his career at the time.

    What I meant by "it stuck" is that I started using on a Philadelphia forum, and I liked it, so I kept using it. A friend suggested it. We both thought it was funny (in that context), so I used it.
