    The guitar wasn’t the only thing that got hosed in the end.

    Well, I have been out of pocket since the wife was admitted to the hospital and in ICU for about a month. The sale between BetaCat and myself was a private issue, and facts misrepresented. I see you heartless bastards have been flaming me non-stop. I have loved this forum and had many successful...

    What exactly do I own?

    Welcome to the forum. Those black thingys in the control cavity are likely your tone capacitors. Pix will definetely help, but thus far I'm banking on a '73. :welcome:

    Is the Gibson 335 The Best Guitar Ever Made?

    Well, the block inlay defines a period, not the tone per se. My '65 looks like it's been to hell and back, but plays and sounds incredible with the early PAT # sticker-ed PUs, Besides, I really don't see it while I'm playing anyhow:

    Is the Gibson 335 The Best Guitar Ever Made?

    I have always said, that if I ever had to get rid of my guitars but one, the 335 would be the last one I'd hold on to.

    Peter Frampton "The Phenix" Custom Shop Model

    Saw Peter play that one at a gig in our town a couple years ago. He actually spent a little time talking about how it was lost and then recovered. Cool (but sad for those who perished) story, and great sounding guitar. Love the guy, and he played some stuff from his Humble Pie days, as well as...

    NGD content, not sure if its a keeper...

    SGs are notorious for "neck-dive", because of the unbalanced body/neck weights. If the extra weight is in the body, perhaps this will alleviate some of that. If not, and you're not happy, send it back. When you buy something new, and spend that much, you should be totally satisfied. If it was a...

    Question About Selling My 1980 Natural LP Standard.

    Don't let it go too cheap. These are uncommon guitars, and will only go up in value. Some of these were still being made in Kalamazoo at the time (not really much difference, but a plus to a "cork-sniffer" buyer). Usually the last three digits in the serial number will denote K'zoo if under 500...

    Question About Selling My 1980 Natural LP Standard.

    I don't know how long your auction is up for, but there are a lot of collectors who covet the naturals, as they aren't as common. You might be able to make a trade here if you post a "for trade" (FT) listing in the classified forum here (and elsewhere, like the Les Paul Forum, Gear Page, etc.)...

    ES-335 Dot reissues - diff features throught the years?

    Update: I went to look at it last night and fell in love! It had the '59 neck. I ended up trading my 2011 Dot reissue + cash for it. The 2011 had the slimmer '60s D shaped neck, and I'm really partial to the bigger necks on my Historic LPs. This baby came with all the original case candy and is...

    Melody Maker Appreciation Thread~

    I know I posted this guitar here over four years ago, but have since hat it upgraded to an Echo Park mini-humbucker, and now this guitar absolutely screams! I kept the original electronics, and no routing required, so can easily be restored to original. Here's before and after pix:
