    Clapton maestro tailpiece mod for 63 SG

    That's my SG in the initial post. Unfortunately, photobucket has removed the pictures... I'm not clear I understand your issue, but I have no problems playing above the 17th fret. I didn't originally look to go this route. I traded a HM for a '63 husk that someone bought to part out. The...

    Help me decide which direction to go on a new guitar

    I wish I had some sage advice for you. I often look at the handful of guitars I have and wonder if I could ever be happy with just one... the answer is no... so I wonder how others are able to be. It must have been easier pre-internet when you couldn't have so much access to look at so many...

    Capsule Music's 50's Les Paul's...

    I struggle with the notion of a 're-topped' guitar being considered genuine vintage any longer or that the value should be equal to or greater than an off-center seam conversion. seems to me it should be more appropriately called a 'player grade' conversion and sell for <=$10k. Do the...

    Would you trade your number 1 for a superior guitar..

    seems kind of wrong to me to make an offer that you weren't committed to. With that being said, a '68 small headstock would be more preferrable. Do you like the feel of ebony? I know someone who claims anything '72 or earlier is using the same old wood that they used in the '50s. I guess...

    Here we go!! HM started TODAY

    The ebony standard I have (people call it a blackburst, but there is no flame under the paint) was not aged. @OP - If you are going to have the paint faded, I would go with aging that would be consistent with the paint. Keep in mind that not all of the originals have weather checking...
