    Pagey’s Black Beauty Custom is $20,000?

    The best I can determine is the topic per the OP is that something is wrong with some people because the asking price on a 2008 Jimmy Page LP “BB” Custom listed on Reverb is “fucking ridiculous”. Not sure if the beef is with the seller for the asking price or with buyers who might actually pay...

    Pagey’s Black Beauty Custom is $20,000?

    I guess the government should take over the company and just start giving them away. I guess plywood could be made to look like flames maybe.

    Pagey’s Black Beauty Custom is $20,000?

    I guess the OP didn’t see the Jimmy Page Murphy aged number 1’s. I think the lowest priced one is $25k and they’re only 2 pickups. :thumbs: https://reverb.com/p/gibson-custom-shop-jimmy-page-number-one-les-paul-tom-murphy-aged-sunburst-2004

    Pronouns For a Guitar...

    The Gibson is Black Betty named after the song and the Telecaster is Jennie Lee named after my wife cause they’re both blondes. My acoustic is just that.

    New Gibson - QC issues?

    I know probably nothing could be done about the inlay short of replacement but couldn’t the ding in the fretboard possibly be steamed out? I’m no expert just asking based on stuff I’ve read about dings in wood. OP already returned the guitar so doesn’t really matter but I’m still curious what...

    1975 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Gold Top

    I think it’s beautiful. Gold tops aren’t my favorite but if it’s a 75 then it would be the perfect year for me having been born the same year. Only issue that concerns me, and I’m no expert but, shouldn’t the serial number start with 99? It’s hard to tell but the best I can make out it starts...

    Why do people say or act like Gibsons are overpriced ??

    In reality the term “overpriced” is hyperbole. A person says it because it sounds like a legitimate complaint. However, the price of anything, product or service, is completely subjective. What may be overpriced to one person could easily be underpriced to another. To me a Playstation is...

    Murphy Lab - Finally Got it Right but Too Late

    I saw a MIJ photoflame strat in a local store recently and that’s exactly what I thought of when I opened this thread.

    SC LP Jr. vs DC LP Jr. vs SG Jr.

    I have no doubt there are great examples of all of them. I’m just wondering from a comparison perspective what individuals prefer. Endial said, as I did, that having both or all is ideal but having just one the single cut is “first base”. I appreciate the input. It’s seem more of a “feel” thing...

    SC LP Jr. vs DC LP Jr. vs SG Jr.

    Strictly just curious about true blue single P90 style Jr’s. Anyone who has or had 2 or all 3 what’s your take? Other than the obvious DC vs SC. Which do you like better and why? What is your opinion of each tone wise? Is there enough difference that you justify having more than one or is...

    Why do people say or act like Gibsons are overpriced ??

    I think it’s silly to generalize one particular brand as being “overpriced”. Each instrument is individually different. Some may be overpriced and some may well be underpriced. It all depends on the individual buyer. Just like some Epiphones may be over/underpriced. The funny part about this...

    What is the best Bigsby for LP Special?

    I got the B7 installed by about a week ago. I ended up using some rubber washers to reduce the break angle. I don’t like a super low action. I initially put EB Extra slinky’s on it which I believe are 8-38s. I thought they were the only new set of strings I had on hand. That didn’t go well. I...

    What is the best Bigsby for LP Special?

    Nice Firebird! Sorry about the lack of pictures. I do all my posting from my iPhone. I’ll try to get my computer out and get some pictures up probably Sunday. Me and my wife are going to a concert tonight. Going to see Chris Stapleton, Jamey Johnson, and that old guy who wears the bandanas. :rofl:

    What is the best Bigsby for LP Special?

    Here’s the crazy thing, they’re in stock at Sweetwater but I know they don’t come with the pcb connector but they’re not in stock at Gibson. :dunno: I also haven’t heard back from Gibson as to whether they even come with the connector soI’m starting to think I’ll likely end up having to do a...

    What is the best Bigsby for LP Special?

    I’m not ruling out using another brand but Gibson makes a HB sized P90 so it would fit right in and be adjustable. I’m also hoping they come with the quick connection so I can just plug into the pcb and be done. Otherwise I’ll likely have to remove the pcb and completely rewire it. I’m not...
