    How old are Historic and RI owners?

    I'm 58 as well. :yesway: Although, I bought my first R8 in 2005, at age 42. My first Gibson was a 71 (?) Sunburst Les Paul deluxe that I bought used in 1982, (at age 19) or thereabouts.

    Will these Kluson tuners fit a '65 SG?

    Yes, they should if your SG hasn't been modified. (tuner holes drilled out for another type) Is your SG a Junior? This style was used for Juniors; although a 65 would probably have had dual line Klusons.

    61 or 62?

    Can we have some more pictures of the guitar? If it's a junior, and it has a lightning bolt bridge, that would suggest a 62, I believe. The heel photo you shared also looks more like a 62.

    You joker. :laugh2: I'll venture to say that it's buffered. (?)

    T-Tops vs. Wizz vs. Monty's

    Hi Don. Sounds like you have quite a few potentially great sounding pickups to try out in that guitar. I know you're a professional with a soldering iron, so I'd suggest (like others have said) that you swap in those replacements on hand and give em a try. Fwiw, I'd probably start with the...

    Hot Sauce!

    My favorite all-around hot sauce (for quite a few years) is Marie Sharp's "No wimps allowed". It adds a nice flavour and a bit of heat. For when I want extra fire, I use Dave's "Insanity"! You have to be very careful with this stuff - Just one drop is enough to give some nice heat and flavour.

    Uncle Lou is at it again '59 bigsby

    The original one of this thread, the one Kirk Hammett used to own. ( I think) Are you sure they're not the same guitar?

    Uncle Lou is at it again '59 bigsby

    I got to play this guitar in October 2014 at Rudy's Music in Soho. It seems it's been around! I was told at that time that it had been Kirk Hammett's. I think they were asking $285,000. It's a beautiful burst for sure! I don't like the look or feel of a Bigsby on a Les Paul, but lots of...

    Brazzy Fenders?

    Yes, but I believe they changed to Indian rosewood around 1965/66. (CBS era)

    1961 Les Paul Special TV

    Welcome to the forum, and congrats on owning that guitar! We're still waiting on the photos btw... :naughty: If you want the attention of a forum member, I think you have to put a @ sign before the name. @Sharky I would also be tempted to ask for other recommendations regarding a restoration...

    What pickups are in your Les Pauls ?

    In my 2007 R8, I've got a set of 2008 Throbak SLE-101 + LTD humbuckers. (NOS wire) In my 1963 Les Paul Junior, I've got the stock Gibson P90. :)
