    Case Candy - Gibson polish (1949?) SOLD

    This bottle of Gibson guitar polish came inside the original case of a 1949 Gibson archtop, along with this polishing cloth, by way of an estate. The bottle is 1/2 full of the original polish, which I would not try out on your burst at this point. In any case, its fun case candy, but especially...

    Gibson 60th Anniversary 1959 QC Issue

    Would you guys mind giving your opinion on something please? I’ve just purchased a brand new 60th Anniversary 1959. What are your thoughts on the image below? There in a slight binding ridge between neck wood and binding where neck meets the body. Think this has also caused a bleed of the dye...

    SOLD: 2017 VOS R9 Les Paul

    Up for sale is a 2017 '59 Reissue Les Paul in what I believe is Iced Tea finish. I got this very recently thinking that it might dethrone my beloved CC#7 as the only Historic that I'm allowing myself to own and it came pretty close, but the Shanks won out once again. This one's got a gorgeous...

    Marshall 1959HW Preamp Tube Blown

    EDIT: Fixed. Was the ECC83 in V1. Playing my 1959HW today and the volume suddenly dropped. Testing the amp, the Normal Channel seems to be fine but the Hi Treble makes no noise. Is it safe to assume this is a preamp tube? Or is something else possibly at play?

    FS: 2004 Gibson “Hot ‘Lanta” Les Paul 1959 Reissue

    Sorry for my ignorance but how can one tell? Is there a special serial number to look for or is it simply by the look of it? :wtf:

    NGD: 59 Junior!

    So I finally picked up a "bucket-list" guitar after a few years of casual searching for the right one at the right price! Its a 59' Junior! Appears to be all original, possibly the jack plate is not, its too clean! I took a peek at the pickup and it looks as if I'm the first one to see it since...

    1956 Gibson Les Paul Standard. 1959 Conversion. Continuing the discussion about modified Goldtops.

    Since there has been a fair amount of discussion about modified Goldtops, I thought I would post some photos of this unique guitar. While the center seam is not down-the-middle, it does run through the G string....pretty close. The guitar has been modified and had conversion work done on it...

    '59 PAF Talk

    Alright peeps, To all of you guardians of the knowledge, I was wondering something... And by the way, this is purely hypothetical: Are the humbuckers on a 1959 ES-335 the same paf as the ones on a 1959 Les Paul Standard? Or are they wound differently? And if you had a well made R9 and throw a...
