    NGD - Vintage 1959 ES-345 TDSV

    Aloha folks! I thought I would share a cool new vintage ES that I recently found. Those who know me understand that I just can't say "No" to any vintage ES, but particularly '59 ES-345s, which I think are very special guitars. I didn't currently have a Sunburst, so found one and added it to...

    Greeny Burst Pickups - My Thoughts....

    Hey guys, Local shop ID’s this guitar as a 2014 “1960 Goldie Burst” reissue... Say they got it from a Gibson roadshow, being sold as new. The serial number is 0 4690 (which is an R0... but hats aren’t reflectors, there’s no pickguard/hole either). The colour is closer to a bourbon burst than a...
