    Electric Guitar
    Hi! I'm new on this forum and I had a question to you gibson owners out there. Even though the title pretty much says it all, here's the longer story. I'm about to get an american special telecaster from a trade, really cool guitar. Thing is, I already have enough tele's and I was thinking of...

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    I recently picked up a pair of El Degas Les Pauls. One I’m just going to reassemble and see if I can make it work/play and turn it out for a couple bucks or trade for something. The other (black custom) will be the basis of this thread. I’m going to fix it up the best I can and give it to my...
  5. Gibson Les Paul Monster Energy, how much is it worth?

    Electric Guitar
    A friend has a Gibson Les Paul Monster Energy guitar that he wants to sell. He had it for a couple of years and he could use extra money right now but he's out of the country, so he asked me to help him sell it. How much do you think it's worth? More, because it is a "collectable" piece, who was...

  9. Should I get a PRS?

    Electric Guitar
    I've been trying to decide on a guitar to buy for a while and I think i want a PRS SE custom 24. They are somewhat affordable from what ive heard they are really nice guitars. My dad has a very nice Fender Strat that i really enjoy playing but the only thing i would change about that guitar is...
  10. Les Paul pick up rings

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    Just wondering if anyone has a good reference for a place to order pick up rings - I have a 1971 Custom with a cracked (stock) ring in the next position. Thinking of ordering aftermarket metal/gold colored rings - curved bottom required - lots of options on line, though I'm reading horror...
  11. Can you please identify this cheap Univox LP copy

    Electric Guitar
    Hello.. long listener, first time poster. Actually i just joined ;) I cannot find any info about this Univox les paul copy. I see a lot of pictures online, but all with no info. I can find more pricey versions that don't just have the standard dots on the neck. This guitar has no serial as well...
  12. Having a "Special" day

    Electric Guitar
    I just pulled these two ('57 & '63) out of mothballs. Every time I do they blow me away. I don't know why I don't play them more often. Not as hot and aggressive as a Junior, but still nasty and more articulate. The front P-90 also sounds killer. Anybody else having a "Special" day? Let's see...

    I have an 80's Les Paul Standard with cracked/broken pickup rings (cream colour). I'd like to replace them with period correct colour/spec rings.

  16. Any experience with Dolsey guitars?

    Electric Guitar
    I'm looking for an inexpensive backup LP-style guitar and had been thinking a Vintage V100 might be the way to go when I ran into these Dolsey guitars. They still seem rather obscure, but what few reviews exist seem to be glowing. Curious if anyone on this side of the border has any experience...
  17. NGD (for my son's birthday): 2015 Gibby

    Electric Guitar
    I just figured that when he's 40 these rare pieces of shite might be worth at least double. TBH, it plays and sounds great. My only complaint is that with two knobs, the tone control should be WAY more useable. The Larivee RS-2 (?) I had's tone knob was almost an all out wah - incredible. I...
