    Alligator Les Paul case??!!

    I got only one faux gator case; it's hiding a guitar that came originally with a Bigsby but I removed the Bigsby and installed a short trapeze. Will soon have a proper wrap tail :D

    Ordering from Wilcutt

    I had a somewhat similar experience, only one time. I purchased the guitar pictured in the first photo; 1 of a 20 limited edition run. When my purchase arrived it was a different guitar (#09 of 20 made/pictured below) from the same limited run. Even though they both have the same top color...

    Book matched flame with mismatched annual ring - The Strange Maple Top

    Shipping conditions

    yeah, I ran across the same issue here at TLPF as well. I have never had this issue on any other forum over the course of ~25 years. odd, to say the least

    NGD = hand made Korina Explorer replica arrives from Land of the Rising Sun

    a 'friend' that has resided in Japan for some time and that is very good with the Japanese language and is also up to date on MIJ guitars stated the following. "For the question, all the old Maxon stuff that would be u-1000 or u-2000 I have seen from 1977-79 were Alnico." I am aware that...

    Book matched flame with mismatched annual ring - The Strange Maple Top

    they were both produce by Deviser Co Ltd. in the 2004/2005 time frame at the Aska facility in Matsumoto city, Nagano Japan. The one I sold was a custom ordered (hence no serial number) Bacchus BLS made with African 'hog aka Khaya body and neck and Indian rosewood 'board. The 'plain' top...
