    Anybody recognize this carbon fiber Les Paul case?

    I emailed for a quote for a Les Paul Case. Here's the response. Right around $1385 US. - 10%. Not including croatian VAT (Whatever that might be). Looks like you'd need a few more dimensions for a Les Paul. "for next few day we have 10% off for all cases, so the price for ultralight guitar case...

    1959 in 1979 Photo at a club!

    Here's a photo I took of a friends' 1959? in Niagara Falls in 1979 at the Aladdin Lounge. Wish I knew the serial number. I tried to paste in the URL but it said the file's too large. Anyone know the size limit of a jpeg?

    1966 Telecaster Regret!

    Here's a few photos of a 1966 Telecaster I owned in the 90's. It was my first Tele and wasn't quite into them at the time. 100% original with factory wide frets and the flamiest neck I've ever seen on an old Tele. This is one of only a couple guitars I regret selling. You can't keep them all...

    1969 Les Paul Gold Top ???

    Let me tell the story of this gold top. Purchased by me in the late 80's described as a 1968 which I don't believe because of the photo evidence shown. I believe it might be a 1969 Deluxe??

    53/54 Stud Lean Problem (pictures)

    I had a slight stud lean problem with my 53/54 GT. I'm not sure what year it is because there's no serial number and non original pots. It did have the thin eared wrap tail and the 1/2" anchors. The stud lean was livable but the ground wire wasn't working. Here's how I removed them tonight. I...
