    Trying to Figure Out if This Is this a Knock Off...

    yea no nibs. if you just see a fret and the binding doesn’t come up to cover the edge of the fret that is one of the dead giveaways

    man how much is this hide glue thing a a thing? The nicky I believe has hide glue but I don't think the Greg Martin 15 did (2013 vs 2015) it seems like the guitar is so resonant acoustically and its got the go and have a bite nigel tufnel sustain. You can almost see the sound waves propagating...

    Eyeing Gibson R8 2003 Brazil Board with serial number 8xxxx...for 4000 USD

    Im about 99 percent sure they didn't have COAs for a regular R8 in 2003... let alone one that came in that little booklet like that. the back of the guarantee foldout thing should also have a date. I don't think they had those stickers on the PG like that in 2003 either but I could be wrong...

    I'm not an expert but I've had now two collectors choices and one historic makeover and no murphy lab but 3 Gil Yaron replicas, a couple R9's and now two Duane Hotlanta s .... They are all great.

    PB132461 by peter ellman, on Flickr Hello everybody its been a long time since I posted. I felt I had a couple worth while and some morning Carolina sunlight bringing the flames on these two beauties. I've kinda been on a journey. Corpse knows a lot of it. I'd say back in 2002 it all started...

    PNVGD 1958 Les Paul TV Model Junior Single Cut

    First real vintage Gibson-- Corpse here is responsible. I had been wanting one of these for a good year or two but the right one didn't seem to come up. I think this is perhaps a covid related sale. I guess there IS a silver lining. I heard the spotted salamanders are also thriving due to...
