    Anyone on this Forum have info on the step up transformer of a 1973 LP Signature?

    Fellow members, I thought I would try a long shot here, and see if anyone has knowledge of the short lived Les Paul Signature model made from 1973 to about '78. It was a semi hollow double cutaway model with F-holes, sort of like a smaller ES-335. These came with mini humbuckers that were...

    Need advice about the adj. bridge on my J-50

    Hello, I would like to get some opinions/advice about replacing the adjustable bridge on my 1964 J-50 (bought this in 1975 for $300). I've been getting fret buzz around the 12th fret on just the D & G strings, so I took it to my luthier to see what was going on. He showed me that the...

    Greetings, all. I need to get some advice from forum members who have good knowledge about 60‘s SG’s. I recently bought a 1969 SG Standard with Maestro vibrato tailpiece. I had a ‘69 back when I was a teen in the late 60's, but sold it in the late 70's, and have regretted it over the years...

    Need some advice on pickup ring upgrade

    Hello all, I have a 2005 Les Paul Classic Goltop that came with cream colored pickup rings that are the short ones, in terms of their height. I've been wanting to change them out to the taller rings, mainly because right now the bridge pickup sticks out of the stock ring quite a bit with how...

    Here's an "Other Gibson" you don't see every day!!

    Thought I would post some pictures of an "other Gibson", one you don't see every day. This is a Gibson Royaltone lapsteel, circa 1951 or 1952. There is no serial number to accurately date this piece, but Gibson made these starting in 1950 and discontinued the Royaltone in 1952. It was a rather...

    Any of you 335 owners seen pickups like these?

    Hello fellow 335 owners, I thought I would post a couple of pictures of the pickups on my 1972 ES-335 TD walnut finish guitar. I bought this new back in the summer of 1973 after working all summer to earn the $450 it cost me. The shop that sold it had received it in late 1972, where I went to...

    Where these pickup covers only found on 1972 Gibsons?

    I would like to learn some details about the original pickups that Gibson installed on my 1972 ES-335 TD walnut finish guitar (seen in my Avatar picture). Here are a couple of pictures of them: As you can see, they have pickup covers with the "Gibson" name embossed into the cover. Were...

    Classic vs. R0 - what's different besides the price?

    Hello all, This is a callout for information from those on this forum who are really familiar with the nuances between the various models of Gibson Les Paul's. I have a 2005 Les Paul Classic Goldtop ("1960" on the pickguard), and I'm really curious as to what the differences are between my...

    What pickups sound best in a modern Les Paul?

    All you Tone Meisters out there, I recently bought a 2005 Gibson Les Paul Classic Goldtop. Had a '79 Goldtop Deluxe that I sold years ago, and regretted it the day it left my house, so now I'm back with this Gibson Les Paul Classic Goldtop. It is not the chambered type that the 2007's are, but...
