    Estate Sale Acoustic, is it a J45 or a LG Series?

    As fas as t know, the LG series was built on a smaller body, 14 1/8 inches across the lower bout. The J series was larger, 16 1/8 inches across. Should just be able to measure and know exactly which model you have. LG-0/1 are ladder braced, braces run perpendicular to the strings. LG-2/3 are...

    ES-330 Problem - Anyone have a solution?

    The Lollars pole pieces are spaced differently for the neck and bridge pick-ups. Get another bridge pick-up and put that in your neck position and that should solve your problem.

    1987 Gibson have a kahler tremolo???

    Yes, it was an available option. It is easy to install a stop tail piece and Nashville bridge as the screw holes are in the proper location. There is a large area under the Kahler that is routed out and will be visible if the vibrato is taken off.

    Thinking about an SG.

    I believe some of the 61 RI were made with a one piece body while others were multi-piece. I would go with a one piece as that is more like the original 61.

    1958 Flying V just listed on Reverb

    You guys have better memories than I do! What was the name of Albert's store across the street from GC. When bursts were "only" $30k, I was considering getting one.

    Medallion V #338

    Play it for awhile and then decide. A re-fret would not be a deal beaker for me. Post some more photos, congrats on your new toy!

    Interesting 1961 Les Paul Standard on ebay

    It would be interesting to ask Gary about this guitar to see if he remembers it and why he didn't mention the serial number's large font. Also, if he did a black light test as it may show if a neck replacement was done. Looks like there were three guitars (LP Std/LG-0/ES-330) assigned the number...
