    1972 GT Deluxe

    Question on this one.....it is a '72..no doubt. Was there ever a time when Gibson did not put the Les Paul singature on the headstock? This one is blank and the headstock definitely has not had a repair of a bad break which might have destroyed the 'Les Paul'. Any help is appreciated.

    ???VAlue of low profile ABR-1's, late '50's knobs???

    Okay, I have seen an ad for a lo-profile bridge where the seller wants $850 for a lo-profile ABR-1 without saddles. That's is a premium price, I am thinking. I have the bridge that fits a certain unbound 1958 ES-335 that I bought and sold earlier this year. The selling price was adjusted for the...

    Joe Walsh, EAgles and the Norlin Les Paul

    So, I was watching 'The History of The Eagles' last night. There is Joe Walsh wailing away on a Norlin-era Les Paul. This is another testament that not all Gibson electrics from that era are bad guitars....as we all know. I have yet to play a Norlin-era Gibson acoustic that I would buy...except...

    Very late '58 PAF bobbin color ID??

    These are the first PAF's I have had in my hands out here in the wilderness, so I have a question on ID'ing the bobbin color. I understand that '59 is generally accepted as the beginning of zebras. Out of curiousity, I pulled two of the small Phillips screws out of each pickup. From an angle on...

    Zebra PAF's from late '58???

    Is this unheard of? I am looking at an unbound neck '58 ES-335--sad shape--- with original electronics...and I swear I see white bobbins through the holes for the non-adjustable coil. I have little experience and provide.net gives the impression that '59 is the start date for white bobbins.
