    '64 ES-335 pics...

    There was a thread about this guitar in Baywatch about a month ago: http://www.lespaulforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=164529 Since there was a lot of interest in it, I thought I'd post a few pics. The guitar was advertised as a 62-63, but is a 64.

    My tiny contribution to strap button technology...

    Finish washers available at Home Depot, 3 for .79. These fit perfectly over your stock buttons using the same screws. The curved top makes the strap go on easy, but the flat bottom makes it hard to fall off accidentally. The #12 size is the one you want... Cheap, simple, works great, and...

    Filling Grover indentations on Headstock....advice?

    A previous owner put the wrong Grovers on my guitar (posts too long, washers too big) and tightened them down enough to make some pretty good indentations. I've got the right vintage Grovers back on (small washers), and would like to repair the dents. Some time ago there were some posts, with...

    355 w/Bigsby...what strings to use?

    I recently bought a '61 355 from a forum member. Cool guitar, but it's a long way from the Bigsby to the D and G tuners. The Ernie Ball strings I use on everything aren't long enough to give me 3 good wraps. Maybe somebody could save me some experimentation and suggest a brand with a little...

    I've got some "issues".....

    ...Guitars, that is. (Formerly known as "used" guitars).... '57 Les Paul Special. Stripped, bridge changed and then changed back. "52 Les Paul. Refinished, bridge changed. (Please ignore the '61 ES 355 with the refinished neck and changed pickups, since it's a year too new and not a LP...)...

    '52 Refinish before and after pics..

    I enjoy looking at these kind of threads. Hope you will like my 52 that I just got back! I bought it from a forum member about a year ago. What a great sounding and playing guitar! No breaks and mostly original parts. Also an unfortunate refinish job and a shaved TOM and tailpiece that really...

    Replacement Studs for '57 LP Special?

    My '57 LP Special's a "player". It has the original wrap tailpiece bushings, but the studs are replacements and fit kinda loose in the bushings. Anybody know who makes replacement studs that would be a good fit in the vintage bushings? Thanks!

    '50s wrap tailpiece specs?

    What would be the correct wrap tailpieces for a '53 LP and a '57 LP Special? Specifically: Aluminum, Zinc, or Steel? "Thin" or "thick" ears? Thanks!

    Installing Uncle Lou's on "Gibson Deluxe" tuners

    I've installed the Uncle Lou's buttons on vintage Klusons with great success, and now want to do it to the "Gibson Deluxe" tuners on my '02 R8. But before I heat 'em up to put the new tips on, I'm wondering: do these particular tuners have any plastic washers/bushings inside that might get...
