    NGD - 2018 Les Paul Classic - Pelham Blue

    Just in. I have never owned a Gibson with P90 pickups. So, this will be a new experience for me. This thing is Heavy! No weight relief. But that's OK. So, It's 10:45PM, I can't plug in. But tomorrow night I plan to run it through some wattage. Gibson build quality is really great on...

    Pickguard sticker -- what do you guys do with them?

    I just got my 2018 R9. It has the Gibson Custom sticker on the guard. My 2009 and 2016 did not have that on them. I hate to lose it but realize it can't stay there. So what do y'all do with that sticker? Here is my new 2018 on the left next to my 2009 Ltd Ed R9 on the right. And here...

    What is the going price of a 2006 R8?

    I am looking at a possible trade for a 2006 R8 plaintop. I am wondering what they currently are selling for on the used market. Not mint. Excellent condition with some back worm tracks. Washed cherry.

    New ES-359 Flame top

    I am expecting delivery of my new ES-359 Figured Top today. I did a lot reading, talking and watching over that last few days before ordering. I have owned a few 335's over the years and, while I like then, they have always felt uncomfortable on stage. I am hoping that the smaller body on...

    G0 queston

    I am being offered a 2007 G0 (lemondrop). What is the average value of this guitar......what would it sell for if I got it and did not like it? I love my R9 and R0, but a G0 might make a good addition to the collection. Thanks.

    Knob Pointers question

    What is the best way to get the pointers back in the "correct" position when replacing pots. I bought an RS kit a year ago....never installed it. However that is my guitar related project during this weekend. I just want to keep the pointers in the right direction.

    Best ABR-1 replacement?

    What is the best source for a PRE-SLOTTED replacement, aged, for the ABR-1? There must be someone who sells them this way. I don't have any of my slotting tools anymore and would rather find one pre-slotted than dealing with any local guys to do it.

    Factory installed strings

    Does anyone know what guage Gibson ships the Historics with? I wonder because I just took the factory strings off my new R9 last night and installed a fresh set of Elixer 10s. Not only does it sound better, but it feels better too.

    2007 R9 -- Finally got one!!!

    I finally broke the bank and bought a new VOS R9! Now, I have had and sold a R7 and a R8. Those were good guitars but did nothing special for me. First, the necks were humongous! And secondly, I just did not think the cost was justified. YOMV... I have owned several LP's in the last 30...
