    2014 Gibson R9 Fretboard Markings

    Hi guys, quick question. I recently sold a nice 2014 R9 and the new owner pointed out that there are some fretboard markings around the first fret.

    Aftermarket stop tailpiece replacement for 50s Les paul

    Hi guys, which aftermarket stop tailpiece would you recommend to fit in a 50s goldtop? I don't really want to chase an original one on ebay, because they're quite expensive. However I understand there might be some effect on the overall sound of the guitar. Any decent aftermarket replacements...

    What burst is this?

    I'm sure everyone here know this one, but I'd like to know what burst/serial is the one on the burstserial website's backround: It's probably the coolest top ever in my opinion.

    Does this 1960 LP junior look right?

    Can anyone suggest where I can buy a nut for two old Gibson juniors!

    I can't seem to find anywhere where I can buy a good 6/6 nut replacement for my old 59 single cut junior or my 64 sg junior. Can anyone suggest a place, for some reason it seems to be really hard to pick from the stuff available on ebay. Much appreciated

    Probably the first tele I ever had the pleasure of trying, was a 1968 mahogany thinline telecaster. It made a lasting impressions on me. Anyone else like the thinline version of the regular single coil telecaster?

I've changed the original nut on the guitar as the grooves were to wide, and it was buzzing all over the place, The...

    What do you guys think of this special?

    This one, has obviously been quite messed up... I've been looking at it and thinking it would be a good candidate, as a restoration project, or a no guilt heavily modified player, but I have no idea about whether the price is fair, considering the condition...
