    New protector cases

    Wasn't sure where to put this so I thought I would try here. Mods, please feel free to move this thread to a better location. I saw these on the Gibson site and was wondering if anyone has tried them and how they compare with the old Gen1 and Gen2 cases...

    CS-356 last year for ebony?

    I have been looking at CS-356 photos and can't determine if a particular guitar has ebony or Richlite board. It is a '06 and I thought they had ebony up to '07. Problem is I can't discern any grain in the fretboard but it just may be the pic. Does anyone know for certain when they stopped...

    NGD Mystic Gold

    Picked up this 2014 60th anniversary Strat in Mystic Gold the other day. I dig the Custom Shop Fat 50's pickups.

    R8 Custom Authentic 2004

    This reissue is from the Custom Authentic series that began in 2001 and evolved in later years to the VOS (Vintage Original Spec) guitars. Unlike the VOS, this guitar does not feature the dull finish, rather it is shiny but not to the degree of say, a new USA Standard model. No dings, dents, or...

    Epi Coronet

    Thought everyone might enjoy this 60's photo of a SoCal band called the Beatones in which my friend played bass. She passed away about ten years ago but her daughter posted this pic of the band the other day which includes one of the guitarists wielding a Epiphone Coronet.

    What is that thing?

    Talking about that one in the middle from this NAMM '14 pic that looks like a possible ES-225D reissue.

    Hoping for more responses here in the vintage section. Tell me how you think this repro looks or does not look like a vintage Junior pickguard.

    New guard Old guard

    This is not a vintage pickguard. Had it made for a recent LP junior. I am curious though to opinions on how much this does or does not look like a vintage Jr. pickguard. It is illuminated from behind to bring out the look of the material a little more.

    wide bevel TRC's

    When did the wide bevel truss rod covers go away on the ES thinlines? I am thinking '64-'65? Would that have been the same time the long guards also went away? Apologies if this has been asked before.

    ES-330 2012

    I am ready to buy one of these if I can ever decide what finish I want because they all look so great. Leaning toward the cherry today but... I played a Vintage Sunburst one and have to admit the mild aging looks really nice but I don't recall it having so much (or really much of any) wear on...

    Red Stick

    Going to be in Baton Rouge for a few days in the coming week. Are there any venues or music shops a Les Paul Forum member might like? Interested in BLUES, rock, & jazz primarily.

    I want to be blue

    No details other than it is part of a limited run of 25, but this popped up on the Gibson Custom facebook page the other day. Man, that looks good.

    ES-330 Reissue

    I've been waiting for Gibson to put up some info regarding this model. I like the way they sprayed the burst on this one although I would probably go for a Blonde myself. Does anybody know what they mean when they describe the neck as "Mahogany neck with Maple spline"? Where exactly does the...

    NGD Naturally

    Back in '08 when the ES-330L came out, I bought this one in Vintage Sunburst. It quickly became one of my favorite guitars to play plugged or unplugged. But what I really wanted was the same guitar in natural finish. It wasn't available and I let it go because I was so happy with the VS...

    Not sure what to think of this '63 "Goldburst". Might look good with some double whites, eh?
