    Book matched flame with mismatched annual ring - The Strange Maple Top

    I purchased a custom order flame maple top guitar many years ago and I kept it for 11 years before I sold it. It weighed in at 9 lb. - 8 oz. and the extra weight is why I finally sold it. If it would have weighed 1 pound less then I would still have it but the buyer loves it so, that makes me...

    Question About 1968 Les Paul gold top Pickups

    When Gibson reissued the Les Paul in 1968, as a 'gold top' I thought the pickups were P-90s. Well, I was looking online & I see what is claimed to be a 1968 gold top with the mini-buckers.
