    Luthier in Dallas-Ft Worth Area

    I hope this is an appropriate forum for this... I'd like some some recommendations for a luthier in the DFW/North Texas area, please. My 52 Conversion needs some work done and I really don;t want to ship it. Much rather drive it. Thanks for any help.:dude:

    1953 Custom at Emerald City

    Hi all. They just posted this video a couple days ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNsZ4MLgt_8 Two things I'm curious about: 1. He says that there were no serial numbers on Les Pauls in 1953 and weren't added until the "next year". There were in fact some finally added as that year (1953)...

    Need help finding 3/4 size electric

    Hi all, My good friend and musical soul mate has neuropathy from Type 1 Diabetes and its affecting his hand strength, especially with barre chords. I thought maybe a 3/4 size guitar might help. I know nothing about those guitars and was wondering what I/he should look for. Any particular...

    71-72 Les Paul Top Carves

    I hope I'm in the right Forum for this. Can some folks please post some pics of the top carves from these years? I'm interested in those "'54-''58" Reissue Goldtops and have searched various places for good carve shots but don't really have much success. I'm Top Carve-obsessed and I'm pretty...

    The Negatives.

    I wonder, does Gibson keep a log of who declined having their Vintage Burst or Les Paul made into a CC or Artist Model? :hmm Maybe it doesn't matter. If you can get Clapton to sign off on a reproduction of a guitar that was stolen and he hasn't seen in 48 years ago...

    Howdy. Anyone know who can or does make them? Mind is very old and I need another. I figure this would be the place to ask. PM me perhaps if this is considered spam or delete the thread? Thanks.

    Natural/"Stripped" 58 Historic: Kossoff Style

    I don't think I've ever seen a factory natural Historic a la Koss' stripped one. I don't think that was Gibson's idea but I find this *very* attractive, being a Koss fan. Would definitely stand out from other Les Pauls out there. No affiliation with seller, etc...

    Burst in Stevie Wonder video

    I don't know where the original link to this is so I'm using the Facebook link. What is up with this Burst? It looks like someone carved a big chunk out of the middle? (Stevie is cooking!) https://www.facebook.com/dischidaleggere/videos/824775844264640/

    Say what?

    Has anyone ever seen *real* wear like this on a Les Paul, reissue or vintage, around a thumbwheel? This really makes me question the competence of some "ageing" practitioners.
