    Ten years

    and 5,000 posts - a suitable time to take a break from all the good folks at the LPF. I absolutely love this forum, but I decided to devote more time to guitar playing with the goal to learn a new thing every day. So it's back to lurking mode. I've been a guitar nut since the late seventies...

    Conversion or not?

    I need some advice guys. The nice TM conversion on Ebay got me thinking - many of us see a humbuckered fifties Les Paul as the ultimate guitar. For those who can’t or don’t want to pay the price of an original one, a conversion is an interesting alternative. But what’s the best way to do this...

    Nice vintage goldtop

    1964 ES-335 - in 'sunbrust'

    'Brust' is breast in German. A sunbreast guitar - I like how that sounds. http://www.matthiasjabs.de/PRODUCTS/Gibson-ES-335-1964-SB,180,0,1,555.html Steep price for a hacked guitar though - and that trc is the 1965 style....hm.

    Question about vintage vibrolas and wafflebacks (SG Custom content)

    I'm looking at a really clean sixties SG Custom. What puzzles me is that the gold on the vibrola is super shiny without any pitting, not rubbed off or faded anywhere - it just looks totally new from all sides. The gold on the pickup covers is also still very much there BTW. But the original...

    Early patent sticker pups pricing?

    I did a search here, but have not found the answer. What would be the 'going' price for a set of these with covers? I am looking for the pre '64 variant for restoration purposes.

    Need urgent advice - Marshall 2150

    I have a line on a late 70s Marshall 2150, also known as the "rock & roll baby". Small, 100W with one 12" Celestion Powercell speaker. Apparently the only Marshall ever with a factory installed PPIMV master volume. Rave reviews on HC (9.9 average for sound from 19 posters) but those often...

    Bad pic of a '58 - anyone recognize this one?

    A very vague polaroid picture from 1981. I was at the home of a collector in the Rotterdam area, where he took this photo. He said the burst was a '58. I recall the very dark red shade around the pup selector and cutaway. Very mild flame, with a typical figure above the bridge pickup. Anybody...

    Reversing basketweave cloth - can it be done?

    Rather than replacing too messed up or overpainted basketweave grilles on old Marshall cabs with modern stuff, I wonder if anyone has experience with reversing the cloth. Is it at all possible, is there a risk of breaking the cloth when reversing it, does it look 'correct', etc. Opinions are...

    Question about used Mullards

    A guy offers me a used pair of EL34, black base, XF2 and BCsomething stamps. No brand visible anymore on the glass, there is single halo/getter in the pics (I cannot post these). I assume these are 70s Mullards - they are matched, were used in a Siemens 50W hi-fi amp and test 95% (whatever...

    Too cool '59 TV for $6K

    It's at Dave's. I can't believe how cool this looks, and the top repair seems a minor issue. I always wanted a double cut in the stable...plus it's a '59, TV, and a GREAT price. There must be something I am overlooking? But unfortunately I have other priorities now - maybe you guys are...
