    '65 ES-335s......How Many Stop-Tailpiece Models Shipped?

    Just curious.....most folks are aware that in 1965 Gibson started shipping ES-335s with their standard trapeze tailpiece, and within a month or two, completely phased out production of 335s with the stop-tailpiece. Anyone have a rough estimate of how many stop-tail, ES-335s Gibson made in 1965...

    Jethro Tull Live at the Capital Centre 1977, Martin Barre w/ 1959 Les Paul Standard

    I'm just blown away with Martin Barre's live performance in 1977 at the Largo, MD, 12,000 seat arena, Capital Centre. If anyone wishes to experience a great example of the signature tone of a 1959 Gibson Les Paul "Burst", you need look no further. It's hard to tell from the grainy concert...

    ES-335, Trap Tailpiece....vs. Stop Tailpiece, A Functional Analysis

    My aim here is to objectively assess the characteristics and performance of Gibson's trapeze tailpiece installed on ES-335/345s manufactured from 1965 onward. I break down the subject by delving into practical applications of classical mechanics. Many will be familiar with the basic concepts...

    1959 Gibson ES-345 owned by Hank Garland and used with Elvis - See Video! Very nice touch...Hank is using a little slap-back echo. His 345 sounds very pure and clean. I wonder what strings he is using? :salude <iframe width="765" height="574"...

    1967 Gibson ES-335, Reverb Listing

    I'm looking at a Reverb listing for a vintage 1967 Gibson ES-335. The seller claims the unplayed guitar was discovered "under-the-bed" of the original owner's family house. Perhaps I'm wrong... but IMO it looks too perfect, and then the red flags... Here's a link to the Reverb listing...

    I have a 1958 Les Paul Junior that is one of my favorite guitars. It rings like a bell, plays like "butter" (w/ PLEK/refret), and has a medium-fat neck that is a delight to play. I was restringing my Junior last night and noted the truss rod rattled quite a bit after I removed all six strings...

    I have a nice Collings I-35-LC that is a great example of what a premium semi-hollowbody electric guitar can be. There is just one minor annoyance with this Collings that bugs me occasionally; i.e., the 24 7/8" scale length. I measured the individual string lengths on my I-35-LC and the only...

    Old Mahogany Bed, Henkel-Harris, Winchester, VA, Should I Repurpose for Guitar?

    I have an old American made solid mahogany bed made by Henkel-Harris Co. back in the 1980s. It's a colonial style pencil-post bed made in Winchester, VA in the mid-1980s. Unfortunately the two 7-ft. long mahogany side-rails/boards have warped over the years making the bed unusable. I can't...

    1958 Les Paul Junior Single-Cut Neck Joint Gap

    I have a 1958 single-cut Les Paul Junior and always felt the design of the neck joint was a little peculiar. For example, on these single-cut Juniors there is a small gap between the end of the neck and the rear of the body route (see photo). On my guitar the gap is about 1/8" wide. The...
