    Years of grease/polish on nitrocellulose finish

    Hey guys My vintage SG has years of grime and old polish all over the nitrocellulose finish. When I buff it with a cloth I can still see it all on there and I can Ismear it with my finger. I was going to use Virtuoso cleaner to remove it all. But after i spoke to them, they advised me not to...

    T-tops or PAF

    Hi everyone.... I have a vintage Gibson SG. The guitar itself appears to be 1968 and the hardware (pot codes) date February 1969. I'm curious to know which kind of pick ups this would have. I've read that it could be either T-tops or PAF. Is there any way to tell without removing the chrome...

    Vintage SG jack 1969

    Hi guys Just a small query. I have a 1969 Gibson sg standard. Some years ago I removed the jack socket and put a different one in. (I don't know why, I was young, lol). Anyway, I believe I still have the original part. It's a black rectangle cased jack plug. What I don't have is the washer...

    NGD: 1963 SG Special, Polaris White

    I was contacted back in June by a Gibson Custom Shop employee who saw a post that I made on MLP several years ago featuring my '61 LP/SG Standard. He created an account just to contact me and let me know that he used to own that guitar from around 2000-2010 and was interested in getting it back...

    Help me date and authenticate this bass.

    Hard to make out the serial number. From what I understand, the pickup cover should be nickel, but appears to be chrome. Also the thumb rest is not what you usually see on one this old. Possibly non original parts? Your help is appreciated...

    Vintage SG Special Question: Filling in Humbucker routes on a transparent finish

    As the title suggests, I'm looking for info on people's experience with filling humbucker routes back to P-90 size routes. How do the new blocks blend (or not blend) into a transparent cherry (or aged walnut/faded cherry). How sharp were the lines? I've seen this done with a Polaris White refin...

    What do we know about this 2002 Epi flame burst model?

    It sure looks pretty as hell. I don't think I'll buy it because I need a couple PC upgrades sooner rather than later, but dang it looks nice. https://reverb.com/item/28420730-2002-epiphone-sg-400-flamed-top

    Gibson SG Standard 1967 repaired headstock appraisal

    Hi everyone, I am considering buying this Gibson SG Standard 1967. I'd say the guitar condition is Very Good, considering the following: > Broken headstock repaired probably in the '80s. > Mother-of-pearl crown/flower on the headstock partially re-drawn (non-original crown/flower base size). >...

    FS: 1964 SG Junior

    I have my hesitations about this one, but I just got a 1960 LP Junior and need to raise some funds, plus this one has the most overlap with the new addition (Cherry finish, single P-90, slab of mahogany, etc.). It's a 1964 SG Junior and it's a really great playing guitar. It does have unfilled...

    I've got something "Special" on the way and need to make a little room. First up is my 1966 Gibson SG Melody Maker in original Pelham Blue finish.
