    NGD: Gibson Es-390

    What a year! Finally found this in the color I wanted! Price was a steal Personally I associate the mini humbucker sound to Epiphone; This small full hollow body should have been an Epiphone but I’ll settle for Gibson

    NGD: Epiphone Sheraton ‘62 Reissue

    Finally! Found an awesome price and condition i wanted. I’ve owned every 1962 reissue, sans Sorrento, not knowing anything about Gibson/Epiphone and now regret selling every single one. I think this Sheraton Reissue does speak to Epiphone complete history. Original sound, classic design, and...

    Pure Nickel Round Core String: Fans?

    Firebird invisible upgrade

    Can you spot the difference? I also wanted to change the custom bridge pickup. Its sounds good it belongs on a Firebird 1 cus it doesn’t play well with the neck pu. the transition from the johnny winter neck was always jarring. I should have thought of that before this though.

    Epiphone Sheraton Coupe?

    Don’t like the name but i really wish they came out with this version of the coupe: (Gibson Es-390) With Kalamazoo headstock would be an instant classic. Now If Epiphone wanted to be bold and put a batwing headstock like a small Trini Lopez version that would be another successful route imo...

    Mini humbucker mounting screws?

    Anybody know where to get them or what what type of screws they are? I thought they were pickguard screws but the heads weren’t the right size. This is for the kind that come in wilshires and vintage Sheratons not the flat rings. thanks
