The only thing that made it a hard repair was he had lost some of the black veneer, you wouldn't even know it had broken if you were to play it now

yeah i've seen some good repairs locally. my local guy is good, but he's not cheap, $300 before matching the finish. but it's fixed very well.

The only broken LP I ever encountered. The kid had to throw it against the wall to break it.

They really aren't that delicate if you just get on with it. Its just something people always bitch about. Its bollocks.

They arent made of unicorn spunk. Its also an easy repair, just play them and if your one of the very very very small minority of owners who suffers a break, repair it.


B. l. A. S. P. H. E. M. Y! Take it away!

What's the cost of a crazy repair like that?

I know it most likely won't happen, but I'd rather not risk it. Not because it's my favourite, I don't which one is but it's the one that will be the most ****ed up if it happened.

I just think it's too expensive to take risks with. Not very rock & roll but whatever.

I've only had it a few months, In 10 years I'll probably use it to shovel snow or something else that's equally careless.

at least it was a cheap one.

a well repaired headstock is stronger after the repair folks, glue = stronger than wood.

A man Colin might know named Greg Ginter owns a vintage shop in Madison. I bought my first Les Paul from him. It was a limited run, the Epiphone 70's Custom. I had talked to him a few times before and he knew I was a Strat guy. He told me when I bought that LP that, "Be careful. When you drop a Strat, you pick it up. When you drop a Les Paul, you fix it."

I'm a little confused....... Is everything with the "Les Paul" shape considered a Les Paul?
From the first page, I was under the impression we were talking about Gibson Les Pauls'.

The Les Paul Book refers to that 61 model as the SG/Les Paul. Of course, Les Paul let them put his name on it for the royalties, but I don't think Les Paul played that model.

The SG is great for slide, but for everything else, the original design is better.

i'm not a huge fan of the bolt on versions myself. but if it plays well you have to decide for yourself. i cant imagine a repaired bolt on being worth much if you decided to sell it at a later point. so i'd be careful. what is your budget? location? other options?

i just ran through some of the history of gibsons briefly.

any brand is fine though, we aren't limiting it to gibsons.

Don't really have a set budget, as I don't know my paycheck for next week. It won't be a hell of a lot, and this caught my eye. Im really looking for a LP or a guitar with a Floyd Rose, and I found a Cort with a floyd and emgs for $150 on my local kijiji, and it looks really good, so I might pick it up next week if I can.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibson_SG

n 1961, Gibson Les Paul sales were significantly lower than in previous years. The following year, the Les Paul was given a thinner, flat-topped mahogany body, and had a double cutaway which made the upper frets more accessible... Although the new guitar was popular, Les Paul himself did not care for the new design, and requested the removal of his name from the new model. He remained under contract to Gibson, however, and he was photographed with the new model several times.

Gibson honored Les Paul's request, and the new model was renamed "SG", which stood for 'Solid Guitar'. Les Paul's name was officially deleted in 1961, but the SG continued to feature Les Paul nameplates and truss rod covers until the end of 1963.

I always thought this, thanks to an old band mate who worshiped Angus Young I always dismissed them, then I bought my Derek Trucks, which incidentally is what made Kyle buy that SG.

They are seriously nice guitars and they just sound so raw and aggressive. I would probably take Colins (or my old Trucks) over any Non RI Les Paul now.

Yeah definitely, they are making some amazing guitars, though I haven't played many from 2011/12 yet.

My favourite Les Paul I have played was the VOS Kossof they did. Incredible thing.

It's a '61 Reissue, but I think I determined it's from 2006.

I'd like to hear the rationale for this.
