"The Dirty" is my kind of top!

Looks to be a really great LP, how does it play/sound?

Get the SG196, totally worth the extra money. Upgraded hardware and electronics: aluminum tailpiece, brass saddles better pots and toggle switch, upgraded tuners Also the wood is sorted for weight and grain, guitar is lighter and more resonant. Lacquer finish etc. I agree - the SG196 has stuff that...

can you answer my question ? Sorry I didn't realise it was genuine question. But, I wouldn't know what a great song is - I like what I like, and think those songs are great. If great means sold a lot of copies then no I've written none, but there's been a lot of shite that's sold truckloads! :lol: ...

Yeah I shouldn't have said that, it's meaningless. Why would anyone care who likes what band or whatever.

Unfortunately that diagram is in mm, and many fret sizes are quoted in inches - hard to easily compare. Isn't it best to go slightly larger when you do a re-fret anyway? Here's one opinion on fret stuff: http://www.lutherie.net/fret.chart.html The Jescar EVO type wire sounds like a good option over ...

Well it's a relief to hear that your new 335 actually works as a guitar. It would not have surprised me if it turned out that the thing couldn't be intonated due to incorrect bridge placement or something. Even if it had been useless, it's not that much to pay for some fan art to go on your wall! Gl...

Priced like an LS-80 :(

Maybe it could be an LS-80? From the pictures I can't definitively say there's a centre seam in the body, but there's no sign that there was fret edge nibs that were removed with a re-fret.
So I guess LS-60 is right.

Nice looking LS though.

the headstock shape had a center dimple similar to Korean made models, so they could not be mistaken for a LP in any way
Legally they could easily be mistaken for a LP because the test is about what most people would assume from seeing the silhouette or outline on the TV or at a concert. Most people know ^&*( about guitars and they would easily make the mistake.

Nobody would order any volume off them because of Gibson putting pressure on dealers/distros.
Reborn Old wrote:G!bson borrowed styling cues from Fender and other brands for some of it's model line, which I personally have no problem with, other than it being hypocritical suing other manufacturers for doing the same sort of things.
They are so hypocritical, and arrogant to presume that they have the right to own one of only a few comfortable shapes in which to make a guitar. And it looks like a small body acoustic with a cut away anyway.

Fender, when it comes to legal bullshit or putting illegitimate pressure on people, also suck.
