gibson LP SG reissues

can anyone tell me why these reissues with the Lyre tailpiece have been discontinued? They are still available from the historic custom shop for a ridiculous price of 2799.00 but they discontinued the "regular" model which was around 1799.00. They are only available with the stop tailpiece. If I was going to spend almost 3000.00 for a reissue why wouldnt I just come up with another 2 grand and get a real one? Of course Gibson wont answer me cause I am a nobody. Anybody out there know the facts on why this guitar wa discontinued?

Re: gibson LP SG reissues

This is a multi-pronged question. First, we're all somebody at Gibson. That's why they have the customer info line 1-800-4-GIBSON. I talk to them frequently. The "guys" have told me before they just don't know anything. The company doesn't let then know this kind of information, so they can't tell us. Their scope is more technical. If they knew the answers, I'd trust them to tell us. Gibson is much more open & friendly than many of the other biggies.

Generally, Gibson wants to keep their offerings simple, and appealing (in both features and price) to the mass market. Their catalogues recently have shown only 4 Les Pauls and 4 SG's. LP Custom, Standard, Classic, Studio. SG Supreme, Standard, Special, Junior. Actually, there are SG 61 reissues & have been other LP models with all of the flametop issues, burstbuckers etc. but I haven't seen them listed? That's strange ... some US stores have added them to their own catalogues. But I haven't seen a lyre or vibrola tailpiece in awhile, except as you know from the historic shop. For some reason, these and other "reissues" which are deemed not for the masses, are aimed at connoiseurs who might be able to fork out the extra $2,000. It's a marketing thing for sure. Limited numbers, higher prices, old trick, I guess?

But, I wonder, I think I've seen recent Epiphones out there, like a white SG with gold hardware and vibrola. Anyone else? Strat Man (and Gibson Hotrodder) Dwight

buying a guitar

I'm looking to purchase a left handed guitar. I am a beginner. I'm not sure what is the best type to buy for the money. Can someone help me out?

Re: buying a guitar

My earlier reply went to the moderator. Must have been a problem with a key word, I'm still trying to figure it out. Maybe I used the name of a certain Country? Just one word (one more word) THIS time. Yamaha. Strat Man Dwight

Knobs

Anybody know where i can but a replacement knob for a Peavey T-15

Re: Knobs

The replacement you are looking for will match with many other Peavey models. If you don't have a dealer or multiple dealers in your area or territory (don't be afraid to call long distance or email) you might have to rely on ebay with the appropriate search. For such an unusual and specific part, it takes some effort and hopefully you will be rewarded with success. Of course other knobs, generic, chrome dome etc. would fit if you did not require an exact match. Strat Man Dwight

Can anyone help me identify this guitar?

The seller claims it is a Teisco Del Ray from the 60's. But I can't find a similar Del Ray anywhere on the net. So, do anyone of you have any ideas?

You'll find pictures here:
http://www.stefansen.org/guitar/guitar.htm

I would appreciate any help I can get. This is driving me crazy. :)

Re: Can anyone help me identify this guitar?

I'm almost as curious as you. It certainly has Teisco features and lineage. Maybe a SS-4L or perhaps a later Guyatone?

There is one man for sure who can tell. He is Michael Wright from Vintage Guitar Books, Bismarck, North Dakota USA, tel (701)255-1197 fax recommended: (701) 255-0250. Perhaps you have seen his article linked to the Teisco Twanger's website? He will find your answer, please let us know, or post it on your site when the mystery is solved. Nice site of your own by the way! Canada's Strat Man & Historian Dwight

Re: Can anyone help me identify this guitar?

Hi Dwight,

Thank your for your compliments and tips. I have never visited Teisco Twanger's site before, but I am there now. :) I am going to read Michael Wright's article, if I can find it. And, I will try to get in touch with him and ask him for his help.

Will let you know what happens.

Thanks!

Re: A recommended forum

Sounds like a nice forum. And I too will always defend the grrrrreeeaaaaattttt Gibson, 24 hours a day, 8 days a week, 400 days a year etc. etc. or my name isn't Strat Man Dwight. Actually, others called me that, and it certainly fit, but did I mention I hot rod Gibsons? Of course I did. Historian, enthusiast, supporter (and what's to defend?) ... there's just no catch phrase there however.

seagull and Art&Lutherie

Anyone know what a good starter guitar would be? Seagull, Godin, Art&Lutherie? the Art and Luth. start out with a Cherry Veneer, the Seagull have a solide cedar top???

Re: seagull and Art&Lutherie

Sounds like you're in Canada and know your local guitars, right around my neighbourhood. The Seagulls will do just fine; excellent in either solid spruce or cedar, with cherrywood or mahagonay back & sides. Seagulls have a good reputation and good sound & value. Personally, I've owned 2 or 3. Godins are expensive, a little more than a beginner requires. Art & Lutherie are good too. A laminated top is easier to care for in the beginning of one's guitar experience. Also in this same family of guitars are the Normans. I had 2 of them as well. They sounded the best to me, looked the best and were priced the best. Try to get one as part of a package - like dealers often put Normans with a hardshell case and some accessories and sell for around $350 - $399 at Christmas time, beginning about now ... in November. Strat Man Dwight

Re: seagull and Art&Lutherie

Just a note, Laminate tops also favoured in some top end Electro Accoustic guitars, yamaha do some very nice laminate topped guitars, solid top is not always a pointer towards better quailty.
But on the other hand, nothing could ever beat the Gibson Hummingbird.

Re: seagull and Art&Lutherie

: Los sonidos como usted están en Canadá y saben sus guitarras locales, la derecha alrededor de mi vecindad. Las gaviotas harán la multa justa; excelente en piceas sólidas o cedro, con el cherrywood o parte posteriora y lados mahagonay. Las gaviotas tienen buenas una reputación y buen sonido y los valoran. Personalmente, he poseído 2 o 3. Godins es costoso, poco más que un principiante requiere. El arte y Lutherie son buenos también. Una tapa laminada es más fácil de cuidar para en el principio de su experiencia de la guitarra. También en esta misma familia de guitarras están los normandos. Tenía 2 de ellos también. Me sonaban el mejor, miraban el mejor y fueron tasados el mejor. Intente conseguir uno como parte de un paquete - como normandos a menudo puestos de los distribuidores con $399 un caso del hardshell y algunos accesorios y vender para alrededor $350 - en el tiempo de Navidad, comenzando sobre ahora... en noviembre.

Squier Telecaster Standard

SN IC 001117023. Can anyone tell me the year of this guitar?

Re: Squier Telecaster Standard

: SN IC 001117023. Can anyone tell me the year of this guitar?

I think you have one too many numbers in there. 8 digits after the numerals would be expected. However, I own one of these guitars and know it's origin and the facts on serial #'s. It is unexpectedly straightforward. If yours starts with 00, it is indeed stamped in the year 2000. If it happens to be 01 (because I can't tell if & where you have an extra digit) then it follows that it would be 2001. The letters signify where the actual was actually made, meaning the specific factory, not in which country here, which is stamped "made in China" on the instrument. In some cases the C actually stands for Cort. Hundreds of thousands of Squiers have been neatly, discretely made by Cort. Fender owns no property and no manufacturing facilities outside of the US & Mexico. The remainder has always been farmed out. Does this reponse seem right? Strat Man Dwight
