Topic: A USEFUL MESSAGE
I have an old Gibson LP custom original 1968.
The serialnumber is referring to 1967.
I mailed Gibson, and the answer was that they started to re-make that LP Custom line end 1967, but on the market in 1968.
This story is useful because if you have an old guitar, and some parts are changed, like an EMG on an expensive Gibson, which you want to sell.
Even a very old and perfect sounding guitar with other tuners, other knobs, in fact any part can be realised. There is a guy called "THE PARTSDRAWER""who has thousands of guitar parts, he expected a 300.000$ shipment.
So if you need a new part, that's the guy.
It's just INFORMATION, and it can be really hard to have a valuable guitar with replaced parts.
30-40 years ago guitar players wanted better stuff, and who could look in the future?
I searched for weeks, even months to find back my original 1968 humbuckers, and my daughter found them recently: a patent nr 2,737,842 (isn't that a PAF?) but the second is a DiMarzio, not in production before 1969-1970.
I hope this info can be useful for some of us. I looked so long on the most impossible site, until I found that guy.
