I have it on my Gibsons and Fenders as well.  I assume it's because of the grain filler flattening/shrinking over time, or some part of the finishing process going too quickly.......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post New Hammett's Pickups ? Confirmed ?

I was being serious.  Finding either a new LPC, or a late 80s in really nice condition is around $4k.  A new Historic Les Paul in an odd finish is probably closer to $6k.  Parts are around another $3-500. ......MORE »

It's pretty common to see the seams between pieces of the wood.  That happens often on guitars that don't have a very thick finish.  IMO, a slightly thinner finish is a good thing.......MORE »

There's a bit of variation between my Eclipses, but  they're nice medium-thin necks.  They match up well to the shape of my 89 Custom and my late 70s Les Pauls.  The shape is very similar, nice and round, no......MORE »

Around 2005.  But that's not totally correct, either.  In the late 90s, the Eclipses were "Les Paul" shaped but semi-hollow bodies with bolt-on necks and 3 knobs.  They had the more rounded cutaway, similar to......MORE »
