  • New pics of my current number 1....with real relicing!

    Thought it was about time I took some new pics of my gordon Smith GS1.

    I have owned this for about 7 years, after buying it from a guy who had bought it new a month earlier, and he played in a surf band. Finding his dream Mosrite Ventures guitar, he sold the GS1 to help towards the new guitar...lucky me!

    It's VERY light (6 lbs ish) and has a Melody Maker thickness body.

    Great sounding pick up with a really good coil split too.

    The sidewaysish pic is probably the best rendition of it's colour.

    Note also the genuine gig wear relicing, including the wear scallops to the pick up cover!

    Possibly my favourite guitar, a real workhorse that is more than earning it's keep.

















    Look at that pickup cover wear!

    That looks like a guitar that sits there and DEMANDS to be played...daily...

    Very cool MHUK...lots of mojo and cigarette smoke on that one...

      I want a gordon smith. I'd have one over a Gibson. I really want to try one of their explorers but you cannot find them anywhere!!

        She's a beaut! Unusual to see a set neck without the truss rod opening on the headstock.

          1. how do you adjust the neck? it it under the pickguard?

          2. the wear on your pickup cover... how? why?

          I guess I just dont have my pups that close to the strings.

          3. its hot!

            Truss rod adjuster is under the pickguard.

            I imagine that the wear on the pick up cover is dfrom my SS picks, as is the scratching above the strings.

            Thank you!

              clearly, the pickguard is in the wrong spot/not big enough.

                More likely the E string is rubbing the pup cover when you downpick...

                  Maybe.

                  But you guys wouldn't believe how far away from the strings the pickup is...it's barely above the mounting ring!

                  I just hit it hard I guess!

                      Look at the angle of the scratches on the body; it's from the pick, it lines right up with it.

                      Very nice looking guitar, I've been thinking about going the LP Jr route for a while now and this is an example of why they are such cool playing guitars.

                        I love all the woodgrain! For me, the beauty is in the simplicity and it's understated qualities.

                        I just purchased my very first shorter scale guitar (25" PRS = snorkeldick ). Perhaps, this will open the door for other non-25.5" scale guitars. Maybe, Gordon Smith GAS is waiting for me just around the corner.
                        I don't give a d.a.m.n about hypes, fanclubs or tonal religions. All I care about is what works for me."...it's not religion that's the problem, but any system of thought that insists that one group of people are inviolably in the right, whereas the others are in the wrong and must somehow be punished." ~ Rod LiddleJROCKBRIDGE MUSIC

                          Sweet guitar! I loves me some Jr vibe. You play a lot of power chords or something? All the wear on the pickup cover is under the two big strings

                            Yep!

                            This is primarily a punk guitar.
