Looking inside the body at the woods used and the wiring were dead giveaways though.

What you get is not what is pictured. You will get a black archtop guitar with gold hardware that says Gibson on the headstock but it may be shaped like a Jay Turser and the quality is another story

  6. I bought a Gibson Les Paul Supreme for $380 delivered to my door. Amazing how Gibson can build them so cheap over there.
  7. I did that once, but not to a guitar.

  9. I am thinking of changing my screen name. I am either going with pagecannotbedisplayed or waitingforacapella.harmony-central.com.
  10. Don't feel like the lone ranger. I just did the same on an Ibanez and found the wires so thin I couldn't pull the pots back into place without wires breaking off at the soldered connection. Mine took a little longer than yours ... I got so pissed off after 2 failed attempts (broken wires each time) I just threw it back in the case and left it for 2 years! Finally got around to fixing it back up a couple weeks ago with new full size pots an0 open frame switch and heavier gauge wiring. Glad to hear your Corsair turned out well. Those are very cool guitars.

  12. Ibanez AS93 if it had Super 58's instead of the ACH1 and ACH2 Pickups.
  13. There is an ebay seller that has them. I bought a couple to replace the ones missing on my '71 Sears SS Twin-twelve before I sold it. Almost an exact match.
  14. Funny that you should say that. When I watched the video, I thought it remarkable that the first 3 guitars looked so alike. My ears told me otherwise. Obviously, tone is the ears of the beholder but I definitely heard the differences. Build and finish quality aside, the buyer has to decide if the difference in price justifies the difference in tone alone, build and finish quality aside.
