    It's a spacer. They're on every ES295 i've seen. The big ones might be wood. I'm gonna make one out of garolite.

    Non fake and unbroken neck plus unforgiven for every removable part being changed.
    Played hard and put away wet it seems, with well intended but poorly executed mods. Plus it was a second to begin with.

    I do have two Gibson copies, a MIJ Ventura Trini Lopez copy and this surprisingly great sounding Chinese F style.
    Had a real 1917 A years ago.
    Old Hickory likes to hang with muh washtub bass.

    Love the old Mandolins. My 1918 F4 sounds just amazing after 101 years.

    Guess I've just not noticed them. Do the pickups just sit too deep without one? Seems like an odd thing to need.

    1955 Super 400. The serial number puts it between February and mid-March of that year and one of at least 7 made in sunburst and the first year with the Alnico V 480 a.k.a. "staple" pickups. Yes, I do play out with it but I don't play in bars, so, you know...

    OK.
    I have four (real) Gibson Les Pauls.
    I only play three of them.
    My R6 gold top is awaiting new Kinman 480 pickups, so it’s currently a case queen.
    Ironically, I like the neck on it best.
    I’m a big neck kinda guy.
    Of the three I play, my most recent acquisition is my favorite.
    It’s a 2005 Faded Les Paul Std.
    It has the 60s neck.
    It’s previous owner put a cool old real “Les Paul” truss rod cover from an early 60s Les Paul (SG) on it, and upgraded the bridge and tailpiece.
    They lock on, I don’t know what brand they are.
    He also buffed it out, it’s shinier than any other Faded I’ve seen.
    I don’t know what kind of pickups are in it.
    Next time I restring it, I’ll see.
    It’s not real heavy, it’s the lightest of the four.
    It sounds, and looks great!
    The top is pretty active lookin’.
    Here it is, with two of it’s predecessors.
    The other two are a 2005 LP Premium Plus and a 2007 1968 Les Paul Custom.
    Both are boat anchors.

    Ah, hickory... I was reading it as Old Hairy...

    Anyone else getting a vivid mental image of Gibson HQ with Mark Agnesi as a Jack Bauer style special agent, 'ok, we got a counterfeit just broke surface on Tdpri, triangulate that IP address and run @telemnemonics though the alias database NOW!'

    My CS ’63 Block reissue from the Nashville factory. It has seen many gigs and is my main guitar for the orchestra pit gig that I’m doing right now:

    My most favorite is an acoustic. I have a few others, none quite so spectacular as a legendary LP, or some of those amazing ES hollow and semi hollows. An 80's SG, a recent studio LP, a CJ-165 and a '63 Discoverer amp. Here's my fave, an Advanced Jumbo, bought it used, great deal, etc. but exactly what I like in a dread acoustic. Responsive and to me, sounds amazing.

    And I have to add this photo. My best bud for 12 years, all dog, gentle and kind with all people. I named him Gibson. Had to say goodbye this April.

    It was originally his grandfathers, and Crosby auctioned it off in the early 80s when he was having problems.
