  1. Thanks Daniel, knowing what beautiful guitars you have, that's a real compliment. I swapped out the gold for nickel as I wanted to make it just that little bit unique, also putting the more standard bridge in - it's a great guitar
  2. here's mine Since this was taken the colour seems to have mellowed into a more honey colour.
  3. @ Houndhome a very nice example of a 555, thanks for posting, they are special order only now. I think mine is a 1992.
  4. Well, who wants all their guitars to sound the same anyway? but no, I don't hear much difference either, and on top of that a quality guitar should have its own voice in the first place.
  5. If I could chose an H150, it would more than likely be this one. I don't know who it belongs to, I found it on the net but what a finish. Just thought I'd share it.
  6. My 555 in natural. I changed from gold hardware to nickel - the wood is more honey coloured now. and the back, showing tiger maple neck
  7. I own a 555 but would be very happy with a 535. I bought the 555 because it was available. Both are knock out guitars and you would enjoy either. Good luck and post some pictures. I was actually looking for a 535 when I found the 555, but Heritage guitars are hard to come by in the UK, there is not much selection. often it's a case of what is available rather than what you prefer.
  8. I will bow to superior knowledge and experience in this case, I know you are well clued in on this stuff. I guess I am somewhat anti Gibbons as they are now and perhaps forget the good stuff they made. I particularly like your two L5S.
  9. Rob, that's a fabulous looking guitar, congratulations on owning it.
  10. I found this picture on the net. In my personal opinion, it's too good looking to put a scratch plate on. My 555 has a matching wood scratch plate to the body so it doesn't stand out so much. Scratch plates should be on Tele's, Strats, SG's and similar. Other opinions are available.
  11. That looks fantastic, I hope you enjoy it for many years to come.
  12. Here's my 555, now gone a lovely honey colour!
  13. I saw this myself recently on the same site, when I get my Gretsch I'm going to have to have one of those truss rod covers!
  14. Brand power, nothing more.
