New guy :)

Hey everyone, just joined, found site looking for info on one of my guitars, I have several, from the Gibson family I have a GK-55, a J-50, and an Ephiphone EA250. Iíll meet everybody first, then start asking questions. I had 4 or 5 guitars before inheriting 4 or 5 more from my Dad, I guess the crown jewel is a 1960 Strat my Dad had owned since 1963, itís a guitar Iíve played my whole life, donít play it as much as some others that play better right now my dad always had thick flat wounds on it and I havenít messed with it since I got it, thanks for letting me join

Hi and welcome to this place.

Best first point of contact for info on any of your guitars is always the manufacture. Assuming it's Gibson they try them. They will need to see pics of the guitar including serial no. They have always answered my questions.

Good luck

Sorry, I don't know, but there's nothing to lose by asking Gibson. They can only say they don't know

Welcome to Gibson-Talk! Actually, Gibson does a pretty fine job of responding to our petty requests. But frankly, I wouldn't expect those screws to match.
