    Replacement knobs for Epiphone

    One thing I noticed about the course spline pots Epiphone used on my Wilshires, they put the knobs pretty high off the top of the guitar, where as the fine spline pots put the knobs .050" or so. And like others have mentioned, the fine splined knobs won't fit the course splined pots and vice-versa.

    What year did they make this? (E422T)

    From what I know about vintage Wilshires, the bikini logo (the white and gold metal headstock badge) went out of use in very early 61, in fact I've only ever seen one example of a 61 with the bikini logo. The New York pickups ran out in late 59, so that narrows yours down to either 58 or 59...

    Epiphone Price Jumping

    I bought my cherry Wilshire back in August of 2021 for $449, I just bought a black Wilshire and payed $499, yepp, price jump. But I still think the black Wilshire was a heck of a deal considering how good it is.

    Thanks! I was waiting for someone to ask about the mods, I had the guitar for four days before I did the first wave of mods. First, I made a custom pickguard out of Lexan that would mount Firebird pickups, painted the underside a gunmetal metallic (in person the flake pops nicely), then rewired...

    What are those sellers smoking ?

    It's possible that some of these overpriced guitars are owned by married men, married men who's wives tell them, "you have too many guitars, sell some of them so I can buy more shoes" married man says, "I don't want to sell off my guitars" so married man says "what if I put them up for sale but...

    Silly people living near you

    You just described the house next door to me, thankfully there's a vacant lot between their house and mine. It isn't really their house, they rent. From what I can tell, they've been running a boarding house. I've seen as many as 12 people (and a hoopty car parked out in the street for each of...
