    Hey there everyone!

    About 4 months ago I received a new-to-me 2011 Gibson Tbird Limited Cherry IV. Here's the original NBD threads about it for reference:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f18/got-some-repairs-do-my-gibson-977633/

    Well 4 months later and some recent correspondence with Jason at Hipshot and here's the results:

    -All dings and dents repaired
    -Fretboard crack fixed, fretboard oiled
    -Gorilla glued straploks removed, area repaired and schallers added
    -Hipshot Supertone
    -Chrome 'Gibson' truss cover added
    -New mini clover leaf tuners
    -Circle K Strings Balanced .136 set added

    *The tuners are a new product from Hipshot I guess. They're meant to provide a clover leaf style alternative for Tbird owners that doesn't crowd the headstock. Give Hipshot a call for more info (no affiliation).

    Kudos to TB'er TBird1958 for bringing these tuners to my attention in the Tbird Club and Kudos to Jason at Hipshot for making it happen! Finally, a BIG shout out to Mike Koontz Guitar Shop in Ferndale, MI for the repairs; look 'em up- totally recommended if your in the area!:bassist:

    This is exactly the sound and vision I had in my head for what a Tbird should be. Couldn't be happier with it! :cool:

    That came out beautiful!

    Really glad to see Hipshot do those new tuners, great combination of vintage aesthetic and modern sensibility.
    Rock that bass!
