A while back, I picked up a 2013 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro II in goldtop. As I posted previously, I gutted the electronics, replaced pots and wiring - eliminating the onboard boost system - and wired it 50's style. Later, I replaced the rotted bridge, with a TonePros TOM bridge. While I was doing that, I upgraded the tuners to Grover 18:1 kidney-style rotos and the stoptail to a TonePros as well. All hardware is now nickel instead of chrome. A few weeks ago, I ordered new pickups. I wanted to try Bare Knuckle Black Dogs and found a set with double-cream bobbins for what I considered a bargain. I installed them the day after they arrived... and sadly, rushed the job. By that, I mean I don't know how to solder well in the first place and ended up not only with a mess, but a bad ground or cold solder somewhere. Last weekend I decided to do it right. Braided, shielded wire, a bit of heat shrink, new switch, 500k Mojotone pots and oil caps. I watched a shitload of videos, practiced soldering, and took my time. It came out sounding great. I feel strongly enough about this guitar now that I named her... Mae West. I think Mae West was just old-school sexy. Here's photos of her, I can take photos of the wiring later if anyone is interested. Excuse the crappy cell photos, please.
