My Entry.... Looking for something more in line with the 57 Classic \57 Classic+ - vintage warm PAF sound with Lower output \ more headroom, and better response from pots. Quite a drop in volume below '8'. Have not converted this guitar to 50's wiring yet. Playing a '15 Gibson Studio w\stock 490/498 pickups straight into Egnater Tweaker 15 Head & Egnater 112 Cab. Amp set for "California Clean" sound. Recorded with Samsung Phone. (fwiw..I had never touched a guitar til Aug 2014, at the tender age of 57 with no real musical background. Ran sound board for some local groups for 15yrs (and was pretty good at it too Lol ). Limited finger dexterity in Lt hand so I just really dig playing mainly background chords to songs. Thanks James and Good Luck To Everyone !
