This is how mine turned out, sorry for thread jack!
Nice choice, I noticed the same thing about my R7 neck. Not nearly as fat as I would have expected. Playability is excellent and sounds amazing to me.
Here's my 03' R7 with a BRF the day it arrived before a set up. -Cheers
There's gold in them hills boys!
Congrats on that beautiful GT!
Wow! That top is amazing, I can't believe they used an opaque finish on it.
Had a "recent years" Gold Top / PAFs reissue, worst Les Paul I've ever owned to play in studio work. Could not stay in tune, intonation was off after the 12th fret (I'm a Luthier and could not fix it perfect), RI PAF's were terrible / thin sounding (I have an original 62 LP Custom SG as seen in my avatar with real PAF's to compare with). Dumped it on a pimply kid who liked it (for the looks no doubt) ASAP and bought a nice black used '81 LP Standard and installed S Duncan "60 PAF Classics" in it and it became "GOLD" in content instead of only color. The only good Gold Tops are the 80-90's reissues with Soapbars.
Thanks, I thought it was a wise purchase considering the tone I want may be within grasp on this guitar.
It's already nice with the stock components, and an out of phase mod. Here's what I'm going to do though.
1. Mojo has CTS vintage taper pots with loose turning action.
2. Bought original 50's PIO bumblebee caps 0.022uF.
3. Faber ABRH bridge.
4. Brass thumbwheels 6-32 in correct brass alloy.
5. Brass posts.
6. Vintage length long stud bolts in steel.
7. Vintage length stud bolt anchors in steel.
8. Kluson aluminum lightweight stop bar.
9. 50's wiring configuration.
10. Stephens Design HD 59' replica set.
I can't praise Dave Stephens enough or his pups. He was very personable and helpful in making a plan for this guitar. I will post when I atleast get the 50's wiring and vintage caps in to make a comparison. I am curious to hear the final product with Dave's pups for sure though. -Thanks
