    Round Core or Hex Core Strings on your Les Paul?

    After 40 yers of playing I just recently realized there is a tone difference between round core and hex core guitar strings. Ive been using round core GHS strings forever but recently Guitar Center was out of stock on them so I picked up some Ernie Ball 009-046 Super Slinky in the meantime. I...

    Are the Gibson Burstbuckers 1 & 2 Pickups in the new Les Paul 50's Standard potted or unpotted?

    Thats strange. I would have guessed they were unpotted from the open sound and clarity im getting. Its strange that the after market version is unpotted. Not sure the logic there. Anyway thanks for letting me know. They are great guitars. Here is mine.

    Neck Profile Difference between Custom Shop 1959 Reissue vs USA 50's Standard?

    Well the other day I went to the shop where I got y 2020 USA Standard and compared it to the 2020 59 Reissue and to me the 59 felt a whole lot more comfortable. Both guitar had a .89 measurements at the 1st fret. The whole guitar was a big step up in playing feel, tone, resonance, quality...

    Neck Profile Difference between Custom Shop 1959 Reissue vs USA 50's Standard?

    Ok thats what I was wondering. For example if you have a Standard with .89 at the 1st fret which feels big to me and a R9 with .89 at the first fret the R9 won't feel as chunky because the profiles are different. Cool...

    New 2109 Gibson Les Paul Standard has chip under pickgaurd.
