    What is your honest opinion about the LP Modern?

    Played one, and it wasn't right for me. I am not saying it's a bad guitar, just not for my hand. And to "broken headstock blues singing..... (uhhh, can I call someone an idiot here?) Look on ebay for "project guitars" you will see on a page of 50 guitars and the like, and there will be 15...

    Hey Roxy, ground the center tab on the tone pot. An alligator clip can do for testing. Have fun!

    DiMarzio Super Distortion???

    No, you have a Dual Sound. it's a ground wire, the bare one, and a white and a black. Now pay attention here it get's tricky. Either wire is hot, depending on the phase of the other pickup. It originally came with a 2 way on/on switch to switch phase. You know, that thin nasally sound from the...

    Other than the headstock logo, why do Chibsons get so much hate?

    Ummm.... has anybody else noticed quite a few repliers to this thread, has been here for years and years, with only 10 or 15 messages, and they seem to be on the side of chibsons?

    What would your wife do with your Les Paul(s) if you died?

    Personally, I don't care what she does with them. I'm dead.

    Other than the headstock logo, why do Chibsons get so much hate?

    I personally don't have an issue with a Chinese made guitar. My Eastman El Rey is made in China, and it's an amazing guitar. A few Ibanez's I have are MIC, and great guitars in their own right. Now a Chibson is another story. I don't care if you buy one, knowing what it is. You will be putting...

    I HAVE all those I named and about 40 more. Anything I needed done to those listed, I did. And there is nothing wrong in getting something Gibson doesn't offer. It's called buying ANOTHER brand. Don't like Gibson? Buy a Guild. Or a Gretsch. Maybe a Fender. Don't have that kind of money...

    Let's see..... let's go beyond the legalities and morals of buying a guitar meant to deceive. And I am sure the OP would NEVER buy one, then try to pass it off in the local CL as real. But as a cheap guitar, it's just that. A CHEAP guitar. MUCH closer to the sub 150 mark then the sub 500 mark...

    Luthier for a professional fret level in Florida?

    I would give a call to Jimmy's Vintage Music down in Auburndale. I am sure he knows the right person.

    Locking roller bridge.

    Added them to a guitar or two that had a Bigsby, no real issue. I have one on a Peerless Retromatic that doesn't have a trem, and while it's not a negative, I don't see the purpose of having one on a guitar that DOESN'T have a trem.
