    Buying a more modern faster playing Gibson?

    Les Paul was a pretty fast player on his day on a baseball bat neck. I suggest the SG as well. What do I know I’m equally as slow on a fat or skinny neck.

    Converting a new tribute to sound like a new standard 50's?

    You could get a pair of burst buckers with the quick connects on Reverb. You could also pull the PCB and hand wire new pots/caps and use traditionally wired Burst Buckers. The Tribute won’t sound like a $2500 Les Paul but with a pickup swap it will be 90% close. If you can live with that then...

    What Epiphone pickups are these? Braided wire?

    I bought a set of Epiphone ProBuckers off a chinese seller on eBay a year ago for $49. They were the real deal. While it’s possible to fake a set of Epiphone ProBuckers, the time and effort to make the ones in question leads you to believe they are the real deal. It’s possible. But who would...

    Pick Up Height

    Watch Uncle Joes video. I start with the pickup heights fairly low then adjust up from there until it sounds like Awesome.

    Going to check out a Les Paul today

    I’m jealous of you folks being able ot walk into a GC and walk out with a guitar. I should have learned to play right handed guitars instead of lefties.

    Translucent Cherry Classic has arrived... Any owners?

    My Classic has the Gibson 61s which really sounded nice in the LP. I didn’t have the same great tone with those pickups in an SG. To me the 61s have that vintage PAF tone with a bit more bite, but that bite is tamed by the larger LP body compared to the SG. I didn’t care about the push pulls but...

    Dawsons Music Update.

    Sorry mate that’s crap. Maybe small claims court? Might be worth the court fee to get your money back.

    Dawsons Music Update.

    Shit happens. Covid blew up a lot of businesses. They definitely owe you the 200 tho regardless of the new owners or not.

    Translucent Cherry Classic has arrived... Any owners?

    I had one (2020) - swapped the bridge pickup for a T-Top clone - sold the guitar for financial reasons - wishing I didn’t do that. Great guitar you’ll love it.

    Have you considered black top hat knobs with gold inserts? That might just work with that top. Also consider burstbucker 2/3 combo or a TTop bridge and burstbucker 1 neck.

    My 60's Standard Has Returned

    I keep whatever nut is installed unless I can’t make it work for me. Then it’s Bone. Bone is an excellent choice. You’re right it’s absolutely an improvement

    Burstbucker Pro is awful!

    Magnet swap. Put in alnico II magnets. Bam! Now you have Burstbucker 3.
