    String Compliance Question

    All my LP’s have the stopbar all the way down. And the height of the bridge is the same as my others. I think the high nut slots may be the culprit. I may have to grab a file and bust a nut (slot)!

    String Compliance Question

    Hi everyone, I am not a luthier, but suspect that a luthier might be able to answer this question. I’m a happy owner of many LP’s, but one in particular has a particularly troublesome feature- no matter what strings I put on it, it feels incredible taught, and difficult to bend (I guess you’d...

    Overpriced is an understatement. And re: the top- different strokes for different folks, I guess.

    Timbuckers in 2020?

    Timbuckers refer to pickups from the early to mid ‘00’s wound by Tim White, who had a 2 year waitlist when he stopped winding in 2008. People back then touted them as being incredible. Since then, the boutique pickup market has exploded, and I’m wondering: a) whether anyone still uses them...

    This reminds me of a certain...ummm...throwback of a conversation. Joking aside, this thread piqued my interest and I picked up a used set of Custom Shop Pearly’s...I’ll post my thoughts on how they compare to my other PAF repro sets when they arrive.

    Your favorite Throbak PAF and why?

    PG-102’s, SLE-101’s, and KZ-115’s are all dynamite. ER-Customs were a little too low-mid-ish for my Les Pauls, but would probably rock in an ES-335. I’ve been meaning to try the MT-102b’s...someday soon.

    NGD Momose MLS1-STD2/R GT...........en route

    I couldn't justify getting it- had just gotten a nearly-identical Bacchus Classic GT with P90s.
