    (Now NGD) Thoughts on this Les Paul Classic? Very unusual top.

    Sloppy tailpiece fit on Firebird studs

    Update: TonePros locking studs did the trick! They don't seem to make gold anymore so I had to find some on Reverb.

    Sloppy tailpiece fit on Firebird studs

    Yeah, I actually bought some Tone-Lock studs, but they are too long for the Firefird. Can you recommend a stud/tailpiece combo that would have tighter tolerances and be compatible with Firebirds?

    Sloppy tailpiece fit on Firebird studs

    That's cool if you have the tools! I spent the $40 on the Tone-Lock studs instead :p

    Sloppy tailpiece fit on Firebird studs

    Well it wouldn't matter if the tailpiece fit more snugly in the studs, and it's not like top wrapping is a new thing. There's so much less contact between the tailpiece and studs this way. I guess that's the reason the Faber Tone-Lock studs exist though. See the attached pic for the...

    Sloppy tailpiece fit on Firebird studs

    I purchased a 2017 Firebird HP from the Gibson Demo Shop about a year ago, and I've noticed that the stopbar tailpiece is very loose in the studs (see pic). It's loose enough that it's actually tilting within the bushings (I prefer top-wrapping, the studs themselves are fine). Is it possible...

    WTB: Candy Apple Blue Les Paul

    I love this color. I think there have been a few different runs: a CME exclusive '57 reissue, a Wildwood '57 reissue, and possibly a Joe Bonamassa custom? Let me know if anyone has one they're looking to part with, thanks!

    Joe Bonamassa Gibson Les Paul in Candy Apple Blue

    Joe actually has light sensitivity and can't see without them under the stage lights. He's talked about this multiple times.

    WTB/TF: OX attenuator

    If you just need an attenuator there are much cheaper options. If you want something similar but 1/3 the price, check out the Two Notes Captor X. I got mine for $450 on Reverb, super happy with it.

    SOLD..... 2019 gibson trad pro v

    Of course I have, but I wouldn't buy an American Ultra series fat Strat, rip out the humbucker and noiseless pickups to install Texas Specials and then say "this is how a Strat SHOULD be", I would just buy an original 50s Strat and leave the Ultras to those who like it without criticizing.

    SOLD..... 2019 gibson trad pro v

    Why not just buy a regular Les Paul then? No need to criticize guitar that was made for a different purpose.
