    Abr-1 non wire buzz and saddle screw loose

    I've searched the forum and there does not appear to be a definitive fix, aside from replacing the bridge... I am very nearly joining my bridge in having a screw loose over this guitar... And for the love of Christ please don't suggest visiting a guitar tech... not gonna drive 90 minutes and...

    61r/t vs BB1/2 swap... Does anyone like that bridge pup?

    Just something about the alnico v that would either break up too much or too little... I ended up with the pickups so low they nearly fell back into the body :-P... The bridge 61 caused me all kinds of misery trying for a tone that just could not be coaxed from it... The original recipe...

    61r/t vs BB1/2 swap... Does anyone like that bridge pup?

    I drove myself nuts going up and down on pickup height. Maybe they sound better with 9's? I don't feel like putting them back in to find out, but $215 and shipping you can! ;)

    61r/t vs BB1/2 swap... Does anyone like that bridge pup?

    Could be that the amplifier made it sound that way... I was just absolutely unable to get the clear but dirty sound Duane had from his Marshall from the stock setup and it was hugely disappointing for me. What are/were you playing through?

    61r/t vs BB1/2 swap... Does anyone like that bridge pup?

    So I am now the happy and rather relieved owner of a 2 month old 60s standard with the aforementioned pickup swap. I was trying everything I could fathom to get a tone other than Billy Corgan singing while pinching his nose shut from the 61t .. ended up finding a set of alnico ii OG...

    Crack in 2 week old standard 60's?

    Don't laugh the first time i wiped her down with a damp cloth, I used distilled water. I love my MiM strat, the lake placid blue is more of a Chicago blue. But other than cleaning the fretboard, I have never wiped the body down in over 4 years. I work for a Railroad, so perhaps you can...

    Crack in 2 week old standard 60's?

    It's a poor picture with everything reflecting on itself but below the neck where it flares out into the body.

    Crack in 2 week old standard 60's?

    Not sure if you're serious or sarcastic. After admiring the damn thing as a work of art I was cleaning it with the newly arrived gibson magic spray and just noticed it. I'm a bit naive with Gibson necks and when I saw that I thought the damn 7650 feet and dry as fuck air did something, or that I...

    Crack in 2 week old standard 60's?

    Nah, this is my first USA made guitar since I was a dumb kid with who pawned my '92 G&L legacy for dope some 10 years and a lifetime ago. I've never owned a Gibson, always wanted a Les Paul and I saved up enough to buy it in cash. I'm obviously stoked about it, though worried about dragging it...

    Crack in 2 week old standard 60's?

    Indeed, that's a reflection. The part someone helpfully circled is what worried me. Thanks for the help everyone. :-)

    Crack in 2 week old standard 60's?

    No, never dropped or hit hard. I just noticed it while wiping the guitar down and kinda freaked out.
