I'm still undecided on what I like the best honestly. I like the feel of pure nickel but they seem to have a little less brightness to them. I've been pretty happy with Dunlap, GHS, D'Addario and DR Blues. I want to like Ernie Ball but they feel like wire to me.
Here are just Gibson's. I'm sure I'm missing a few. Have had about 7 different Heritage H-150 LPs as well.
1959 Les Paul Special - TV Yellow
1971 Les Paul Custom - Black
1978 Les Paul Standard - Black
1981 Les Paul Firebrand - Green
2000 Les Paul Classic - Cherry
2006 Les Paul Classic -...
Thank you for the kind words! I opted for the 50's Black Beauty vibe...
It's kind of mishmash of parts.... '69 SG Custom tail, Creamtone ABR-1, Antiquity pups, etc. The plastics are original, as well as the toggle, pots and pg bracket. It's a great player guitar.
It's a fun stop. I was there a couple weeks ago. They do have all of the shirts, signs, etc.. in stock, if that's your thing. Plenty of new guitars hanging on the carousel and walls to keep you occupied for a good bit. Scouffed at the Murphy Lab prices. Ended up walking out with a koozie...
Funny post. I kind of get what you’re saying in that, I’ve noticed a difference in body size and cut on Custom Shop R9,R0 etc to a production line. Distinct difference to my OCD cork sniffing eyes. Mine don’t typically lean out/ widen too much, unless a few Oberon were involved though.
Excellent find! I have the same exact guitar - early 1959 Limed Special.
As far as tuners go... I would call Kim at Historic Makeovers. He can get you taken care. I had him source and age some for my '66 ES330. They look perfect.
