    Is the Faber "Gottfried" just a cheap chinese pedal?

    HNGD! Standard '50s

    Looks really nice! I like Les Pauls with thick bodies, and this one seems to have one. Also, you will be looking at nice electrics if you open it.

    Is the Faber "Gottfried" just a cheap chinese pedal?

    Faber is perhaps best known as a reputable source for "tone enhancing" replacement bridges for Les Paul type guitars. But they also sell an overdrive pedal named "Gottfried" (like the owner) for about 130 € A buyer of this pedal opened it. He found "Caline" and "CP20" printed on the PCB. After...

    Anyone else carry pencils in their pockets?

    Ouch ... Get well soon! :sadwave: :photos: oh sorry, that was the wrong smiley .... What do we learn - Don't carry sharp items in your pockets, dont't leave clothes lying around. Next time you'll step on a sock and slip ..... sometimes it's right to give attention to what our moms used to say...

    need new bridge for my special I

    Well, normally a picture says more than a thousand words, but in this case info about which bridge it is or a link to the seller would be quite valuable ;)

    Wow, that looks really nice - and an open book headstock to boot. Really good work! Also, the guitar body looks impressive - can you tell me the thickness of the body?

    Les Paul Body Thickness - Which are thicker than the Standard?

    Thanks for all your answers! But it seems the discussion drifts a little away. For my interests, the thickness measured at the rim is what actually counts - since this is the where it is perceived. @Who - thanks for your kind offer - but I fear that there is a tiny bit of misunderstanding. I...

    Les Paul Body Thickness - Which are thicker than the Standard?

    I found out that there are numerous threads about thickness issues - way too many in fact. But I didn't find one that answers my questions. I also know that LP Studios are thinner than LP Standards. But I found photos that suggest that certain LPs are even thicker than a standard - for...

    More New "Les Paul's" for 2018 from the CS

    But no golden strings - another case of Gibson not going the whole way Read the description? The "nice" red guitar doesn't try to cater to us .... but it is amazing how low so-called music "journalists" can sink.

    Any Epiphone G-400 makeovers done?

    Motivation? I? supply? sorry, not in this case. :hmm: As you may already know, removing the PU covering of an Epiphone is quite a task. Some might even describe it as a major pain in the ass. :naughty: If you find mahogany veneer under the paint (which is sure for newer epis), saving it while...
