    Kluson tuners replacement for 2014 Traditional

    Thanks to you and others. For the rest of you, I have to tell you, I took the nut advice and a little filing fixed my sharp issue, but gosh darn it I still love locking tuners. I was going to say something, but I decided to sit back and let a few of you continue to pontificate, argue, and...

    Kluson tuners replacement for 2014 Traditional

    While I appreciate all the opinions and advice, finding the following is difficult: Locking tuners AND vintage pegs AND no drilling AND chrome My guitar's hardware is chrome. I can find all of the above except chrome. Nickel is kind of close, but why not match if I can.. So, if anyone knows of...

    Kluson tuners replacement for 2014 Traditional

    Jesus how many times do I have to say I have eight guitars, have had 40 over the years, I know how to string them, and of all the ones I have right now in the same room, they all stay in tune, except this one. Oh, and I did the nut trick and it seems to be fine.

    Kluson tuners replacement for 2014 Traditional

    Okay, doing this test no change. Meanwhile all strings, but in particular the top 3 strings, go out of tune very easily with just a little bending or even playing without much bending and I have stretched the living hell out of the strings AND this happens with different strings over the past...

    Kluson tuners replacement for 2014 Traditional

    I have lightly filed the nut and used some graphite as well. Didn't seem to make any difference at all. I'm not a pro tech by any means, but what is the best way to rule in our out the nut as the problem? GrunGie, I have locking tuners on a Tele and they are amazing in every way. I do want to...

    Kluson tuners replacement for 2014 Traditional

    I love love love my 2014 Les Paul Traditional, but the tuners are driving me nuts. The guitar does not stay in tune, is some times sharp after sitting a while and I have eight other guitars right next to it that do not have these issues. I want to replace the "Tonepros Vintage-Style Tunder" it...

    Not loving Thomastik-Infeld RP110 on 2014 LP Traditional

    For what it's worth, pure nickel is what I was missing with the TI's. My store did not have D’Addario EXLs, so I bought a set of Ernie Ball pure nickel slinky and the chime, or bite, or midrange thing, or Pagey-esque kind of thing, or whatever we want to call what I was missing is BACK! I do...

    Sweetwater, so far not impressed...

    Sorry you had troubles OP. I have bought a fair amount from them including a guitar with problems. They deleted my honest but negative review. No swearing. Nothing out of bounds. As a result I don’t buy from them and get a kick out of all their gushing positive reviews, on all products!

    Not loving Thomastik-Infeld RP110 on 2014 LP Traditional

    Thanks everyone. It was kind a dumb question, but I figured that nickel was what I should try and am super happy with some Ernie Balls I picked up. They brought back the kind of midrange chime thing I was missing with the TI strings on that guitar. Appreciate the comments on set up. I’m okay...

    Almost time for a new recording computer Mac or PC?

    I have had many Macs going back to the 1908s. I have also had PCs and even a couple Amigas back in the day. I will always prefer Mac for usability and music. However, I agree the prices are absurd. In addition used Macs within 4-5 years are so high priced, you might as well buy new. I think what...

    Significant Tonal Improvement Changing Klusons for Grovers

    Not the same thing but I noticed a huge improvement in my Ibanez PM2 with new $100 Gotoh tuners. Made it a better guitar in every way. I did not expect it, but it happened!

    Not loving Thomastik-Infeld RP110 on 2014 LP Traditional

    I'm older, play at home, wash my handsand clean my guitars like I have OCD, so I have been using Thomastik-Infeld's on all my guitars with really good results. However, while the same set makes my Fenders sound great, and gives my Epiphone Plus Top Pro any LP a run for the money, they don't seem...

    Worst Concert You've Ever Seen ...?

    Larry Coryell in the late 1980s at some club near San Diego. His bass player was 90 minutes late and they played without him for a long time. Apparently Larry was not happy with his own playing as he continued to swear like a maniac at himself at every riff he played. It was embarrassing. Hate...

    Buzz? Always check dimmer switches first

    Kitchen is being remodeled (so much fun) and I swear it is not on the same circuit. Studio has its own. But the light is right under the amp downstairs. It only started this with a bad bulb, but I will definitely take some time to sort this out since I am currently without drywall in the kitchen...

    Buzz? Always check dimmer switches first

    Well the new LEDs and dinners might be a problem for me too. Didn’t Edison invent lightbulbs 150 years or so ago. Why is this still a thing? :-)

    Buzz? Always check dimmer switches first

    So, the very day I get two new pedals and an extra pedal power supply and my amp is buzzing like crazy. I try different guitars buzz still there. I systematically unplug and plug every single thing in home studio. Still buzzing. This took an hour or more easy. I take the amp in a different room...
