    Let's see the run of the mills you have converted into historic territory

    2012 Standard, then i replaced toggle switch for a 50's style with single conductor braided wire. Replaced the PCB circuit board for a 50's style wire harness with bumble bee capacitors, replaced the pups with Seymour Duncan Slash Pro 2's, replaced the chrome pegs with cream tunning pegs...

    How much did you pay for your first lp?

    After 30yrs of playing LP copies I played a mates 2000 classic and ran out and bought a Gibson the next week (March 2013), a brand spanking new 2012 standard / light burst I paid $3,300 AUS. I then ripped out the wiring, changed it for a MSSC 50's harness and Seymour D pickups. Haven't played my...

    Considering different inlay materials used and the string coming into contact with timber sometimes and inlay at other times, does fret board material really change the tone that much?

    Tone change with latest Standard weight relief?

    My 2012 Standard weighs about 9.3 pounds. Has a sweet ring to it when unplugged and rocks plugged in. With 50's wiring and slash pups it sounds as sweet as my mates 2000 classic and weighs about the same. in fact he prefers my guitars tone but its hard to say when the pups have been changed. But...

    "50's" wiring Les Paul noise..?

    I have a 50's wire harness (MSSC) and have no hum at all, even at high gain levels. I think there have been a lot of 50's Gibson's played at high gain through the 60's and onwards without issue :shock:

    Gibson Humbucker Poll

    I have 496r / 500t in one guitar... love the 496r it has sweet sound, but i'm not keen on the 500t, its way too harsh for me. Also have BB pro's in a 2012 standard.. and yes I find the Bridge too bright and the neck not as sweet as the 496r. I wasn't keen on the circuit board wiring in the...

    Martin custom six string harness

    Hey dude, I don't feel there is a point considering with the new pickups it will not allow a decent before and after comparison of the Matt's Harness. Just trust your instincts and go with a MSSC wire harness, with all the care put into part selections, quality workmanship and a choice of...

    Sound like Slash Les Paul for left-handed

    Ok i'm treading dangerous ground here, many will shoot me down but: 1. Buy a L/hand 2013 traditional , I believe they aren't weight relieved. (maybe light burst, for I feel they are the closest to some of slash's guitars, mine is light burst) 2. pull out all electrics and get in contact with...
