    My thoughts on the 2019 Custom Shop run

    Went to my local music store today after they told me they finally got some 2019s in. Well to make a long story short: it's the same like in every year. Way too much hype about nothing. Are these good guitars? Yes they are. Same as last year also. Couldn't hear any difference between a 2017...

    Pickup question

    I have a bridge humbucker that has significantly lower volume than the neck pup. It doesn't sound thin but reads only 5k. Does anybody know what could be the problem? Thanks

    Nicky Pickups

    Hello, I played a fantastic CC 24 Nicky but noticed a very significant loudness change when switching from the neck to the bridge pup. The neck pup was significant louder and stronger. So we measured the bridge pups output and it was only 5k. Surprisingly it didn't sound weak or thin just...

    FS EU: 2015 Gibson "Shanks"

    Hi Guys, I am selling a beautiful 2015 Gibson CC 07 "Shanks". The guitar has a great flame top (almost like a Pearly) and plays and sounds fantastic. Very open sounding guitar, no mud in the neck position. The guitar has thin laquer on the back like the TH's. Maybe it was born as a TH model...

    WIZZ Pups different OHM readings

    Hey folks, just received my WIZZ pups today and noticed that the neck pup reads 7.3 ohms instead of 7.6 ohms as written on the package. The bridge pup reads exactly 8,3 ohms as advertised. And yes the readings were done after the pickups adjusted to room temperature. Anybody has a similar...

    Panucci Les Paul - pic heavy

    Hey Guys! I recently purchased my first LP built by a luthier. This purchase really changed my mind. I often search the internet for guitars. So I was visiting Gregor Hildens HP (Greg's Guitars - Selected Guitars and Gear) and I noticed a nice Tele built by Panucci Guitars. In the description...

    Shanks available again

    I was at my local guitar store today and there were two Shanks hanging on the wall. So I asked if they are used and the guy told me that they are brand new. He said Gibson has produced some "old" CC's again. He also said the sales rep told him that the 300 pieces have not been built yet and...

    1973 '54 Black Beauty Reissue

    Hi Folks, it's been a while since I posted here on the forum. I'm mainly a Strat player nowadays, due to the price policy and quality of modern Gibsons. My dream Gibson was always a '54-'56 Custom. That look with the P90 and Alnico V pickups is just great! And the sound of course too! So I...

    Choosing between two Sandys

    Hi Folks, I have the oppurtunity to buy a Gibson CC#4 Sandy. The best thing: I can choose between two. One Sandy weighs 8.0 lbs and the other one 8.9 lbs. A lot of people like low weight LP's. Which makes sense if you are 2 hrs on stage. Also some say a lighter LP (lighter wood) is...

    Hi Folks, so everyone says the 2013 models sound different. But why? Number 1 woud be the pups. Number 2 the light weight more resonant mahogany. Number 3? The missig condom? I can't really imagine that. The glue? Nope! Or? Maybe the new back finish? Is it like the Std. Faded finish from...

    2007 LP Std Faded not chambered?

    Hi All! I have the opportunity to buy a very nice 2007 Gibson Les Paul Std Faded. What intrigues me is the fact, that I thought all Faded models from 2007 and 2008 were chambered. This beauty weighs 7.9 lbs. So i figure it is weight relieved and not chambered. Chambered LPs are much...

    NGD: Derek Trucks SG

    Hi Guys! I just ordered a Derek Trucks SG. I always found SG's attractive but couldn't bond with the pickguards. The 61 Reissue guard is much better than the Standard guard but still it just didn't look good to me. When I first saw the Derek Trucks signature SG I immediately fell in love...
