    Pelham Blue JJN Custom up next!

    Hrmm never noticed that tbh. Interesting. I just didn't buy the black one cause of the custom plate. I'm usually fine w/o fret markers/side dots, but having a 12th is nice. Gonna go check out the gold one again to start up the GAS process lol.

    Looking for advice on blemishes

    I wish that were the case for an old clown burst of mine. I purposely placed it in our home's sunroom whenever I wasn't playing it but it still didn't fade... (this is before I knew anything about the differences between a Gibby/Epi, types of paints and chemical reactions and all that jazz)

    Looking for advice on blemishes

    IIRC, this is one of those colors that is most prone to fading due to the paint used. There's not much you can do other than to play it, love it and see where it takes you next :headbanger:

    Pelham Blue JJN Custom up next!

    If the last two models are any indication, I wouldn't be too worried. Those are still readily available.

    Stock Probucker 2/3

    Yeah, in 2023, there really shouldn't be any excuse not to at least have one or two standards of plug and play connectors (and converter connectors too). But alas, this market is saturated with antiquated concepts and someone is going to come up with some weird nonsensical argument against it...

    Stock Probucker 2/3

    There were a couple sellers on reverb that had those molex connectors. I suppose they could probably be sourced but given that a good segment of the modding population immediately point to the pots and caps as the problem, it might not be really worth the while.

    Stock Probucker 2/3

    If you're referring to the quick connect from Gibby pcbs, then no. But quick connects from Gibby pickups installed in various Epiphone models from the last few years are compatible with other Epiphones.

    Stock Probucker 2/3

    i have bought quite a few. They're great but (big but) it's a fixed size. So in the LP context, it only works on Gibson LPs and Epiphones that have the same knob placement. They're also a bit pricey and they do NOT come with a countersunk type three way switch. Aside from that, IMHO the...

    The blue one does look very attractive.

    Not sure if Epiphone's planning a new model for him soon. But GW had this article recently: https://www.guitarworld.com/news/bjorn-gelotte-epiphone-signature-les-paul

    Goldtop Tribute vs LTD EC1000?

    Hrmm good question. I haven't noticed any checking on my satin gibbies - mind you these are 5-6 years old only and I'm not actively trying to relic them or anything. BUT, I've seen second hand ones where there were lots of paint chips and just rubbed off paint. I have a feeling that the...

    Goldtop Tribute vs LTD EC1000?

    The truth is the Tribute and its glossy brother are two different things. Hopefully you can actually touch them before buying cause that silky... smooth... satin, natural mahogany back is soooo soft ...just makes you want to caress it ... :naughty: But if you want a "real" gold top.. esp. if...

    Goldtop Tribute vs LTD EC1000?

    Well... hrmm.... I happen to have all of the above. Personally I'd go with keeping the EC1000 and getting a satin gold Tribute. I love the satin gold ones. Even though the fingerboard's not bound, because the body has the maple cap reveal, it looks almost like JJN's Dorothy. There are...

    Stock Probucker 2/3

    :slash: In that case, I can really answer your initial question in full :D I ended up buying a lot of Epis over the last three years, most of which had PB2/3s in them. (I'm kinda a hopeless gear addict...) - Gibson Burstbuckers 1/2/3 with the Epiphone quick connect - went out and found a...

    Stock Probucker 2/3

    The PB 2/3s sound fine the way they are. I've swapped them in and out on various guitars from time to time to try different things. Most of the time it's just for experimenting rather than out of necessity. Do other pickups have a difference? Sure. Are they worlds apart (if you stay in the...
