    NGD- My first Flying V!

    Got the exact guitar myself. Mine has JB/59 pups. It's a killer guitar. Only thing I don't like is the volume pots. I will eventually replace with CTS or Bournes pots.

    NGD’s....3x is the “Charm”??!!!?!

    Hope this one pans out for you. I had a Large GC gift card 2 years ago from my wife. I found a mint 2016 used Honeyburst Std 15' up and bought it. I did replace all electronic and pups. My wife bought me a used 2017 Blueberry burst that shipped off the west coast. Shows up with no case wrapped...

    What LP do you most regret selling (or trading)?

    '71 Black Custom. I bought used in '82 for $425 and sold in '84. Sadly no pics, just memories of a great guitar. Played through a '68 Marshall which was sold off shortly after for $525. I often think of present day value on these things then I throw up in my mouth.

    Guitar auction

    I read through the release process...seems like a nightmare...no thanks. I would not trust UPS to pack out anything I own. I have visions of opening the case at home and finding the headstock sheared off.

    Guitar auction

    I looked at most of the LP's and a few stand out. Beware on #46. It has a headstock break with no mention of it that I could see.

    Very nice score. On the hunt for an older classic. The store let you pull the pickups?

    Kind of a NGD...the "one that got away" but came back - 95 Studio Wine Red

    I have the same guitar but made in 1991. I've had a few different pups in it. Currently have 490's in it. Your guitar is much better condition than mine. I green scotch brite the back of my neck periodically to keep it smooth. The ebony fret board is awesome. Mine weighs in at 10.4#. Other than...

    Identification guide for Tim Shaw PAF reissues,

    About 6 years ago on CL I bought a set of pups taken out of a 1987 LP. The guy thought they were 490's and did not like them. I took them apart and confirmed they were Shaw's by the white spacer, mag, etc. A great find for $60. I have them in my double neck on the 12 string side however rarely...

    NGD - 2019 Les Paul Standard Blueberry Burst

    Wife bought me this 2019 BB Traditional for my birthday. I initially bought a '17 traditional used from GC and returned it as it was junk. Under white light the purple burst comes alive. I find girls like this finish better than guys...my observation. It smells like vanilla as I keep it in its case.

    Loving My Traditional

    Lower frets take a bit to get used to. No problem with the 50's neck...love it. BB 1/2's sounded good through a JCM 800.

    Prewired Wiring harness advice for Les Paul Standard PP

    I have bought 3 harnesses from Toneman and are excellent. Many like Jonesy as well. He does post on some forums and has some you tube vids on his work.

    Loving My Traditional

    2019 traditional in blueberry burst. Wife bought for my birthday. She came out of the box pretty much set up. She bought a 2017 BB used from GC but was returned as it was a POS. Advertised in excellent condition which it was not.

    Warehouse Speakers ET-65's

    I bought a pair a few months ago to replace the 70's in my Marshall 4104. They are awesome. For me this speaker serves up justice for classic rock/blues. IMO WGS makes the best speaker money can buy right now.

    NGD Es339 P90 Pro

    I bought my black one last month through Musicianfriends. ($299)

    picked up a 339

    Nice axe, nice price. Multiple active threads in process on dialing in the tone. I also have the muddy issue. Replacing the pots, wiring and cap probably gets to half way there. Replacing the pups as well should get you all the way there. I have not done yet but there is enough thread testimony...

    Gibson 57 Pickups on Epi 339

    I have both Epi 339's. (Pro and P90) I picked them up at $300 per which I thought was a good deal. I have gigged with my Pro a few times using Orange and Marshall amps. I cannot EQ out the mud. The bridge pup is fine alone with guitar tone around 7-8. When I switch to both pups or neck the bass...
