    1975 Bridge Replacement, advice please!

    Whatever you use, don't deck your tailpiece; that's what caves them in.

    Epiphone Sheraton II Pro

    Mine got damp in a flood and, over a number of years, the harness rusted. I made a CTS/Switchcraft/Sozo harness, but left the stock p/ups. They're just fine. Great guitars, indeed!

    Epiphone Sheraton II Pro

    Me, I'm digging the robe, and the playing. The tone is nice, but it's the sound of your dirt box; how about letting us hear your guitar? (As you may notice from my avatar, I expect to like it....)

    Epiphone unveils new headstock redesign for “Inspired by Gibson” line

    But they could also do it by charging what Gibsons are worth, instead of what people will pay for the name, and letting Epis be Epis; Casinos, Sheratons, Emperors (both original acoustics & later jazzboxes), Broadways (same), Rivieras (the real ones, with mini-'buckers & Frequensators), the...

    Epiphone unveils new headstock redesign for “Inspired by Gibson” line

    On the Epi versions of Gibson models, sure. But I really hope they keep the Gibson headstock off the actual Epiphone models. Of course, as a long-time Epi fan, I'd love to see them just make Epi models, and drop all the cheap versions of Gibsons.

    1952 Gibson LP Gold Top - To Restore or To Convert?

    This. But be sure you re-route them properly - and that means for P-90s!

    What Is This Joe Walsh Les Paul?

    Could be worse; could be a mime. :wow:

    New 2019 Les Paul Standard 50s - yet more damages found :(

    I'll have to disagree here; $650-$700 gets you a Mexico-made mass produced guitar that is superior to what CBS was selling in the '70s. And I don't think the quality divide for Gibson was Norlin; it was Nashville.

    Where are you, Jimmy?

    Schaller S-Locks on new Les Paul Standard

    As each one has its own strap & locks, that would not be an issue for me.

    New 2019 Les Paul Standard 50s - yet more damages found :(

    Or get your money back and use it to buy a classic, top-quality, like-the-old-days Gibson (otherwise known as a Heritage.....)

    Schaller S-Locks on new Les Paul Standard

    Thanks for the review. I'm not going to run out & replace all my old Schallers with these, but I'll be perfectly happy putting these on my next electric. But on their explanatory vid on the website they mention"silent" several times, but never explain what that's supposed to mean; what's the...

    New 2019 Les Paul Standard 50s - yet more damages found :(

    Man - that looks less like bad QC and more like a bad refret to me! Doesn't Gibson have Plek machine lying around somewhere? I wouldn't expect that on a $250 guitar; for $2500? Send that puppy back!

    Schaller S-Locks on new Les Paul Standard

    OK< I'm back from schaller.com. Some interesting changes. The locking nut looks promising - but to my eye, the biggest improvement is the longer thread; that one is definitely a winner. I'm not so sure about the one-piece button/screw, though; I liked the flexibility to use the Schaller...

    Thanks; I'm way over to MF or Schaller or somewhere to check those out now.

    Schaller S-Locks on new Les Paul Standard

    New model of......? It's been a few years since I last mounted a set; if there's a new model Schaller, how does it differ?

    An approach that is not without its charms, I must say! :cheers2:
