    verify this '84 Reissue V please

    Not a typical Asian truss rod, and the pickup mounting ring screws are black, I'd be inclined to say it's legit.

    Does a Stereo to Mono Cable exist?

    Ya, depends on the amp. What are you running through?

    Epiphone Rebranding: Bye-Bye to "Entry Level" Guitars

    Ya, that early probably. I think my dad paid $2000 for his '74 K5 Blazer.

    Does a Stereo to Mono Cable exist?

    Yep... using the two inputs would certainly help to isolate the volume/tone circuits. You'd still have some interaction on the volume controls, but not as bad as directly connecting them with a TRS>TS

    Does a Stereo to Mono Cable exist?

    From looking at the wiring diagram, the wiring and stereo cable allow each pickup to be routed to its own amplifier, and there is no co-mingling of the tone/volume controls when on the B+N position. Each pickup has its own controls AND its own output. The pickup selector connects the pickups to...

    So who's selling their older Epiphones to buy something from the new line?

    I might... but maybe not specifically to get something from the new line. My '14 SG has been a bit of a problem child since day-1... partly my doing, partly the doing of Epiphone. It's just never been one of my favorites, and I need to correct the problems it has and move it... either for a new...

    Does a Stereo to Mono Cable exist?

    Good idea, and that cable would work with other guitars, as long as it doesn't get plugged into something with active pickups. But the shorter TRS male to TS female would allow for the use of any length cable to the amp, but doesn't solve the problem of the volume/tone controls not working...

    Does a Stereo to Mono Cable exist?

    Interesting design.... I found an image of a pickguard indicating that a Gibson Y-cord #501S should be used. Here's a couple of wiring diagrams that I found... From the stereo diagram, yes... connecting the two outputs together with a Y-adapter will work... and work ALMOST like a Les Paul...

    Is this a genuine Gibson Les Paul?

    Umm... There is a difference between a replica/reproduction built by a skilled luthier and a $150 Chinese knockoff that is represented as the real thing.

    Is this a genuine Gibson Les Paul?

    The pickup mounting hardware as well. Gibson uses black screws for the pickup mounting rings on guitars with gold hardware. Even Epiphone uses gold screws on these models, so it's an easy one to slip by. But ya... A Custom would have gold tuners, and likely gold keystones, probably Grovers...

    Does a Stereo to Mono Cable exist?

    Interesting... so the guitar has no pickup switching and simply feeds each pickup to a separate output? In that case, a stereo cable into an A/B/Y box would provide flexibility.... Can't say that I've ever seen a guitar without pickup switching, but as you said it's vintage, and there's a TON...

    Does a Stereo to Mono Cable exist?

    I've not looked into anything for the application you are specifically looking for since I've never owned a stereo guitar. My interest has been headphones... and generally I just avoid them for stereo program material. I have "remixed" some of my MP3 files to mono so I can use phones, but in...

    Tuning Issues ( Anybody )

    The strings should not contact anything other than the tuners, nut, saddles, and tailstop. Unless you have a jazz box style trapeze tailpiece, there is not enough string between the saddles and stop bar to have a significant impact on overall tension during normal playing unless you have a...

    Does a Stereo to Mono Cable exist?

    If the output is true stereo, then joining the signals will cause some cancellation of the peaks and valleys when the signals are not in phase. You need active electronics to merge a truly stereo source into a mono input. This is something I have dealt with for decades... I am completely deaf...

    Epiphone Rebranding: Bye-Bye to "Entry Level" Guitars

    Yep... Up until just a few years ago, I paid $200 for every hard drive I ever purchased, with the exception of my first one, which was a 64meg Miniscribe with an external housing that was $600. Seagate ST225, Seagate ST4096, Connor 212, Maxtor 400, Maxtor 1.2gig..... But unless he was buying...

    Tuning Issues ( Anybody )

    Blessed here in my part of SoCal. I can (and do) go years without so much as touching the truss rod unless I change string gauges. Some of you poor saps have to adjust 2-4 times a year. My acoustics can get away without case humidifiers... or dryers. My D'Angelico has nothing, the Taylor has...

    Oh holy fuck. Thanks. :facepalm: And here I've been washing my hands before handling those guitars.

    Monosodium Glutamate Isn’t Bad For You, Unless You’re Racist

    But but but... they just STARTED adding MSG to Doritos because President So-And-So relaxed controls on the FDA and allowed companies to pay for approvals. Ya... I've heard that from the step-daughter a million times.

    Tuning Issues ( Anybody )

    I pull the string through the tuner, then grab the string at the 1st fret and pull it back just a little past the 2nd fret, kink it at the post, and wind it up. Loopback was indeed a PITA when changing strings, and I honestly did not see any benefit... primarily because I've never had problems...

    In defense of the "humble" SD '59

    So we won't talk about the pair of Invaders I have in my Kramer "V" :dude:
