i have an L&M 2012 Faded Les Paul. I hate faded Les Pauls, but this one cost me about $1000 shipped and has a killer vintage burst in lemon drop.
I have done the Virtuoso clean and polish to get it somewhat shiny, but now I'm thinking of giving it a thin coat of aged clear lacquer I picked up...
I've had a CR8 I bought new in 2009. Not an overly fat neck, but I'd be much happier if it was like my G0 neck.
Needless to say I've thought about having it shaved for years and never had the balls.
Well, I know Jimmy Page did it and like the results. I'm wondering who else has done it too.
Thanks to Gibson's aging or hammering saddle practice, while turning an intonation screw, it just snapped in half on my A string. I'm hoping I can get out the remaining bit.
It's a 2004 model - with wire.
Anyone have one saddle screw laying around?
I'm in the middle on an inlay replacement (my first) and I'm looking for suggestions on the best ways you have found to pre-radius the inlays.
Some say sand paper in a 24" trash can, others have used radius sanding blocks from Stew Mac.
Just looking for some help.
I use dual thumb wheels on a lot of my ABR-1 Gibson's. Too much looking at BOTB, and it seemed to me to be a good idea to prevent the post from bending from the string down force.
I'm curious if other people use dual thumb wheels, and what they hear as being the tonal impact of doing this...
I don't know if this has been done already.
Open to all true Les Pauls (no jrs please or at least say what it is).
2009 CR8 7lbs 1oz.
Here's a bad picture. It's less red and more teaburst in person.
I have a gorgeous CR8 that I could never part with, yet I prefer thinner necks like my G0, or even better, my shredder Classic or 60s Standard.
I'd like to hear from someone who's actually done it (Page or Walsh? LOL!) and what they thought afterwards of the changes.
Sorry, they are a little on the large size. Looks to me like the covers are correct. The pickups look good too. In circuit, the neck is 7.87, the bridge 7.45. I don't know a real 50's pickguard to tell if mine is correct or not. Maybe you guys can tell? I also got a couple shots of the neck...
I don't spend any time at all in the vintage forum because I thought I'd never have a need to, but now I do.
I'm in a hotel in Nashville and head back with the guitar to Cinci tomorrow.
I bought a 1956 from GC for $5K + Nashville tax ($5.5K). The usual B.S., we don't discount Vintage. I...
The G0 is a 2004. Very dark and smooth fretboard, almost ebony, with a shiney waxy appearance. It's a great guitar, no doubt. Only issue is Mr. Obvious: It's a plaintop.
The Axcess has a great looking top. Great looking Iced Tea burst.
I haven't made the offer to swap yet, so I was wonder...
