    Not loving Thomastik-Infeld RP110 on 2014 LP Traditional

    I'm older, play at home, wash my handsand clean my guitars like I have OCD, so I have been using Thomastik-Infeld's on all my guitars with really good results. However, while the same set makes my Fenders sound great, and gives my Epiphone Plus Top Pro any LP a run for the money, they don't seem...

    Buzz? Always check dimmer switches first

    So, the very day I get two new pedals and an extra pedal power supply and my amp is buzzing like crazy. I try different guitars buzz still there. I systematically unplug and plug every single thing in home studio. Still buzzing. This took an hour or more easy. I take the amp in a different room...

    Tonebenders - making sense of the madness

    I did search, but many threads are old. There are just so many darn Tonebenders out there. I have read so many reviews, but still feel lost. I live in a major metro area (Philly), but no stores seem to offer more than one or two fuzz pedals. What do I want? Well, I kind of will know it when I...

    Guitar Center trade in - how do they calculate value?

    I always assumed GC had some kind of database to value a trade in, but on a recent trip guess what they used? Reverb.com and 60% of the average value they might find there. I questioned the store rep about this a bit and he said that is all they really use. This ended up doubling what I expected...

    Princeton Reverb, with little to no reverb

    I have a 1978 Princeton Reverb for many years. The reverb never worked too well on it - it works, but is not very wet. I checked out the tank recently, cleaned the contacts, but no change. I am pretty much satisfied with my Electro Harmonics Oceans 11 spring reverb setting, but short of taking...

    Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO upgrade harness?

    Okay, as posted here I just bought a 2014 Les Paul Traditional and my formerly beloved 2014-15ish Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO (Antique Amber - it is beautiful IMO) is feeling a little lonely and insecure. I literally picked this guitar out of 20 at GC over a few months and it really...

    My first Gibson LP - 2014 Traditional Ocean Blue.

    Here is my new (to me) 2014 Les Paul Traditional. I have had many Fenders, various Ibanez guitars, one Epiphone Les Paul and more, but for some dumb reason, never a Les Paul. I love this guitar. I thought I liked my Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top Pro (that I picked out from at least 10)...

    No effort by seller

    I don't post often, but I need to vent a little. I went to a guys house to check out a nearly $2000 used Les Paul the other day. It had a couple of big scratches he did not mention (even when asked if it had scratches), the strings were so old and crusty I checked my tetanus shot records, and...

    Contact cleaner on new pickup switch

    Epi Les Paul Plus Top Pro. Love the thing, but from day one the pickup switch was acting up. A year later I finally got around to squirting it with contact cleaner and whalla, problem solved. Maybe I need a hobby, but can anyone tell me why a brand new switch would need to be cleaned? I'm...

    Epi LP Standard Plus Top Pro vs Tele

    Hi all. I bought a Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro a while back and have been very happy with it. I use it mainly in the home studio and found it to be quite versatile and after a new nut and bridge, even better tone. Last week I bought a Nashville Telecaster for what I thought would be...

    Help with Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro

    Hi everyone. I know most of this exists all throughout the forum, but perhaps I can add something interesting or relevant to others. I have a Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro and it has become my favorite guitar for all my home recording and playing (Mac, S-Gear, Logic...). I have mostly...

    New poster saying thanks

    Hello everyone. I have been playing strats for a long time, but the single coil hum was killing me as I started to play mostly through my little home computer studio. So, I decided to buy a low cost Epiphone, mainly for the computer, but now I absolutely love this guitar and play it all the...
