    So many models, what to look at

    I’ve got an older Epi LP Custom and a new Gibson LP Standard. With fretwork, setup, and multiple hardware upgrades for the Epi, playability is roughly the same between the two. However, the first time I played them back to back after buying the Gibson I was shocked at the difference in feel...

    Ever feel like you are "there" with LPs and guitars in general?

    I’m pretty set with guitars. I’ve got a terrific LP Standard and Martin acoustic, plus a very nice Epiphone LP Custom. I might get a Gibson ES-335, but that’ll be when (if?) the pandemic ends.

    Burstbucker Pro is awful!

    I had Burstbucker 61’s (pretty similar to the Pro’s) in my Standard, and swapped them for a set of overwound Fralin Pure PAFs. The 61’s were ok, but the Fralins sound clearer and more articulate. They transformed my guitar.

    favorite stock epiphone humbuckers

    Whatever I had in my ‘07 Custom were a muddy mess. I swapped them out for Seymour Duncans and haven’t touched them since.

    50s LP Standard or LP Modern

    I chose a ‘60s Standard over a Modern mostly because I wanted a solid body without chambering, plus Bourbon burst is a damn nice finish.

    Buying a new 60"s Standard . Anything different in 2019 and 2020 ?

    Nope. Same build, features and finishes. Some retailers have different finishes; for example Guitar Center has an exclusive Tri-Burst finish.

    How do you straplock your Les Paul?

    I have a pair of Schallers that I'm considering installing on my '60s Standard.

    Joking aside, is it really much of an upgrade to have a bone nut made for a Gibson?

    Of course I bought a 30 watt iron with lead-free solder. I was thinking of cancelling my order due to the extended wait, now I guess I'll be cancelling it for sure. StewMac, here I come.

    Yeah, I plan on practicing extensively if and when Harbor Freight ships my soldering gun and supplies. I've watched a couple videos. It doesn't seem too difficult, but it's also being done to a $2,500 guitar and expensive pickups. That makes me hesitant. We'll see. However, if the local shops...
