    Damaged tone pot

    Hey all, I just finished swapping out some import pots in a project for an extra pair of Gibson pots I had in the parts bin. The Gibson pots used to work. After completing, I noticed that the tone pot had no change when spinning the knob, same tone on 0 as it is on 10. Checked everything at...

    Didn't know this :(

    While working inside my Les Paul Special I, I noticed for the first time that it has a veneer top at least I think that it is, unless maybe it's a mark by the router? I always thought it had a solid mahogany body, guess not. It still sounds good though. I'm assuming it's a mahogany veneer top...

    When is gold golden?

    In my Andy Rooney voice: Ever notice how many variations of gold there are on Epiphone Gold Tops? Just go to Google images and type in Epiphone Les Paul Gold Tops and you’ll see what I mean. There’s Light gold, dark gold, yellow gold, bronze gold, heavy gold sparkle and mini gold sparkle. I...

    Tuning machine mystery

    Hey all, Some of you know that I just acquired a 2019 Les Paul Tribute DC. The tuning machines installed on my LP are what I believe to be incorrect or swapped. Based on what I have seen in advertisements from sellers, the deluxe tuners should have a mounting nut and the backs should be...

    DC Junior confusion

    Hi all, I'm looking to purchase what I think is called a Les Paul Double cut Jr with a single P90. What would be the difference between a 2019 Tribute model that's being advertised by many and a 2018 model? Or, is it basically the same model. Thank you.

    Advice on selling

    Hello all. Hoping that I can get a feel for what you think I can get for my 2006 LP studio. It has SD Seth Lovers and a custom pickgard. I did remove the original knobs and installed the ones on it now. It's in very good condition. Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.

    TonePros lesson learned

    I could not get my low E intonated so I decided to flip my saddle to gain just a bit more adjustment. My bridge is a TonePros. It has been a learning experience so I thought I would share my experience should anybody want to attempt this that owns one. First off, you’ll need a 5/32 open end...

    Low tuner issue

    Please take a look at the height of these Kluson tuning machines that I just installed in my Les Paul Special. They seem very very low. The eyelet just peaks out of the bushing. I haven't tried stringing yet as neck is off for some mods I'm undertaking. Where did I go wrong.

    NGD Epiphone Les Paul Special w/P90's

    Looked hard for either a good price on a Gibson LP Jr. Or a Melodie Maker and even a Epi Jr. With a set neck. They're hard to find! And if you do locate one, expensive too! So after checking out forums and YT videos where everybody gave the LP Special 1 good reviews I said what do I have to lose...

    Sliding me crazy!

    Is learning slide guitar supposed to be so hard? Darn, I can't seem to get anything out that sounds good. I'm learning on a guitar that has the tallest action and all I get is fret clacking. I understand that a higher action is preferable but I also understand that Derek Trucks has a low action...

    Fret crowning needed?

    So I have been playing my newly acquired used Les Paul Studio a lot lately since I got it. Please excuse my naïveté but of all my guitars new and used, none of their frets will stop my finger from sliding up the fret board, sometimes to a dead stop like the upper frets on my LP. I have no...

    Puzzled by ease of bending

    Been playing my newly acquired LP Studio quite a bit since it arrived. I'm curious to know why bending strings are so darn easy? I've got a nice set up going on, really plays nice. My set up and string gauge is exactly like my Epiphone LP which also plays really well too. The Gibby's strings...

    Matching plastics

    What I thought was going to be an easy shopping day wasn't. Can some one please recommend a source for matching Gibson white pick guard, white poker chip and white humbucker surrounds for a LP Studio? Having a heck of time locating. Also, do I have to get Gibson parts in order to get curved...
