    Gibson LP Real or Fake?????

    Definitely not a fake, 100%. It has to actually look like an LP to be a fake.

    Anyone had the guts to do this to a new LP?

    It's really not though, not at all. If you know what you're doing, I've gone back and forth dozens of times for dozens of people. I've been doing high end finishing for 30+ years. It's literally no different than color sanding a finish during the finishing process. No gloss finish, as in ZERO...

    Are String Swings Safe For Nitro Finish?

    I've got a number of LPs hanging on them for years now with zero issues. But from String Swing themselves.... Q: Are your products safe to use for guitars with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish? A: Our material will not eat into the nitro of your guitar like most foams and rubbers do. Fender...

    Hang vs. stand

    The String Swing hangers I use, are made in such a way that an LP headstock hangs straight out of it. There is no unnatural pressure put on the neck. Can't comment of other brands.

    Slanted nut?

    You know, it's possible a heavy handed player tended to bend strings off the old nut and had a new one cut that way on purpose. Maybe.

    Classic wine red. I wonder what the percentage of "firsts", the wine red was?

    Slanted nut?

    Normal? No. But it looks like the slots are cut deeper on that side to compensate so other than visually, it should function the same.

    Tailpiece height- is it bad to be too high?

    It's really just a preference thing. Generally when the bridge has to be high, the tail piece follows and personally I don't like the whole string bed that high off the body. Just a personal thing.

    Roller Bridges and Nuts !

    I've never had tuning issues I couldn't fix but if you like it go for it. My only experience with them is sometimes, overtime, they start to rattle. I generally stick to the more moving Parts the more potential problems, keep it simple.

    The Les Paul in Your Avatar?

    In black and White it's hard to be sure other than it's one of the 3, 13' Standards I own. The pic was taken at a show and then posted later so that's the best I can do. All of 'em are 13' Premium Plus Standards. I bought the first (Desert Burst) at a year end closeout, on sale and with a coupon...
