    Best year for Tributes

    2016 60s, Honeyburst, 2018 Honeyburst. both great guitars for what i gave for them. Pulled the 490,498 combo and electronics from the 2016 and loaded a 50s wiring harness with some Seymour Duncan Seth Lover pups. Sounds like what a Les Paul should without the hundreds of dollars extra...

    5w Champ kits

    Most will usually provide a layout and schematic and some a detailed step by step but as there are a number of different ways and components that people use as well as adding their own mods I figure there are enough forums and other sites that have complete instructions if you search for them

    5w Champ kits

    Boothill amps has a good Champ kit and is reasonably priced. Though you will need to google a step by step assembly if needed. Dave is very helpful also with details and has assembly videos for his kits. 5F1, 5E3, Bassman etc.

    My Dog Loves To Chase Squirrels

    Our Yorkie Pepper loves treeing squirrels. He makes the rounds always watching ever since he caught one on his porch. Every now and again I have to get out there and give the squirrel a chance to hightail it to another tree. Its fun to watch and listen as they chatter back and forth.

    Your #1 (Player!)

    Best sounding and feeling aren't always the prettiest ones in the family but that's what makes them endearing. My 49 "Snakehead" body Tele with modern neck is the most comfortable to just grab and wail with. Simple vol and tone controls. A basic workhorse in most extreme sense of the phrase. I...

    I visited Les

    Well done. A very moving expirience I'm sure and inspiration for generations to come. He is missed by all that choose to follow the calling of music.

    Is the Gibson LesPaul Classic a lesser les Paul?

    Thinner bodies on those are nice. The tribute series are also just about 1/16 thinner than a regular size Les Paul just enough that you may feel a difference some may not.

    toggle switch and pots lenght for Tribute

    I replace the wiring in a 50s tribute from 2016 and did a complete wiring setup on a 2018. The pot shafts are the long shaft and the toggle switch is indeed the short shaft. And they do sound awesome once you get them completed so good luck

    2018 SG Junior

    Awesome axe. Still searching for the right one for me. Returned a 99 SG Standard to GC recently. Was great but just not great for me. Perhaps the one pickup route would better suit me. Minimalistic approach.
