    I'm a new apprentice

    I bugged a local luthier -actually I wanted him to look at my Les Paul to see if there was anything I could do to make it even easier to play and ask about fretwork and I mentioned how much I love classical guitars, and would love to build them despite being a shite classical player. So a couple...

    HNGD to me! Epi SG Classic

    This is my first Epi and first axe purchased online (Sweetwater) and I am amazed! Except for 1 finish blem that I can live with, and lowering the treble side action 1/64th" she is as good as I would have picked from a local store. The tongue has some nice fall away, and the neck is dead...

    Looking for an SG -Orville?

    I'm looking for an SG, the new Epiphones look nice (SG Classic, Classic worn I might want p90's and the Standard). I'm also open to MIJ versions. I've yet to be disappointed with axes from Japan. Their fretwork is always great, they shred etc. Would it be worth spending more on an Orville with...

    Beano Boost?

    Does anyone here own a Beano Boost? What's good and bad about it? I've narrowed down my choices to the AM Beano, Black Cat War Pig (good price but $33 to ship from England), Fulltone Ranger (I like the bias option), or if I have $$ when they drop R2R. The main question is, does it Iommi? Do it...

    Sudden Setup Issues

    I switched over to 8 gauge strings a couple weeks ago bc of arthritis and related pains. The good thing is I can bend strings like I'm a teenager again and my touch is MUCH lighter. The bad part is I cannot get my action back down to where it was with 10's or to stop buzzing, and sometimes...

    Belly scarf recs

    Is there anyone in the Beacon-Poughkeepsie, NY area or anyone there you would recommend to cut a belly scarf into my LP? It's not a vintage piece, has mods etc and I don't plan on selling it. It would allow me to pull her in closer and make her a more intimate and comfortable instrument. The...

    Definitive top wrap and bridge direction threads?

    I can't find a definitive answer. Can someone please direct me to the threads that will tell me: Why I would like to top wrap my strings/what happens if I raise my tail peice (Faber with spacers). What way "should/most common direction" the intonation screws on my bridge face, pup, or...

    LP pickup surprise.

    I had some time today and decided to swap the BKP Holy diver and Jazz neck in my LP back to the Burstbucker Pros and suddenly I'm hearing what I want to hear out of both positions. The Holy diver (6 and 7 string) is great in every guitar I have except for the LP. It doesn't sound bad, just not...

    Color bleed?

    I have an 05 Standard (special ed) in Black Cherry with cream binding etc. I'm getting red bleeding into the binding, on the rings, on the old nut. Has anyone ever seen this before? I've removed it twice, but it keeps happening.

    Christmas surprise

    My mother in law surprised me with a Faber locking ABR1 and insert kit. I actually took it off my list in favor of some model building supplies but got it anyway. I think it is going to solve the brightness issue I've been having with my LP (possibly due to the Resomax bridge. I haven't plugged...

    Newer Uriah Heep

    Outsider and Into the Wild are f*cking great! Mick Box's playing and tone are so much better now than the couple older albums I heard growing up.

    Dad & I going to see Frampton

    He was always a big fan, I kinda like him. Usually an adamant invite to a father-son event means "a talk". When do these talks stop, I'm nearly 40?

    Nashville to ABR

    So I'm guessing the hot bridge is the Faber? Right now I have a Graphtech resomax Nashville, but I keep seeing pics of LP's with the ABR and think it looks so much nicer. TP is Faber locking btw. Do you have any opinions on ABR style replacements?

    The stress of ownership?

    Since I purchased my LP I've been paranoid about the head stock breaking to the point of nightmares. I've owned maple necked guitars with no scarf joint and haven't worried thinking "it's a Gibson thing. Ibanez/Kramer/BC Rich necks don't break there." Maybe its OCD (diagnosed with it), but how...

    Heel question

    Can a regular LP be shaved to have a heel like an LP Axxess or are the neck joints totally different to allow for the shave? Also, are the Precision guitar LP kits good? Are there known issues when fitting the neck etc?

    Sanded neck advice

    So I got tired of my LP's neck feeling tacky and looked around the net. The consensus was to hit it with the 0000 steel wool like on my poly Ibanez necks. After the wool, I polished with 3M Perfect it II and then III, followed by Mother's pure carnuba wax. Is there anything else I should be...

    Picked up an SD Antiquity JB. Not sure if it is going into the 6 string Ibanez super strat which already has a modern JB, or the LP which has a BKP Holy Diver.
