    Question regarding the nut (with photos)

    Obviously with the E-A-D the slots were done on a Plek "hump day"! And a newly hired worker did a custom hand job rounding the edges... LOL. It sucks. :wtf: ...If you luv the guitar, get it fixed under warranty using a bone nut.

    What has happened to The Used Guitar Market Pricing?

    Any of you lost interest in looking and buying "things"? I'm an accidental collector and unfortunately, I cannot be bothered selling items I do not use... so guitars just pile up in the garage and closets. Although, I sometimes checkout the local CL or Reverb. Some sellers advertised the same...

    Pole height

    With the screws lowered to the surface of the pickup cover, and If the whole pickup was lowered quite a bit to increase clarity, the volume between strings may not be of the same volume level due to distance from each string. Turn your amp at giging level, and strum all the strings. You will...

    Tiny "scratch"? on the fretboard binding of my Les Paul

    If it bothers you, easy fix is a dab of super glue, let dry, sand (600 grit) flat on a small flat wood, then polish with a non silicon polishing compound. Use a nice soft 4" horse hair paint brush to dust the guitar... easy less than 5 seconds. Besides it's good putting that old paint brush...

    HELP! - Overpolishing Les Paul Standard Faded w/ Virtuoso?

    It looks good on your photos! It's better than satin, and not plastic looking as a very glossy guitar. BTW, satin nitro is not the same chemical composition as gloss nitro. If you want shinny, get a gloss nitro painted guitar.

    Volume knobs on top??

    55+ years of Gibson playing, it's a difficult innate habit to change. However, you should do whatever you prefer to make great music!

    Ever Put Old Pickups in a New Les Paul?

    The way I see it, a PAF sticker is more of a "desire" for the myth than actual tone. Being an old fart like me, I've got a number of PAF's and they are not as impressive as the newer pickups or PAF copies. Besides, I still don't know what a PAF tone sounds like anyway. I still tweak and sound...

    pls recommend a wireless transmitter

    I've Been using Xvive for over a year. It works most of the time but once in awhile, it burps while playing. I just change to another channel as a remedy. Sometimes, it just sounds more digitized or like a solid state amp. That's when I go back to my analog coaxial cable. This could all be my...

    So 10's It Is Then

    Since mid-sixties, I've been using hybrid 10 for Fender and Gibson scales. The heavier lower E, A, D just feels and sounds better.

    Think we take this tone thing a little too far?

    Unfortunately, I spent more time on the hardware than creating music. With the advent of forums like this, I got swept away on searching for "da tone" and I still don't know what tone everybody's talking about. Although, I do enjoy tweaking and trying out the physical aspect of guitar build...

    Nitrocellulose questions

    I've successfully used 3M Scotch Brite grey.. same grit as 0000. Green is too rough on nitro. It will need periodic light aplication. Also used it on bodies to remove shine.
