    The 2011 LP Traditional (Standard?) Faded Mega-Thread

    I buy them at one of my local shops (Avenue Guitars)... they keep a bunch loose in a drawer and sell them individually if you want, I seem to remember that they're All-Parts brand. some posts about them...

    NGD: 2014 SG Special (120th Anniversary)

    Cjsinla, both the '13 Standard and the '14 Special had point to point, no PCB. I got the store to pull the cover off each time to check that when I was trying them out.

    NGD: 2014 SG Special (120th Anniversary)

    I saw I only had one more payment to go on the 2013 Standard I picked up at Long & McQuade this time last year (http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/other-gibsons/289947-ngd-2013-sg-standard.html) ... so I thought I'd pay it off today and throw this 2014 SG Special on account while I can still get...

    Tube Screamer question

    Sorry, didn't update this. Here's why I kept and returned what I did (go back a bit in this thread to see what this project was about)... OD808 and TS-808 had the same mid bump and mid presence (my entire reason for wanting one) on the recored tracks in the mix. The difference was the...

    Tube Screamer question

    Just got back from L&M. I returned the OD808 and the TS-9 and kept the TS-808. I'll probably actually buy the OD808 again later in the summer for a different flavor in my recorded tracks. They each had their strengths in the mix on different types of tracks. Will expand on all of it later...

    Tube Screamer question

    I was talking to one of my go to guitar guys at L&M today and he said the Ibanez (can't remember which of the two I have here) has a bit more bottom end too... which is probably not what I'm after for the way I'm using it. I'll find out soon enough... 3 more days to complete my project ;)

    Tube Screamer question

    Batman, thanks man... but I want to use as close as possible to exactly what I know my favorite producer/engineer uses in his band's recordings when he does use one... which is an original vintage Tube Screamer. I've used that approach with all the gear I've purchased and it hasn't failed me...

    Tube Screamer question

    I have here with me right now... Ibanez TS9 Ibanez TS-808 Maxon OD808 ... all new. One rented and two purchased from my local L&M. By this coming Saturday, all but one will be returned. I'm a recording enthusiast with alot of high end gear in my studio and have recently returned to...

    NGD 2013 SG Standard

    Yeah, I haven't been able to put mine down, it's a blast to play. I put D'Addario XL 11-49's on it tonight (my music genre uses lowered and dropped tunings)... the neck setup was perfect with the factory strings at standard tuning (we did a quick and dirty setup in the store when I was trying it...

    NGD 2013 SG Standard

    Thanks, man. I like it! I sliced the tip of my finger the other day with a utility knife so I need it to heal before I can really put this thing through the ringer ;)

    New SG Standard

    Happzz, thanks for posting your SG, it helped finalize my decision. I won't take up any more space in your thread, bro... I started my own... ... because I bought one today ;) http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/other-gibsons/289947-ngd-2013-sg-standard.html

    NGD 2013 SG Standard

    The '05 SG Special Faded I bought new back in '06 got me back into Gibson when I was on a budget back then, but as soon as I started collecting my Les Pauls, it got stuck in the corner of my recording studio and hasn't been played for years. In fact, I got seriously into a couple other hobbies 3...

    New SG Standard

    Yeah, my LP's have nibs, I don't have a problem with them... it definitely doesn't look right to me without them. Going to see if Long & McQuade has any '13's kicking around in the system tomorrow... that way I can throw a C note or two down on it, bring it home, and finance it until I'm back to...

    New SG Standard

    That's what I wanted to know, thanks. :thumb: The 2013 or 2014 then is exactly what I've always wanted in an SG standard if I get one in cherry and remove the pick guard. My '05 Special Faded got me back into Gibson several years ago when I was on a budget, but as soon as I started...

    New SG Standard

    Happzz, would you happen to know if it's a solid finish underneath the pick guard? That is, no visible channels for wire routing... so it can go sans pick guard?

    Gotoh SD-90 MG SL Locking Tuners Installed in my 02 Standard

    Hmmm. It was 3 years ago and second hand so I don't think I'll get much help there, and I don't even know if it has faulty parts or just has a problem with the design. When I looked into it at the time, I saw that I wasn't the only one with the issue. I came across someone with more than one set...

    Gotoh Vintage Locking tuners owners... help!

    No, it's ok ;) ... like I said, it's nice to finally get some input on this and verification (from intRsoul) that I wasn't crazy (at the time).
