    What Epiphone pickups are these? Braided wire?

    I bought a set of Epiphone ProBuckers off a chinese seller on eBay a year ago for $49. They were the real deal. While it’s possible to fake a set of Epiphone ProBuckers, the time and effort to make the ones in question leads you to believe they are the real deal. It’s possible. But who would...

    Pick Up Height

    Watch Uncle Joes video. I start with the pickup heights fairly low then adjust up from there until it sounds like Awesome.

    Going to check out a Les Paul today

    I’m jealous of you folks being able ot walk into a GC and walk out with a guitar. I should have learned to play right handed guitars instead of lefties.

    Translucent Cherry Classic has arrived... Any owners?

    My Classic has the Gibson 61s which really sounded nice in the LP. I didn’t have the same great tone with those pickups in an SG. To me the 61s have that vintage PAF tone with a bit more bite, but that bite is tamed by the larger LP body compared to the SG. I didn’t care about the push pulls but...

    Sorry mate that’s crap. Maybe small claims court? Might be worth the court fee to get your money back.

    Shit happens. Covid blew up a lot of businesses. They definitely owe you the 200 tho regardless of the new owners or not.

    Translucent Cherry Classic has arrived... Any owners?

    I had one (2020) - swapped the bridge pickup for a T-Top clone - sold the guitar for financial reasons - wishing I didn’t do that. Great guitar you’ll love it.

    Have you considered black top hat knobs with gold inserts? That might just work with that top. Also consider burstbucker 2/3 combo or a TTop bridge and burstbucker 1 neck.

    My 60's Standard Has Returned

    I keep whatever nut is installed unless I can’t make it work for me. Then it’s Bone. Bone is an excellent choice. You’re right it’s absolutely an improvement

    Burstbucker Pro is awful!

    Magnet swap. Put in alnico II magnets. Bam! Now you have Burstbucker 3.

    Us lefties don't get to get these too often

    I have found Gibson catered to lefties in 2013, 2017-2020 pretty nicely. The 2017-8 models can be had in lefty or righty in almost every lineup including Explorers and Flying Vs. Prior to that I think lefties were much more of a limited run for a week or two at the factory.

    Mojo overdose. My battered 92

    Newbe with question about pups.

    Turn your guitar tone knobs down to 5. Try it. It’s the cheapest mod you’re ever going to have. I recommend Vineham 6070s. They are Gibson T Top clones which would be the pickups Used in the 70s.I have personally used those pick ups through an Origin 20 amp and they sound amazing

    NGD: 2013 Gibson LPJ Pro

    I think the Pro versions were GC/MF special runs of the LPJ model. Much nicer with proper pickup covers. And someone posted above, the maple necks are the secret weapon. Didn’t realize how much I liked the maple necks until I didn’t have one. Just picked up a 2013 LPJ for $500 because of the...

    Why don't LPJ 2013 pickups have the Gibson USA symbol? (490R 498T)

    I just pulled a set from a 2013 LPJ and they only had the Gibson USA stamped onto the metal backing plate. No stickers or date tags. No model info. I measured the output and i’m confident they are the 498/490 combo. I’ve seen SGJ come with stickers on the pickups but the two or three I went...

    Neck Pickup Epiphany

    I don’t measure mine. I just start it low and adjust by ear from there. They are usually just above or even with the pickup ring which works well for my amp and setup.

    Question on new case and pickups for my The Paul

    If you want to keep your Gibson all Gibson, a 490 with an alnico 5 magnet is the ticket to T-Top heaven.
