    Traditional 2017 pots value.

    Recently a brend new traditional 2017 was added to my "collection" immediately I found that it plays way darker than my other LP.. almost "jazzy"... no sharp high end and a little "boxy".. Actually I like it, also because this way I have a different tone in my quiver. But I wanted to understand...

    NGD: Les Paul Traditional 2017

    Low frets on HP models

    ... do you like them or not ? To me they are the only real "cons" of my 2016 trad HP... I find they are really "difficult" to play... I know... someone would say they will help to improve my technique... well.. I prefer to play easy... and medium frets on all my other gibson works pretty well...

    volumes interaction in middle position

    I swapped the original PCB on my trad for a set of "vintage" cts and quality caps, wired '50 style. on all my gibsons when in middle position if you have both volumes at 10 the sound is a bit "dull" ( I don't know how to better describe it ) and when you roll back one of the volumes at 9 the...

    MGAS..( McGiver Acquired Syndrome )

    ..or Insane in the brain.. :wow: today I was lurking around my SG trying to "improve" the tone, as it was a little "muddy". Moreover the original nut slot for the High E is cut so near the edge of the board that the string sometimes fall out. so I bought a graph tech nut with a lesser...

    Fast-access heel vs Traditional

    I'm on the market to buy a new LP traditional 2016. I like the features of the "HP" line very much: better grade top and adjustable nut, Mop inlays. the only doubt I've is about the new fast access heel. It's seems to me that it takes out some "meat" in the critical joint between body and neck...
