    Standard 60’s video, flipped bridge pickup doesn’t sound too bad!

    Now that I know I’m keeping her, I thought I’d share I video I made of some tones with my new Standard 60’s if anyone curious to hear the pickup that caused all the fuss. As you guys know, the bridge pickup was put in backwards and of course in my excitement I didn’t notice in the shop...but in...

    New Les Paul. Possible fake pickups? Tampered? Debating returning.

    Hi guys! So a few of you might know I recently got a new Les Paul standard 60’s from Guitar Center. It’s an awesome guitar, but after bringing it home I found out the bridge pickup was put in backwards, as seen here. At first I assumed this was a Gibson QC issue or factory mistake but I got...

    Is this a full Custom Shop or just a fancy standard? Red Sparkle CS LP

    So I heeded the advice from my last thread and tried to find a Custom Shop like the G0 I liked, but with a price and look that suited me better as the G0 was a bit overpriced and I didn't love the top. I may have found it. I tried out this today. Its a used 2019 Guitar Center exclusive Custom...

    New Standard 60's vs. Custom Shop G0, thoughts?

    Sorry, I keep making so many threads. I just couldn't find one comparing these two specifically. I recently found a 2017 Custom Shop G0 Les Paul and love it, looks gorgeous, sounds great, plays like a dream (i've played this up against multiple LPs now, and it always won out). Price is a bit...

    I may have found a Norlin LP custom, does it seem legit?

    Hi guys, I found a posting for a 1977 Les Paul Custom in red. It’s not local, but it’s a few hours driving distance, so I can pick up in person and lay me hands on it before buying but I’d only make the drive if it’s really worth it. The seller has multiple good reviews on Reverb and seems very...

    Your experiences buying Norlin LPs

    Just wanted to ask, I’m in the process of finding my first Les Paul. Apologies for the many threads. Trying to decide between historics, standards, classic, customs. But several folks have recommended I seriously consider the Norlin era guitars. Im looking to get a Les Paul with a slimmer neck...

    Going rate for used R0?

    Recently saw a Reverb listing for a used R0 that sold for $3000 and it was gone within a day. But the other listings seem to be listed for >$3800, and this thread https://www.mylespaul.com/threads/market-price-for-r0.446875/ seems to say that $3500-$4500 isn't uncommon for an R0 depending on the...

    Help choosing my first Gibson Les Paul

    Hi! First time posting in a long while but I’m finally in the market for my first Gibson Les Paul and could use some advice. I mainly play hard rock and hair metal, e.g. Motley Crue, Guns N Roses, AC/DC, Ozzy. So a Les Paul more suited to heavier genres is what I’m looking for. Budget is...

    Worth getting this Les Paul?

    Hey everyone. Needed some thoughts on a used 2017 Gibson LP studio. I’ve had an epiphone LP from 10 years ago which I love. But I’ve always kept an eye out for a good deal on a Gibson and I finally found a used 2017 LP studio on my local store that I liked for $750. It plays and sounds great and...

    Question about Transparent Amber color varieties

    HI everyone, just posting out of curiosity. This is my baby, given to me as a special gift around 2005 or 2006. At the time I was looking for honey burst, but I stumbled upon this color at the store and it looked beautiful and played well, so I took her home. :) But I've always been confused...

    Take my Les Paul to college?

    I'm headed off for my first year of college this Fall and it's pretty far from home. I was told not to take anything really valuable or something I wasn't prepare to risk losing or getting damaged. I'll have to live with others in a dorm, including a roommate as well, so i'm not sure what to do...

    New gear time. =D

    It seems I have some extra money to spend on a pedal. :fingersx: Maybe some of you guys have seen my fuzz thread but if you haven't I was going for David Gilmour's earlier tones. Anywho after much searching i've pretty much found the right fuzz units to choose from. It seems however I have...

    Down to two I guess...

    Finally saved up some cash and got a summer job so I can afford some proper gear. I have about $300 or so to spend on a pedal. Overdrive wise my Classic 50 has finally worked out and I got a delay as well. However I want that David Gilmour fuzz tone. I'm sure most are familiar with the tones...

    Crunch Box and OCD?

    Does anyone know what the main differences might be between an M.I. audio Crunch Box and the Fulltone OCD? I haven;t found any in stores nearby to try but from the videos i've seen the pedals sound very similar so i'm curious to know if one is better or if they are both the same. MI Audio...

    Epiphone electronics...

    Basically when my toggle switch is in the rhythm or middle position the sound of the guitar fluctuates and fades away. I thought it was the neck pickup but most people are saying it's just a wiring thing. Anyways I plan to take it to a tech soon but now, i'm wondering if it's worth just...

    Thomas 70's Crybaby

    I have a chance to buy a 70's Thomas Crybaby wah for $100. However to get it I need to sell my Vox V848, I was just wondering if the Thomas Crybaby was good compared to my current model Vox and if it's worth selling to get. If I stick with the Vox i plan on upgrading to a Fulltone pot...

    Pedal help please.

    Ok I need some help. In a guitar store close by I found an original Military green Sovtek Big Muff for $130. I was looking for a pedal to compliment my Peavey Classic 50 for some time and heard these were good. I really like Pink Floyd both the early and later eras. I'm also a huge Zeppelin...

    To trade in my LP???Or not???

    Well I was at the guitar store today and just before walking out, I spotted a beautiful honeyburst Epiphone Plain Top. Didn't have time to plug it in, but the neck felt really good and it seemed to be straight, the guitar had a nice weight and the knobs and bridge seemed to be intact overall...

    I might be getting a pedal for my amp. :D

    Well recently I picked up a Peavey Classic 50 2x12 and it sounds great especially the cleans. The drive channel is good on it's own but i'd think some sort of fuzz or overdrive would compliment the amp even better for different sounds. Not sure whether to get a fuzz or OD though, i'm set on...
