I've been thinking down the road about installing aged Grover tuners onto my Custom Shop TV Model. Purely aesthetics. I know that the Grover 502C drop into a Les Paul headstock without drilling, which I do want, but I don't see them coming in an aged nickel version.
Does anyone know...
This is what appears underneath my TV reissue's pickguard. I thought that the long neck tenon would stretch farther down, but maybe I am not correct with that perception. Now looking forward to the Mojoaxe pickguard from @Danelectro
I'm looking for a vendor that makes very colorful / vibrant tortoise shell pickguards.Single ply and transparent like the originals. I have a Custom Shop TV reissue single cut and I want to purchase one. What do you recommend? Thanks!
I've noticed that some of the Custom Shop Les Paul and SG Junior cases are now coming in a black/gold combination now, along with a black covered CoA. This looks like the shift from 2020 to 2021 years. Anybody hear of a reason for these changes? Thanks.
I am looking to purchase an all tube amp (new or slightly used), with power between .5 - 4W, and a headphone jack (for practice). This is for at home practice at this point - an apartment so I have to be careful about volume. Any recommendations?
Thanks again for all the advice in the other thread! Here are the end results. Both pickups are a pair I purchased out of a 2019 R7.
The installed bridge pickup was done first --two coats of white vinegar and while that helped, it wasn't making a big enough of a change. So I bought muriatic...
I just had a Gibson Custombucker Alnico 3 unpotted installed in my VOS Junior. Sounds great, but the cover is unaged and the rest of the guitar has aged parts from the factory.
I don't want to mess up a great thing, but I was curious whether it is possible to age the cover while...
I was surprised to find out recently that Gibson has shipping and distribution agreements with dealers outside the U.S. I assumed that Gibson wanted to sell as many guitars as possible, which would also include selling European located Gibsons and selling them to American customers. But I'm told...
It took a special guitar for me to sell my Lukas Nelson Junior (which is fantastic in its own right!), but here it is. This is a 2018 Junior 1958 Reissue in Sunshine, modded at the Custom Shop with Grovers, humbucker, coil split wiring on the volume knob, and the special VOS finish in...
I'm looking to purchase a single ply LP Junior TRC - the flat one that is on the Custom Shop Junior, for example. Not the thicker single ply that shows up on the lower end Juniors made over the past 6 or so years. Pictures are desired. Thanks.
Took delivery on this guitar yesterday (built late June) and can't say enough good things about it:
1. Guitar finish is fantastic. Not a cheap satin finish. The vintage sunburst color really shines in the morning light.
2. The build quality is equal to any Custom Shop Junior or Special that I...
With Led Zeppelin I playing in the background, here's a bit of an update on the Junior I purchased a month or so ago. And yes, pictures!
I really liked the stock Gibson P90, but I had always wanted a Seymour Duncan Custom Shop "Humbucker Under P90 Dogear." So I had one built. There is...
I want to get your opinion about the Gibson P-90 from the mid 1980s. I purchased a 1986 Les Paul Junior in Cherry, which I love. It is stock except for the Lollar P-90. The pickup and electronics sound great. The original P90 came with the guitar (the clear bobbin).
I'm looking to purchase a 1986 - 89 Les Paul Junior in Sunburst. Single or Double Cut is fine with me. As close to stock as possible. Condition depends - would prefer one in the good - very good range and up (given that condition is subjective). Send me a pm and I'll get back to you...
This is the wiring and capacitor inside the 1986 Les Paul Junior I just purchased. It has a Lollar P-90 installed, so I'm curious whether the wiring is non - stock too. Never heard of Jupiter. Thoughts? Thanks!
