    Custom Buckers - not a fan? Am I the only one?

    this, Gibson named them "custom" bucker as the recipe is tuned, according to Gibson, after particular sets they try to emulate, I have found the CC ones different from R9 ones, the best set was on my Rosie (shame I sold her) but I think its the wood more than anything else that makes them...

    Broken mirrors from Murphy Lab

    LPC vol at 0... still sound.. how to fix it?

    Hi I am very partial to early 90s Les Paul Customs, I scored a '93 bone stock at a good price, I tested it and sounds like my n.1 ('92 LPC) only thing different is that, either pickup, with volume at 0 you still hear sound from the amp (at very very low volume).
