    A small rant about Gibson pickups from a Gibson fan

    Bottom line you have a nice collection of LPs. Pickup tone ultimately is subjective. Also some pickups are just synergistic in certain guitars and less so in others. I found magic with a pair of Rewinds in one of my Brazilians. When I tried a second pair of Rewinds in my other Brazilian it...

    A small rant about Gibson pickups from a Gibson fan

    im surprised about your 2020 R0. To me the things I didn’t like about Custombuckers was they sounded a touch mushy and closed in. When you dig in, I didn’t get as much dynamic pop. They resembled a certain PAF flavor tonally but less so dynamically: they weren’t as muscular or vivid as I...

    A small rant about Gibson pickups from a Gibson fan

    The PAfs and early Pat#s I’ve played and own are the opposite of dark. Of the ones I tried I’d say the hallmark is their clarity and openness. Afaic, this midrange dark bullshit sounds like the Internet blather of some clueless person who assumes if it’s old n vintage it must sounds midrangey...

    A small rant about Gibson pickups from a Gibson fan

    i have two vintage Gibsons with PAFs and early Pat#s. I also have Rewind, OX4, Stephen Designs and Wizz in most of my R9s and replicas. In fact I have replaced the Custombuckers in all my R9s except my last two new R9s as the Custombuckers in those guitars are as good as any boutique pickup...

    Explanation For Finish Peeling on Murphy Lab LPs

    That’s about as far from proof of anything I’ve seen bud. Bottom line, if Gibson ever offered old growth mahogany they would be touting it in every marketing brochure and video not to mention charging a premium for it like they do with Brazilian. Get real, this “good wood years“ nonsense is...

    I think I need a bigger couch

    you forgot “go ahead”. If you can just go ahead and sent me the times you’re not home, that would be great. lol.

    Explanation For Finish Peeling on Murphy Lab LPs

    They didn’t use old growth Honduran mahogany in those years. That’s unsubstantiated Internet blather. Not to say yours isn’t a fine guitar but most of the pre 2012 Historics I’ve played and owned, well over 50, were by in large tonally numb sounding definitely softer, muddier than my vintage...

    Hey all. Have a question about an R8 that got slightly damaged in shipping

    Replacing the pots is easy. Easier than a pickup swap as you don’t even have to loosen the strings. All you need is a few simple tools and basic soldering skills. As far as the finish is concerned those character marks look cool. Like very natural stress checking

    Hey all. Have a question about an R8 that got slightly damaged in shipping

    Good for you for keeping a great guitar and not letting some superficial damage otherwise ruin a HNGD. As been said, pots are easy to replace and replacement knobs should be easy to come by as well Filing a claim is a pita but don’t let that steal any of the enjoyment of your new axe! and...

    Joe B. just spoke about the Murphy Lab

    lmfao, you really can’t help yourself can you. You should work for the media as you like to take the most extreme examples of finish issues and then dump them and your vile against Gibson and ML across this entire forum. Condescending? In my first few posts responding to your first thread...

    Joe B. just spoke about the Murphy Lab

    Repeating themselves? I’ve posted a half dozen or so posts about the ML. You on the other hand post thread after negative thread about the MLs, across multiple forums. You never waste an opportunity to post that scare picture of extreme finish flaking. The only one trying to convince...

    Joe B. just spoke about the Murphy Lab

    A nice well measure post. I think some of the continuous ML whining is way over the top at this point. I don’t particularly care for Joe Bs music but personal attacks, is that necessary, While I do believe much of the initial anger over some of the MLa was justified, now it seems like...

    Joe B. just spoke about the Murphy Lab

    Is Mayall considered a great guitarist? He certainly was a pretty mediocre vocalist imho. He did have great taste in putting together guitarists for his band. Clapton, Green and Taylor during their Bluesbreaker tenure put out some of the tastiest blues licks to ever come from a Les Paul.

    Loving my ML, and my Murphy Painted

    Previously, I would have completely agreed with your assessment of the Custombuckers vs boutique PAFs. In all my other Historics including two Brazilians a CC and a 60th Wildwood I replaced the Custombuckers with boutique PAFs and with rare exception the improvement was noticeable particularly...

    Loving my ML, and my Murphy Painted

    So far the finish has remained intact. Besides for me, it’s all about tone, feel and the flame.
