    Swapping pickups out on my standard - looking for wiring options

    I'm swapping out some Duncans for DiMarzio, primarily for aesthetic reasons. Can anyone point me in the right direction for wiring and pots/caps understanding? I understand this is a great opportunity to upgrade pots/caps but I don't know much about this. Treble bleed, 50s wiring, no idea...

    Very non-LP purchase - usa charvel San dimas

    This thing is a long of fun, super light and easy to play. feels like wearing sweatpants whereas playing a Les Paul is more like wearing jeans. it belonged to a good friend of mine that never bonded with it (modern metal head, looking for hotter pickups and a floyd) so I took it off his hands...

    NGD + membership renewal

    Hey all - I'm pretty happy to report that i'm back in the game as well. I had been playing primarily through an avid 11r and become uninspired with playing. I picked up a couple of new guitars this year but this last piece of gear really got me back into playing and into my les pauls. I...

    someone catch me up to speed - are new standards no longer weight relieved?

    Hey all - I've been out of the game for a few years. I was looking at LPs and I noticed the traditional is no longer offered, and if I'm reading correctly the standard model is a true solid-body? can anyone confirm this? If so, when did Gibson start doing this? Sounds like a step in the right...

    Buzzing coming from headstock (possibly tuners?)

    Hey all - I have 97 custom, fantastic guitar but it has an annoying buzz that comes from the headstock when I play/strike chords. It doesn't come through the amp, but I still want it addressed. Is this common? I was hoping perhaps tightening or reassembling the tuners would help. Not opposed...

    Chicago winter gave my custom a set up

    I haven't played my guitars much this winter but the climate has certainly done a number on them. My custom however, was almost in perfect tune when I picked it up and kept tune just fine. Only difference is that it was set up and tuned to eb. It was in relative tune when I picked it up, just a...

    Les Pauls as the centerpiece to my livingroom!

    I moved into a new apt w/ my gf. I wanted to have a room for my music stuff, but we ended up moving into a 2 bedroom apartment (idea was to have a guest bedroom, and a third room for my music crap). Solution? Livingroom is now the music lounge. TV is off to the left in the corner of the room lol

    It's a couple days late as I was waiting for the monitors to arrive. I picked up an 11r and a pair of rockit6 monitors. I finally stopped kidding myself about a tube amp being ok for an apt (even at 5 watts lol) Guitar is not new :)

    I feel like I have permission to buy a used R7

    :laugh2: a few weeks ago I got a job offer that would be a big game changer salary wise, and there is a bonus that I am pretty excited about. Last night my gf came over and I told her I bought a gold top from CME. She just asked 'how much' and I paused and said '2400', she laughed and look...

    Really dumb question: How do I clean up (and avoid) swirl marks/light scratches?

    I've always bought used guitars and they've always been all swirled up. Never bothered me too much until I got my LPs, I hate to see the finish all dulled up by swirl marks. How do I remove them, and how do I keep that stuff from coming back (assuming I can remove it)

    1969 SG in the house

    It belongs to a friend of mine. It used to belong to her father, he passed away and now it spends most it's days in a case. It came up casually in conversation that she has this guitar (I had no clue). Long story short, I took it home and cleaned it up and got it back to playing condition. She's...
