    Titanium saddle users: do they actually work in finicky guitars?

    Fel Fellow Lester Lovers, Seasons greetings to all an I hope everyone is as safe and sane as can be, in what’s left of this dirty, nasty, germ fest of a year. And now to business: I have a finicky Les Paul (my Halcyon signature, a 2014 USA model w/ gold hardware and a Zamac Tune o Matic) that...

    Converting 2 pedals into a single dual pedal?

    Hi folks, I’ve been hooked on dual channel overdrives since I started gigging again as a sad old bugger. I never even used pedals in my young rocker years because I thought they looked stoopid and of course, were for ‘posers’. I find I can only work with dual drive pedals that have flip flop...

    Gibson Les Paul Halcyon stock electronics worth spending dough to replace?

    Hi folks, I have the below guitar, and the 4 pots sound noticeably worse than on my other 3 Gibson USAs: when engaged the vol and tone pots provide that muffly ‘blanket on amp’ tone that forces me to ride all the controls at 10, all the time...

    Mastodon Signature Les Paul (Halcyon) stock electronics question.

    Dear MLP chums, I have the above guitar and have found the pickups I want, BUT I’m still not convinced I’m getting the most out of it... After reading several threads such as the one below, it seems that the electronics on the USA lines can be improved. Note I know nothing about these things...

    Iron Gear equivalents of the Seymour Duncan range?

    Folks, I’ve only recently started reading about Iron Gear pickups, which frankly seem a bit too good to be true I’m familiar with SDs having owned and enjoyed the Full Shred set, the 59n, the JBb, and the Custom SH-5b. For example, I’ve read plenty that the IG Blues Engine is their take of...

    USA Les Pauls resale value: stock pickups?

    Hi all! I am a rare poster so apologies if this thread is in the wrong forum. Like many fellow MLP’ers, I have a surplus of Lesters... I love them all (see signature) and am lucky that don’t need to sell any to help fund important life stuff (a new liver, rent, etc.). However, I tell myself...

    Anyone use the SD ‘59 set in their Les Paul Standard Double Cut?

    Hello folks, It’s been a while since I’ve posted, hope everyone is well. Later today I am picking up my latest unnecessary GAS purchase… a gorgeous green Gibson Les Paul Standard Double Cut (2004), fully stock, with the 490R / 498T pickup set. I tried it out at low volume on a very small amp...

    Were DeLuxe's more commonplace in the UK in the 70s than other Les Paul's?

    Hello everyone, I'm a bit of a history freak. I live in the UK, and a friend of mine who was around in the 70s, let me play a couple of his Les Paul deluxes from that era (nice enough wasn't that amazed). Also, I know that many of my 70s UK heroes such as Adrian Smith, Scott Gotham, Townsend...

    Edwards players out there? Opinions on my rig please!

    I don't know much about guitar gear, which is why I'm here asking the above. I play in a kick ass alternative rock band with an Edwards Les Paul 59 replica (the Standard 92 model with USA Seymour Duncans JB/59) running through a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe always set on clean channel (the chrome...
