    Now this is bloody ridiculous! Gibson mixed up the P90s!

    Last year I bought a Les Paul Special Tribute 2015 with P90 Pickups mainly because I liked the combination with a maple neck and the price was reasonable. With the chunky neck profile this guitar had a nice feel and acoustic tone to it. But something was wrong there. See, my main tone...

    ABR1 - the real McCoy?

    Hi folks, I came across this video and half way through fell asleep. Guess you guys know this already. FOUR UNCLES ABR1 REPLICA BRIDGE-MOST ACCURATE IN THE WORLD What my OCD spotted right away was a huge discrepancy between the old original and their remake. I went back and this time tried...

    OGD Les Paul Deluxe (Tell me you hate it...)

    Hallo, Gold Top aficionados, here's my 2015 Deluxe Special. Came to me mid 2019, was modded (Schaller tuners, electronics removed and rewired 50 style, no coil taps). I'm a big fan of these 2015 necks and those Robotuners from Hamburg, Germany. So I reinstalled the original hardware, back to...

    Braz Rosewood from my wife

    I know you guys get mad about that stuff. Now today my wife came with a huge gift: genuine old - probably 35 to 40 yrs old BRAZILLIAN ...but see here It appeared from a long forgotten drawer in the attic from her mother. Guess it'll make for some nice rosewood bridges, TRC, etc.

    NGD Larry Corsa One Off

    From all 32 Les Pauls in my collection, this one is supposed to be number 3. When I got it two days ago it had some issues. Since there are no seasoned timbers available these days anymore, humidity changes during long shipping distances make for drastic reactions on computer controlled dried...

    Beware of seller eastislandcrew

    this Japanese seller on ebay can not be trusted! After nearly three years of searching the web on July 24 I bought a 'YAMAHA SA2000S' and paid immediately. Next day I got his message that the neck is slightly warped and truss rod is at its limit - string height no longer adjustable. Therefore...

    1995 Orville Les Paul Standard '59 SATIN cherry sunburst

    Never saw an Orville MiJ in her satin home outfit? Well, here she comes in all her glory without her original shiny disco make up. To make a long story short and cut through the BS: I bought this beauty when her owner couldn't bear the look of the deep cracks in the top coat anymore. These in...
