NGD 2020 R8
Just picked this up yesterday, 2020 R8 unused I’m away from home so have been playing it ‘as is’ straight from the box ! - I’ve been quite mixed about Gibson Reissues, played loads over the years as well as a few original bursts. This was gonna be & still might end up being a...
Okay so I recently got a set of Montys Pafs & put them in my Les Paul Traditional.
I was extremely surprised at how ‘flavoured’ (for want of a better word) they were.
The bridge especially is extremely quacky & has a cocked wah kind of sound to it.
My previous pickup experiences (in the same...
I have a set of these in my ‘14 trad with vintage wiring harness.
I originally hated them but after a harness change they sound fantastic.
Mine are both 7.5k they’ve seen off very stiff competition from boutique pickups.
I just wondered if anyone else had them & if any of the winders had...
OK, Last Nov I signed up with a builder to make me a LP replica, with the build beginning in Feb this year. Really nice guy, accommodated me asking loads of questions & specifying what I wanted. All with a yes, can do attitude.
I paid an initial deposit, sourced many of the parts, woods...
Hi to all on the forum.
The 'chance' has come my way to buy a 'mint' & it really is mint totally killer looking - 1999 r9
I was really, slowly looking/saving for a stellar r8 (maybe th etc)
Anyway, I saw this one & it weighs 7.0lb !!! (no chambering) Its a thing of beauty.
Anyway, I don't...
This is the switch ring (its the nos version:
Currently out of stock at Creamtone
I'm based in the UK but willing to post 'anywhere'.
Hi to all on the forum,
I've seen a really nice 58 historic from 2003. I wouldnt normally look back that far, but it looks like a real nice guitar.
It 'doesnt' have the Brazilian FB but I was just wondering are there any issues/differences with these compared to the current VOS guitars ie...
Interested in any thoughts on the sound of these pickups.
Do they sound a bit Alnico III'y in both the bridge & neck ?
If you click on the yt account you will find links to other paf comparisons from Monty's & Mojo Pickups.
Noticed in this magazine http://www.guitarconnoisseur.com/ Dave Stephens has written an article about his pickup winding research/exploits over the last 15+ years.
Be interested to hear others thoughts on what is written - left me a bit befuddled with contradictions tbh
Sorry for raising this one again. I want some as close as possible to vintage pup rings as possible. I'm here in the UK, I was thinking otpg rings or the art of aging rings from crazy parts . or should I be looking at something else ? I have no issues with importing.
I love my LP, but it has the very slightest of harsh trebles on the bridge (I'd like it to be a little smoother sounding).
Would changing out the modern zinc Nashville Bridge & tailpiece help alleviate the situation.
I don't necessarily want more sustain or a brighter sound, just a...
