    Refretting with Jescar 57110 ( opinions)

    Hi Everyone, I’m getting my Les Paul refretted with Jescar 57110 jumbo wire. The frets I’m replacing have a width of 2.7mm or 0.106 inches vs the Jescar’s wich are 2.79mm wide or 0.110 inches. Do you guys think that the small increase in width between the two is going to change the tone or...

    Scratched frets new guitar

    Hi everyone! I recently bought a Tokai premium Ls186 70th anniversary. It plays like butter and I’ve been playing it all day long for less than week now. Today I was inspecting the frets closely and I noticed that the frets under the A and D strings are very scratched. You can see the grooves...

    refretting LP with rounded crown frets

    Hi All, I'll be taking my LP for a refret tomorrow and I wanted to know your opinions on switching from flat top frets to rounded frets on a Les Paul. I love the tone of my LP but I dislike the shape of the frets. It's particularly painful when I do slides as my fingers get stopped by the...

    Intonation nightmare - G string

    Hi All, I’m having many issues with the intonation of my Les Paul. In particular with the G string. I have 0.06” / 0.15mm of neck relief right now and the notes are sharp on the lower frets and flat on the higher frets. It’s perfectly intonated at the 12th fret though. I wonder wether adding...

    Pole Piece Setup Advice - PAF Clones

    Hi All, I've been trying to setup the pole pieces of my OX4 PAF pickups and at this point I'm quite desperate. I tweaked the poles for days but still not happy the results and because I can't tell how they were originally I can't revert them. I have unmounted the pickups now and I'm about to...

    Faber Nashville to ABR Conversion Kit

    Hi All, I'm about to pull the trigger on a Faber ABR 1 bridge and I have a couple of questions. One of the saddles in the Nashville bridge of my Tribute LP is already maxed out , and I've read ABR1 bridges have less adjustment travel. So I guess I won't be able to intonate my guitar if I get...

    toggle switch and pots lenght for Tribute

    Hi All, I’m changing the electronics in my LP 2018 Goldtop Tribute. It came with Gibson’s PCB. I guess I need long shaft pots but I’m not 100% sure. I would like to be certain before I place an order for a prewired harness. As for the toggle switch, I thought every USA Lp used Switchcraft...

    Buzz first 3 frets

    Hi All, I bought a Les Paul tribute and I have just noticed some fret buzz on the first 3 frets and only on the G and D strings. There is more than enough clearance at the 1st fret when pressing the string at 3rd fret. I have already increased the relief to 0.10” and the string action at the...

    Replacing suggestions for 498T

    Hi All, I recently purchased a Les Paul tribute and I find the bridge pickup (498T) a bit too harsh sounding and trebbly for my taste. If I lower the volume, set the tone knob at 3 and use the middle switch position I can tolerate it, but it is definitely not what I'm looking for. On the other...
