That's just batshit crazy. You can get 3 Pelham blue Gibby classics (the P90 one) for that....

*EDIT* I hadn't clicked and didn't read the description properly. Thought it was just a random pelham blue LP. Now I realize its the one with the funky headstock from the CS. Then 7k isn't too crazy...

Thx man! Great playing guitar but I never play it. It has that really thin neck profile .. Just wall art at this point.

My friend hooked me up with this Dmarzio 36th pup. I love the Gibson Alnico 2's that I have in my JB Laz but.... I think I may swap the bridge pup for this 36th??? Here's what it would look like. Think I am going to put the pup into night??? It does look a little darker than the neck pup though.

OK Guys I got the pup installed and tuned up. Wierd situation going on here... The Gibson Alnico2 neck pup is 8.89 where as the 36th A5is pretty much the same output of 8.86 ... Now i am trying to balance then out so i have seperation in the two pups when in the middle position. I have the neck pup almost lowered through the pickup ring.. I like the way this new pup sounds I think it is going to stay right where it is.!! A little tweek here in there i can dial this in....

Going through my LP's a deciding what ones i will keep and what ones i will sell?? I don't plan on ever selling any of my 59's. I just about got them where I want them. The JB Laz is good for now but i am sure my OCD will make me either pull that cream 36 out or get another cream pup for the neck. The Gold one and my ADB are the heavy ones and the other 2 are much lighter. I would guess about 10-10.5 pounds on the ADB and the gold one. Prob about 8-9 pounds on the ASF and Lazz. I really need to order a scale to add to my guitar tool kit I am slowly creating.
