GORGEOUS!!!! As much as I love my Frampton (and his of course), I really love the all black look, the his used to be in Humble Pie.

What pots/pups did you put in?


Thanks for the post 1981 LPC and :cheers2:

Thanks man. When I bought it the Shaws were already gone. It had a super distortion and a dirty finger - yuk. Replaced those a few years later with Classic 57s. The one in the bridge crapped out.... I think Lollar Imperials would be great. Two of the original 300K linear pots crapped out 20 years ago. I replaced all with 500K audio pots - that really made the neck position my fav position.

I'll bet the Lollar's would be great! I'd like to try Throbak 101s, but I don't know what I'd put them in? My '72/'54 Custom has the original pups in it from when my parents bought for me in '73, my Frampton has Duncan's in it wired to Frampton's specs, my '76 Deluxe has Bare Knuckle PG Blues in it, my R9 has Custombuckers in it and my Alex Lifeson 355 has Classic 57s in it, which I like a lot.

I guess I just need to get another LP? :laugh2:


Thanks for the post and :cheers2:

I got my Frampton back. (Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop 3 pickup Ebony) It's all set up just like I wanted it. More to come...
