    2014 120th Les Paul Standard

    Yea Moke ,already been looking into that , was going to go that way. All my other guitars either Floyd or Ibanez edge trems . I think the les Paul is a different beast, I think I’ll keep her just like she is . The les Paul is so different sounding than all my other guitars. Can sound vintage...

    2014 120th Les Paul Standard

    I have solved the problem, so I got a new bridge and a tusq xl nut.figured I didn't have experience working on Les Pauls,brought it to a Luthier. he had to demel out the holes in the tone pro ,he said he thought the nut was ok. It wasn't got it home the setup sucked ,still when out of tune just...

    mr_fender yes I've heard of the string butter ,and Holbet71, the single coil push pulls don't do any thing for me ,but the out of phase is interesting and the bridge tone pulled up is full on, bypasses the tone and any any volume pots ,so I could have both volumes at 3 and pull bridge tone and...

    Strat fret buzz coming through the amp

    Yes some times the neck pick up(if up to close to the string) can pull on the string, you can get some weird stuff going on , metallic over tones and of of tune. 15 thousands isn't bad and the action 3/32 isn't bad either. I have found some guitars because the way they resonate ,its just how it...

    Strat fret buzz coming through the amp

    If you haven’t tried yet ,lower the neck pick up ,or like you said bad fret job , frets or neck pick can create buzz and a metallic type of buzzing , neck relief should be around 10 thousands with a feeler gauge ,press down on first fret and 15th check in the middle of that . Around 7th or 8th...

    Creating Presets From Scratch...Wow So Much To Do!

    I guess its the way you look at it , pick a amp , speaker cab and treat it as a tube amp ,gain, bass, mid , treble, if you don't like the sound ,move to another amp. don't look at it there's so many parameters to change .after you find the tone ,then maybe go going deep into stuff .But I find...

    $250 Guitar vs. $1000 vs. $3000+

    I feel if you have a decent body wood ,good neck ,frets properly leveled and decent pickups and intonation set up right doesn’t matter. It’s a mind set , I spent 5000.00 dollars on this guitar ,it’s got to be great .Nope .just my opinion 😀
