    Wanted Gibson Les Paul Special or Junior in White!

    Wanted: A Gibson LP Junior in White. Ideally I’m looking for the limited edition “Nashville” series that had a faded, non-glossy finish and the flowery pickguard, but I’m open to other models. Must have a slim or 60s neck profile and a bridge P90. Preference for faded finishes and doublecut...

    Help identity a Japanese Les Paul style guitar

    Hey all! I'm looking for help identifying the origins of this guitar. All I know is that it was made in Japan. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Sunny Sunday = Guitar Picture Day

    The sun's out, I've been having a lazy weekend, and it occurred to me I've never tried to get a matching set of pictures of my guitars. A bit of running in and out of the house later, and here's the results... The Telecasters Chord 'Telecaster' - my first electric guitar. It's been upgraded in...

    NGD - Les Paul Gold Top 50's

    A Fender Telecaster in Butterscotch Blonde and a Gibson Les Paul Gold Top. That are the two guitars that I have always wanted. A dream for me. I remember when I was a teenager that I had photos of these two on the wall in my bedroom. Now, many years later, I have a good job and a family. And I...

    NGD: Choosing the right Les Paul (on a slight budget): Tribute, Studio, Classic

    So lately I've been wanting a new Les Paul for myself - since I already have a CS 57 Gold Top, I figured I'd try something new. So I went on an online shopping spree and bought three of the cheaper Gibson models: one Tribute, one Studio and one Classic. First, the Tribute is the cheapest of...

    Les Paul Fretboard Too Small For Neck - Feels Rough

    Well, I bought a guitar sight unseen. Maybe I shouldn't have? It's a Gibson, and it just arrived in the mail. The fretboard is perhaps a fraction of a mm too narrow for the neck, and it's rough from top to bottom on both sides. I've never played a guitar with this problem. I like the guitar...

    Anyone here have any experience with one of these? https://www.cortguitars.com/product/item.php?ca_id=101060&it_id=1608600211&page=1 Asides from some on Reverb these don't seem to be available at the moment, but they look interesting and I'm curious about how they play and sound.

    Double Cut Junior Build

    Hey guys, thought it was about time I start my own build thread after lurking for months. I've completed two guitars so far, a jazzmaster and stratocaster with a tele in the works but have recently acquired some nice mahogany and am starting a double cut junior and possibly a burst (my ambition...

    Should I Trade My Tele for a Les Paul Special...?

    Don't worry! I have a Custom Shop Tele coming in a couple of months, but when it DOES come, I'm thinking of trying to trade my current number one tele (2017 American Professional, ash, butterscotch) for a Les Paul, assuming that the new Custom Shop feels good enough to replace my American Pro as...

    NGD: Gibson Slash Goldtop

    Aka “Victoria”. A couple trades removed from a White Falcon that wasn’t working for me, I just swapped a 60s LP standard and some cash for another Gibson. 2020 Gibson Slash Goldtop. The other guy already removed the slash signature truss rod cover which saved me the 2 mins. The big 50s...

    Who gets the Bigsby? Tele or LP?

    I'm interested in adding a Bigsby to either my homemade Nashville Tele or my Gibson Les Paul Studio. Which one would you mod?

    New guitar day! (To me)

    2012 Epiphone Les Paul Standard. One of the 2 acceptable colors for LPs (IMHO) has a really pretty flaming on the back of the neck TBH. I’m pleased. I’m still currently unable to play. And will spend more time with her when I can. But I think she told me she wants Duncan Phat Cat P90s.

    NAD: Marshall Mini Jubilee 2525C

    Recently sold a bunch of gear to make space for new stuff. Usual player equipment addiction stuff… Ended up selling a 93 SG standard, and the buyer loved my Marshall SL5 he was testing it with and made me a very generous offer I couldn’t resist. That said, it felt like there was a void...

    Swapping P-90s for Mini-humbuckers in a Epi Les Paul

    I have a 2005 Epi Gold Top MIK that is a great guitar except for the muddy P-90 pickups and scratchy pots. I have been edging closer to buying a Les Paul but now I’m thinking about just replacing the P-90s with mini humbuckers and calling it good. What mini-humbuckers are worth looking at...

    Wow! Epiphone makes great guitars

    I recently sold a Gibson SG and regretted doing it because I still need something with humbuckers to keep in the studio. So I found a guy selling an Epiphone Les Paul Studio for cheap. It's the one without the binding. Anyway, I met up with him and got it. Looked it over a bit, but didn't spend...

    A Day at the Museum

    Took a few hours off to check out the new exhibit at the Bullock Texas History Museum. Y’all know Texas is worth learning about, you know Austin is the center of the galaxy, so it stands to reason even the State History Museum is cooler than most (all).

    Telecaster Note Attack vs. Strat/LP

    I have a telecaster and I notice that no matter what I've tried with the setup, it maintains more of a soft initial note attack (less transient) than my strat or les paul. The initial attack of the notes on the tele are more smooth/pillowy sounding than the punchy/sharp attack of my strat and...

    Hello all! Hope you're well, here's me again with another shuffle, objective was to feel comfortable riffing over the chords on different positions on the neck, I guess it came out a bit too long ---------------------- thanks for listening, comments and critiques are very much appreciated
