Be carefull peeling them off the backing they are very thin.

jockomo is a great guy to deal with he always keeps in touch not like some Ebayers that forget about you right after they get paid.

Make sure you post pics as soon as you get the parts on!

John

Will do, and thanks again buddy.

I also will be sure to leave jockomo a good ebay rating when I receive them.

That looks sweet! I really like the red dot inlays they fill out the whole scheme your going for.

I scratch my head at why so much modding for this guitar.

I mean, it looks... nice, i suppose. But you must have put a good chunk of change in it.

If my current bridge wasn't Chrome already... I just might.

It is finished.

But the bridge i posted is more chrome than that! Those special saddles give you increased sustain and harmonics!! I'm actually going to buy one of those eventually, since my bridge is wearing down. I dunno about that roller nut, Seems really sketchy.

Fender makes one that's slotted. The string notches appear to have things that like squeeze the string in the slot so it doesn't move around as much, thus keeping the string tighter, to keep it at a high tension. But that costs $50. Even more sketchy.

I will tell you the truth. Between the Planet Waves Auto-Trim tuners, and the Gibson TP-6 stop bar, this guitar stays in tune REALLY well.

Note that I usually have all tuning keys, running parallel to the headstock. This catches the most light, and gives off the maximum flash!

I use the TP-6 to make any minor adjustments, when the guitar gets out of tune.

It also keeps my fingers off of the chrome tuning keys, for maximum shiny life.

Nice!!

This may be totally a ballpark, And it's late so I'm kinda brain dead,

But what if you had like a tattoo artist use a engraver to "burn" a logo or something on the front or back?

I have had that thought. I play at church, so if I did, it would be this symbol:
The Jewish Menorah, with the Christian Fish, forming the Star of David.

I have had it priced already too:
http://www.stickergiant.com/custom_...3A25%20AM%20MST

Quote: #Q707614 valid through 5/8/10
Item: 588 Pro-Cut Custom Vinyl Decal <= 10 SI
Size: 2" X 4" Pro Cut
Colors: 0 Color(s)
QTY: 50 100 125
Price: $194.76 $389.50 $249.38
One time die charge: $36.75

A little pricey...
The smallest possible quantity I could order is 50, and along with the one time die charge, would put me at $231.51.

I only need one good vinyl sticker.
Not sure if 2" X 4" would be big enough either?

It would be fun to have it engraved on the truss rod cover, but I don't think that 'Chrome Plated' would do well? I think it would probably turn out funky.

Check local sign shops in your area. I used to make and apply vinyl lettering I had an 18" plotter and a 48" Plotter Printer and used to do it as a side job. I used to charge by the foot. Back 5 years ago it was 11.00 a foot and what ever I charged to do a logo or what ever. I also your to hand letter at one time as well as airbrush. I have been into everything! LOL Look in your yellow pages and find someone that will not charge you that much IMHO it's way too expensive. I kind of wish I never sold my equipment. I do plan on buying a desktop plotter soon. I get calls from people all the time to make lettering for them and I could use a few extra bucks.

Got mine a few months before that, in Guitar Center in Miami. Traveled over on holiday from South America where I was working, with total goal of picking up a Les Paul as you get them way cheaper in the States than back in the UK, where I'm from. Tried out a load of different models and this spoke to me, nice neck, nice weight, looks great - makes me want to play it whenever I see it, and I've got great great tone from it ever since. I've wanted to get another Les Paul in the ten years since, but when its come to it, I always feel like I'm cheating, as I don't really need any other. Great guitar.

Yeah I know...old thread....BUT new guitar for me. Picked up a 1997 Gibson Les Paul Special SL in a trade recently....I love the guitar. To me it feels and sounds great. I have had many Les Pauls and I really like this one the best even though it is low on the totem pole of Les Pauls. It's a keeper as long as I don't have back problems (I have in the past).
