Nope. Not a one.

good news for anyone in the usa, though

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

That's a pretty nice colour combo... I usually prefer maple fretboards, but that sort of turquoise-ish colour is one of my favourites with rosewood

Question for the G&L crowd - I just picked up a USA ASAT Special (for about the price of a used Tribute, I'm guessing the guy didn't know what he had) in great condition except for the jack that seems to cut out a bit. I've read the G&L instructions on removing the jack, and if I'm reading it right, the jack isn't super easy to remove, and the nut seems to be on the inside of the cavity. The threads I've read seem to instruct tapping a reamer into the jack itself and twisting to get loose - this seems odd to me. I've already attempted to use pliers to twist a bit, all to no avail. I've ordered a standard jack with an oval baseplate and plan to install that for easier maintenance down the road - should I be manhandling the existing jack to get it out?

It's a 2003 - I'll grab some pictures tomorrow as soon as I can. I strung it up with 11's and gigged it yesterday after picking it up, didn't have issues until a few songs in and ended up doing a double wrap with the cable to keep the jack from slipping.

Edit: here are a couple quick snaps

Ah, the dreaded Barrel Jack. Is there not a control cavity directly on the back of the guitar? Usually those do, and it's sort of hand gymnastics to get a wrench in there proper to undo it. I'd highly recommend converting that to a regular plate jack. It's a cheap enough mod.

Here's a great site with step by step pdf's on what to do.

The G&L community oddly has a lot of very specific support from it's users. Great company, good players.

Yep, that was the site I had looked at. I've perused those pages to make sure before I mangled the jack, but it looks like I have no choice. It doesn't have the plate on back, which makes it that much more of a pain. Otherwise, it's a sweet guitar! I've already got the jack/plate ordered for the swap.

you might be able to pry it out with a coat hanger hook that is tweaked to fit in there better .... that's how the tech did it at the G&L dealer , might depend on how stuck it is but mine came right out , he did have the control plate off so he could see the back side of ot ... I've had a few changed over to plate
