Yeah, the caps are 1000v so they're a bit bigger than usual


I'm liking the 50s wiring so far. The middle OOP works better and I like the roll off on the tone knob much better.


But yeah, double creams and an abr. Definitely a good idea

Awsum Lester HTBDR; compliments the leopard skin beautifully

What pups have you put in?
#3764
Sweet. Don't usually like double creams but that's nice. Its amazing how much reflectors add to the look too. But yeah, lose the pickguard. I find it really tightens up the low end without it.
#3765
Yeah, it does a pretty good LP impression


I'll take the guard off in a bit.


EDIT: boom








I'll try to get some in natural light when the weather isn't such crap

That's fine, I can brag about my long neck tenon, PIO caps and matched pots, non-laminated rosewood fretboard, proper deep dish top and neck carve, abr bridge and pointers.


I'll try to get some pictures of the streaks.

Ok, I don't have a long neck tenon. I have an Rs Guitarworks 50's wiring installed in mine. Bumblebee caps. 550k pots all round. I think I might need some pointers. All the hardware has been changed to gold now, it's sweet. I'll get some pics I think.
#3779
Ok more pictures. Here is what it looked like when I first got it...




and here is what it looks like now. These are actually very good representations of the colours.







Nice, huh? Only original parts are the plastics and switch. That's actually the third set of tuners that guitar has had

You also have a nasty Nashville bridge and not an abr. Standard faded right? So weight relieved too? Tsk Tsk Tsk.


My harness costed me 30 bucks and it has vintage PIOs. I believe your RS has repros and costed you how much?


Corks sniffing check and mate.


(I kid)


^ looks nice

Nashville does the job. I have no reason to have an ABR. And yes, it's a standard faded. Weight relieved, no. It's actually chambered. It's extremely light and extremely resonant too. Sustains for days.
#3782
You do have a reason. It's a sin to have one on a Les Paul.


Pfft. Chambering is a fancy way of saying "weight relieved for pussies"

I knew nothing of Les Pauls when I bought this guitar. It was on ebay for £890 including shipping and I pulled the trigger. I guess I got seriously lucky. It's my favourite guitar I've ever played. And it was made on my birthday. Weird huh?

No shit you were lucky. I knew nothing about Les Pauls and I ended up with my least favorite guitar ever

I've had average guitars before, but I've never had one I can call bad. A lot of them have been very lifeless. Actually, the guitar I disliked the most out of all of the ones I've owned has been the most expensive. That Les Paul Supreme.

Yup. I didn't even know about reissues and stuff then. I just used to play the thing not research them.

At least I know what mineral streaks are now

Nice Lesters chaps

Boston's self titled album is amazing. One of my favourite albums right now. Especially Peace of Mind. Great song.

Boston is alright. I'm not a huge fan though.

I always go back to them when trying to find new music. I can't find anything so I'll say screw it and listen to Boston.

Izzy, I can recommend you stuff.

Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream.
QOTSA - Rated R.
Pearl Jam - Ten.

If you want something a bit more left field;

Portishead - Dummy.
DJ Shadow - Entroducing.
DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist - Brain freeze.
Jurassic 5 - LP
The National - Boxer.
The Pixies - Doolittle.

Yeah, if I hated the Gladiator I wouldn't have bothered keeping it.


And I wouldn't consider any of those bands "new"

New is relative. A great album you've never listened to is new music.

I figured he wanted some new stuff to listen to, not current, out this week music.
