I don't even own any high-end guitars but I never had them detune themselves that badly overnight just sitting on the stand.

This one does pretty much every night. It doesn't go that much out of tune, but it goes out. This morning it was spot on. This has only happened maybe 3 times in the four years I've owned it. Very strange...

you know i left my strat in its case for idk 2 years and when i took it out it was still in tune :woah:
#7
The weirdest part about this guitar is that when it goes out of tune just sitting, all six strings are sharp. All my other guitars go flat when they go out of tune. None of them go out just sitting on the stand 'cept the two Les Pauls. The Epiphone goes flat, but not as much as the Gibson usually is sharp.

There could be little creatures in my place messin' with me I guess, but they haven't touched the PRS SE or the Yamaha bass.

You need a setup.


I think it just has a funky neck. It seems unusually flexible compared to all other guitars I have owned. I'll probably just build a new neck for it after I get my shop going.

Sure, yeah. Potentially ruin a guitar and re-neck it before trying simple adjustments or getting it setup. That's everybody's first course of action when troubleshooting guitars.

But it's a set neck. With a nitro finish. Redoing that's trivial, right? 5 minutes, bish bash bosh.

I already set it up and it's perfect (other than the G sitting very, very, slightly too low at the nut).

lol I already have an Epiphone, and I would sell a family member before I would sell this guitar. It's the best sounding electric guitar I have ever heard in person. Plus, somebody at Gibson screwed up and put a one piece body on it, and that's pretty rare these days.

So it's definitely a keeper.

Another odd thing about it is that it stays in tune great when I'm actually playing it. I think she just has a crush on me and is trying to get attention.

People who talk about their guitars like they're their girlfriends is cringey af.

My LPC only needs retuning whenever the temperature in the room changes. Gotta restring it properly and file the nut slots to a size that fits the string gauge properly. Writing a pencil into the slots helps a bit too.

Well there you have it. In the winter here the temp fluctuates probably a good 5ºF within any given half-hour, and it's been unusually warm and stable the last few days. I don't remember it staying in tune during the summer though. But then again, over the last four months or so I've been playing 4-5 times as much as I have since I got the guitar.

I dont think I've ever owned a guitar that hasn't gone a little bit flat or a little bit sharp over night. It's never bothered me. I've got a tuner pedal and it takes 10 seconds to correct before I play.

It is a proven fact that plants stay healthier when you talk to them. Guitars are made from wood. Wood comes from trees. Trees are plants.

Ok, so sure, they come from a dead tree, but people talk to dead people all the time, why should the poor trees be forgotten?

Also, billions of people talk to an invisible being that apparently lives in the sky (depending on where you live) all the time. At least I can actually see what I talk to.

That would be devastating. I don't know if I could live without this guitar.

I accidentally stepped on my dog's tail, he always sleeps next to my bed on the floor and usually gets up as soon as he hears me move as he is ready to go out to potty.

I have 15 guitars so I'm sure they were not all perfectly in tune this morning.

Cool story, bro. I'm gonna call my buddy who's an expert on Gibson Les Pauls.

I must alert the media.

Why would you put a new neck on such a nice guitar? All that rarity would be worth squat then.

Well, I don't think a 2012 Classic "Custom" will ever have any "don't change anything" value unless somebody super famous played it. Besides, I get guitars to play, not as an investment. Considering I only play at home, the finish is really beat up for four years-old anyway, 'cause I kinda don't care. Sometimes you just have to manhandle them and rip their parts off to get them to do what they're told. lol

Because he's a living legend, and plus it's proof right there than naming and talking to your guitar makes it play and sound better.

All those great sounding '59 Les Pauls? They have all been named and talked to extensively. lol

All those great sounding les Paul were used guitars that people bought cause they couldn't afford newer ones and by the time the early 90s came along most of them were modded to piss and broken and then people started asking stupid money for original ones because people assumed it would make them Billy Gibbons and Slash.

True. IIRC Billy's '59(and Bernie Marsden's, and most of the other genuine 59's) were picked up second hand.

Also, having seen Gibbons and Slash live(and Gibbons was using strats, furry Deans and Greatch Bo Diddley sigs as well as an LP), I'm pretty sure his tone comes from his amp and his fingers.

Beano? Second hand

pageys? Both second hand and one was Joe Walshs but he hated it and sold it to page

Greeny? Second hand and then sold to Moore. Green hated it.

Kossoff? Second hand


Literally I can't think of a single one of them that were actually purchased new by the owner. Maybe that dude in the Animals or the Hollies or whatever.
