so has anyone seen my pink floyd les paul custom ? click that if you havent.... now imagine a gibson rather than a lame epiphone, not that thers anything wrong with epiphone. now. i havent been on this website in ages cause its filled with 16 year olds with squires or ibanez's or other cheap lame metal guitars. im sick of lame customizations like that. i know. i customized an epi im a hypocrite. but now im going to customize i gibson. just like my epi. i just ordered a gibson les paul custom last week, it should be arriving this week. when i get it ill take pictures and post them and then ill be on my way.
#2
whats this thread about again? youre telling us you ordered a gibson les paul?
well, tell us what you plan to customize to it.
i like your pink floyd guitar btw.

hes sayin he means to customize it the same way he did the floyd one. i think that would kinda defeat the purpose of customization, and take away alot of its appeal for me (i just think customization should be a one-off thing). but really, do what you want.
did you ever finish the doublesg mod? with the stairway theme.
#4
im not doing it EXACTLY like my epi, i sold my epi, ive customised it to exactly how i wanted it and im changing hte only thing i cant customise. the guitar itself. so i still want the same setup i had on the epi. wow peple need to start reading "what exactly are you doing?" ****in read it dude. anyways. its not defeating the purpose thats just how i like my guitar. pete townshed has 9 guitars all customized the same.. if i still had my epiphone id do somehtign different. anyways. guitar will be here really soon, i hope.
#5
oh, and i havent done anything on the doubleneck. i went through a stage of depression after i sold my lp and i just didnt really play much guitar. and ill my money went towards this high priced gibson
#6
well- you didnt really make yourself clear in the first post

and ive seen your epi thread but i wasnt gonna read the whole dam thing

so you bought a gibson- and your customizing it....


what exactly- maybe a list?

i cant believe you want me to paint that thing...im gonna crap myself on the first stroke of sandpaper... but man that would look wicked...again. i think this time i wanna add some pearl to the colours in the rainbow and a bit to the prism itself to make it a little more vibrant. lemme know what you think

People seem a little negative about this... I'm looking forward to see what you'll be doing and how! Can you make some kind of guide to how you do it, while you do it? That'd be awesome!

for those who dont know what a gibson les paul custom looks like:




and yes, it is a gibson


so right now, at this very moment, i am doing a pickup and wire swap. and just an electronics overhaul
#21
haha you should see the belt buckle scratches on it already from his nintendo controller belt
#22
wow looks great i didn't think that gibson still made the customs i couldn't find it on the website. you did a great job on the epi too

i wouldnt paint it,just because i love the look of the black beauty lespauls and dont want you to fu<k up a 3000 dollar guitar

#25
i work at the guitarworks on 16th ave. you couldnt find it because gibson doesent make it. gibson custom makes it. go to gibsoncustom.com then you will find it. for some reason everybody thought the ls supreme was replacing it. but its not. as for the paint. i dont see how painting it will **** it up? i mean, people paint $150000 hotrods. why would painting a $3000 guitar be any different? and its my guitar not yours! pics coming soon for what ive done. oh and ive completly ****ed up the electronics. but its ok cause i was getting new stuff anyways.
#26
ok so, this is what its at right now. but take note, the elsectronics dont work:




if your wondering why it doesent work.... this is why:


and to put the bigsby on, you pretty much have to take the stopbar off, line it up and drill it on, but the one thing you need is the ground top be attached to the bigsby, so i used a paperclip:


and here is a random pic:


cool eh?
#27
nice bigsby! i noticed you changed the bridge pup, why don't you install the gold cover on it?

cause i dont want to, somehow i knew the first comment would be that.
#29
he changed both...but the sound is cleaner on the neck pup because of the cover where as the bridge is louder and more sensitive w/o a cover... mark tremonti of alterbridge does the same with his signature PRS

Nooo leave it without a pickguard, I much prefer LP's without pickguards. But seeing as it's not my guitar if Pacman-man wants to add a pickguard and paint it it's his choice. But I'll agree that it was a pretty spanking paintjob on the pickguard (and the whole guitar for that matter, made me drool)
