  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I was playing some old Sabbath stuff tonight on the aforementioned '91 SG Special. You guys who know what you are doing might look at '57 Les Paul pickups. That guitar sounds so good. Maybe the new issues are not the same. Of course, I think that the SG has a sound anyway. I am always amazed at...

    I was looking for a good custom from the 80s a few weeks ago, the opportunity presented itself for about 2800 dollars although I can not find the serial number recorded in the records of those years, not if it is because of the record of guitars that brought the coa and from from there the...

    In a weird triangle of trades, I ended up trading the Les Paul that I recently got for a Prestige Ibanez that I had my eyes on before hand. It's a 10th anniversary Prestige RG1421. I'd never seen one of these before and it looked like everything I wanted in an Ibanez that wasn't a 770...

    I got this Les Paul in a trade for my HK amp andt's dead mint with very little buckle rash. It felt weird going over a guitar with a toothbrush and lysol in my bathtub once i got the package. I've wanted a Les Paul-ish guitar for a long time and i couldn't find the right one because most of...
  5. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    SOLD For sale is a 2009 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro in Excellent condition. No headstock bangs or buckle rash. Sounds and plays wonderfully. Frets are in great shape with most of their life ahead of them. It's been played and moved around a bit, but not abused. '60s neck profile. I think...

    There is a kit assembled LP style guitar I've eyed on Reverb for a little while, but it's wired with EMGs. Seller says there is no ground wire laid to the bridge or TOM. If I got it I would ditch the EMGs for something passive but wonder how heard it would be to try and wire the ground without...

    Lick Library posted this earlier with the text, He's got the Malcolm Young signature neck pickup going, and the switch appears to be falling out. Never seen that particular Van Halen guitar, so sort of interesting.

    Zzounds has a deal on the 2018 Limited Edition Les Paul Player Plus... that's a fucking mouthful. The only color that is discounted is Sunrise Orange. But it's $1199 while they last. Two P90's, rounded neck, satin finish, richlite fretboard. That's relatively inexpensive, so I thought I'd...

    I'm personally a life long super strat fan but thought it was about time to finally add a Les Paul to the mix. I've borrowed them, fooled around with them in music stores, etc, but never bought one. After sampling about 10 or so over the weekend, this one in particular just felt like a winner, I...

    This is a 90s Samick Les Paul in cherry sunburst. The guitar has a Dimarzio Air Classic PAF in the bridge and is in great shape. This guitar sounds like a great LP. I got it over a year ago but need to move it to help fund another guitar purchase. I will ship insured in the US. If it didnt sound...

    At first I thought I was EVIL for having this thought...then the logic dawned on me - I don't hang out at "Blues" forums...I hang out here. The BurstBucker Pro pickups sound great....but I'm pretty certain I'm going to go with a Dimarzio Super Distortion in the Bridge, and a Dimarzio Air Classic...

    I'm not even in the market for another few months and this has me gassing. A P90 Junior with a 50's neck profile. :fap:

    https://www.themusiczoo.com/blogs/news/gibson-announces-new-abalone-sparkle-and-moonless-night-les-paul-customs The top one is getting close to being my favorite color. Definitely getting close to that mint green territory I love so much, would be great as a floyded axcess model. Shame...

    So this is a 2017 Les Paul Goldie. I believe its modeled off of 60's specs with the tapered neck. Grabbed it the other day and I'm through the roof. Its without a flaw I can find. It weights about 9lbs and is a shoulder killer, but it sounds so wide and massive. I know that gets thrown around a...

    Part of the club now huh. I'm sure there's a special place in hell for us all. Anyway, not saying what it is, all I can say is it's rare as shit, and MIJ. I'll grab it later in the week. It's also a LPC (black/gold), ebony board etc, the full monty, open book headstock... I'm putting myself...

    I'm not touching the Lemonburst LP with the zebra '57s. That guitar is as perfect as anything I could ask for... it just sings. However, having compared the two, I find that I'd like the Lightburst Les Paul traditional to be a bit livelier, perhaps a bit hotter, and will probably go with...

    Going to try one out this week, and wondering if anyone has any experience playing them, what they're like, and whether they are worth it? It's a 97 the one I am going to try. Basically, I know nothing about les pauls, so be cool to get some info. And yes, it's not an ibby. I must be getting...
