Ha ha ..... I do play the stuff I've spent my life listening to. Classic Rock mostly but on the heavier side.

Re: D Chord GRRR....

As noted above from folks that are actual teachers, hang in there. When I was 17 I wished I had started at 15 too. :lol: I'm 54 now and playing comes fairly easy to me, but it took time and effort. Stick with it and you will continue to have light bulb moments. That's the way guitar is. It pays divi...

Re: Decent copies of Gibson Les Paul

Well Roy, both. :lol: They happened to be on my Studio and I liked them. I believe the 498T is their hottest stock pickup. I like hot. Definitely garden variety Gibson but I like them. Oh, on a different but related note. I'm working with a travel nurse. Tells me her nephew plays guitar. Says he is ...

Re: Decent copies of Gibson Les Paul

My Les Pauls all have 490R and 498T pickups. The SGJ has a 490R and 490T. Not as hot of a bridge pickup but I deal.

Are yours the Burstbuckers Roy?

Re: Decent copies of Gibson Les Paul

I'm sure the electronics on the Gibson are top notch and you won't have issues. I think the boost circuit is more of an on board preamp rather than an active pickup setup.

Re: Making sure to at least noodle each day.

I can't walk by a guitar without picking it up to noodle. I am a habitual noodles. I do tend to have diarrhea of the fingers though.

Re: Decent copies of Gibson Les Paul

I generally do not like modern electronics in my guitars. I do not like active pickups, boost circuits and God forbid USB output. (I'd take your Les Paul with the boost circuit if you gave it to me though Roy). I like passive pickups, like my electronics in my pedals, processors and amps. That's jus...

Re: Decent copies of Gibson Les Paul

Have to check the link when I'm home. It is filtered out here at work. I am partial to my Les Paul Junior Special. Slab mahogony body, mahogony 60's slim taper neck (found I prefer this neck, 2 of my Gibbys have it, 2 have the 50's neck) open face 490R and 498T pickups. Bound fingerboard with dot in...

Re: Decent copies of Gibson Les Paul

Roy! You got a real Gibson Les Paul? Congrats! I have 4 Gibbys, all lower end. 22 year old Les Paul Studio (one of the better years for them I have read) black with ebony board and gold hardware. Les Paul Special, Les Paul Junior Special and an SGJ.

I own one of these. Sound great. 95% as good as my Seymour Duncan Hotrails. They come in white, black and cream. Guitar Fetish has all kinds of budget minded pickups with IMO very good sound.

Re: Newb Dilemma

You can't go wrong with an Epiphone Les Paul. My black Standard Plaintop is one of my favorite guitars. That said, my very favorite at present is a low end Gibson Les Paul. It's a Junior Special. Originally $950 but I got it on sale for $550. My Epiphone was $400. Check out the Gibson LPJ as well. T...

Re: A Peavey Bandit 112 or a Crate FXT30?

Don't some of the newer Bandits have a power level feature to reduce the power output? I think it's like 25% 50% 100%. Depending on whats in the pawn shop, if it had that feature the peavey might be right for your needs.

Re: Setup Questions

Your trem may be the culprit. It won't hurt to frequently adjust stuff but you shouldn't have to. I suspect your trem may not be seated flush against the body. If it goes foreward or backwards (up or down if you will) from where you set it up your action and intonation both change. I don't use mine ...
