    What bits are that guitar made from? It looks like an unbranded Jazzmaster neck.

    Nice one mate! How do they sound? I always think P90s lose a little something in a full-fat Les Paul. Maybe a heavily weight-relieved LP would be better.

    the g.a.s thread.

    It's an average D to me, but I'm a poor judge. My preference is a hard V, such as the old Washburn A series guitars, so anything else is a disappointment.

    the g.a.s thread.

    I think I posted it in a NGD thread. Someone advertised a new and unplayed one with soft case and spare strings etc on FB Marketplace for £300 about 20 minutes from me. Over a period of 2 weeks I got them down to £200. I'd originally bought this for £5 to cut around the scratchplate, and...

    the g.a.s thread.

    People who hate on Gibson all the time, and make ridiculous statements about how Epiphone, Harley Benton etc are just as good as the Real Thing™ make me sad. It's almost as if they're apologising for having what they see as an "inferior" instrument, and feel as though they have to go on the...

    Aaaaaaaaaaaannnnd yet another NGD! (two in a row)

    And thanks to Johnniegoat, who swapped pickups with me, it now has a Gibson 500T and 496R. NOW it sounds like a Les Paul! I came home from work on Friday, and it was still sustaining from when I played it in the morning* * may be a lie

    Does anyone play Elite Dangerous?

    I bought ED and the Horizons DLC for £7.99 in the Steam sale a month ago and haven't stopped playing it. I was a massive fan of Elite on Spectrum, and took a week off work when Frontier came out on Amiga. Finally took the plunge and kitted my Krait Mk2 for Void Opal mining and made 10...

    Ever single cavity in this Les Paul has been shielded, but they haven't connected them, which is a bit pointless.

    That's with the old pickups in, obviously.

    I've just wired them straight to the hot and the back of the pot. Sound comes out so I guess I did it right. Not sure what the caps are doing, as I haven't touched a tone control in 45 years.
