    Joe B confirms Beano is with a collector.

    Sorry if this is a repost. I didn't see it mentioned yet. I came across this article that claims Joe B knows that beano is ok and with a collector. Anyone else seen this or know the validity? Its something I've always assumed was the case...

    I recently bought another set of custombuckers. These were listed as mint and I jumped on them. When they arrived today, it looks like someone adjusted the poles on the neck pup. The first three are very low and the last three are very high. Did someone do this or did it possibly come that way...

    The first year for Custom Buckers

    1960 Gibson ES 175 - Does this appear legit?

    Can someone check this out and tell me if this looks legit? The price seems a bit in the low side. Also, the tail piece seems incorrect. I have been emailing the guy and he claims its original, including the pickups. Any help would be appreciated...

    Pickup went dead on me

    So I was having issues where my bridge pickup was going in and out on me. It basically would lose power after about 5 minutes of playing and sound like someone rolled the volume down to 3. I figured it was the three way selector, so I replaced that. It wasn't that so I replaced both pots. That...

    So here goes. I am currently looking to wire a 57 Classic in the neck and 57 classic plus in the bridge. I have 4 push/pull pots in my Les Paul from previously having the Jimmy Page wiring. I am over that and ready to move on. The 57 classic plus is two conductor, so I realize the Jimmy Page...
