    marshallheads v. Dr. vintage (output volume)

    Hi guys, I'm having a 335 spec'd out, and am torn between these two pickups. Just how 'hot' are the Mhs? I want some headroom with my amp. For example, my p90 guitar overdrives the input very early, something around the 9 o'clock area. I don't want that in this guitar. I want some nice...

    R4 - what is the deal?

    I have a quick question that I'm sure someone here knows the answer too. What is the deal with the r4? Is it still produced? It is not on gibson's website, but i do see it on musiciansfriend.com. It also comes in a cool sunburst color on MF. I hope that isn't a MF exclusive.... thanks corey

    Intonation woes

    Well, after adjusting my action (raising it quiet a bit) on my new 336, i've come up with a problem. The bridge saddlse are as far back as they can go, and the intonation is still off(way off on the bass e string). Is there anything i can do to help this? thanks corey

    Buy Before You Try

    I want this thread to be based on fact, not opinion...so please refrain. (1) Have you bought a gibson without trying it first, and ended up with a sub-par guitar (something physically wrong with it)? And if so how many times have you been 'burned' like so. (2)What model guitar was it? (3)What...

    WCR model differences

    Hello, While looking at the WCR website, i can't help but want a more in depth description of his pickups. Between the crossroads, darkburst, and g--dw--ds they all seem like PAF, with the darkburst and g--dw--ds overwound. What is the tonal differences between these models? Also you guys that...

    336 v 335

    hello! I was wondering if you guys could shed some light on the tonal differences of the historic 335 and 336. None of the local shops around here seem to carry the 336, and the clips on gibson's page are so vastly different, both in style and gain/amp settings, that they become useless. If...
