    The Weight of Paint

    I've noticed on the Black Burst's that Wildwood has the weight of the guitars as Sunburst's are noticeably lighter than after the Black finish is applied. One weighs 9.O as a Sunburst and 9.24 with the Black Finish. I never really considered the paint adding to the weight that significantly. I...

    My Apologies to ThroBak

    Wow! Some of you may recall the thread I started a few months ago entitled Help W/ Neck Pickup Clarity, or something to that effect. To recap, I thought my neck pickup wasn't as clear as it could be. Many of you offered some very helpful suggestions of which I tried and had positive results...

    CC#15 Control Cavity Mystery

    Last week I took a look inside the control cavity of my CC#15 for the first time. At first I was baffled to see a serial number stamped in there and not just a R8 as I've come to expect. I was also surprised by it looking smeared. I wondered about the serial number, which I later found out was...

    Help W/ Neck Pickup Clarity

    Ok, I've tried all of the suggestions I've read in various places on this forum to achieve better clarity out of the neck pickup on my 07 R9, and still basically have what I'd consider 'muddy/bassy' tone. I'm at my wits end and seeking further advise. The pup in question is a Throbak SLE 101...

    Thanks to the incoming snow storm we're expected to get tomorrow, UPS graciously upgraded the shipping on my CC#15, and got it from CO to my door in VA in less than 24 hours! That's a good start.... So yes, I'm on honeymoon with this guitar but seriously, it's the best feeling/playing/sounding...

    CC#15 Owners: Talk To Me

    OK, I'm seriously interested in the CC#15 model. However, in order to purchase one I'm gonna have to sell my 2007 R9 and R4. So I have a few questions for those who own one of these. First and foremost, how does it play and sound? Second, what are the frets like? The standard Historic...

    Manlius P90's

    I'm currently shopping for some different P90's to put in my R4. I've got Lollar 50's Wind's in there now. Lately I've been changing my direction in tone and instead of pretty clean stuff, I'm going for more girth, growl, and grit. I've heard some decent sounding demos of Manlius P90's on...

    Throbak's Incoming/Need Pot/Cap Suggestions

    Got my shipping notice this afternoon for the Throbak's I've wanted ever since BluesforStevie's Youtube clips hit the net. Now, I'm looking for some good pots/caps to really do it up right. My R9 at this point is completely stock. I'm a little concerned about change, as my experiment with...

    Swart Space Tone/SG Special

    Best Dealer For Cloud 9's

    Well, funds are starting to come in and I'll probably be ready to purchase a Cloud 9 Les Paul by late next week. Since no dealer near me has any, I'm gonna have to do this transaction over the internet. Not my perference, so I'd really like to deal with the best. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    Chambered R8's Talk To Me

    OK, I'm in the market for a R8. Been searching around for a few months and found a new one locally that I like a lot, but it's really plain looking and a tad on the heavy side. Mind you the LP I've been playing for the last few years is 11 LB's. The R8 I'm looking at is in the 9ish range and...

    In short, would you trade in a awesome feeling and playing '74 LP Standard toward a new VOS '58 LP?

    86 Custom Advice

    Ok, after 20+ years of playing guitar, I've only in the last 2 years taken a shine to the glorious Les Paul. In that two years I've owned a Classic(very briefly) and currently own a '74 Standard. However, I'm not real sure about all the model differences and changes that's gone on with the LP...

    '74 Standard Pickups

    According to Gibson, they didn't officially make a Les Paul Standard in the early 70's, but that's what I have. It's not a re-routed Deluxe. I was told that Gibson did make special order Standards at that time. My question is what pickups were they using in these Standards? I'm assuming T...

    70's Standard Question

    Ok as the new owner of what I'm told is a '74 Les Paul Standard, I've been doing a little research to know more about the guitar that has now become my new #1. From what I was told at the time of purchase and by checking out the serial number, it's a '74. My question is concerning what I read...
