• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Anybody know if these ABR1s would fit on an instrument that was built with TonePros hardware like a Collings CL? Thanks.

Try if a "stock" Gibson ABR fits... if it does, the Four Uncles ABR-1 will fit.

Changed the thumbwheels to brass - what a difference! Couldn’t put my guitar down!!!
Changes I have done so far to my 2018 M2M 59': Faber ABR, Crazy part vintage correct brass thin thumbweel and wheel posts, CTS BVT burst taper 10% 550K, MOD capacitor 0.22uF and Throbak KZ-115 MXV A4. Every change was done one at a time. Then I played the guitar at least a week before I did the next change. Every change made my Les Paul better. It was a great guitar from the beginning, but now it is fantastic unplugged and plugged in. I can only recommend these changes to everyone. Every change I did, I was amazed how much difference and how much better my Les Paul sounded👍😊

Gaston, what tailpiece did you go with?

Also, the guitar didn't "bloom" like that before you replaced those parts?

The tailpiece is an old 1958 Gibson tailpiece from a 58 Les Paul Special; a friend of mine installed a Badass bridge on his old Les Paul and gave me the original tailpiece (many years ago...).
The "bloom" became alive when I installed the Four Uncles bridge. Quite a bridge I'll tell ya !

The last time I heard that "bloom" I was playing a '59 burst. Imagine when I heard the same kind of bloom and chimes with the Four Uncles bridge. It is that good !
