AXE, do you mind explaining the git in you sig? I know you probably have already told the story but I couldn't find it in a search. Modified explorer? Gibson Custom shop? It's sweet no matter the case. It'll be a nice bedtime story this eve. Thanks

I had heard about "said" guitar but had never seen one . While playing a l'il gig at Pop' splace just east of St Louis I swung by a shop "the guitar exchange" St Charles Mo. And picked up a Firebird V . And enquired about a higher end Explorer .
The owner graciously brought me to his *private stock room and showed me the guitar . Drool *
After several counter offers she came home with me and has never left .
I bring her out for special occasions ... and Sundays.
Needless to say I got it for a song compared to it's actual worth ...

Nice... Let me know how that works out

You know... when i read the threads title (i read it realy fast) i thought AXE was getting a signature from gibson: Gibson THE AXE, which is, by all means, a way better idea than the menace...


So AXE if that were to happen, what features would you want included in your signature axe (Epi version, gibson version) and what finishes would you want?

I've thought about this off and on for a bit .
1. Les Paul Shape .With a sculpted neck to body for easier access to the upper register .
2. Mahogany body. 3/16th of an inch thinner with Maple Flame or Korina top . Mahogany neck w/ rosewood fingerboard.
3. 57 style Humbuckers , 2 volume 2 tone , with a fade option like a balance , so both pu'ps could be left on full volume and fade between the two without touching the knobs , [placement TBT].
4. Color options minimal , Lightburst . Natural . or Heritage Cherry .
5.ABR-1 Bridge with T6 or comparable stop bar .
I'll think of more later .

Discuss ;

explain that?
i had our local tech wire my les pauls so when both Pups are on, either volume can be set to zero and you just blend the Pups how you want
(normally when either volume is zero, the guitar is totally quiet)

i think my way is easier, but a fader would be cool

If Danelectro can do it on a $200 guitar, it should be simple enough on a LP.

I always wanted the fading ability on a LP, just never pursued it.
My Rickenbacker 381 V69 has a similar setup, very cool.
Can you say Ric-O-Sound?

idk how he did it, but the inspiration was from the danelctro lol
its wonderful, when i have the volume down to take away some of the crunch, but dont have the treble i want, i just add a little more bridge Pup

or vise-versa with bass

its REALLY useful for finding that sweet spot with clean tone
