    Gibson is going over to PRS territory.

    But there are some nice new Custom Shop models. I love this:

    Nice job on the re-wire, Bence!

    How does it compare, tone-wise, with your Classic Custom?
    Does it have a similar sound / character both unplugged and plugged?


    Thank You, Pippy.

    The ES-LP sounds like a solid Les Paul on reverb, unplugged.

    Through the amp, it's tone is grainier than the solid's. It is very sensitive to picking attack: You can adjust the volume just by picking. It is also more versatile: playing with controls, You can change it's character significantly. I like to make it sound like a Strat (both pickups split/out-of-phase). Also, it rings longer than the solids (that's for the theory that heavy, dense bodies are the key to sustain :)).

    Best wishes... Bence

    With regards to putting a harness in an es. If you push a rubber tube through each pot hole and out through the pickup holes you can then push the pot shafts into the ends of the tubes and pull them through. String can be used in the same way but using a tube will mean the pot shaft is easily pulled up through the hole.

    Hello Farnsbarns.

    Yes, that is a good method. But the hardest part of the rewiring is when You try the get the prewired assembly into the body. Guiding the pot shaft into the holes seems very easy after that.

    That is a beauty - even has bound F-Holes (or painted at least they aren't raw or matte black like a lot of more expensive Gibson's).

    Kudo's on the re-wiring job. I'll never understand how that can be done on an ES semi-hollow where there is no access from the back. Guess I would have to see someone do it to begin to understand. I know you can use a little mirror on a stick to see some of it, but feeding the entire harness through F-holes is beyond me. Great job, and hopefully it sounds as good as it looks. [thumbup]


    Through the f-hole it would be impossible, at least through these narrow ones. I removed the bridge pickup and stuffed the harness through the cavity. If You are lucky, the solders will stop breaking after the 5-6th attempt. Then, I massaged the pot shafts into the holes with my fingers in the f-hole. :D

    Cheers... Bence
