  1. In Topic:Do Your Strings line up with your Pole Piece Screws?

    18 September 2017 - 10:35 AM

    To me it does matter, at least it did on my Epiphone 335 Pro.

    The strings did not align, so no big deal, then the saddles started to fall apart, Stew mac has nickel plated brass saddles that fit Epis, for $6 a nice upgrade. Before I replaced them I noticed the Epi saddles have that cast notch in v shape, well the string spacing on the bridge is actually narrower on the bridge than it is on the tail piece.

    When I notched the new saddles the string spacing is a bit wider and I like how the guitar plays better now and well, as a result the pole pieces line up.

    Added a tone knob to my Epiphone Valve Jr head, the knob works really well, I am pleased with the result except I am detecting a hiss that I am not sure was there before. The hiss reacts to the tone knob meaning it gets darker or brighter so I guess it is coming from somewhere else. I can live with it for now.

    Tone knob on the left, I had previously added a full size volume pot years ago.

    I decided to add a tone knob because now that I am using an attenuator some treble is lost and while it can be added back by the attentuator it can sound shrill under some settings. The tone knob sound more natural.

    Just kidding, it's a line from movies and sitcoms from the 80s, it's not that funny but I say it when I see pics of people for the first time.

    I am 5'7", just about everybody is taller than me.

    Again, I think Gibson knows that a lot of us are thinking the same way, that this guitar is close enough to an R6.

    Will they do the same thing with other Les Pauls? we'll see.

    A few weeks ago a used R6 came up for sale locally, mint for $2000.

    Congratulations, that's a cool guitar.

    Mine is a 2008 just about the year they stopped making them on this color for a while.

    Mine has the superflat neck profile. 50s/60s blend the specs said.

    I'll be interested to read the specs on this model.

    Hi! I saw the Fender Champ head that you've built and I think it's an amazing job you did!!! I'd like to do the same for a Victoria 518-T (copy of a Fender Champ 57) Could you provide any help? Or even, would you want to build another that I would buy from you?

    Great. Unknwon is a great act and guitarist, not a lot of people get into him on this forum though. I plan to see him every time he is in town. I have seen him 3 times now.
