  1. In Topic:New pickup covers for 57 classics - neck/bridge or neck/neck?

    I don't have a 339, but do have a 336 which is very similar. The pickup covers are the same size, but I would recommend that you get one of each in case there are differences in how they are attached under the pickup rings (stuff you can't see until you take it apart).

    In the photos they look to be identical, but since they are the same price and you need two of them anyway, I would get one of each.

    Hopefully it won't be like the Blues Brothers in the Honkey-Tonk bar [scared]

    Having played in and around Chicago for many years we sometimes got booked into ethnic places where we thought we might not fit, both Black and Hispanic but my experience was that if you performed well, regardless of the genre the audience appreciates it. So I say stick with what you do best and let it rock. [thumbup]
  3. In Topic:2006 Les Paul Classic Goldtop Checking?

    This is very sad and quite disconcerting. I have seen checking and crackle on some very old guitars, and what you have does not resemble that at all. Apparently it is not uncommon as per the number of responders that have experienced the same thing, and obviously it is one reason Gibson doesn't warrant the finish.

    You would think with all the modern technology and science that goes into making an expensive instrument this could be avoided - hopefully improvements will be made at some point in the future. As mentioned, a crack or fissure in the finish should not diminish how the guitar sounds or plays but it still doesn't seem right.

    I have 4 Gibson guitars the oldest being a 2002 and none of them are showing anything like this yet, but I will be very disappointed if they do.

    I can't say for sure that it helped the tone

    Well if there is no significant change in how it sounds I think I'll just leave mine like they are. Thanks for the reply.

    Ohh look.. They decided to go with those modern DC guitars.. Those Firebird, V and Explorers look frikken great

    There are other colours

    These are pretty cool, but only 1 volume and 1 tone control, and not sure I could reach the toggle switch it's so low [confused]
