    Very nice fret end dressing. Although, I prefer a more rounded fret end. Glad you were able to get it fixed up and set up.

    Yeah, I hear you about the pickup ring. If you're ambitious, take the pickup out of the ring and mod the plastic ring. Masking tape a piece of 600 grit sandpaper on the pickup cavity. And just sand the bottom of the ring on sanding it back/forth in direction of the strings until you get the right curvature. It also helps if you use a flat piece of wood on top of the ring to keep it level.

    ...or just buy a curved pickup ring...easier.

    I like that gold 2015 case... been looking for one on CL.

    You're probably going to be busy playing the heck out of it so ...enjoy it!

  4. In Topic:2015 Gibson ES-335 - Speedbump frets when sliding

    11 October 2017 - 02:27 AM

    My son only plays Fenders and he always comments on rough speedbumps on Gibsons. Thicker med jumbo frets are less bumpy than skinny frets. Gibson also has a bus top contoured fret crowing vs. Fender's rounded crowing top. You can crown the Gibson frets more to make them rounder or feeling less of a sharp edge.

    I'm just use to both types, and don't notice the "speed bump" plek'd Gibson frets.

    I have one and I am never selling it. Why sell such a killer axe?

    FZ Fan, what does the model "ARLC" a mnemonic for? On mine, it's written in pencil in the bridge cavity.

    Yes, it is. Thanks! I got it in 1967 and still have it in good shape. Dents on frets and divots on the fretboard.
