  1. In Topic:Which aftermarket wiring harness for a Casino?

    Got a custom harness from Jersey Shore Guitar Garage. I went with the "Jimmy Page" wiring so I'd have total tonal flexibility.

    Excellent quality (he offers 2 levels - 1 for imports & the top of the line). He offered push/pull or push/push pots and a "soft harness" so it was a guaranteed fit (mine went into a 335/Sherry style kit guitar I built and he had no template or measurements for it).

    Did a first rate job, but his turn-around time was a little over a month, so if you're in a hurry, I'd call before I ordered again.

    And just a heads up, rewiring a Casino/335/Sherry is a royal P.I.T.A.

    There are several youtube videos on the topic with tips to make the job a little easier. If you've never done the work yourself before, I'd DEFINITELY check a few of them out before you start. It'll save you a LOT of frustration.

    Good Luck!

    I wish I would have read this before I order two harness's from Jersey Shore. Their website says 14 days, After I ordered an paid, they told me it would be 20 days, and now it has been 22 days and still nothing. I ordered the 50's style with Sprauge Vitamin Q caps. I am really hoping it is worth the wait.

    you need to post this here https://www.facebook...nlespaulowners/ there are like 30 or 40 thousand members in this group all over the world. Surely someone here may have seen them. Especially the LP JR, that is very unique with the broken head stock, and when i looked at the photo, I said " I have seen this guitar someplace". I just am not sure where, but i remember commenting that I would not fix the head-stock if it was still tunable.

    Hi all , i recentely purchased this; Gibson USA 2016 Limited '50s Les Paul Standard (Faded Honeyburst) and it seems to be a limited release and sold in a few shops. Stil i cant seem to find much info on this one and its a so called proprierty guitar and nothing about it on the gibson site . why could it be that its not listed there? Its is a gibson not a fake!!! who knows anything about this nice guitar? thanx all , greetz eric ekkerman gibson-usa-2016-50s-les-paul-standard-ltd-faded-honeyburst-nickel-355326.jpg

    If it is a limited run or an exclusive, they would not put them on the Gibson site because they are usually made for a specific dealer, like Zzounds or Guitar Center.

    WOW that blows. It sickens me to read something like this. I hope you get them back my friend, and get a chance to kick the **** out of the person who took them.

    First of all thank you for all the helpful replies. Having the ability to bounce ideas off of other guitarists helps me a lot so, really, thanks. I think I should add a little more. Right now I have a Strat, a tele, and a PRS Custom 22 and 8 or 9 acoustic guitars. I usually hang out in the acoustic forum. I am mainly a singer and rhythm guitarist but can play some lead but it isn't really my thing. It is basically blues and classic rock at my house. The guitars I buy usually act as different colors on an artist's pallet. The plan was to have a guitars suitable for any song when I friends come over to jam. If we do a Clapton number I have a strat If we do some Albert Collins there's a Tele, and if we do some Gary Moore or Zepplin there should be a LP. The LP was going to be the last electric I was going to buy although a semi-hollowbody... You know. What I find frustrating is that the LP produces some of my favorite recorded guitar work but when I pick them up I cannot connect those classic tones to my brain and fingers. I feel dyslexic when I play a LP and since they all seem to sound different I still can't decide which flavor sounds "good". I have played every LP at Guitar Center and my local music shops. I have played the range from Studio to R8 and the differences are too subtle. The R8 felt more solid and the pickups were clearer but the heavens didn't open up. When I hear a LP played in a concert it hits me square in the gut but when I play one it plays, feels, and sounds meh! It isn't technique or practicing. I want a LP badly. I want to learn first hand what it is about them that people love so much. I want to understand that before I die and all I've run into is a brick wall. I want to learn and I can't open the door. It is very frustrating and I've never, ever experienced this before.

    Are you playing them through a TUBE amp when you are trying them? and are you playing with the tone and Volume nobs to see the many different sounds you can get? I play both Les Pauls and SG's. if you are use to strats, you may want to try a few SG's. I am partial to a standard myself, but the new ones, you need to rewire because they have PCB instead of normal Pots, caps and wires.
