    Amps

    HI there my friend and welcome. Whjat makes this question HARD to answer is not knowing what tone you prefer. But I'll go with NORMAL answer for ya. It is al old sayying that GIBSON guitars and FENDER AMPs arelike soup and sadnwhich. But first I must ask you do you want GRIT or do you want that traditrional sound of warmth , beatifull clean notes that ring like a church belll or that ROCK N ROLL CRUNCH. FOr what yo uare doing to give you the BEST tone yo need an amo from 15-under 20 watts.. I would suggest TWO amps 1...The PRINCVETON REVERB Re-issue though it says 899.99 it can be b

  10. HELLO MY FRIEND, I am sending ou a message. Good t hear from you.

  11. Ya might wanna take em out and check em...I have a set in a 70's 335 and they put out 12.6 and 13.1 repectively and a 2008 RD which have basically the same output. You may be experiencing a BAD pot or capacitor in your ax , as Dirty Finger are the HIGEST OUTPUT pup Gibson offers You can check this if you have a LOW OHM reading mutli -testor if not any Radio Shack seel these for under 20.00 and you can test them youself before spending any money on new pups. Yyou need only cross from the two connection on the pup while it is NOT plugged in to get the ohm;s ( resistance) if is is less th
  12. HEY Guys,' I have purchased BOTh these models for a couple of my students at my discount to save them a few bucks. Before jumping on these pleaseremembber these are GC ONLY guitar meaning they got to spec everything. Someof the bodieson bioth were 2-3 pieces glues together cutting down on sustain and resonation and promoting potential heaving neck sweiing for drying to FAST . That is what made the older 50's,. 60. 70, GIBSON SO GOOD was the slow drying technique which took up tpo 3-5 years for some woods. For a guy who wants to try out a P-90 equipped guitar the Tribute is pretty good
  13. I have purshcased both the 50's and 60's model and one of the NEW JR's for friends whom I give lessons due to the discounts I get. You should certainly test ride a couple of thme before you choose ,the wieght difference between TWO models can be huge thus affecting the tone of the guitar. Some have bodies of put ogether 3-4 piece bodies. This new way of drying n gluesing is not only terrible for reonation to vibrate theought the one pieve base body, but end up in crack similar to those that appear on an acoustic guitar not properly caerd for. Though a they come with ORANGE DROPS ca
  14. YES I HAVE ONE AND THE FRETLESS WONDER 55 LP CUSTOM IS NOT FOR ROCK OR BLUUES IT WAS LES'S DESIGN FOR THE JAZZ PLAYER HENCE THE LOW FRETS. ASLES AND MARY FORD WERE THE NUNBER 1 JAZZ DUET AT THAT TIME. IT;S A VERY CLEAN SOUND,,,NO BENDING ON THIS BABY BUT TALK ABOUT CLEAN QUALITY TONE IT HAS IT....BUT IT IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. I RECENTLY BOUGHT A SINGLE P-90 CARVED TOP 55 LP CUSTOM FROM THE CUSTOM SHOP BUT THERE IS ONLY THERE BRIDGE PUP KIND OF LIKE A JR BUT WITH A CARVED TOP/ THERE WERE ONLY 30 MADE BEING GIBSON BACKED I WAS LUCKY TO GET ONE. HOPE THAT HELPS...St James
  15. THE FIREBIRD X IS GARBAGE AND EVRYTHING THAT GIBSDON DOES NOT STAND FOR. What is it witht he neww products division???? From 2009 FLOPS like the NEW CENTURY,MENNACE, VEGAS,THOSE CHIC GUITARS, and putting signautre guitar out for guys who barely have made a name for themselves. FIRE those boys n bring in some new blood. I GOT AN IDEA FORGET ALL THIS ROBOT CRAP and PUT OUT A NICE UN-CHAMBERED STANDARD FOR 1500.00 LIKE YA USED TO DO and BRING BACK THE CLASSIC FOR 1200.00 THERE ARE MORE MODELS OF LES PAULS THAN ONE CAN FIGURE OUT. CUT THE CRAP AND GET BACK TO WHAT WORKS THIS FIR
