  1. Hi, So anyone have an idea about how this (double-action, 2-way) Truss-Rod actually works ? Thanks
  2. Thanks everyone for your replies so far. After changing to the lighter strings: The TR was originally just under tension, and there was virtually no relief. So the neck appeared straight. And I only backed it off ACW about 1/8 turn then it went loose. Continuing ACW while pressing in the TR, started to tighten the TR and gave some relief. So I've only moved it about 1/8 to 1/4 turn ACW, so it should adjust further without too much resistance. But I'm puzzled as to what type of construction this dual TR actually is, would it be like the bi-flex on the fender ?
  3. Hi I'd be really grateful for some practical advice please. I've got the Epiphone Les Paul Ultra-II Electric Guitar. (who's spec says that the 'Truss Rod' is a: double-action, 2-way) BTW: This is the LP Epi with the addition of an acoustic pick-up discreetly positioned at the end of the fretboard, and apparently it's body is hollowed out slightly, to add an acoustic chamber. FIRST: I must say, that it would be really helpful and responsible of Gibson, if they would make this kind of information readily available, easy to understand, and easy to find. Then perhaps Gibson's v
  4. Thanks Peter, that' greatly appreciated. I've now got the socket to work. everything now seems to work, except... Now the bridge pick-up is very, very distorted... any ideas anyone ? Thanks
  5. Thanks, Eracer_Team & BigKahune. BigKahun: Do you have any links for the demo videos ? because for some reason I keep ending up back at the Gibson website. Thanks.
  6. Hi Sheila Many thanks for your reply and welcome. I bought and collected it new, from a genuine Gibson/Epi dealer. Thanks, but I'd rather not have to trek 30 mile back to the dealer, if this is something simple that I can easily fix. Thanks.
  7. Hi I've just took delivery of an: epiphone les paul ultra 2, electric guitar faded cherry sunburst This is my first Epiphone, and so far I'm not impressed ! It didn't come with an owners manual or cable... So I'm not sure how to use the controls or the 2 sockets ? I've tried to insert my normal lead (ie: which has a standard mono 1/4" jack plug that fits my fender) into these 2 sockets, however... It won't go into the [Mono-Socket] more than half way, (ie it won't latch). And... It will go into the [stereo-Socket] but it's very tight, and only one control seems to do
