  1. And would I need to change my pots to another value with a P04?
  2. Is the Gibson P94 better than than the GFS dream 90 ?
  3. Perfect! And what brand would you recommend me? In a budget of about 100€ (130$, 83£). I was thinking about the Gibson, but is there better in that price range?
  4. Oh I see thank you very much. The reson I don't use my neck pickup a lot is because I think it's not very clear. It's very "bassy" if you know what I mean ? I find it hard to use it on my everyday playing. (It's a 57 clasic). I think I will go with your advice and put a P94 in the neck! :) I hope it will be much more interesting to play!
  5. I mainly use my bridge pickup, for rock songs, chords, solos and such. The neck not so much, only for songs that recquire a certain sythisizer tone. Why is P94 in the neck so common ? Would it sound really bad the other way around ?
  6. Thank you very much! I sent him a PM to not hijack his very nice thread.
  7. Hello all ! I have a Epi LP Custom with Gibson 57Classic in the neck, and a 57Classic+ in the bridge. I like it very much and have played for 2 years, but a lot of guitarists that I admire play on P94's. I really love the tone. I was thinking of putting one in my Custom ? Is that a good combination ? What do you guys think ? Where should I put it? in the neck or the bridge ? What that combination add more versatility to my guitar ? My amp is Fender Blues Jr. Thanks! Guitarist of my favorite band "The Strokes" uses a Epi Riviera with P94. Here is the tone:
  8. Hi,Good Day;

    My name is Miss.Mary Dickson, I saw your profile to day at (forum.gibson.com) and was moved and become interested in you, I will like you to send me an email to my address (marydickson100@yahoo.in) so that i can give you my pictures for you to know whom i am.

    I believed we can move from here? Remember colour or distance does not matter but LOVE matters allot in life...

  9. AnimalFarm it is you who helped me installing the Gibson 57 classics on my les paul a while back, remember ? So I did some work myself on my guitar! But this pot problem is something totally new and my tech is awesome he shows me what he is doing and explains it to me. So I will stick with him I think. It's my only guitar. And I'm getting better and better (1 year of playing) and I can't afford not being able to play for too long!
  10. Oh right I see! So unfortunately I don't have the money to upgrade all the electronics (pots swtich etc). But changing only the faulty pot is possible right ?
  11. Okay I see! I am not too familiar with repairing electronics so I will give my guitar to a tech! If the knob has to be replaced should I buy one and give it to the tech ? Or does he normally have everything he needs ?
  12. Hey y'all. The other day I noticed my neck pickup lost 95% of volume. -> I had the same problem last year and my guitar tech fiddled with the knobs and turned them so hard that the entire pot would turn. That's how he fixed the problem. He said something interfered with the pot ? It was a year ago and I can''t remember enough to do it again myself. Do you have any ideas ? (I cant see my tech hes not where I live). Thanks!!!
  13. Hey OP! I had a 212R for 1 year and just recently upgraded to a Fender Blues Jr, so I know what I'm talking about, and boy did I HATE de 212R!! From day 1, where I knew nothing about guitar and tone, I knew there was something off with that amp. I am a bit too lazy to elaborate in a big paragraph so I will just make a list : - The clean channel is good only until volume 2. As you go louder, it gets even more weird on the ears. - The tone has no "personality" at all. It's just... dull. You can play the most beautiful chords out there, it just sounds... you know. just... boring! - The od/distortion channl OH MY *** GOD man, I don't know what kind of music you play, but I doubt there is a music genre that would fit this TERRIBLE channel. Its like trash death metal on DRIVE 1!!!! Now it's not all that bad : the EQ on this amp (treble mid bass) is VERY responsive. So that is very handy because you can easily shape your sound (although you're not going to get very far with the amp). The reverb is quite good. And overall, it's a VERY loud amp. But as I said, the louder you get, the more the sound is awful. Yes, I really hate this amp. Because for over a year and half I have tried to play cool rock band covers on it and never succeded beccause the tone was AWFUL and the distortion TERRIBLE. But hey, it seems it's one of the best SS amps out there so you don't have much choice. If you have the money, go for the Blues JR man!!
