  1. @ El_Jeffe_Solid...Yeah!! That should do it! I almost did at the end of my first gig with it. I start strumming the outro of our last song and it's ringing all out of tune!! I was like @!%%^$!!
  2. Gibson offered to take a look at it. I am contemplating whether or not to send it back to them to fix.
  3. They are the symptoms exactly. Very frustrating. I can hear pings and chinks from the g and b strings when i tune as well. i thought a good setup would handle this but it doesn't appear the nut was worked on at all.
  4. Hi, I am a singer/songwriter and play the rhythm guitar in my band. I've been playing guitar about 11 years and played mostly acoustic the first 7-8 years. I play open and barred chords in our arrangements predominantly. No lead or bending at all. I own a mexican Fender Telecaster that I've practiced with, recorded with and played live with effectively for the past two years. I recently upgraded to a les paul studio and right out of the case it is apparent that I can not play this instrument and keep it in tune. The first was so bad that I thought it was defective so after two practices I returned it and had another sent out to me. The second one behaved much like the first... A battle to even get the G and B strings to tune open. Then halfway through a single song the chords are ringing way out of tune. A chords are a nightmare, Am, D also are an issue. Barred or chords up the fretboard arent as bad but as I said I play almost open chords exclusively. I then took this second guitar to be setup by a pro, thinking I was all set and went to record with it last night. By the second take the engineers and my guitar player had had enough. Just put that thing down! So what is the problem? Is it me? Am I too heavy handed to play this instrument? Is it the instrument? Could two Gibson Les Paul Studios be bad? Anyone with any insight or experience with this type of issue who can lend some advice would be greatly appreciated. I want to keep this guitar but right now it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to.
