  1. I am thinking of purchasing Epiphone Dot Worn Brown. Would there be any way of me being able to remove the sticker that can be seen through the top f hole, It doesn't look nice. And what is the purpose of the sticker ?
  2. Just recently, my black beauty has been having some technical problems. The sound quality and volume isnt consistent, and it seems to vary just just moving the guitar around slightly. Sounds like a connection problem, but I dont think it is the jack. Im extremely annoyed, seeing as I have no experience with internal electronics, and especially soldering. Now would be a good time to mention, occasionally I used my pickup selector as a killswitch. But I hadnt been using it around the time my guitar conked out. Any tips ?
  3. The middle pickup on my epiphone BB is at a weird angle. Its hard to explain, but the angle is lenghways to the guitar. If that makes sense ! Help anyone on adjusting the angle ?
  4. Not that anyone will see this now but... I applied the graphite technique to my LP, and I couldnt believe how well it worked ! I was skeptical at first, thinking it wouldnt work, but it worked beautifully ! Also, I was having trouble with intonation on my high E string, and my tune-o-matic bridge seemed to be not doing its job, but I changed the string and the intonation is fine now. Smiles all round. Thanks everyone. =]
  5. Yeah, ive heard lots about this 'graphite' idea. Can some one explain it, and what it does ?
  6. Yeah, when I tune up I get these little 'ping' noises. Im not sure what that is. =[ And these strings are the ones that came on the guitar, so they would be wound properly. Its so annoying !
  7. The G and B strings on My Epi black beauty keep coming out of tune ! I tune up, play like half a song and they come out of tune. Help anyone ? =[
  8. Nice, I shall go for it. Thank you for all the help. =]
  9. (Thanks for the fretsonthenet link as well, helped alot.)
  10. I am based in the UK, yes. I really like the look of these ones on ebay, so havent contacted fretsonthenet yet, no. Does the pricing seem right for this on on ebay, £11 ? I know you deal in dollars, lol, but am wondering if thats too expensive as truss rod covers ARE damn small.
  11. What does everyone think about this ? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/TRUSS-ROD-COVER-fits-GIBSON-Les-Paul-BRASS-custom-TRC_W0QQitemZ200266844981QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item200266844981&_trkparms=72%3A1301%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14
  12. Yeah, im not gonna be going down the modding road... Is there no gold epi truss rod covers out there ? Thanks for the replies.
  13. The title pretty much says it all, but does anyone know where I can find an epiphone gold truss rod cover with the words 'les paul' on it. I cant find one anywhere, and its for my epiphone black beauty. Thanks. =]
  14. I did get it off ebay, but mine is legit. Sent email to epiphone/gibson, and they told me mine is fine.
  15. I see. Yeah, when I put my hand across the strings, I still get feedback. (This is hard to explain) But when I put my hand on something metallic, like some screws or the actual pickups, the feedback stops. Strange.
