  1. @Sgt. Pepper Think you mean age 13, don't Remember him opening up for BB after age 13.
  2. But at least Bonamassa tours with some of them, and actually knows what to do with them, unlike football team owners Chalk it up to a 9yr old thread though
  3. Have you tried lowering the pickup height? Backing it away should change tone and unfortunately or fortunately will lower the output a bit
  4. The fret board looks dry He's probably feeling the fret edges, Probably needs to hydrate the fretboard
  5. In One Word.. NO.. it's not the break angle over the TOM and Bridge and no need to go to roller nut or roller bridge. (oh BTW, your strings CAN touch the back of the bridge and still be a great sounding guitar) the design is more than 60yrs old and there are literally thousands (millions ) of guitars that stay in tune. thanks for bringing up a post from 8 years ago,, (2012).. I'm sure RJames1973 hasn't gotten his guitar fixed by now and will be resolved with your reply.

    Looks like a Les Paul jr Double Cut. Just checked a 2019 on sale at a big Guitar store in Canada lists at 800cdn But then again the pick guard doesn't look like a LPJ
  8. @LucasLorenzo Gibson still hand scrapes the binding with a straight razor. Looks like the razor "chattered" while in process, Depends on how well you like the rest of the guitar, it can be fixed up , should be under warranty. Or do what everyone else in USA does, return it
  9. There was another thread on here about a year or two ago about that screw. Not sure if I can find that post
  10. Try this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibson_Kalamazoo
  11. @rct I don't believe he's looking to buy replacements. Think he's wondering out loud about how the HP got appointments that other LP's did not, and if they were factory. And the answer was yes, factory
  12. The "High Performance" guitars where sort of all over the map with what they came with.. they did not come with the standard appointments as this was a thinking of the old management that people wanted something a little different than just a "standard" Les Paul http://legacy.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/2017/USA/Les-Paul-Traditional/High-Performance.aspx
  13. L&M offer free curb side pickup, and I think some free home delivery You should call your local store for pickup hours. I dropped a rental this way, and picked up a Airturn pedal this way.
  14. other than Long and McQuade.. I don't think I know of any guitar parts company in Canada. but they can get you just about anything. or try Amazon.ca you'd be surprised what you can get in a day mostly at reasonable prices.. some awful prices too. if you purchase from the USA and it's under a certain amount it's duty free (think around $20. unless they upped it to $50).. also when ordering from the USA.. avoid couriers.. UPS/FedEx/Purolator they all charge a brokerage fee that's absolutely obscene. stick to USPS the plain old postal system. and many times goes uninspected so no duty at all
