  1. ========================= "there are approximately a zillion websites..." Ok, can you give me a URL? ------ Aaron, I agree 100%. The problem is that the nearest music shop is over an hour away, and that is by car, which I don't have. Hence, my thinking of doing it myself. I started from scratch back in 1987 and opened a bicycle shop. To do so, I had to be the owner, accountant, salesman, mechanic, etc. Once I got over my fear of taking things apart, I was able to not only do that, by reassemble them, fixed. My thought being is that there are a lot less parts to a guitar than a bike. I just need to know where to start. My guess is with the string that is at the right height and closest to "in tone". Since mine all seem to be set at the correct height, all I need find is the string that when played open and at the 12th fret, sound in tone w/each other and start there. Anyone who knows what I mean and can do/has done this, please let me know.
  2. I just bought an Epiphone "Dot ES 335" a week ago. It sounds ok, but it needs help in the tuning. Or intonation. It tunes up fine using my Tuner. And doing the checking it 6th sting 5th fret to 5th string open, sounds fine. Etc. It's down at the 12th fret or so that the tuning/intonation starts to lose it. Never having tuned a Gibson using the adjustments at the bridge, I am not sure how to start. As in, do I start w/the high E, Low E, or what? I don't like the idea of using trial and error on this. Can someone lead me to a site that describes this? Or tell me how to do it? The neck is straight, so that isn't the problem.

    ================================================== Why do you say that? I have no idea, hence the question. I do know that the Special II has the 700 and 650 as someone said. I've gotten a few different answers for the "Dot". How come, since the "Dot" sells for more than twice the price. I am not at all arguing, I just don't get it. Seems like the Gibson '57s would sound more like the original did. Not? Thanks all.

  5. Can someone please tell me the difference between the PUPs in a Special II and an ES 335. They look different. I have an Epiphone Special II with two black humbuckers. 700 and 600? I am thinking of getting an Epi ES 335 for the hollow body and assuming better components. I can't find that info anywhere. So, I'm asking for some help.
