  1. Duncan suggested either the Seth Lover set or perhaps before they go out of production, the Bonamassa "Skinners". I have a set of those in my R9 (before they were called Skinners) and to my ears, produce some of the best tone I have ever heard, especially when push a little bit harder through my 50 watt Victoria. Add a little dirt and you're in hog heaven. Not really sure how they would come off in a 335, or if I can afford them. S
  2. The MHS is very smooth and vintage sounding - Like you, I do want just a touch more bit too. Not LP but maybe a 335 on a mini dose of go-juice. Gibson says they come with "BumbleBee" caps but I believe they are a inadequate Luxe knock-off. Cap job is in order. I have had Burstbuckers my Les Paul and they did sound very good. Of course being a totally different animal, I'm sure it will sound awesome. I've also heard good things about Classic '57's going into 335s. Think I'll go out on a limb and checkout some Seymour Duncan offerings. Have had really good luck with his gear. Thank
  3. Thanks for your view! Anyone else??
  4. I just received a '59 ES-335TDN and she is beautiful looking, and for the most part, sounding. Working with all control settings, I am perhaps not totally wild about the tonality of the MHS pickups. I would love to hear from owners of said guitar and get some feedback. Thanks, Steve
  5. Hello KB, I would think your interpretation on your LP Traditional is pretty much correct - The T should be for Traditional and the LB is for Light Burst.
  6. Just thought I would add to this, late as it is: I just purchased a 2012 Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus Top with the model number: LPNSTDPTSCH1 That model breaks down as follows: LP = Les Paul N = Nashville STD = Standard P = Plus TS = Tea Burst CH = Chrome hardware 1 = First run (Not a second or not a Historic) FYI.
  7. Let me restate this: Will the TonePros TPKB3-N's drop right in to the existing holes without modification to the headstock other than drilling the top screw holes for the second screw on the tuning machine?
  8. Greetings and Happy New Year to everyone! I'm in the process of giving my LP Standard a vintage sound and possible look makeover. Do the TonePros TPKB3-N fit well in the existing headstock peg hole and does the lower screw hole of the tuner lineup with the existing Grover lower hole? Thanks, Steve

    SG Classic

    Hello, I have an SG Classic and I am changing out the P90’s with DiMarzio Virtual P90’s. Each pickup has 5 wires – red, green, black, white and bare. I want to set them up with push/pull volume pots to get three way switching with series / parallel output. I found a good diagram on SD’s Website (http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/wiring-diagrams/schematics.php?schematic=2h_2v_3w_ssp), but of course this is for SD Humbuckers. I cannot find anything on the Dimarzio website that makes sense to me or that comes close to the Seymour diagram. Would the hookup be the same for the DiMarzio’s a
  10. Would it help to tune up a step or two during this process?
  11. There are at least two frets that are a little high. I used the StewMac rocker method over three frets to find them. They arn't to high, just a little, but I'm sure high enough to help with the buzz.
  12. I have a '74 Les Paul Custom that I was trying to adjust the Truss Rod to get less bow in the neck (she is too flat, getting string buzz). The clearance when I capo the first fret and hold down the 6th string on the last fret, measuring at the 8th fret clearance between the top of the fret and bottom of the string is greater than .008” but less than .009". When I turned the adjuster nut counter clockwise to let her out a little, the nut spun free on the threads of the truss rod. What now?
