  1. Hi,

    I'm looking for help for my Gibson DF.

    Do not hesitate to come back to me to exchange.

    Thanks

  2. Oh, thanks Pip. I didn't know that. Explains why it's normal I guess. Heheheh { 8-] I'm considering filming the presentation and putting it on YouTube. Will post a link on this thread later if, as, and when I do.
  3. Thanks Bence. I was convinced that it is but it's such a good example (for its' age) that I wanted to have some back-up to my own opinions. I am pleased to say that I didn't rip the guy off either and gave him a good price for it. Good luck in the footy. I have a Hungarian lady-friend and it's great to see her get so excited over a game of football! Heheheh. Brgs Skwizz { 8-]
  4. Hey guys, Is it a fake? I don't believe it is but it's too good to be true otherwise (and you know what they say..!). I just bought a 1991 Gibson Les Paul Custom. I've checked it out as best I can and believe it to be genuine. But I'd like some more expert opinion (please don't direct me to the MLP forum; I'd rather it be a fake). I need to check it out further is because it is 25 years old and almost unmarked. The condition is so good it's unreal (see pic's). It's either a fake or it's been sitting in its' case underneath someone's bed somewhere for 25 years. It's normal over here not to get a CoA, so I can't go by that. Anyway, here's some photo's. I won't post serial # as I don't want to help the fakers. For the same reason I will be more than happy just to receive 'yes' / 'no' answers with no justifications that they might also use. Thanks for looking and, by the way, for those of you who know me, this is not for me. I am aware that it's a 'hefty-lefty' and that I'm a 'righty-tighty'; It will be a surprise birthday present for my left-handed business partner (and best-mate of fifty+ years), in a few weeks time. I'd rather know now if I'm going to be giving him a fake. Brgs Skwizz
  5. Hey guys, Is it a fake? I don't believe it is but it's too good to be true otherwise (and you know what they say..!). I just bought a (used) 1991 "Gibson" Les Paul Custom. I've checked it out as best I can and believe it is a genuine Gibson LP Custom. But I'd like some more expert opinion (please don't direct me to MLP forum; I'd rather it be a fake).

  6. A 12-string is a specialised instrument and you either need one or you don't. Your question implies that this might be the wrong instrument for your needs. Re-stringing as a 6-string is possible but the instrument would never function as a 6-string. The nut and bridge saddles are cut differently.
  7. Thank you, the 3-D effect goes quite deep as well so it looks amazing as it's moved around too.
  8. LOL Nice and congrat's on your acquisition. I thought they were still available, even as a limited run. Strange to think they're hard to get hold of already.
  9. Hi Johnny Joe, Sorry for delay in my reply. I don't often get back here these days (spend more time on MLP, see my sig for forum link). The R.I.P. allows you to connect it to a P.C.. From that you can create other custom settings, outside of the guitar and then transfer them to it, if you wished. You still have Chameleon tone I'm assuming that you are not switching the MCK off (pressing it in) after selecting the tone you want. That would Power-off the MCK and its' chameleon tone at which point the guitar's natural Pup tones would be in use. Otherwise, you may need to adjust your Pup volume/Tone settings. The altered tones are not too dramatic but are noticeable enough that you should hear the difference. Have a look at the chart and Notes on Page 14 of the manual (3.1) to see how you should set the Pups to maximise the effect.
  10. Just a thought, have you also tried the sounds in Yellow bank? I am supposing that you also have it actually turned on(?) while playing. Reading the manual, it suggests that (for the green bank) the tone controls should be fully clockwise and the piezo should NOT be blended (except for position 'A').
  11. I had this issue but it was to do with the factory strings that come fitted to the guitar. I stripped 'em off and put my usual Bright Wire 0.10's on and everything was fine and dandy again.

    MCK issue

    I've replied to your post on MLP. Should anyone else wish to view that thread, please follow the link in my sig. The thread's in the Les Paul section (just use the 'Search' function if it's out of date by then). I rarely come over here any more as MLP has more (useful) traffic.
  13. I've re-posted this on the MLP forums, in the Les Pauls section. Link in sig.
  14. Hi, and welcome to the 400 club! Sorry for delay but I hardly ever visit this forum nowadays. I haven't really played around with the different sounds, I'm still into the normal guitar qualities. Using the green bank, select the sound you want. After 200ms the sound will have loaded and this sound will now be the default sound, even when powered off, until a different one is selected. If this is not happening, check your manual and ensure the piezo is available and the magnetic pups are working properly. Also ensure that the volume/tone controls are fully clockwise and that the piezo pup is not blended in (except for Position 'A'). You should manually select the pup recommended in the manual for the appropriate sound you require (although other sounds are available using different pups). If nothing's still happening, hit me up on the MLP forums (see sig link).
