  1. I bought this Les Paul Studio Gold Top last year and it just doesn't sound right. The high E string sounds off but it reads E on tuner both open and on the 12th fret. How can this be? It just doesn't make sense. Does anyone have any ideas. I took it to a local shop and he thought he had it tuned but to my ear it is not. I live an hour away from anyone who works with Gibson's.
  2. Can anyone tell me what the name of this song is and who performs it? You have to start the lesson to hear it. Thanks!!! http://www2.gibson.com/Lessons/Skills-House/Guitar-Apprentice/2011/Level-1---Wannabe---Slow.aspx/#disqus_thread
  3. Finally I found my 64ths ruler. The nut measures near 2/64ths at High E and and 5/64ths on the Low E. Maybe the nut is installed backwards or wasn't cut correctly. I had rather become my own tech. I see there are a variety of materials to chose from for the nut. I saw nylon, bone, even saw a brass one. Which is the best? What would SRV get if he played a Les Paul and of course, could get one. "The nut on the Les Paul Studio ’60s Tribute is made from Corian, which is mainly composed of acrylic polymer. This popular synthetic alternative to bone offers a very durable material, delivers enhanced sustain, and holds the tolerances of the precision cuts made in the slotting process. It is installed into the top surface of the neck, butting up to the end of the fingerboard to ensure proper tone and sustain transfer, and its nut slots are cut with Gibson’s PLEK system to ensure precise fit, break angle, and string spacing. Nut Width The width of the nut on the Les Paul Studio ’60s Tribute is approximately 1.695”, the traditional nut width of Gibson electric guitars. "
  4. Thanks guys. I really don't want to go the exchange route. My 04 Wine Red Studio was better but this has the P90's and that gives me a good reason to get an SG to get the Humbuckers back. I might go out of town to Guitar Center and get them to look at it. However, when I finally get my LP Deluxe Gold Top, it will be as perfect as it can be, I promise you that.
  5. Good Idea. It came from Amazon.com. Believe it or not, they are one of the very few places that still has the Gold Top Studio.
  6. What about the frets? When I slide my thumb and fingers down the neck on the edges of the fretboard I can feel the ends of the frets. On my MIM Strat they are more recessed so that I can't feel them. Is this a flaw or something to be expected?
  7. Its definitely higher than my Strat. I figured a tech was the way to go but I have no Gibson Dealers in my town because Gibson will only allow high volume dealers sell their products, or so I am told. But my Strat dealer is a nice guy and he can probably look at it for me. Thanks. It just didn't make sense to me.
  8. I recently got this new Studio Gold Top and when I play chords such as open C and G it doesn't sound in tune. It sounds kind of sick, and I don't mean that in a good way. Could it just be the tone of this guitar? It is spot on according to my tuner, and sounds great playing individual notes. My Strat sounds right in tune when playing chords, but I don't understand how the LP could be in tune but not sound in tune. It is straight out of the box except for the tuning and ordered online. Is there any adjustments that I could make?
