  1. the sweetest sound comes from my les paul ( 76 Custom with 3 original pup) with the bridge and middle together. nothing I have found sounds like it!!!
  2. got e-mail from gison, clicked on link to check it out on the forum, "Favorite Pickup Combinations" said I was not authorized???????????
  3. I went searching to find something better than my custom... only to find nothing comes close, yes it's heavy, a wide padded leather strap sure did help, I have a couple of new toys, and the 61 re issue SG, love the neck, very close if not the same as my les paul custom (1976), but it doesn't quite sound as nice. I love an SG, my first gibson was an SG, but like I said...nothing comes close to my paul. thanks Barry

  5. I have a 76 LP Custom. it is heavy, I used to not like playing it because it hurt my shoulder. I bought a Levy 4" or 4 1/2" wide padded leather strap, cost about $50.00. It was well worth it this strap is the best. I love playing my old LP now. Buy a wide padded leather Levy strap. you will not be disappointed.
