  1. Well to my dismay I think I have found my issue! I did try lowering pups and raising them ended up where they were basically to begin with...was NOT the pups. Took straight edge and checked relief and it is good to go as well. Action is as low as possible with no buzz on frets. Strings are same I always use and these are not that old. I even tried another amplifier too not the issue. So, what was the issue, well turns out it is me! I guess I am lifting my finger tips off at times hard enough to make the string ring out! I guess I will just have to learn to not strike the lower strings s
  2. Yea I might try lowering ever so slightly IF tie the strings off above the nut doesn't do it. Will do so when I can get the chance to do so. The ringing however does not seem to be coming from above the headstock though if this matters. I agree 100% I am hoping it isn't something not fixable so to speak. I don't think it is in my technique though. I play as clean and precise as possible. I have always used D'Addario 9-42's, surely it isn't the strings? I change strings often as well so that isn't the issue either. That's just it. When I want to mute with ti
  3. Thanks for the replies thus far! Just to clarify the ringing doesn't seem to be coming from above the headstock. I will try the string above the nut when I get back in from work in a few days to see if this is indeed the case. My initial thoughts was maybe the pups need to be lowered just a tad too. I agree play slow and clean and speed comes in time, and I do play clean even with speed, but just for some reason on these two strings as I stated as if a mild hammer on type ringing out after finger leaves the string. It is more predominate on lower end of fretboard as well versus up high pa
  4. JM2112 WOW what a nice Custom you found she is spectacular! Nice family pic to boot! HNGD and congrats.
  5. Here I have been away from the forum more or less for days and see a post on a 90's era Studio and thought well this might be interesting to see what this fella D!ck had to say about it and such. LMAO was I ever wrong haha. I find it amusing we all have opinions based upon or experience's and knowledge, but I have never understood why folks get bent out of shape and become so defensive. Sad it tis as I personally think this forum offers a LOT for anyone no matter who, what, when and where. I value and appreciate everyone's insight here. So with that said...hope everyone has an outstanding
  6. HNGD! Beautiful Studio! I absolutely love the white and black and gold hardware.
  7. Okay gonna try to explain what is happening here. As an example, say I am just playing a scale, any scale doesn't matter. Only on the low E 6th and A 5th strings, whenever I go to move from say the E to the A I get a ringing from the E string, or from the A to the D a ringing from the A string, again playing any scale up or down, I get a ringing from the string I just left. Almost as if I was doing a soft hammer on. No matter how I remove my fingers, and I feel I am ok in my technique it happens, and only on these two strings, and only on this Lester. I also ensured it was not my picking
  8. I thought I had replied to this post but evidently I didn't! First welcome aboard the forum. Great bunch of folks here and very knowledgeable, oh and lots of opinions as one might expect lol. I agree with the fact that play them all if possible and pick the one that "talks" to you so to speak. Out of the 3 years you mentioned I'd pick the 2013, they are just a different Lester to me sound/tone wise than any of the previous years of Traditional's. The 2013 Traditional "is" why I ended up with a 2014 Traditional, and personally I am glad I waited (wasn't in the position to buy a 2013) becau
  9. I am totally taken aback at Gibson and the fact that they think that innovation means completely deviating from their "roots" so to speak with all these changes to ALL models! Sure we are gonna moan about this or that, or that they didn't do this or that, that is human nature somewhat, and yes Gibson can't win...but they can't win in spite of themselves. When you think innovation means forgetting where you came from and what your customers want, or you forget about one and completely go after another type of customer you have in my opinion lost your base customer, the loyal customer so to sp
  10. Jamguy she is a beauty! 2013's is what bit me but couldn't find one with top I liked once I was ready to buy one. 2014's came out and I took the plunge. Although the 12th fret inlay doesn't bother me or look bad in my opinion, I will say that 2015 headstock is hideous at best. Again, Congrats on a fine Lester you have there!

    VACreeper HNGD she is gorgeous ! Seems on every forum folks are getting a Goldtop, and a Goldtop has always been my favorite . Although i don't need one I will say that my next Lester will be a Goldtop Reissue as well. Congrats VACreeper!
  12. She looks great! Nice rig your playing her through to boot! Congrats and HNGD!
  13. Midiman56 she looks fantastic! Stunning, no wonder Les Paul said to apply a Gold top, they simply look phenomenal!

    That's great! After having mine a few weeks I changed string gauge from what she came with, had the action adjusted a tad, few saddles filed, tweak of the truss rod and she is better now than she was when she came out of the box, and I didn't think that was possible, but it was. Love the 59ish neck profile and those 59 pups are spectacular. cjsinla,,,WOW what a top[drool]! That would make a bunch of folks envious for sure! Agreed! Leave the pick guard on her!! I'm ok without a pickguard on a Lester but I just think they look better with than without but...to each his/he

    HNGD! She is a beauty! How do you like her so far? I wouldn't trade or sell mine for anything.
