  1. Yes! It still works and is holding up. I have a 2017 Traditional HP with one also. It still does the job. I've posted a few videos on my youtube channel about then. One is titled "My 2015 Gibson Les Paul Cassic revisited 5 years later". Here is a video Link:
  2. I did get with them. It's written in the post. They said this is the first time that had an issue like this. They have the stand back at their place to look at it and see what's going on. Read the rest of the post for the full scoop.
  3. If I came off like an *** I didn't meen too. It's all good.The backround and text did that because I copied and pasted so I wouldn't have to type it all again. That's how it turned out and it wouldn't let me change it.
  4. It's a Gibson so it's a Nitro finnish not poly. I always keep my guitars in their cases unless I'm useing them. That's why I have the stand. You can't put it into this stand with force. As you put the guitar into this stand it pushes down the top of the stand so the doors close with the weight of the guitar. As you pick the guitar up from the stand the doors release. This happened over a period of time and it only did this to my Gibson Les Pauls. I know the marks are tiny but when you are sold something that's gaurenteed safe for your instruments that is the part that's iritating. These had
  5. (NEW GUITAR STAND PROBLEMS FOR GIBSON LES PAULS) Has anybody noticed any problems useing D&A Guitar stand? I have some new issues on my Gibson Les Pauls from useing the D&A starfish active guitar stand. It is only on my Gibson Les Pauls but none of my other guitars. I've sent the stand back to D&A (per their request) so they can look into the issue because they have never heard of any problems like this.There are two tiny scratches one on each side of the headstock (where the guitar is held by the rubber in the guitar stand) and this is on 3 Gibson Les Pauls in the same spots. (I w
  6. I was late to the HP 2 party. I may not be the only one.. This id for them... lol. Thanks.
  7. I just watched a new review from Andertons about the 2018 Gibson HP line (their 2nd review of this year). They did a recap because the new 2018 HP guitars are now showing up without the G-Force tuning system. This isn't a post for g-force haters or pro g-force. I just think that the HP line being advertised as a modern guitar with the auto tuners should have them on the guitar. Or has there been so many negative reviews on the g-force that Gibson just completely abandoned all the years and money they sunk into it? I also wonder if it may be because the company (tronical) that makes the g-force
  8. The Les Paul Studio has a thinner body than a traditional Les Paul. No much thinner but that may be the reason for the short switch. Switch craft is what I see most people use as a replacement.
  9. You can change the tranny fluid without any issues. It's a myth that it makes it worse just like the old myth that if you use synthetic motor oil you can't go back to conventional motor oil. I've heard tons of those myths. I was a mechanic for years and went to school for it and worked at an automotive garage (1992-2001). I stopped doing it as a job because I started hateing it plus 3 back surgeries kinda limited me. I still do mechanic work on my stuff along with family and friends vehicles. I change the tran fluid every 20k in my vehicles.
  10. I don't believe that Gibson offered a Les Paul Classic in a tobacco burst finnish in 2017! Both Classic HP and T models were Green Ocean Burst, Heritage Cherry Sunburst and a Gold top. The 2017 Classic (traditional line) had a couple of extra options later in the year and they were a Heritage Cherry Sunburst with a Plus top and the other color was Surf Green. I didn't see any 2017 Gibson Les Paul Classic tobacco Burst. As for the 2017 Gibson les Paul Traditional I do not believe they offered a tobacco burst finnish either. The Traditional line colors were Antique Burst, Heritage Cherry Sunbur
  11. I'm going to be ordering a Bare Knuckle Miracle Man pickup to put in the bridge of my 2017 Gibson Les Paul Standard T. I've read some reviews and watched the few demos of the miracle man pup I could find. I normally go with Seymour Duncan as my passive pickup and EMG as my active. I found the miracle man pickup while doing some searching for something a little differant. It is a passive pickup based on Zakk Wyldes sound which is active emg's. I already have 2 les pauls loaded with ZW EMG"S and my 2015 Gibson Les Paul Classic has a Seymour Duncan Alternitive 8 (alnico 8 magnet)in the bridge. I
  12. The only reason I brought it up was because I thought it was funny that after all this time it was a post about an obvious screw up on the web site. I don't cry over such things. I'll still be here when somebody has any questions that I may be able to help with. Although I usually only answer stuff I know about or I send them to somebody I think may have the answer. Oh well! As long as we all have fun....
  13. Guess I never offended anybody until I posted about the cracked head stock on Gibsons site.
