  1. Ahem....why don't you guys check out my signature? (down below)
  2. Thanks for the good luck wishes, rct. But you did ask the question. And I merely answered on ways to achieve what you asked for. Then it's entirely up to you if you want to go through with them. I work in retail too, and I can assure you that I don't know the source materials on all the products in the store. And it's true that it's up to your employer to supply you with these answers. But you can also ask the question. It is also true that these questions doesn't really apply easily to all types of businesses. But I think it's easy to apply it to food. Like, where is this tomato from? How much emissions from it's transport? Was lots of pesticides used in it's production. Was the workers on the farm payed fair wages for their job? In the end, if I want cheap tomatoes, that's what I'll get. But if I want a really good tomato? What will need to happen? Less pesticides generally means smaller harvest, fair wages usually means more expensive overhead which all adds to the cost of the tomato. I remember seeing an episode on Chef's Table on Netflix where Dan Barber who runs BlueHill restaurant in NYC talked a lot about that as a business modell. Have look to hear more. He has many interesting views. Also, sorry for going slightly off topic, but it feels like this is a thread about sustainability. I'm sure we all don't want the rainforest destroyed to we can get our LP fix.
  3. It's always nice with options. But what's wrong with the titanium nut?
  4. There are many ways in which you can contribute to the cause. But if we leave chaining yourself to trees out, I'd say perhaps not buying that cheap patio furniture in teak? You know, vote with your wallet. Ask the store where it's from. Was the workers payed proper wages (fair trade), was the wood wild or grown? If it was grown, did they grow it eco friendly or use a lot of pesticides? The more people that asks these types of questions will affect what the businesses buy. Simple as that.
  5. The G-Force site is here. Are you saying it works differently than previous models?
  6. I don't know why but I always felt drawn to the seafood green. Maybe it's the light back or the allure of the deep? Anyway, I'm forever stuck in Vintage sunburst land. I have also kept the pick guard off, but since seeing your post I figured I'd try with it on. At least for a few weeks to see if it grows on me? How are you feeling about only one tone control vs the Boost? For me I prefer the boost. Are there any mods for the boost switch of this guitar?
  7. Happy to hear you got it sorted. Also, I hope you have learned a lot and maybe got a decent luthier to go to in the future.
  8. I really like the thin ones like I have on my Tele, but I obviously want some more padding for the shoulder. So I went with Gibsons Modern Vintage.
  9. Great! So I assume it's on it's way to become naturally relic'ed? Like most guys pay extra for.
  10. I have recently contacted them too and not yet heard anything. But I will contact the store soon and let them deal with it.
  11. This is simply not true. Many in forums had issues with some of the features, but the build and quality has never been in contest. As an 2015 LP Classic owner I can say that wood selection, fit and finish is top notch. But as someone that have spent years trying to find the right guitar I can only recommend you to try as many as possible. If you are looking for a Les Paul-type guitar you should also play Epiphones. If you can't tell the difference the save that money for something else. There are also lot's of other brands that make good guitars of the Les Paul type, like PRS, Hagström and more. So get out there and play everything you can get yours grubby mitts on! And when you get something really special in your hands, you will know. I promise.
  12. Wow! It's like asking which is the best guitar ever. I think the best guitar in the world is: The one you're holding. This likely means your playing it and all is good.
  13. Perhaps it's time to retrofit a G-force? :-" (sorry, I had to say it...)
  14. Actually they didn't. They split everything into 2 lines. The High Performance (HP) line still has the G-Force and Tronical still sell it for the aftermarket.
  15. Here's my LP Classic 2015 in Vintage Sunburst.
  16. No guitar pro here, but a professional troubleshooter. After reading through the thread and what's been done. The fact that it played nice and did not go out of tune at the luthier intrigues me. Did you consider that this could possibly be an environmental issue? I mean, temperature and humidity shifts, which affects the wood.
  17. Before I post anything on any forum (I am active in loads) I think about this comic:
  18. I noticed this too when I first got my G-Force. Later, I put the accuracy of mine to max and when I use single thing mode it tunes up.

    What a waste...

    That depends on what is important to you. For me, it has always been about the feel of the guitar and mainly the neck. When I grab the neck I feel like I'm channeling the spirit of all mighty guitar players that has come before me and I know: "This is the stuff!". After that, a light opens from heaven to shine down on me while angels sing: "Aaaaaahhhhh" and I play my first chord. True Story. Now, I learned about this issue after I purchased my 2015 Classic (with 40% off) so I am good since it's an easy fix. But I have yet to run into any issue. And maybe that's the thing? I know how rare it is for a guitar to speak to me like the two I own, that I don't mind the other stuff? Come to think of it, it sound like love, family, relationship. You don't fret the small stuff. (pun intended)
  20. First! How long have you had it? I mean if it's less than a month you need to break it in first and let it settle before starting to adjust stuff. Second! When all that's done it sounds as it could benefit of a proper setup job by an experienced luthier. That is, if you're not up to the job yourself.
  21. But the 2015 is the best Les Paul ever. Or, at least mine is.

    What a waste...

    Really, just because of the nut? But how did it feel in your hands? Me, I just loved the neck. Nut or no nut. :)
  23. May I ask what you're going to use it for? I mean, since you already have two and they both seems to cover a lot of tones that you can use. Perhaps you wan't a "better" guitar (in the sense of better for you)? Have you considered selling the ones you have to finance a new purchase?

    Bummed out

    So I have some marketing lingo coming your way.... The new LPs with no weight relief coming out later will be called the Les Paul Original. Made like it was in the fifties. :lol:
  25. Who is saying that? (It has '57 Classics/Super '57 as stated on their website, unless someone has changed pickups themselves) Maybe people make the mistake thinking the zebra coil has something to do with it?
