  1. You're right ... i will ask the guitar owner for the serial. & When i will have the answer from Gibson (not tomorrow ) i will post the pickup model here ... Ok thank you Kid !
  2. Hi, I just bought a pair of used Gibson USA from an old Les Paul Studio 2003 (Gold). (inscribed Gibson USA on the back) And i just do not know which pickups it can be (???) But i made a comparaison with an other LesPaul that i have which have Classic 57 & plus on it. The only thing i can say is that the Classics seem to be more powerfull & rounder... the other have a really great sound & more clean ! Is this is possible for a 2003 Les Paul Studio with some Burstbuckers on it ect ... ? Thanks Daniel
  3. Hi Micheal, It's 950$ cnd ... yes i will see the seller in person ... the reconstruction of the guitar is visible yes !
  4. Yes the guitar has been broken Big Bill, but this is why i ask which model is this to get the right price ... a studio ? ... if the head stock hve been repair correctly, it should be ok ???
  5. Hi, I just don't know if this guitar is a real Gibson or even if it's a studio or a standard ect ... the only thing i know is that, she was made in 2005 ... please can you help me about this (look at the images) ..& how is his value ? Thanks a lot Daniel
  6. Thank you Guys for your fast responds ... Yes an investment on an appropriate transport to a real music store should be the solution ... i have to made a desicion ... Your responds are exactly what I wanted to hear ... Thank you all !
  7. Hi everyone ! There is no public transport at all where i am & no musical store, and i fear to death buy a guitar on the net. But there is a Best Buy store which sell a few Gibson, but there no showroom to see the guitars before. So, about this i have two question : Because i know how manufacturers work & does when they made a bad Job on a product, (to save money) they send it to a supermarket not specialized (in this case) in music instrument where the most part of the buyers & sellers are not musicians. Is this the case of the Gibson Family ? ... I have worked for manufacturers for years. i know ! What about Best Buy, can i trust them ? I am interested to buy a 2017 Les Paul Tribute HP or 2017 Les Paul Studio, i want to be sure. I don't want to be rude, but it's a lot of money, and because i do not have any transport it can be very frustrating if something is wrong with the guitar ! Thank you Daniel
  8. Thank You Stein ... i will extend the wire to a prober length ... i really want the 57 + at the bridge ! Thanks Daniel
  9. Hello When we don't have money, things can be worst !( I want a LesPaul but i can't ) Here we go: I bought an Agile Al-2500 (used one) which have classic 57 & 57 Plus in it... (this was the reason for the purchase) But by lack of experience or ear, I have found that the pickups were not in the right place: C.Plus being at the Neck and the Classic at the Bridge ... Furthermore, the sounds of the C.Plus at the neck is not good at all to me (too round and dull glaring lack of clarity (Treble) Anyway I decided to fix everything, but I see that the 57 Classic is cut and is too short to put it in the neck ... I can't do nothing ! I have been shocked ! ... the C.Plus at the neck sounds very bad & it's more then warm ! Someone has a solution? Can I add a piece of wire & welded them together ? (can I use electric tape ?) Can i let the pickups at their bad place and desoldering the wires and inverse the pot solder .. vice versa ? ... Is the sound will change or you will be altered? .. in fact I do not know what to do ! Thank you Daniel
  10. Hi ***Les Paul Traditional Tobaco Burst edition special canadienne 2011*** ... the last week a friend ask me about the pickups in it, i realized that i just don't know ! Exact model: LPTDFTBNH1 serial number : 103911395 Les Paul Traditional Tobaco Burst edition special canadienne 2011 .... ,,,supposetly Yorkville canada asked Gibson to made 200 of these guitars ...strange ! (see the image) Now if it's possible, can you answer me about what kind of pickups it have ? Thanks you all Daniel
  11. Hi i will receive my Epiphone LP Tribute plus today ... what it mean if the pickups have no plastic protector on it : a demo ? I don't want a demo ! I don't want a dirty prostitute guitar ... it will be a return and a good post here ! thanks
  12. For now my choice is the Tribute plus, but is it the 60's Flametop as we see in this video : It's the same ? **There is a number to identify the guitar in every store ?** http://www.epiphone....lus-Outfit.aspx ... https://www.long-mcq...aded_Cherry.htm
  13. Hi thank you for your time: As mentionned, my demand is turns around a good quality build guitar. Well first of all i am not a real guitar player ! I play well but for composition only : i'm 53 so for me the stage is from the past .. from 1989 to 1992 i have composed many song that i have never finished ! I still have all of my compositions on 4 track K7 & also on floppy disk 3.5 for my the midi part ! Today it's a restart & i will finished my works ! Yes Old guitar music from the 70's -80's are really fun to play ... but modern is also great ! But for modern i already have a JTV-69 VAriax from Line 6 which try to emulate the Gibson sounds ! I like play enjoyable music to the ear and not something too thundering...my voice is sharp a bit like Geddy Lee. I am not a heavy man & not a soft man either : I really love the crunchy Gibson sounds but at the same time a good powered solo who puts the song in an other scale (for a moment) is provides energy for the rest of the song. Rarely i play clean but it's always good to have ! Yes I play rock but not like dirty heavy metal stuff ! Crunchy distorsion but well controlled ! I already have a Fender Strat that i found not crunchy at all : he sounds of the fender is soft & round... Gibson & Epiphone are like Chainsaw ... I don't have big hands & long fingers so a middle neck (?) like the Fender is the way to go for me : i'm 5-9 About artist example, no ! ... About Pickups : the 57 like the Tribute plus sounds great ! ... but what do i know ? If i buy a Gibson all my money will disappear & there will be not enough money for a good amp ... because a good guitar with a bad amp = bad sounds. I already have a Fender Mustang III V2 ... & if i buy an Epiphone , the rest of the money will go to a great amp !
