  1. Guitar is 1973 Gibson LP Deluxe. I have to either take off plastic knob or loosen it some from switches pole in order for it to lock into place for Treble play. I noticed not much thread of switch sticks out of body. Nut is barely on a few starting threads. [
  2. Happy Times! Good going. Play more and watch TV, ect less! I've been diligently learning only since Nov 2015. I started getting enthusiastic before last Thanksgiving timeframe after I sat few hours on an old acoustic that was in the house collecting dust... and I was trying to play "easy" guitar chords for song "Wish You Were Here". So once I did that song successfully enough in my 'book after a few hours I told myself I must learn. I've since gotten a few electric guitars, much equipment and books and apps. My wife got a bass and piano and we got other instruments around so all togethe
  3. Thank y'all for all the good info. I'll be using all the info one way or another no doubt. I've gotten various implements mentioned by many of y'all and using or to use those on other instruments. I will head the lessons told by y'all. For my Gibson Les Paul I ended up going with Gibson "Fatboy" Strap and Fender Strap Blocks (just like those Grosch washers). Well, this will stay the set up unless time tells otherwise... All seems good to go: strap really comfy/distributes weight takes much of the LP's load of my 'ole back, good tight slit/leather/rubber washers make for (I predict...) exce
  4. From what I read about every strap lock I have checked on all have vulnerabilities of unlocking unexpectedly. Seems there is no lock out there virtually 99% sure of not unlocking unexpectedly. So I'd say the better ones out there maybe 80% sure to remain locked, but I still don't like those odds. And again, those lock systems it seems then stick out too much for a good fit in the guitars case. So except for actually screwing the strap in with oversized washer seems no 99% guarantees of no fail. So yes, even a tight fit strap hole/slit over the guitar pin still no guarantees. But with me its al
  5. I was checking straps for Les Paul online and saw this one: GruvGear DuoStrap Signature Ergonomic Double Strap. There is a complication I saw about it though that their regular duo strap model is for double cutaways and so needing an adapter option the same company sells for it for single cutaways. The adapter option which is a strap fits somehow across back side of body, so I am not even sure even with that adapter if the strap even it works on Les Paul. Anyone ever use one of these on Les Paul? http://www.gruvgear.com/duostrap-signature Also I saw these also... anyone knows anything abou
  6. wow, but not sure fits and anyway only one and $40 so no way for me ... but beauty and best material ever... why they stop good stuff like this, well I'll get my free replacement same stock one and hope someday stumble upon some old all metal one that fits... https://reverb.com/item/1482937-gibson-vintage-dome-knob-black

  8. Saw these, I'm still checking though... Wish there was a place near me where I can actually walk in a place to see options, but on,y online. Well, maybe when I visit Bay Area are some stores... Yep, these though nice colors as in the black base keeps a good contrast while the gold top matches the sunburst color....

  9. For less than a month I've owned a Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe II Limited 50s neck color Vintage Sunburst. I just noticed the tone knob to back/bridge pickup broken inside. It works, but wobbly. I have no idea how it happen. I am pretty careful with it and never noticed bumping it or such. After I play it I always put it away in its case it came with ... a very decent and arched case. I have full coverage at store I bought it from for two years so I'll get another replacement. But I'd probably want to take all these stock knobs off anyway since I noticed its only thin plastic, I want ones mo
