Hey all! I bought a Les Paul Studio (2021 model I believe) off of Reverb recently, and am loving it so far! One thing I've noticed though is that the coil tapping on the neck pickup doesn't really seem to be doing a whole a lot. When I do the split coil on the bridge pickup it's a pretty noticeable difference, but on the neck pickup it sounds like literally nothing is changing. I've also noticed that when I'm playing in the bridge pickup it's pretty quiet noise wise (no buzzing or hum from electronics, etc.) but when I switch to the neck or middle positions there's a fairly audible buzz that I can hear. So my question is if anyone else has had an experience like this with their Les Paul studios? I'm beginning to think there might be something wrong with the wiring in the neck pickup, but don't really have any frame of reference to compare it to to know for sure. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Hey, People! I am 100% sure there's a thread around here somewhere about this exact same topic, but here goes… I got my new Epiphone 2020 SG Special a few days ago, and it's awesome. I see none of the QC and fit-and-finish issues that have plagued these guitars in reviews on youtube, etc. HOWEVER 😬… There's quite a bit of fret buzz below the 5th fret on perhaps strings 1, 2, and 3… and the high E slips off the edge of the fretboard. I am not a Luthier, and the whole point of buying this guitar was to spend a lot of $$$. So, I'm not going to take it in for any work. Do you think this is something I can remedy myself? A new nut? Adjust the stop bar tailpiece? I bought this from Sweetwater, and their guitars are supposedly put through a "55-point Inspection". So, not sure what they could have missed. Thanks tons!
