  1. Hello all from Frankonia! I bought a used Les Paul Standard 2015 in wine red candy and excellent condition, as I think. See picture below. But when I compare the color of the fretboard to pictures of the guitar from the old Gibson website it looks like the fretboard is too bright. Is that a sign that oiling is needed? Or is the color totally OK and the old picture not correct color-wise? I would like it a little darker, though. Best, Adrian
  2. 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!
  3. I have a Yamaha FS100C acoustic guitar.In website it says Fingerboard Radius: R400mm (15 3/4") what does it mean I can't understand as I am a beginner.I want to get a capo for it, so i want to know if it has a flat fretboard/fingerboard or radiused fretboard/fingerboard.I bought Daddario NS Artist Capo but D string buzzes a lot even if capo tension is increased somewhat (standard tunning).To check capo pressure i am picking strings downwards just exactly as how we do when tuning a guitar and D string buzzes a lot.I don't want to keep high tension on the strings by tightening the capo a lot as it would defeat the purpose of getting an somewhat expensive capo with screw adjustment for tension too.I am using Gibson light 11 - 52 gauge strings on the guitar after i tried to make the capo work with a little tension adjustment in the screw had no luck, and strings got out of tune after some trials.I have been looking in between NS Artist Capo & Tri-Action Capo from Daddario. Please help, I can return NS Artist Capo and get Tri-Action Capo if its more appropriate for acoustic guitars and for my Yamaha FS100C.Thanks
