Hi! It's my first post on this forum after completing google, searching for my issue. I bought the Les Paul Deluxe Player 2018 Satin Vintage Sunburst with mini-humbuckers last year and it's an awesome guitar. Last week I encountered some weird static noise during a gig when I moved around on stage. When I rubbed the guitar against my body (walking) or when I touch the back of the body (more noticeably when I brush my hand across the plastic cover for the volume and tone controls) I get this weird static/scratchy noise. The static sounds like a broken cable crackling, but I've tested with different cables and with the plastic cover off. Noise is still there. I've tested brushing my hand over the back of the guitar and the static noise can only be heard where the electronics are. There's no static noise from the front of body. I've looked inside the cavity for volume and tone and everything looks good, no bad wiring or anything that seems out of place. I also checked the jack input and here everything seems to be okay. Volume and tone pots are placed on a print card. 1. Have you encountered this before? 2. Do anyone have a fix for this? I'm don't have the best guitar tech knowledge, so if you reply I hope you cold keep it "simple-stupid". Here's a link to youtube to see for yourself: Youtube video *not that fluent in English, so if you need me to elaborate I'll do my best.
Hi all, I got a crack in the neck of my Epiphone SG right next to the body, see photos. I tried removing the neck but I'm not sure I can (see third photo) and don't want to force it and make things worse. How would you suggest fixing this? Is it possible to remove the neck, apply some wood glue and let dry? Would it be better not to remove the neck at all? It looks like the truss rod doesn't go all the way into the body but I can't be sure. Thanks!
Hey folks; I have an SG ‘61 Reissue that I was fortunate enough to have signed by Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. To make a long, sad story short, my old college roommate kicked it over while on a stand. It cracked the finish on the body right below the tone knobs and around the side and back (he caught it before it toppled over and hit the neck or headstock on the floor). This happened about 4 years ago, and I just recently noticed some small cracks in the finish where the cream binding goes down the fretboard on the neck. So, it’s time to bite the bullet and have it fixed. My question to anyone who has had experience with this: how much do you think Gibson will charge to fix these cracks? The pictures show the damage on the body and now the neck... as well as one of Derek’s signature 😛
