The Lespaul-o-caster

Recommended Posts

Hello! 

It's been a while since I posted here... 

A recent addition to my collection is this '18 Deluxe Player Plus, I have modded with a Fender Texas Special pickup at the bridge. Blasphemous, but sounds brilliant.i-4GLvgX7-X3.jpg

i wasnt expecting that sound! sounds awesome, thought it would be thin, but nothing like that

Really liked it, guitar looks beautiful in the video 😎

Weirdly, it still sounds more like a Les Paul than the donor Stratocaster... ("tonewoods do not exist" - some say...)

I like it's satin look too. It feels somewhat better than a gloss-finished Les Paul.

Tributes are great! I have a first year (2010) 50s Tribute. It's such a great-sounding guitar.

....and I see you've gone wireless...:-k

Indeed! And can’t be happier! No more soldering jack plugs back. For a hobby player, like me, it’s a relief.

Doesn’t sound like strat to me.... But great playing  and a nice looking axe. 

Thanks Duane!

Funny isn’t it? That pickup came out from my ‘13 Am Special Strat, and sounds completely different in the Les Paul. Some say, the sound comes from pickups alone... they are wrong.

That’s how it was done. All it takes is a modified P90s cover, and two screws with locking nuts.

To me it has that Barry Goudreau Boston tone.... which is an SG type tone 

 

Interesting. To me it sounds brighter than the SG.

Hello G Mac.

Thank You, and Happy New Year to You too!

To be honest, I rarely play clean, so I don't have records of that. Mostly, I play through a Tube Screamer, or via a Plexi emulation with Bottom Booster.

Yes! i used to have a 2013 50's tribute in vintage sunburst, had a very dark sound, i sold it because neck was big for my hands and i wanted to upgrade. But  i wont be selling my tribute!
