NGD: Historic R4

Buc McMaster

Recommended Posts

To maximize the difference between my two instruments, I traded my Custom Shop '57 Stratocaster for this little screamer..............a Custom Shop Historic Les Paul R4, a great tonal contrast with my Custom Shop '55 Telecaster.  There were two in the store and after manhandling both for an hour or so I chose this one.  I really like a wraparound tailpiece on a Gibson guitar.......simple, effective.  Intonation is good but I may change it to a MojoAxe compensated version.  At first blush the P90s were very, very mid-heavy but after some time wrangling with the amp and guitar settings it sounds quite good.  Considering changing the pickups though to something of lower output.........lower output allows for more tone tweaking than a hot wind.
