    T-tops back in LP custom and swapping pickups in a 03 LP standard LE

    Got it, so are the t tops not hot enough for you in the custom, is that why you are thinking of swapping them?

    Hair Metal fans, what's your favorite amp?

    Even without the bright cap, it’s bright enough. With the bright cap it’s plenty bright. Mine has a switch to switch the bright cap out, this was on a push pull pot and for the longest time, I didn’t even know that knob pulled. It’s an extra volume knob for the clean mode. I now run it with...

    T-tops back in LP custom and swapping pickups in a 03 LP standard LE

    I had aldrich pickups in the 73 custom in the past and they were just too hot in that guitar. They sound much sweeter in the 03 standard, but as my tastes are changing, not as sweet as what I heard in this R8. I didn’t have the $4k plus to drop on that guitar, so as I am doing recently making...

    T-tops back in LP custom and swapping pickups in a 03 LP standard LE

    I thought yours had the Shaw paf pickups, or is that just what is in there now? I am thinking the lower output t tops is the way I want to go. I got a tele earlier this year and after some adjustment really loving it’s lower output and clarity. On the 03 standard, I do have the covers off...

    T-tops back in LP custom and swapping pickups in a 03 LP standard LE

    Inspired by @glpg80 and his killer 76 lp custom, I am considering a pickup change in my Les Pauls. The 73 LP custom I have black top suhr thornbuckers with the option for series/parallel on the push pull tone pots. Love the pickups in this guitar, it always sounds thick and mean. Learned long...

    G12H30 Anniversary are my new favorite speaker

    The G12H30 anniversary speakers are good speakers, but like others have said the top end can be a bit bitey or strident. Like most things, might be what you want in a band mix. I sold the last pair I have for a scumback scumnico/H75 mix and really liked the change. Still plenty of highs, but...

    Hair Metal fans, what's your favorite amp?

    My first thought was the silver jubilee as well, but I would agree that I would give the nod to the slo over the jubilee.

    Soldano Slo 100 Plexi tones vid!

    Sounds great, but doesn’t really remind me of a plexi. I have run my plexi Kingsley preamp next to my Soldano hr25 and the difference is pretty apparent. Still I love what the Soldano brings to the table.

    Bogner Blue Pedal

    Mainly heard of noise issues with the bogner red, but thankfully mine is quiet. Got my bogner red back in like 2013 and still have it, just doesn’t get used as much as it should. One day I will dial in a great sound, then the next time I use it I find I have to tweak a good deal.

    Wow.. people are just getting nuttier..

    So what I learned is that I just need to call the dings in my guitar relicing when I sell it. :)

    NGD!!!!!!! 1976 Norlin Les Paul Custom 😎

    Cool short clip, t tops had that classic 70s hard rock and metal sound, emgs sounded more modern. Both cool, but t tops is what I preferred. I should have probably give them more time on my 73 lp custom, but am happy with the Suhr thornbuckers I have in there now.

    Anybody tried the TAD EL84S-STR Blackplates?

    Really had to find the Russian 6P14P tubes at this point. I think dr Z bought them all up. They are good tubes, just hard to find at this point. I would assume any new Tads are made by jj or new sensor, but they are not very forth coming about that.
