    Studio Custom Tone Questions

    try a set of Pure nickle strings instead of those bright as hell Xls, then magnet swap to a sand cast A2 from the stock A5 . That will warm it up a bit.

    Ottawa luthier recommendation

    Rising tongue never really goes away. the neck jointed area swells and contracts as the weather changes, causing the rise. refret, replane the board, the chance of a returning rise is still there. Roll the dice, no guarantee.

    Even more Gibson fun.

    Henry ripped off many vendors, Schaller being one of them, Duncan another. Duncan was shipping pickups (Slash) COD at one time in fear of not being payed. Specs would change on the fly due to accounts un paid. Gotoh and Ping hardware in lew of Schaller.... there are others. More lawsuits on the table, the more it hurts. The name Gibson will be fine, Henry on the other hand, will not. yup,, a pie slice

    A couple of LP questions ...

    USA Plant guitar tail piece is making up the break angle. do not let the strings rest on the backside of the bridge, make sure there is at least a paper width of clearance between string and backside edge of bridge. that is why the tail piece is so "high".

    T-Top Pickups

    On T-Tops character? even low wind, T-Tops have this gritty chime to them when pushed, then a nice 3d harmonic clean tone when relaxed. My 72' LPC is stock, the Bridge T-Top is hotter than most, 8+ k, still very T-Top ish with a lil more growl to it. They, the guitar sounds amazing. Even potting, re potting them did not change anything about them. Bench mark.
