Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
there are a few guitars around with HSS configuration but with the humbucker rotated, ie. not parallel with the bridge (some EVH and other similar models).
What's the theory behind this please ?
I've just bought a nice sounding JCM900 with purple tolex and a light grill cloth (instead of black)
Can anyone advise if this was some sort of limited edition, or just a colour option please ?
When installing a humbucker in place of a single coil, is there a "magic" or "sweet spot" for placement.
I have read that a 24 fret neck is more conducive to pickup placement for capturing subtle overtones etc. (proabably from PRS blurb) but what about 21 or 22 frets ?
Just watched a youtube video from 2017 where Phil Harris busrts and he mentioned a couple of things:
1958 has a shallower neck angle than a '59
1960 has a higher bridge than a '59
I've seen a lot of discussions identifying / authentication of 'bursts here but never seen these attributes...
