OT...I know there are guitar guys here (Les Paul question)
Hey guys...just looking for advice. I bought a used Gibson Les Paul Standard. NOT an Epi...
I've played lots of acoustic guitars over the years...but this electric deal has me stumped.
I want to take it in to get it repaired...but don't want to get ripped off.
It is very hard to tune...even with good strings that are broke in.
A couple of the strings buzz like crazy when under power. They don't do it with the amp turned off...but I'm hard of hearing and can't tell if the tune is right.
The bass string(top) just THUNDERS!!!! Maybe something to adjust in the pick up?
BTW...it has Seymore Duncan pick ups on it...don't know if they are ok or not.
It won't stay in tune well...I'm thinking the tuner gears may be worn and slipping?
The bottom tone control doesn't work...maybe needs a new one???
I really like this guitar...but it sounds kinda crappy. I have a pretty good quality new Traynor tube amp for it...12".
Any advice would be appreciated!
I have tools I don't even know I own...
