Hello @ Rudy

I do indeed appreciate your continued support. No patent as a simple change to a couple values is enough to defeat a patent.

This sounds totally monstrous (in a good way)!

Wish more high gain amps took a leaf from your book

Hello @Rudy v

Great question.

The Black Custom is from 1989. It came stock with the Bill Lawrence HB-R & HB-L PCB pickups which are fine for Jazz but very microphonic for high gain nerds like me.

So I gutted it placing all of the original electronics in a 1 gallon ziplock then in its case. I set it up like my Standard I modded.

I have a thing about original single conductor wire Gibson pickups vs the post production coil tap variant. Could be psychological lol. I installed a stock set of gold covered 498-T (14+kHz) & 490-R (9+kHz). I replaced all pots with 500k, used NOS single conductor braided wire then used .022uf Sprague 715 OD caps in the 1950’s configuration.

Sounds more focused than my standard due to the Ebony finger board.

My 1980 stock Les Paul Custom (3 piece maple neck) with I believe first year Tim Shaw pickups (each measures 7.5kHz) & 300k volume pots & 100k tone pots is even more focused.

All three Les Paul’s sound unique. The Standard has the 1960’s slim neck & the Customs are a bit larger but very comfortable. I can’t bond with the 1950’s neck. R7 especially. R8 was better & I understand the R9 was even more slim.

I wanted no reissue axes & solid colors. Now a Gold Top Standard then maybe an old Teaburst Custom.

Very beautiful axe’s my friend. Great looking stacks as well. Thanks for sharing. I keep a couple extra 498-T’s on hand myself.
