    See if you can guess the guitar I'm noodling on in this clip.

    ;)

    I'll post up the answer later on tonight!



    Scroll down for the answer in this post.
























    The answer is: Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Pro

    The reason for me posting this video was because the sound of the guitar completely fooled me into thinking it was a Tele. I recently changed out the stock '57 Classic and BB3 for a Seymour Duncan Jazz/JB combo and coil tapped them. The video was recorded with the JB split to a single coil, into a Keeley 2 knob compressor and straight into an AC30 w/ Wharfdales and some reverb. The SD Jazz pickup split gives some beautiful Strat tones and both buckers full on are a hard rocker's heaven.

    Folks can usually guess what this is sorta like by the first tone, which is neck pickup only with the crap jazz attempt, but when i switch to the middle position they're like "huh? you can get chime like that with THAT guitar?" well with this '52 Princeton amp, yep. Plugged direct right in there.





    A 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom with stock pickups. T-tops? Stock everything, including wiring, no split pickups or reverse wound series/parallel out of phase whatever. Probably could have gotten cleaner if I used a pick too, but it was "all hands" baby!
