I’d stay away from the steel wool. Use the Scotchbrite.
A little more work but that will get the job done.
How many times I've said the same thing...
I love a long hunt that ends well!! She's a sweet ax and sounds like a keeper for sure!!
Happening guitar! congrats
That is a rad guitar.
Love those! Like a singlecut Casino!
thank you sir.
1. Im just looking for a typical jazz box tone. Warm, airy, but not too fat (i dont like humbuckers), but enough growl when pushed.
this is how it sounds
2. I only have one amp, and its a Peavey Classic 30. Its a very middy amp, but its perfect for bluesy fat tones when pushed and the cleans are also nice and unique on its own.
i came from a blues background, but i play in church, doing modern church music.
thank you sir. And yes! Single Cut Casino
exactly my point.
the store near can get them but im required to pay a 30% deposit as they dont have them in stock and id need to talk to the manager if, lets say, i didnt like it and I want my deposit back. They say it may or may not be refundable
me too sir. Gibson got it right. Hahaha
That is a great looking guitar!! Love the color and design and pickups. Play it in rockin’ good health.
And yay The Florentine Club - here’s my ES-140:
Nice!! that looks like a Les paul size hollow? How does it sound?
Les Paul sized body. ES-175 depth. Byrdland/GS-Mini scale. So it’s a GS-175
Does everything - T-Bone Walker, Grant Green, up through Thorogood and Ron Wood / Faces era. Very yay.
My first ever minor fret work polish..
There are some fret wear on the first few frets, but nothing deep..
The tarnish is so hard, scotch brite didnt work.. its not removing anything so had to use steel wool
Before and after!
then a little bit of Australian Orange Oil Wood conditioner
I really love my Gibson ES-137 Custom.
I also had a chance on getting one of these, I tried the blue burst I had access to and they’re really good, even if Im not a fan of Humbuckers.
but buying something Im on the fence with in terms of pickups, is unwise for me. I really want the dog ears P90s. Including the aesthetic of it. And also the price is triple of what I paid for the Sorrento.
Ah thats cool, HNGD!
Initial set up done.. Still waiting for the neck to react/move to the higher tension of 11s.. So I didnt touch the truss rod at the moment..
Feels pretty good under the fingers.. as expected, narrow string spacing.. I think I'll let my luthier tweak that to Fender-ish specs.. My telecasters' frets have been professionally levelled, and I was able to set it up in the same action as my Telecasters.. pretty amazing and no fret buzz!
although I'm concerned about the height of the frets.. Frets 1,2,3 and 4 have varying degrees of fret wear/indentation.. Im sure it has not been touched at all, so hopefully there's enough height left when my luthier levels it.
I also reversed that G string-saddle.. ALL 24.75 scale guitars I have encountered that has this stock bridge is problematic with 11 gauge strings.. and this is always my solution.. I'm planning to replace this bridge with a Gotoh that has an extended range.. OR probably take out the studs, fill it with a dowel and run with a floating bridge ala ES-125TDC.. not sure yet on what to decide on, but definitely gonna replace the hardware with better ones.. those tuners arent nice!
Anyway, very happy how it all turned out.. This is definitely what I have been looking for in an affordable price, with decent quality and solidly built hollowbody with P90s and Florentine Cutaway!
