1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    And it's pretty. Lightweight (for a LP), frets look new, in fact the whole thing looks new. Neck is fairly chunky, definitely NOT a '60s profile. Gotta get a little touch-up paint to hide the holes where the pickguard screws went.

    I like it! I dressed my black studio up with some gold knobs and cream pu rings.

    Definitely Pretty! How old is it ?

    I've never owned a Les Paul but always loved the tones- and forgot how good they can sound clean .........

    I took it out to a jam last night and there are some adjustments needed, and ghod, I don't like the 490/498T combo at all, but my Seth Lovers are here and I'll install them on Saturday and start tweaking. My Ellis pups will be a while and I didn't want to have to live with the 490/498T set.

    It was fun to play and I enjoy the fact it doesn't weigh a ton, maybe a little more than my Strat but not a heavyweight.

    Nice on the Grovers IMO - I may be crazy but I think LPs sound a little better with Grovers compared to Klusons..........

    490/498's sound amazing with a good wiring kit. Should have given them a try. I've hated on the 490/498 for years.
