I've been trying to sell this guitar for the past couple years. The neck profile is a bit awkward for my hand compared to my Tyler and my Tele, so I don't play it very often.

Anyway a guitar instructor Jeff McErlain was posting pics of nice LPs the other day so I thought I'd break open mine for the Sunday service.

I forgot what a rock machine it is with the Bare Knuckle Emeralds in it. I could coax musical feedback, pinch harmonics with ease. It didn't do the delicate stuff my single coil guitars do as well but I had fun with it.

I'm going to spend more time adjusting and making friends with the neck and see if it stays. This is the 3rd time I've taken it down from a website for selling.

It looks beautiful! Do you have the same problem with other Les Pauls?

I've not tried others to be honest. I think just being much more familiar with 25.5 scale and Tele and Strat neck profiles is the issue. I think this has more of a shoulder than I'm used to.

I think I mentioned it before but if I was in the UK, I would have relieved you of it a long time ago. That's a cool axe!

Yeah you did, and it is a great guitar looks great and sounds awesome.
I think that after this much time for it to be up for sale I should take it as a sign that it wants to stay.

Maybe I'll get a new nut and set up for it as an apology and play the snot out of it to get used to it.

I remember you mentioning about selling that guitar before.

It definitly has the looks smile.gif but sound i so personal I cannot comment much as you know best for what you like. Did you install parallel wiring option with a push-pull pot? if you're looking to get more delecate feeling, parallel works great for humbuckers.

Splitting is also on option but for PAF related tones to me parallel works better as its too much to expect such a guitar to sound like a strat or tele, simply not in its dna.

As you can probably guess now that I'm having 2nd thoughts about selling the guitar, I have two people interested in it.

The guitars I am thinking about to get to replace it are

Charvel San Times style 2 FR
Basically a double Humbucker Tele with Floyd rose and split coil options.
PRS SE Floyd Custom 24
And for more money the Ibanez RG655

Of course I'll be lucky to get any of these in my hands before buying.
