2001 Gibson les Paul Standard in Honey burst
Just to get things started I wanted to share a guitar I bought a few months back. my 2001 Gibson les Paul Standard in Honey burst.
It’s been a busy for months at CGL. In the past few months I have moved house as well as welcomed my second daughter into the world!
Along with this lessons have been very busy and I have been booked up with function gigs now that the wedding season is in full swing hence very little on the posting front.
I have just had the original pickups removed and replaced with Bareknuckle mule pickups that are supposed to be a very close representation of the early PAF pickups used in Les Pauls, the other great thing about these pickups is that they were made in Cornwall! I had the pickups installed by Julyan Wallis AKA ‘The guitar doctor’, he also fitted 2 x 500k push-push pots allowing the humbuckers to be split, a new swichcraft output jack and WD oil and paper capacitors for the tone pots. It really is a beast and is like a new guitar with a beautiful vintage voice.
I post a video over the next couple of weeks showcasing the changes.
