    Hi ,

    1 piece neck, 1 piece body with short neck tenon, 300k linear pots and small ceramic caps, Nashville pots. Not my favourite combo.

    But workmanship on these is usually excellent.
    My diagnosis is: Hiwatt and Norlinphilia

    Hi Progrocker111, thanks for your information ! So this model being a reissue of the 1957 is not totally equal, because it doesn't have the same pots and a long tenon ? Greetings, akkermanfan

    There are different years as well variations of the LPC. The regular LPC from say the 57's and 68's for example will have a different take as to the above you have mentioned.
    You will have a hay day searching and learning from this forum what it's all about.
    The search tabs above will keep you reading until your eyes turn blue hehe! Lots of good reads, unless you come across a member here that has all the model or have played them.

    I've the LPC from 2007 but it's not the 57 or 68 nor have the 3 pups config. Although I don't mind getting a 68 one day soon yeah!
    Old WOOD Is Good WOOD !!!

    A 1991 Custom is nothing like the 57, nor the reissue......if you're talking specs.
    Different tenon
    Different top wood
    Different pickups
    Different electronics
    Different bridge and tailpiece (construction)
    Weight relieved body
    Different headstock shape/logo

    Closer to the 68 as has been mentioned.

    Even the reissues until 1995 still had short tenon and cheap 300k pots and small ceramic caps. Custom Shop makes them much better now.
