Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
AFAIK, Kluson is Gibson's vendor for ABR1 bridges, aluminum stop tails and studs. Faber tp and studs are vg and I have their steel stud screws on several of my Gibsons. I did replace some Historic non-steel studs and pot-metal tp's with Kluson's KLP-1143N aluminum tp and steel studs. Huge diff imo.
