• 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!

Greatest thing you can do to improve your tone

On a scale of 1-10...
a) RS pots = 8
b) Lightweight Tailpiece + locking studs = 4 (But a 9+ in sustain!)
c) Fresh Strings = 5
d) Thinner pick = 4
f) Amp Position = 6 (Get those combos off the floor)
g) Practice with the amp pointed right at your face, at a sane volume = 10

e)? What happened to e)? :wah I guess that would be the magnets :biggrin:

I put a pair of long magnets in a pair of WB 67-07s and it was completely off the hook! I was plugged into my buddy's amp and he had this stunned look on his face...he'd never heard his amp make those kinds of sounds! LOL.
