• 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!

Congrats. Nice one. Enjoy in good health. 🍑

Considered a Bourbon/Brock, or a Factory? The color is hard to tell [for me] from the pics.

Guys, I love this guitar so much, but it won’t hold tune. I feel it’s complete sacrilege to change out the tuners to Grover Rotomatics, but I’ve always had good luck with them. Are they direct drop ins?

Like corpse says, provided you're stringing it properly, it's 99% likely to be a poorly cut nut, for which Gibson has a reputation of doing--even with Custom Shop models. Replace the nut with a quality bone nut and it will be rock solid.

Thanks guys!! I’ll have a bone nut installed and fingers crossed it works. These are new strings that were properly stretched, so that can’t be the issue.

Sand the sides of the slots slightly with some Emory cloth. Just 3-5 passes on each side (not the bottom).
