    I agree!

    and I thought we might get Iceman'd on the pics! HA!!!


    definitely nickel. I'm indifferent as tyo the Grovers or Schallers. Whole Lotta Humbucker is an excellent choice! Might as well go all the way and do Page switching too.

    awesome looking guitar, by the way! Congrats!!!!

    Don't worry about Grovers OR Schallers until you get it back with that new nut. Also try something like Big Bends nut sauce on the slots. Odds are, the problem doesn't/didn't lie with the tuners, but the nut slots.

    anything you can't do on a Les Paul is because you haven't practiced enough or you don't rock hard enough.

    I had one of those. Great guitar! I was lucky that mine had already had the pups swapped (59b/Jazzn) so I don't really know what the stockers sound like. I wasn't a fan of the 59b. I tried a USA L500L (not XL). It was a bad choice. That's all I can offer lol.

    Oh-and it didn't stay in tune that well because of the cheap nut with poorly cut slots, not the tuners. They're perfectly functional.

    Nice looking guitar, man. All you have to do now is take off that ****ing scratchplate.

    Agreed. It's a shame to hide such a pretty top under a piece of flesh-colored plastic. LPCs and plaintops need guards, imho. Pretty flames like that don't!

    Well been playing with my new muse.......outstanding, outstanding guitar. Plays better than a lot of Les Paul's I've played...not all but a lot. The Whole Lotta Humbuckers are JUST STELLA..I'll try and get some audio posted over the weeken.

    Had the new bone nut fitted as I said...seemed like a sensible thing to do.

    Flat I had the EMAP and phase push/pull pots and wiring done.....now just going to enjoy
