16 Sep The Metro Session: 2007 R8 Gibson Les Paul Standard “Chambered”

So much for vintage LPs! Chambered Les Pauls sound pretty good in my humble. This one here has nothing special, I just purchased it randomly.

I changed both pickups to TimBuckers though, and did ’50s wiring. Bridge is TonePros.

This is also the guitar that I used with Jaiminho Pagina collaboration here.

    I tried an Les Paul Traditional (HC Burst), it had been PLEK’d and all that stuff a while ago.. And i love it, but also hate it.. It made my current guitar feel and sound like a joke in compare… It simply felt that perfect i allways wanted my guitar to feel like, no fret buzz, nothing.. just perfect sound when i tried it out, stock and brand new(not broken in or anything), i’am strongly thinking of changing guitar right now cause it felt (and sounded) so badass to play 😀

    I’am going for an VoS SG, if it turns out to not feel as good as i want, i’am gonna sell it or try to change it to another guitar with the same level of quality and feel 🙂

    Do you think these pickups comes close to the ones on your conversation one, and did you wire the guitar yourself?

    This guitar sounds like a monster!

      L’ho girato Lory, devo solo editarlo e pubblicarlo. Non so se ti piacerà, ma c’è e sarà pubblicato oggi o domani. Ora ne sto “tirando su” un altro, online tra poco. Baci ed auguri, Fil

    Awesome amp, I’m considering getting one. What volume were you one btw?

      Write George and let him know, ask him. I think he also has them in “kit” form, to assemble yourself. Those are half the price! Around 1k USD.
      Amp was at 8-ish high treble volume; Treble 10, mids 10, bass 3-8 (can’t remember exactly; used to bring it up with SGs and down with LPs). presence 0 and only at 10 when playing the “woman tone” with tone pot closed. normal volume usually at 0 (there’s one high treble volume and one normal volume).

        Cheers, I’m still deciding which amp to get, I’m considering getting the metro (cos they’re awesome), a Marshall 1978 JMP50 or a 50 watt vintage modern because they have master volumes which is usefull.

          i just got myself an Orange Tiny Terror. Little Rocker, it sounds like a jtm45 (a little Plexi if you like) perfect for anything pre80s and after 90s (AC/DC). I didnt try Flick of the Switch and so on with it. But im flashed, maybe ill do a little video, since i think Oranges are the better Marshalls today. Oranges still sound like 70s RockNRoll Roar while the reissued Marshalls seem to have lost a bit of their Tone Quallitys in the past years. AND The orange has a seperated Volume / Gain Kontroll, if you like it vintage you simply crank the Volume and set the Gain to match your Guitar & Amp era you want to get. Im in love with this little “Joke” 😀

    Fil- that is just a MONSTER tone!! I have a chambered LP as well and think that this combo of the Metro & LP is as good as it gets!! I must consider calling George about getting one of my own!!

      Ain’t it Khan? So much for vintage. I mean, naturally vintage sounds… vintage, but these newer ones, properly setup (this one has also been PLEK’d, which I recommend), MAYBE some boutique pickups and a few more things and the guitar sings. Meh!
