Had my Chibson a couple of weeks now. It's a much nicer instrument than expected.
I'd have played it a lot more but things like getting married sort of prevent that :)
I swapped the strings to some super slinkys but ever since then quite a lot of buzzing from the strings. Can't seem to stop it. But it's not effecting my playing. Am going to get it set up by a tech soon but not sure to replace the bridge or not. I already will get him to replace the nut, pots and pickups and they will check the frets. So I was thinking is it worth to buy a new bridge. I have the converter pins for a abr1 bridge. But if there are better ideas please let me know. Really not keen on this notching stuff.
It might end up cheaper if I had bought a real les paul!
I am not confident to try the jobs myself.
One last thing on the chibson front the tuners seem decent apart for one that's a bit loose. If I get some real version of the same tuners should they fit the holes ok? I don't want to drill it at all!
That advise I have a squier telecaster laying around. I want to put some new pickups on it myself. Any ideas for a decent set of pickups but not too pricey (considering it's just for a squire) I am going for a classic tele sound. Any other ideas what I could do with it would be great too. Here is a pic of it
