Gibson Les Paul Korina Goldtop 1957 Reissue – Pics

Gibson Les Paul Korina Goldtop 1957 Reissue

So, as requested in another post’s comment section, here are some more pics of my 2009 Gibson Custom Shop  Les Paul Korina 1957 Reissue.  I decided to take it to my studio since I thought it would look good against the aged hardwood floors.

String Theory

Guitar String

I’ve always wondered if I could really tell the difference in sound between two sets of strings of the same gauge on the same guitar. So when I took my new Gibson Les Paul Goltop over to San Francisco Guitarworks to get a proper setup I also had them put on a new set of strings (I could have done it myself, but I was feeling lazy and they were working on my guitar anyway).

But, before taking the Les Paul into the shop I did a quick recording on the current strings so I could compare them to the new strings once I got my guitar back.

Keeley Fuzz Head – Quick Review

Fuzz Head

As I posted last week, I went out and tested a EHX Big Muff Pie and a Analogman Sunface NKT 275. The one fuzz box I wanted to try but didn’t because nobody had one available locally was the Keeley Fuzz Head. When I was listening to samples of fuzz boxes, the Keeley was actually my favorite out of them all. But obviously you can’t tell anything about how somethings really going to sound off of a YouTube video. Even trying them out in the store only gives you a little idea of how it will work for you. It’s not until you get things home and use it with your gear that you’ll really know how you’ll like it.

It Might Get Loud Release Dates

It Might Get Loud

I’m pretty sure I don’t need to tell you about It Might Get Loud, but I’m pretty excited to see the release dates that were recently announced. Unfortunately I don’t live in New York or Los Angeles, who get it next Friday… but at least San Francisco gets it a little bit sooner than other places. I know where I’ll be August 28th.

EHX Big Muff Pi vs Analogman Sun Face NKT 275

Big Muff Pi vs SunFace

After Effects Bay’s post yesterday I wrote about being inspired to check out the EHX Big Muff Pie fuzz box.  Well, today I went down to Haight Ashbury Music Center to give it a try along with an Analogman Sun Face NKT 275.  I did some research last night on various fuzz effects and after hours of watching YouTube videos, I narrowed my selection down to the EHX Big Muff Pie w/ Wicker switch, the Analogman Sun Face NKT 275, and the Keeley Fuzz Head.  The only one I couldn’t test today was the Keeley Fuzz Head as they were out of stock.
