    I agree on the needs for these but a good friend that plays in a jazz band frequently rolls off the neck pickup tone and adjusts the bridge pickup tone just a little to have his favorite 1,2,3 sounds just from the toggle switch.

    It's heartening to read reports of Gibson QA seemingly now able to their job properly so that customers can enjoy these fabulous guitars without all that disappointment that careless testing and set up reputation that Gibson had earned itself in recent years.
    Playability with regard to neck profiles is always a matter of personal taste I suppose so I hope you find that your LP, although not what you're perhaps used to, does however endear the guitar to you sufficiently to make it a keeper. If not I've no doubt you'll return it from whence it came!

    Well, I've slept on it, and it's going back. The vintage skinny frets and fat neck are an issue for my tiny paws. Shame, but I didn't wake up delighted that it was in the stable. The cold light of day showed up a couple of production issues too.

    Oh well, still got my sparkle jet to keep me company. It's almost finished sulking now.

    That's a shame Unka D. Another one will be along.

    My former LP Jr's bridge sounds nothing like the T-Armond in my Pro Jet. The LP's pu sounds too thin. I blamed it on the 9's I use until I got the T-Armond put into my Pro Jet, also with 9's. Neither pickup is bright, so I turn up the treble on my amp. With my former LP, turning up the treble made the guitar sound harsh. With the Pro Jet, turning up the treble hit the spot. Muscular. Authoritative.

    U.D. good call to move it along if it didn't totally rock your world. Guitars are SUPPOSED to totally rock your world, or step aside to make room for one that DOES! I'm wondering just what will be next for you?

    P.S. I've returned some VERY nice guitars for fairly minor reasons... but you know when a guitar is just right for you and when it isn't quite the one.

    I need this guitar. Love it love it love it. Hope you bond well with her but if you don't...

    Had a black Gib LP slab years ago w/P-100's I swapped out for good Gib P-90's. Not a real quality neck and just a slab mahogany, bit beat up, but dang those P-90's rock my boat...and I don't have any.
