    Anyone out there a fan of the traditional 50’s wiring? Or upgrades tone wise?

    I’ve heard it sounds amazing 50’s wiring but I’ve been to scared to open up the back of my beautiful gibson… I was even nervous putting locking strap buttons on her!! Although I’m considering getting a tone pro.. It’s just a matter of when ;) what do you use?

    I use a nickel bridge from Germany but I would recommend you change your standard 300K volume and tone pots to the 550K ones it will change your sound and control a lot.

    Got pretty much everything from Bare knuckle pickups or Thomann online. BKP also do 10 packs of 10 gauge all nickel Rotosound strings for 30 pounds which is good value.
