An Epiphone Les Paul with some switching issues. Turned out that the contacts in the 3 way toggle switch needed to be re-tensioned so they signal would not cut out when using. Easy fix once you figure out what's going on.

A local player wasn't digging these mini humbuckers and wanted to install full size humbuckers in his Gibson 1970's Tribute Les Paul Studio. This involves enlarging both pickup cavities with a router. I used a straightedge to guide my cuts.
Next is installing corner blocks in order to mount the pickup rings.
The player supplied a Gibson PAF for the neck and a WCR Icebreaker for the bridge. New cream pickup rings were fit to the top before the pickups could be mounted. Making the solder connections at the pots finished off the mini to full size humbucker conversion.
A bolt on Epi Les Paul with a few high frets in for a setup. After addressing the problematic frets, the rest of the setup was fairly straightforward. But a bolt on Les Paul just feels wrong ...
A beautiful gold top Les Paul Classic in for a good pot cleaning. Scratchiness be gone!
A pretty 1960 reissue Les Paul in for a setup and broken tuner knob. Gibson Deluxe tuners are a fairly delicate tuner when compared to others. A common issue is that the rear covers can become loose over time. These tuners were fairly tight but the D string tuning knob was failing from a previous repair. The knob was cracked and glued by the player, but the glue had begun to fail. In the video below from the vlog, I was able to open up the knob and work some super glue into the break before clamping it closed.
