This may (or may not) be of use to you..It won't hurt to take a little peek..
I always make it a p0int to check out every how to video's just to see if there is something of interests. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks a lot Papa Joe, it's actually really good!
Another good one imho (I suppose you all have already watched it , but just in case):
you vouch for it, eh fuhgeddaboudit, it's golden. You probably can do setups in your sleep now.
If its worth your time, its worth ours.
That Pedal Show - Ed O' Brien signature strat set up by Jonny Kinkead:
lol..Guess what..Crazy thing is, I did do guitar work in my sleep back when I was really heavy in to it..Same for tube amps..It would be so strong on my mind that I'd dream about it..
Ya know how dreams get all twisted and goofy..Once in a while I'd be able to recall most of the dream..It was usually good for a laugh..
Entertaining and informative.
Apparently i don't kn ow how to attach a video. Anyways, I actually setup my first L.P. following this video. One of the iconic Les Paul players, offering some pretty simple , yet effective advice on how he sets up his L.P.
This is the opposite order of Fender's setup directions. It is based on performance and not measurements, hence, I don't take any. It works because the neck is immobile between frets 17 and 22. The trussrod only affects lower frets. By setting the upper end first, you know any buzzes are coming from too little relief. This method works for most guitars, with trussrods.
Assuming no twisted neck or proud frets and a properly cut nut, with the guitar tuned to playing pitch (you should retune between each step) begin by setting the saddle height for frets 17-21(2) so that the strings play buzz free at the lowest possible height. I start with low E and work them in succession. (Lower the saddle until it buzzes, raise until clear.)If you bend notes up here, do some bends to make sure you don't fret out. When all strings are clean go to the lower frets and neck relief. Play the Low E string from fret 1 to fret 16, increasing relief (loosening trussrod) to relieve buzz or decreasing relief(tightening trussrod) to lower the string height, so tighten, by fractional turns, until it buzzes and back off until it doesn't. Go to the high E and do the same. Once high E rings clear check the others increase relief by tiny fractions if needed. do your usual bends and/or finger vibrato. Once you have acceptable relief, i.e. no buzz and easy action, set your intonation and you're done.
Thanks, that will be useful to a lot of people! Do you have the title and the source? That way anyone could find the video!
"Joe Walsh Les Paul setup full video" on Youtube..... Maybe someone with better computer skills than me "pretty much anyone" can post a link.
