  5. Bathroom scales 7 1/2 lb , nice for an old man like me , centerline join on Mahogany body . Dont know if its a Thunderbird pickup or not ( looks about the same size ) Fingerboard was really dry when I got it , used plenty of Leamon Oil . Frets still need polishing I have set it with a highish action ( as I like ) , and I have still got to find out what difference the push / pull pot makes on the overall sound . Bedroom level is not a true test . Got to wait now till our guitarists fingertip has healed to start gigging again ( cut most of it off on a guillotine at his works ). A Gator Les Paul delux case is on order , after a lot of research on internet , which came up with this case as the best fit . Slight neck dive , but have got used to playing with my 1997 Epiphone Rivoli which has neck dive , so no problem there . Will get a few more pics up later . Pete
  6. Just got a Gibson Les Paul DC from Bax . At the price they were throwing them out , l could not resist (£575) Always fancied one . I see they have gone back up to £800 ish now . Some small quality issues 1) end of fingerboard not stained correctly - patchy 2) scratchplate screws going in at an angle 3)small "ding" on back of neck . Could have sent back , but at this price l was expecting some quality issues . Plays and sounds BEAUTIFUL . Pics to follow
  7. To get over the gap at the bottom of pickup to body , when the pickup was raised , l put some black modelling putty ( milliputy l think it was ) around the resin coils , and sanded back to make the pickup cover look deeper . Looks ok to me . Going to put the parallel , series switch in and remove the choke connections next . Pete
  8. Just put my 1997 Rivoli ( no scratchplate ) on the bathroom scales............9lb 13oz ! I`ve gigged it a few times , does not seem too heavy ! Gap of pickup poles to bottom of strings E and G held down at last fret .........E = 5mm.....G = 4mm Pete
  9. Hi Jus Lukin , I have a 1997 Rivoli that weighs a ton , made in the Peerless factory , same pickup , coils in parallel but with the choke and different capacitors . Can I ask what height the pickup is - the gap between the top of the poles to the bottom of the G and E strings when held down at the last fret . I have found a great difference in Tone and volume by having the pickup near / far away from strings . I`m working on a bass cut control pot , to try and "tame" the series boom at the moment . Pete
  10. At the moment I play through my Helix stomp into my Messa D800 ( set flat ) into two Markbass 2x10 cabs . I am looking at going through my Helix stomp , into a full range powered speaker (lightweight) Any suggestions ? Pete
  11. Hi, I have put a DiMarzio Model One on my 1997 Rivoli . Coils in series , far too "boomy" , but wired in parallel , it is a bit lower output , and has more clarity . I also removed the .02 capacitor from the from the choke , and replaced it with a .100 , and replaced the tone cap ( dont know what it was ) with a .047 . Now that is some improvemet , more to my taste . I use D`Addario Nickel Wound 50 70 85 105 (EXL160S) Sounds great in a Stones Tribute Band . Pete
  12. Eden Ext112 for sale , in as new condition . Used for a couple of acoustic rehearsals , and as a bedroom practice cab . 300W at 8ohms , back top handle , one man lift . Meet anywhere around Coventry M6 , or you arrange courier at your expense and risk ( I have got original packaging ) Pete
  13. Hi, Just got Rivoli back from my local luthier , neck heel crack repaired , you can see it but not feel it . Just noticed , the pickup routing on this one is the size of the pickup, so the whole pickup drops inside the routing ...... very strange , my old one had the routing done for the pickup chrome flange to sit on the surface. Anyhow, I have far more adjustment in height on this one.
