Video tip: Fixing a Chinese Ace Frehley Les Paul (1997 model)

Ever seen one of those cheap Chibsons (China Gibson copy) and been tempted to buy one? Don’t. Have a look at this video to see what it takes fix one to a playable state instead. Well, even if you haven’t considered buying one it’s still worth watching. Actually it’s three videos but you know more is more. Cus Yngwie said so.

Gibson 2019 Explorer Tribute – Test & Review

Gibson 2019 Explorer Tribute – Test & Review
Guitar Review by Have Guitar

Heeeeello Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019! Yeah, I know… Gibson isn’t what they used to be and the financial problems and quality issues with some years. Still, old habits die hard and I have been into Gibson way back. So far back it actually started when I was kid – many years before I even got a chance to pickup an electric guitar. For me, they just have a special place in my heart – but that doesn’t mean I can’t be critical when needed.

The original Explorer model has been one of my favourite models for a long time, I have played a few but the only one I actually bought was an Ibanez Destroyer (reissue of the original Destroyer). I had also promised myself not buy any more gear for good while ahead… and then came the Gibson 2019 lineup. Uhm. And Andertons had the Explorer Tribute in stock. Did you hear a breaking sound? Yup, that was my promise to myself that broke.

Well, there you have the some background to why I bought this guitar, unplayed and untested from the UK. The rest of the review and my rants are in the video – of course together with a good bunch of sound demos. Also see the index below for your convinience, if you wanna skip to some specific part of the video review.

Index:
00:38 – What’s in the case
02:54 – Specifications Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019
05:48 – Clean to Low gain sound demos
08:30 – Ramblings about the purchase
10:49 – Mid gain sound demos
13:30 – High gain sound demos
15:52 – Conclusion (yep, it’s long!)

If you think the conclusion is too long (and some people will think just that!) just read the below. Just warning you, this is a very compressed version of it:

Pros:
Cool looking guitar unless you like fancy stuff
Plays great
Sounds great
Quality is good, no dead frets or fret buzz
Great service from Andertons

Cons:
No fancy details if you’re into that
Extremely ugly softcase
No hardcase
Somewhat pricey for a Tribute model

Reading tip: p-90’s in Humbucker format

The search for the Holy Tone is not about reaching a goal, it’s just a life long compassion. I wasn’t even aware that you could have the P90 in the Humbucker size until a year ago or so… and well, tehnically you can’t. But you can get close to it and here’s a nice round up of just that from Premier Guitar:

Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019 – Unboxing

Gibson Explorer Tribute 2019 – Unboxing
A video by Have Guitar

Well, it has been awhile since I bought something new and I had kinda promised myself not to do it… and then came along the new 2019 line-up from Gibson and goodbye self control.

I do believe there are quite a few nice new models from Gibson but man… their prices has gone up! The previous Tribute models I have seen has been Les Pauls and in Sweden they have been sold for around 1000 USD. This tribute model has a list price from Gibson 1399 USD! And the High Performance series have increased as well.

But anyways, a Gibson Explorer has been on my “to-get-list” since long before I even started playing guitar and this Tribute 2019 just has a stylistically pure design that just spoke out to me. Makes it look raw and clean! Also the Dirty Finger+ pickups has some good rep around the Internets so here we go! This is only the unboxing video, although there is a small sound example included… a thorough review should be up around end October I hope.

And that’s it! Hope you will like this video and if you do – please do support my persistent crazyness by subscribing, it helps a lot! To all you subscribing already – you are the best and Thank You!
