    Ok, I know it's not a Gibson, but I'm trying to convince a buddy to sell me his AXL Badwater 1216.
    I've been reading up on them--it either has EMG designed AlNiCo lll humbuckers or Seymour Duncan Seth Lover PAFs. Set neck and yes a lot of copper-tuning machines, pickup covers, tele style knobs (I'm thinking of using steel wool to take the finish down a little, any recommendations?)

    Kinda cool with that Epi amp. :cool:

    Reminds me of a down south juke joint blues rig where money is a little short but the great music is endless.

    It was nice out today. No, I don't plan to straighten the tuning knob.

    I do love a nice Les Paul....

    Here's my 2016 Traditional T that I picked up in February. It's got a meaty neck, and some nice meaty tones to accompany!

    I'm not overly familiar with humbucker pickups, but I do like the tone I get out of the Classic 57's in it.

    Iggy's old stompin' grounds! Have never been further north (in the Midwest) than central Illinois (where I still have a lot of relatives), lived in Florida since the early '70's.

    I post, or did, on a bunch of guitar forums, so maybe you've seen me on one of those. :thumb:

    That looks a whole lot like mine. And you're right, the 57 Classics are great pickups. Right now I'd say they're my favorites

    '57 Classics are great, but... My Trad Pro has a Super '57 in the bridge that just adds a little more meat and keeps that sweet tone. IMG_20170621_143110.jpg
