What you need is a complete set up as your truss rod is out of adjustment and bridge is too low. Your local guitar shop can help you out for around $50.

One of the best was to keeping your guitar in tune, is to also string it correctly and use new strings . Make sure the first winding of a new string around the tuner post goes over the exposed tip of the new string. The rest of the windings go under the exposed tip of the string. This will keep the string clamped firmly in place. Use 4-5 turns around the post for unwound strings, 2-3 for wound strings, in a downward spiral towards the bottom of the post as shown in the photo.-Tom, 30yr player.

You have a grounding problem. Verify your cable is good first, then open the guitar and look for broken wires. The electronic parts sit in a cavity that SHOULD be lined with CONDUCTIVE paint that acts as a shield and should have an electrical connection. You will likely find ground wires soldered to the back of the control pot cases. If you find a wire broken loose you have found the cause. There is usually a wire to the ground system from the metal parts.

I think that it is an 1981 the system works like this for certain ones but where it was made makes a difference if it is made in U.S.A. this is how it is dated your # is 82681563= 1st&5th digit =81 2nd-4th= the day of the year=268=September 25th 56 = the production line # of guitars made till then 3= the 3rd guitar made on September 25th 1981 so the next guitar made after yours would be 574 and the # would read like this 82681574 but remember it matters where it was made in what country I hope this helped you

OK... Most of the guitars have a PAINTED on shielding in the well with the electronics. Sometimes the electrical connection to this is broken causing hum. Sometimes the connection is by way of the potentiometer shaft nuts and they spin and break the connection. This paint is conductive and often black know as aquadag. Use an ohmeter to verify connection.

Replace the guitar cable with a better quality one and keep the guitar away from devices generating magnet fields like amps, etc.

Gibson Les Paul... | Answered on Apr 05, 2011


The bridge should be on two posts, both of them with knurling on the edge. These screw into the body of the guitar, allowing you to raise or lower the action of the strings. Turn them clockwise to lower the action, making sure to turn them the same amount, so as to keep the strings even. You WILL have to re-adjust intonation after this.

Hope that helps!

Is is stamped into the wood? Is "Made in USA" also stamped? You have the proper amount of numbers, and looks like it was made on the 60th day of 2002 in Nashville. For more information, go to:
