Gibson comparing, guitar care is a must!

Even between two Gibson LP models of the same year (1992) the differences are well noted. The guitar care is important, let’s see why.

Setting up regularly is perhaps the most important variable, to have a performance guitar or bass that does not lose value over time

 

These two Gibsons have been changed the frets (the same dimensions for both) we reviewed the setups pretty much the same, but the playability of the instruments is still very different. The non-care of an instrument leads to make it less efficient at the fingerboard, neck and timbre.

A neck left untouched over time, can become very tenacious, but in the wrong position (upbow, backbow, or worst). Wood, by its nature, can bend in various points and can twist itself. The pickups can be demagnetized or broken. The metal parts (bridge and tuners) can oxidize to the point where they can no longer be used. And we could go on like this, listing other degenerative possibilities.

C-Gold Bronze, vintage bass guitars (Cesarini Vintage Series ’60)

Cesarini Vintage Series is the collection of our vintage assembled instruments. Restored parts, which were part of vintage instruments from the 60s – 70s and 80s, come back together to constitute an entire philological guitar or bass guitar, which we then optimized to the best of its potential.

The C-Gold Bronze pickups have been restored, very particular and very quiet, which give the bass a full sound between the single coil and the precision, a formidable attack given the ceramic magnet and a very pleasant nasality given by the metal mask type PAF Gibson.

The cable was interrupted, so we only rebuilt the coil and redone the already existing beeswax shield (wax potting).

The varnish is Cesarini Sienna Burst, that is a Fender sunburst with a glossy open pore.
