As the LP Tribute is a used instrument, some parts require replacement due to wear & tear. The ones you see above are:
I prefer these ‘speed’ knobs, they are easier to handle & offer a sure grip. You can see the phantom indicators there which could not be cleaned away. The corrosion had left a permanent mark there, nothing harmful.
D’Addario strap buttons & the new poker chip. Those strap buttons – I happen to have spare ones lying around.
Replacement input jack plate – it’s a generic replacement. My experience with the Gibson version – material is softer & more susceptible to cracking so it’s not worth paying a premium for. Folks, if you tighten the screws, do it lightly for each one. Once all four are in place, tighten each one carefully, none should be over-secured. If you tighten any one corner right at the start & proceed to tighten another, the chances of cracking it is higher. Simple Scientific consideration states that one corner should not be over-pressured while another is being attended to, yes?
Last but not least, truss rod cover. Same consideration, folks, do not over-tighten one end before attending to the other.
To be concluded…
