Having issues with Purple Majesty Monarchy 🙁
Added another guitar to my collection. I’m a long time Gibson Les Paul user and took the plunge. Finally just got this back from the 12th fret here in Portland, OR. But am having some severe issues with my new monarchy majesty. I’m hoping I don’t have to send it back.
First of all, had the guitar setup with 009-046 gauged strings rather than the 10s that this guitar normally came with. My guitar will not stay in tune, the strings just seem way too sloppy. Should I take this back to the 12th fret and see if they can make some adjustments?
Second, whenever I plug in, my guitar just randomly powers off, then I have to plug it back in to get sound again. This is super annoying as it keeps shorting out like this. It even happens when I switch between the piezo and bridge/neck pickups. I’ve swapped out several batteries and the issue keeps happening. I also am using a brand new mogami cable. Could it be a wiring issue?
Third, I’ve played these majesties at a lot of stores and when I finally got one in my hands at home, it just doesn’t feel as comfortable. I just feel like the ergonomics don’t work for me. I’m a taller guy 6″4 and have pretty long arms. I feel like I’m holding a ukulele in my lap sometimes lol. Is this normal and does it just take some getting used to? Also take into account, I’m used to a fixed bridge and a beefier guitar in a les paul.
I’m hoping I can iron out these technical issues, because it really is a beautiful guitar. Love the purple finish on it! Thanks for you help as always.:o
