I was lucky enough to come by a 1976 Ibanez solid body lawsuit-era Les Paul. For its age, it plays and sounds great.
I do have one concern. I bought a mid-range guitar cord to go from the guitar to the amp. This cord is 90 degree angled at the jack port. On past guitar/cord setups, I was able to pull the cord around my strap and remove the slack.
With this setup, if I don't allow slack between the jack port and the strap, there is ground hum.
Is this because I bought an inferior guitar cord, or does it sound like the jack port is need of some TLC?
