A customer of mine sent me two 1950’s P-90 LP’s for conversions. Both guitars have issues but with some TLC will make great player old wood guitars.

Noticed something odd with the “Les Paul Model” screenprint on the headstock. Looks like they didn’t like the original placement, so they just sprayed black over it and tried again.

Gibson Custom Category Product Specialist Mat Koehler just posted this on his Instagram. New logo, new placement and new shade of gold for 2019. Cool!

Even trough the shitty laptop speakers the 50's sounded so much clearer. Always thought that the bridge played a part but not this much. Any thoughts?

First of all I am very happy with this guitar, but I'm slightly concerned about some small fissures in the fretboard directly in front of the nut. What do you think?

MLP has always been sensitive to vintage Les Paul restoration threads, with equal cries of heresy/praise but I thought some would be interested in the full process.

Issue 430 featuring Bernie Marsden's The Beast is a great issue celebrating 60 years of Les Pauls and the collector edition comes with a poster of The Beast.

In the 'Return of the Les Paul' advertising literature and the Gibson Gazette magazine released in mid-1968, the headstock of the soon to be released Les Paul Standard looks pretty familiar.
