    So I just recently purchased my very first Gibson, a 2012 Gibson Studio Deluxe. I tried out a few different Studios, the Deluxe, and a Traditional Pro. Something about the Deluxe just felt the best to me and I am really happy with the purchase. Right now the selector switch is broken (the actual switch broke off, but it still works). I got a few hundred knocked off the price for that, and they ordered me the new part. Also, I am considering putting on a cream pickguard. Any thoughts on that? Anyway, I am very excited with my purchase and I am happy to have my first Les Paul.

    Congrats. Good job looking at the options and choosing what's right for you. And forget out the pick guard, imo.

    Thanks for all the replies. I am shying away from the pick guard idea, but I still want to figure out some way to make it a little bit unique. Maybe it will come in time. Just out of curiosity, how do you post pictures directly like that?

    Nice guitar mate, well done.

    I bought one here Down Under in Australia a couple of months back. Only change I felt it needed was some chrome keystone tuner buttons so I did that and have been happy ever since.

    Your guitar so you make it your own by customising it however you like but I wouldn't like to see it with a pick guard. Let that lovely maple show!

    Nice guitar, Many happy hours I hope is your's with it. What color is it by the way? I have a 2010 in Heritage Cherry Sunburst. I think they happen to look better without the pick guard.
