    Even some GC models sometimes make their way to other retailers; i've seen a bunch of Trad Pro II's and Studio Deluxes in European shops lately.

    Got myself a Trad pro 2 in the uk last month.
    Wonder if I could get a natural one of these here too?

    I do love me some wine red! Guitars, that is.

    I know it's consistant with the last one, but it's disappointing to set yet another SLIM neck LP.

    Nice guitar, but right now Gibson USA is really failing the 50's neck market IMO.

    I assume the majority of people enjoy slim necks.

    The standard inlays and holly inlay really do it for me.

    If I had the bucks, I'd nab one.

    Not sure that's true, but either way it's nice to have options rather than the same profile coming on the majority of models.

    You do get to have the option of either the LPJ or LPJ Pro :D

    Very cool!!! :thumb:

    Glad to see these back again, they are awesome guitars. Also happy to see it in two of my favorite finishes: wine red, and natural. :dude:

    If they offer this in a desert burst finish my wife is going to be P!$$ED!!!

    I really like the natural.

    I like that they have a rosewood board and the traditional inlays. It's definitely nice..

    I like it, actually heres a time when I like another color other than red on a LP. That natural is sweet

    I guess I'm the only one that is underwhelmed. Sure it's nice. I wish they would have stepped a little further out of the box. The specs seem old and tired. And the paw print on the headstock is nothing new. How about something such as an asymmetrical neck, compound radius fretboard, ebony board, locking tuners, nice bridge/tailpiece combo, or even a 57+. I'd bet a paycheck it has the same coil split PC board as whatever tribute or studio with coil splits.

    Most any new Les Paul model is cool. I like both colors. I'm glad the CC is not dead. I just think this is weak on WOW factor. It seems the only criteria for a CC is headstock binding.
