On a whim, I recently grabbed a new 2018 GLP Traditional Honey Burst from Sweetwater when they (finally) posted some interesting new ones. I really liked the top and color, weight is fine (9 lbs), pics gave me a decent idea of a few key areas of the guitar (nut, fretboard-to-body finish, string alignment, etc.). I totally went against my own insistence that I only buy used LPs. Turns out I really like it - a lot. Tonewise, I've not heard a Trad (going back to 2013) that sounds this toneful, alive, and just interesting, either plugged in or not. Fretboard is really nice, clean fretwork, binding, nibs look great. Excellent neck set angle. The nut was cut and placed really well, and has also been shaped and smoothed a bit compared to other ones I've had. Everything about the physical guitar is spot-on - I go through them pretty carefully over the first day or two and this one came up very clean. One interesting note: the dang thing was set up to perfection. Just a hair of relief, excellent action at the 12th, good nut slot depths, intonation was ... what? ... dead-on. I literally haven't touched the truss nut or the saddles since I got it, save to tweak the intonation just a hair when I switched to 10's. Someone was paying attention when this one was built and packaged up. I had some serious seller's remorse when I sold off my last GLP Trad, and now things are right again. Trying to take pics of this one is difficult - it's got the most "animated" top I've ever seen. It really changes a lot depending on your position, and it also shows this very cool flamey ripple effect when you tilt the guitar towards/away from you (in addition to the side-to-side thing). Not seen one like it before.
