    Tri-color burst '68 RI Les Paul Custom FS

    Is this the big neck version - or the Guitar Center one with the 60's slim taper??

    Mark Knopfler's '58

    I'm waiting for my Aged and Signed here in the UK!! What's the bet that Gibson shipped them all back Stateside when they were signed - and I now have to wait for it to be shipped back to the UK again....via the European will have covered some miles by the time I see it!

    How have your RI's aged over the past 10 years or more?

    I had a VOS R7 Goldtop - I tried to age by leaving it by the fire and then taking it outside into sub-zero temperatures....and vice-versa. It didn't budge an inch - not even one small crack in the "nitro"

    NGD: 2006 '68 LPC Reissue in Triburst + some thoughts

    I'd love one with a nice fatter neck and a good top on it. I would pay a good price for one like that!

    Paul Kossoff aged: what about the neck feel?

    Exactly! I find I can play my Aged CC#1's and Kossoff with fewer visual references to the fretboard than my other guitars. Personally LOVE the feel!

    Has anyone heard when the Aged and Signed ones are actually shipping?

    NGD:Knopfler '58 VOS

    Yeah - the Gibson spec sheet confirms that the VOS and "Aged" are both "Standard Historic" spec.....whereas the "Signed and Aged" is "True Historic" spec. I have an Aged and Signed on order!

    I love the iguana's - but this one is my favourite - where did it end up?? (and why do they insist on using richlite on some of these gorgeous creations?)

    Ace Frehley "59 vs Jimmy Page Custom sig

    In that case its a no brainer - go for the Ace. The neck on the #1 is so thin that it bends out of tune with aggressive playing.....I know this....

    Ace Frehley "59 vs Jimmy Page Custom sig

    The Ace very time. The JP has a stupidly skinny neck and that awkward middle pick up....

    Played a True Historic today....

    The thing I find most disappointing about the aesthetics of all the 'regular" TH models I have played/seen is the incredibly pale Rosewood on all of them - very pale with wide colour variation and banding - some of it almost looks like Pau Ferro ? Not exactly 'true historic" is it?
