    Getting Over the One that Got Away

    My forever dipshit moment was back in 93, My grandfather bought me a Gibson Les Paul Standard in Ebony with gold hardware and cream plastics. Not a color run, and back then nobody gave a shit what was what for collecting. It cost 1100 new off the wall and I sold it to GC in Boston for an...

    @ wjlim22 Your correct when it comes to me, I've said from the beginning I got taken in by the JB video and just bought it without any thoughts. I already have 5 electrics, 2 which are really the only ones I play 16 gibson standard and 77 Greco Sa-900. I have been saying I need to sell gear...

    Do tell where you ordered the 59? I was looking myself and could only find a couple on Reverb.

    Woah Sweetwater no longer carrying this guitar, what’s up with that? But GC/MF has em in stock? I bet there returns, but idk it’s strange every other store is pre-order. Maybe they are limited that would really sway my decision to keep.

    Ha I'm just seeing what you are showing in the pic, I'm looking at the pics saying his meter screen is cutoff. I thought you were trying to show something on the fluke. I finally seen the binding, man I got to get my eyes checked. One of those pics where the fluke in forefront took my attention...

    I appreciate that information CB91710 Thanks. Maybe it is an illusion but my 1st thought when my wife said it looks smaller was damn I thought that myself. I guess I just opened myself up to be riddled with that statement above

    quick question does your guitar appear to be smaller because of it being black or is it the 3 pickups? Even my wife said it looked smaller, Are we trippin hear? When next to my Gibson it seems maybe a tad thinner but everything else looks the same. I was going to return today but said ahh hell...

    My 2020 Custom with mods

    Nice , no cream poker chip? I used to own a 93 black and gold Gibson standard with all cream plastic. This reminded of it

    @CB91710 Hey that photo you posted is interesting. The diamond is aligned perfectly with top of truss rod. Mine is off a tad and I’ve seen others not perfectly aligned. So many things I never even thought of until now, adding em all up I definitely am bringing mine back tomorrow. So if...

    @DeafDumbBlind Kid. That’s great your happy with it and they took care of you. The only thing I will give a friendly warning on is the case looks cool as hell but it is far from the quality your comparing it too, just don’t slide it on any surface but carpet. That pleather material will...

    Does this tail piece look right for a 93 60's reissue?

    That's a nice guitar, I've been looking for an early 90's myself. I like how the font is higher and curious what pickups are in there. You could always put bridge and tailpiece back to what it was if you didn't like what's on there. How much was it?? Dig it man

    @CB91710 I’m inclined to agree with you on the setups but my chief complaints have been poor presentation and pickups outta whack. I don’t think humidity will mess with pickup height. I had a busy night so never looked at it again but I’ve heard the guitars online sound great so maybe I’ll...

    Interesting you got an invoice? I just got guitar in case inside epiphone box. Not surprised B string broke they are the worst strings. The neck feels awesome, no complaints there. My action is actually low and fast. Shocked yours weighs 9lbs, I didn’t weigh mine but it felt light. Will weigh...
