    Should Gibson bring Les Paul Custom back to Gibson USA line?

    they do make the custom in the regular gibson line....the white studios with ebony boards and 490/498 pups. Aside from binding and headstock, its just a blinged out studio. I get where this post is coming from. Gibson usa did the custom lites and custom classics in the regular line for about the...

    Looking to try some new strings

    i used to use daddario 10s but my acidic hands eat through strings - talking about black strings within a day of restringing if you are similar, may i highly suggest elixirs. I have been using them for almost a month now and no blacking or notable degradation

    Which Grovers?

    I got a set of grover keystone rotomatics to swap out the current gold kidney grovers. However, these new gold keystones holes dont align with the holes on my guitar. If I want to drill a new hole, I would also be double-dipping into the existing hole thats drilled in. Did i get the wrong...

    im sure its been posted 100x now but now matter what, any guitar that comes in my possession, new/old, guitar center/wildwood, regardless of anything, even if the guitar was setup prior to shipping - NO MATTER WHAT - i take it to my luthier to get it setup to my specs. I can not stress how...

    LP Standard --- Silverburst?

    they offer gold, silverburst, transparent finishes, sparkle finishes, sunbursts and solids. They also offer neck profile, pickup and fingerboard options - if i could have those options on the current lineup of gibsons that'd be more than enough for me. Or just offer a standard plus with options...

    LP Standard --- Silverburst?

    gibson should stop playing games and just give us what we want - like how fender is offering some customization options for a couple hundred bucks extra per model via the mod shop https://shop.fender.com/en-US/mod-shop.html and give us white lps and sgs for under 4k while youre at it
