    Looking for Lazarus

    Well, after being told every week since August that mine was arriving, it actually finally arrived! (Ordered it on February 1) I took a quick look at it in my office, and initial impressions are good. Definitely not a 4A top, but it looks good to me. The board is nice and dark, and I noticed no...

    Looking for Lazarus

    Well, good luck! I ordered a Billie Joe Junior a week before the Laz, and it’s not expected until November!

    Looking for Lazarus

    Still waiting on mine which was ordered at the beginning of February. Supposedly shipping next week, still not holding my breathe though. If you decide to reserve one, don't forget to call and ask for a discount!

    Epiphone Joe Bonamassa 'Lazarus' 59 Les Paul Standard Owners Thread

    Wow, I would not be thrilled to say the least. I do hope that they come through, but if not, I'm not out anything, let alone 5 grand! I am definitely not holding my breath though! Don't they perform the final "set-up" and inspection in the US for these? If so, if it's due to arrive next week...

    Epiphone Joe Bonamassa 'Lazarus' 59 Les Paul Standard Owners Thread

    So, I pre-ordered one from MF on February 1, assuming that they were already totally sold out and that there were not going to be any more produced, but figured what the heck, if it comes in, awesome, if not, I'm not out anything. Well, I talked to MF last week, and they said that Epiphone told...

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Standard Owners Club

    Here's my newly acquired '59: It's a one of the Sweetwater exclusive Honey Bursts. It comes in at 8.7 pounds, which feels about perfect to me for a Les Paul. Just about as flawless as can be, and sounds amazing. I added one of their photos because it's hard to capture the flames well. I love the...

    Did you ever have or see a twisted neck Les Paul

    I haven't seen a Les Paul, but I did have a beautiful brand new SG Standard with a twisted neck about five years ago. It was very obvious looking down the neck from the head stock. I tried everything to get it set up properly, including taking it to a pro, but it was a lost cause unfortunately...

    NGD: 1961 Les Paul SG Standard

    I definitely dig Olive Drab, would make a great color on an SG.

    NGD: 1961 Les Paul SG Standard

    Hey all, haven't posted in a while, but was excited about my new SG, and thought I would share. So, I have bought and sold a few guitars over a the last several years, and the only one I really regret selling was my White 2013 SG Standard. It was perfect, and I sold it like a mo-ron! I have been...

    NGD: 50s LP Standard V-Burst

    Yeah, some sort of strong solvent smell I guess. It was very strong though, you could smell it before you opened the case. Maybe the finish wasn't fully cured or something? Who knows, I don't know a lot about the finishes or how they are applied. It was white, but I doubt that has anything to do...

    NGD: 50s LP Standard V-Burst

    That's funny, I just played it yesterday, and I was like, now it even smells like a Gibson! Weird, they must spray the interior of the cases with a scent that is similar to the lacquer. Thanks for posting that, if anyone would know, it's a former employee. I bought a new '16 LP Studio once...
