    The Most Beautiful Les Paul

    I always liked this one that was for sale here years ago:

    B-Stock discount?

    There's always a difference between the nitro finish on a Gibson and the poly finish on an Epi (much harder than the nitro). So it's virtually impossible to ding an Epiphone in the same way. Gibsons, it's not difficult at all.

    B-Stock discount?

    That dent in the nut is pretty noticeable. I'd ask for the cost to replace the nut, and buy the one you were planning to replace with, and just do that early. You may be able to buff that finish ding somewhat with Virtuoso, and make it less noticeable. THere's no harm in trying. The likely saw...

    In praise of The New Originals!

    I wanted to share another pic of my 2019 '61 SG...it does have a nicer grain than my previous pic showed, so I thought I should post another:

    It's pretty well balanced. It weights 7.2 lbs, which seems like a sweet spot. I think having the vibrola on the back helps its balance.

    It's sort of a Les Paul, and part of the Original Collection:

    NGD : 2019 Gibson SG Standard w/ Sideways Vibrola

    Yours looks awesome, congrats! I've heard they aren't big sellers, so I wanted to make sure I got one now, in case they discontinue the model.

    NGD : 2019 Gibson SG Standard w/ Sideways Vibrola

    All I did was remove the strings, took the tailpiece off, and removed the springs. That made the tailpiece return to its original position, which also moved the vibrola out of the way of the jack, as it was getting in the way before. I added some nut sauce, and the tuning is fantastic now. I...

    Mine has the shelf in the heel-joint. I don't know if that's what you're referring to. The neck is very comfortable, but certainly a bit on the slim side.

    It's pretty balanced. Once in a while it has a slight neck-dive, but I just adjust my posture a bit, and its fine again. That said, I play sitting down, so that may vary for ppl using a strap.
