    Meaningful Acquisition: Custom Shop or Vintage

    I nominate @GearHo to be my personal consigliere. He can just send pictures of things I should buy and I'll wire funds. Doesn't have to be related to guitars...just stuff in general.

    Meaningful Acquisition: Custom Shop or Vintage

    Thanks again for all the replies. Some of the thoughtfulness of your posts has really put a lot of perspective on my choice. I'm really putting some serious consideration into a 50's Jr. now. The more I think of it, it really is what I am looking for if only because you can't get wood shaped...

    Dale Earnhardt Les Pauls - My eyes! I can't unsee these!

    Hot take: I really like the one with his face. Wouldn't pay more than $150 for it but the man had a mustache we should all be jealous of.

    Meaningful Acquisition: Custom Shop or Vintage

    Just wanted to pop in an say thank you for the responses so far. I hadn't thought about a 50's Jr. at all so that is a great addition to my options.

    NGD! 2003 R9 Brazilian board

    Just to throw in a couple of cents on why it's a big deal to me - as someone that makes things as a business but also has a "real" job where honesty is paramount...and I'm in the market for a late 60's/70s Les Paul or expensive reissue. I am willing to "overpay" to buy something from...

    Classic vs. Standard 60s!

    Quick question - the new 60s Standard doesn't come in black, right? My first Gibson is an upgraded 2020 Classic. I read the new Standard is now basically the same guitar with different features). My Classic is awesome, but I may also have won the QC lottery. For me personally, I wanted it to...

    NGD - Hot-rodded 2020 Les Paul Classic

    Picked this up from @Pop1655 here on MLP. My first Gibson. Couldn't be happier. Upgraded plastics and hardware, Dimarzio Super Distortion pickups, CTS pots. I was looking for a standard but didn't love the colors other than a Goldtop. Luckily I ran across this!
