    Can't decide between a 2013 Traditional and a 2018 Traditional

    Can't decide between a 2013 Traditional and a 2018 Traditional

    Could just be the lighting, but I like the darker fretboard on the first one. The top also looks a little better (to me). But they are both killer guitars. I've had '13 Trads and liked them a lot. They do tend to have chunkier necks, as you pointed out. I don't think I've played a 2018 Trad so...

    Shipping guitar from Australia to USA what SH to use?

    I know what you mean about UPS and guitars but the only time I shipped a guitar to the UK and also to Hawaii, I used UPS. True, the postal service seems to treat guitars pretty good. Personally my experience is better when using a brand new box rather than re-using a guitar box thats already...

    NGD: 2013 Les Paul Tribute to Les Paul '52 Gold Top

    Thanks for the info. I have 3 of those 2018 Classics with P90s and really dig them too. I'll play more with the Tribute. I haven't had a chance to play it again since being out of town for awhile.

    NGD: 2013 Les Paul Tribute to Les Paul '52 Gold Top

    Not a conversion, this is stone cold stock. And the amp is set how I use it with all my guitars and pedals so that when I make a change there are fewer variables.

    NGD: 2013 Les Paul Tribute to Les Paul '52 Gold Top

    Loving it so far (after playing it for 5 minutes). Which way would I adjust the pickups to get a little more top end sparkle? Right now they are pretty darn close to the strings.
