    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Standard Owners Club

    Yeah that is a nice top on that thing!! I have one in Bourbon Burst too but not nearly as nice of a top as your's. I must have gotten the plainest top i've seen out of them all ! I just cleaned mine up today and ready for new strings....

    2015 1960 Tribute Plus

    That is a really nice looking guitar man!! I guess if you can deal with the neck profile go for it. I have a 2016 standard and it has that slim tapper neck profile. Prob the thinnest neck i have ever seen on a LP!!

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Standard Owners Club

    I had one of these on back order for months and they never got it in stock so i wound up just grabbing the slash instead. kinda regret not waiting but with the JB 59 maybe it will be easier to obtian one without a 6 month wait!!!

    Epiphone ProBucker Pickup review

    Up date on the pro buckers 2 n 3 i removed the covers from and put them in my chibson. The PBs sounded great with the covers on so it's no suprise that they sound great with the covers off.. Before the chibson sounded very metalish with no tone with the SD JB n 59 in the guitar. Now with the...
