    Alright boys, what the hell we looking at here? (CL)

    Holy shit I think you're right! $1,500 and a questionable description in the ad smells like stolen property to me!

    Normal truss rod cavity?

    ALL USED Les Pauls Going Up 7-10%!

    Storing a Les Paul.

    A full step every month? So after a year your whole guitar will have curled back on itself?

    Storing a Les Paul.

    Or not at all.... Pointless. Do you have a chart or something where you look up tunings vs. time spent in storage?
