    Is “tune once and done” a myth?

    I can tune mine, set it in the case and pull it out after a week and is still basically in tune. Once the strings are "broken in" some, my LP stays in tune very well.

    60's Standard 61 pickups?

    Yes Exactly. From the Gibson website Iced Tea A Whole Lotta Les! The new Les Paul Standard returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music. It pays tribute to Gibson's Golden Era of innovation and brings authenticity...

    60's Standard 61 pickups?

    Yes, they are burstbuckers. It clearly states that in the descriptions. I love them. I think they sound fantastic.

    Yay or nay on decking the stopbar

    Stopbar all the way down. Top wrap. The only way to play a LP. My opinion of course.

    What Is It About The Les Paul That Makes It Special?

    It's the standard. It's timeless. It's road tested. It's versatile. It's beautiful. Easy to get a good sound. The LP has been my go to guitar since the first time I picked one up. Something about the feel of it. I have played other guitars and own other guitars but nothing feels like...

    Looking to try some new strings

    For my opinion, I hate EB strings. Die quickly. D'Addario are the ones I use and last a good while. Give them a try.

    Gibson LP Std 50s vs. LP Classic

    Well, that's subjective. I hate coil tapping, hate weight relieved LP's, prefer the pickups in the standard and, would never be satisfied with less than a standard. Everyone has their own opinion, just like the one you have. To each his/her own

    Classic vs. Standard 60's

    That is if you like coil tapping. One of the main reasons I bought the 60's standard is because no bullshit like that on it. To each his/her own though.

    Would you rather purchase a beat '77 les paul with...

    If I was looking, I wouldn't really look at that if it wasn't stock regardless if the original parts were with it

    Slash vs. Joe Perry

    Between those 2, definitely Joe Perry but, I like Brad's playing better than Joe's

    Sweetwater down to their last in stock Gibson electric guitar

    It's not hard to look at American Musical or ZZSounds. They have some in stock if you are looking for an LP. I'm so glad I got mine before all this bullshit started.

    What is the root cause of GAS?

    The root cause of GAS is that you aren't truly happy with your instrument, amp, or pedal. In my 30+ years of playing, I have owned so many different guitars/basses, amps and pedals that if I had them all, it would fill up a 20x20 room, top to bottom. I finally am truly happy with my set up now...

    2019 50s standard or 2013 58RI

    Well, IMO, I'd have to play and compare the 2. No way I could give you advice on that but, GL with whatever you decide.

    Is my R9 chambered ?

    you can do it yourself, if you are comfortable changing your own strings. if you do, cut the balls off the strings you take off and slip them on the ongoing strings you want to put on top wrapping. this will help keep the winding part at the bottom hidden. you what they say, once you top...

    The only way to go!!

    Classic vs. Standard 60's

    I would never be happy with less than a standard. All LP models are nice. Just personal preference. To ME, when Gibson came back out with non weight relief and no gimmicks like coil tapping (which I hate), it was a no brainer. I would say go with the Standard but only you can make that call...

    In praise of The New Originals!

    The main difference I'm after is the quality of woods. They are cream of the crop but, you find the right standard, it will suffice

    In praise of The New Originals!

    Don't mind uncovered pickups but to me, anything less than a Standard, I would regret. My 60's Bourbon Burst is a great guitar and I don't have any shoulda coulda woulda thoughts. . Hotter pickups, slimmer neck and the top color made it an easy choice over the 50's. Not to mention, finally a...
