    My brand new Les Paul appears to be a 2006 model???

    I really gave it a good lookover - I am sending it back - the frets look really dulled (almost rusted) and the bridge is setup strange - the top side is set much higher than the bottom......I don't feel good about this at all...... Just got off the phone with Musicians Friends - they are...

    My brand new Les Paul appears to be a 2006 model???

    I'll post pics in a bit, but I have a question. My Les Paul Std just came in from MusiciansFriend. It looks great! If I'm reading the serial number right, it appears to be a 2006 model. The serial number is 000560559. Am I interpreting it correctly? If it is a 2006 vs a current late...

    Do you, and how blatant, lie to your wife about the guitars?

    What a great thread.....I never lie to my wife - I do low ball the cost sometimes, but other times she surprises me. I've been telling her and the kids "I will have a Les Paul by my next major birthday" for years. A month ago, I got a 20% discount voucher from Musicians Friend. I also just...

    rock 'n' roll tone

    I have the best of both worlds for you. I put this combo in my Ibanez artist - and its perfect. Seymour Duncan Alnico II in the neck - nice creamy Slash-like tones Seymour Duncan Custom custom in the bridge - its an overwound Alnico II - a little hotter! GREAT COMBO!!!!

    What gauge strings do Gibby put on new LP's?

    I have a LP standard on order (just shipped today) - its my first LP - I was wondering if anyone knows what gauge strings are usually put on by Gibson? I play 10-46's on my other guitars. Thanks!

    Do you practice standing up or sitting down?

    I do most practicing - learning new songs or technique sitting - but make sure I play standing as well, so it doesn't feel strange when I play out.

    Another hello from the Atlanta area

    I just joined this forum as I ordered my first Gibson LP std last week. I'm an 'old fart' thats been playing for many many years. I live in the Atlanta area - Gwinnett County - northeast of the city. I actually started playing as a child in the late 60's and 70's - and gave it up in 1975...
