Okay, I'll start by saying I posted in another thread http://www.mylespaul.com/threads/think-im-back-into-explorer-guitars-being-my-favorite.411717/page-4 that I have a 2016 Explorer Faded that just wasn't cutting it. So I decided rather than spend time/energy/$$ trying to give life to it, I'd...
First of all, I'm not going to muddy up the thread going on under Les Pauls.
Second, I realize that the process may have changed since they started it.
Third, I can guess all day long too, so I'd like to stick to what what is known.
I'm trying to find out what exactly is involved and can't...
If you have one, you may want to read this to keep your LP from being damaged as happened with a poster on another forum.
The cases for those 2 models are for just those 2 models and differ (somehow) from the other LP cases.
Problem is the neck rests on the edge (corner) of the compartment next...
Musicians Friend Stupid deal, today only. May sell out so don't sit on the fence.
This is about as good as it gets on one of the best EPI workhorses. Solid, solid value.
Great price on a really good EPI LP. Today only.

I was recently fortunate enough to get the number 1 guitar on my bucket list: A Brad Gillis Fernandes Signature Strat. I had some reservations about it being authentic, as most that I've seen are different than this one. I know there are some known variations. I do know of one other one...

"Gibson USA is celebrating 2013 as the Year of Les Paul, and is blowing it up big with a new series of decade-dedicated...
Okay, this looks great. But talk about double talk, since when has a "Plus" top ever been a "Plain" top? Since now, I guess.
Better just use our eyes and forget...
This one but in black, of course:
B.C. Rich Mockingbird Contour Electric Guitar Gold Top | Guitar Center
Was a MF Stupid Deal, price matched at GC for $199.
Didn't expect a lot, but was I in for a surprise. More like shocked. This guitar is amazingly good. For $400 even. Flawless finish...
Spoiler alert, I've ended up with one that I'm extremely happy with.
Now to here:
Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro 3T Electric Guitar Heritage...
Ltd. Ed. Riviera Custom P93 Blue Royale
Wanted to get a semi hollow body electric, and decided to get this one. Also wanting to get some P90s, this took care of both wants. Quite frankly, this guitar is a tremendous bang for the buck.
The deal: $399.99 offered by MF, price matched by GC, so...
I know the advice "has always been" to replace EPI wiring. But now that EPI is using "full size" 1" 500k pots, is this really a major thing anymore? Or is this just general advice that has not been kept up to date? It is too easy to generalize.
So what's up with this model? Not on the Gibson site. Not offered in the US?
