    NGD: This really ain't so bad.....

    Correction: Pretty sure this is a Les Paul Classic, not a trad. Sorry. lol Official other edit: "Ok guys, I have to apologize for the long reply time. Guitar is INDEED a 2015 Sam Ash Exclusive Trad Classic per the sales receipt. That was also what it said on the tag, so myyyy bad lol. I...

    Norlins in their natural habitat (getting played live!)

    I think there's already a thread for all LPs, but I thought I'd start a photo thread for us members who gig our norlins. Idk about you guys, but mine get a looooot of live use (I figure its what they're built for) I have a photographer friend who always comes to our shows and takes snaps that...

    NGD, flaming cow skull not included

    Picked this baby up on eBay recently and she rips! I have ALWAYS wanted a flying V and this one fit the bill nicely given my band's heavy dark doomy business. Sporting the stock pickups, aftermarket bridge, pots, knobs and pickguard. Its a beast. And with its partner in crime....

    NGD - 1976 Custom and it is incredible.

    I recently picked up a well-loved '78 LP standard for a great deal that is a truly monstrous log of doom. Its worked incredibly well for me in every aspect since I got it. This 76 Custom almost seemed like fate - Last Saturday I stopped into an independent music store about 40 minutes from my...

    NGD! Les Paul Standard Pro, Honeyburst

    I'd been walking past this thing at Guitar Center for about three months before finally I finally bought it. Aside from being really pretty, it happens to be one of the nicer Epis in its price range I've come across. I own a few Gibson LPs so this was a cool addition, something different but...

    Anyone else here play Doom/Sludge-y/Stoner Metal on their LP?

    I have been playing this kind of music with a band for about 2 years now and while I've always been in metal-type bands, none of them have been as gratuitously satisfying as this one. We're similar to Kowloon Walled City, Floor, Sleep, etc. We tune to B - I use a beefy Norlin-Era Les Paul...

    NGD - '78 Standard Natural Top

    This came in the mail today. :thumb: I picked it up for a great price on Reverb and its a MONSTER. Its a 1978 standard, original natural finish. Bridge pickup was switched out a long time ago for a DiMarzio Super D. Loads of sustain. Weighs like 7000 lbs. :laugh2: Pics! (updated with good...

    I took the plunge and realized a dream today. Imminent NGD!

    I am fortunate enough to have accumulated a couple of wonderful modern LPs. One is an honest, workaday studio in flat black, and the other is a 2013 Studio Deluxe that is super lively and bright sounding but also has a lot of balls. Love them both. Today, however, I added this to my collection...

    Transformed my Studio Deluxe.

    Have had this guitar for a little over 3 months and while I loved how it played and mostly loved how it looked, I could never get it to work with my band rig. We are on the heavy side, so while I can appreciate clarity, a Les Paul should not *twang* like this bastard did. So, I had the stock...

    NGD!! - 2013 Studio Deluxe II (and it is SWEET)

    Picked this up the other day. Its a new thing for me. My other Studio is very stripped and I like that about it a lot (no coil tap, no extras, just wood, humbuckers, four speed knobs, flat black) but the opportunity came up to pick this baby up in essentially brand new condition so I jumped on...

    Ngd: 1987 sg 62!

    Got her in a trade deal, and I am pretty stoked on it. I've never had a proper SG, and this really is a PROPER SG. :thumb: Few cell photos: Trunk of the car day I got it, went straight to rehearsal (note the marshall, :laugh2:) With my LP: :thumb: Sounds really great...

    Aging Magnets.

    Just curious - I have two Les Pauls, a 96 Std and a 2011 Studio. Both came stock with the 490/498 setup and have the stock pickups in them. Just based on sound, the pickups in the 96 seem to have noticeably lower output (and thus some pretty awesome clarity/definition), much closer to a PAF...

    PAF "replica" for heavy music?

    I'm thinking about pickups for one of my LPs. I have a 96 standard that sounds pretty great with the stock pickups, but I'm still thinking about changing them out for some PAF reproductions because experimenting with pickups is fun, and I may just find an amazing combo I hadn't thought of...

    Check out this first demo for a record I'm writing. :) (Metalheads, this is for you!)

    Sup guys! Link: https://soundcloud.com/gldstn2/1154p My band is taking a little breather from shows for a bit for various reasons, so I've been working on songs for an EP I've been meaning to do for a long time. This is an instrumental track as of now but I have a vocalist lined up for...

    Been home sick for a couple days, so here's some cool guitar photos.

    Sup guys! Had some beautiful weather and I've been working from home for the last few days, so I got some shots of my LP Std in the sunlight, and a trippy backlit one of my strat. :wave:

    Yesterday was a special day. (NGD!)

    Came out of the blue, but I drove 4 hours each way for it and it was worth every last second. 1996 Les Paul Standard (I think the finish is Cherry Burst). I got it in trade for a strat I had put on CL about a month ago. It was fate. Best playing guitar I have ever put hands on, bar none (my...

    Adding some shine to a "Worn" polyurethane finish?

    I just picked up a used Epiphone LP Studio Faded and it has a really nice top. The grain is actually quite gorgeous and I don't have a PG for it, so its on full display all the time. I would like to give the finish a bit of a gloss look. I know virtuoso and Turtle wax are the best for nitro...

    Ngd!

    I had an old Jackson Rhoads kickin around my house that I never played (and that I had gotten for basically free about a year ago). My bass player spotted it when he was over at my house over the weekend and instantly fell in love. He offered to trade me his Epi LP Studio (which I had played and...

    In praise of my LP studio. What a great guitar.

    Guitar gush thread - GO! Winding down after back to back shows this weekend (one way up north and one way down south, woo!) and I was cleaning my Gibby and reflecting on the magnificent, crunch, balls, and definition it had so willingly delivered through my venerable 5150 both nights....all the...
