    Richlite in Hindsight

    Now that Gibson is back to using ebony fretboards on Customs again, do you think it's devalued the ones with Richlite boards at all? I think it's something I'd get used to if that were the only option available, but given a choice it would be ebony over Richlite every time. None of the debates...

    Ceramic caps vs:

    Hey guys, new to this section of the forum. Last November I bought a 2018 Modern LP Custom and have loved everything about it.

    Paying the Price for a Gibson

    One of the biggest complaints about Gibson is their pricing. Personally I think EVERYTHING is overpriced in today's market mostly due to credit and disposable income.

    Time as Music

    Since there are a likely a number of highly qualified musicians here, I figured it would be a good place to ask. I was never taught formal music theory, which is why I've taken up guitar in my mid 50s... to learn more about what music is at its most fundamental level and how it works. I...

    NGD Gibson Les Paul STD Limited Edition Mahogany Top

    I found this forum when I was searching for info on my new guitar. There really isn't a lot of info out there on this specific model except at Gibson's website. It's a 2016 limited run but I have no idea how many were produced. It's essentially the same as a regular Les Paul Standard 2016t but...
