    Heritage H-150 prices

    Currently, I've noticed that the new Heritage H-150s are the same price as Gibson Les Paul Standards (50s and 60s). Perhaps it's all the good press and reviews they've been getting lately, but, on the used market, I'm seeing H-150s that are pretty close to list price, whereas the Gibsons are far...

    Suhr Standard Pro HSS vs Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s

    Would love to hear a blind tone comparison between the two to see how it sounds. Met a guy who has a suhr, Anderson and Ibanez prestige and despite the price difference he said all three are comparable with the exception of the wizard neck.

    Which pot did you find to solve this issue? I'm thinking to do the same.

    What is a good % to negotiate today on a new guitar?

    I have a different experience. I got a used guitar in good condition and they went down from the listed $1000 to $780. Depends how long they’ve been holding onto it. In general they’re very accommodating.

    2015 Les Paul

    Have a 2015 less plus and it’s the best sounding guitar I own with zero binding in the titanium nut. I wish more guitars offered titanium nuts, as it’s incredible material for the part. i often prefer the wider neck over my strat as the high e string never slips off. Replaced the tuners because...

    6 New Slash Guitars

    The jump from the ec256 to a LP studio would be huge. Don’t think it needs to be $4k territory to be exciting. Honestly, the new epiphone inspired by LP would get you close enough. Really depends what style of neck and what kind of tone you’re seeking. My all time pick for best bang for the buck...

    Nothing beats that moment when I found out Billy Gibbons plays a Strat on La Grange.

    6 New Slash Guitars

    As someone who recently got into LPs, I have been drooling over the appetite and november designs way before these were released. I think Gibson made a great move with this collection - some of which is going to be standard run, as I understand it. And they increased the top grade, made it a...

    can you share a pic? Might want to try to create the same thing.

    String swing damaged my Les Paul after hanging for one night

    Currently about to pull the trigger on a strat build with a no-finish roasted maple custom warmoth neck. Finish is a pain! Poly is too sticky and nitro is too finicky.

    String swing damaged my Les Paul after hanging for one night

    Yes, this is why I bought a string swing. And I really like it. But then this happened immediately. Here‘s a close up. Thing is, the guitar is second hand and came with the larger marks on the top (Closer to the tuners). I guess I thought they were scratches and not melted finish. The new...

    String swing damaged my Les Paul after hanging for one night

    Mine actually looks like the lacquer melted precisely at the point of contact. No heat nearby or anything. So much worse than just discoloration which wouldn’t be an issue with black anyway.

    String swing damaged my Les Paul after hanging for one night

    You think cutting strips of microfiber cloth and putting them on the cradle would help? Have many of those lying around.

    String swing damaged my Les Paul after hanging for one night

    I installed a new string swing guitar keeper which I just got from sweetwater. Hung my 2015 desert burst LP and it looked gorgeous and felt sturdy. Left it up overnight and in the morning I took it down only to find small indentations in the black finish at the points where the cradle was...

    NGD: Eastman SB59/V-GB (relic Les Paul copy) REVIEW

    Right. I mean if Gibson wanted to make "Gibson"s in China with single-piece bodies, maple caps and non-pot metal hardware. Also, I feel like made in China affords the manufacturer, such as Eastman, some forgiveness when things are not 100%. For example, if Gibson USA had shipped a $1500 guitar...

    NGD: Eastman SB59/V-GB (relic Les Paul copy) REVIEW

    Been hearing great things about these! Back to your review, it appears that some of the woods used are not the same as you’d find in a Gibson. Is it possible the body and neck are not mahogany but some sort of similar wood? Did you ever figure out why the fretboard was staining your hands black...

    2015 Les Paul Less Plus - thoughts 4 years later?

    I've had my 2015 LP Less+ for 7 months now and would like to add a few more thoughts on this axe. The tone of this thing is really the main draw: it's got that killer classic rock roar. I'm convinced the single-piece moahogany fat neck is what drives so much of the melodic resonance. Strum an a...

    Where have all the flamey LP Standards gone?

    Yah, I feel like if you get a PRS Core, you always get a nice top. If you got a pre-JC LP Standard, you got a nice top. In the JC Standards, the tops are really all over the map.
