I don't understand why almost all people mention long sustain as a mark of quality.
What use is it? I change chords and play on different strings all the time, I never keep one tone for many seconds.
The only place where long sustain is frowned upon is amongst flamenco players.
Is it just...
I bought a nice original Gibson LP case and was contemplating buying a guitar to put in the case.
To justify this buy, I am thinking of buying a Bigsby as well for that guitar, as I don't have that yet but then I guess it can't go into the case anymore? Catch 22.

Can anybody date this NOS LP case?
I think the handle and the code lock must be significant.
The other I bought from the shop, I could date to 2008 from a warranty certificate left in it but this one must be older, I guess.

The label was a cheap sticker/decal so it might just be the importers name.
It says Gibson on the the trussrod cover.
I did find the Epiphone Pee Wee...
Sorry guys, I couldn't find a forum called "Other Les Pauls" so hope I'm not too far out here.
I saw a Mini Les Paul in a shop today. Its really cute but rather expensive at 450USD so I tried to find one on the internet but no luck, I can't even find any reference to the factory.
The LP has...
