    Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Standard 1997

    Anyone know the background of this guitar? It doesn't look like a historical reissue. Was it just a Les Paul Standard with an ABR-1 bridge?

    Debating "imperfections"

    Surely cosmetic flaws are a testament to the fact that they're handmade guitars & shouldn't this be a reassuring thing? I mean, if Les Paul's were 100% aesthetically perfect it'd raise questions & concerns? Like, make people suspect them of being made by machines instead of people? Also, why...

    Has the size of the 50's neck been grossly exaggerated?

    I've avoided 50's necks for years just because I've heard everyone say (or complain) that they're too fat & chunky for fast playing. But I recently got to play several LP's with 50's necks & they felt more comfortable to me than 60s necks. I found it even easier to play faster on them than 60's...

    Has Gibson always used cream colored plastics?

    I was looking at pictures of some original 50's era Les Paul's & most of them appear to have white pick guards, white switch plates & white mounting rings. Maybe it's a trick of lighting (or maybe the were photoshopped to look white) or did they just decide to use cream colored plastics later on?

    Guitar was professionally set-up last week, (fret dress etc) very low action & it's in excellent condition. I just prefer the way LP Classics feel. Swap for one in heritage cherry without snot inlays (& preferably with kluson tuners)

    Gibson SG Custom 1988 Showcase Edition, trade for other Gibson Custom model.

    Hey guys, looking to trade rather than sell my Gibson SG Custom Showcase edition 1988 for another SG Custom or LP Custom model. It's a great guitar, very unusual and kooky and extremely rare too, so I feel it'd suit a collector, which I'm not. UK Only.

    FGN NC LC-20 BLK should I get one?

    I'm curious to hear from owners of this guitar. Is it any good? The headstock and truss rod cover aren't really my cup of tea... but at least it's better looking than an Epiphone lol and the rest of the guitar has everything I want and need on it too. If I were to save for a few weeks more I'd...
