    Gibson 2019 Models All Leaked On Its Own Website

    I work in website development. It's far easier to copy an existing website into a new one, rather than seed everything with new data from scratch. Just like those MSRPs are probably nothing more than across the board placeholders, so too could be the listed specs, stats, colors, and photos. I...

    Liar! That one is #4 of 6, so there can't be 7! ;)

    Robot guitar issue (Pickups)

    The poles are closer together on the neck pickup and spaced farther apart on the bridge pickup.

    Looking to buy a Gibson LP Traditional

    I'd stay away from 2015. Aside from the goofy 100th birthday script and hologram, it also had a wider neck and fretboard, zero fret nut, and g-force. Either look at pre-2015 Trads, or for 16 and up, sounds like you want the 'T' model over 'HP'.

    498T in LP Menace...different?

    498T should be in the 13k range. It seems more likely that you got something else with the SG.

    I'm just taking the seller for his word. If you got a problem with his ad, bring it up with him.

    NGD- Please help me identify my 'find.' Thinking GC underpriced this CS LP

    Well it's definitely a Class 5. I just looked at eBay completed auctions and there's only 2 recently, one went for $2499 and the other listed as having "some dings" went for $1650 - www.ebay.com/itm/Gibson-Custom-Shop-Les-Paul-Class-5-/253082203836

    Need,appreciate help picking LP Studio

    Nope, not by a longshot. Almost all the Studio Lites have ebony boards and they came in all different colors. Studio Metallic series of early 2000's had ebony boards and no inlays. Different runs of limited editions like the Studio Platinum and LP Menace also had ebony boards. There's actually...

    Possible Double Cut purchase... but I need info -

    What?!? It literally says: That's not a question of model, that's a statement of "I think it's real but I'm not sure because of these two things"

    WTB: Looking for some LP BFG hardware

    Hi all, I'm looking for the black nickel hardware from a stock BFG: the bridge (+ studs and inserts) and tailpiece (+ studs). Already have the tuners. If you happen to have a set, let me know. Or, if you have a BFG and have been thinking of swapping yours out for something else, now's your...

    Which Floyd nut size for Les Pauls?

    Ok, I have to admit I made a mistake, but had good reason to. Gibson's own spec page on the Axcess says it's a R4 nut, and I had no reason to believe the maker of the guitar would be wrong. But I took my Axcess nut off this morning, and stamped on the backside is BR3. So it seems it is the R3...

    Which Floyd nut size for Les Pauls?

    I'm positive it's the R4. Edit: I'm positive Gibson's own asvertised specifications for the Axcess says it's the R4, but my Axcess came with the R3.

    Solid Mahogany Les Paul?

    Taking a stab here, but are the strings on both guitars the same, and how fresh or newly installed were the strings on the Lester? Anytime I change from an old set to a new set on any of my guitars, I swear it's like night and day. Other variables could be nut composition, difference in the...

    What do you guys think of this Les Paul?

    I don't know for this one in particular, but I came across a different Custom with maple board a few years ago and it was new, and it was definitely not clear coated on the board. Just raw maple wood.

    Solid Mahogany Les Paul?

    Lots of nice mahogany tops in this thread. But going back to the OP, when comparing the woods tonally, maple should be brighter and mahogany darker, so I don't think your reasoning for the sound difference is correct.
