    NGD...My new 2020 R0

    Yessir! It really does make a big difference in my opinion. TO the point that it has me eyeballing a new LP which I do not need to be doing! :D

    NGD...My new 2020 R0

    Man I absolutely LOVE them using this smaller, original spec binding and how much smaller the nibs are. The nib actually blends into the fret end now rather than acting almost as an entire fret end cover. Plus the thinner binding just looks way more classy in my opinion. Ive never really liked...

    Nibs or No Nibs, which do you prefer?

    Nibs! Definitely nibs. BUT.. I MUCH prefer the tiny ones, like on the LPs with the thinner original binding, where the nib is really tiny, yet still there. Actually, I've never been a fan of the thicker binding at all. I'm actually glad they seem to have gone back to using the thinner stuff in...

    String Change Frequency

    This is has always been conflicting for me personally. More on that in a second. As for how often I change mine out... once the unwound strings lose that slick smooth feeling, or begin to feel kind of sharpish when fingering chords, like abrasive, I either replace them, or think about...

    2020's Gibson Les Paul Standard 50's finish issues

    Heh, I wish mine came with only those “issues”. You can certainly send it back, and you can certainly receive a lesser specimen thereafter. In other words, they all seem to have some common issues. Although some of those issues are more easy to forgive than others, so an exchange can actually...

    After years of painstaking buying and trying, many tens of thousands of dollars spent, I've finally found the best Les Paul... and it's an R8!

    Nice post. Read every word and enjoyed your story. For those that haven’t made the “journey”, especially those incapable financially of such lengths, I feel it provides hope that one can find a very nice LP without having to first get lost in all of the minutiae. Sadly, those depths exist in any...
