  1. Overture

    Post Your Historic Bourbon Bursts!

    Here's my 2016 R8. Modded with Bareknuckle Cold Sweat pickups, shorter USA spec pickup rings, Kluson Revolution tuners, and Jescar 47095 stainless frets.
  2. Overture

    Show me some goldtop LPCs please!

    Seems like an opportunity for a fairly unique M2M guitar. I mean, if ya got $6-7k to spend.
  3. Overture

    Dressed up my 50s Standard HCS

    I generally prefer black plastics to cream. I would go covers off the pickups, though.
  4. Overture

    les paul studio 2016 alpine white yellowed?

    Most folks buy white Gibsons because they turn yellow. At least that's how it seems to me.
  5. Overture

    Bought a lemon burst 59 reissue vos brand new and it has red stain bleed , are they all like that

    It's normal. The dye on my R8 has even ran into my other guitars at this point. I have red staining on my white custom from sharing a stand and from my clothes.
  6. Overture

    What LP did you sell that you wish you had not , and that you sill think about.

    I've gone through wayyyy too many fiddles in my time playing, I should have 20 guitars but I only have 5. That 07 Custom was special, and I only sold it cause I was young and needed money at the time. I know the guy who bought it from me and have tried to re-buy it but he wont let it go, which...
  7. Overture

    What LP did you sell that you wish you had not , and that you sill think about.

    I used to be this way about my 07 Custom. Right up until I got my 2020 Custom. I don't miss any of my past guitars now. The ones I have are by far the best I've owned.
  8. Overture

    How Did You Improve Your Rig/Tone in 2021?

    I practiced more lol. For recording I’m using the Neural DSP SLO 100 sim and it’s amazing. By far the best recorded sound I’ve ever managed.
  9. Overture

    NGD: ‘50s Tobacco goodness!

    Congrats! Tobacco is definitely my favourite burst finish and my next Lester will hopefully have it.
  10. Overture

    NGD: Dream R8 with a Ding!

    Crap, that's gorgeous. Congrats!
  11. Overture

    If you had 10,000 dollars to buy any Les Paul and you had to spend it all on only 1, what would you buy?

    Apparently it is. I can't remember which thread it was in but someone posted an article from a former Gibson employee and he mentioned that the white was a pain to work with.
  12. Overture

    What's your Les Paul neck preference?

    The current profile used on the 59' reissues seems to be about the sweet spot, for me. I'm not overly fussy though, my R8 has a an almost comical sized neck, my custom is slimmer but not a slim neck by any means, and my 00' Standard has I think what they called a 60's neck at the time.
  13. Overture

    Because why not

    2 of my 3.
  14. Overture

    If you had 10,000 dollars to buy any Les Paul and you had to spend it all on only 1, what would you buy?

    68' reissue custom M2M with a 59' reissue neck profile, maple neck, Gotoh SG301 locking tuners, bone nut, smaller USA size pickup rings, in Tobacco Burst. Then I'd put a set of Bareknuckle Nailbombs in it.
  15. Overture

    Customs vs Historics which one is the better guitar?

    I have a 2016 R8 and a 2020 Custom...the custom is my #1. I couldn't care less about historical accuracy, I change out tuning machines/pickups/nuts to what I generally prefer anyway. More about build quality/playability to me. I've had my R8 re-fretted with stainless steel frets as well and it...
  16. Overture

    Are 68' Custom Reissues the only solid body Customs?

    Fairly certain the normal Custom is the only one that is weight relieved, in the current line up. (Excluding axcess stuff)
  17. Overture

    2021 R4 Goldtop Truss Rod Question

    This has been my experience with other high end/hand made instruments as well. I had a PRS single cut and a Music Man JP6 that were flawless in every way from a manufacturing point of view...but they lacked the soul of my Gibsons
  18. Overture

    2008 Les Paul Custom neck question

    I think the long neck tenon got added to the regular custom when Ebony came back as a fingerboard...but I might be wrong. Maybe it was when they switched to richlite or somewhere in between.
