I think this one is the endgame for me.
8.5lb, neck's comfy with no shoulders, moderate aging by Murphy, dark smooth fretboard, and... TONE (glassy, deep, resonant, clear, bla bla bla I'll just share a demo with you guys!).
Got it from a really cool local collector!
If this already exists, I apologize in advance.
I am about to pull the trigger on a 2018 58' Historic Reissue VOS (pics and details to come:applause:). The last reissue that I purchased was from 2014 (an r9, back when it was simple, reissue = reissue). I understand in 2015/2016/2017 things...
Finally found a Les Paul and it's a beauty! Exactly what I'd been looking for without the custom shop price tag. It's a 2015 limited edition Japan Les Paul traditional heritage cherryburst. The pick ups are amazing, build quality is great minus a couple pointy fret ends but nothing I can't fix...

2015 Gibson Les Paul CS8 (R8) 1958 Reissue Sunrise Tea Burst VOS
Killer guitar. Honestly the best guitar I've ever had or played. But for what I do and the overall tone that I'm after, a Les Paul isn't the answer.
