    Headstock Shape

    Hello there! I just bought a Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s and noticed that the headstock is less "pointy" than it should be. Is it a factory defect or it's just something that happens given the fact that most of the guitar is basically crafted by hand? Nothing serious, just want to know for...

    Epiphone Les Paul Silver Sparkle Standard

    Here’s one of the oddballs of the bunch - a silver sparkle epiphone les Paul. It’s one of the heavier guitars in the collection as it pertains to weight. It has a neck that I would refer to as a baseball bat - and it had a small break by the nut that was roughly repaired. When I bought it on...

    Surprised at how great the EMGs sound!

    I finished my Les Paul Standard Re-Do with the black hardware and accessories, and it got me wondering what my Stratocaster would look like if I did something similar to it, so I went for it. In the process, I installed some EMGs in my Strat. It had been so long since I had played with active...

    Align pickup ring on Les Paul Standard

    Hi everyone! I recently got a 2005 standard but has the neck pickup ring misaligned with the neck. Neck is straight as an arrow, so I guess that the issue comes from the plastic ring. Now comes the noob question: Is there any way to fix that without having to drill new holes? The guitar...

    Gibson Les Paul Standard 50’s Tobacco Burst 2019

    If anyone was ever curious as to why the new tobacco burst/ dark burst Les Pauls were “black”, they’re not. I was actually really happy to figure this out. All of the research I’ve done, always showed them being a dark reddish brown. That’s exactly the color they are, you need to put the guitar...

    Finish checking or neck crack?

    I recently bought a used Epiphone Les Paul Standard and when I got it home I noticed a small crack running along the neck joint and along where the fingerboard meets the body. Wondering if it's a finish crack or a crack in the wood, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Did anyone notice this on Slash's Instagram Page? 50's style Standard - NEW

    Claiming to be a new Les Paul Standard 50's style stock? On Slash's twitter feed/instagram. Looks like a modern day traditional with maybe a change in pickups? Maybe a sign of things to come in the USA lineup or a misquote?

    Production Numbers: 1971 Les Paul Standards

    I know that there were very few custom ordered Standards before '74. They're almost all Deluxes which have been modified. Even the few that are verifiable are still hard to be certain about. A friend has a '71 Standard that looks entirely legit. Years and years ago, I remember a discussion...
