Considering buying a used LP Standard. Are there any particular years I should gravitate towards or better yet stay away from?
Great answer! I was actually going to say either there are no bad years or good years or go with your answer. I really like what Gibson did in 2016 and the 2020 50s/60s are fantastic.2020 50s/60s....
dont own either but if I was going to buy A standard, those would be the years...
In all seriousness, I think it all comes down to personal preference. For instance, I prefer the more traditional fretboard width than the wider 2015 necks. I’ve met people, however, that much prefer the wider necks on the 2015 models.Nobody's going to bash on 2015's or Norlin's or Clown Burst's?
You're slacking MLP.
Jack-shit wrong with that period...I’m not a fan of the 08-18 Standards with the chambering and asymmetrical necks.
Beyond that you can find great examples from any era. I do think they made some really nice ones in the 90s though. But I’m biased — my number 1 is a 93.
