New Classics are great. My 01 Standard is the one that got away. Letting it go was the worst move of my swapping journey.

Also, if I do go with a Classic, I’m gonna wait until like October. That’s when GC has that sale and the Classic is like $1799

thats my vote….new classics are better than anything on earth imho

Don’t know if theyll have red but they usually have a goldtop…which rules

I always go for new and classics…

however, this one caught my eye on reverb..

Lol, funny to see that here because that’s mine! Great, great LP with the 60’s neck. HOWEVER, I’m literally dying for a p-90s LP right now and something’s gotta give!

New Classic vs early 2000's Standard.

No question, the Standard.

2022 Ebony Classic. Best guitar I’ve ever owned over my 37 years of playing.

I owned a 2000 Standard for a while and I can say without hesitation I would take a new classic over it. Not that it wasn't a great guitar, but what they are putting out right now are simply superb. I love my 2022 -

The exclusive Olive Drab finish is just bonkers in person . And I found that adding covers to the pickups tamed that little bit of shrillness that the bridge pickup can have. Super smooth now but still has the bite. I also put on a brass Nashville bridge - just not a fan of the faux ABRs they've been putting on guitars as of late (I even took the one off of my '50s Standard).
