Ive been on the casual hunt for my first Les Paul. I don't know what I'm doing, but have been casually and slowly learning the market. But it's a complex market I'm finding.

A 1992 model with a bigsby popped up near me that i'm thinking about. Seeking opinions on it.

I didn't see binding on the neck or body, and it's not the original TRC.

Yea, hold out for what you want!

And kudos for asking first :thumb:

This one is a touch out of my price range, but perhaps with a little time I could pull it off.
What are your comments on this one?
I am very drawn to it by the aesthetics...I just want to lick it.



pros/cons on the 2 vs 4 pots?

Is it the color or the year that makes it for you?

I'm wondering because there are 2 others on the same page for well under 2K.

More bang for your buck, and put you in budget.

i like the early 90's studio with an ebony fretboard but more in the $700-$800 range

you could sell the Bigsby for $100 or more maybe unless you really want it. ...case is a plus for some

the 90's sometimes bring a bit more than later models as alot of talk about 90's wood which has been debated to death//

i think it had more to do with quality control was better than later years....

all studios in my book are the best bang for the buck...get one ...or one dozen... :h5:

I like the flame and the double cut. Both from an aesthetic point of view.

I'm curious about the combined tone and volume pots. Going from 4 to 2 knobs, what are the pros and cons?

High end sports cars-never seen a guitar offer for high end sports cards before but ok.

'92 is my favorite year for the studios. I have two of them, and they both have one-piece bodies, do NOT weigh a ton, ebony fret-boards, and resonate like nobody's bidness! Great battle axes for stage and everything else. Additionally, they have natural relic-ing, which apparently is an upcharge nowadays.

:naughty:

The truss rod cover looks way wrong on that guitar. Is it even a Gibson?

I would definitely pass.

I appreciate your honesty, you clearly know very little about Les Paul guitars. Please post pictures here of any guitar you are planning to buy, the forum members are all too glad to help steer you in the right direction. We don’t want you to get ripped off.
