Hey there. I’m new here so please don’t rake me over the forum coals. Long story short. Used to own a ‘06 ish Les Paul Standard. I literally gave it away. It was awful. This was in ‘06. Fast forward a closet full of Teles and Strats later and I desperately want a Les Paul. I don’t know where to begin. I don’t want any gimmicks or what not. (Robots, active pickups, coil tapping, locking tuners) what year? What neck profile? My hands are used to Fender “modern C” and their “deep C”. I have about 2500 to spend. I’ve read 2013 and current Les Pauls are good. I’m lost. Any tips would help. Thanks!
