Glad I found this place. This is my 3rd LP after having a 2013 trad pro and a 2017 trad. Third time's a charm! 2021 Standard 50's. I changed out the plastics for PLT rings and pick guard and Creamtone poker chip. Didn't know till after what a nightmare it is getting items from CT but I was lucky and got it in a couple days. Loving her so far!

Nice Standard. I prefer the original plastics myself.

An updated collection photo - I think all three of these fall within the 'USA Originals' category? All are very nice - no complaints here!

2020 Gibson ES-335 Vintage Burst
2020 Gibson SG Special in Pelham Blue
2019 Gibson Standard 50s Wildwood in Dark Cherry

Great topic! I own a 2019 60s unburst, but I did some upgrades, so it's not original anymore, but I think the upgrades benefit.
I swapped the tone and volume knobs with the knobs from my 1998 Classic 60s LP, so the unburst gets a more 50s look. I also put historic correct plastic parts on it. The pickguard and M69 pickup rings are from Crazy parts, Germany.

Although the guitar is beautiful from itself (wow, that flame is so hot) , I disliked the 'plastic swirly' inlays, so I changed them to historic correct ones. Well... Now she is perfect! She's my number one at the moment and good chance it will be for long. So the pics are some with the old parts and some are with new parts.
