Meh... Nothing being made on a production line these days is an "investment" of any kind.
Some signature models will hold their value better and maybe even increase, but for general stock, they are simply making too many, and price levels of new instruments will always place downward pressure on used models.
Late Arrival, Love the New Originals. The Standard 60's Slim Taper C neck is perfect for me, not to small and not too big. Here is my Sweetwater Exclusive Gibson Les Paul Standard 60's Lemon Burst. The Last picture shows I swapped out the ugly kidney tuners for Graph Tech Ratio Locking Vintage Tuners. I also took off the pickguard and poker chip leaving Elizabeth naked. (Sorry for the porn shot)

It happens.... just gives it mojo. Your triburst looks really good without the guard.Finally oiled the fretboard and removed the pickguard…to my surprise, there was some nice flame hidden underneath.
Unfortunately, while working on it, I wasn’t paying close attention and it also got it’s first scratch on the headstock where the string nicked into the finish. I guess it was inevitable after a year of owning, but still hurts. Luckily, it’s small and barely noticeable.
Thanks! True, it definitely feels like it’s truly mine now. Each scratch is a small memory.
Yikes! I guess the upside, that’s def a very memorable story and it’ll always remind you of your dog.Yep. My LP now has a nice ding on the top because it was leaning against the couch and my dog came over with a huge natural bone and just dropped it right on the guitar top!
Just collected mine! Made in aug 2020. Wishing the fretboard is darker but I'm impressed with the workmanship!
Yeah that’s oddly adorable, I love the dumb things my idiot dogs do . I just cleaned my new LP the other day and then later found that it was given a tongue bath by one of my dogs…Fortunately it isn't that big of a ding, but when it first happened I was like 'Reallllyy!!?' Now its just funny.
