The best value in a Les Paul ever. I am floored by the feel and playability. It’s lightweight and resonant, and 100% Les Paul. I love the 490R/T set, but I was lucky to acquire a set of Jim Wagner Darkbursts for it.

Other than that I put a set of reflector knobs and thumb slicers on it, and I had a historic pickguard and poker chip that I put on if. Lastly I got out my Meguiars and polished it to a dull shine.

Other than the slim neck profile, I could easily believe that I was playing my R8. I don’t know if I just happened to get a good one, but from other testimonies on the web I tend to think that these are consistently great guitars.

Favorite LP ever is the Gibson Gothic with moon & star inlay at the 12th. Had one for 9 years. Sold it when I was homeless. Biggest regret of my life. (This isn't the exact one I had but it's the same model.)

This is the LP I have now. Epiphone Muse. SD jazz/JB. Almost got it all black, just needs tuners.

I have a few including a Christopher Scott husk yet to build. Have a JB Norm Burst but these two are currently in rotation. A Sweetwater AAA top Cherry Burst 60’s and a 2010 50’s Tribute

Both look great! Do you have a Standard to compare them to? I've always been curious about a Trib...
I don’t have a Standard, but my 2 Traditional’s compare very well to a standard, and my tribute plays just as well with the same amount of bite, just no binding or gloss finish, but my tribute’s maple cap looks a bit like the binding found on the higher dollar models..
Cheers

I've never had a Standard, though I did have a very nice 2018 Classic, obviously looks and feel wise there are differences as the Classic came with a much heavier nitro finish, full binding etc. The Studio feels the closest with its neck binding and gloss finish. The Tributes (I have a 2018 Goldtop also) feel different with the satin finish but playability and sound wise are superb and I don't see them as any 'lesser' of a Les Paul. I love the stripped down charm of them.

My 1983 “Lester” Les Paul spotlight special #168 of 211 made… It sounds as amazing as it looks

I had to sell off all my gear in 2020. I had a 2012 LP Classic Custom I had modded to look like the full spec custom.

Last week I finally managed to achieve a goal from 1998 and got myself a real Custom. It's the new 2022 70th anniversary Custom and my god I thought my Classic Custom was heavy!

Hey man, I’m almost the same as you! I’ve always wanted an lpc and after 20 years playing I treated myself to a 70th anny lpc.

I also have a custom classic that I thought was basically a Les Paul custom, but man I was wrong

Since everything with the Gibson logo is way way way out of my disabled and living on social security income bracket... My hat is tipped to the Epiphone '59 Les Paul Standard model... Burstbuckers, CTS pots... all the good stuff for about $3,000 less... works for me... and for the $5k-sh a nbew Gibby costs, I can have TEN $500 Epiphones... that's how I have fun...
