Hi all,

Today I purchased my very first Gibson Les Paul!
It sits along side my Gibson SG Standard, and my Fender AM Telecaster :)

I've only played 10 mins, and I already know which is the superior guitar. This thing VIBRATES under my finger tips like I have never felt a guitar do before. Sounds very full, and feels awesome in my hands.

Specs: 2007 Gibson LP Classic Antique, in cherry burst. Only modifications I see made by previous owner (all tasteful imho!):
-Addition of chrome covers to the '57 pups
-Black TRC, and
-Pointer markers on the knobs

The exact same modifications I would have made to this guitar, go figure!

Let's make this first post count... here are the pics so you now it happened! :naughty:
Better pics coming in near future for sure.

And one with Flash which really changes the color, but what can I do...

Thanks guys... I really love the binding on the headstock. I like a custom shop better, but hey, that's too rich for me!!!

Good choice!! I think that is the best looking Gibson personally. First one to really call out to me. Even though I promised to never buy another guitar after Slash Tobacco, that one may still have to become part of the stable......nice!!!!

I have the factory pickguard. I can't bear the thought of drilling into the wood. If there was another way of mounting it... hrmmm.... agh!!!

That's hot! Now slap on a pickguard and you're set!

I had the same issue. There's no way I'm drilling into my '07 Standard to mount the pickguard :)
