Now I'm a proud owner of a Gibson Les Paul Traditional, and this is my first Traditional and now I understand why so many preferred it over the old Standards with push pull and what not.
Its from 2017 and has an antique burst color.
Gonna be honest I was scared it wouldn't look so good because of the stock photos I've found online, but I pleasantly surprised!
It looks so much better in person!
It sounds amazing, plays like butter, and it fits me like a glove! Couldn't be more happy!!

Very nice. I've been looking at picking up one of these, what type of neck profile does yours have? Is it a smaller 50's shape?

That is a seriously nice guitar. Simple light burst, dark pup rings, no superflous plastic like pickshelf and plastic washer. Love it !

Antique burst ... the names they come up with :facepalm:

Digging the rustic-style top very nice!

I have a 2016 Traditional. It’s hard to go wrong with a Trad. Congrats- beautiful guitar in brand new condition. Perfection!

Well, I would say it's not a full 50's profile, it's more like a skinnier 50's profile

Very nice! I'm not sure if it's your lighting or photography skills but that's the first antique burst I've liked.
Those antique burst are kinda hot or miss, some look good and some just horrible! Don't have any idea why it is like that.

Thanks man!!
Sometimes I think they used to have a bucket of different name for the colors and pick a random piece of paper LOL
"I'm sure our customers would love a orange juice burst" Hahaha

Very nice, that's a great top! 2017 is the best year for a Traditional. Enjoy!
