I pulled the trigger on a Gibson Les Paul Classic in the Olive Drab color. I kept on seeing this guitar around and of course would go look at the Gibson Online Store myself from time to time and drool over it. I went into GC and after jamming on a Classic as well as a Standard 60's and a Modern, switching mostly between the Classic and the Standard 60's. I found out that the neck is not as Slim as the Modern, so not super Slim and even though the Standard 60's is perfect, the Slim Taper neck on the Classic is not too slim for me to like it. I know that not every guitar even the same model is always exactly the same, so hopefully I get a nice one. Purchasing sight unseen from the Gibson Online store for a purchase is scary, I hope I am not disappointed like I was with my Gibson purchase from Sweetwater. I am so stoked and looking forward to this guitar. I think with the Zebra pickups, cream binding and binding over the frets really give this guitar a great look. I know that video below is a Custom re-issue, but that is what really got me stoked about this color and I think the Zebra pups look so much better on this guitar than one with chrome pickup covers. Part of me wants to put all Gold Appointments, but after looking at a lot of pictures, I think the Chrome looks great and I don't need to bling it out. I just want to play the shit out of it.
