That is a beauty! Looks very vintage already, even without any playing wear.

That's a nice burst pattern on that. Normally not a big fan of cherry sunburst but that one came out nice.

I've been all over the place regarding the potential purchase of a Les Paul (my few posts here reflect that), but I finally found the one.

2020 Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s Heritage Cherry Sunburst.

























I love the fact that it's not too flame-y and predominantly more like a plain top.
I say predominantly because she has double personality and all of a sudden goes from a bourbon-ish plain to a flame-y cherry.

Anyway, this is it. I finally have the thing I've been wanting, on and off, for almost 25 years.
I think it is just right. The colour I love and not too in your face flame. I think
as time goes on the flame will develop also. Mine has. Enjoy it I hope she has the best of sounds for you.

She’s a stunner!
HNGD!
Do let us know how the neck feels and the feeling overall once you’ve got to know each other.
