Either heritage or light cherry burst or white with black binding/gold hardware.

New toys...



The plan is to use the midi features in the ES-8 to control the Mobius, DD500 and switching for the JVM410H.

I've decided that I need a Les Paul as I've been dying to get one for at least 15 years, so I've set myself a goal of buying a 2017 Gibson Les Paul Standard, or if I can find a good second hand one with 60's neck I'd be keen on that too.
And yes I don't care about the other brands that make LP style guitars, or other so called better guitars at a similar price.
Just don't buy one without playing it for a bit. They would have to be the most inconsistent guitars on the planet.

Care to expand? I'm aware of the different neck shapes, but they shouldn't change much between the models (studio, trad, standard etc) for each year.

There's no way I'd order one online, but unfortunately I'm in Coffs and there's no good guitar shops here so I have to go to Melbourne or Sydney. I'll probably just bite the bullet and fly to Melbourne to go to Gallins since they're the importers.

You can play 5 LP Standards off the same rack and 4 of them aren't that great.

Strange considering the frets are levelled by some crazy machine on the standards...

I've got a big feeling there's a lot of hate towards Gibsons from people that haven't played many.

PLEK machines are still at the mercy of their operators. Gibson is a tradition for sure, but its not the same company who made the classics like Greeny.

Ive played many Gibbies in store, but ESP fretwork on Navigators and even the Edwards LPs is much more consistent.

I would argue that even the quality of some of the Korean guitars coming out these days (PRS SE, Champan, LTD and many others) are fantastic quality given the price. It all comes down to feel though. Some people go mad for the '59 necks but they're too fat for me. I was playing a Les Paul back in 2002 and it was just incredible, but I have no idea what model or year it was!
I don't believe the fucking glue has an effect on the tone though, or the paint. Some people are just mad.

Isn't the bridge on backwards?
