    I’d love to get a Wine Red 70’s Les Paul Deluxe with those cool mini humbuckers.

    Nothing wrong with Norlin Lp's besides those tiny frets.

    I had a 7 piece 78 Deluxe that just looked like crap. I kicked that one to the curb pretty quick.

    A five piece 59 reissue does sound kind of strange though.

    I have small frets on my red -335 and I am finding I really like them. A lot. I had been so used to jumbo frets for so long that these feel really good. I like touching the fingerboard.

    Dude!!! That thing looks killer!!!!

    This is so, so, true.. and boy.. have the guitar makers taken advantage of the new obsessive behaviour the internet has spawned.. made big money out of it too..

    99% of the stuff talked about today is tripe.. :rolleyes:

    I know a few guys that love them but my preference is larger frets.

    My 76 had those low wide frets with almost no crown to them. Felt the fretboard on those:)

    That’s what mine had on it when I got it and it needed a refret. I put larger fretwire on it just to avoid frequent refrets.

    I put 6105 fretwire on my 71. It'll last longer than me. LOL
