    Hi, buddies
    Today, I got a 2020 Gibson Les Paul '50s Standard in Tobacco-Burst.
    I am super excited to finally have a nitro finish guitar, and brand new to me 1 !!
    Pickups are Alnico II Burstbuckers.

    Congrats, it's a beauty! HNGD!

    How's the playability and overall setup? My past experiences with the newer Gibsons were very disappointing... hope you got a nice one!

    Hi, buddy
    The nut seems well-cut, and action is pretty low.

    I do plan to put 10.5 gauges strings cause I have big hands & the 9 gauges on it are a tad slender for me.

    Oh my that is a thing of absolute beauty!!! Tobacco Burst is one of my favorite Gibson LP bursts! Part of what I like about it is they stain the back rather than paint it black.

    Best of luck with it Ben!! I know you've been working hard toward this purchase! Enjoy!!

    I was not expecting that finish on the back of the guitar! Congrats on your guitar , I love the burstbucker pickups Great!
    PS If you ain't had a nitro guitar before be careful of some guitar stands, some types of rubber can eat into the cellulose finish and ruin it!

    That's beautiful!

    I have the 50's Standard in Gold Top, and I think it's a terrific guitar.

    That burst is gorgeous. And nice flame.

    That's one great looking guitar!!! Congrats Ben!!! Enjoy making some great music with it!

    I've got the A2 Burstbuckers (I think they're 1 and 2?) in my red ES-335 and they're really great. Enjoy it!!!
