    Thank you.

    This one is truly one of the best guitar purchases I have ever made.

    Fully bound body and neck, no weight relief or chambering (solid mahogany body), inlaid (not silkscreen) logo.

    The only difference on these vs the normal Classics is it comes with a Richlite board and a Satin Nitro finish. And I have come to love both of those features. The high gloss looks nice but can be sticky sometimes. Not on this guitar, it has a chunky, satin finished, super fast playing neck.

    It is heavy though, mine comes in at 10.2 lbs. But I think it is worth it, a lot of people have been asking Gibson to release full-solid bodies on Les Pauls. They are now doing just that.

    And the AA Flame Maple Top doesn't hurt a thing. :)

    I know this is a Fender(ish) forum, and yes those are 3 Strat's in my avatar, but nothing beats a Gibson, IMHO.

    My Les Paul is MY #1


    That guitar you have there, is stunning. I love it. Congrats on your NGD!!!

    I just picked up the same one at our guitar center grand opening last night. Brand new for 1199. First time playing p90s and after a love/hate with every les Paul I’ve every player.... it seems p90s are what I was looking for. Can’t wait til my day off tomorrow. Played 4 different lps at the store and this one had the best feel, quality etc.
