I needed a backup for my custom shop les paul and ordered this blind from musix here in Switzerland. 2019 Les Paul standard 50s, so the neck is a nice size and not a slim taper 60s that I don't like. This is amazing, the first Gibson I've bought that you can take out of the box and gig. Kudos to Gibson for sorting out the QC. This is almost as good as my R9. I sold a few other guitars to fund this so I was hoping to get lucky, my expectations are exceeded. Wow, I'm seriously blown away.
