    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. 15901504126885953890449445488851.jpg

    Congratulations, that's a beauty. Now stick some P90's in it and you'll really HAVE something!

    Kidding, kidding, kidding. However you like 'em, a gold top Lester is a classic.

    These are really great guitars. I got the P90 version a few months ago. If I had to go down to just one guitar that would be it

    You're going to love it. Those are 57 Classics I think ?

    Anyway, here's mine, we have brother guitars it seems

    Super! What a good feeling... letting go of a few other guitars to step up to such a good looking and classic instrument.
    Enjoy it!

    I've never tried any BB pickup . I have 57s in my other LP and my 339. But with that being 50s spec I was thinking the Classics

    Congratulations! My Standard 50s has exceeded every expectation. I’ve had it since last October, and the honeymoon shows no sign of ending. Play the living daylights out of that sweet axe!
