    New Gibson guitar day! First Gibson I've had since the 1970s. The 2020 Les Paul Standard '50s in Heritage Cherry.

    Good package.

    A box!

    Nice case. Both the cats in the previous photos are in the box.

    When I was a kid I used to dream of a Les Paul just like that with that finish. A real beauty. Can you believe I have never actually played a Les Paul? it's true. I've played 339, 335, 350 and a couple of SG but never a real Gibson Les Paul.

    That’s beautiful!

    I have the Goldtop, and I love it, but man, that’s a lovely burst! Nice flame!

    The cats are cool, too. (Jeez, when I bought my LP from Sweetwater, they only threw in a bag of candy. I knew I should have sprung for the “cat upgrade.”)

    The photos, due to their angle do not really show off the figuring. The flame is much, much, more extensive than the photos show and are perfectly book matched.

    It didn't even come with a gig bag? Harumph! A PRS comes with a gig bag!

    Awesome looking guitar. Congrats!

    Two cats? Whew! I thought the Mojo was so strong that it made the cat turn colors.

    Looks awesome. I am glad to see Gibson getting it together and putting out some good looking stuff for 2020. I am obsessing over Aged Pelham Blue for some reason, after seeing some of their offerings.

    I love the smell of nitro. It smells like cotton candy.
