    I've been wanting one for a few years. Could never justify the bucks, and concerned about quality issues. The quality issues seem to be left in 2018, last week I decided "screw it, I'm going to agonize over this until I buy one, and I WILL buy one sooner or later"

    Nice. The 60s ones look awesome, unfortunately I can't do the slimmer necks they have.
    Enjoy!

    I've got a 2016 traditional H cherry B that was well put together & the 57 pups sound great.
    Anyway, I had GAS bad this past month for one of these in the Bourbon.
    I gave myself a talking to & slapped my wrist. So that settles that...for now. :oops:

    Here you go, head over to the rack/hangers, pick out a couple those "young man game" pointy or locking this n that on the top & bottom axes, look at those & say, "self, those relics from bygone days of my youth will finance my aging mans desires". :whistling:

    Thanks everyone.
    She's definitely a keeper.
    As I mentioned in 93studiolite's thread, this one and my '17 American Special, the more I play them, the more I like them.
    The LP is super comfy playing seated.

    That is one gorgeous LP...and it's in one of my favorite finishes! Best of luck with it.

    I have a 2013 Gibson LP Standard in Honeyburst and I was overwhelmed when I opened up the case. Pictures don't do these guitars justice! For me it was a "dream guitar" and I stumbled on a deal on a demo at Sweetwater. If it wasn't for that deal, I'd still be deciding if I should get one or not :).
