Love me some Les Pauls.

1990 Standard that I'm absolutely in love with. The wood grain, the checking, the playability, the pickups, everything is exactly what I want in a Les Paul.

I have a wine red studio from 2004, too. I sadly don't have any photos to hand right now though.

This thread couldn't have been posted at a better time. Like @budda, I've been GASing for a LPC for months on end. The recent price hike pushed a new one above what I wanted to pay, but used prices have been insane too!

All that said, I just snagged this one second-hand from the original owner at a good price. It was from their Mod Collection. Has a VOS finish that I'll probably buff out. Comes with a Dirty Fingers in the bridge.

I can't resist. I get asked a lot every time I post it so:

1975 Gibson LP Custom
Some sort of PAFs
Refretted this year with SS medium frets
Dad was original purchaser in 1976, I got it in maybe 1997 or so. 25-26 years ago View attachment 110346
I love Norlin era LPCs. All of the quirky specs are cool to me. Especially the volute.

Black knobs on that one at once haha
Haha it's funny you mention that...I told my wife I'm getting black knobs and she was against it. She doesn't play so it doesn't matter what she thinks :)

Also ordered some Grover locking tuners with keystone pegs.
