I bought this online from Guitar Center(haven't received it yet) .It's 2011 Alpine White LP Studio with Gold Hardware. The Guitar Center ad said it was in "Great Condition" and it comes with a hardshell case.
The price was $549 so I thought it was worth taking a chance. What do you think?

Rosewood fingerboard, or Ebony? I'm not sure what year, the Alpine White Studios changed, from Ebony, to Rosewood boards?
If you lucked out, and it has an Ebony fingerboard, so much the better, for you! [thumbup] Congratulations!

Thanks Charlie! This one was made on May 11th 2011 so it was before the Feds raided Gibson so it may have an Ebony Fretboard. Have to wait till I get it to be sure I guess.

Nice. I have an '06 model that definitely has the ebony board. From the looks of it, yours does too. They didn't change much in 5 years eh?

Congrats, it's a nice one!

Also...great price!

Mine is an '08 (If I remember) and it's turning nice creamy yellow stored in it's case. After a year or so it developed a smokey tint where my arm rested, and the body edges developed a pink hue. I think it's the body filler migrating to the surface...nobody knows. The smokey and pink stain is not as noticeable now...or maybe I just ignore it and just enjoy playing it.

That is a great deal. Sometimes GC has some decent prices on used gear, just not at my local stores usually.

I see the yellowing (not noticeable in the pics however) and that 'smoky' tint on where my arm rests and the back of the neck, but no pink though.

Very nice.

That's a great combo Alpine white with Gold HW.

a closer shot of the fretboard would help to decide what it is..

the Deeman posted looks all of ebony

Agreed, but the ebony/dark fret board also adds to the look. The alpine white studios from like post 2012 or so looked bad with the light colored boards.

Remove the gold and dark fret board, it just doesn't look as good....to me anyways.

Beautiful looking Guitar!

Cheez, that's about the going rate for a used LP studio. You should check out your local CL and get one. [thumbup] [thumbup]
