Hi everyone,

I'm new here to the Gibson section of the forum, having only posted in the Epiphone section previously.

I just got back from a 2 week holiday in Japan, and my amazing girlfriend got me my first ever Gibson as a 40th birthday present.
I am super lucky as she already got me an Epiphone Elitist 66 Custom Riviera only a short while ago!

Here she is, a second hand 2016 Standard Historic 58 Les Paul VOS in Ice Tea.
I just can't believe how great this guitar is, it just blows my mind!
I love it!

Just wonderful [thumbup]

Sometimes it seems that all the best women (and most of the best guitars) are spoken for these days.

Thanks all for your kind comments.
This is the first Les Paul I have owned, so I am entirely new to this style of guitar.
I look forward to learning a lot about them here on the forum.

An R8 is something special and the perfect way to get into a real Gibson guitar. I have one too, although mine is a plain top. The problem I have now is I'd like to add to my collection of electrics but nothing else is as good (that I've played).
