    Looking for info on how to get a replacement certificate for my 2003 57' custom shop gold top. Was bought from new by myself in 03 at guitar centre and I read on lespaulforum that gibson can reissue a certificate if I post on here...?

    Any help would be appreciated :)


    Certificates are not reissued. You will have to contact Guitar Center to see if they have found the original certificate.

    A "massive" neck is going to add weight. I would say that you may be looking for a chambered Les Paul. I have had several of the CR7's with necks as you describe. HUGE. The year and the R number has really nothing to do with the neck profile as each are hand formed and certain dealers have ordered different profiles. i once had a CR that had a neck smaller than an R0. Looking for a specific neck profile without trying it yourself is probably going to not have the results you want unless you know the salesperson and they know what you like. The biggest neck profile that normally comes out of the Custom shop is on the Lee Roy Parnell goldtop. Try checking one of those.

    The value is about the same new or used. If one plays better or fits you better, go with that one. No matter which one you get, you will always think the other one could have been better. If they are equal, get the one that looks better to you.

    Hi CR9, I noticed that you are into Chambered LP's. 2 of mine are chambered. The 1997 LP Elegant Butterscotch is a std custom shop model. The 2004 CS Zebrawood is a custom order one-off. According to Gibson, it is based on a LP Standard with a chambered body. It also has by far, the fattest neck of all my Gibson's. Thanks for the tip on the JA site. I contacted Chris A. and will be regi...
