  1. I took the advice of the majority and didn't do the deal. I still have my LP Standard and Custom, I just added the red one to the arsenal.
  2. Here's the latest member of the collection. image uploader
  3. Well I didn't do the trade folks. I kept my guitars and yesterday bought my thjrd LP, a transluscent cherry red Traditional. I've always loved that colour!
  4. Well that's even more of a bargain then because you can pay a couple of hundred for a Gibson case, more for the brown ones. The Studios come with a hard case.
  5. Did it come with that rather clean looking case too? Regardless, that's a bargain I would have snapped up too.
  6. The R8 is brand new in a shop and therefore full RRP. I'd be getting trade-in prices for mine but ignoring that whole financial side of the equation, would ONE R8 be preferable to a LP Standard.and a LP Custom? What would you guys rather have in your collection? The two decent axes or the one stunner?
  7. Dilemma! What would you rather have? I currently have a white 2010 USA Gibson Les Paul Custom (9.5 outta 10 condition) and a heritage cherry sunburst 2019 Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s (10 outta 10 condition). I have the opportunity to trade BOTH of these for a brand new R8. I know the reissue is nicer than either of mine but is it nicer than having both of mine? It's nice having two LPs and I do use them both but the R8 is so nice! I just can't seem to make the call.
  8. The nitro smell gets old real quick. It fills my entire home and never seems to dissipate. Not a fan.
  9. Snap. Mine has a May build and I bought it in June! Stinks the place out and I'm pretty sure the hard case will never lose the smell.
  10. I'm cool with grain and natural imperfections in the wood. I just wanted to check that they weren't paint or nitro imperfections. The lower part around the tone pots particularly bothered me because one of the lines looks like scoring through the paint/lacquer or cracking.
  11. Yeah, lots of dust. I'm leaving the guitar out most of the time to lose that sickly nitro smell which fills my entire flat.
  12. Thanks. So the top is wood grain hut the bottom looks like someone has scored through the paint with a sharp knife?
  13. I have a query on flaws in the finish of my 2019 LP Standard. There are some lines running horizontally in the direction of the neck, top and bottom of the bodg but strangely not in the middle. Are they flaws in the maple top, or more likely flaws in the paint?
  14. It hasn't been fixed in decades so I rather doubt it.
