    My first Les Paul!

    Looks really nice! Congratulations and I wish you lots of fun with it! :)
  2. Congrats on the new guitar! Personally, I'm a bit dissapointed they didn't include Gibson pickups for this model but instead, ProBuckers. Those do sound great (I have them on my LP), but for an anniversary "super high end" model, I expected them to make that extra mile when it comes to pups.
  3. I must say I'm kinda dissapointed they didn't include (since it's a high end + anniversary model) Gibsons pups, instead, they put ProBuckers. I mean, I LOVE Probuckers on my Standard Plus Top Pro but, to me, it seems this latest model is pretty much about looks while, on the sound department, they didn't really bother making that extra step? Or is it the pride, being Epiphone anniversary model, they thought it would be innapopriate to use Gibson pups? I wouldn't really buy this guitar as it would probably sound the same as my Plus Top Pro does (but with extra eye candy and golded hardware) which doesn't really price-wise, cut it for me.

    My biggest nightmare.. :D Anyway, I hope you manage to fix your guitar!
  5. The more I look at your guitar the more I think it has an usual but nice color. Certainly not a deal breaker for me.
  6. Thanks for the heads up! I for one, always look at the specific model by browsing thru multiple (different) photos and/or youtube videos. Only than I can tell if I really like the color or not.
  7. One thing I really hate about the Gibson is the fact that you can't buy a "pretty" guitar without spending a lot of dough. My Epiphone Standard LP Plus Top Pro looks absolutely stunning. Why the hell not have Gibson do the same for a lesser price? Hell, give me "fake" looking decorated Les Paul, I don't care as long as it's pleasant to the eye..instead, most I can afford is a "faded" version..which looks meh...yes, sound and playability ARE the most important thing but cmon..

    What a waste...

    ^^How hard is it to remove the zero fret nut?

    What a waste...

    Well, isn't that reason enough? Imagine buying a new guitar and it wears out after month of playing and than having to fix something that never should have been broken in the first place..pretty discouraging, at least to me.

    What a waste...

    All those 2015 models with brass zero fret nut..it's like, failure waiting to happen. I wanted to purchase LPM 2015 but because of the zero fret nut (made of brass) I decided not to..such a shame..what were they thinking?
  11. ^^Yeah..you'll do that for a month or so and then you'll just stop.. :D BTW, as for the buzzing..I believe I heard some buzzing on one of the Slash's live gigs. He was playing Anastasia on one of his double necks (acoustic) and you could sorta hear it when he was doing a solo (probably because he was picking it hard. Nothing major but it was there. And it it was kinda cool. Basically, it's a normal thing IMO (to certain extent of course)...
  12. ^^Oh ok..well, I wish you best of luck in fixing the problem as soon as possible...BTW, I'd first try get a replacement from Gibson rather than buying new one..
  13. I have ProBuckers on my Epi Standard Pro and, being well aware those may not be exactly the same as BurstBuckers, they do have sort of a "tight" sound..while my LP Tribute 70s (Gibby) has these Dirty Fingers pickups which are really loud and warm + the fact that it doesn't have any "fat" finish which would apparently choke out the sound, it has a very vibrant sound..(which I really like) Now, the Studio Faded is also pretty much "naked" but I'm not sure how warm and "mellow" are the BurstBuckers..but in all honesty, both are, IMO, great guitars and whichever I choose to go for, I'm pretty sure I won't be dissapointed. I can't try them out unfortunately (online order) but so far I had pretty good run getting my fat bottomed girls like that..
  14. All three LPs I have had some minor buzz issues but nothing major..it all depends on how important it is to you. Of course, major buzz should be addressed. The frets you're mentioning are actually normal for most LPs IMO..Now, if those buzz even when doing light strumming and if it's noticable through the amp, well I guess that's a problem..
  15. Ok. here comes the stupid question but: did you check the battery?
  16. I'm happy with mine on my 70s Tribute. I always bend the hell out of fresh strings before using them so they don't go out of tune easy.
  17. Reading all these zero fret nut posts, it suddenly got me thinking (or to be more precise, paranoid :D) what are the chances of Auto Tuner (Mini E Tune/Gforce) wearing out a normal nut? I have a Mini-E-Tune installed on my 70s Tribute, which is using a Corian-made nut. Anyone else thought of this? I checked my nut (...) and I couldn't see any wear on it..but then again, I'm no expert so...what do you guys think?
  18. ^^So you think the Tribute models have lower grade woods than the Studio? Interesting..wasn't aware of that..?
  19. The ones I have are already great guitars. It's just that I got the Lester bug (and financially ok) and just want to get another one, this time Gibson but with a bit nicer finish. There is no rational reason behind the purchase really..I just..feel the need. As to, what I like to play, classic hard rock, blues..yeah..that would be it. Wouldn't sell any of my current guitars, that's not an option..I am too possesive of them to do that.. :D As for the tone..as long as it warm and Lester-like, it's good for me..I just don't like "thin" sounding guitars (aka Fenders and the like)..and you know what? I often catch myself just staring at my guitars, how beautiful they are..sometimes I just enjoy looking at them and remembering the tones they can produce when I play them.. :) P.S. If I get a new one, it is most likely going to be a Gold Top. :)
  20. ^^Hey Rabs, that's a Vintage Sunburst, right? My 70's Tribute is in that color that's why I was aiming for either Faded Cherry (Studio) or Gold Top (Tribute). My Epi is in Herritage Cherry Sunburst so either worn cherry or gold color to add some divercity to my small collection. :)
  21. I'm torn between 50's Tribute: http://www.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/2016/USA/Les-Paul-50s-Tribute.aspx And Faded Studio: http://www.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/2016/USA/Les-Paul-Studio-Faded.aspx#LPSTWCCH1 I already own LP 70's Tribute and LP Standard Plus Top Pro (made by Epiphone). Now..the GoldTop looks really nice but it's a bit pricey for me..AND it appears to have similar pups as my 70s Tribute (high gain ones). The Faded Cherry Studio however, is not really a "looker" but with a price I can live with... The only reason I am considering the GoldTop is its looks (yes, I am THAT simple.. :D). I really like the beautiful AAA maple top on my Epi and if I was to buy another Gibson, I would like it to be a bit more than a "vintage" finish.. Of course, this is going to be ultimately my decision and I'm aware of that..but I was just wondering what do you guys think? :)

    Another fake

    I really don't understand why are people ordering fake Gibsons from China? If money is an issue, IMO, it would be better to buy a licenced higher-end Les Pauls made by Epiphone rather then throw money at fake copies..just my 0.2 cents. ALSO, Gibson seems to have lately toned down on the prices on some of the models (no eye-candy, stripped down versions but feel and play nice) so it's not like, you can't buy a decent Gibson for a decent price as well..
