  1. Maybe the pickup and/or pole screws are low on the treble side? Do they all have the same type and gauge strings?
  2. Haha! This may now morph into your favorite tool thread. I don't do any wood working but those look nice.
  3. No, that's legit. I'm way better with hand tools than Photoshop!
  4. My favorite is my R0: I won't say this one "got away" because that implies I regret it, but it is the nicest guitar I ever sold. It's a '16 Joe B. Limited:
  5. I have nothing against Joan Jett at all. It's juts that I wouldn't pay more for an artists name. Now, I did own a Joe Bonamassa guitar but I didn't do it for the name. I was also tempted once by a Jimmy Page Custom but I decided it wasn't worth it.
  6. Damn, I walked right into that one.
  7. Nice looking guitar (and no offense to Joan) but I wouldn't pay a penny more for her name on it, or anyone else's for that matter really.
  8. Unfortunately, you won't find a new LP Standard in white or red. If you have your mind made up on that then you will be looking at a Custom Shop guitar. The only one that I know of offered in white is the LP Custom. I have seen a couple '57 Standards in white that were M2M, but those were Classic White, not Alpine White. Also, neither of those are offered as LH. That means you need a M2M guitar. You can stop at Costco on your way and pickup a few sacks of rice and beans.
  9. OK. Here's a '19 traditional lefty. It's basically the same guitar as the new Original 50s. $2499 with a really nice top. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/LPTD19LHSNH--gibson-les-paul-traditional-2019-left-handed-heritage-cherry-sunburst?serial=190023558
  10. I haven't had the opportunity to play one of the new Originals but pauloqs above has, and he is the owner of multiple Gibson Historics and speaks very favorably of them. That speaks volumes. OTOH, another thing to consider is deals available on '18 and '19 USA guitars. I've seen some pretty good discounts on Traditionals and Classics now that the new collection is out. The problem you have (as you are most keenly aware of) is finding a lefty.
  11. Yep, that's what I was referring to. I don't know about LH models but I can't imagine they won't be coming. Gibson has been pretty responsive when I have posted a couple questions on their Facebook page. You should ask.
  12. I enjoy beans and rice just as much as the next guy, and I'm not trying to dissuade you from buying a Custom Shop guitar at all, they are magnificent, but I'd take a close look at the Original Collection LPs.
