  1. Awesome, thanks Pippy. Coming from mostly acoustic playing I'm a bit more used to wider necks. 57's sounded the best to me (vintage and smooth) it's cool to know they're that well regarded
  2. Hey, thanks for all the awesome responses you guys! All those look like great options. Didn't see these before. I'm definitely open and interested in the 2015 range - I noticed the same thing: great guitars that just happen to be unpopular. I noticed the 2015 Studio has Classic 57's. Anyone try one of those out? Thanks again!
  3. Hey guys, New here, looking to purchase my first Les Paul, ideally with a cap of $1000. Looking mostly at the used market now. I'm a hobbyist playing mostly bluesy rock. A little torn between a few models, mainly the 2016 Studio T and the Studio Deluxe III or IV. Would love a Trad Pro but those are pretty out of budget. I really dig that these models have coil-splits and the db boost is a nice perk. But mostly I'm comparing their pickups and I'm finding I'm really digging the more clear sound of 57's vs the 490's which I find a little muddier. Burstbucker Pros sound pretty cool too. I'm still learning the nuances of them all so any input on your experiences with Gibson pickups I'm happy to hear it. My ideal Les Paul would have: 57's (or similar) At least some weight relief Wine Red or Honey Burst Coil Split (Boost is a plus) No more then 3-4 years old Binding would be awesome but probably unrealistic I know I've got a lot of wants! But may as well aim high. Any input with these models or better ones would be awesome. Thanks a bunch! Best, Bryan
