  1. What's more comfortable with Standard? Isn't neck profile the same?
  2. It was my thread, no idea why it was posted twice (same timestamp even), some glitch in the matrix or something ;-) This thread can be removed.
  3. I've noticed the same, the more gain the more pickups you hear.
  4. This is exactly what I was looking for starting this thread. I just wanted to know if there are any differences in build between these two (Tribute and Standard), for example higher quality wood for the Standard model, but I couldn't find any proof of that besides some post on other forum. Acutally I did that with the Tribute I had (which I had to send back) and 1992 Les Paul studio and to me: 1. Unplugged Tribute sounded better to me 2. On clean channel difference was very little if any 3. On overdrive both guitars sounded pretty identical Sure, that would be best, but I do not really have that opportunity, also my intention with this post was - since I really love the look of the 2017 Tribute FHB - do I need to sacrifice anything soundwise. Yes, the weight relief might be the thing in some cases. As I wrote before - quick test on clean and overdrive didn't give much difference, but there might be some other - for example sustain. Sure, purely theoretical question. Yes, I'm very aware of this :-) The problem here is that I can't compare Standard with Tribute just like that, because both have different stock pickups and since Standard pups are hotter I'd be drag to it more I guess :-) +1 to that.
  5. Sorry, I ment Les Paul Tribute with traditional (not high performance) specs.
  6. I know it's a controversial question but, hell, let me try. Is there a sound difference between Les Paul Traditional and Standard - given same pickups will be installed? Of course I'm not taking under consideration push/pull capabilities of new Standard models just pure full fat humbucker tones. In other words - is there any difference in woods, build etc. between these two?

  8. I'm asking, because I'm sending my 2017 Tribute back tomorrow - it had broken neck and now I'm thinking if I should go for the same or take 2018 ;-) Dilemma :D
  9. That's valuable answer to me. I also thought that these differences are minimal. Thank you Snorten :)
  10. Pickups are the same, string action, stop piece, bridge etc. can be adjusted, so that is not a problem. I can even replace the bridge. I'm just asking about things that I can't change once guitar is bought :-)
  11. Sure, if I will have that possibility :-) I do believe that I'll have to ask my shop to get me the one I want and just play it before I buy, there might be no option to test both at the same time though.
  12. I'm about to order Les Paul Tribute and I'm wondering (since it's going to be my first Gibson) if it's worth getting 2018? Soundwise - 2018 has no weight relief, does that make any difference in the sound/sustain? Gibson says weight relief adds to sustain. What's your opinion on that?
