  1. Hi to everybody I recently got my first Les Paul Standard. It's something I have promised myself since I was a teenager and now I'm 50 it seemed like the time to make the dream a reality. It's a new 60s unburst Standard and I love everything about it. It was a long wait but it was definitely worth it!
  2. Good day all, I recently picked up a 60s les Paul standard and had a few questions. The guitar I originally purchased was identified as having a bad neck pickup. The tech realizes the problem as he was setting it up for me. I swapped it out for another 60s les Paul and have a few questions. First off the pickup selector switch was loose so I had to tighten that up. Also the neck isn’t completely flush where it runs up against the neck pickup is this normal or ok? Lastly when looking at the guitar from the side I can see the nuts holding on all the knobs except for the neck volume knob. Are these things I need to worry about or are they fine to ignore? The guitar seems to play fine but I just want to make sure what I got is okay before it’s too late to return it and exchange it. Thanks for your help!
  3. First off, I am a drummer but love to play guitar and some bass too. But I could really benefit from the opinions of other guitar players or Gibson enthusiasts. I have always wanted to own a Gibson but never had the extra coin to spend. Or so I thought until I saw a used Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded T from 2016 with a price tag of 649 Canadian dollars (roughly 500 American dollars). I couldn't believe how much of a bargain it was especially since it was in almost new condition. I bought it without even playing it, which looking back on it was kinda crazy. I am not disappointed however. It looks and sounds and feels amazing. It has a much bigger neck than my Casino but you get used to it. I did some research and wanted to compare this Les Paul model to other models. I knew the one I had bought was ultimately the least expensive Les Paul you could buy without resorting to an Epiphone. After doing some research I was pleasantly surprised. I found that this guitar had all the guts and essentials that the Les Paul Standard had. The main differences were in finish (Faded T has a satin nitro finish), lack of binding and different nobs. Other things that Gibson will often change to save costs on their less expensive models would be pick-ups and a different neck material (maple necks are cheaper than mahogany necks I am told), but my Studio Faded T has Burstbucker Pros and a mahogany neck, a combination that doesn't really seem to exist in less expensive Les Paul models. A lot of Studio models have a maple neck or different pick-ups than the Standard such as the 490R and 490T or 498T. So my question is did I stumble upon a hidden treasure? A diamond in the rough? Could it just be that the 2016 Studio Faded T though low on the price tag is actually super high in value? I am especially interested in hearing from other owners of this guitar.
  4. Hi Guys, I own a Les Paul Studio, alpine white with gold (gilded) hardware. Over the years, though I've tried my best to keep it in good condition, the pickups, saddle and bridge have become faded / tarnished. Here's some pictures: imgur link.. I'm not sure, but I think 2 things are going on. The gold is getting rubbed off, especially notable at the top of the pickups (near the low E) which is where my hand usually rests, obviously. There's some sort of dirt/oxidation building up. I seem to be able to remove that by rubbing it hard. Does anyone have any experience with this? What's going on, and how can I restore the hardware into it's original state? Thanks in advance!
  5. Hello all! I just purchased a brand new 60’s Standard in Bourbon Burst from Sweetwater and was waiting for one to come in with a nice flame. I am absolutely elated! This really does not matter, but I just wanted opinions. Would you consider this an AAA top or just a nice AA top? Generally triple A’s have a very tight flame, but the flames on mine are pretty pronounced. Thank you! ~Jordan
  6. I play and produce for a living and happily own more than a dozen great guitars, each has its own character and can offer me something different on different sessions and backing up different people. I have a great SG and a V, along with Teles and a Strat and all kinds of things, but I have actually never owned a Les Paul. I own a studio and there are ALWAYS new things to be buying in the pro audio world, from mics to pres etc, so I don't think I can justify a major vintage LP purpose (though I would love a late 60's 3-pickup Custom). I'm looking at a couple LP standards from the early 80's. They all seem to have Tim Shaw humbuckers in them and at this stage they are past the point of the sandwich body. My gut is telling me to spend the extra money on something from this era as opposed to something from the 90s or 00s, but the values seem to be pretty varied. A used item is only worth what someone will pay for it so - what would YOU pay for a reasonable-shape early-80's LP? Or, can you give me a good reason to stay away from these guitars?
  7. I have 50th Anniversary Les Paul LE that I got as a present a while back. I´m considering selling it and was wondering if someone could help give any advice on whats a reasonable price to ask for. It has a pair of Seymour Duncan black double humbuckers (I sadly dont know exactly which ones they were not put in by me) but everything else is original. Any advice?

  9. I have a Epiphone e-series nuclear Les Paul that may be one of a kind. After days of research I cannot find another nuclear LP with the classic “clipped open book” style headstock. Every other example ever features the e-series “dove wing” style with the big E printed on it. I checked the serial number and it was made in the unsung Korean factory in June of 2001, it is production number 0474. Has anyone ever found a E-series LP like that before? if people seem interested, I’ll post a vid and link on YouTube. thanks for any info/help
  10. Need help with this one. Had my Les Paul stolen that was signed to me from slash and need input on where to start. Have a police report but never had a serial. I've done the usual Craigslist and Facebook stuff but looking for ideas or avenues to take. Sheldon
  11. Ciao a tutti, sono nuovo in questo forum ma vi leggo da un po'. Da qualche mese mi è balenata l'idea di acquistare una Les Paul r8 e vorrei chiedervi qualche info a riguardo: che differenza c'è tra quelle con il certificato "arancione" e quelle con il certificato "a libretto"? a parte l'anno di produzione ovviamente. Per quanto riguarda i prezzi dell'usato noto che difficilmente si trovano al di sotto dei 2900/3000, come mai? sto cercando di capirne di più e ovviamente accetto suggerimenti. Grazie in anticipo!

  13. So, lil bit ago i bought a 2019 Gibson Les Paul Premium Quilt Ocean Perimeter Guitar. It was new and i love it. As new ir came with the usual case candy, gibson multi tool, cleaner cloth, care guide. What it was missing however was the Set up/Final Check photo that has come with most other Gibson's i bought new. I was kinda bummed that it didnt cause i actually thought "huh..... that pretty awesome gibson does this" when i got my first Gibsons and honestly had excitement for it when i got my others. Idk guess its kinda like a baby's first photo kinda thing xD Anyways i was bummed but cut my losses until i saw this video https://youtu.be/Qi3-D7N31eo and the what im guessing is the plant ceo, the same plant my guitar came from btw, says that they keep all those photos on file and could send one out if say a customer ever lost theirs...... and thus i got excited and instantly contacted customer support through email...... 2 weeks ago..... multiple times..... and tried calling but no answer....... so i ask this Am i just screwed xD does Gibson Customer Support Just not exist xD i wouldnt even be mad just to get a "nah we cant do that my dude" cause atleast then id know they actually READ the damned thing i sent in. Its rather concerning.... what if i actually had a real issue with my guitar....
  14. Need help with this. Saw this on the market place, price is too good to be true. Is this a fake? https://imgur.com/a/iY0Sy5b
  15. Does anyone know what the stock's strings in Les Paul Tribute DC Bass are? And any recomendated hardcase for this shorty ?
  16. I have been playing on and off with my Ibanez GSA 60 with a very small Marshall amplifier. I used it to get used to playing chords, chord changes, strumming patterns and a very few songs. I recently for a Yamaha THR 10 V2 amplifier so that I can use it to play songs with some jamming sessions from my mobile phone. Since I'm new to this THR amplifier from Yamaha, I tried to follow some settings that I got from some Youtube videos hoping that I can get the same sound out my my Ibanez, but it was not. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong or is my guitar not capable of! But nevertheless, I have been contemplating now to get a better serious guitar that sounds good and is of a better quality tone wise. I have listened to a few videos on Gibson LP and I'm interested in trying them out, but just like any other beginner into the LP's, I'm confused as to which ones I should be looking into? My understanding is that there is the Studio, Classic, Traditional and Standard though I'm not sure what the exact differences are between these variants. I would mostly be playing blues and jazz kind of music and the goal is definitely not get into playing with any band, but just be able to play a few songs and jam along. Could anyone please run me through the LP variants and suggest me where I should start. There is no hurry for me to get this one asap, but since I will be spending more on a LP, I want to make a conscious decision, spend lots of time trying out different variants and with the suggestion from the forum, get the right one that I can keep and play for long. What I would be very much interested to know between the LP variants is: Are the differences between the variants is just in the cosmetics like flame top, binding, gloss finish etc? This one here for example., looks like a bargain, but what I do not understand is that if it is a Studio or yet another totally new variant? https://www.thomann.de/de/gibson_lp_studio_tribute_2019_sit.htm?utm_source=idealo&utm_medium=psm&utm_campaign=idealode&offid=1&affid=229&subid=idealode
  17. Gibson CS 60th Anniversary 1957 Les Paul Standard Reissue Gloss Gold Top. Guitar is in perfect shape, comes with all the case candy and the vintage spec case of course. $3700 is fair, the cheapest I have found this particular guitar is $4400, and it keeps going up in value. One of 60 made for the 60th Anniversary of the original 57 gold top. Let me know if this is not the place to post. Thanks. Located in New Jersey.
  18. hi everyone, need an help to identify this guitar (for which i have also the model number) it says LPSFHSCH1 it's a 2009 studio, but i wanted to know the specs before going to try her. is this a faded, worn or a 'standard' studio one? what kind of neck (i prefer the thinnest ones)? weight relieved or a chambered? (it's about 3,7 kg so i think it's in the light side of lp) here's some shots. thanks, my friends best regards!
  19. Hi! It's my first post on this forum after completing google, searching for my issue. I bought the Les Paul Deluxe Player 2018 Satin Vintage Sunburst with mini-humbuckers last year and it's an awesome guitar. Last week I encountered some weird static noise during a gig when I moved around on stage. When I rubbed the guitar against my body (walking) or when I touch the back of the body (more noticeably when I brush my hand across the plastic cover for the volume and tone controls) I get this weird static/scratchy noise. The static sounds like a broken cable crackling, but I've tested with different cables and with the plastic cover off. Noise is still there. I've tested brushing my hand over the back of the guitar and the static noise can only be heard where the electronics are. There's no static noise from the front of body. I've looked inside the cavity for volume and tone and everything looks good, no bad wiring or anything that seems out of place. I also checked the jack input and here everything seems to be okay. Volume and tone pots are placed on a print card. 1. Have you encountered this before? 2. Do anyone have a fix for this? I'm don't have the best guitar tech knowledge, so if you reply I hope you cold keep it "simple-stupid". Here's a link to youtube to see for yourself: Youtube video *not that fluent in English, so if you need me to elaborate I'll do my best.
  20. I recently bought an Epiphone Player pack with a Les Paul Special II-LE for christmas. It worked fine on day 1. But the second day, catastrophe struck. The cable was the first problem, it wouldn't stay in the jack. I had to buy a seperate cable! Problem #2 (noticed later) the tone knob had somehow gotten desoddered. I had to take the guitar to a music store to have it resoddered. And to top it all off, it did not come with the chord sheet promised on the box.
  21. Hello Everyone, I have a L-6S that was passed down to me from my grandfather. After several years of playing it I would like to restore and replace some of the parts. Mostly replace the pickups, pots, and wiring. Everything on this is still the original equipment and other than what I just mentioned all is in great shape. I'm wanting more specifics on this brand if possible. I'm unsure of the exact year but I have the serial number. Also, one if the pickups has November 197X on it. So I'm almost there! Any suggestions on replacement parts would also help me out. I've attached some pictures as well, however having to resize them didn't improve the clarity. Thank you all.
  22. I got a 2018 les paul classic with grover tuner pegs. I was wondering what would be the best way to go for swapping them out for the deleux styled tuner pegs ?
  23. 1st off I know it is not an actual Gem series, however I have recently been been told that this guitar is "Rare & Highly Sought After". I purchased this guitar of a great fellow named Phil back in Nov. 2017. My son was looking to learn guitar & I wanted to get him a quality guitar. Of course I chose to buy a Gibson Les Paul. When a Gibson collector asked about a post on one of my old forum blogs (not this forum). He told me it was one of the rarer studios. All I know is it is a '98 Studio Emerald Green, using leftover Paint from the "Gem" Series and allegedly only a very few were produced. My curiosity peaked, so I am seeking any information I can get so why not check here on the GIBSON forum as I will probably get the most accurate authentic information. Thank you in advance for any help in this matter. 😎 See below
  24. What is the correct size Allen wrench that should be used for the Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro-II Truss Rod Nut? Please don't say 4 mm because 4 mm is too small. Matter of fact, here are the ones I've tried that are "close" to fitting with their results. * 4 mm - the suggested size from what I can find - Slides all the way in, but has about 30 degrees of play. Too much play that I will not risk trying to rotate the truss rod nut since that will strip it out. I can feel the the key slide in to the hex part so I know it is in there. * 4.5 mm - goes in to the center of the nut where it is round (see photo below), but it will NOT go in to where the hex part is. This is too big. * 3 mm - way too small, turns freely when all the way in. * 1/8 Inch (3.175 mm) - way too small * 9/64 inch (3.571875 mm) - way too small too - turns but catches slightly * 5/32 inch (3.96875 mm) - too small too. Catches but still a lot play like the 4 mm * 3/16 inch (4.7625 mm) - way too large * 11/64 inch (4.365625 mm) would be the next size larger than 5/32 but they do not make that size (I've searched for hours). I've also seen this size referred to as 4.4 mm on a few Allen Wrench charts. Some charts "claim" this is a valid Allen wrench size, but I'm guessing it has not been made for decades. The next 1/64th step up from that would be 3/16 which is too large. I've checked the nut to ensure that it was not stripped or rounded, and the edges do look straight and smooth. I've included a photo, which was not that simple to illuminate and it looks kind of grainy due to zoom factor. But I think its clear enough to show the hex edges are clean and not stripped/rounded. Is there a such thing as an odd (non-standard) sized Allen wrench that is actually used to make the adjustments? If so, who sells them and what would be the proper size that they would go by? I've wasted at least a good 6 to 8 plus hours trying to figure this out and at this point I would not be too surprised if this may be an one-off anomaly. Thanks greatly for any and all help that you, or anyone else, can provide, RB
  25. Hello everybody, I´m playing e-guitar for about 2 months now (actually 10 years, but more was more of an on/off thing). Until very recently, I played on a "cheap" Yamaha e-guitar, which now sadly stopped working. Now the Les Paul is a guitar I always found cool (since Slash plays it in Sweet Child´o´mine and that was the first song I learned), and also I read somewhere that the strings are a bit further apart than on other guitars. This actualy helps me because the tip of my fingers is... kinda fat, so i often have problems when playing multiple strings that I accidently touch the other ones. So my Questions: 1. Do you recommend the Epiphone(!) les paul to me? 2. Which "model" should I get? I´ll definitely never go above "playing the guitar is just a hobby"-level and I don´t think I need some fancy things that only pro players would appreciate. Im sorry this post is kinda unorganized, but I hope I got accross what im looking for and on what level I am. Any help is appreciated! P.S.: The cable could be defect too. Im getting a new one but getting a new guitar will happen sooner or later anyway (kinda literally falling apart).
