NGD tomorrow, brown and black


Recommended Posts

Ohh nice.. My brother in law has a faded from like 2011 or something.. Ive played it a few times and its a great guitar by all counts.. and I like the more basic look. They are also (well the ones I have tried) often a tad lighter than say a Standard but again I like that.. More fun to play.


Let us know how it goes [thumbup]

She came today, and the set-up was absolutely perfect.


The guitar plays and sounds so good!

Came with that new generation padded Gibson soft case, and MAN is that thing nice!!


And they sent the black poker chip for the pickup selector switch, in case I ever decide to mount the thing.

Along with a black Gibson guitar strap.


We are going to rock the river fest tomorrow!!

Very nice.. And im glad they leave the poker chip off these days.. I think colours like that are better without them... But on Bursts and Goldtops when you don't have one it looks more like something is missing (I think)...

Yup... Same as my 60s Tribute Goldtop... About 7lbs or so (I think its chambered)... But sounds and feels as good as any Gibson I have owned..


For the price im not sure a Faded or Tribute model can be beat.


As I said.. So much fun to play.. All the sound and none of the back ache [thumbup]

Looks good, best wishes and hope the gig went well.....





Oh man.


Such a long day.

And such a great gig.


Loaded-in at 06:00 am this morning, hooked-up, sound-checked, opening ceremonies started at 09:00 am, and then we were rocking and rolling all day, alternating sets with another local band.

I got home at 5:00 pm, and then there ensued another few hours of putting away gear and polishing guitars and rubbing the necks and fret boards down with Finger-Eaze.


This new guitar, this new Les Paul.


Such a great tone machine.

I am genuinely impressed, and totally happy with this guitar.


She projected fat, warm, loud, and utterly insane tones, on and off all day.


Gorgeous, harmonic squawks, sleazy grooves, and an uplifting (crisp) distorted crunch.

Elegant, tasty, absurdly-fat clean sounds.

Church-like swampy mojo.



I don't know what to say.

Maybe all new guitars knock the ball out of the park on their first gig.


But I doubt it.


I do know this much;

Anybody who tells you that 'weight-relieved' Les Paul guitars aren't real Les Pauls??


They don't know what they are talking about.
