She's beautiful! Congratulations! I just purchased my first Gibson as well last week, and got her a couple days ago as well.

 

How are you coping with the thicker neck and upper fret access? I'm not used to it yet so it's a work in progress but it's so worth it for that sound...

I have a couple Epiphones and a lawsuit era les Paul the neck isn't that much different. It is however a largely superior instrument. Makes my Epiphones feel cheap in comparison. I am loving the tone and sustain. I may never pick up another guitar lol.

I bought the last gold top, 9lbs 10oz from sweet water ,

Traditional 1730 shipped...

I had a hard time not getting the blue one, it looks sick.

I've always wanted a gold top though.

 

 

Good luck with it amigo, there is no guitar with the Les Paul tone out there, other than a real Gibson Les Paul. I hope it gives you many years of playing pleasure.

Hey Ive just got one the same!!!

 

Ive pulled the PCB board out and replaced with CTS pots and orange drops.

Also bone nut and lowered the frets as they were way to high for my liking?

 

Its been mentioned many times that this colour changes under LED lighting. It goes green and even grey!!!

 

Lovely guitar,

 

ENJOY!!

Hey guys I'm new here - got my first Gibbo three days ago, been allover it like a cheap suit! The neck is challenging me slightly as I've been playing 60's profile Epi classics and stds until now - got a beauty of a faded LP worn brown studio 2012 - tried two and the second one was something else, the tales of "every Gibbo is its own beast" couldn't be more accurate. I'm so glad I found a "cheeky one" as I like to think of it!

I also checked her serial number - she's only 3 months old bless her! :)

It's certainly the nicest trans blue I've ever seen on an LP..

I've used blue many times, but never found one that suits it quite so well... I'm jealous!!
