Yup, something may be arriving tomorrow!
Pictures to follow (hopefully not broken ones!!).
Fingers crossed mate
Looks lovely! Put a poker chip on it though.
Erm...a poker chip?
Its the name for the plastic ring that surrounds the pickup selector switch. I think the 2017 Les Pauls look naked without them.
It says Rhythm / Lead on it.
Haha! That really has been a controversial move by Gibson hasn't it! Would I be considered a heathen if I admitted that I preferred it without it? Got one on my Epiphone but I can't imagine that it be getting out the case much now the Gibson has arrived.
I was in two minds about the scratchplate, but I've decided it's prettier without.
Is the photo above yours Raymond Lin? Its beautiful.
Not sure why they left it out them, strange move. The traditionalist will always demand them.
It is my guitar, thanks, mine didn't come with a pickguard weirdly enough, there is no holes on the side either where it screws in. I could source one but don't want to put a hole in where there is none!
None of them come with holes in anymore. You have to drill/screw it in yourself or get a shop to do it for you. Its the main reason I didn't want to get it done, cos if I changed my mind after 6 months I'd just be left with holes in the body!
Mine is from 2001, guess they were in a no joke habit back at that period too.
PRS single cuts don't have the poker chip either. It's like they are all copying each other lol
PRS guitars do have their own unique voice but they can be very similar to LP's. I think Prs offer better options for colours and finishes though. Im just more a Gibson fan, but thats just me.
Love Korg Gadget, it's all I need for tinkering with music production. Recently got a Korg Microkey Air bluetooth keyboard for it and it's amazing, no latency at all. One thing was really annoying was using it with iPad on lap, was a real pain as holding both near impossible....so modded the Microkey so it now has built in iPad stand (cheap amazon alloy stand stuck on base with 3M badge tape)
Could I ask what colour this is? I'm soon to be purchasing my first LP, but i'm still unsure as to which colour.
It's officially call tangerine? It's not made anymore, the guitar is a 2001 custom shop.
If you are unsure then go with the classic such as lemonburst or ice tea burst.
Bear in mind thats a AAAAAAAAAA rated top, so won't come cheap. I like honeyburst myself
That's my R8 with the flame of an R9. It's Lemon burst but has a good bit of orange in it. Though under different light and view point it looks to have different flame and colour.
Ah thats why I cant find it!
Need some time to go see them in the flesh.
It looks like the Tangerine Burst came in the Joe Walsh 1960 from the Custom Shop. Is that what yours is Raymond?
