    NGD - 2005 Les Paul Standard Iced Tea Burst

    So, I did it. I splurged big and got myself a used 2005 Gibson Les Paul Standard. Was at my local mom/pop store just last week and mentioned to them that I was interested in grabbing one (although I didn't mention colour). Three days later, they phoned me up and told me they had just gotten the sweetest modern era Standard from a long time customer of theirs.

    Funniest thing was, it was in the exact colour that I had been looking for over the last 5 months on Craigslist etc... To top it all off, I was expecting to hear about getting a summer grant that I hoped to spend part of on said Les Paul the day they called. Alas, I had to wait a couple more days to find out that I did indeed have the funding, but today, I got the good news, and I got the Les Paul!

    If you're ever in Seattle, stop at Emerald City Guitars. Best folks ever - genuinely passionate about guitars, not on commission, and incredibly helpful. They also threw in about $100 of goodies on top of the LP including strap locks, a ton of extra picks and strings, a T-shirt, and some straps.

    What neck is on it? 50s or 60s?

    The 2005 I have played in the past was really great playing and sounding.

    Sounds like they really did well by you, great stuff. Look forward to pics when you get the chance. Flamey or "plainey"?

    It's probably more a 50's style neck. I've never gotten on perfectly with LP necks, but I do prefer the 50's style and this neck was fairly comfortable. It's a sacrifice I'm willing to make for the tone you can get from these guitars.

    Very nice! What's the story with the case - brown with brown lining? Close up pics would be nice after you've had a chance to play her.

    I have a 2005 too. It could be my imagination, but the inlay material seems different than other years. I noticed yours was like mine.

    My number one standard is an '05. That guitar is a beauty, I hope it sounds as good as it looks.

    '05 Standard Faded here. I've also noticed that any '97 that I've played has rocked also.

    Case was an aftermarket case purchased by the previous owner. If this hadn't been purchased from a store I trust, I would have been skeptical, but this LP sounds, feels, and looks like the real deal, so I'm not too worried about that.

    Dale,I recently picked up a '10 LP Traditional in desert burst and really dig the finish.Do you know the year that Gibson introduced that finish?

    Ed,

    I am not sure when it was introduced. Mine is "rim burst" which is a something I tend to like more than the teardrop.

    The back is dark on those and at times I wish it was not. I have 50th Ann Seth Lover pickups in it and an RS wiring kit with 50's wiring (50's neck). It is a great guitar.

    I have an '05 HCS Standard/50's neck. Iced Tea would have been my preference, but when you find one you dig, you overlook the color.

    Enjoy it-it looks great!

    Re: NGD - 2005 Les Paul Standard Iced Tea Burst

    Sweet! It looks EXACTLY like my Iced Tea 05 Standard,the tops are scarily alike.Best LP I've ever played.

    Re: NGD - 2005 Les Paul Standard Iced Tea Burst

    Awesome! Congrats!!

    I have a 2006 Ice Tea LP Standard. I ordered mine sight unseen from Musicians Friend 4 years ago.

    When it arrived I opened up the case and played it and I was in Heaven. It was perfect! And to this day I still get that feeling everytime I get it out!

    Very cool, congrats! I own an 06 Standard with the same finish and it alternates between my 02 R7 as my #1.
    Nice to meet you!

    SAweet! I'm really jonesin' for a reissue. So, I hang out over here instead of the "Historic District" to keep from spending what I know will be needed for maintaining my crib.

    The whole ensemble is beautiful - brown on brown on brown.

    I just got my first LP Classic; a 2005 model 1960, in excellent condition with the Cherry Sunburst and the brown hard case. My wife's son in Honolulu had this in his "old stock" at Hot Licks Guitars and I bought it for a song. I was looking at an Epiphone and he took pity on me and I received it first thing this morning by FedEx. Since it's my first electric, I'm playing with all the knobs and controls to find out what works, but wow, it does sound great. I only wish I had started to play many years ago. Enjoying the hell out of my new hobby. Been a golfer most of my life, and this reminds me a lot of that...each year brings something greater and better, for only a few dollars more...LOL.
    I love this LP Classic...it's beautiful, plays incredibly strong, more machine than I can really handle, but DAMN, it's sweet. Hope I can at least get to the stage where I can claim to be a player before I move on to harps. Interesting site, here; I'm learning a lot. Of course some posters simply want to show how smart they are, which is fine, but the real value are those folks who willingly share their knowledge without trying to show off and baffle with bullshit.
    This is my first post, but maybe not my last. Gibson has developed a cult following, and I'm among them.
