    FINALLY! I have a Les Paul!

    My first Les Paul! After 31 years of playing guitar, I finally took the plunge and bought a 2004 Class 5. I'm totally satisfied with this guitar. The color is exactly what I wanted and the 60's profile neck is perfect for me since I have small hands and I'm used to an ES 335 and a Taylor...

    Historic in guitar shop with cracked bindings

    Hey guys. You all have a lot of experience with historics. I was in a prominent guitar store here in Vancouver and asked to play a historic they've had for sale for years now (I think it's an 02 or 03 - 59) and lo and behold, there are all kinds of cracks on the binding on the neck where the...

    1987 black Custom... good year?

    I just found a black 1987 custom in pretty good shape at a guitar shop in town. The sales guys claims that 1987 was a good year for customs ( along with 1984 ) Is that true or just a line? Any idea what a good price on this LP should be? Sales guy claims the previous owner had it under his...

    Standard Les Paul Goldtop

    I haven't bought a Les Paul yet, still working on it. I own an ES335 so I'm a Gibson fan but I have yet to own my first LP. Tonight I went to the local music store to get my hands on a few and I was INCREDIBLY impressed with the quality and sound of a Standard Goldtop, priced at a mere $2200...

    Is this a decent deal?

    No one is bidding on this one. Seems the price is fairly low, or am I wrong? :ola http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=920805213

    Price for Standard Goldtop

    Hello, all. I'm new to this forum, awesome stuff! I don't have a Les Paul yet but that's my next goal. I was just down at the local music store and found a nice Standard Goldtop for $3300 (CAN). That's around $2200 in U.S. by my calculations. Does that sound about right? I'm just starting...
