    What exactly did I buy here? Classic? Plus? Premium Plus?

    So, this past weekend I was cruising through Craigslist and a 2003 Les Paul Classic was up for sale with Gibson Antiquities pickups, 50's wiring and a jumbo refret. And it only weighs 8 lbs. Sweet! It had a decent price but I offered something less just to see if I could start a dialog to...

    Ethical Question regarding my Les Paul

    Well, well, well...I've come to grips with the fact that I don't care for my Les Paul as much as I used to. I have a 74' Les Paul Custom (20th Anniversary) which I'm sure is a "fretless wonder". Now I have had this guitar for quite some time and I really dig the sound but I am tired of fighting...
