I’ve been hunting for a Gibson for a few yesrs since I saw and heard Musicians Friend play the ES-339 with Burstbuckers on on, back in 2016…Sadly at that time I could not afford a guitar like that.
Now however I can…After hearing the New Les Paul Standard with burst buckers the sound is ALMOST the same when clean.
After much hunting I found a Beautiful Bourbon Burst Les Paul Standard 60’s for my little hands and put a reserve on it today.
My 35 year old electric piano gave up the ghost some time ago so, time for a new instrument.

Wow, that looks sweet
I hope it will serve you well for a long time.
What model was it?
The guitar or the piano lol.?
Stuff the piano, that LP looks the dog’s wottsits !! Is it in an auction type sale ? If so I wish luck.
No, brand new just out of box 2 days. I believe this model was launched Jan ish 2021. No push pull pots or pcb’s, no weight reduction.
Omg, it was a Technics PR something, must be 25-30 years old.
Cool, hope you don’t have too wait to long to get your hands on it !

Sweet looking Les Paul Love the color
That is one good looking guitar! I hope she’ll serve you well.
No weight relief?
Get a wide suede or wide elasticated strap.
And ENJOY the heck out of it.

Looks mighty fine Rachel! Enjoy it to the max
O, what a great guitar! Enjoy it and looking forward for your recordings with this guitar. I am still choosing between the 50s and 60s model and can’t decide!

That’s a beautiful guitar! Happy NGD!!!
I suggest a wide heavily padded strap to help with the weight.
This is the one I put a reservation on.
I’ve read that a leather strap should be used the removed to preserve the lacquer but I agree a wide slip on pad for a 9lb guitar is a must.
If you’ve not been into a store to feel them in your hands, it’s a must. I’m only just over 5ft and have small hands. Despite preferring the 50s feel the neck really decided it and had to opt for the 60s instead
That is a lovely looking guitar Rachael. Exciting times ahead.
not for nothing, but the Epi LP’s are just as good for about 1/8 the price, but enjoy
