    My kids gave me an early Christmas gift. 2019 Gibson LP Classic. Aside from the Selector switch nut coming off in the case (which I slapped back together most riki tik, it arrived in one piece. Due to work, have only been able to sit down and noodle through a Mustang I but told the Son In Law to get the strings stretched out for me until I get the chance to sweat on it a bit. Neck feels good, no noise and everything works.

    Just when I had sworn off Gibson for good - lol

    I'd love it even if it wasn't up to snuff cause the kids gifted it to me IMG_7496.jpg IMG_7493.jpg IMG_7515.jpg - I'm a blessed old man.

    Very cool! The swearing off Gibson thing going on right now will pass in time. Their designs are classics and copied often for a reason. Congratulations and enjoy!

    The last LP I had was in '89 when I sold it for a neon Jackson Rhoads to play hair metal on. Wanted to love them again but the quality has been so hit and miss for so long I was scared to try one especially for the $ - but I will say that the quality issues appear to be on the wane. This one seems to be gtg - I'll try to log as many hours as possible over the next month or so just to get any issues to raise their head so to speak, all in all it seems to be solid even with the modern electronics.
    Thanks very much for your kind words!

    That is a fantastic gift, and a beautiful guitar, congratulations!

    On the Gibson quality issues I keep hearing about, I just don't get it. I have seen some examples online, but I have nine Gibsons, all bought sight unseen, ranging from 2007 to 2018 models, all are essentially flawless. They came decently set up (tweaking still beneficial), they feel great, sound great, just wonderful instruments. I also got very nice deals on all of them. 2 are Les Paul Classics (2007 and 2017), and are great guitars. I love all nine of them.

    I have never in my life, wanted a Les Paul... until the last few months, and I CAN'T SHAKE IT! This is not helping at all. :D That's just beautiful and what a great story too, congratulations!
