"On recent models, the frets stopped short of the neck binding; 2014 New Model Year Gibsons feature frets which reach over the edges of the binding to provide a smoother playing surface, especially if you find yourself in the midst of an especially impassioned vibrato workout on the high E string."


Well I didn't know they had done that, learn something new every day lol.

some people swear by lightweight hardware and say they can hear a difference.

That guitar is beautiful. I'm probably going to break down and blow my tax return on one like it.

I'm used to the chunkier weight, I may consider that in the future though haha

yeah i mean it's not a "heavy" one as it is, so i probably wouldn't either.

it's nice to see gibson making the newer finish colors. i'm sofa king "tired" of cherry bursts it's not funny.

Without a doubt, that is one of the best looking Les Pauls I've ever seen in my life. Awesome

Wow, thanks guys, that means a lot, makes the sting of seeing the money gone in my account go away haha.

I have to agree, refreshing to see something different than a tobacco burst or wine red haha.
