If that's about the Gibson Les Paul, I just went through that myself (and got a trad).
Trad is weight-relieved and standard is chambered
Trad has '57 classic pups, std has burstbuckers
Trad has a normal input jack, std has a locking input jack
Trad has normal deluxe tuners, std has locking tuners
Trad has AA maple cap, std has AAA maple cap
Trad has regular strap screws, std has straplocks
Trad comes with the pickguard on, std with non-solid finish comes with pickguard off
Trad has '60 profile neck, std has the asymmetrical one

Did I forget anything?

I believe they've removed those now.
The traditionals come with the 50's necks.
The weight relief has also been removed on the 2013 models.

Also TS the standard traditional is just another name for a traditional.

Of course, yea. We can read your mind. You're asking us for help, be specific.

There is no Gibson Standard Traditional. There is Standard and there is Traditional.

Why are you asking us again? You went on and on about custom classics and the like and didn't get one? Google will be able to answer all these basic questions.

The traditional can also be known as the standard traditional.

Very true, don't know why I wrote 60's. Also, had forgotten about the no-weight-relief.

I think he is trying to say: "Thank you for your reply, but I didn't ask for the difference between Standard and Traditional, I asked what is 'standard traditional' and what are the differences between [some model he did not say] and 'standard traditional' [a model that does not exist]."

Please, TS, try a little bit and get us to understand what you want.

Oh, that makes more sense. The Les Paul traditional's full name is Standard Traditional though, if I'm not mistaken? That's the name MF lists it as.

I have one. On none of the tags did it say Standard Traditional. I have seen lots of guitar shops list it as Standard Traditional. But on the Gibson product page it lists it as the Traditional.

http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Ele...raditional.aspx

The Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Pro, would be too long. Officially there's no Standard in the title so I think it's a ploy by guitar stores to try and entice people to look at the low price of a Standard, 'but oh, it's only a Traditional, but, it's nice...'

So I'm just saying, whatever people call it, officially, there's no Standard Traditional. As far as I know.

I thought there was a rule that if the Thread looks like it was written by a drunk 12 year old it'd be locked/deleted.

Whenever I hear someone say that they play exclusively a single genre, I always assume that they're just a terrible guitarist.

I bought one in November and the sticker on the case says something like 'Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional'

That's actually quite offensive, English obviously isn't his first language so we might have to clarify some things but don't use shit like that to attack him, It's pretty low.

Who put the sticker on it? Gibson or the store? Mine definitely said Traditional only.

I guess it's commonly know as the Standard Traditional, but officially I believe it's the Traditional.

The trad is quite particular I guess, being a pre-2008 standard. I bought mine on MF, so it was obviously called a standard traditional. In the end, it doesn't really matter though.
