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.

Just checked and the sticker has the stores name on. So it's probably the store.

yeah stores are calling them "standard traditional" guitars. sam ash and GC do the same thing.

though it wouldn't surprise me if gibson was now calling them that just to make matters more confusing.

because we NEED every ****ing possible name possible.

the 2013 standard deluxe studio traditional custom classics come out next week. :rollseyes:

*available with robot tuning of course.

You forgot Les Paul.

2013 Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Pro Plus Custom Classic Deluxe. On the Truss rod cover it says 'Studio'.

Darkflame's me, buddy

And the multiple types of trads might be different finishes/years. The only 2 models are Traditional plus and Traditional pro (though do they have regular traditionals with solid finishes? there might be a distinction where the traditional has a solid finish such as goldtop/ebony and the trad plus has a burst color or, the best of them all, chicago blue).
Also, it might be 2012 VS 2013 models, as the 2013 is significantly different from the previous ones (it has a fully solid body, mainly).

Iced Tea? Goldburst?

Fine, this is now a "Show your trad" thread.
Here's mine.

Why does it have a left handed truss rod cover (upside down writing).

Are we still treating this as a show your Les Paul Traditional Thread.

Then again mine doesn't even say Traditional on it, even though it was listed as one on the Gibson website before the limited run was discontinued. They only extra marking on it is "1960" on the pick guard to signify it has a 1960 neck profile. I also don't consider this Les Paul very traditional since it has a baked maple fretboard which I am sure didn't exist in 1960. Also, pretty sure there are no 1960 Les Paul Goldtops.

As for the original question, I really think Gibson is pretty much randomly naming Les Paul models now.

^Yeah, seems pretty random. Nice goldie I remember seeing these LPs with numbers on the pickguard a long time ago in music stores!

I've always found signature LPs to be weird. I mean, it's originally Les Paul's signature guitar, so now it's a signature signature guitare. Weeeeeee

you were named after the darkfire?

don't forget the satin all mahogany one.

sam ash has some "exclusive" models that have traditional in the name too.

the traditional 1960 is one that comes to mind.

Pretty sure the Sam Ash "exclusive" traditional last year were the exact same as the Long and McQuade "exclusive" 1960 Traditional that I bought last year in Canada (shown in my previous post). The specs and look are exactly the same.

Haha no but I mean when he said "as the saying Darkflame", that actually meant "as Darkflame said".
