#1: Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded (50's neck, honey burst)









#2: Gibson '76 Explorer (classic white)







Both guitars make the Blackstar HT-5 amp shine, but I think it's time to upgrade. Series One or Artisan? Decisions, decisions....

Nice guitars and cases.

The white fabric in the cases makes me want to fall asleep....those must be some comfy guitars when they get laid to rest.

Beat the recession by soldering your strings back together! What's more, the extra metal vibrating back and forth will add to your tone... and what could be more metal than more metal!?!

Thanks guys! It was really hard to decide which one to play last night, I kept switching between them and trying out amp settings and effects until I realized it was 4am and I was supposed to go to work 4 hours later talk about NGD overload... thank God it's Friday and I have the whole weekend ahead!

And sorry to disappoint some people (including myself), but I'm neither loaded nor have I won the lottery. I just have a good paying job and have been saving. Reality sucks, right?

Very nice set of Gibbys. Did you get them both brand new? Did you get a good deal on them? I would figure if you were willing to get two Gibbys the shop would have given you a great deal. I don't know which one I like better they are both awesome looking. I always seem to get lost in time when playing one of my new guitars especially if it shines.

HNGD, HNGD!!

That Les Paul Finish is my favourite of all finishes

HNGD's dude. Wow, 2 at once? I woulda probably waited on one so I could pay enough attention to and get to know them individually. But good on you for saving up the cash yourself. Picked out a couple really nice ones. Don't forget strap locks.

Serious changes have taken place in the past month, and after a couple of trades and some extra spendings the Standard Faded is gone, along with a EC-401VF and an Epi Classic Custom. Their place was taken by 2 other Gibson Les Paul: a 2006 Standard and a 2009 Traditional. Gotta love a good Xmas bonus!

Standard:


Traditional:

desert burst = win.

do you prefer the tone from the traditional or standard more?

In their stock configuration, the Trad. However I'm about to install RS Guitarworks wiring kits and Faber hardware on both, so things might change.

damn that desert burst has a nice top!

That explorer is beautiful, never seen such a good looking girl.
I would like to comment on the LP, but my browser won't load the pictures of it. Compared to the explorer, how beautiful is she?

Anyhoo, HNGD X2
