I'll be moving to the dorms at UCSB pretty soon and I'm not sure if I should take my Gibson or not.

Would it be better to buy a guitar that isn't as valuable and take that?
Or should I just take my Les Paul to college?

I don't see why it wouldnt be safe if you look after it.
If you really don't trust yourself you could always get an agile or something

take your crappy gibson, but like the person above said, get it insured. That way if someone steals it you can get a real guitar

Dumbass.

Anywho TS, I'd only be wary if you're neglectful of your things or if they don't have a good security system. I;m planning on taking my Edwards to university with me next year.

Dude, go acoustic and buy a Big Baby Taylor. It's an amazing guitar for the price

Plus, college gals dig a guy with an acoustic guitar

Sorry for the double post.

Having an acoustic is also a good way to make money. Play any local shops, or just play outside for tips from people passing by

look where this thread is

ELECTRIC GUITAR


now to answer your question, im sure your lp would be fine but if your worried its going to get damaged just make sure its in its case while you arent playing it and hide it while your not in your dorm and im sure it would be fine.

i would try to get some cash and find a decent playing used guitar in a shop or a pawn shop somewhere. even people who don't know anything about guitars know about gibson. anything with a recognizable name on the headstock is more likely to be stolen, plus you'd be upset if it got damaged because it was in a tiny dorm room and got knocked around or something!
