Hello out there! Soon (hopefully) im buying a Gibson Les Paul. But I can't decide which one, so you guys have to help me a bit!

The thing a love is a thin neck, so hit me with options you think could fit me.!

A 60's Slim or Trad Pro may be your only options.
Moving on.....

Having owned both a studio and a standard.....I'd definitely say spring for the standard, but with you wanting a thin neck, can't really help you out.

The LP classic is probably one of my favorite LP's. It has the 60's slim taper neck so it's more toward what you are looking for. But if you want a classic you will have to go used as I'm pretty sure the classic isn't in production any longer. If you want new, shoot for a Traditional Pro, they have the same 60's slim neck as the classic. One of those new will set you back anywhere from $1900 to 2000.

Does anyone own a classic and can give some feedback on it.. Which years are good for a classic?

If you want a specific neck then there is no point looking for a specific model or asking people online. Every Gibson has a slightly different neck - and I do mean every single one, even ones that are made at the same time and that are supposed to be the same model. The necks vary the most with the Custom Shop models, but the standard production models do vary too. The only way - and I stress only way - to know if a Gibson will have a neck that you liek is to go to a lot of stores and play as many Gibsons as you can get your hands on. When you find one with the neck that is right for you, buy that guitar right then and there. Don't buy a Gibson online, don't buy a Gibson without playing it first, don't limit yourself to specific models just because of what the spec sheets say.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

What about those Les Paul Goddess guitars?

Were they thinner neck or shorter scale or something? That is if you're willing to look used and get lucky.

If not then what Fibble said. I usually don't play Gibson's because I not a fan of their necks but recently I had played a Traditional that was a bit more comfortable than the other Gibson's I'd tried. I think you should really go out and try everything you can. Since I assume your ready to drop a few thousand which is a lot of money. I wouldn't want to buy blind in your case.

If he wants something that's as good as an LP standard then I'd much rather an Eclipse II than that ridiculous amount of abalone. For that very reason I'm only ever considering buying the one in flat black.

TS: I know it's not a Gibson, but an ESP Eclipse II is a VERY good LP copy. Eclipse I's too.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
