I remember my first erection. I went to my dad and was like "Do I have Aids???". I seriously thought there was something wrong with me.

I've been told Les Paul's have terrible intonation and that I was lucky to get such good intonation on mine and it's still not perfect.

EDIT: And the upper frets aren't as easy to get to with that big chunky neck joint.
When altitude dropping, my ears started popping. One more red nightmare...

Strap locks, get some.

Pick-up switch, replace it or tighten it.

Jack - Tighten or replace.

Thats it really.
Get a really good set-up & it'll be the best damn instrument ever

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

You can't really go that much wrong with a Standard, and in a nice colour like yours
Just take care of it, and everything should be fine.

hopefully you got lucky and got a good one...like the other guy said his has suprisingly good intonation...i think mine is the best one ive ever played..not to sound cocky but i defintly think i got lucky and got a very nicely made one because i tried a few before the one i have now and the strap holders came loose the toggle switch could break the tuners could be ****...you just gotta hopefully get lucky like i was..

I broke my toe as a result.

Quite recent models, have more problems than those listed.

Get a Gibson of a pre-2001 age.
