I've been looking at Gibbys, not finding exactly what i want.
If i fine one with a sunburst flame top, it doesnt have a pickguard, and vice versa.

This is my dream LP, but its an Agile, and id kinda rather have a Gibson >_>

Thanks for input.
there are plenty of 'pauls like that one. the sunburst flame maple top is pretty commom te LP standard for example) and a pickguard comes with most of them i believe, but they don't put them on the guitar sometimes on the pics.

Yes, Gibsons do make Les Pauls that look like that. They're called Gibson Les Pauls.


Standards and most others don't come with a pickguard, believe it or not. Neither do they have the required holes for one to be added later either.

The Gibson Les Paul Classic comes with a pickguard though, and is available in Cherry Sunburst. It's exactly the same as a Standard, just with a pickguard and different stock pickups (which should be changed in both models anyway - neither the 49/50 series that the Classics have nor the BurstBucker Pros that the Standards have are really any good).

EDIT: of course, the Epis all come with pickguards.

My Les Paul Standard came with pick guard, just not mounted on the guitar.. what if u wanna remove the pickguard, and end up with 3 holes in the body? not nice

Well... I AM a virgin, afterall...
well, just buy one w/o the pickguard, then put a gickguard on, doesn't seem that complicated to me,but hey, i'm not a rocket scientist so what do i know
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)
Floor Pod (for sale)
Of course they do. But, if u can live without the name, drop some BurstBuckers into that Agile and it would sound just like a Gibson and play pretty well for a whole lot less,considering that Gibson LP Standards are around $2,000.
I think he's also looking for the binding on that guitar.

I don't think the Gibson Les Paul Classics in the Herritage Cherry Sunburst Finish is still being sold. If they are, where?

And the Classic's herritage cherry sun finish is a little different than the others. The Red doesn't mix into the yellow much, and I just saw one yesterday at Guitarcenter, there wasn't really any yellow, it was just: Red fading into the regular wood color.

But I duno, thats just me. My favorite color is the Herritage Cherry Sunbursts on the Gibson Les Paul Standards from the 80s!!
He wants heritage cherry sunburst, maple top, creme pickguard, and a pearloid bind. I think the best you'll find is a creme binding

edit: On a Gibby. Agiles are good too though.

if you are talking anbout the coler/finish then yes. if you are talking about the shape then no because agiles use a different single cut shape, which I think looks bad.
