The Les Paul Classic is now discontinued. What was probably the coolest, fastest, and loudest Les Paul is now gone. It had a slim neck and pickups that would make an Ibanez run home and cry to mommy. Gibson, you suck.

Slim neck?

I thought it was the same as a Standard only with ceramic pickups...

I'm not a fan of "slim necks" myself, but I've never played a Gibson neck that I could describe as slim.

You are so amazing. You found a reason to post a picture of your guitar.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who aren't close-minded morons.

Agreed. A moment of silence to the Epi Elitist line, just recently discontinued.

I know. I'm starting to really hate Gibson. (not the guitars, the people BEHIND the guitars)

They keep discontinuing these great guitars, then making these ugly reverse guitars, and "holy" flying Vs. Are they just stupid?

I do think it's a nice guitar, and props to you TS for having it. But you should really just wait for people to lurk into your profile. You shall get NO "nice guitar" comments from me.

Fender USA is #1 in terms of being stupid with guitars... Gibson should backoff before fender USA does something as retarded as limiting 33 different Mustangs to only Japan (and not letting fender japan to sell any of their guitars to anyone in N.A.) oh wait....they already did that....bastards...

Look what Gibson did to Kramer. The Kramer website doesn't even work. Don't expect Gibson to be cool.

It's just so true. I lost faith in Gibson when they discontinued the Elitists.

^ that's just the flame maple one. It's the wood that makes the detail like that. Look at the Epiphone Les Paul Standard. The "regular" standard has no detail of wood (because it would just look weird, like one of those albino Agiles). But the "plus" standard HAS the details, because it's using flame maple... which makes the wood more attractive. So, they make the paint transparent.

I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope they've got some reason for this. And it'd better not be some stupid "holy" SG, or Les Paul. Or whoever runs gibson is gonna get verbally e-slapped via e-mail!

You know, I'm a huge Strat fan, but there are times where I just gotta pick up a Les Paul and get that right tone. Can't say I'm going to miss this line though.
