The Tangerine 2005 American Deluxe arrived today. Sounds sweet, neck is fast, and the guitar is absolutely cherry mint. Not a scratch or ding anywhere.

The action is too low for me and G frets out a bit. Off to get an allen wrench and see if I can get this thing set up. Never seen action so low before and even if it was not fretting out. the action is way too low for me. Thought I would never say that . . .

Enjoy the photos.

Just a question, is that an 08 Standard Les Paul? Or Traditional?

Both look sooo nice!

He was asking about the Les Paul.
So no it didn't.

How's that roller nut? One of the things you get with a HSS deluxe but not a SSS for some reason.

Ok. Man this thing is very sweet. Awesome neck. The strings were literally like 1/64 when I got it. You could breath on the strings to fret em. The neck could actually handle it except on G at 2nd and 3rd fret unless you really put a lot of pressure down. I raised them a bit and all is well.

This guitar smokes. The neck is so damn fast. The jumbo frets are jumbo, but they are nice around 15 to 22. The sound is awesome.

I hate to say this, but I think I like it better than my Les Paul to play which is saying alot since I am not really fully used to it yet.

To answer the question, the Les Paul Traditional is somewhat like the old custom. Not chambered, 50 neck, chunky sound. I love the wounds of the Les Paul, but I think the neck on the Stratocaster is much faster up high. I do keep striking the middle pickup with my pick for some reason.

It is impossible to get a good picture of this color.
