    Been missing having a les paul in my life. Even with my epiphone dot and peavey t60 i still didnt have the full "les paul" sound. Went out with the wife to the "local" (ie 40 miles away) shop planning to trade my mustang 3 for something new to play with. I was looking between an epiphone korina v with emgs and a mexi strat when my wife found this little gem. Epiphone les paul standard 1960 v3 reissue. Haggled and haggled and eventually walked out with my newest addition to the herd. Silky smooth neck and lovely squishy action like a les paul should have. The guy said it had 57 classics but the specs say its burstbuckers, dont even care to check as they sound great and have great range. Played a few gibsons next to it but this one was smoking them all. Anywho hngd to me. 20171230_153812.jpg

    Happy birthday and happy NGD! I’ve been itching for a Les Paul myself, which is weird for me as I have never really cared for them until recently.

    Looks great! Is it cherry burst? I had an Epi Les Paul Standard Cherry Burst with a Duncan JB/Jazz set in it. Smokin hot guitar! Probably should have kept that one. Love the cherry burst!

    Usually im not a fan of the epi cherrybursts, as they tend to be too clowny but this one i like. Less red wouldnt have hurt though.

    A lot of those Epiphones are first class guitars, I love mine. And, you got the pink Dreamsicle lined case. Major score there.

    I usually dont care for the necks on most of the epi les pauls but this thing is a dream. Im fairly certain it has the burst buckers and not 57s like he said (the 1960 tribute has the 57s) and through my fender champion 600 it sounds amazing. Definately not mad about the name on the headstock with this one. The case is nice but unfortunately the previous owners cat liked it as well. 20171230_153603.jpg

    Ahh the "Pink Panther" case, the v3 60's can be a excellent deal second hand.

    I had one briefly in "dark burst" but returned it after scoring a Custom that I liked more and was a even better deal.

    I checked the PU's on mine just to be sure they were as advertised and yes,they were BB's.
    You should also have some Mallory caps installed, plus (IIRC) Alpha pots, a Switchcraft toggle...and a COA !

    Its missing the coa and i havent popped it open yet. I seriously doubt this one will be moving on any time soon. Its already pushed my number 1 back in its case.

    Also just found someone selling an elitist with a few pedals and a cube 40xl for $500 local....very tempting but i doubt the cfo (aka the wife) will sign off on another one lol.
