Never the pickguard.
Cream looks great - did the same with my old LP Studio. It was like having a new guitar.
I agree that it will look better without the pickguard. That's some nice flame, you don't want to cover it up.
I love my Les Paul pickguards! Have you seen the Heritage pickguards? It looks even better than the LP ones!
Nice!! How do you like it?
No have not seen the heritage pickguards. Any photos? Would one fit with P-90s?
Yeah, fully aware of this. Another reason why I really need to be sure - once those holes are drilled that's it...
I agree here. Since the body finish has black tones the black pickup cover matches well. In my case there is no other black on the guitar so I prefer the creme...
I was also going for this look:
It weighs in at just under 10lbs... I think the AA maple top, orange sunrise finish was exclusive to Long and McQuade (Canadian version of Guitar Center)...but not 100% sure(?).
looks great w/ the creme, and another vote for no PG
Just got my first Gibson LP this week, w/ P90s, and I am totally in love with the tone this thing pumps out!
Not sure if they even make extra parts or p90 ones, but man look at this thing!
I really like the creme!
Nice guitar, nice unusual finish: looks great. IMHO the move to cream plastic was a good decision!
I’d say leave the pickguard off — I think LPs look better without. But YMMV...
@TeleFunk Man the cream plastic looks great, to me. The black on orange made it look like a Les Paul Halloween model.
So far I am just.... impatient
I bought it last 19th and is on it's way from London to Madrid. I will put my fingers on it next week. Darn eastern holidays are delaying everything.
Is not the first Les Paul I own and not the first with P90s. I was looking for a Junior or a Special and this just appeared, made an offer, was accepted and now I am just waiting on a new friend
Creams are an improvement. Go Cream.
It looks beautiful/better with the cream. The guitar color is so eye catching.
I usually think that LP’s look dressier or or more LP-ish with the pickgaurd on.
Can you lay the guard on the guitar and post a photo. Drilling that hole bothers me if you’re undecided.
The cream looks really nice. To me, any guitar that traditionally had a pickguard looks better with a pickguard. Tele's, LP's... doesn't matter, unless it's a rat rod, it needs a pickguard. If you play the guitar enough, it'll get scuffed up and then what..... Plenty of wood still shows through with a pickguard. In the end it's your guitar though.
So I decided to keep it without guard. Someone suggested I tape the guard on just to see how it looks which I did. And nah, it's definitely better without the pickguard...
