    I'm back in the club! Bought this for myself as a Christmas present. Going to be getting a cover on the bridge pickup and a GuitarMadness ceramic p94 for the neck. Had that setup in an Epi LP Standard a while back and really liked the versatility.

    Took a collection shot last night and here it is featuring the Les Paul I make and posted about earlier along with my PRS SE Zach Myers with the semi-hollow Les Paul body shape...

    I'm eligible to be in the club now. I just got a 2017 gold top Les Paul Tribute. Somewhat unsurprising being me, I'm going to swap out all the electronic parts. Current plan is DiMarzio 36th anniversary PAFs and a Jimmy Page mod. Plus I'm adding a switch surround pokerchip with a more interesting choice than "Rhythm/Treble" on it to fill the space that Gibson inexplicably leaves empty on Tributes.

    This is Paula.
    She's a '76 that I bought after the previous owner snapped the Headstock.

    I was looking back at old posts in this thread and noticed my photos are gone because of photobucket, so here's mine again.
    It's a 1974 Deluxe that started life as a really blah cherry sunburst that had been chopped up for EMG pickups. After replacing part of the maple top and re-routing for a 1950's P90 & Firebird pickups & Bigsby I had to refinished it black.

    Joining the club with my 1994 LP Standard in Honeyburst. Bought it pre-loved with Seymour Duncan SH5 Custom bridge pickups. Intended to change back to the original 498T but I like the balance of the SH5 with the 490R neck (the vendor said I would). I did fit a Gibson chrome cover over the SH5 pickups though. The only other thing of note is the 1994 serial number beginning 94xxxxxx to celebrate the Gibson centenary year rather than the usual format of ydddynnn. Plays very comfortably (except for the weight, of course). P8220014.JPG

    Here's mine.
    It's wine red 1996 standard.
    It has lollar high wind imperial pickups and nickel hardware.
    I've owned it from new, when I was 25.
    it was my only guitar for about 15 years.
    I still love it, although I probably grab the telecaster more often these days.

    That looks very versatile!

    Love P94 pickups. I bought my LPR7 in 2008 and put P94's on it. I bought the TV Jones Classic pickups to use on my Gretsch 5120 but I discovered that I like them on the LP. The P94's sound good on the Gretsch so that's their home now.

    I posted in August 2017, but the photo link has broken.

    All of them actually say "Les Paul" on 'em, except for the Hamer, but let's face it, a Hamer Special is pretty much an LP Special (especially if one sticks a scratchplate on, as I did). The 2 Epiphones are setnecks, both "Ltd. Ed. Custom Shops."

    And yeah, I know that there isn't actually an Epiphone "Custom Shop."

    ;)

    I had long-term loan of a black ’76 Les Paul from our bass player a few bands ago. It looked very much like yours except it had Grover tuners and pretty much all of the gold plating had worn off the pickup covers and hardware. I loved it! It almost, but not quite, eclipsed the Schechter kit Tele I owned at the time. I liked was having two guitars at my disposal that didn’t cover the same sonic ground.
    I know there is not a lot of respect for Norlin-era Gibson, but I thought this guitar was awesome. The neck just felt right; it was worn in and road-ready and the pickups were great. Also, given the wear and the Norlin vintage, you didn’t feel like you had a case queen on your hands; it was a player. It just had that magic you sometimes find with the right guitar.
    My best friend/current bass player dissuaded me from making an offer on it because he noted the sandwich body had begun to de-lam as I’m told sometimes happens to those. Still, I continue to have severe spasms of LP GAS (Les Paul, not Liquid Propane, LOL) I will very likely be joining this club soon! (Albeit probably with an Epi.)

    I’ve been offered a genuine 68 black 1 piece bodied Les Paul, all original and no neck breaks. Question is, are these particularly desirable, and what sort of price should it sell for, as neither of us has a clue? It’s been gigged, but in very good condition but not immaculate. Same owner since 1981. Any advice welcome!!
