  • NGD My Gibby is Here!

    This is a momentous occasion for me. My first full-size headstock Gibson. Les Paul Junior Special (humbucker edition). Set-up was really nice out of the box. Just tuned it up and jammed for about 5 minutes, then started taking pics for thread. First impressions are very positive. I really like the 490-t/r pickups, as suspected since I prefer vintage output HBs. Baked maple feels nice. Smoother than rosewood. Haven't played it long enough to notice any issues, but so far Im really digging this thing. Only thing I wish it had was a lighter transparent finsih on the back so I can see the wood. The nitro is so thick on the back of the headstock you can barely read the Made IN USA stamp. Oh well . For $549 this was a no brainer. Pics.















    Nice gigbag.

      Great lookign gutiar! HNGD!



      I'd consider tossing some covers on those pickups if I were you. I think it would really complete the look.

                I kinda like the open coil look on this guitar myself. If it were a Standard or Custom then yeah. Plus I hear covers dampen the highs somewhat. .



                I may end up getting a bone or Tusq nut installed, although it seems to hold tune well. Maybe some black speed knobs and some kind of locking bridge. .
