    Great guitar, HNGD!
    I didn't know they came with a double cutaway.

    I must admit I wasn't up to date on Gibsons line myself, just thought they were out of my leauge price-wise. Got som bad GAS when I first saw these doublecuts and when this popped up for sale at 1/2 price of retail I got in touch with the seller right away. PO bought it in june, was missing the gigbag but that is not a concern for me.
    PO had it tuned to C# with 011's so I need to put on some slimmer strings to make it more playable in E-standard. He included some 009 that I will put on later today.

    Beauty !

    You might have to work on intonation with such a big string gauge change.

    Not a double cut fan but that's really classy.

    Unless I am mistaken, that is a Tribute Les Paul and is the opening price point for Gibson. Still, with that authentic Gibson P90 it is a heck of a buy. I'm still doting on my new Epiphone Custom Pro Koa. It will keep the GAS at bay for a while.

    HNGD! Those are great guitars, I predict you're going to have a lot of fun. Just something about 1 P90, 1 Tone, and 1 Volume. So simple and direct! I love it!

    Some time ago I read an article written I think with the help of Leslie West on finding the best sounding old Jr. They played a host of them and rated each one's tone. To their surprise the best sounding were all double cuts. They could give no explanation. Just were.

    They have one of those at my local GC....
    used...
    I have been working on it for a few months trying to get the price down.
    I got them down from $600 to $525.
    my offer was $500.
    Not too bad really, it is a 2019, really is like new, but the only thing is that they have some still new on closeout down to $600.
    Next month I'll offer $450...…
    just because I do want one.
    enjoy yours,
    it's a beauty.

    First, that's just plain old fashioned sexy. HNGD!

    Les Paul double cuts--my man Gary played them occasionally. A custom builder in St. Lou made the LPs he played most even though his Gibby collection was substantial. Gary's LPs.jpg

    I read that article before I got this. They invited several LP jr. owners to bring their best sounding guitar for a comparison. Most thought single-cuts would be best so the majority was SC, but when they nailed down the top five, most of them was DC.
