Happy New Les Paul Day.

Picked this up on the way to work today. 2014 Standard +. Nice top. Minty condition. Push-pull pots for the things. Plan is to lean it against my half-stack and just look at it. ;-)

Well, I'm unlikely to have the money for a CS LP any time soon and this seems as nice as the regular production guitars get. Neck profile's a bit slim for my liking but I'll live with it. Chrome pickup covers I'd happily swap for nickel but I'm not putting money into it. Only played it through the wee Blackstar battery-powered amp I have at work and it sounds groovy.

It's got 'traditional' weight-relief (not to be confused with the LP Traditional which, I think apart from 2012, isn't weight-relived), and probably a PCB under the control cover.

Buddy of mine has a standard from about that era and it was a bloody great guitar, couldn't fault it, not a big heavy boat anchor like a lot of lezzers.

I tried-out a few in the shop. Some lean better than others. The Custom Shop ones lean best but I can't afford that. Some lean at a jaunty angle (Explorers and Firebirds mainly) so I've had to rule them out. Thought about leaning a V but there's too much symmetry for my liking. So, a Les Paul it is. I'll be leaning it as soon as I get home. Pics to follow.

I wonder if it has got the classic+ pick-up in the bridge position. I had a Les Paul with push pull pots and at came with the classic+. I thought it was a great pick up.

No idea. All four pots are push-pull. Coil tap, bypass (just the bridge straight to the amp bypassing the pots), and phase reversal (I think).

Les Paul's are great leaning guitars. And falling guitars. It's the landing they struggle with.

take em off and put them in an empty ice ream tub with a small dish of Hydrochloric (?) acid. Check regularly and remove when dulled / aged to your requirements.
