NGD • 2018 Gibson LP Standard Historic Collection

Post by Mini Forklift »

Wow. This was definitely a treat unlatching the case for the first time this afternoon and laying eyes on this, it's a Gibson Les Paul Standard Historic Collection 1958 Reissue Custom Shop VOS in Honey Lemon Fade

Image

Was in tune straight out of the case and it's resonant as hell unplugged, looking forward to plugging it in shortly. The search is over... A DEFINITE KEEPER :D

Amazing top on that!

Forgive my ignorance - do these come without a pickguard, or did you take it off?

stunning guitar! Love the flame and color. One thing though - is it just me, or does the case fit the guitar pretty terribly?

Sweet baby jeebuz! That's stunning!

Is it a hefty beast? Would love to see what it looks like with a pickguard too.

It actually fits very snugly, I just assume that the Historic cases maybe aren’t quite as contoured as the standard Gibson Lifton USA cases?
