New LPT day.

Post by sopachrga »

Finally got around to getting myself a Les Paul. It’s one of those guitars that I don’t need, but just always want to have.

This one is a 2009 (I think) Traditional. Love the idea of the big lump of mahogany that the trads have going on. Even though the more modern tone of a standard would be better for me.

Has the 57 classic pickups in it, not a fan of them at all. So will be looking to swap them out soon. (If anyone wants to buy them or trade, keen to chat)

But all in all, a fun guitar!

Didn't know he was selling pickups now. Cool.
I was think about some EMGs though.... jk.

I had a guitar with Suhr Aldrich pickups in it at one point. They were great, after something like them again.

The Lester looks quite old fashioned on that wall!

Nice Les Paul Mark :)

Good to see you're still keeping a fairly familiar set of guitars.
