For your viewing pleasure (and to entice MikeSlub to post pictures of his Heritage 80, Elite, and Heritage Award guitars), here are some recent pictures of the first ever Gibson Les Paul Standard I ever bought. I am the original owner of this guitar. If it weren't for changed tuner scars (original Grovers are back on) and a couple of dings, this instrument is mint. Check out the control cavity with its metal screening box and untouched solder joints. Have fun dating those pots! Note how differently the plastic parts have aged / yellowed. I can vouch for the fact that all parts are original. Enjoy!
