• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

anyone disappointed that their Les Paul Historic is a pre 2013 ?

...... without all the goodies like hide glue , custom buckers and no truss rod condom ?
All Historics are Structurally the same from 2002/2003 through today. With the exception of hide glue for the neck, nut material trus rod condom. Nothing els has changed.
2013 was no major change in anything.
Gibson still to this day cant make a PAF worth anything. There so so at best.
Any of my older Historics i still have. Are today more accurate then a 2021🤣. Most Historic guys on here have done the same.
The one thing that is consistent with Gibson is there Marketing exaggerations lets call them...SQR

I mean honestly, who would want to be seen in public with this 2004 beautifully quarter sawn eastern maple topped Les Paul with stunning sunburst shading, its Madagascar rosewood fretboard, aged hardware and double white's as the icing on a cake Id dearly love to taste...

But hey, what can you do, it was made before Gibson knew the post '013 magical mystical Les Paul recipe, oh the shame ! If only we knew, think of the millions we could have spent (Gibson does).

But dont despair.. 2004 was a vintage year, as is every year.. before and since..
