The Classics are the best bang for buck deal that Gibson offers. I had one for a couple of years but eventually traded it for a '57 LP Custom Historic, three pickup model.

This was supposed to be a reply to the Classic Owners thread. Silly me. I blame it on Lily. :)

Back to classics

I think there great guitars. They play easy, there cheap, and it is basically the standard Les Paul of this time. You see a lot of Pro's playin'em all the day.

I must say the puky green inlays are pretty bad on some of them.

Inlays must be hard to do or take time.

Yeah- what's up with those "green" inlays?

Does Gibson actually do those on purpose? :eek: Is there a logical explanation for them? The inlays on my '97 Classic Honeyburst look more "aged" I guess, but maybe somebody else would say they had a greenish tint to em....

Yep, I think that lovely shade is an ill-advised "aging" attempt. I just shake my head at the grossness of my inlays.

Classics have aged (sort of) inlays and new binding. Historics have aged binding and new inlays. Hmmm....

new/aged binding?

So is the aged binding just "darker" looking or what? Is it the same diff as 'tween the aged and new inlays? just wondering..... :wail:

Classics ???

IMHO !!! When u buy a Classic, you dont baby the thing. You play it without remorse or whatsoever. That's why they're look pukey in a kinda way so you can play the bejezzus out of it. Play it like it's meant to be played man!... " We are the Classics " period. :wail:

Yeah !

I've had two of them , the last one the inlays actually had a
noticable green tint , like "moldy" and aged are the same thing .
The one I have now , though , I don't see it on the inlays , they are just dark to me .

But love is blind .

And , yes , when you only have a grand in a guitar you aren't afraid to stage hump it if the mood hits you . And you never know , it just might !
