• 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!

I finally got around to taking a group pic of my Gibson guitars.

Left to right is a 1970 ES335, 2012 CS356, 1999 Les Paul Classic and a 1999 SG Supreme.

The measurements of the guitars from the widest part of the upper, middle and bottom and the body of the guitar from the bottom to where the neck joins are:

ES335: 11 3/8, 8 3/8, 16 1/8, 18 ½
CS356: 9 13/16, 8 1/8, 14, 16 3/8
LP: 9 1/8, 7 1/4, 12 15/16, 17 3/8
SG: 10 ½, 9, 13 1/8, 14 15/16

Good family shot, the 356 sits in good company.

This thread can also be: 'Meet The Amps'! Although some of them are shy...

I usually keep them in cases and I have two guitars at a time in guitar stands and I'll play them for awhile and trade them out for two more when I've played them long enough. Those are the Gibsons. I have quite a few more besides Gibsons.

Oh man, you have chosen wisely. What a great collection. Those are beautiful. Killer amps, too. You have great taste. The top on the Les Paul is magical.

Thank you, I appreciate the kind words. I'm trying to refine my gear down to quality over quantity while walking the line of variety.

Man.

The 1999 Les Paul models had various and assorted tops from hell. I remember that clearly.

It was nuts. So many of them. Like an excessive amount a badass tops!
