• 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!

Ain't she pretty? I've paid for it, but it hasn't arrived yet. I can't wait...

It's an '04 Standard that has been through the RS aging process. They did a real good job on it... Also has an RS upgrade kit installed. The pickups are still the stock 490/496 (or is it 498?), I may swap them for something more PAFish.

Since it started life as an off-the-rack Standard, the price was pretty reasonable.

Awesome, dude! RS did my '04 R9, and I love it.

Congrats on a great buy!

That is a great aging job. Beautiful guitar...it would look real nice with a uncovered double black in the bridge. Kind of a Jimmy Page look...:2cool

If it is ´04 Standard it will have Burstbuckers Alnico Pro V.:2zone

Very interesting... I'll have to pull them and see when it gets here. Seller said he thought they were the 490/496 combo.

I planned to play it for a while before I change anything, anyway...

Great looking Std! Congrats!

Did you swap the Nashville for an ABR or did it come with the ABR?

I think the seller said he swapped out the bridge and tailpiece. Not sure what was in there or what these new ones are. I guess I'll find out when it gets here... I just thought it looked nice, and the price was right.
And I had another piece of gear I could sell to fund it, so I went for it.
