• 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!

Still have all vintage Gibbies, but wasnt really paying attention to the reissues. My son ordered a set of 4 replacement ones and they have this swirl now where before they were the original clear mirrored ones.
Kinda confusing as after so many years of re-authenticating everything from the logos, binding, pickup rings, pickguard recessed screwholes etc and most specs in the name of authenticity, how in the hell did this wrong reissue get the ok? Sorry, but tis just wrong. So why no effort to correct?
