Wink NGD Gibson LP Standard Purple Madness!

Here's one of the other few NGD's I have taken the time to post. I have been LP shopping for the past few months, and just picked up my brand new Gibson Les Paul Standard quilt top in "Regal Purple."

Yes, Alaska, they actually make these in purple!

I have been looking for this guitar for several years now, with this combination of appointments - especially the gorgeous purple quilt top. Not to drone on and on about the purple, but it was fantastic for me (hopeless purple guitar freak) that they would release this guitar in a "no doubter" purple. That is, honest to goodness, no holds barred - purple.

Many times companies (Gibson included) will release "wine" reds or "midnight" blues, or some other close to purple color, but it's just not the same. I'm thrilled they did this one in full on "Regal Purple" to satisfy the dozen or so of us around the world that would kill for this guitar, in this color.

Elcid's Axcess was a close second for me, if only for the neck joint and playability. I spent time behind several of them and was quite impressed. I still may end up getting one of the hardtail Axcess' in the next few months.

Anyway, here it is. All the pic's are of my guitar, first few taken by me - last few taken by seller. I show the retail shots here because they really capture the color and quality of the top, and I'm generally too lazy or inept to get these quality pics on my own

Yup. Purple madness.














Once again, will spend the weekend locked away, with bloody, purple fingers!

Wow! Now that is a beautiful thing! I don't see many Gibsons these days that really inspire my guitar lust, but that is gorgeous! It's like Gibson went PRS on it. Congrats!

Re: NGD Gibson LP Standard Purple Madness!

Thanks all!

I'm super pleased with it, and am pretty tired today after staying up so late playing

Yes it is. They released a limited run in purple, blue, "steel",orange, and green.
I personally think the steel is cool, and the green in vibrant and cool looking as well. I just fell out when I saw the purple. It's definitely the best in my opinion.

Re: NGD Gibson LP Standard Purple Madness!

Purple Dimarzios in the sucker... that would look bad ass. If it were mine I'd put pink mounting rings and pink knobs on it too!

In second thought, maybe just the purple pickups and purple knobs?

Sweet cheese and crackers! That is the coolest LP I've ever seen!
I may just have to track one down.
Gold hardware is a must on this one!

Can't say I like the purple, but it's still a great looking guitar. The bridge almost looks cosmo or like black chrome. Is that just the picture?

Re: NGD Gibson LP Standard Purple Madness!

Is that really just an R9 with a quilt top?
