NGD: Gibson LP Traditional Satin

Their was apparently a mistake at GC's online site I did my weekly oggling at these when they were on clearance for $1200ish. Instead of clicking brown I accidentally hit Cherry. They had it marked for $650, a store a hour away had one so I bought it online and picked it up in the morning (drove 90 mph and called ahead they let me pick up before the store opened). Apparently it was a issue because by that night the item came off their site and has been on and off since at $1500. And last pic is a Squier CV50s I got at a Best Buy for $140 that I also love

Re: NGD: Gibson LP Traditional Satin

hell yeah dude, coulpe nice axes there..
I have a "faded" explorer that kind of looks the same as that LP. Its my main guitar.
Does it come with the 498-490 pickups?

I played a classic vibe tele once and almost bought it.

Re: NGD: Gibson LP Traditional Satin

I had a cherry faded explorer and I miss that more then any guitar I have ever sold...... And it was another GC "steal" was a blow out for $450...... The finish on the satin is a bit different I wouldent say semi gloss but not as dry feeling?

It has 57 neck and a 57+ bridge, 60's neck all mahogany sounds amazing! Similar to the vintage burst Traditional Pro on the left.

I wanted a good tele and strat and I got a used/new BSB CV 50s tele and love it the neck is perfect frets are amazing and no plans on pup swap (did put a brass compensated wilkinson bridge on I had) And was looking for a CV 50s Strat and came across this had a bad ground and they were going to send it back at a huge loss. Sold it to me for $140 mint and I was able to fix it in minutes

Re: NGD: Gibson LP Traditional Satin

I just picked up my very first Gibson LP (Studio) in Worn Brown. I am really taken with it. I was never a fan of LPs, but the sound on this thing is madness.

I couldn't resist throwing out a quick rendition of Sweet Child of Mine and Whole Lotta Love

those faded models and satins are priced like entry level Gibbys, but seriously,, if you like the finish, you are getting a terrific guitar for the price.

Re: NGD: Gibson LP Traditional Satin

Not really that Traditional Satin was in the $1800 range when they came out, then were clearanced at $1300

The regular faded explorers were $900 if memory serves correct back when the faded LP's were $600ish
