Hey @Marcomel79 , read the OP.
He lists all his gear in his sig, in big bold font (at least it's not dark blue anymore...).
Holy shit! Hes sitting on 4 les pauls!
one of my fav bursts. i would upgrade the hell out of that thing
Its got new pickups and wiring/pots/switches/input jack.. stays in tune.. does the led zeppelin very well!
damn thing just looks sick. what the name of that burst type again?
Im not really sure.... bought it second hand....:
somebody on here prolly knows.
I do still have them, but they went very microphonic, so it's had a set of Bareknuckle Mules in it for about 5 years now (and I re-wired it with CTS pots and braided cable at the same time to sort out crackles and noise).
The nut was replaced as part of the re-fret since the higher frets meant the original slots were too low and would have caused fret buzzing.
Did the same with mine, CTS pots and Gavitt braided wire. Its a joy to solder...
Little something for the OP - here a factory modified Studio direct from Gibson with a pickup configuration that he may like:
$300 less than new and with a HSC while the current ones only come with a soft case. These things can be found if you're ready to strike when you see what you want.
Used sound just as good as new, sometimes better! I've seen plenty of LP's for sale in buy/sell where the owner bought it new, never took it out of his house, never put a single scratch or dent on it, and is selling for $700 less than a new one. You have to keep looking every day if you want one, and when a good one comes up for sale you have to jump on it the same day.
I have purchased this way, saved lots of money, and one time even got an unplayed guitar from a collector in Mint condition.
I don't have a lot of money either, but it's important to make the most of what you do have. Don't give up man!
Hey @RCM 800 - What year was your Studio? Was it a limited edition model, or a Premium Plus? Just curious.
Exactly how I got my 2016 Studio - right down to the asking price!
I look everyday. I pulled the plug on selling my Strat. 300 listings of red ones tells me its not going to sell and I am not giving it away. I only have a measly amount saved at this point. There haven't been any new used listings at all both Ebay and Reverb. I make crafts on the side and can't even sell those. It hurts everyday seeing others posting post on FB Gibson forum getting there first LP. Especially the one I wanted.
Sell one of your amps. Or trade one for a LP.
FINANCE ...... the one you really want.
Dont impulse buy !
Sell off old at your leisure.
Back in my day , there were no Studios ,we bought Melody Makers , cut 'em up , and we liked it !

Why don't you sell some of that instead of contemplating suicide? Geeez, Dude. Get off the idea that "some people are given everything and others are given nothing". There are ways to get extra money to buy the things you think you really want. I make pretty good money but most of my gear has been purchased with overtime money or selling some of my other stuff to get the cash. I can think of one thing that was given to me which was a Boss tuner. I work my ass off putting in 12 hour days and sometimes 16 hour days.
Go do some odd jobs like shoveling walkways this winter. Do you live somewhere where you can clean the leaves out of peoples' rain gutters or clean up their yards? Go pick up bottles and cans and start a Les Paul fund that you don't touch until you get a couple thousand in there. Yeah, it's going to take some time to get it built up but you'll appreciate that Les Paul much much more when you DO pull the trigger. I've paid my rent when I was in my 20s and laid off by getting creative with ways to earn extra money. Most of it was legal except the selling weed part.
Was your goal with this thread to get someone to feel bad for you and send you a Les Paul? Don't expect one from me. I know Covid and everything else is getting you bummed but guess what... we're ALL feeling like that.
Don't scrimp and save and blow your first $500 on a cheap ass broken headstock Les Paul when/if you get some money saved up. Keep saving until you have a wad of cash that'll help you do some haggling when you have one in your sights. Cash is king every time. When you find one and it's negotiating time, don't ask "Will you take $1100?". Pull out eleven one hundred dollar bills and count them out on the table and say "This what I have. Can I take that LP home?".
Above all, stop feeling sorry for yourself. Make something happen.
Hey! What have you got against broken headstock Gibson's?
