    Thanks! The pickups are Seth Lovers, actually nickel - but they do look gold in the lighting. This is probably my best sounding of the 3 (all are very good, but those unpotted pickups are just magic).

    I know what you mean! The one on the right was more or less my “tribute” to Gary Moore’s stripe LP - it looks a little more yellow in direct sunlight. For a while I wanted all of my LP’s to look like Gary Moore’s signature model (or as close as possible).

    When I was looking online most places were out of stock. I looked on Willcutt’s site and they had a few in stock. I actually had a 60’s Unburst model picked out first, but my wife talked me into the Heritage Cherry 50’s model. She also picked out the Honeyburst model on the left in my group shot. She has a good track record so I listened to her!

    Glad you lucked out and they sent you a perfect one! I'm a little nervous about ordering something that expensive w/o first seeing/trying.

    But it does seem like maybe Gibson's QC has improved. I haven't heard anyone complaining about any of the new ones, and they sure are beautiful.

    Awesome looking guitar! Congratulations!
    How do you like the 50’s neck compared to the slim tapered one? The 50’s is a little chunkier, no?

    I know what you mean, but unfortunately I don’t have any Gibson dealers in my area other than Guitar Center.....and I don’t purchase guitars from Guitar Center (not trying to offend anyone - my own personal experience with them has been bad). So I buy from reputable online dealers and ask lots of annoying questions before I make a purchase.

    I have owned both neck shapes over the years but have always preferred the 50’s neck, it is a little bit more substantial.

    2019/2020 LP Standards are the best production guitar Gibson’s made in 60 years.
