    Have they gone extinct? I never really hear much about them anymore. To think their prices are probably skyrocketing as their desirability ..seems to be hitting the floor. ..Kinda in the vein of ...Guitar Center, maybe?

    hmmm.

    Update: Yes, Gibson Lester 'o Paul'eo!

    Up until about just a couple years ago, seems they were the hottest thing around. Seems like when Slash kinda died down things did with LP too. He was really carrying them for a while. I guess I'm part of it too, acquiring quite a few of them between 2015 and 2018 and now ..notta ..not even interested. Play my EVH pretty much exclusively.

    Yes, '79 dates back a bit.

    I bought my last LP in 2011. It was a Special with P90's.
    My standard faded is a 2008.
    My Epi plus top is a 2005.
    Don't see any reason to buy another.
