    Has anyone tried this New Standard with the Plek'd fretboard? I believe it also has a chambered body? Has this affected the intonation, playablity and sustain of the original standard or is this Gibson re-inventing the wheel?

    I liked the sound very much. The less weight was nice. 3 weeks after purchase the fretboard warped,returned. However I did like the sound. Good luck!

    I assume you did not get another one? Did it have the Burst Buckers?

    I have an 07 Std . with those features. Best LP I've got out of the box in a long time. Setup was perfect. They must do it to the SG Std's also because my 08 SG arrived perfect also.

    I played 4 of the new standards at a big music store and although the fretwork felt great, the nut wasn't cut right on one of them, so it'd still require me to pay for a real setup after buying.
