    Had a lead on a Gibson LP yesterday at one of my regular stop pawnshops, and I went to wheel and deal on it today.

    Since cash is KING, I got an AMAZING deal on this guitar.

    This is one of those chambered LP's that weigh a little over 7 lbs.

    Here's my '08 Gibson Wine Red LP Standard Plus:

    I love it, but it's so weird when they put a graphic of a guy with glasses on the neck pickup. Custom?

    Sorry, feeling silly. It's beautiful, nice find, and you know we want to know the price

    That's just funny as hell.

    I hadn't even seen the pickup with my reflection in it.

    I paid $762 + tax for it. I was really trying hard to get him to go lower, but he wouldn't budge,and I didn't want
    to have the deal go south.

    You never know how low they'll go unless you try.

    That's kinda the thought I have every time I see a "how much should I offer" post.

    I am definitely in favor of chambered Les Pauls, and chambered guitars in general.
    Great score!

    That's a steal and a half. And I hate red guitars.

    Well done!!

    Meh. I think 2008 was probably the worst year in Gibson's recent history save for the debacle 100 year models.

    Haha.

    It's ok Jen's, he's just being true to himself.

    After all, he is the "resident Curmudgeon".

    All he said was that he got a good deal on it. Did you read the actual post? So what exactly am I dissing?

    Besides, we all know Texas, he gets a new Les Paul every other week :D :D :D :D :D :D I think he knows I have nothing against him whatsoever. We've both been here ten plus years.

    In any event, this is a discussion forum, a point you seem to have missed. It's not a cheerleading forum. I have an opinion about the 2008 models and I voiced it. Yours may differ. Such is life.

    How many 2008s have you played to come to this conclusion? Gibson has made amazing guitars and dogs every year since its inception. Seems odd that people peg some years good and bad.

    OP, congrats. That thing looks sweet.
