Are the Gibson Les Paul standard 2012 (trans Amber) good Les paul’s?
I’ve been looking around for a Gibson and saw one advertised locally recently. I know that there were a few dodgy years with different gizmos,

Likely to have a laminated two piece rosewood fingerboard. You won't hear it, tho it might be worth a little less.

Don't buy into the laminated fretboard story. I imagine there might have been some, but everyone likes to assume that all 2012's had this.

I owned two different 2012 Les Paul Trad's and had the nuts replaced on both (bone) I asked the luthier to check-out the fretboard and told him about the "Laminated fretboard" story that was going around, and if they were to take photo's.

Neither one was a layered board.

Although the nut would have to be removed to validate it .

The guitar has the pickup splitting coil taps and Grover locking tuners, both of which I wasn’t after but the guitar is in mint condition at ok price and no local dealers are selling Gibson’s right now(not sure if this will change)

The pcb in the electronics scares me. Is there much involved to change pickups in this system?
