1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Is this the LP Forum?
    Sure looks like it!
    :D

    Not that I'm complaining...just an observation.
    I'm the proud owner of a Historic '57 Goldie Darkback LP that kills me everytime I pick it up.
    I remember when we had alot of haters of the Gibson ouerve here.
    Everything seems to run in cycles...

    It's always been a big LP forum (though many were in the closet). There's been a lot of hate for LPs/Gibsons, but even during those waves of acrimony I always noticed that LPs in the emporium consistently got snapped right up while other killer guitars just sat.

    I must admit that for all the talk of fancy boutique stuff, I still have an LP that I love.

    I was just thinking earlier today that it looks like Strats are flavor of the month.

    The VOS series seems to be a slam dunk for gibby - the '58 i have is simply killer. fit, feel and tone all there.

    Yeah they are a bunch of Gibson lovin nazis over there.

    In any case, you'll find a love/hate thing goin on with Gibson here IME.

    On a personal note, my LP Classic+ is cool, but I wish I was more educated when I bought it. Now I'd LIKE a historic (With some conditions), but that's another story.

    I don't hate Gibson for the same reason I don't hate the Yankees - how can you hate something in another league you don't even care about?

    I have one Gibson, a nice 335 would make it two and probably all I'd ever own. I'm a Strat/Tele guy. I wouldn't trade my LP Classic either because everybody that I know who's a LP guy wants my guitar, so I keep it just to spite them. :) They hate me even more knowing that it sits at home most of the time never seeing the light of day.

    Everybody here knows I'm no fan of Gibson..........but I picked up a LP Standard Fadded that I'm just Ga ga about. I'm even going the WCR/RS Route and giving her the full treatment. I might even send it to a repairshop with a PLEK system to get it perfect. Gibson makes some good guitars.......but you gotta find them. And when I can do that for under $1500 (very rare ) I'm a seriously happy camper! :AOK
