    Today was my lucky day! :aok I acquired a used 2012 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro in beautiful black in like new condition with case candy and OHSC. Charlie, my nosy cat, seems to like it too. The neck on the guitar was described as 50's but it feels more 60's to me. I'm not complaining because it's ideal for me. It has a BB3 in the neck and a 57 Classic + in the neck, both coil tapped. The fretboard is a gorgeous rosewood and the neck binding looks especially nice on this one. I really like the chrome hardware and the Grover locking tuners are a nice touch. It weighs around 8 pounds I'm guessing and is extremely comfortable strapped on. My camera battery crapped out so only got one picture but will post more later. Here she is:

    Nice enjoy it. I have a 2009 Traditional Pro and it has a 60's neck. I know it has a BB3 in the bridge. Satin finish back.So its the same guitar I have. The Traditional Pro was a Guitar Center run. Anyway in over 25 years of playing its the best guitar I have owned.
