Please take my advice. I've been playing .. for money .. for 45 years.

Wait

Give it six months. More likely a year. Right now, EVERYTHING music .. pedals, amps, guitars ... everything is OVER .. THE .. RAINBOW expensive.

In addition, and keep in mind I play Gibson and Martin and nothing else, but Gibson .. has .. uh .. LOST THEIR MINDS. The CEO there wants to re-position the company as the Tesla or Maserati of guitars or something.

That ain't rock and roll. That's Doc Rock. Doctors who enjoy playing on the weekend.

Furthermore, please let me say this in the strongest possible terms I can express .. Gibson Ain't What She Used To Be. Get you an OLD Gibson .. and by old .. I mean .. Pre-1990.

Otherwise, the best "slickdeal" you can get on a Gibson guitar is ..

.. to buy an Epiphone.

I own no Epiphones so I do not have a dog in the fight. I own NINE Gibson guitars and probably .. oh, 70 Gibsons over 45 years.

I don't lay my hands across a Gibson today if it is new. It makes me want to cry. Something so excellent, so beautiful ... is gone.

Get an old one, hold on to it, sell it for twice what you paid in five years.

I have no alternative electric guitar I could point you to at this time. They are all junk from China and Malaysia and, God forbid, Korea. If you must buy a new electric, Epiphone is as close to an old Gibson as you are probably going to get.

But still, they feel cheap and they do not have the Gibson sound because of the pickups.

The greatest guitar I ever played in my life is a 1984 Gibson Flying V Designer Series. It hangs on the wall right there next to my Martins.

I've owned 13 Gibson Flying V's in my life.

No other guitar is even close.

That's my wisdom of 45 years of playing guitar professionally I can pass along.

I never post. I said this because I have vast and extensive knowledge on the subject matter.

And my opinion is the general consensus of all advanced guitar players today. All of them.

Right now is a pandemic and everybody is cooped up inside and prices are insane. INSANE.

Don't waste your money.
Been playing for over 50yrs, yes agree with some of what you say, disagree on some too. The early 80's to early/mid 90's Gibson was making some great guitars. From there fell apart, trying to update where they had no business doing so. Who the heck needed the Robotuners? Nobody!! That's just one sad example where they went trying to add features while cutting back quality. Also why they went Bankrupt in 2019. However the new Standard 50's &60's Les Paul's are far better than they've been for years, far better. Quality has improved immensely. Promised myself around 15 yrs ago would never buy a new Gibson again. Thought the new promises from the new people in charge were all marketing. Until I had hands on a few of them and was very pleasantly surprised. Of course they play like a New Guitar, they'll have to break in and age over time, but it was the same back in the day, new guitars never played terrific out of the box like they did once broken in. Only issue I have with Gibson now is the prices are freaking high!! Custom shop especially. The LP Standards are in line compared to Fender and other American Made Guitars, when comparing apples to apples. The Price on this Guitar is very good in today's climate.

Epiphones are not in the same league, Frets for the most part are poorly done and rarely level, electrics and most pickups are subpar. Bodies and necks having multiple pieces (like 5 across the body) of wood glued together!! Ya do pay for what ya get. For the price not bad, but to compare against a Gibson, not even close. Have both brands and repair and set up all makes for people.

Also pre 1980, there was some horrid Gibson's made back then, pancake bodies, maple necks, was similar to the early 2000's but not near as bad. However they did do some Great ones in the era too. Don't get me wrong just pointing out not everything was perfect back in the day. Perhaps ya should (with open mind) go play a few of the new ones.

Not sure if you've ever checked out or played the Heritage Guitars? The H-150 is superior to the Gibson (today vs today). For those that don't know the Heritage story check it out on Youtube. Original Gibson Facility in Kalamazoo that a bunch of employees (some top level ones) didn't want to move to Memphis when Gibson changed manufacturing locations. They purchased the Plant and all the equipment and started their own version of Gibson Guitars. They make them still the old ways on the same equipment the famous 58-59-60 Les Paul's were done. Quality is Excellent and you get features on the H-150 (Les Paul equivalent) that are only available on the LP' Custom shop models, like long neck tenon, one piece (not 2) mahogany back etc.

Cheers

For anyone looking for one of these, is a great price.
You sound like my parents. If they want the guitar, it's up to them.

Excellent deal, I was considering this one for a while. Mini-humbuckers are great, but you can swap them with P90s if you like.

any good used les paul is over 3500-6500, so for me, getting my foot in the door 1890 is fine. I'll grow into more advanced quality in time Rome wasn't built in 10 years

Some of what the poster above says I agree with, some not. I'm not convinced prices are gonna come down. Everything is more expensive now, inflation is insane. Unless the whole economy goes into another recession, high prices are here to stay. Us gear heads have been waiting for the instrument market to crash for a year now. "As soon as restrictions are lifted/as soon as people go back to work, the market will flood with barely used guitars!" Hasn't happened. Used gear is still going up.

As far as Gibson quality, I don't think they're quite trying to be a "luxury brand", but they definitely know their reputation. Their quality was suspect since the mid 00s, but in the past few years have come a long way and Gibson fans seem to think they're getting back to where they used to be. As always a guitar is only as good as the person who made that particular one. Try it out, return if it's not what you want. There are lemons and amazing guitars from every year in guitar history.

If the pickups are the only issue, the 59's have the Gibson burstbuckers. Why not go with those?
