NGs&PD!!!

So yeah Ive been dying to get a mahogany body guitar for quite sometime. And I came across this 2011 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. I usually dont like Gibsons cause well Gibson is Gibson..... But every once in a while they will make a totally kick ass guitar and this is one of those. It plays SO well. This LP has none of the things that I disliked about Gibsons in the past. Its just glorious!
I even like the stock Burstbucker Pro/490R pickups. I mean Ill prob change them later but for now they are cool. Its nice that this has Coil taps and Grovers and not the ....ty Kulsons that dont stay intune EVER! I do have a set of Locking Grovers on the way since I just love locking tuners......


I also have REALLY wanted a thinline nylon string with a cutaway and electronics that wasnt too expensive. I tell my buddy this at the store and hes like "I have just the thing!" It was a Yamaha APX 24 Fret thinline nylon string with electronics that was used and in great condish! I snagged that guy up as well.

I also bought some new pedals. I get new pedals SO often that I rarely post them here but these ones are pretty cool so I thought Id post them as well...


So on to the pics!!!!!

Nice paul, looking forward to a review on the freeze too. Looks like a fun pedal.

Show me a truly awesome guitar for under $1000 and I'll show you hateful lies.

Thanks guys I actually picked up a Blackstar HT-Boost and a Fender Hot Rot Pro JR 15 amp as well. Yet I somehow forgot to post them in this thread. I guess I kinda went all out this week....

Man Im really REALLY liking this LP. Ive done a few upgrades so far. 1 being the stock Grovers swapped out for Locking Grovers. Then Ive got a Graphtech Reso Max Bridge with String Saver Saddles and a Graphtech TUSQ Nut on the way. And a Tone Pros Locking Stop Bar. Im thinking about changing the stock tone pots to some No-Load Controls to take the tone controls out of the circuit. Then having a master coil tap instead of one on each volume control. As far as the pickups go... I think Im cool with the neck pickup (for now) but I might change the bridge pickup to the Andy Timmons Dimarzio. Other than that its pretty awesome.....
