    Did you get the Tobacco burst? It was available a few minutes ago.

    Hope no one minds the small derailment, but do these have the same narrow string spacing as the 6 string LP's?

    A 24.75" 7 with narrow string spacing sounds comfy for me.

    If I wasn't saving for a Kemper I'd snatch one of these.

    Tempting for that price but... really? 50mm nut width? That's almost 8 string territory. 48mm is too much for me, I though Gibson would use 45mm because the narrow string spacing in their 6 string guitars. This is very sad for me...

    Standard 6-string LPs have 43mm (very slightly wider, 1.695") spacing. It's the bridge spacing that's slightly narrower than the Fender standard.

    I just hate thinking of how clever that guy probably thought it was to have a "VII" inlay snuck in there. Ruined it.

    Maybe I’m just not sensitive to it, but I have some of these LP7s and 7s with a 45mm nut width and all kinds of stuff in between. I don’t think I’ve ever noticed the difference when playing them.

    Wouldn't have bought one but it's a pretty cool deal. (Although I like LP necks and overall sound I can't stand the body digging into my right arm)
    Looks like this is a EU wide thing, musicstore.de apparently had the same.
