I wish. I wish. I Wish.

I have an SG, Les Paul TV Special, Les Paul Jr,
but they don't have what the Standard offers in looks or sound.

Outstanding acquisition.

Thanks guys. I'm not much of a photographer so I wasn't able to capture a better pic of the flame.

Doug, I've a ? for you.

I just got a new case for one of my LPs.

The lids are different now. Not as deep.

The case won't accommodate the Les Paul Standard with a Bigsby.

The other Les Paul Standard I have, with no bigsby, the case fits except I have to force the lid down to latch it.

Does your case with this new Paul, close that way to?

Not sure about Bigsby dimensions but my new LP and SG cases are very tight fitting. Closing the lid requires a bit of wrangling but I think that's mostly seating the lid on the sides.

Really beautiful guitar J-Doug! That’s a lifelong friend for sure. And I’m a sucker for those brown and pink historic style cases they use, too.
Enjoy that Lester!

Thx Doug.

The new Gibson Les Paul cases are about 1/2 " narrower than the older cases.

They are definitely not the same depth.

The bigsby is no problem in these older cases. It's a "no go" in the new case.

It's cool, I just wanted to retire the 30 year old case, was still able to do that.


Also have to push the lid down a bit to latch it. But I'm happy with the new case really. They are nice.

PSA to anyone with a newer LP with these cases: DO NOT add a bigsby, case will not work once you do.

Enjoy the NEW LP! I WANT ONE!

Hi Doug,

That's a beautiful LP! In fact, it looks very similar to mine, which I bought in 2002 -- hard to believe that was 20 years ago now. Mine has the same kind of flamed top, the same heritage cherry finish. I was just playing it yesterday; man, it sounds good.

My case has an extra purple flap of material to cover the guitar in the case before the lid is closed. As you note, it's a tight fit.

Congratulations, Doug!

- Glenn

That satin cover is called a shroud. The only reason I know this is because Eric Clapton use to lament about his ‘59 LesPaul that had gotten nicked(stolen)which bothered him, but he really missed the brown case with the pink lining and satin shroud that laid over the guitar.
In fact, my Eastman mandolin has a shroud in its case.

Yeah, that’s me……chock full of worthless trivia!
