    I am sorry for your loss.

    BTW that ESP is super pretty. Great choice, and those are elite rock and metal machines.

    Unfortunate about the seem. I ordered mine without trying it as I bought it online, cant find a flaw with it except whoever strung it at gibson did a horrible job with the string windings, barely two wraps around the pegs, which to me wasn't a big deal since I was going to put a set of elixers on it anyways.

    It did come with the smallest child size strap, a screw driver, an actual photo of it on the build bench and some other case candy. The soft case it came with is super nice. Id almost just call it a case not a soft case.

    I got this Gibson Les Paul Tribute back in January. Its pretty nice, it has a maple neck instead of mahogany, and it has the weight relief. The pickups sound killer, I haven't even adjust the heights they sound killer through my 6505+. . Financed it for 99 a month on zz sounds. Only thing I've done is remove the pickguard, and I rotated the toggle switch so up is bridge, and down is neck, it just is nicer that way for tapping. And I changed the strings to elixir 9-46 and tuned it to Eb.



    Body Material: Mahogany
    - Top Material: Maple
    - Weight Relief: Ultra-Modern
    - Finish: Satin Nitrocellulose Lacquer
    - Neck Material: Maple
    - Neck Profile: Rounded
    - Fingerboard Material: Rosewood
    - Fingerboard Radius: 12" / 304.8mm
    - Number of Frets: 22
    - Frets: Low - Cryogenically Treated
    - Nut Material: Tektoid
    - Nut Width: 1.69" / 43.05mm
    - End-of-Board Width: 2.26" / 57.4mm
    - Inlays: Trapezoid
    - Hardware Finish: Nickel
    - Bridge: Aluminum Nashville Tune-O-Matic
    - Tailpiece: Aluminum Stopbar
    - Tuners: Vintage Deluxe w/ Keystone Buttons
    - Pick Guard: Cream
    - Control Knobs: Gold Top Hats
    - Switch Tip: Cream
    - Switch Washer: Cream (Not Mounted)
    - Jack Plate: Cream
    - Neck Pickup: 490R
    - Bridge Pickup: 490T

    The Open Cores (no cover), I think, would look awesome, but might be a bit too busy... the white/creme bobbins may clash a bit with the finish colors.

    Looking at the Fishman Fluence Modern (not the Humbucker ones) I like the Black Nickel look, but wondering if the Black plastic cover ones would be closer to the EMG "look"

Imposter syndrome plays a part too, i imagine. It's the other players and strangers on the internet that give us these doubts, whereas a mentor or guitar hero would probably say '"if this makes you excited to play, and you have the means, why wouldnt you?"

    OP still got a nice guitar that will last a long time, but "im not good enough for x" could have been "i've been playing for y years" and now its ok, if that makes sense? What if he went by how many hours he's put into it?

    Buy the thing that helps you have fun while you can. Buy the thing that makes your inner child giddy, that keeps the excitement and passion for playing going. Life is short.

    /rant

    Really, I want everyone to be more excited to play their gear. Life's tough right now. Shit sucks. Guitar should be fun.
    I've been playing since 2004, but didn't take lessons. Self taught by listening to tracks and playing along. I've always had "an ear" for music

    While I have always wanted to own a Gibson LP, I can now be happy with the cheaper LTD Deluxe, and pick up a cheaper LP Studio Winner on both sides. I may not be a pro player, but this will bring me to 9. Turning into a collector.

    Can't devalue those 4k guitars if all you do is take pictures of them and mime songs anyway.

    Makes a lot of sense. I guess I was thinking of Lucas and his 4k guitars who's at the other end of the spectrum when I wrote this.

    Ended up with this and a case. I saved enough to buy another guitar down the road, so I am happy with this! I already have a few other LTD Deluxe models, so I am familiar with them and they are great. The one I bought also has the stainless steel frets since it's a 2021 model

    A 1000-series LTD is nothing to be ashamed of. Quality guitar.
