    Default New Les Paul day!

    Picked up this yesterday. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. When I got it home and plugged it into my setup, I had to turn the threshold on my noise gate almost all the way down from where I normally keep it set to get sound. Maybe it's just the 490/498 pickups, compared to the pickups I'm normally used to? It feels and looks great though.

    Nice looking guitar!
    I've never owned a Les Paul, but have always loved the necks and the action. Congrats on your new toy.

    How does the black back look with the honey burst? It looks weird to me in all the pictures I've seen, but I haven't seen any in person to accurately judge it.

    I think it looks fine. For the price, I don't mind it at all. Who really sees the back anyway?

    I also ordered nickel pickup covers for it.

    Bought a 2015 les Paul traditional earlier this year. Their quality has come a long way.

    Really love the 2015 line. My traditional has the 1959 tribute humbuckers in it and they switched them this year. Not as hot. Love my les Paul.

    You guys have some beauties there! Here's a quick pic of my '13 Traditional:

    So how does the studio play? I've actually thought about getting a 2015 model if it plays pretty good and has tone.

    It plays pretty well. It was already set up nicely. Obviously, the neck is a bit thicker than I'm used to, and I'm trying to dial these pickups in. That being said, I've never been a Les Paul guy, so it'll take some time to get comfortable with the differences.
