I actually picked this up last weekend but just getting around to posting today. It’s a Gibson Les Paul VOS Beano from a special run they did back in 2010. I’m really digging the neck as it’s a bit smaller than my old R9. The guitar is very resonant and stays in tune better than any Lester I’ve ever owned. Super Pumped with this purchase!

That's pretty!

Was that the one at Stang?
No, although I saw that one on the website. I got mine in a local private sale.

I remember playing one of those at my local L&M. It was 6, 7 years ago, maybe more. That says something. IMO, still the nicest Les Paul I'd ever played. Plainer top than that one, but just a perfect player. Just loved the neck.

I balked at the price (about 1/2 what CS's go for now LOL) and regret not looking more seriously at it. With 2 LP's, I thought I didn't need a 3rd (and probably really don't). But I've never forgotten about that one. You're a lucky fella. Enjoy!

I agree, the neck is just perfect for my hands and it just sounds incredible. I had been searching for a Humbucker guitar for a while and as much as I love Les Pauls, I was thinking PRS for the tuning stability and overall feel. Once I tried this one my search was over. I have to sell a few things to keep the Minister of Finance (Wife) happy but I couldn’t pass this one up.
