Gibson Les Paul Tribute 2020

Made the mistake of entering Guitar Center today. What a custer____! I requested entry into the high end acoustic room. They unlocked 1 guitar and never came back. I played the Taylor 214 Deluxe. Fell in love, of course, but it’s next on my want list maybe. It is much bigger than I’m used to but it is gorgeous!  I stumbled onto a used Gibson Les Paul Tribute and squirreled it to a corner with a mess of Gretsch’s and PRS’s. I haven’t bought a new guitar in months. I’ve wanted to get an electric for a while so, here she is.

I’ve named her Honey. She’s heavy. Perfect fit into my Arsenal. Looked for a strap to match. Ended up stealing Penny’s Walker & Williams red and gold tooled leather Strap.  Ordered a new strap for Penny.  Got the one I originally wanted for Penny. A Gretsch that was made to match perfectly.

So, here’s the daily Guitar drama. My new Honey, a Les Paul Tribute was a used guitar. I checked it out very well BUT yesterday I found a teenie tiny spot on the heel of the neck. I thought I’d spilled something on it. Probably coffee or gravy. So, I wiped it, then took my fingernail to it. Mistake.  Turns out it was a bubble in the nitrocellulose satin lacquer. Called around the area. Had a Zoom with Gibson guitars.  Cost about $300-400 plus S&H. Might as well return it and step up.   So, back to GC this am and returned little Honey. Then shelled out the extra $400, bought a brand spanking new one same model and color. Built 6/21.

End note:

Cause of the bubble, a cheap guitar stand. The fake rubbery foam reacts with the satin lacquers. So, my cheap guitar stand I bought is going to get covered in velvet to protect the finish on my other guitars. I may end up buying a wooden cabinet. I showed my son some on Amazon. He says he can build one once the weather cools off. The Gibson blogs talk about this Nitrocellulose peeling a lot. Live and Learn.
