the g.a.s thread.

Hmmm, there's all sorts of thoughts going through my head. This is a bit weird because it shouldn't really appeal to me but there's something about the idea I like.

I've stated before I don't want any more black guitars and I have also mentioned that I'm not the biggest fan of the pickguard on the new Gibson Les Paul DC Junior. So why am I suddenly gassing for a black 2019 Junior? This is why: https://m.thomann.de/gb/gibson_lp_junior_tribute_dc_2019_we.htm

£523 delivered! It's cheaper than the other colours at Thomman for some reason. I said to my self that I might pick one of these up second hand if I could get one around £500 so this has got my attention. They are £699 in the UK stores. Since the scratch plate makes it look different I feel like it's inviting some mods, namely gold hardware (that might well change though) and a humbucker. I have a couple of other ideas too.

I'm going to have a proper think about this at work tomorrow.

Gold hardware on one of those would be MEGA cool.
Just sayin...

LP GAS.
And considering the price of the 2019 models?
This is a bargain
It’s a 2014 Gibson LP Standard Plus and at 8.4lbs (chambered) not too weighty
And DAT TOP...:cold:

I'm slightly woried it might start getting a bit too bling for a Junior. Custom shop Special for reference:



It's a nice combo though. Decisions, decisions!

I think that as the guitar has the gold script Gibbo logo means adding gold parts could work.
If it was me - and it’s not:D
I would go gold bridge, gold P90 poles and gold input jack
BUT black pickguard screws and black/gold speed knobs to tone down the pickguard area.
:cold:

Another reason I'm not sure if I want to go gold is I can't seem to find the pickup I want with gold pole pieces in the UK. I think I'd have to order one direct form Dimarzio.

Dimarzio DP209 BK


It's a Super Distortion in a P90 body.

This is the knob for chrome hardware:



I think I'd want to ditch the tone for a series/parallel/split three way mini toggle.

Also a Shadow SH124 kill pot, I enjoy the killpot on my Heafy.



By black/gold speed knobs I mean...

I think I have a spare set in my parts drawer if you end up wanting them btw
:)
They would be perfect if I went with gold.
