Hey, so here is the deal. I got this wonderful deal that a guy presented to me. I give him my Marshall JCM Slash signature 2555 top. And i get his Gibson Les Paul standard 2008 desert burst. I just heard alot of stuff about those Les Pauls. as you know the neck is made asymetrical and the guitar is also lighter than normal Les Pauls. Does any of you know how much different the neck is compared to other Les Pauls? I just heard stuff about people that can't get used to the new neck profile... Is it a good deal for me? please shed some lights on this for me.

also i will say now that i can't try out the guitar beforehand since the guy lives in Netherlands and me in Denmark..

ALSO check out the actual song ''Shed some light'' by Shinedown Smilie It's a really good one!!!!

great deal

Hi,
I have an LP standard 2008 honey burst with an assymetric neck great guitar , until...
I bought now a new LP standard traditonal 1960 with a thin neck a week ago and you know what , since I have this guitar , i don't touch the other anymore,even this is now a Samash guitar but with '57 humbukcers and a 60 thin neck , hey man that is the end , and it cost much less!!!
Only disadvantage it is baked maple on the fretboard, but who cares if the sound is great and the necjk is the fastest i ever got in my hands!!
But hey LP 2008 version is a great guitar!!

oh, there is nothing wrong with my amp. i have 2 amps and im selling the one i don't really use. which is the Marshall JCM Slash signature 2555... But i can't really get it sold for some reason. Maybe people is just short on money, i don't know..

The other amp i just got back from repair, and it's playing like a dream again Smilie
