Posting here cause too lazy to join les paul forum I ended up going for my sg standard 2018 after initiating a search that was focused on les pauls. Still love the sg but something about the les paul is still grabbing at me and I plan on getting one. I have a few criteria, no pick guard, bound neck, dual PAF style (uneven wound) humbuckers, based on the 58 thru 61s, and lastly, a slim taper neck just like on my sg. Tried the asymetrical and not sure I like it and its probably best for me to stick with the same neck profile and not add that variable to my already questionable playing ability. But it looks like I am aiming for something that doesn't exist or at least has not been made in over 10 years. Anyone know what years I should be shooting for or if maybe gibson has plans to make a traditional or a standard lp with a slim taper neck next year?
