Unless this is private joke....
The links Eddy gave are fine, there are 3 50s Gibson Les Pauls (including a nice one with p90s). There are Epiphones too, but as Mr. D said, those Gibsons are there.

Same list, just filtered by Gibson only:

None of them are in stock, I don't see these mythical 3 in stock Standards...

Ahh quite. Err, yep, err, as you were. Errr. Gosh, I think I've just had an epiphany ...!

Was only trying to help Guv, soz! :oops:

A mate of mine has just ordered a weighted piano type keyboard, stocks were very low on those too.
I bought two mic’s before lockdown and that’s all.

There's only the left hand version of the L-00 deluxe in stock but there are three '50s Les Paul Standards.

My wife got excited when she found the L-00 Deluxe but hadn't spotted it was a lefty. Shame because it was a good price too (about £500 off list if I recall correctly).

Ideally I'd like to get at least one them from Andertons because I've got loyalty points to spend with them. I'd read on the BBC website that sales had increased due to people having more free time in lockdown, but they implied it was mostly starter kits selling out.

The only thing I've bought during lockdown is a Line6 Pod go that I'm still getting to grips with due to the sheer number of options.

Phew!!

I thought it one of my better efforts, worthy of at least 3 new keyboards :D

But it's not a proper guitar forum is it? I mean nobody has come to blows about whether or not modellers have the same 'feel' as valve amps or accused somebody of being Dentist because they own a PRS. It’s all far too civilised on here.

So, having just bought a Trampas Green left-handed PRS SE Custom 24 as a memorial to Joan, does that now mean I can extract teeth and charge lots of money for doing so? Talk about unexpected benefits.

I'm off to the shed to get my pliers out the tool box.

Regards, Simon.

You'll need the Porsche as well if you're going to be actually pulling teeth.

Sorry but ownership of an SE PRS doesn't count. You need a Private Stock model to qualify.

Doh! But it looks like a private stock from a distance.

Damn, so my Skoda Yeti 4x4 doesn't count?

I though it was hairdressers that had the Porsche.

Skoda Yeti is just a budget Porsche Cayenne, they're both VW's at heart, you'll be fine. :D
