That's the LS 160 you had on order, right? I like the grain on that one, very nice. Congrats.

The ES, also new? They arrived together?

Well, my next question was, which one did you play first.
Both are very nice.

One thing is weird, and maybe someone here knows the answer. On the catalog the ES188 is what's listed, on the sticker inside the body, it's labeled as a ES196.
Should I be worried about this?

No worries for you i wouldn't think... just the model number increased because they raised the price.

Nice duo of guitars... enjoy the hell out of them !!

I see you don't mess around, you went for the ES188...wow!

There's been a very recent price increase, the 188 changed to 196...the catalogue can't keep up with the price increases.

I sold my Gibson ES335 to be able to afford these two.

Nice LS 160. I'm looking at buying one myself. Are the necks closer to a chunky "D" shape, or a smaller "C" shape?

To be 100% honest I hadn't played a Les Paul since I sold my 98 custom 5 years ago, but the neck is certainly chunkier than the ES335 that I just sold, so it would lead me to believe that it's more of a beefy neck than your current Gibson LP standards.

That said, the neck does feel positively awesome, and my two friends that played it, who are hardcore Gibson guys both agreed that the action on this is better than their les Paul's.
