“Long Live The Les Paul”

Weight, Neck Access, Spares Availability

I bought my wine red Les Paul Standard 10 years ago (approx). It was my first professional quality instrument and just by playing and owning it, I felt as though my ability had jumped by a factor of 10 and my instant rock star pose value just shot off the scale. Plus, the most under-rated...

Sound, image, built to last

Some may find it a bit heavy

An Introduction About a month ago I decided that it was time I purchased a new electric guitar. My faithful 1988 Gibson Les Paul has served me well for the last 9 years and is still going strong. The thing is though it’s now starting to increase in value and become a nice little investment...

“only a gibson is good enough”

build quality, sound, image enhancement

price, not suited to every style

OK, I've got a quick story for you. On my sandwich year from university I wanted to work somewhere a bit different so I got a job in Toronto, Canada. I went over there armed with my student loan and decided the time had come to buy a guitar that was a little bit special. So after a few weeks of...

Price, and the green tuning keys.

What can I say? I've had my Gibson Les Paul for years now, and it is easily the best guitar I've ever played! Not only is it beautiful, but it's incredibly nice to play. As for the price, well... There's just too much to say about this guitar, so I'll do it in lots of stages. APPEARANCE:...

Fat solos and chunky power chords

Not as versatile as a Strat, rather heavy and 'unc...

Got this from Melody Music in Kuantan, Malaysia for RM 4 800 (700 GBP or 1 400 USD) back in 1996. It has a heavy mahogany body with a slightly figured arched orange-red sunburst maple top. The body has no upper-bout chamfering where you rest your right arm (as on a Strat); and this does get a tad...

That sound, image, hold their price

Price, build quality

I ve had mine for 10 months now and I love it to death. The 60's style fit my hand beautifully and the weight is well balanced and not too heavy. Sounds. I gigg mine weekly and it produces a deep rich clean sound for thoes mellow tunes, a Peter Green type overdrive for blues right through to hi...

“Gibson Les Paul”

published 14/08/2006

Great sound, style and feel

Expensive

I found this to be a great guitar. I can say for sure that it does make you feel great playing it. To hear and feel the quality of a Gibson improves playing immesurably. The only thing is that they are expensive, so if you are considering buying one, you have to think is it worth it for you or...

“Gibson makes Standards”

published 26/10/2004

high quality of materials and sound

too big price

I can't explain why i am so happy when i keep in my hands Gibson and play it. It is a strange feeling. None of other guitars can make me feel myself so good as Gibson. For many years Gibson was making quality instruments which made the standards of rock music all over the world. Les Paul Standard...
