theres already a les paul thread, but i dont think its been posted in in a long ass time, so i guess this is better than a necrobump.

to stay on topic, i've go two, an 07 r7 and an epi standard. anyone that goes around saying all gibsons/les pauls suck are idiots and should be castrated so they cant reproduce. its such an ignorant statement and i read it every day. pisses me off

Im not trolling i really dislike Gibson.

I don't know whether you actually have owned a lot of different Les Pauls or not but for argument's sake, we'll say you have.

Personally, I think they're very comfortable to play. Mine is pretty light and sits well. It is very nicely balanced and the headstock doesn't dive to the ground. The action is so low, it practically plays itself. Set up perfectly without me having to do anything. The build quality is amazing on mine. There's not a single thing that has gone wrong and not a blemish or anything.

Now, the price. Yes, I agree, they are VERY expensive. But it's because they are so desirable. A lot of the work is also done by hand. The wood is very high quality as with every other component on the guitar.

The amount of guitars they push out each day is massive. So not being able to understand that there might be a few (compared to the huge number made) is just arrogant and it sounds like you just got unlucky and got a few of the bad ones. Which, in my opinion, are still very good guitars. But I understand when you spend that much, you expect an equally quality instrument.

Now the sound. It's incredible. It's a very distinct and unique sound. And it's very versatile - another reason why it's so popular. You will hear them on jazz, blues, metal, classic rock, country and everything in between.

You're more than welcome to your opinion but just don't talk trash about them in a thread dedicated to them and for people who actually like them.

Thumbs up

Here's my '97 Gibson Les Paul Studio Double Cutaway:



This is my '99 Gibson Les Paul Classic:



I used to have a singlecut Gibson Les Paul Special, but replaced it with this superior '98 Hamer Special (I added the pickguard) doublecut; the stock P-90's are Seymour Duncan:

i quite like those too, mostly the ones with the active pickups - they are so clear and transparent sounding. I have often considered buying one but never really been able to justify buying a guitar with active pickups when they don't really match the styles of music that i play. i really like the old AR series double cutaways, too (now only available as a prestige model as far as i'm aware).
