The Les Paul Thread!

Ok, I searched about 6 or 7 pages. Found a strat thread, a tele thread, various amp threads but no Les Paul threads. If there is one, link me and I'll close this one or whatever.

So in the other threads based on one instrument/ amp, you basically show off pictures of your gear (in this case, Les Pauls) and talk about them. And stuff. Ja?

Ok, here's my Les Pauls...

This is my 2010 Gibson Les Paul Standard in faded Honeyburst.





Got it about a month ago. I got it on ebay for 890. The only reason it was so cheap is the shop dropped it and split the wood under the nut on the back of the neck. They fixed it up and you can hardly see it. I heard it also makes it stronger too. I'll be keeping this guitar for years.

And this is my Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty





I got it about a year ago for my b'day. It's a very heavy guitar. Nearly 9kg. All gold is gold plated, grover tuners, mahogany and alder body. It's obviously the three pickup version. You can get some nice, nearly strat sounds out of the middle pickup. Obviously it's a lot cheaper than the Gibson, at 420. It just didn't have the power in the pickups I wanted and it was really heavy too. The high gloss finish on the back of the neck meant it wasn't that fast either.

There's mine done. Let's see your Les Pauls. Or Les Pauls that you want or admire!

probably trollin' like in that silly "guitars/brands to avoid" thread (which was actually just a massive troll thread).

I love my les paul even though i'm not really into les pauls so much (apart from the deluxe - beautiful rich chimey tone!). it's just theres something about the one i have that i can't quite put my finger on but i love it.

I like SGs better though

Yes i have owned and played a lot of different modells. They are badly buildt, not comfortable to play, way to expensiv. You pay to much for the name.

Im not trolling i really dislike Gibson.

That's my ESP/LTD EC-1000 on the right, in the Vintage Black finish. It is very nice

I'm looking at getting an Agile AL-3100 soon, in either the Cherry or Honey Sunburst finish. Can't decide though. What do you guys like better?

I guess you mean lbs. 9 kg would be ridiculous.

Anyway here's my Epi LP Standard Plus Top in Cherry Sunburst. I've had it for 2 months now, I bought it used for $ 575, they go for $730 new here.
