Hey guys,
my parents said if I get an A on both my Geography and French exams, they'd buy me a Les Paul of my choice. I'm torn between two... which do you guys think looks better the Apline one or Cherry Sunburst?
Cheers guys :P

DAMN you got some cool parents! I'm a sucker for the cherry sunburst but the white is very sleek and clean looking. I'd opt for the burst but it's really your own preference.

Washburn WD15SCE acoustic electric
Carvin DC727 (ordered! The wait is driving me nuts!)

Erm... What LP are we talking about? I can't think of a model that has both alpine white and cherry sunburst as finishes, so I'm going to guess they are different models?

EDIT: Oh, unless they are tribute models?
It depends on the model, really, Alpine white customs or studios are great looking, but the Tribute alpine white looks like an albino sheep...

If you're looking at Alpine White's, which are classy as hell, it's either gunna be a Custom which will set you back £2500 for a new one at least or a studio, which will be between £700 - £1000 depending on the year.

Basically, it doesn't matter what the colour is. It's how it plays and how it sounds that matters. Go on that, not the colour.

Unless you can't stand a heavy guitar, get a Traditional, as Tom and Chris already said. They're wonderful guitars if they suit you.

You sure you parents mean a real Les Paul or just Les Paul-ish?

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

Quote by dspellman
The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

There are sooo many variations of the Les Paul. But if they do really mean ANY LP of your choice, get a custom shop R9 haha

+4 or 5 whatever number its been plused to now. As an owner of a Traditional all I can say is its like guitar sex in my hands whenever I want to hold it, its the type of guitar that when I am at work I think about playing it, seriously nice beast. Don't go by online pictures either when selecting a finish they look completely different in picture and in real life, I bought my Trad to make a tibute guitar to Jimmy Page, and from online pictures I thought honeyburst was too light, but when I saw it in the store I knew it was the closest I could get.

I like how everyone's telling him to get a gibson, I doubt his parents know about guitars or know how much a REAL gibson is worth ( unless his parents are rich then its not a problem ) so they probably only ment a "les paul shape guitar"

even better, get an MIJ tokai, bacchus, burny, edwards, orville by gibson...

Or a Gibson Les Paul Traditional.

Agile.



I have/had 5 agiles ... and beside my 3200-slim which i love to death , the 3100 , 3010 doesnt come close to my 2001 -gibson les paul standard . im no gibson fan boy , in fact their quite expensive

agile are very hit or miss , there good for the price , but most of them doesnt match higher end guitar . ive had a few and most are for sell now cause i couldnt use to them . im keeping my 3200 slim which is simply great ,


but i wouldnt say any of the agile ive owned blew away the 1994 les paul standard i had and the 2001 les paul standard i have now .
Bedroom rock star :

- Gibson Les paul Standard 2001 Honeyburst .

What you really need is a new amp.

I have been hearing about MG amps lately. I have heard good about them, but only a few times have they been talked about here.
