If its a Les Paul model, than yes. Even if you dont like it, you can sell it for quite abit to buy the gear you want.

this is the 90`s version

That is a Gibson The Paul. I only found an image on a rare guitar website so I would do the swap if I was you. They look nice and probably play nice.

This might be of some help:

I have owned a few The Paul guitars actually and bought and sold several as well. I never owned The Paul II they were made in the 90s. That link will give you the info you need to make your decision.


Sorry didn't realize someone else posted the link to the same web page.

I played a "the paul" for a few hours. It was my bowling coach's and we jammed for a while. Its a nice guitar. It was built for FEEL and SOUND rather than LOOKS. I really enjoyed playing it.

well based on this it sounds like i would like it
best YouTube video ever

I've played a "The Paul" about 5 years ago. It looked like a piece of furniture since it was plain dark stained wood. And it was definitely from the '70s. But, it sounded sweet through the 5watt Gibson tube amp that it supposedly came with. I think "The Paul" was supposed to be a student model.

That's not like any "The Paul" I've ever seen.

This is a link to a "The Paul" like the one I used to have. Mine developed an unfortunate crack in the body that ran between the pots and I had to get rid of it. Before that, though, I really liked it. It had an ebony fingerboard which I found a harder, smoother material than rosewood. It was pretty fast and had great tone and sustain. I'd consider getting another after I get a couple other choice axes first.
