I'm going out to a music store today, and I know I'm getting a Gibson, I just really need good advice on which one to get, like which model, etc.

I need your help, so, any ideas on which one I should get?

It depends entirely what style of music you want to play.
I've got a Gibson 335 dot which I think is the bees knees, however, I wouldn't contemplate using it for playing metal or anything really heavy.

I would suggest you go the the music shop and try every guitar they have in the shop until you find one you really like. Don't buy a Gibson just for the name!

You are completely under estimating me! I dont want it for its name, I've tried one out, I have a good budget, I WANT ONE!

Whoa, whoa, calm down.

1. This goes in the Electric Guitar forum

2. He's right, try out lots of different guitars, not just Gibsons. Who knows, you might find something you like more. And like Cecil Gonzales said, there are different Gibsons you can get.

SG=Light guitar, I play some metal on an SG

Les Paul=A bit heavier than a normal size guitar, good for different styles, but bad upper fret access, not good for shredding

335: Blues and jazz sound good on a 335

Flying V: Great metal guitar, hard to sit down with at first

Explorer: I don't know much about an explorer

Firebird: My friend Sam plays a Firebird and he plays bluesish stuff, but it's a pretty good guitar. I don't know much about it other than my friend plays blues on it.

thing is, for punk rock, and rock, I think a Les Paul standard will be your deal. But then there are no 2 gibsons thatll be the same. Work out which model you like best, and try a whole bunch of them. You gotta get your perfect Gibson man, otherwise there's no point.
Thanks for reading

Gibson makes some fine guitars from your basic Les pauls, Explorers, Sg's, Es series and others.

I'm a fan of the Les Paul Custom but they can be heavy. Explorers are nice.

Without knowing what style of music you play and your budget it is tough to make a recommendation. For example the tones of a les Pauls vary from dark to somewhat bright, going from your basic, studio, standard, custom and the other models.

Yeah you're being pretty arrogant. If you don't want it for the name, then why do you only want a gibson and won't consider any others?

For punk i'd suggest a Les Paul, but there are many different kinds of Les Pauls and it's up to your own personal preference which one you like best. I'd recommend one with a cutaway though because it's hard to acces the upper frets without a cutaway.
