Are you buying new? If so, think again. For some reason or other, Gibson's QC department is asleep at the wheel. Read here.

Gibson QC isn't that bad in spite of the horror stories you've heard.


TS, I'd take the Classic Custom off the list. If you really want Ebony boards and Custom appointments, just shell out for a Custom. Now a Classic vs Standard is about tastes really. If you really don't mind not having a flame and like the slimmer necks, I'd get the Classic, it's loads cheaper and if you swap them with burstbuckers, you essentially have a Standard. If you can't live with out the flame and a huge, fat neck, get a Standard.

I have the classic.


IT'S AWSOME!

People say that they are weight reducing the new gibson's, but who cares, if it sounds good, then get it! Mine is pretty light, its actually like 1 pound lighter than my Guitar Teacher's Les Paul Standard thats from 1997, mines 2007.

I'd say that the Classics and Standards are great, I haven't tried the Custom Classic, it probably would sound pretty good though.

They've been weight relieving Gibson guitars forever! They probably started some time during the eighties. The weight relief is really a love/hate thing. Some people like the heavier Pauls because the heavier ones tend to have more sustain and a darker tone. Others like the weight relieved ones because they're, well, lighter and offer more resonance.

Personally, I like to feel the guitar I'm playing while I'm playing it. I'm a sucker for the heavy ones!

I'd like the normal weight and sustain of a Les Paul, but I tend to like the brighter sound more. But, I also like the Dark sounding guitars, those are sick too.

It's not like it's a huge difference anyways.
