is there a specific reason you want a gibson or do you just want the name?
#4
les paul standard or classic
Gear

Gibson Les Paul Standard
Fender American Strat
Taylor 214ce
Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier (about to be Voodoo Modded)
Keeley TS-808
Boss GT-10 Processor
Boss RC-20xl

i'd say go for the classic. the pickups have a bit more bite than those in the standard. both will sound great, but you won't get as good of a metal tone from a standard.
my gear:
gibson les paul classic
epiphoen les paul standard
fender standard fat strat
peavey valveking 112
boss me-50

By the sounds of things, you have no clue what you want at all and only want a Gibson because Slash has one.

I believe you have deduced his reason, sadistic_monkey. You are an intelligent person.

its not because of slash iwant a gibson..,,,,, i have an ibanez,,,,now i want a gibson so i can drop tune without prob,,,,, and i like the style of gibson les paul,,,,,,,,,,LES PAULS::::
#12
i'm guessing your ibanez has a double-locking trem? because a gibson won't drop-tune any better than most guitars out there... are you just sick of messing with the trem?
EDIT: never mind, i checked out your guitar... it'll handle drop tunings just as well as any gibson will.

Shit, I'm so pathetic.

[quote="'[BurnTheDusk"]']I agree, tone does sound better the closer your genitals are to the ground.

You can drop tune any guitar... Besides, there are better guitars for less (Schecter c-1 classic is 850, same wood and neck thru, not to mention better pups). Schecter FTW.

dude, are you fucking 10? learn how to use a fucking keyboard.
also, gibsons rule. but you might wanna stick to that ibanez. i have a feeling you'll quit playing in a few months.

#19
come on guys, lets take it easy on the kid. if he thinks he deserves a gibson and mommmy and daddy want to pay for it why not? i mean after all, the les pauls are uber cool, cuz slash plays them


*sarcasm meter explodes*
#20
An Epiphone Les Paul Standard + a valve amplifier would be your best bet, TS. A Gibson would get you the right look, until all eyes fall on your Vox DA-5. If you can find a Marshall DSL, that'd match your Slash aspirations close enough.

Just saying... Les Pauls have a shorter scale length than your ibanez. This means that you would have to use thicker strings to aceive a decent down tuned sound. I have a les paul and love it but I never really down tune at all.

i just buyed a new 30 watt marshall,,,,,

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

He's no kid, he's 17 years old. Only reason he types like **** is because he's from Scandinavia. Most people here can barely write in their native language, so cut him some slack
