so you see ibanez=shred

basically is the stereotype
but can you shred just as easy on a les paul ?

i was wondering cause i was looking to get a les paul copy and throw some emgs in it and just do some custm stuff to it

but i want it to be a shred guitar

Of course you can.
By coincidence a few shredders got into Ibanez, more copied, more copied them, etc.

Then pirates is your choice... oh wait...
On the serious note, what don't you like about it? Being too thin?

you can ask Buckethead about shredding on a Les Paul. it's harder for some. mainly, ibanez is chosen by most 'shredders' because of the thin neck.
Ibanez RG321MH (Air Classic/Tone Zone)
Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)
Blackstar HT-20 (Scumback 55 speaker/ Tung Sol tubes)
TC Electronic Nova Repeater
Lava Cables Clear Connect, Soar and Mini ELC

You can shred on an LP, the action can be set pretty low on them so its actually easier than you think, just look at Matt Heafy (not a shredder i know but he could play pretty fast) or indeed buckethead and Zakk Wylde , its a bit harder but not impossible, plus its a lot more rewarding to be able to shred on a Les Paul plus the tone destroys any Ibanez imo, especially with EMG's

dude i have a lp studio and an ibanez rg4ex1 and they both have awsome action. it just depends on what type of guitar you are into.

so a lp with emg's has some serious tone



EMG's plus Les Paul=Tone Orgasm, if its metal/shred anyway

Only reason you wouldn't be able to shred it is if it's too heavy for you or something. But seriously you can shred on anything really except the hello kitty guitar.

How is Matt Heafy not a shredder? He practically exemplifies everything I dislike about the shred genre....
