5.0 out of 5 stars Simply a Fabulous Guitar !! 21 Mar 2010
The latest incarnation of the iconic Gibson Les Paul that goes back over 50 years. Superb playability & perfect balance. A tone monster with infinite variation in balance between the pickups by using the volume & tone controls. Check out the gorgeous wood finishes rather than the Goldtop or Black finishes, and some of the slightly older models can have better weight & build quality. Take time to consider all the different models when paying this sort of money, and make sure the guitar is professionally set up before you accept it. Again, this is a fabulous guitar which will give years of pleasure if you buy wisely & take the trouble to maintain the guitar properly. Please check my profile & contact me if I can be of any help. David :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't 18 Oct 2009

If you want to buy a Gibson Les Paul, don't do it over the internet. It's good for getting information and seeing pictures of the different models, but you will want to hold the guitar in your hand before you buy it for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply The Best - Forget The Rest! 5 Feb 2011
By Needler
I've had my Gibson Les Paul Standard (Classic)for 12 years now and really nothing else comes close in terms of power and great playing (I've been playing seriously for 18 years). If you really want a GLP go for the Classic, Standard or Custom. Don't bother with buying a Studio, an Epiphone or equivalent copy, just save your cash up (it may take longer but it'll be worth it) and look around on eBay or Guitarist magazine etc. Don't get a cheaper substitute 'cos you'll regret it Do your research first and sort out a budget - look to spend around 800 - 1100 on a standard and up to 1500 for a custom -(both used prices as new prices have gone through the roof since VAT rise and increase in entertainment goods prices).
Provided the instrument is ok with no neck breaks or cracks etc it'll give you great service, but you need to spend a little on it from time time getting it set up properly by a pro (don't risk ballsing it up yourself unless YOU are a pro)and fret dressing etc. It's money well spent. It'll also help retain a resale value should you decide to sell it on. However, all other guitars that I've used along side my GLPC since end up being flogged as the GLP wipes them all - I play rock & metal primarily but the GLP is pretty much like a strat in that you can use it to play anything. If your a serious player, suggest replacing the machineheads with Grovers as they're much better than the Klusons that adorn the Standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow!!!! 4 May 2009
If you are looking for the guitar of your dreams, look no further. Gibson have managed to make a sexy, vintage style guitar and modernise it a bit. From it's pickups you can get the Les Paul classic tones with a modern twist. It is a very versitile guitar, you can play pretty much any style of music from blues to classic rock and it will always sound amazingly amazing. It combines the right ratio of wieght and tone to suit all your musical needs and comfort. The new style of neck is very comfortable and unique. Buy It!!!!
