5.0 out of 5 stars my best ever guitar, 16 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Gibson Les Paul Gary Moore BFG Lemon Burst Electric Guitar (Electronics)
A few years ago I bought a les paul classic which I gigged with but was never truly in love with and subsequently bought a Burny 57 lookalike which was much nicer to play and sounded better than the classic despite being about a third of the price. I was in a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band at the time and combined with the Marshall amp head and cab I was using I got a sound pretty close to Ed King with it as opposed to the rather tame sound I got with the LP Classic. When I left the band I kept the Burny but decided to see what I could part exchange the Gibson LP for without spending too much cash and after many weeks trying all sorts of alternatives I was offered the Gary Moore BFG. When I saw the BFG I said to the salesman "you must be joking,I would like a guitar that has actually been finished!" but when I tried it with a similar rig to mine I was absolutely blown away and couldn't believe that what I was hearing was actually me playing! Three years down the line I still can't put the thing down and can spend hours falling in love with the sound of it every day. I especially like the tone and volume control setup and firmly believe that all Les Pauls should have the same configuration as it saves so much time getting a good sound wherever I play and whatever amp I use. With this guitar you actually can sound like Gary Moore or whoever you want as it is an absolute breeze to play and does not weigh a ton like most other LPs. Well done Gibson for giving us a truly legendary guitar which they will have to prise out of my hands when I die!
