  • Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop (1971)

    Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop (1971) - "Classic old school P90 tone"

    11/20/11

    If you ever wanted to have that old school P90 tone, this is the guitar you want to look for. It has everything about it that just screams "that" tone when you happen to think of P90s. The guitar features a mahogany body with a maple top, mahogany …

  • Gibson Les Paul Deluxe (1974)

    Gibson Les Paul Deluxe (1974) - "Extremely heavy but sounds good"

    11/20/11

    This guitar was built around the Norlin era, and as a result, there were quite a few inconsistencies during that time. One of them was the famous pancake body that they happened to utilize on certain guitars, and this is really no exception to that.…

  • Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Antique Gold Top Ltd ed

    Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Antique Gold Top Ltd ed - "Limited edition Deluxe"

    11/20/11

    Gibson is pretty famous for releasing limited edition guitars with very few changes, and this is really no different. This guitar is the limited edition version of the famous Les Paul Deluxe, but it's really not too different from the others I've pl…

  • Gibson Les Paul Deluxe (1971)

    Gibson Les Paul Deluxe (1971) - "Heavily modded 71"

    11/20/11

    This is a unique, one off that some customer modified quite heavily, so this review might not be the best review out there for this particular guitar. Keep that in mind when reading this as it's almost a different instrument. The guitar features a …

  • Gibson Les Paul Deluxe 1969 Reissue

    Gibson Les Paul Deluxe 1969 Reissue - "Close to the original"

    11/20/11

    One of the more successful P90 equipped guitars out there was the old Les Paul Deluxe that Gibson used to have around forever. They have since reissued the old, classic 1969 model which happens to be one of my favorite models, personally. The guita…

  • Gibson Les Paul Deluxe (1969)

    Gibson Les Paul Deluxe (1969) - "Mojo galore"

    11/20/11

    The old school Les Paul Deluxes tend to be a lot closer to the real old, early 50s guitars more than the current production ones, I've found. The downside is that a lot of them are really beat up, so you're going to have to be searching for awhile f…

  • Gibson Les Paul Deluxe - Modded w/ PAF

    Gibson Les Paul Deluxe - Modded w/ PAF - "P90 Equipped Deluxe"

    11/20/11

    The Les Paul Deluxe style guitars are those that are generally equipped with P90s, although a few of the owners out there have modified them with humbuckers. They're generally very solid players and can really deliver the P90 tone if you get the rig…

  • Gibson Les Paul DC Junior Faded

    Gibson Les Paul DC Junior Faded - "Decent guitar for the price"

    11/20/11

    If anybody wanted a decent double cut Junior, they'd probably start looking into the faded series. The faded series was a line that Gibson had to help cut down on costs but still deliver quality tone. The guitar features a mahogany body with a mapl…

  • Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom 2011

    Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom 2011 - "70s style Les Paul Custom"

    11/15/11

    I wonder how in the future we will look back of the Gibsons of 2011 and think about them. With their trouble in getting rosewood they have gone back to maple as a fretboard material on their non ebony models. They used a lot of maple in the 70s in th…

  • Gibson Les Paul Studio 2012

    Gibson Les Paul Studio 2012 - "Les Paul Studio with Gold hardware"

    11/10/11

    The Les Paul Studio is like a line of guitars of its own now. Before all the faded guitars and what not the Studio was the original budget model. It has all the features of a real Les Paul but isnt a JR model. There are many variants of the Studio no…
