UTILIZATION

The handle is typical of a gibson of 1958, it totally APRS Drout a stratocaster but the long we said it was a real guitar (without belittling other brands)

I kept the strings that are poses of origin. Have the Gibson Vintage Reissue 10-46.

This may be the heaviest guitar I've ever jou (mine is full-bodied version so much better than Gruyere, are now ...)

SOUNDS

I manage to play all styles of music with ... APRS Obviously the choice of amp is important ...

This guitar is naturally predestined for guitar lovers of blues, rock etc. I prfre Gary Moore signature because it possde all these qualities and much more (or body ^ ^)

I have several amps jou. I choose to test the entire range Gibson SG and a Marshall JCM 2000 and a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and then home on a Marshall JVM 410H
available)

My choice was made primarily on the clean t ... distortion APRS work ... I absolutely love the sound of this guitar clean and crunch ...
It is clear that it is the sound of this guitar poustouflant that made me crack (since I did not want to dpart ca ...)

The sound is much better than the standard, studios, etc. (in the sense of the term) means that you have a rather its own ... it can be a drawback for some ...

I used several pieces of rference to make my choice ... the selective silent song Stairway To Heaven Led Zeppelin. Well apart from the signature page, it's best to have this sound ... Marshall JVM 410H

It took me hours and hours of research to finally decide what MODEL (which n'tait not what I wanted initially, since at dpart I wanted an sg ...)

Basically I thought a SG (61 reissue) terrified by the weight of pauls but compare the sounds there was no photo (unfortunately also the price for my parents ...)

I mainly test version and the full body version "gruyere" of standard and custom ... it's the one I chose ... I would like to point out that on the other hand I test several pauls 58 and only one had this cot for me sduisait ...

This guitar seems to bring you something ... no one gives you the impression of being really good. It really helps to express your sound, develop your personality ...
So I test tens of brands before choosing Gibson ... Gibson and many since I started with the range and then make the SG Les Paul ...

I live in Rhone Alps, but I went up to Paris to buy it because it is the that there were as many choices and better prices (only 2900 euros for this wonder). I was also the acquisition of this guitar is a story and she was a rising since my Paname was an opportunity to meet many fellow musicians ... However, I regret not having bought my guitar because the store Annemasse Decibel is one of the best I know ... they pass time for me so that I buy at the competitor ... j ' to have a little ashamed ... I encourage you contact them if you search for materials, you will not regret it.

The conclusions that I have shot are:

- Never buy a guitar that you do not test.
- Never attach to a brand and have prjugs (Gibson and Fender are the only marks ... and the price is not better than gal ...)
- Your local store is good and it is preferable to request a price rather than buying on the internet ...
- Although the guitar is not the guitarist playing a type epi is as bad Whereas while another playing Whereas Gibson will be excellent ...
Describes the positive as several tens of lines. Here are the points that I ngatifs APRS Russia finds a lot of effort.

- For some weight. It may be better in the studio as on stage.

- On stage crashed necessarily a guitar so you see how you Whereas your guitar ...

- The absence of Straplock (as on any guitar) is particularly Agassant pnible and a Custom finishes since both are working to give effect to one of us ... ca straplocks brilliant flash and it's been losing mind that I wanted ... but hey I saw my guitar falling over 3000 euros a time ... I do not Straplock affects more ...
A yes ... as the original screws can be utiliss with straplocks, I want a solution because the other screws are larger and I am not damaging my guitar ...

- Gibson is a brand that takes advantage of his fame but it is nothing today ... That's why I chose a reissue also ...

- I find the flycase not terrible in the sense that all the gilding necessarily get damaged as they are in contact with the ground when you put your guitar ... I can not put my accessories in it (or strap tuner and polish)

A choice again o well I'll keep the tuit for the day I want o sell the guitar (something that never happen to me since I plan to keep this guitar as long as I live) or I sell the box + the + jack mdiators (which are highly sought)
The first day I wondered if the choice I had made the right t ... Then I thought that in any case there was nothing better than what I had ... and that for anything I sell my guitar is unique (each guitar is unique!)
