Hatsubai's review"Fairly standard Gibson"

Gibson Les Paul Classic Antique
The Classic Antique is really not that much different from a Standard or any other regular production model Gibson. The top is slightly figured, and it has uncovered 57 Classics. Aside from that, it's pretty much your standard Gibson. The guitar features a mahogany body with a maple top, mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, trapezoid inlays, pickguard, binding, hard tail bridge, two humbuckers, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.


They're generally solid flames, but I've seen PRS and other guitars with better ones. Even Jackson can have more intricate flames. Then again, it all depends on what you're going for. The nut on this was cut properly, and I had no issues with tuning. The frets were dead on, and the edges felt great. I really dug how this guitar played, and it had a nearly perfect weight, weighing somewhere around 8 to 9 lbs.


The guitar sounds pretty good, but they're stock Gibson pickups. I'm not totally crazy about these. The sound average, in my opinion. The bridge is medium output, and it sounds fat. However, it doesn't overdrive the amp like I like my pickups to. The neck is a bit too bright for my tastes, but you can calm it down with the tone pot. The coolest thing is the coil split feature. This allows you to split the pickups to get that almost single coil sound. It makes this guitar crazy versatile.


These are good guitars if you're looking for something that's high quality and affordable. I tend to really like the Classic series in terms of value per dollar, but they can be a bit iffy. I recommend you play a few and see how you like them as not everybody enjoys these for whatever reason. I never understood why, but some are super picky about real small things.

Gibson Les Paul Classic Antique
Manufacture USA.
Channel stuck rosewood.
-22 Frets.
-2 Humbucker-coil (humbucker)
3-way selector -1.


-The handle is nice but nothing to do with my Charvel.
-Ergonomics is poor, you can quickly have a sore chest or abdomen because of body shape if you play for long.
-Access is drenier freight is quite good.
Yes, the big sound that Les Paul that you can have a Les Paul.


I-cheek funk, so it should not really do like that style of music, I bought parcque I am a collector and she was very beautiful.
-The sound is fat, too fat to play like that style. It is a hard-rock guitar. A top for his solos with saturation but not for rhythmic funk.


"I've had it 5 years.
Oh yes I have tried guitars, I am a collector.
"She is very beautiful as a guitar, top finish. It costs a bit more expensive than other antique I had seen. It is not meant to play any style.
Oh hey guys at Gibson, anyway you should know that Les Paul did not hold if there is not a "strap-lock" for the belt, especially near the attachment of the handle, for the price Vouzas sell your guitar, it would at least ask?!
-As I said, yes I probably still would buy Les Paul for my collection, but not necessarily to play live, not really for my style of music.

Gibson Les Paul Classic Antique
Les Paul Made In United States ...

In the tradition GIBSON with some innovations of size (weight should I say!)

Table in Saddle flame ... Honey Burst, my favorite color ...

All that is important:

- The pickups, the '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus for Antique instead of the couple 496R 500T for the classic simple. Ancient offers the true sound of PAF SERIES!

- The table Saddle flame AA sculpts beautiful!

- Small dtails that kill: the inlays are white instead of being yellow as the classic single (the ugly yellow parat lot (including me) but you get used when playing any ), binding the head with his white Gibson and registration of all beauty ... And TOC historic holly leaf;)

The Classic Antique is a little vintage new line without going to the custom shop price (well. ..). The sound is much more vintage than the classic single, 496R and 500T o make a work of thunder to give you the power and sounds actually quite modern, while the old, equally excellent, Vintage is more type.

With the Antique, we are in the legends.

It has no cover PAF and luxury small dtails mentioned earlier (holly leaf aaaah ...).

In a word: BEAUTIFUL!


The handle is great comfort when ds was ended stick (the homeowners of a new Gibson will understand me)

Everything happening on the handle with the traditional position or push over ...

CHAC is correct in acute ...

But talking about something important: comfort!

This guitar is a hollowbody Ralite "farm"!

Its weight is equivalent to that of my stratocaster silent until the acquisition of my Gibson guitar my main ...


The Gibson Les Paul in all its spleudeur ... Clapton, Knopfler via MOORE, PERRY PAGE and ... I can have it all!

EC ITS Vintage warm, open and filled with the indescribable ... magic!

A guitar must try one condition: Having the money to buy it or you go out frustrating!

Myths About the Gibsons I have vrifier ...
The mcaniques tulips do not take the agreement:

In fact, on my MODEL, beginners the ropes in half, and if soil dsaccordaient systmatiquement .... I have a game down on bends and surcrot, strings taient new ... Now they are made: a perfect agreement is ... All 10 tracks, verifies and I is impeccable, was not moving!

The varnish glue the hand: a I confirm: After a few hours of play was a sensation drle ever seen other models with a guitar: The neck seems to sweat ...

But more and more I play this raction fades!


The guitars of all brands, I had (Fender - stratssss, tlsss, Gretsh, Godin artisan and even the Ibanez in my PERIOD shreed there ten years. ..)

But with this Gibson, I reached the top in every respect!

Yet for years, I did approach the standards, not those old tables with fire ... I find them heavy and uncomfortable ...

However, I tried a bunch!

I do not understand what phnomne Gibson and I thought it was a reputable, a myth (I have too much bleeding on Gibsons!)

Then one day I tried an SG Junior and my blood has a beat, I became stiff to the point that I would order it in Canada and bring it to me by a friend ...

But, I'm all in a mag prs from home and I saw the Classic Antique Honey Burst (this is my favorite color as the wicker covers and the back of my Taylor 612C)

She silent beautiful and what was my surprise when I grip: no heavier than my strat favorite!

Deuxime surprise: The reason for the instrument: It's magic, really, to vibrate in the thigh, glove!


Once plugged into my Tech21 Trademark 60, I can spend much of Gary Moore's full and rich in harmonics ("Still Got The Blues", "Parisienne Walkways" than clapton (Cream! !!!!), Knopfler on "Brothers In Arms" With the Crunch mini, I have the sound of the solo The Wall ...

The clean sounds are rich and prcis and when I play the intro to Knocking on Heavens Doors Live version G'N R, one would think ...

I do not even talk about "Stairway To Heaven" or "Since I've Been Loving You" ... a real rgal!

Ms. Little Wing sounds better than my strats fuller, richer!

In short, I who in silent electric infidle (since my Taylor, I do not touch no other sound except for the live o I play my Ovation double neck!) I am discovering a Fidler flawless for my Gibson ...

And I understand better their pub "to hear sound is not like the feel vibrating in your body"!

This guitar is the most versatile I possde, really!

The best electric guitar in my life, my dernire probably ... My first crdit for a guitar but it was worth it to do ...

Run a try!

But trve chat: Place the photos!

Here diffrent shots of my beautiful Gibson Les Paul Classic Antique:

I found my sound, my guitar, electric ... Finally!
