Gibson Les Paul Faded DC
Gibson factory in USA
22 frets, two humbucker cut
Slecteur 3 positions (round, intermediary, bridge)
1 rglage volume and tone for each microphone
Channel collbr /> Faded no varnished finish !!!


The handle is rather pleasant
The access to acute rather difficult, more freights are fairly Paisses rapprochs and what is not easy but with practice it fits.
The handle weight is consquent is a Gibson ... But he does not pose a problem.
Ct interressant is the weight of trslger body for guibson is a veritable asset mahogany used is not dense o reduces its weight.
The sound is easy to modulate, do not look for hours.The her neck pickup is very typ blues, bridge pickup it is typ rock and intermediary position obtained by its clear sound Brilant very apprciable.


It suits very well to my style of music from rock and blues, but do not put big esprez saturation is not his thing.
I use an amp and Hughes Kettner Vortex but it is not suitable, but the sound is correct, the better I pence is to use it with a Fender or Vox amp all-tube that I have been apprci during my visits DIFFERENT music store.
I mainly use a Boss DS 1 Distortion that suits him perfectly and the clear sound of the amp is a guitar that not too appreciates the effects but that said it's not the worse for that like me appreciates a pure ...


I have since December 2005, the ct's more sound, shape and vintage spirit
The least its the Faded finish with paint that wears quickly and gives a shiny effect but is not uniform !!!! and also pulling the strings of excessive I reduce council to facilitate play in the treble.
I tried before acqurir Epiphone Les Paul Goldtop one but it's not such a guibson remains a Gibson, I tried the SG Faded remains classic at the sonorits.
Qualitprix the report would be reviewed to finish even if it's a Gibson price should be revised downward in the 900 euros it would be more affordable.
If I were to do it again I would go Fender but I do not find a pence guitar with a personality like this Les Paul DC that is truly unique ...

Meur'saw's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Early favorite!"

see other opinions ...

in fact I know I'm not sure why this view because the article published here on AF makes pretty good justice to this little scratch ...


then before that I played only on tv with handle lumberjack and heavy as it is not possible, I must say that the transition to the LP DC was a shock ... I went from one side of the spectrum of guitars to go to another round super nice, super light ...

you plug and go!


it suits my style (rock, noise, indie ...)

in bridge, the tone knob a little behind on 7-8, with a nice drive and I do not know why, it is projected directly at CBGB in the mid-'70s, they bite, it is surly, it Punke, hello johnny ramone (yes he played on Mosrite but that's how) and thunder!

to handle, it passes easily from blues to rock ...

Punch it a lot, very good dynamics, very straight, very clear, a small bump in the attack that would almost suggest a twang ...

she has a little less "body", unless that side "acoustic" or "wood" in the 50's tribute, which also turns the P-90 ...


I've had four years and as I said this is my little pampering ... its simplicity, its ergonomics, its side rock'n'roll machine ... everything I like ...

the price of second hand right now it is sincerely one of the best deals on the market!

Gibson Les Paul Faded DC
Then all dabort is a Gibson made in United States. It has 22 frets, 2 P90 true (hihihi ^ ^).
Level bridge, fixed bridge is, as one of calitemdiocre Gibson knows how to do ...
She 2boutons volume and 2 tone (1 for each pickup) and a selector 3positions.
The handle is the real les paul, good solid handle well (like me before if you had a ibanez SA, you will be surprised, my first 2 hours of games silent hours followed by bulb inches! C ' is the 'tit round)

I put 8, because of the bridge, otherwise the rest is gibson is AIM (which I love, the P90 and the shape of the guitar!)


All dabort, the handle is stiff, not for the solo steve Vabien made in the ACCS is fairly easy to acute (double cut forces ... ^ ^), the guitar is more to the ACCS blues (it sounds good enough for a tit-fusion funky blues) and rock (all types of rock ann 60 ', and pushing it a bit, it perceives that one has to make a show of punk and see the same grunge!) but beware, amateur mtal s'apstenir!. The weight of the guitar is much lighter than a les paul standard or even a Start '.
Sound, bah is very simple, you plug it and play! the rglages? rglages what? dja not need it sounds so good ...
I put 9 because the handle can be a po everybody must love.


I play a little blues and a lot of punk m'clater in his style is truly one of the best model I could hear. It sounds good in what nimporte amps! (Yes even in the marshall MG!). Question her, the level CRUCH c Bonnheure, but then saturated! is the P90, must be a fan, and I CONAI not many who do not like the sound of the P90 for me were the best microphone for rock and roll, punk, and blues! !

I put 10 because really, the sound of Gibson irrprochable


I use it for 1 week, and may be that my avi is subjective or very, because I really fell in love with this guitar. I was found OCCAZ has 830, casi new. I compared the guitar with a jaguar, a mustang and a les paul special strat'etla TV (the big sister of the Les Paul Faded DC) which to me sounds bcp mieu his older sister (I repeated, j ' Dessuti have flash so my decision is very surment subjectifsur certain point, or I came across the model gnial ^ ^) and only inconvnient over fender, its handle is really raid, but if abitue in 1 / 4 of an hour (yes I am slow to dtetente so what?) forget about it until ...

I definitely will remake choice, simply for the sound of P90, shape (!) And its relation Calita unbeatable price! (For 1025, a true Les Paul made in United States!)
was not just that I sub, I VAIT bought me a couple of vox AC30 with this amp, you sound wild!

With that, I go back!
dizol and for the many spelling mistakes ...
