manufactured Nashville, orange candy with flames whose vision changes depending on the viewing angle. nitrocellulose varnish look great!
mahogany body, maple top
binding cream color for the body and neck (small drips on mine)
classic '50s mahogany neck, C
ebony fingerboard as the custom. this is a strong point in my opinion. touch is more enjoyable, less stringy than rosewood. the sound is more accurate and compressed.
24,75 "(thus taking up a large preference if you want to attack vigorously without it frisse severe)
Original nut Gaph Tech, replaced by a bone nut on mine (default a notch)
Trapezoid pearl pins
junction sleeve / reinforced head (to prevent breakage)
the frets are small as the custom, which is not displeasing.
Double tussroad for strengthening the stability of the handle. cool for the scene when not stir trouble! it never moves
Chrome Hardware: stop bar tailpiece and bridge tune-o-matic, 2 volume knobs and 2 tone (ie one for each pickup) system with push / pull, to Grover Locking (very practical and specific); holding perfect agreement!
in electronics, we have the right torque 490R and 498T pickups smoky coil, both splittable. they control with a conventional 3-position switch.
Note the presence of a high pass filter to keep the treble at low volume (this is important).
the wiring done on this guitar, completely independent with respect to said volume buttons, that even when the knobs are zero, a very light signal passes (we see in high gain mode, nothing to hear, must cut 2 volumes and 2 tones).
Dunlop straps locks (a significant safety) and Neutrik locking jack system (prevents unwanted débranchemnts live).
case with croco imitation coating, sturdy and functional.
short, this guitar has a very comprehensive and designed for the stage.
-1 For imperfections in finishes and the original nut problem
This is a guitar that takes time to tame and tame, especially to send furious solos at the top of the handle! she deserves.
The handle is awesome, yes, but once used, it is very comfortable, it fits nicely in the hand. The size of the handle part in full and ample instrument sound.
Ergonomics is not really optimized. These are the Gibson criteria. The heel of the neck joint / body is a little annoying, it hinders access to acute. but this is the price to pay for this huge sustain.
The weight is substantial. planning a good strap. after 2 or 3 hours of play, you can feel it. but it is also this characteristic that generates the grain typically Gibson.
I play essential ment of blues, rock and hard rock. this guitar is perfect.
there is a fairly wide range of sounds through all possible combinations of microphones and settings knobs.
on the other hand, for those who want the lens, this guitar is not for you. The sound is always a little dirty while being warm and musical.
In all configurations, the big and bold spirit is present and this is what I love. This Les Paul GT sends the wood. It is always ballsy! (Even split where the sound is dry and fine)
Very melodious guitar like that into him.
I am currently using with a Mashall ADF100 head and there is pure happiness. before, I was plugged into a Marshall JVM 410h head (it is also faisiat). Whatever the amp, this side a little filthy microphones are kept, it is enjoyable!
I use it for 5 years now and no other guitar has been able to divert me from it. The first time I got in my hands, I was captivated by the organic nature of the instrument. Vibration is felt intensely through the woods. It seemed as alive. And what a look! visually, with original flame (discrete) and class with chrome.
short, this is a rock guitar n 'roll by gasoline, sounds fabulous. Very often people are eyeing on.
Despite some small flaws finished, and the relatively high price, I do it again this choice without any hesitation!
In almost 20 years I have tested many guitars (entry, mid-range and high) of different brands and aunsune else has done me such an effect. This Gibson has a little something extra, that extra touch that makes the difference!
to listen to the grain of the Gibson Lespaul GT, here are the link to my group Six Feet Usual:
Les Paul GT Modl States, Mahogany body / table Maple, Mahogany Neck profile al 50 (24.75 Diapason ") touch BNE, alnico humbucking pickups Gibson 490R + 498T Smoky coil, 2 volume, 2 tone, slecteur a 3-position Push-Pull on Tone of potentiomtre (split pickups), Neutrik locking jack between, Bridge Tun-o-Matic Stop Bar tailpiece + lock, mechanical Grover blocking-lock Jim Dunlop Straps provided, Graph Tech nut ...
The handle is of type 50: This is not the end (60), but the one that best matches the spirit of Les Paul. Those who conneissent the Les Paul will not depayss. Key superb Ebne, magic touch.
Access in acute is that of a Les Paul: The hand must adapt.
The weight seems more lightweight than some Les Paul, but remains a Gibsonian weight (with the Reward nooooorme sustain the match.
The intrt of this model is that Gibson tried (and they got there) to propose a guitar prcustomise (all options). The list is well thought out:
. Graph Tech nut
. Features of Push-Pull Tone of potentiomtres (split mics)
. Neutrik locking jack between
. Bridge Tun-o-Matic Stop Bar tailpiece + block
. Mcaniques Grover locking
. Jim Dunlop Strap-lock provided
Your exact is the: The sound and sustain are the appointment. I should say the sounds. The split of Alnico (490R + 498T Smoky Coil) is used to broaden the range of Manir thunder for a Gibson. You have in your hands the equivalent of a ringtone maker (single coils), a les paul GEM (P90) and a Les Paul Standart (Humbucking).
3 guitars for the price of one!
You add a good amount of sustain with the nut GraphTech, an ounce of stability with the mca grover locking and all bridge / tailpiece block, a sense of security with the rel-lock straps between blocking and jack, you connect (if possible in an amp lamps), you close your eyes, and you let go ... Jazz, blues, funky (especially with the split), Rock, Nu, ....
Want Gibson not having thought more tt.
The sound is l. To navigate the jungle of microphones on offer by Gibson, say that the 490R is a 57 with a bit more high mdium, and 498T (Hot Alnico) dmnage demand in mdiums and treble. All makes forays into every style.
The GT is perfect my (my) style (s) of music, and allows me to broaden the field. I play mainly on the amp lights, and I tried on a small H & Keltner transistors. In any case, it sounds!
Trs prt approach, the sounds and the twang of a Start, playing on a Les Paul is thundering. especially important with the sustain of the guitar.
S'opre split push-pull knobs on the Tone.
I use it for 6 months. No regret, on the contrary. The sound possibilities are endless. The only thing that Gibson would have thought, is the establishment of a greater range of colors. Besides The series limit (guitar of the week), exit a few weeks ago, offers the same quality and impressive look DIFFERENT! A GT GT against another? Yeah! when there is taste ...

ethereal's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Channel strange at first, may be it's just on my MODEL - not so much by the thickness, but by the contact / touch!
Access in acute bah is a les paul, the handle is pais in the body ...
Ergonomics of a Les Paul, it's heavy, it's not comfortable standing shoulder support for play ...
Sound: a sound when the line. And a variety of sacred sounds, even with the mic splits with parl Desax adj.
Ideally suited my style of music, pop, rock or rock mtallisant xD
Any type of sound (almost) can be obtained by playing with the tone and push pull.
I played on a Marshall hybrid AVT150. It sounds dj trs well, I dare not even imginer a Mesa, or any other lamp.
We will tell me that I was wrong guitar purchase, but honntement, I crack the clear split of the two microphones. Phnomnal. The sound we know gnralement Gibson, but what's the the Gibson in the galaxy is an uncommon phnomne (well my opinion, and considering my knowledge of these guitars lol )
I use it for almost two weeks, quite extensively. It is a pleasure to play it. It spends much time exploring the sonic possibilities of the instrument.
Excellent price-quality ratio for me, since I bought it in the United States. In France, I would not have bought.
If we had the choice again ... hum .... I do not know too much, I repeat to you in a 6 months: p
Not srieusement I do not regret, but I also have a lot hsit ... Fender!
The only CRITERIA in order not to repeat what choice would essentially financial, actually.
Trs good instrument, all fawn, to look impeccable.
