    Very good price for a Gibson Epiphone

    Gibson Les Paul Special FadedPublished on 02/17/13 at 02:42
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Made in America
    Classic features of a Les Paul unlike the table not convex and rough finish.

    UTILIZATION

    I find the handle comfortable, quick access to treble for classic Les Paul. It is heavy, it is normal it is a LP but it is reasonable, I can play 2h standing with back strap and still have its place in the end.
    10-52 climb for me, you can send good rock, bends are easy and accurate, it is really enjoyable to play.
    Level changes, the rough finish makes it "ages" faster, but it takes a side relic that does not displease me at all. Mine is 2005, and the yellow race begins to whiten the back and on the slice level frets most played, Also on the edge of the table at the frict…

Mine is 2005, and the yellow race begins to whiten the back and on the slice level frets most played, Also on the edge of the table at the friction of the right arm. I think she takes the time stamp.

    SOUNDS

    So! I found the original sound great but I still decided to upgrade and I went to Seymour Duncan Slash Signature APH2 quite expensive (200 €) but what a joy!! Wow, transforming the guitar, I like playing on a guitar at 2000 €, what sound!
    The sustain is endless, the sound is fat hope, even with a large saturation, the notes are parts in clean is more than good, brief no complaints about the sound.
    I repeat, the sound was already very good in the original configuration but with microphones Slash, it's very heavy!
    I would put the original 8 and 10 + with these microphones.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I for 8 months and I think I do not divide them: I do sort of in my guitars, for example, I sold a american deluxe strat but can not let go of this one even if the Basically, it's the least expensive of my guitars.
    After changing pickups, it has nothing to envy to me a standard, then of course, you must love without varnish finish that is much more fragile and flat table but for the price secondhand, it's really all good.

    Gibson Les Paul Special FadedPublished on 01/05/04 at 15:00
    I purchased it in one of the better guitar stores in my city. The price was about $500.

    I like everything, the sound, the looks and the simplicity of the design. The reason I bought this instrument was the extremely good pickups the guitar is equipt with. The playability is very good, what would you expekt from a gibson... Feels good in yous hands solid mahogany.

    The only thing that makes a expensive impression is the pickups. but I kind of like the simplicity. Knobs could be better placed.

    Very good. Solid as a brick. No complains. If someone doesn't like this guitar, it's not because of the quality.

    It's made of solid mahogany with a rosewood fretboard, with "pearloid-frets".

    Instead of shiny laqeur the guitar has a "worn" look.

    Buy this guitar if you want a Les Paul and can't afford some custom model with flametop and Trapezoid fretboard. This one sounds as good as a $2000 guitar. Buy it!

    SOUNDS

    Sounds less fat than a Les Paul Standard, but more than SG, midway between the two again. This is quite to my taste. So in my opinion she is doing really well in rhythm, especially with power chords on his crunch / saturation light with the key so that the saw-SG, you know what I mean? Lead is approached by the sound of a standard LP and its accents in the treble violin, but not really succeeding completely, but it's still very nice and high.
    I do use studio exclusively (on stage I usually bassist!) In various amps I'm not going to list, but be warned it is rather that Marshall Vox, even if it adapts easily all kinds of amps.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Handle of a dream, a rather curious look (for LP), but endearing, but also a pure sound ... Les Paul SG morning! It is a genuine Gibson. What else?
    An excellent deal that gets better with age, mine is on its nine years, which she turns 10 this year after its serial number.
    Series economic forces, she was delivered in soft cover and no pickguard Gibson, I added one and I think she is prettier with! (After it is a matter of taste).
    Excellent quality / price ratio and the choice I would do without hesitation!

    Rosewood 22-fret fingerboard
    Chrome hardware

    SOUNDS


    The tone of a Gibson Les Paul is a nice thick meaty tone primarily because of the mahogany body wood as well as in the neck. You get a nice rich deep tone that really accepts a load of distortions quite well. Even if you're playing a clean setting it does pretty good but not compared to a thinner woodbased body such as a Fender Telecaster or a Fender Stratocaster with ash wood or an alder wood base. Overall this is a nice rich tone guitar that sounds extremely well because it doesn't have a load of lacquer or paint on it. So it resonates quite well.

    OVERALL OPINION


    These guitars of been discontinued for a while now so the only way to get one is on a used or classified sections of forums or online classifieds. It's a cool guitar and you could probably find it pretty inexpensively if you look . I would recommend this guitar to someone who is looking for a nice introduction into the Gibson Les Paul world. This is a fairly inexpensive Les Paul model and so you can get it for under $1000 or so. So if you want that nice thick meaty Gibson Les Paul tone and don't want to spend a whole lot of money then this is a great first step for those guitarist who are on a budget but want this particular sound.

    The grattoune was manufactured in the United States.
    22 frets, 2 humbuckers (the same as on the studio LP). Easel typical of LP.
    2 volumes and 2 tones.
    A sturdy handle, which can give hard time to soloists followers over the past 5 boxes.

    UTILIZATION

    I like the handle bcp but on the side of the palm of a material a little strange because it is the same color as the table.Cependant I find it very comfortable and not "too" good for fin.Tres rhythmic. Access to treble is fairly complex from the 16th box but it's like for Les Paul!

    SOUNDS

    I mainly play group metal (metallica, manson), rock (Deep Purple, Led Zep) and quieter stuff (M, Tete etc ...) This scraper is perfect for me.
    I play for now only void with my Fender Princeton 65 Watts.
    This gives a warm-air even if n is not a punch fort.En saturated sound the microphone is perfect for serious rhythm and a sharp microwave a potato c d hell bleeding and fat!
    I really like the scratches, the only downside: the clean sound, it s comes out well with his personality etc ... But not worth the simple ;-)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I got it 3 weeks ago.
    I love his look, his sound, EVERYTHING! Maybe the finish can be a little "cheap".
    Aquérir before I tried a 83 Start, a Schecter C1, an SG faded is well below a Lag Roxanne classic.
    I bought 800 euros fdp in new and I do not regret it! Very good value for money, after a 1200 euros I do not know, it is better than the comparer.Cependant lag.
    Yes I reffer this choice today!

    I have not bought yet, but I admit that I hesitate!
    The lack of polish that the guitar will soon be skating and having a side roots!
    On the other hand, the finisher and pretty tables more expensive gibson also make me feel like it.

    In terms of weight, due to the lack of table stocky, the guitar over it again and it's not lgre dplaire me, given that after three hours of r pt ', in gnral we feel the weight of his guitar ... But be careful, even when one is a Gibson US with mahogany body, so beautiful is doing well ...

    I would also prciser and in terms of hardware, there is no doubt that we are directly in front of the quality and know-how Gibson. This is aa beautiful and looks really tough ...

    THE SOUND OF THIS GUITAR IS A REAL KILL!
    It is the strong point ... Typical Les Paul, fat, hot ...
    For the price, I'm really not!
    I was hesitant in purchasing this guitar, it must be confessed, is an entry in the catalog Gibson, but not ... the sound is to go!

    So, in addition to its ... love it, for some, gross appearance of this guitar (no table bomb, no varnish, paint apparent default ...), me ... I love!

    Above all, love is an excellent report quality / price (buy 878 new, in my case ...)

    As t adj is, if you fancy a US vritable Gibson and you do not have the means forcment this Special Faded worth dtour ...

    I want to make a precision that seems important enough APRS one month of use:
    the sound of this guitar, if s'avre really excellent, however, is dmarque lgrement typical Gibson sound, unlike what I write above ...
    Indeed, if the sound fat and warm is well and truly the it is still a little sharp and prcis than other Les Paul I know (Standard, Studio ...)

    T say everything on the subject. Made in America
    It is clear that this is not the finish of a Les Paul Standard or Studio. And it's not the same price range either. But when plugged into the amp what happiness. It sounds like its big sisters.
    The only difference is the drain on the bank account which is much less painful.
    With the euro / dollar is now a good deal.

    UTILIZATION

    After an interruption of more than 10 years in practice the guitar, I immerse myself in DCID. I play guitar in leisure and to please me APRS a long break, I DCID to do on the guitar of my dreams of teens on a Gibson rather than a pale copy. I dj given in the past.
    Frankly not having done so.

    SOUNDS

    What sustain my children, Plutt East Rock / blue is a rgal. For more Jazz dlicat but it is doing not too bad when even.
    The ranges of blue (and yes must take all its bases APRS so many years) ring of hell.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Frankly if a c'tait again I will make the same choice without hsiter. The ratio quality price is excellent. For the price of a lot of ephiphone you have a real gibson made in United States in his hands.
    Do not expect the level of finish other les paul range but it's even globally blameless individuals. Moreover, its look is nice trs pluttdpouill raw casting, but I love craps craps.
    A little less heavy than a LP Studio Standard or for those who play in groups during long RPTES is a little more.
    After a few days of use, trs Premire sensations are good, an enjoyable round. The recovery of the guitar on this instrument real pleasure.

    Not bad for the price

    Gibson Les Paul Special FadedPublished on 08/09/11 at 18:53
    The Faded series sometimes gets looked down upon because of their cheaper price, but I find them to be some really great playing guitars, especially considering that you don't need to pay full price to get that Les Paul tone. The guitar features a mahogany body, mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, trapezoid inlays, no pickguard, no binding, hard tail bridge, two humbuckers, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.

    UTILIZATION

    This is a stripped down Les Paul, and you could kinda tell. The frets themselves weren't too bad in terms of height. I didn't have any issues with low frets causing the guitar to fret out with some decent action. However, the ends were…

    UTILIZATION

    This is a stripped down Les Paul, and you could kinda tell. The frets themselves weren't too bad in terms of height. I didn't have any issues with low frets causing the guitar to fret out with some decent action. However, the ends were a bit sharp in some parts. Be sure to pay attention to that if you decide to buy one. The nut was cut fine, but there are quite a few out there that have issues with the nuts being cut improperly causing some tuning stability issues. This is pretty apparent once you start bending and notice the guitar going out of tune all of the time. Aside from that, the guitar is put together nicely. The weight wasn't bad, and that was pretty nice as some of these can get heavy.

    SOUNDS

    The guitar sounds a bit meatier than the normal Les Paul. The biggest tonal difference you'll experience is that this is a bit darker sounding than a normal Les Paul. The reason is due to the lack of the maple top. The maple adds some extra bite to the overall sound, and it can be a good or bad thing depending on what your'e going for. Tonally, these are a bit closer to the Explorers, SGs and Vs than the Les Pauls. The pickups in this are average, but I'm not a huge fan of them. I usually replace them with something like the Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and 59 in the neck.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Normally, I'd recommend buying stuff used on eBay. However, there are some issues with these regarding fretwork and improperly cut nuts, so you're better off buying one in the store that you can physically inspect. The guitars aren't 100% in terms of that Les Paul tone, but they sound great, and for the price they go for, they're definitely worth it.

    UTILIZATION

    blues, rock, heavy.

    SOUNDS

    Very very good!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Lighter than a standard, its beautiful, comfortable handle (I tried a few faded, no bending and hung frets, neck unpleasant), not from bending, but the frets are well polished. Very affordable price, sound and comfort. When purchasing, I went on a Gibson, I tried models to 2500 euros, and not looking at the price, I chose this model sounded much better than others for my taste. A look to fall.

    Case in tissues, hard cases would have been nice, but hey .... No shield, I uploaded a.
    it's been 4 years that I have, I do it again this choice without thinking.
