Hatsubai's review"A bit funky but still cool"

Gibson Les Paul Standard DC
The Double Cut Les Pauls were never too popular, and I believe it was because of their more radical design. They're not bad guitars at all, but you have to really dig the way they look. The guitar features a mahogany body with a maple top, a mahogany set neck with a rosewood fretboard, standard trapezoid inlays, 22 frets, a tune-o-matic bridge, two humbuckers, one volume, one tone and a three way switch.

UTILIZATION

This guitar was a bit used, so there was some fret wear going on. You could see the grooves in the frets, and for the guitar to play nicely, they should be leveled and recrowned. The ends were still nice, however. The nut itself was a bit too deep after all the years of the strings running through them, so it needed a new nut. Keep in mind that not all guitars will have these issues, but it's something to keep in the back of your mind in case you ever decide to buy one of these used.

SOUNDS

I wasn't a huge fan of the stock pickups in this thing. Then again, I'm not the biggest fan of Gibson pickups to begin with. The bridge was powerful, but it lacked what I usually look for in a bridge pickup. I like the pickup to be clear and tight, but it seemed to be voiced more towards the vintage side of things. The neck sounded decent, but I'd like it to be more powerful and smoother sounding. I'm a sucker for those ultra smooth guitar tones for leads, but that's probably because I use them as a bit of a crutch for lead playing.

OVERALL OPINION

They're a bit ugly, but they still deliver in terms of tone. They sound fat and play the part. Try to see if you can score a cheaper used one on eBay rather than buying in the store. You should get a much better deal that way. Or you could even search Craigslist and try to get it cheaper that way. Be sure to watch out for fretwork issues.

Gibson Les Paul Standard DC
everyone knows the features of this guitar.

UTILIZATION

The handle is nice. It is true that access to acute is less obvious than on a sg, has both a classic lp too. Better than a sg in access to acute? what else

SOUNDS

Sounds: when you are not Mancho have nothing to say it makes all that he gives. bcp bass and midrange. Persian it very well in a mix, do not twist the treble eardrums.
She can play anything.
It is extremely well if the agreement is capable of climbing ropes. She did not move.
To play a guitar amp directly lampe.Une whawha suits him well because the highs are sweet. for bills purchased a Start ...

OVERALL OPINION

I been using it for 3 years. I have a Washburn, a roxane std France, sg, and this one. I never would sell it and c is the last guitar that I bought second hand. it dates from 98.

Gibson Les Paul Standard DC
I am the happy owner of this guitar for 3 years
Made in the US 98
So we find:
A handle 24 cases late 60's Profile
a Tune O Matic
2 double pickups 490 & 498
1 knob volume 1 tone knob
+ Stopbar chrome easel
Color LemonBurst

UTILIZATION

Access in the treble is no problem, he just had time to adapt because of the smaller spacing between the frets sensitive from the 14th box.
The handle is fine and pleasant, with a more rounded back on Start.
Lightweight compared to the Les Paul Standard and my other guitars (due to room tone in the body).
The stomach is cut and the more double cutting.

SOUNDS

Blues Rock in the style it suits me perfectly.
I branch or in a BOSS GX700 + Fender Champ 12 amp or directly into a Tech 21
Neck pickup sounds OK for blues / jazz
Ideal pickup for his bluesy / Rock / Hard
The sustain is OK in all cases
We obtain the classic Gibson sound, with more rounded than the LP Standard

OVERALL OPINION

That's 3 years that I use with the beast still enjoy.
It took me a few weeks before finding my bearings and paufiner the adjustment at the bridge / stopbar.
Nothing to say about the finish or electronics after 3 years.
The value for money is okay, it still is close to 2000 euros ...
No regrets to date, a Les Paul without incobnvénients of this one
