MGR/Derek Mok's review"Gibson Les Paul Standard Double Cut Plus"

Gibson Les Paul Standard Double Cut Plus
I played this guitar for about 20 minutes at Sam Ash on Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles. It was selling for $1549.

The transparent amber finish on this guitar may be the most gorgeous finish I've seen yet on an electric. Visually, everything about this guitar radiates class -- arched top, the flame top, the
pickups. And typical of a Les Paul, the sustain is terrific and the sound ferocious yet complex, suitable for a diverse array of styles -- trebly chimes, wailing blues, fierce rock rhythm.

The addition of the top cutaway does not add any upper-fret access at all. I had been eyeing the Les Paul DC design for a while, thinking it might be the perfect union between the Les Paul sound and double-cutaway upper access. But not only did the Les Paul DC not even come close to the upper-fret access of my SG and Flying V guitars (admittedly a lot to ask), it feels exactly the same as an ordinary Les Paul when going into the highest parts of the neck. And with this guitar's master tone and volume controls, two knobs vs. the four on a regular Les Paul or SG, you get a little less control over your sound.

Excellent. This guitar looks and feels as classy as Paul Reed Smiths costing double the amount.

My issue with this guitar is that it just doesn't feel any different from a regular Les why buy it, considering Les Paul DCs will go up much less in value than a regular Les Paul over time? If you're strictly looking for a player's guitar, it's a viable option, because it's $400 less than the Les Paul Classic and $600 less than the Les Paul Standard. Still, even then I might think a Les Paul Studio might be a better investment. The Les Paul DC is a good instrument; I just don't really see what would make me pick it over a regular Les Paul. If you do want comfortable upper-fret access, go for an SG or Flying V -- the Les Paul DC won't meet that requirement.

Gibson Les Paul Standard Double Cut Plus
Voi few information about this wonderful and unique that is the Gibson Double Cut +
MODEL manufactured in the United States, Premire release in 1998. The MODEL I t has direct import of the United States and manufactures t this year.

Transblack color (that of the photo) is available only to United States

Everything's in a standard Gibson is in the l. Just for those who do not know gibson consulting advice on Gibson Lespaul Standard. Few changes technically (if not two knob less for volume and tone, which is personally suits me), except in the choice of matrial, cutting and of acastillages.

For more technical dtails:


I also Lespaul a Gibson Studio (1996)

The handle is longer 24 frets easily accessible, more lgre (less thick than other gibson) and conformatble sitting (all our ratings remain their place for once).
The highs are super accessible can make us cry without even crying! It's cool to have a gibson without that twisting the wrist and destroy the back, it's a first!

At the touch, I just try again, but I must say that it responds great, the handle is somewhat aggressive under the fingers (can be brand new) that's the impression I had also qd I had my new studio. In any case if you just go to the Fender and Gibson neck, you will shock it sr.
The neck is typical Gibson, thick and large, it is AIM but I must say that it is not comfortable in this premium ki config.

Finishing and acastillages are fairly treated (even happy for a guitar this price, is to see over time if it will hold better than my studio).

Bcp visibly working on ergonomics from gibson MODEL manufactured for the first time in 1998. They corrected their mistakes qq hsit erased to lose none of their style. I must say that it Russi.


Strangely the sound has nothing to do with my studio, here are more Submitted medium, ca Confre him a strong style blues or jazz.
It would great note, the sound is clear and clean.
It keeps all of the same sound as heavy and edged distortion, but the sound is beautiful Kler despite my old marshall valvestate8080! The sound is typical Gibson prserv in saturation with a trs treated in the clean channel.

As everyone says, there's no one that sounds like gibson. ;) It's true!

I did that and the Les Paul Studio, so over a standard I would not be too similar. But I think the Gibson Standard has more pronounced than acute l. My studio was already much in acute (less than a std LP) but the Les Paul Standard DC + the plays in your medium. It can dplaire as some may delight others.


I have since qq days now, I do not let go!
Is that I liked the most before buying c'tait his cot "original", it cuts too. Sound when he ca me print clarity and punch in saturation. I Needed printing all this mix of sounds for a Gibson LP, however, instead of the typical prdilection a rock, or hard metal.

I am more than surprised about this wonderful guitar. The beauty and quality of Gibson surprised me at first, but once more enchant j'tais branch. Really no regrets!

New it costs around 2400 Euros, which is today the average price of a Gibson Standard. If you want all the advantages of Gibson, without inconvnients is this one that must be taken, even if it is a little less "mythical" as Lespaul Standard classics.

Some pictures of my new gem to put you in the mouth

Music @ parliaments,

Gibson Les Paul Standard Double Cut Plus
-> Finish beautiful. I cross the red version. The table is a flamed up!
-> The handle is comfortable, it's a profile 60 '. Very good access to acute, unlike the LP Std.
-> The tuning does not great, but hey, it is recurrent in gibs.
-> A volume / tone and use c (pourkoi bother with +?)


The guitar is light! Much thinner than a LP Std, and hollow cavities are present in the guitar, which helps sustain.

Cutting stomach is welcome. It is a marvel to play!

I play standing up all the time, and it is a treat, no back pain has deplored, even after 5 hours of repeat ...


Raaaaaaaa, the sound! It's simple: if you hesitate between the LP and SG std's level is the dc LP for you! An excellent compromise between the two. The sound is typical gibson, fat and punchy a wish.

The recipe is simple: a 10 knobs, pickups selector on treble, is given, one branch, and it's ready!


I've had three months. Bought second hand on ebay United States, she came back a € 1,050 all inclusive.

I do not regret my choice, of course, is the guitar of my dreams ...
