The neck profile is going to ask me some adaptation (my other guitars have sleeves finer), but the playability is there. OK it's not a featherweight and access to the treble is a bit complicated, but not impossible. Those for whom happiness begins in the 17th box will find something that suits them (or sticks their hand I should say) in other models. I take a point because of varnish Gibson rubbish like this is not allowed (reaction with sweat) which removes a bit of fun Thurs The sound is full, well rounded, much like we imagine that an LP should sound, especially when the "lead" sound channel amp or overdrive / distortion is switched preferred.


I play rock and sturdy covers of 70's trend and it is doing more than well. The cleans are warm while remaining defined (the neck pickup is a true sound velvet). The overdrive sounds / high gain are rich, couillus and the definition of his remains. I play a Peavey 5150, Mesa Boogie 4x12 cabinet a Triple Rectifier ... to the delight of my drummer and bassist acolytes who do not really hold their blows;-)
A little bonus: the tone knobs are push-pull and allow to split the pickups, offering single coil sound very honorable. However small negative about the volume knobs item, not progressive at all (they are being replaced but an exceptional guitar you are entitled to expect better from Gibson ...)


A month of use (live and mini studio) and it's happiness! I tried many of Gibson (entry and midrange) store and all were improperly set (Nut blunt, bridge saddles that catch). At that price Gibson could make an effort on the price or strengthen his department "Quality Control". However, the look and the sound is at the rendezvous I still love this beast.

Gibson [Guitar of the Week #15] Les Paul GT
Gibson Les Paul GT Guitar Of The Week # 15
A model that has these USA made t the 15 weeks of 2007, limited series 400.
This is a Gibson Les Paul GT with a look DIFFERENT from that released in 2006.

The equipment remains the same except that the guitar is Entirely red and there are more flames on the body.

The fittings are chrome and the inlays on the fretboard are of the mirror.
Has a chrome pickguard addition over the original Gibson GT.

So in look, there's nothing to say, it keeps the look a little vintage (thanks to the pickguard) Gibson is going so well while gaining aggressiveness and modernity.

Personally I wanted a red guitar with chrome hardware so when I came across this model virtually unknown I'm not hesitating one second!

It has been almost a year since I played it and I do not regret at all wash purchased.

The neck is very pleasing to play, I got done right away. Before I played on a Fender Stratocaster very well play some rule, pleasant, but when I took the Gibson in hand I immediately found the positron more enjoyable. I immediately saw the difference and that is that I saw the handle of my Fender did not suit me as a.

The handle sits securely in the palm of your hand. It is very comfortable while maintaining a certain nervousness.

A little less polish cons for the rear of the handle that dirty very quickly, it looks like it keeps perspiration. This is the part that I cleaned the most. But he parat the varnish is "done" after a while and not doing it anymore.

CASC in acute is that of a Les Paul so it's not is strong point, but we made it. I have long fingers so okay. lol

The finishes are very well made in every corner.

I thought the pickguard was very fast scratch, but not because it resists very well shot mdiator.

In weight, it is heavy as a Les Paul sound full of wood! So it should not be hesitating to take a good leather strap very broad and very comfortable.

With regard to the sound, it's one of those strengths. Indeed, she team of microphones and split. So we get 8 DIFFERENT sound events. It therefore has a choice.
One can easily switch sound Plutt funky without imitating the sound of a Fender, a big fat well.

My Locations prefers: - bridge pickup position splitter for non-rhythmic aggressive solos and small rapids.
- Neck pickup Position Splitt not good for solo o one wants big business.
- Position intermediate-Splitt bridge pickup + neck pickup for clean split in its approach to prs sound of an acoustic!
- Bridge pickup Position splitter for beats funky, or rhythms of arpges the british overdrive with a good edge.

We quickly get the sound lon wants.

The position that I love the least is the position with intermediate-mics not split.


It very well suited to the style I play rock (Gunsn Roses, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd), but it should be much softer style or else harder.

I plug a Vox Tonelab SE amplifiers connected lamp Mesa Boogie DynaWatt 2 * 20w, all exits through a Marshall cabinet 1936 2 * 12.

It's crazy how parat BLEND cest but very effective! Jen have chills just thinking dy! A well hot and aggressive that shook the walls!

Jai Kent also a small amp that jai unknown Japanese brand is on a flea market lol. I put a Marshall Shred Master pedal between Gibson and the little 20W amp transistor and a very good sound jobtiens Rockn roll, very little amp prsdun lamp!

I once plugged a Marshall JCM2000 stack in a concert and adpots also javais great sound!

Jai by evil damplis DIFFERENT think about concerts and whatever spot will o jai I found myself always found my sound.

That is therefore a good guitar versatile adapts easily to the conditions.


Jaime this guitar lon not seen elsewhere, I dont think quelquun still having the same as me and Acesta well! It gives the impression davoir a single instrument, it quickly attaches sy.

I RPTES all the User and concerts, I carry 2 or 3 times a week and I havent ever had any problem! The flight case is very comfortable, nice and solid.

On stage its a true rgale! Thanks jai redcouverts rock this guitar is A limpression DTRE freer movement can be made that lon and wants to play in positions unthinkable with the Start.

It feels good thanks to its security equipment, and its weight and nervousness gives the impression davoir a true instrument in the hands.

Nine of the price this guitar I do not know, I bought 1000 euros lai doccasion by Ebay. Ive taken the risk, and I do not regret taking laundry!
When you see grown Gibson GT was more than 3000 with the same equipment and less beautiful to me, well I think its a good price for an instrument that can find no lon hand.
I would do it without hesitating choice!

Jaime instrument.
