These guitars are great into into the Gibson Les Paul world. They are relativity cheaper than the other models and play just as well in my opinion. Some Gibson Les Pauls can be hit or miss from guitar to guitar so take this with a grain of salt. You can find a terrible playing and sounding Gibson Les PAul Classic and you can find a terrible sounding R9 Les Paul. They can good found with the a standard top or like the plus with the maple top. This is drive the price higher with the nice top.

I have always like the way the classics played. Some were just terrible and others not so much. It really depends on which one you have in your hand. I have played countless Gibson Les Pauls and many were good and many were not so great and they had priced tags of $4000 and more.

This guitar can be rocked out with a MArshall half stack or a quality tube driven Fender amp. You can get a good classic rock tone from a Marshall plexi reissue or even a fender Twin Reverb with an Ibanez tube screamer out in front. These guitar just play what is given them and with be great accompaniments on the stage.


these guitars can be found on ebay all day long. Most of the ones with nice tops in have been going for right around $2200 give or take a few hundred bucks. The standard body ones have been around $1500 or so. so they can be owned easily and with a good credit card can be yours today. I would recommend playing one used if you can find it to see if it fits your hands nicely and comfortably. That will be the test if you will own it.
