    Excellent guitar

    Gibson Les Paul BFGPublished on 01/15/13 at 12:27
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Manufactured in the USA, 50s rounded neck, 22 frets, 1 and 1 P90 Burstbucker

    USE

    Handle very pleasant, not too heavy, good access to acute,

    SONORITS

    In terms of sonorits: Excellent!
    Roundness and warmth of P90 rivaling the edge of the Burstbucker and intermediary position of any beauty. Although the distortion is his playground, in the sonorits are very clean thanks to the bluesy P90 ... In short an excellent guitar

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    This guitar is flat normment me, fills me with his inimitable style, and the alliance of these two microphones that in only found in high-end Gibson!

    Made in the USA, almost classical GIBSON:

    Channel a little beam rosewood 22 frets (not easy sweeps of the second octave of the handle ...)

    P90 neck pickup and bridge pickup Burstbucker 3 zebra (no cache ...), 2 volume 1 tone wooden buttons. Micro switch positions 3 and Killswitch.

    Easel set Tunomatic and stopbar tailpiece, Grover all black hardware.

    Body and mahogany neck, carved maple top table with room resonances (chambered body)

    She is beautiful and well painted!

    Everything (almost) been said if it is no more than a few different sets sow confusion (absence or presence of trussrod cache problem or not the killswitch etc.) ...

    It may be that the killswitch is wired incorrectly original! See the trick Royuth about this but I 'go back.

    By against good overall finish.

    UTILIZATION

    The whole is well-balanced, weight is much lighter than the Les Paul (I know) with the chambered body, moreover it gives the guitar a beautiful acoustic resonance!

    To handle the bin that is typical Gibson again, rather thick, acute access not easy ... One needs to get used to a little grip n 'is not great but it s' is also there. It is pleasant.

    No problem keeping the tuning for mine.

    We quickly found a good sound!

    SOUNDS

    It is a unique combination that P90 and BurstBucker choice. It is what 'm really interested and I must say that I have been served!

    The P90 is great for clean sounds (and all kinds of effects)! For more severe or crunches distos it's worse, almost more joints and the sound is "mat".

    The BurstBucker is really intended to overdrive and distos. A nice grain, enough "edge" with a big fishing.

    J really like these pickups and their combination is also great! The buttons work well and offer a wide range of sounds.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For the record I have bought at the store where I worked at the time and it's I who have received out of the box (I confirm moreover critical to the factory settings ...) . It was just as GIBSON the sent ...

    I'm long past for a madman to explain that there was a problem with this guitar, a strange electrical hum from that you do not touch the guitar ...

    Since Royuth thank you for the tip!

    Yes because the killswitch was wired wrong. But the guitar was apparently inspected (the checklist in the case was validated ...).

    It is absolutely unacceptable for me! They are the fart GIBSON USA, haha! Like what quality the serious application work vaunted ...

    I 'm still was able to accept this problem, first because I don' t seem to find the problem and then with a good noisegate I 'm going out as well as possible, while the entire planet slanderous do not able to make it sound completely!

    Since then, I have reversed the red and white cables from the selector magic killswitch and more noise. I recommend to all those who have problems with noise that they s' not explain that despite the fact that they played with MonsterCable jacks (and know a little about the instrument cables and connectors) have acquired a new who spent hours testing with other amps in different places with other electric jacks etc. ...!

    Yes, I have resented this story ... lol

    I want to clarify that I do not take my case to a general and I do not want to denigrate a brand, model or anything else, but it seemed important to say that I have lived.

    Apparently many other users of this model or brand that have been and are still very satisfied with their instruments.

    It is today the only case I can leave the ring and get the max.



    My conclusion:

    It's been a while since I have and this is clearly the most versatile of my guitars. I made the handle, I have rewired the killswitch and I 'really love to play it, it sounds to hell, is convenient to carry, light!

    In terms of getting a good sound so easy and the p90 Burstbucker 3 gives me exactly what I needed.

    SOUNDS

    Good to dwell on the sound (it's still the most important I think.) This guitar is really perfect, far from being versatile I wanted a guitar that will give me a nice fat blues distortion to a big punchy for rock (Turbonegro, motorhead ...), although the ET Burstbucker p90 and its just amazing to cela.J 've played most often on a Line 6 Bogner valve112 lamp, but also a Randall MTS head lamp 50w, and fender blues deluxe, I never found him getting default what I wanted easily.
    Only bemol a buzz in the p90 but nothing really good handicapping.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about a year I hesitated to take a Gretch also has in place but ultimately I do not regret my choice I certainly remake, I put a 10 because I find a bit exaggerate the opinion that this basis on a test store and located the defect of the world has a guitar so that's what it is I will not blame access to acute quite normal for a les paul or finish but their quality and interest on the brief guitar value for money in hand is really good.
    This is a guitar that I recommend to punchy rock or blues-man on acid ^ ^.

    Gibson Les Paul BFGPublished on 05/04/07 at 15:00
    I've been playing guitar for five years and decided i need a guitar to suit my ability. I play in two bands, which are both rock/metal as well as recording my own stuff.

    I bought the Les Paul BFG for £700 (around $800?) in a coda music (Hertfordshire, England). I bought the guitar as it was the best guitar i've probably ever played. Also, it was also the only Les Paul i've played that i like and that suits me style of music.

    Firstly, the unfinished finish is great. The gold unfinished feel of the wood is just to die for and it looks great just hanging from my wall. Also, the combination of the P90 and Burstbucker make a great teram when playing anything from clean blues, to full out metal…

    I've been playing guitar for five years and decided i need a guitar to suit my ability. I play in two bands, which are both rock/metal as well as recording my own stuff.

    Firstly, the unfinished finish is great. The gold unfinished feel of the wood is just to die for and it looks great just hanging from my wall. Also, the combination of the P90 and Burstbucker make a great teram when playing anything from clean blues, to full out metal. The action of the neck is also incredibly low and easy to play. There is no truss rod cover on this model, but it's deliberate to give it that unfinished, raw feel, which gives the axe it's own personality and character.

    The strap buttons were quite small, but they were shortlived as I replaced them with straplocks. Otherwise, i have no peroblems with this guitar.

    The construction, although unfinished, is well built with no signs of bad assembly or poor craftmenship. The guitar is made in the USA and goes to show the guitar is very well buiit.

    This guitar is amazing and well worth the money I payed for it. It's probably one the best Under £1000 ($1100?) Les Pauls i've ever played. I'd recommend it anyone who wants an axe which is both flawless and affordable.

    Ultra Thin, lightweight body relative standard LP

    UTILIZATION

    Handle very crude but pleasant, we have to get used to not buy an LP sleeve having a flat and fast.

    I did change the weld Kill switch as explained in tricks. it is unacceptable for Gibson to have a finish welding (10 euros once in my guitar seller)

    SOUNDS

    The sound is huge in acute envis I had to change it so I tried various guitars on my amp with a well in the EMG81 Bursbuker3 atomizes the EMG (less cold but more power and as much precision)
    Intermediate position for the P90 + BB3 clean open well, nice.

    Personally I like it send big sound position in acute

    OVERALL OPINION

    after a big desire to change the 7-string guitar for a Luxury or a 6 string EMG to the metal. I tested, I finally keep my BFG.

    this is a very endearing guitar, it takes over 15 min test in store for an idea

    Two microphones: one in BB3 bridge and a P-90 in the sleeve.

    UTILIZATION

    Channel lumberjack, I prfr a 60 'but you get it! Same for the abscence of the key landmarks. you get used quickly to points on the cot of the handle.
    Access to acute Lespaulien is, if you know what I mean. The weight is present. lighter than my Cort M400 but much more than my PRS. Good strap must, but not death!
    the sound is good right now, whatever the rglages, ca send!

    Cot lctronique, mine is rewired in standart, the sudden I recupre a micro tone, and ca is important.

    SOUNDS

    On the bridge, its a rather modern accommodates many disto. crunch has ac / dc, heavy distortion or light metal, ... is its domain. a little loud and we thank the tone a little to rein in the treble.
    p-90 is round and chaud.divain the clear and very good in a blues record, but will stop at the gain, if not, it gets rough.
    Between the two micro is the big gap but it allows to consider all the config settings and all kind of music
    The combination of two microphones (+ the opportunity to play on the flight tone) offers a bit of roundness to the bridge or a bit of clarity to the neck pickup, ca dpend how we see!

    In short, the fat, heavy, gibson, but changes of the Lord 490. I could compare it with a studio, p90 is doing rather well.

    I play on a laney lamp and I love playing on volumes for a clear sound on the stick and send heavy on the bridge just by playing the selector: fadetoblackaddict:

    OVERALL OPINION

    I for 1 year. I dreamed of an LP and n'tant not a fan of the studio and not having the budget for a standart, I had to find a compromise. She should look at both of the sounds. Quality price ratio very good (mine has no default finish).
    I recommend it to someone who only plays on a guitar as she can do anything.
    If you play country music, there are the tls, + if you are very heavy metal, look LTD, but for everything else you can think of the BFG. (Must still apprcier gibson sound)
    I'm sorry it just is not in standart cable home and a handle 60 '...

    an Epiphone LP Custom is well above in quality and finish, I reported the next day the store of purchase for the change with a studio LP, I had to add 300 euros more but I do not reget ca n has nothing to do, I was ready to take the place an Epiphone LP Custom,
    In conclusion, this is a scam LP BFG,

    SOUNDS

    Ha sound! I do all this rock tou ca

    Well I branch into a peavey classic30 (sometimes coupled with a Vox Tonelab SE).

    The P90 is super hot and rather fat, specific settings are therefore needed, but sounds as good. With a bit of crunch sound quickly becomes "fit in".

    The intermediate position is very interesting in the clear. There are sounds very funky I think. Reggae also sounds.

    The double Burstbucker: then with that there, you can send the sauce. Grosse disto without problems. But with less gain (type rock'n'roll), ca does too much.
    In his clear, micro sounds like "double bridge". As its dry enough so typical of the double bridges.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost two weeks, and I was really starting to love the scratches.
    I once had an ibanez RG2620 prestige and I am not at all unhappy with the change. I find its more accurate than the ibanez (which had yet IBZ pickups / di Marzio!)

    I wanted a guitar without vibrato, and I turned to Gibson like, and then I saw the scratches to 1100 euros in tho-tho. The combination of micro, style and my budget stuck with this model, then ....

    This is a great choice for me!

    EDIT 22/06/2007: It is now 4 months and I use the bfg my opinion is very positive. I did 6 concerts, twenty repeated with more home use ... The guitar sounds very well for my taste, I love the P90, it's fairly crude fat comes out. The bridge pickup terrible distortion, and the combination of two plain.

    The holding of the agreement is still good. Short, but fun to use each

    PS: I do not understand the opinion of "executor"!

    SOUNDS

    I play blues, heavy mtal, jazz / rock
    p 90 allows for sounds like vintage crunch and easily saturated

    I use a Peavey Classic 30: its clear, there is a strong prsence of serious
    allows incursions jazz, even so sr guitar is not "target" jazz
    the crunch sound is excellent, with a rounded idalie for the blues
    Finally, if I use the muff electro harmonix mtal, regardless of the microphone, guitar
    reached for which she is Designed: big sound, sustain galore!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this scratching for 2 months, just to Drout dpart its lack of finish (Gibson plays the card into an object of the thousand places iconoclastic Paul ond table Saddle e, or "bird-eye" and is free of dtails that increase the price) the table is so "raw" it looks like a battlefield hollows and bumps guaranteed ... Drout what fans of the old Les Paul (ditto for the lack of polish and truss-rod cover ... but the pice only costs a few euros!) however, the know-how Gibson is pr feels in manufacturing: the sound is impressive, the ergonomics are perfect. what more? I find the report qualitprix remarkable. we can make all the comparisons of the world regret the LP Dad and Grandpa ... the object has a smell, a raw look vintage / custom and sound that make it a beautiful guitar as effective. we can attach as much as the purists / iconoltres the flee ...

    Good to beginners, super Packing j'tais had my Gibson, rve ... I wanted more, I wanted to go rpeter to connect the BTE and kill everything!
    But then if you like noise in your sound, you will be served!
    You will need a strong noise reducer (ns2 me I used the boos).
    Ms. low volume, even with the kill switch, you'd be using a laptop softphone to the amp, seriously, this is a default of ALL bfg (with distortion, course, even with the gain 1 / 4). I say all the bfg is because today, APRS 5 days of use, I ended up rsoudre refer to the store, see if c'tait not a default design or workmanship ... I tried the Yellow ocher ... same thing, parasites even stronger than on my black ... well I will try the rose ... even on large parasite my black but in addition, the guitar came out of the volume (and not a little) even with the kill switch engaged!! And the seller told me that all these noises, snoring, etc. are normal parasite on bfg, it's cheap guitars ... even when 1100euros!
    Regretfully, I can give them and take Ltd EC1000 Black satin look awesome ... great guitar, but not at gibson ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    The sound is great, really no dception, but it stops playing ds, hello anxiety, I distinctly heard a prfre chalk on a blackboard or Krugger freddy with his claws on a Glass ... but for all fans of his "sles" c'te with scratches ... you will be served you will say "yes but with a noise reducer" or "yes but not if you play , cut your disto "... These problems I'm talking about certainly appears clearly in a sound spectrum, we will record an album and I wish a lot of courage all the ings around the world to clean up all the audio tracks for guitarists who bought a bfg ... really, on this one should have the gibson rethink the thing ...
    Still, a guitar with a great look, all the harmonics on the neck, a greasy made in his gibson ... parasites and dirt from its lowered me note 6points.
    Essay the volume loud enough to feel what I mean ...

    SOUNDS

    She should really my style trs hard rock metal, it is less than the esp type can be a little less effective in large saturations. But the grain a bit "dirty" Gibson added a fawn charm has tt that you play with. The two microphones are really bcp personality. The p90 is impressive for a simple microphone, position it intermdiaire amme tend to prevail over the bridge pickup.
    -The sound distortion is fat and rev a little crunchy
    It clear in his pickup is not good on the other hand. but in an intermediate position or severe ets c trs well. I do not like slamming his clear too, is the perfect

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for one month only. I love the sound a bit "dirty" in the sense of the term of this guitar. I have the black model, I find this guitar on the aesthetic DGIG a true spirit of rock and more rock this spirit is not expensive as it is just enough to remove the finished pr obtain this spirit root. I just changed the buttons knobs and replace them with so much ... Crne go thoroughly into the spirit of this guitar DCAL. The ratio quality price is right for once in gibson, but if not all aspect of this guitar can please some of it is that others will refuse to put 900 euros in a guitar over the knife I can ... understand. But I love her look "destroy". If c I was again do it again, and this with my esp gibson prs little head I cover the sounds j'apprcie

    The only small BMOL slecteur the position of the microphone, which is a bit difficult to ACCS.
    A reversal of switches could be INTERESTED

    SOUNDS

    Branch on my Marshall head 70, via a Mesa Bottle Rocket is a killer.
    You can not play any prs from blues to metal.
    Unlike some critics, I find her absolutely gniale, prcis, aggressive when
    desired, or soft and round the other way around.
    The sound pickup is absolutely identical suprme a Les Paul (3000USD) I've experienced at the same time.
    And the whole is much better than a Les Paul classic, playing rock and hard rock

    OVERALL OPINION

    This guitar has an excellent report qualitprix.
    A sound worthy of the "great" modern Les Paul.
    I would do without this choice hsiter.

    Last day to 31/10/07:

    For three months I played with and my opinion remains unchanged really a super skyscraper for the rock / hard rock.
    For the problem of noise mentioned in the opinion just plug the amp on a "true" earth ground. Classroom RPET or concert, my disto Mesa road, not a sound, not a parasite, and the kill switch really plays a rle.

    for the rest of my comrades previous posts have already summed up the picture of the baby in question.

    Quick History: Gibson for some time trying to return to the niche occupied by the "copier" LTD which has taken over part of the market. Gibson gives results in the "destroy" in the "jeunz of" playing to the Metal of jneuz. The look of the guitars to follow. in the case of the BFG is also one of the important points for choosing this guitar, its appearance is taken into account in its accessibility (see below).

    UTILIZATION

    This is where Gibson is "correct" if I may say so, a fault become a feature of the Les Paul: an enormous weight that you just warp back after several months of rehearsals, but participating in the musical identity of the instrument.

    So recently, some of the creations of Gibson are dug. In some ways eased fairly sensitive.
    The direct result: a sound that would happen almost amp (I said almost). This was my first pleasant surprise by trying it. No need to connect it to hear you purring in the guts.

    As soon as you tell yourself that once connected, it must still have an impact.

    And then there is no picture of velvet. (More details below).

    Before detailing the sound so I continued on ergonomics.

    Leaving a '76 Explorer, it changes a lot. shape, size, weight and especially the handle.

    There is no varnish and as they say here some: it is rougher, the fear of hanging.
    I hung already personal with the sleeve of my varnish Explorer (grime concerts, humidity, etc. ..).
    I thought that indeed it would make things even more difficult.

    Here's an idea quickly swept away by a few hours on the machine: no problem to move, it runs by itself, or better than the varnish. Let me explain: the aspect of "porous" wood, that moisture evaporates very quickly by hand and personally I have gained in fluidity of play

    Access to acute: good to be honest when you buy a Les Paul should not have any illusions, access to this part of the handle is never easy. Also in comparison with the Explorer, I did not feel much difference. Up 15-16 the box is still correct, go beyond immediate force held the handle different, that after a history of taste and habit. if you have to play a round of solo and not come complaining.

    I will join still a negative comment for access to the pickup selector a little to the west, behind the buttons of volume and tone. Not super convenient switch regularly.

    Unlike the killsiwtch (a very good idea) would could be at that place (it smells like hack into the body of the guitar soon to fix it: D)

    SOUNDS

    Sound: not looking for a medium on this guitar, there is no or very little. its spectrum switches from a sharp gain very hot, well detailed with a wealth quite impressive for such a scratch. And a mass grave sweeping you in the face as soon as you switch on the microphone serious. The difficulty is then (as often on a Les Paul or Explorer) to play with the volume knobs for the pieces. To take a shot, that I had on the Explorer.

    My style, I would have to define my style. making recovery Rock, it affects all my faith and I both managed to adapt to the Blur of Stones, such as ACDC, the Ulgy Kid Joe or Steppenwolf. Some problems of clarity on its funkiest rhythm (but good Fender is not here for that).

    It was tested on a Marshall JCM2000 studio, clear, crunch as lead. Hard not to find satisfaction.

    Its strong point that it finally made me feel better (for now) is this multitude of details in each note lead.
    Rhythmically it is square, it breaks not, for the metal, it défourraille well while avoiding its too cold Rican typed Jackson or Ibanez (especially recent).

    A little trouble with the bass sometimes too bold for some time aclimatation will be required to learn to know her.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I owned a 1997 Gibson Explorer '76 in 8 years that I kept. I am separated because I felt more comfortable on it and after testing several Les paul I really had a better feeling on it. The Explorer was very good, but too Péchu at times. So welcome exit Explorer and Les Paul BFG

    I bought the beast itself, three days ago, so it's a hot view. At first I was a little confused, I even thought I would regret my purchase. I tested again for 3 hours. my mistake: playing with the strap set for the old guitar, result: a bad position and difficulty to play.

    Some mechanical and a few inches (strap) above, I found the right place between her and me. I managed it on things I was struggling to pass on the old (and yet I love the Explorer).
    I will say that I love most: it simply a soul. This extreme heat. crachotte it a little when we do not know how too tame. just the same "problem" fishing microphones as the original Explorer.

    The bass is super heavy, so have to think to play the volume. The highs are pure Gibson style, on a canal in 2000 JCM crunch with just winning 2-3, which is going out live ACDC.

    Been tested on my poor dung Park 10 watts (ah ben neighbors love him more than 80), I was quite surprised to have come to the "acceptable" on this type of amp.

    I got new (street Douet, thank you Universal) with fly and Straplock matching (black) € 820 for all, given its starting price (end 2007), it seems to me rather a good deal. However, with such a scratching sound personality for less than € 1,000 it becomes rare. Here is Gibson's guarantees, so why deprive yourself.

    However, I think investing in a guitar darker and colder (type Ibanez 7-string)

    For the notice with experience, I will return in a few months to tell you, even if I already have an idea.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This guitar is a marvel of sound.

    I bought 3 months ago and every time I play it (every day), it surprises me a little more.

    His report qualitprix is ​​more than excellent.

    It sounds like an old Gibson (P90), see Opinion Fantomas - Kilroy1976 - Olaf - pussy etc ... unless of seb_c_bien (or it fell on a rotten plank or I do not understand).

    I regret nothing and I do not sell it!
