Hatsubai's review"Classic old school P90 tone"

Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop (1971)
If you ever wanted to have that old school P90 tone, this is the guitar you want to look for. It has everything about it that just screams "that" tone when you happen to think of P90s. The guitar features a mahogany body with a maple top, mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, trapezoid inlays, pickguard, binding, hard tail bridge, two P90s, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.

UTILIZATION

The neck profiles vary depending on what year you buy, and the one I played had a fairly thick neck. Some people will dislike this, but it was never a huge deal to me. I seem to be able to adapt from super thin necks like the Wizards to extremely thick Nocaster necks without much of a problem. The flatter radius on this was wonderful, and it allowed me to lower the action lower than a normal Strat would allow. The tuners on this model aren't as bad as the older Standard model, but I'd still replace them with locking tuners. Id' also most likely go ahead and refret this guitar as the frets were pretty low on it.

SOUNDS

The P90s in this were pretty mind blowing, but they were some old school Seymour Duncans that I've never seen or heard of before. The standard Gibson P90s are actually pretty good, in my opinion. They get that normal Les Paul P90 tone without too much of an issue...probably because that's exactly what they are. However, these were some Duncan creations that were lower gain P90s for blues, and they were pretty amazing pickups. The bridge was very clear and organic. You could hear every single note ring out, they were that clear. The neck was great for leads, too. That's generally an issue I tended to have as they lacked output, but these had just enough output for what I was looking for.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for a guitar that can deliver the goods in terms of P90 tone, this is the guitar you want to look at getting. The problem is that you'll most likely have to do a bit of work to it. A lot of these had low frets, worn nuts and a few other things that need to be taken care of, so if you happen to buy an older guitar like this, expect to throw a few extra hundred bucks its way to get it playing the way it needs to be.

UTILIZATION

A little more than electric pais normal, one would do and AC reminds me a good round sound.
the sound is the key. (too sharp, very difficult to ring true or not just if you put all his heart) a lot of character must wrest the bend to find the right tone accuracy. This is not a beginner to handle, it is not easy nor difficult play, it is fair.

SOUNDS

Yes every style. Use a transistor roland 5watt, she puts her smack any guitar plugged a lamp.

OVERALL OPINION

Use 2 to 3 times.
It's a bomb that will live much longer. I'm a skyscraper that will sonn on its 40 years and so far I have not seen better in terms of sonority. Gibson myth is alive and rel.
