Hatsubai's review"P90 Equipped Deluxe"

Gibson Les Paul Deluxe - Modded w/ PAF
The Les Paul Deluxe style guitars are those that are generally equipped with P90s, although a few of the owners out there have modified them with humbuckers. They're generally very solid players and can really deliver the P90 tone if you get the right one. 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

These models are put together very well. The first thing you notice is that the finish itself was pretty much flawless. I couldn't find any drips or any issues where the binding meets the paint. The nut itself was cut perfectly, so there were no tuning problems to worry about. The frets on this were nicely leveled, and I was able to get some nice action going. The ends were also not sharp, so it didn't hurt your hand every time you went up and down the neck.

SOUNDS

The guitar sounds pretty good, but they're stock Gibson pickups. I'm not totally crazy about these. The sound average, in my opinion. The bridge is medium output, and it sounds fat. However, it doesn't overdrive the amp like I like my pickups to. The neck is a bit too bright for my tastes, but you can calm it down with the tone pot. The coolest thing is the coil split feature. This allows you to split the pickups to get that almost single coil sound. It makes this guitar crazy versatile.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for a good, solid P90 equipped guitar, this could be what you're looking for. I'm not entirely sure why the owner said this is a Micro PAF guitar, but I have a feeling he was talking about it being equipped with P90s, which most all of the Deluxes have. If you're going to buy one, I'd recommend buying one in person so you can test it out yourself and see how you like it.

Noukie's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Les Paul Deluxe 1976 - Hambuckers"

Gibson Les Paul Deluxe - Modded w/ PAF
This is the Deluxe model, made in 1976 by Gibson USA. It bears the serial No. 06112954.
I bought in 2006 for € 1,800 at the time.
Goldtop finish, it has evolved so divine, revealing oxidation pigments that give it incredible mouth traces.

Equipped with original mini-humbuckers Gibson, it has been a popular modification in the 80s which resulted in the establishment of two Seymour Duncan 57 humbucker (which required the expanding slots for microphones).
The body is mahogany, 2-ply, with an arched maple top and binding.
The rest of the equipment is pure Gibson juice: 2 volumes / 2 tone / 3-position selector, bridge + tailpiece Tun-O-Matic / stopbar Aluminum, chrome hardware. The bridge was changed during my purchase, the original starting to sag after 30 loyal service.
Mechanical Groover does not seem original.

UTILIZATION

The handle is unusual: it is a glued-on maple neck (3 parts), with a rosewood fingerboard. It has 22 frets and has a rounded profile type 1959, with a binding of the most beautiful effect. Maple is uncommon in Gibson, is one of the reasons for my purchase because I wanted a guitar with a sharper than usual Paul's sound.
The button has the usual landmarks trapezoidal Pearloid.
In terms of ergonomics, we are in the presence of Paul ... It weighs about 4.9 kilograms, or the weight of a dead donkey! Access to acute is correct thanks to the cut, the handle is very comfortable but needs time to adjust for small hands.
Mine was refrettée in 2004, it is very well adjusted and the action is very low (maintenance and DNG settings in Paris).

SOUNDS

It sounds very Rock / Hard with a beautiful grain and a sharp pronounced (maple neck) mitigated by Seymour Duncan.
I think she excels crunch sounds. Paradoxically, it is doing a lot of clean sounds (neck pickup).
In a tube amp, it really shows its range of shades - just play the volume button to access a good range of adjustments without touching the amp. And as soon as you push the gain, it's good that Roar is the appointment !!!

OVERALL OPINION

She came into my collection in 2006 and I do not regret it.
I do not see me yet again with this guitar, or play it live, it is much too heavy for my fragile épaules.Je love it anyway: it tells a story when you look closely and his Gibson there. This is a very precise instrument that I like to use for registration. Despite his almost 40 years, it is extremely playable, even if it is riddled with shots and wear marks, which adds to its charm!
