Us, a lespaul everything from classic with little more than one table in exotic wood, no pickguard, acastillage golden gibson logo on the head and mother of pearl print lespaul model as the std. She is very beautiful and wiser than lp standard satin finish makes it more soft and classy.
Supplied in hard case SmartWood imitation beige tweed (the most beautiful effect) but very poor quality.
The satin finish does not catch the hand and the displacements of the handle are easy. Channel 59 type, large and round, but the comfort is great.
in terms of ergonomics, it's a choice to sit it pitches down and ruin the odds, standing, it ruins the shoulder. What is a les paul.
Lp is a very versatile, it sounds very warm and soft in the neck position and cross the bridge position is as aggressive an lp, but this little dispute that really makes the most versatile. lp is a civilized suitable for many styles of music. Perhaps this versatility comes from the exotic wood table.
I would do this choice. Lespaul a cheap (bought new in Jan 2004 1120th), the original look especially not compared to standard models, and others, it is complementary. She is more beautiful than a studio and certainly less expensive. was that price, hard to find lp so over, and so sweet to play.

Hyde's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Guitar made in United States trs classic in its design as typically Pauline.
Above all, it is beautiful (wood, sleep button, finish ...).
Finally, this guitar is dmarque nanmoins other les paul because I did not vritablement what some criticize these guitars: it is not heavy (unless my ltd viper), it is played sitting no problem, its handle (even if not a rapid MODEL trs is enjoyable (neither too thin nor too wide, low frets plutt ...) .
In short, A model of jouabilit (even if Access in acute is not his strong point)
Should it my style of music? Sr as it can to match all (or almost) the styles of music.
It certainly sounds trs rock, but the clean sounds, especially on the neck pickup (490), are beautiful.
The sound is not too "fat", less so than on a standard (li diffrence the wood of the table ???), which makes this versatile SmartWood trs.
I was looking for a guitar that sounds plutt "old school" to find the legendary sound of my groups prfrs the years 80-90 (Leppard Maiden, Priest, Queensryche, Metallica ...). Well, I found my little les paul plugs into the clean channel (with a little gain) lamps my amp (ashdown fallen angel) through a TS9 and it is the Panard.
Not entered into, that this can scratch that old school sound: saturated branch in the canal it can play things much more "violent" and rcentes: deftones, rammstein, soad ...
on the other hand, if you trash your fans speed thing or something, place your chemein or consider a change of micro (the 498 dera feeble for that).
Itself by the way, the 498, what micro!
Buy on a lightning strike (let us not mince words) first visual and sound 3 weeks ago (in 1395 euros with a gift of a fender frontman 15r amp), the les paul is the best hardware I bought up Submitted. My two other guitars (Start and amricaine ltd viper) are also good guitars, but the motion is not the same when I have my gibson between pognes.
Frankly, given the current price (but also the increasing difficulty of procuring) standards, I think this SmartWood is an excellent quality-price (it is in any case suprieur for a lower price studios to other models).
In short, I do not regret at all, instead of my purchase.
What Les Paul! United States manufacturing
mine is a late 90 model (without the leaf so).
The gold buttons are smooth bells ... they slip a little but you can put a rubber ring
The handle is of polished and satin finish does not stick, a good point.
I play rather fender and the handle did not used to it quickly destabilized. And anyway I'm not the srhedder of death that kill so ...
I love the simple finish round "dot" that changes the trapezius nacre.
Weight is the primary reason for my purchase, because this version has a body very thin (but curved table anyway), which plays heavily on its weight. After trying a studio (old model as non-chambered), there is no picture on my back and said thank you.
I use it:
for the well round the neck pickup on its clear
and then especially when I want to sound angry with micro sharp fully open. While there, the beast is wicked, it sounds very old hard rock 70 ...
again from the studio, I much prefer, it's less rough but this is matter of taste.
I use it in two years time when I am unfaithful to my Telecaster.
Before I tried the studio.
The model I used was not bad and I changed the mechanics. The originals are frankly crying.
nevertheless an unbeatable value for money.

Mine101's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
22 frets, two humbucker bobonages GIBSON, two tone, two violumes
trs enjoyable round, no bigger than my strat
Asss is complicated by the acute to the 17 th box must be a "demanchquot;
heavier than the Start but trs supporting, you have to alternate positions so as not to tire the back
the sound is royal stratospheriens clean sounds, a huge crunch and saturations lespaulienne in short a versatile instrument trs.
I play pop, rock, some funk, even if I reserve my strat this category dernire this lespaul aisment can afford it;
It is remarkable in crunch, a rglage Tone volume can go from light to crunch the saturation playing only on the volume, it was if you want some tunes to acoustic attack is remarkable and Dynamic suprieur my Start, in fact SETTING THE guitar can sound great and this MODEL (APRS of my reading on the net) offers a less confusing than other lespaul, exactly what I was looking for.
I've had three weeks, the IDAL complment the stratum.
I prfre I is the first look the woods are gorgeous, by the way I was in the store when the seller out of the box and its APRS Cases, I essay five minutes and has not had time to be exposed (and I'm left waiting for a FADED SG) is remarkable finish, the sound I had no doubts and I am not deu not SmartWood.
The fretage is a little high at the beginning and the slides are dlicats (this detail is often on the forums).
The report price is excellent quality euros in 1066 left-handed, hard to believe (thank you Michenaud);
