iamqman's review"Cool and chambered"

Gibson Les Paul Standard 2008 Plus
The Les Paul guitar is a fantastic instrument for pretty much any style of music out there. Unlike the Fender Stratocaster or telecaster guitars this guitar can go from country all the way to new metal type tones. The new metal and just pretty much any style of metal that Fender Stratocaster for telecaster's will be old to pull off quite as easily as the Les Paul guitar.

This guitar has two humbucker pick ups installed. With two volume control knobs and two tone control knobs as well as a pick up selector between each humbug to pick up. It's not a over-the-top feature wise guitar but it's a very basic instrument.

SOUNDS


These guitars that well in pretty much any style of music you use but if you use a nice high gain amplifier such as a Bogner, Mesa boogie, or Marshall amplifier that you're getting get a nice big juicy tone is very warm and musical. This guitar does the palm you could chuck a chuck a type tones very well. Primarily because I has a humbucker pick ups but also the thick mahogany and wood that is very dense in the body in the neck. They usually have thicker next to which adds in another dimension of tone and residence. If you use with a clean amplifier's got to get a good tone but not quite as good as you would with a nice overdriven amplifier.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars you can find pretty easily as well but they do come in different types of packages as far as features of different woods and different tops. But you can find them pretty easily in any guitar retailer and online retailer. I highly recommend his guitars because they're very fun to play and they're great for recording and gigging musicians. Overall they're a great instrument and extremely versatile for pretty much any solid music.

iamqman's review"Burst and Burst"

Gibson Les Paul Standard 2008 Plus
The Gibson Les Paul is one of the best rock 'n roll and metal guitars there's ever been created. When they first came out back in the 50s guitar players at that time refused to play them because they were so use to fender style guitars. This was made of mahogany wood which is good to give it a warmer and fatter tone which most of the music then was based around the clean side of music, and when I meet clean, I mean clean amplifiers. This guitar doesn't really shine when it's in a clean amplifier setting. It really shines when it's coupled with a high gain amplifier such as Marshall amplifier, Mesa boogie, or any other high gain amplifier.

SOUNDS


This is a kind guitar that you can use primarily any pop, rock, or metal setting. If you play this guitar with a clean and you're not really going to find that it's not that usable and not brilliant and bright in tone. Since it has a mahogany body and neck with the rosewood fretboard which this is generally a thicker and fatter tone which is not that conducive to clean playing. But it does excel when you have a lot of to distortion or distortion from your pedals. Not that these guitars can't play a clean amplifier but they just don't have that tone because of the warm body of the mahogany wood. The Fender guitars are best in a clean setting and medium gain settings because of the single coils and generally they use in alder wood, ash wood, and a maple wood. So therefore the clean are going to be very responsive and very articulate.

OVERALL OPINION


I recommend anyone to get a Gibson Les Paul guitar because are very versatile and they sound amazing. They have a good chunky thick neck which gives a great tone and overall is a very fun and exciting guitar play. Especially if you're in hard rock, pop, or metal band. These are fun guitars and you can find the menu used section pretty easily. I would recommend playing one first because sometimes it gets Les Paul's can vary from guitar to guitar. That is the downside of guitars is that sometimes one of them is going to feel a lot better than the other. They seem to be inconsistent in recent years so my advice is to play it before you buy it.

iamqman's review"Nice like honey sticky sweet"

Gibson Les Paul Standard 2008 Plus
The Les Paul guitar is simply the best hard rock guitar that you can't buy. This one features a finger in maple top on top of the mahogany wood body neck. The fretboard is a nice solid rosewood fretboard the features block pearl inlays for the frets. You get to volume control knobs into town control moms and a pickup selector. You get two humbuckers which are burstbuckers that sounds very classic and it's Les Paul guitar. The tone of this guitar is a very smoky it's sick fat sounding guitar. It has that classic Les Paul tone that is heavy and powerful. The only thing I don't like about this guitar is that it's a chambered body. That means the tone is it going to be as robust in sick is a non-chambered gets Les Paul guitar.

SOUNDS

This guitar sits very well in the mix with the maple top of the mahogany wood. This too is really balance this guitar out very well and gives it a good silky smooth as robust talk. This guitar sounds exceptional with any high gain amplifier setting. Put this in front of a Mesa boogie or Marshall amplifier you can get some great solid hard rock tones. The look of this guitar also matches the tone of the the guitar very well. The honey burst just puts this guitar a league of its own. It has a vintage look pay modern design. It has to PLEK machine setup which balances out the frets to their machine suspect precise measurements.

OVERALL OPINION

At new you can find these guitars for right around $2700 which is sort of expenses for guitar for most people but then again this is a professional guitar. This guitar is for professional to grab or somebody knows exactly what they're looking for. I recommend this guitar to anyone you want to step into a modern Gibson Les Paul.
