    Side settings, I would have preferred an overall volume control instead of two individual, it's the same for all Les Paul, but it can change.
    Difficult to do on the Supreme because it must pass through the plate jack!

    UTILIZATION

    This is a Les Paul, but supreme.
    The average weight 9livres LP, but some 7.2 or 10livres.
    Mine 8.6 pounds

    SOUNDS

    You want to play that goes with the sound of the guitar, and as a wide range is available, you can not stop.
    What surprised me most is the side without acoustic amp, which allows working unplug.
    Connected, plain neck pickup or both, it is a LP with more body, its close on Larry Carlton's 335. For big sound no surprise, it sends very strong. The LP that I had, luxury 68, 25/50 anniversary, custom shop85 Standard is the most versatile.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two months.
    For over fifty years since I played, I just tried everything. I still have a couple of guitars, but the Supreme does not duplicate in the park.
    The icing on the cake is that you can work without the plug.
    The beauty of the instrument itself is worth the price alone, then with SOUND more ...
    With experience, I make this choice without hesitation.

    Gibson Les Paul Supreme

    Gibson Les Paul SupremePublished on 09/08/04 at 15:00
    I bought this unit at a guitar center in town. I thought it looked appealing and semed to ask me to buy it. So I went ahead and shelled out $850.

    I like the high output on the humbuckers

    The only thing I have to complain about is the body shape. if they made it single cutaway it would be better

    The construction is solid and sturdy. When i first bought the unit it was nice and shinny, but after playing it its become a little worn.

    I thought this was a great guitar for all levels of playing and the Humbuckers give out an amazing sound.

    Controls: Two each tone and volume with three-way pickup selector switch
    Machine heads: Grover Keystone
    Hardware: Gold plated
    Case: Black reptile pattern hardshell

    It's also worth mentioning that these are technically hollowbody guitars, which seems to be something a lot of people miss when they buy these. A quick note about this. Most Les Pauls are chambered or weight relieved which is totally different from being a hollowbody, which the Supreme is. That, along with different inlays and tuners and a 50's neck is what set this apart from it's cousin the Les Paul Custom.

    UTILIZATION

    I have smaller hands and the neck is sort of a love hate thing for me. It can be awkward for certain chords but on the bright side, my hand rarely gets tired after 3 hours of playing like on some smaller necks. Overall I'm fine with it. This is a lighter guitar than it looks due to the hollow construction. It's a little thicker than your normal Les Paul. Feels more like you're playing a jazz body to be honest. Other than that it's pretty familiar. Controls are the same. Tuners are solid.

    SOUNDS

    I think this guitar gets a bad rep because players buy it expecting a suped up Les Paul Custom. It's not that kind of guitar. This is in truth more like an ES175 than anything. It's a jazz guitar. Super resonant and prone to feedback just like any hollowbody, you have to be mindful of a guitar's construction and what that means. Gibson picked the wrong pickups for this guitar. It sounds monumentally better with 57 classics than the very non complimentary set they put in it. Unfortunately due to the design it's very hard to change pickups although not impossible. I use it to play at church. It's very resonant and kind of heavenly sounding so it works great for that. This is not a guitar for hard rock. A lot of guys get that idea and it has resulted in some bad rep for the Supreme.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I really love mine and considering the luxury features the high price actually makes sense. I can imagine these are pretty expensive to make. Gibson should really put some different pickups in these...I don't know what they were thinking. Also the headstock is a bit ugly. I have a lot of people come to me asking what model this is because it's a rarity and oddity to most. Still it's a fine guitar when used for the proper style.

    SOUNDS


    I really like the tone of these guitars with high gain amplifier in mind. Preferably I'd choose Marshall amplifier's because it seems to be just a great classic connection between this guitar and those amplifiers. It must be the voicing or just the overall chemistry of the two pieces of gear when they unite together. But they sounds so great together that it's very addicting tone to have on hand. The overall feeling I get when playing a Marshal or a high gain amp with a Les Paul is almost instant gratification. It is so smooth and full of tone that is almost impossible to put down.

    OVERALL OPINION

    You can find these guitars for right around $1899 in most guitar shops and online retailers. These are very cool guitars for the moment and a much improved step up from eh Studio models of the Gibson Les Paul guitars. I would recommended this guitar o anyone who doesn't need the cool flamed maple tops and still wants a rocking guitar without paying the Custom LP prices.

    Quality has a lot to handle ... Indeed, a patent "less sticky" than a gibson std and a touch lala a friend! an ebony fingerboard with a smooth (touch) amazing!
    The frets are very nice, it goes all alone, not addicted ...
    Those who know will know that the Gibson Les Paul saw the point of access to acute and ben is not very easy but it gets there ...
    It is a very well balanced scratches as well when playing sitting and standing.
    The weight and ben y'en that says it's heavy and a LP ben I not tell you more than anything else ... no seriously we see that it's solid, it's not a skyscraper in plastoc! good but the weight is not excessive and is very tolerable. Personally I do not suffer at all ...

    SOUND! ahhhhhhhhhhh is a killer! is not a supreme for nothing! you plug you play it as simple as that and the worst is that it sends live!

    SOUNDS

    For me I could not find a better scratch! damn she is just amazing! clean the lens well (yes I assure you even for an LP) has the distortion of ill sends it's delirium! every time I play I will not believe my ears!
    I said her name is not supreme for nothing!
    To tell you ... already the custom mailings serious but it's not clear c but the supreme ecstasy is the level above. If so I assure you, I have compared since before I had a custom ...
    Well I not play on the amp rotten I agree ... I play solo mesa pfffffffff correct and you plug it sounds ... not need to look ten years! I have a friend who plays on an ESP with EMG and all that goes with Ben and my friends ... Means the difference ... The Supreme puts him a good slap has ESP! my buddy does it have still not recovered!
    She can do anything from blues to death. So all sonnorités suit me!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 months
    What I like least ... pfffffff nothing! is an exceptional guitar.
    If the patent can be a little grip handle that but hey it's really not a problem ...
    I love its versatility and sound! what sound!
    My opinion is high praise I know but I tried many guitars before, and of all, ESP Eclipse ESP viper, Gibson LP Standard 2002 60's (which I very well but the level below) Gibson LP Custom, Lag Roxanne Floyd, XTSA Godin, PRS custom 22, therefore, very good guitars have their strengths and weaknesses, but not at the LP Supreme. I was blown away when I heard and when I played.
    The value for money is still not terrible! it is super expensive especially in France! it is a shame! Of course you pay the brand but still!
    I was forced by my wallet and my common sense (yes there's no strong cash cow!) To buy it abroad (Netherlands) to 1,100 euros less than in FRANCE!

    With the experience I remake that choice even if I have to eat my legs for several ... and I hesitate to sell my other guitars to buy me another in order to bring in another tuning.
    Frankly I am super fan of this guitar ... I love it!

    mcaniques all spices are gold plated and the frets are gold alloy, beautiful !!!!! with nice logo on the supreme head

    UTILIZATION

    A handle end for a les paul, very modern with a good evolution (in large handle for beginners and refined arrangements for solos)
    Accessibility assistive trs correct one for a les paul cen'est not the handle of a 1950 for example
    the advantage of this gibson is that it does not pse a dead donkey, and finally this is not a strat disont but that the body "curly ebony" Allgemeine guitar without affecting its .
    the sound is very easy to get a les paul is primarily so ... all is said

    SOUNDS

    I play rock, mtal, pop, blues, so it is perfect this style, Deplus branch in a good light and a marshall rolls!
    the sound is typical gibson, bold and full of serious mdium a little runny but so enjoyable!
    in the rack is a well rounded crmeux in the neck position and treble in the bridge position convaiquant
    Most impressive is the sustain, monstrous! I test in the store on the rplique Jimy hendrix marshall and I felt I feedback in the amp that came back to vibrate in the body of the guitar to finger ... sensation ever seen with another guitar, I'm falling in love.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I recently (a surprise gift from my wife, I know why I push!)
    what I like most is its looks, class and trs is vintage but not too much (I'm not a fan of guitars that are so old they're new, or the colors a little r tro, which gives the impression of being dull fadace. is a matter of taste, but in the store, there was no photo. Deplus manufactured 400 examplaires this makes it a pice of a rare especially as autumn color burst is not a current color that gives the impression that the Les Paul of all the world (it is original brief).
    what I like least about this guitar is ... nothing
    the limit for beginners that there is no overlay on the handle (the assumed) can be debilitating, although there are points on the edge of repre run but it's a good dtail for some that can be boring.
    then report quality price: great! certe cen'est not a guitar Euro 1000 but it is worth the cost and it is far from the price of PRS (Gibson has made an effort in its tariffs)

    I play on line6 but sometimes on marshall (unable to separate myself from my old amp) and must say that the sound is terrible as the one over the other. When I start to ask more I get the guitar. Whether it's a big solo attack or it makes perfectly!

    I am a bit disappointed with the clean sound but I think my amp settings are not optimal but frankly, here is the distortion that is expressed ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    So ultimately already owned several guitars, I would be willing to sell them all to keep this one because for me unbeatable (even custom Gibson and PRS are not up) and 12/10 overall rating is just for if 15/10 price.

    Last remark unfortunately no way to find it I went around Europe (by itself) to the European importer, and then the parent company in Nashville United States, must answer the same everywhere to find in an old stock at an official dealer ...
    Me I was lucky after a long search, I ended up in Canada and find grace to the 'decline of U.S. dollar' I made a crazy business!

    OVERALL OPINION

    To conclude on these two years I will not make a Statement in public but ...

    For me, Gibson was able to replace the Custom (Part strutting Custom Shop in the street opposite the last few years, but fortunately still with us) a MODEL worthy of the name.
    -Flawless finish
    Species-beautiful
    Tradition-brand and meets Mr Les Paul (compared to the poorly finished MODELS Standards, trs species not always beautiful, worthy of a weight balsa, but hey I abuse)
    A typ-its versatile but not necessarily affirmbr />-A prize also respecting the tradition ... Unfortunately ...

    In short, I test a bunch of Les Paul and a half (almost all those I meet, it's a disease) and she is one of several MODELS of this century, left the factory " Series "that are worth. With the return of the Les Paul Standard Traditional version, Gibson United States survives even when, despite the criticism ... The Custom Shop s'tant affirm the years, it was feared that really Massman Drive parte lollipop too ... Fortunately, no!
    That said, given its price, it is not a play. It is therefore difficult to see or to have one at home (I speak especially for us moves away from stores in Paris and especially my dpartement-Var-specially in the old ...)
    Relative quality of the guitar good, big prizes, great quality ... um

    And the famous final question:
    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
    bah ... with the 18 pages I just write I think I t clear ... is a YES!
    A 9 to be global because even when not DCON ... nothing and no one is perfect ... and all this is only my humble opinion.

    Comes with Gibson USA case (+ wider than the other boxes padded leather handle and LP!) Black reptile, white plush interior with silk flap.
    Limited to 400 copies (Guitar of the week 22).



    UTILIZATION

    Nice round handle (between the 50's and 60's): Perfect.
    Access to acute like all Les Paul.
    Beautiful arched back (rare) very nice, well balanced instrument.
    Easily obtained a good sound, sensitive and effective settings (Tone).
    Instrument born of a coupling between the LP and the LP Custom Elegant :-)
    A little less, a rather heavy scratching anyway although his body "chambered".

    SOUNDS

    Sounds quite varied, from jazz to hard, Blues, Pop, Rock ... We spend a CRUCH its crystalline fatty Jazzy just lowering the volume of the microphones. Very warm and round the edge with no worries.
    Its pickups are amazing, you'd think one of my ES-335 * Fender Blues Deluxe.
    I love above all its depth and its présence.Gros, sustain very present!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Any new, I use it for several days.
    His back arched fascinates me, plain sheets without any access to either the selector knobs ... These are accessible via the jack plate (+ large as the other Les Paul).
    His body is also slightly wider than the others + LP.
    The price is quite high given the luxury finishes and the hair of this beauty.
    Guitar of the Week # 22 very successful!
    One of the guitars + luxury I've seen so far, worthy of a Custom Shop!

    When a Les Paul Custom is not good enough

    Gibson Les Paul SupremePublished on 07/11/11 at 17:06
    The Supreme models were a set of models Gibson made that were placed above their Custom level guitars. Now only one model remains in the Supreme line and it is the Les Paul Supreme. This guitar has some crazy features no other Les Paul has but then it has some antiquated features Gibson should have changed decades ago. The most noticable feature is the AAAA figured maple top on this guitar. It is really beautiful and has a really deep look to it. The guitar is your standard Les Paul shape. It has a mahogany body and a fat mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard. The fretboard has 22 frets and has split block inlays I dont think Gibson puts on any other guitar.

    The Supreme models were a set of models Gibson made that were placed above their Custom level guitars. Now only one model remains in the Supreme line and it is the Les Paul Supreme. This guitar has some crazy features no other Les Paul has but then it has some antiquated features Gibson should have changed decades ago. The most noticable feature is the AAAA figured maple top on this guitar. It is really beautiful and has a really deep look to it. The guitar is your standard Les Paul shape. It has a mahogany body and a fat mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard. The fretboard has 22 frets and has split block inlays I dont think Gibson puts on any other guitar. The pickups in this guitar are a pretty strange choice. The SG Supreme I am comparing this to came with Classic 57s while this guitar has a 490R in the neck and a 498T in the bridge. I dont know why they would put seemingly worse pickups in the Les Paul Supreme I was expecting them to have similar electronics and its not like you can easily upgrade the pickups on the Les Paul Supreme like you can on the SG Supreme the Les Paul Supreme has no control cavity plate cover. It has a guady Gibson globe Logo on the headstock instead of the split diamond and a gold truss rod cover. It has non locking Grover Tuners on the headstock also with a standard tune-o-matic as the bridge.

    UTILIZATION

    You can really see that Gibson put form over function with this guitar. To show off the fancy wood they used for the tops and back of the guitar they did not put a control cavity plate on the back. If you are to do any modifications of the inside of the guitar you will have to do it all through the jack plate. I hope you have small hands. The neck on this guitar is pretty fat so you will have to get use to it if you are more accustom to guitars with more modern neck shapes. The tuners are non locking and the bridge is non locking which is more of a gripe for me. With standard tune-o-matic bridges when you are changing strings or working on the guitar the bridge can fall off when it doesnt have string tension. This can easily mess up your intonation making the guitar sound off. There are no straplocks either so be careful if you play this guitar standing up. These are things I would upgrade immediately but I should need immediate upgrades on a guitar that cost 5000 dollars. There are 600 dollar ESP's and Epiphones that have these features why cant Gibson put them on a 5000 dollar guitar. This guitar cost 2000 dollars top to produce a set of 10 dollar tuners are not going to hurt Gibson.

    SOUNDS

    I dont know who would have picked these pickups for this guitar. I think Classic 57s would have worked better all around. The 498T is a pretty hot pickup to be in a classy Gibson like this. I think the output is around 13k. This is pushing into heavy metal output territory. This is a far cry from the smooth tones you would get with a PAF or something similar. The neck position 490 is overly dark and muddy. You can not get any clarity with the neck position on this guitar unless you crank on the tone knob. Normally a set of lousy stock pickups isnt much of a problem but with this guitar you have no real choice unless you are an expert luthier use to working on hollowbody guitars. This guitar has no control cavity cover plate. So any internal work you do on this guitar has to be done through the input jack plate which is about 2 inches by 1.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I think this guitar is more of a collectors piece than a real player. This guitar has less features than a standard Les Paul and tries to make up for them by looking pretty. Pretty wood does not equal good tone all it equals is pretty wood and theft target. If you have the bread and are considering a Les Paul Supreme I would strongly recommend you try out a standard Les Paul Custom first. The Custom is a time tested design and sounds good and is more of a player than this guitar. The Supreme is just a pretty face. This cant be said of the SG Supreme which has the pretty face and all the playability of a normal SG.

    Crazy good looking...and crazy expensive

    Gibson Les Paul SupremePublished on 06/28/11 at 09:21
    The Les Paul Supreme was a model that Gibson released to really show off what they can do. While the outside looks the same, it's actually a bit different. It still has a mahogany body, high quality flame maple top, set mahogany neck, ebony fretboard, 22 frets (gold colored), two humbuckers, two volume knobs, two tone knobs, a three way switch and a TOM hard tail bridge. The biggest and most significant feature would be the chambering in this guitar.

    The guitar is absolutely gorgeous, and the flame on this thing is sick. The new inlays help show off that it's a bit different than your standard Les Paul, as well as the gold frets. The back on this is actually curved…

The biggest and most significant feature would be the chambering in this guitar.

    UTILIZATION

    The guitar is absolutely gorgeous, and the flame on this thing is sick. The new inlays help show off that it's a bit different than your standard Les Paul, as well as the gold frets. The back on this is actually curved or beveled, so it feels a little different in your lap when playing it. It also has no control cavity on the back; it's a gorgeous piece of flame maple. The neck on this is your standard Les Paul neck, and the gold hardware on this really makes the guitar pop. Aside from that, the 12'' radius is also great for lower action and greater bending without fretting out.

    SOUNDS

    Given that it's chambered, this guitar will sound different from other Les Pauls. It seems to have a softer top end and a looser bottom end that may or may not be pleasing to your ears. One thing that really gripes me is that there's no rear cavity due to the chambering. Because of that, replacing the pickups is ridiculously hard. Since I'm not a fan of the standard pickups, this is an issue for me. However, most people seem to generally enjoy the standard Gibson pickups, so it shouldn't be too much of an issue for most people.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The Les Paul Supreme is quite different from the other Les Pauls out there, and it costs a ton of money. It's hard to recommend for most standard guitar players, but if you're looking for one of the most elegant looking Les Pauls ever released on the market, this is the guitar you want to check out. Keep in mind that this has no control cavity, so replacing pickups will be a huge pain.
