    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.

    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!

    it is a good made in United States
    2 double gibson pickups (490R and 498T) three positions, two volume and two tone (what a les paul).

    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)

    SOUNDS

    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!
