iamqman's review"Gold on the top"

Gibson Les Paul Traditional
The Gibson Les Paul guitar is not really a flashy guitar unless it has a nice quilted maple top work flame maple top but it's just a good hard rocking guitar that is just a workforce for the recording studios or any gigging situation. These are great sounding guitars and they're extremely versatile from genre to genre of music. They sound fantastic and pretty much any setting that you use it with an primarily a hard rock that metal music typesetting. They really excel at the heavy saturated to medium gain amplifier settings.

These guitars come with to humbucker pickups which allows you to get thick juicy warm tone that is coupled with this mahogany wood for the body and the neck. You also have a rosewood fretboard that gives the guitar a nice tonal voicing balance. These guitars fit very well with a Marshall amplifier or really any other high gain amplifier. They sound fantastic when you get a lot of distortion from a pedal or from the amplifiers tube distortion. Since it has mahogany wood the tone is going to be very thick and warm and extremely musical. This guitar carries a lot of soul compare to other guitars that feature mahogany wood to which I won't mention but this guitar just has that right perfect pitch of voicing all around.


I highly recommend these guitars to anyone is looking for a great versatile guitar for recording or gigging or just needs a great instrument to keep in their collection. These are phenomenal sounding guitars but they do very from guitar to guitar. A lot of them are different weights and balances so they tend a very a lot between each other. So I suggest trying one out before buying if you get the chance to.

iamqman's review"Zebra and Black make a great attack"

Gibson Les Paul Traditional
The Gibson Les Paul is just a staple in rock n roll music. They have some a great look and sound that goes synonymous with music. These guitars feature to humbucker pick ups to control knobs for the town and to control knobs for the volume. It doesn't have a bunch of pushed pool switches or any other business to get in the way of the electronics. It's a basic electronics set up with its normal operation.

The tone of this guitar is phenomenal. If you use in a high gain setting it will be a perfect match for your rig. This is a pretty easy guitar to figure out and you just basically turn your tone control knobs all the way up and you turn your volume controls all the way up. These guitars match very well with the Marshall amplifier. It's like that you were made for each other even know they were built on different continents. They have a great chemistry and by far have the best sound in buying any guitar to any guitar amplifier. Again this is my opinion and I generally lean towards hard rock and metal tones so the mix between a Gibson Les Paul and Marshall amplifier is really right up my alley.


AT new you can find these guitars new for right around $1899 which is a great price for this great sounding guitar. I highly recommend this guitar to anyone who is looking for a professional guitar or wants a great guitar for recording or gigging purposes. This is a great instrument for the price and anyone who wants to get in a good Les Paul which has a much better feel than the Studio guitars then this is the right one.

Hatsubai's review"The new Standard"

Gibson Les Paul Traditional
Gibson has recently started chambering their Les Pauls within the past few years. This is different from the weight reliving they've been doing for the past 30 years now. In response to those who dislike the chambering, they made the Traditional. This guitar features a weight relieved (but not chambered) mahogany body with a maple top, mahogany set neck with 22 frets, a tune-o-matic bridge, two humbuckers, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.


These guitars seem to help bring Gibson back to the glory days that they were known for. The biggest improvement that these guitars have is that they're PLEK'd. For those that don't know, that means that the frets are leveled with a machine. This eliminates any potential human errors that could occur due to rushing or other concentration errors. The nuts are cut nicely, but there are still a few out there with improperly cut nuts that need to be lightly filed. The guitars have some good weight, and they're all fairly resonant.


These things sound pretty massive, just like a normal Les Paul should. The bridge has some nice bite, but it's pretty fat sounding overall. This gives a great classic hard rock and metal tone. However, I wish it would have more output and be a bit more clear. The neck pickup is fairly warm sounding, but it has some treble that I'm not entirely crazy about. My favorite pickup combo for these guitars is a JB/59 combo, so I'll probably swap that in when I get the time.


If you're looking for a Les Paul, I highly recommend trying these guitars out. For the price, they're about the best you can buy. The R series is better overall, but they're also quite a bit more money. If you can afford one, by all means. I just feel these are the best bang for your buck Gibsons out there.

Gibson Les Paul Traditional
Made in the States, TOM bridge and neck 59, a big stick Les Paul somehow I like. Originally, there was a set of Gibson humbuckers 57 and 57 + and the settings are those of a real Les Paul.
I had the opportunity to find a set Seymour Duncan Antiquity cheap. I installed it because I knew beforehand. That's better, I explain below.
It is not critical features of a Les Paul since buying an icon knowingly. If you do not find at least very good, why invest money.
This is roughly a Standard as in the years 80-90.


The handle is in my hand, so it is said. Although I have a lot of other guitars, this is what I prefer handle.
Since I bought it, is that its weight for me and also access to acute, even if not perfect. Again, buy a Les Paul is like buying a piece of electric guitar history. Either you know what to expect and what is a cleverly thought buying or ideas are not in place. One can easily get a good sound, especially with Seymour Duncan Antiquity and wiring 50's with whom there is no treble loss when the volume is lowered. This is a modification I made personally. I also replaced the condos CERAMICO-crappy original 47nF 22nF with oiled paper. With ceramics, you can never know if all the sound characteristics are returned.


Bin yes, a Les Paul should be what I wanted to do before you buy. I even knew that I would change the wiring.
The set 57-57 + is a return to the characteristics of PAF's. They are far from the best replica on the choice that the market offers. The particularity of Seymour Duncan Antiquity, unlike the best competition is to sound like PAF's that have 50 to 55 years. The sound is very soft, the bass is never muddy and never aggressive treble. They are well suited to jazz, blues and crunch is not suitable beyond the hard rock. Somehow, the original set is far from that.
Contrary to historical models, VOS and others, equipped with "PAF's" new, it sounds really vintage.


I have since 2009 and had a R9 in the past, I have great resell lutant against the crisis. Plus it was a purchase but a little rash resale and perfect condition, fortunately.
Today, I am luthier and constructed instruments for customers to order and I do not play much. Instruments of trade midrange second hand, as I improve, largely enough for me. Thus, this is a traditional exposure model that many would buy me the price of a new one, if not more. I had to € 1200 via a "specialist" Fashion Bazaars for which I make repairs from time to time. I do not know the quality of a new finish but I have to retouch varnish, however the fact that it was chosen as a demonstration instrument is a guarantee of successful instrument, although it is true not every time. ;-) I also tweaked some frets.
I always liked Gibson Les Paul and since my adolescence. I'm trying to override my principle: I build a guitar. A perfect replica of Les Paul and 59 for that matter, better and with mahogany and maple better. This one, I'll find perfect, of course.
