    Gibson Les Paul TraditionalPublished on 02/18/14 at 06:47
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    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.

    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.

    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.

    UTILIZATION

    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.

    SOUNDS

    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had two months and I do not regret my choice. Before buying, I was playing on a 50 gibson tribute gold top and the comparison is not subject to appeal, especially at the finish. The price is justified for an instrument of this quality.

    OVERALL OPINION

    What to say about this legend that has not already been said? It is one of the best Les Paul Gibson catalog? This is certain. It is a legendary guitar? No shadow of a doubt! It provides sounds sublime and varied? Of course!
    Everyone here knows the Les Paul. Traditional but offers more: it has remained traditional, in the spirit of Les Paul 57, 58 and 59. She has that authentic and timeless character that no longer has the video (also excellent), it retains all of its ancestors. Amazing how simple and yet with what results! Regardless of the outstanding guitar it is, the LP has never parted with its special aura. Play on is not simply the musqiue and get-immensely-fun, it's just enroll in an amazing story and not just music, it's really a part of history.

    My Traditional boasts a superb finish. I love his beautiful black livery, if class. Surprisingly, it shows 4.9 kg on the scales! Surprising for a guitar whose body has some light recesses. Or 600 grams more than my LP Reissue CS 57. More importantly, 750 grams more than my other Traditional! And I can assure you that my two Trad does not sound the same. This Ebony gives pride to the creamy tone (normal for a LP? Not necessarily at this point), she proves infinitely generous lower midrange while maintaining a good balance without ever losing its precision, its distinction. I'm talking about the distinction that each note has, always perfectly detached from each other even in the most complex and rich arrangements.
    Sustain, therefore, maintains a held note untied. I want to say is that the note sounds, of course, but with a long rich timbre, harmonic, with a brief always clear and full of panache musicality. You can follow its movement without any effort as it is here the obvious.
    The Les Paul guitar is the one I happen to play just for the sake of sound, the pleasure of making sound to hear every note taking shape, spread and turn gently.
    This love story began 32 years ago. It is however contradicted when after a prolonged shutdown, I'm not back to her immediately. And then came the moment when I realized that I was not happy with my Stratocaster and it is only then that I rediscovered with more passion.
    Today I have 3 Les Paul and one Strat (the 5 I owned) remaining 99% of the time in the beautiful Tweed suitcase. So it is! I've always been the man of a single woman ...

    You can also highlight the hoops by setting PLEK (mechanical process, which automatically sets the veneer frets over a handle), it is supposed to bring perfect intonation of the instrument over the long term, provided that the wood is stable.

    UTILIZATION

    At the grip, its was a little confusing to me, the handle is Type 50's, so big enough, or even a log, not obvious at first, but we made it. Amateur Ibanez handle, go your way! That said the frets are filed, the action of the guitar is good, neither too high nor too low.
    The ergonomics of a Les Paul is known, its still a bit heavy in spite of "relief", but its not lean to one side or another. The access to the treble is not impossible, but not as obvious as a flying V.
    Knobs, that is what volume or tone are very progressive, by moving it from 10 to 0, with all the differences, which gives very valuable nuances of sound that leans slightly to above.

    SOUNDS

    For sound, we can not say that it is versatile, this guitar SA personality, but also versatility.
    I plugged into two amps, a Boogie Transatlantic for a little more vintage sounds and a Triple recto to sound a little more edgy.
    With a clear, she is doing very well, the sound is round, well balanced, with highs just slamming and low mids and bass a bit forward. It is confirmed when one passes a microphone to another. The output level is relatively high cruncher can quickly make sound clear.
    Into overdrive this is where the beautiful (or as stupid as you want) wakes up. The 57 full rack teeth bites, growls while his full, no sound nasal or runny, the sound is well defined. Side handle is velvety, warm, round, tapping one has the impression that the sound of running itself. The sustain is confirmed as and as the gain increases. Depending on the amp to one side a little bit vintage but modern at the same time, say that a little grain of vintage, and the power of a more modern sound.
    Going further into distortion, it pushes the doors of hard rock, it falls two feet in guns, black sabbath ... The sound keeps his grain overdrive, and remains well defined even with a high gain, natural harmonics out very easily, palm mutes are detonating. Brief happiness!
    On a more metalheads, mediums are too far to stick to the Trivium and Machine Head, but his stick perfectly to the first albums Hoursemen Fours.
    The guitar is very responsive to what the right hand is a good thing, its dynamics, as well as the amp (when you crush it under a ton of compression) allows a total expression. The middle postion is interesting, especially when you turn down the volume and tone of either micro, with a little overdrive it gets its punchy and not gaudy.
    Compared to other Les Paul I could try this, in the most balanced sound I heard, others were too dull, too fat, too empty (as if there had a hole in the guitar), too dry (like mahogany was replaced by lime was compressed) ... Apart from a secondhand (a reissue of 59 dating back to 1995) I have not heard that made me much pleasure, its still a matter of taste.
    My style varies quite, I play blues, rock, hard rock, and Rage against the machine, in all cases, even with an amp, adjusting the gain and play with the knobs of the guitar , I can cover all. It is magical.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Its going to be three years since I played with since I'm hand, every time I say the same thing: it sounds terrible, I too vein to be stumbled upon.
    Because at this topic, I have tried at the same time the standart 2008. Four in total, three different stores, and all on the same amp. Neither sounded like a had no sustain (my PRS SE at the time had more), another had no presence in the bass and lower midrange, ... in a store, I try two (too different from each other). The seller told me himself that none sounded like, Gibson can not guarantee a constant quality, so for shopping on the net is a little haphazard, so advise n ' bought a Gibson if you try and no matter if you prefer a different color!
    What I hate about this guitar is holding agreement, the mechanisms are rotten, for this price I am disappointed, Fender did much better on models twice cheaper. The lack of Straplock again for that price, I think it is a minimum. The varnish cracks after three years already on the edge of the binding, I knew she grow old but not as fast. Poor welding on the bridge pickup which occasionnais a false contact, I repeat myself but for the price we did not expect this kind of failure.
    But most are small microphones (I thought may be changed) rééllements enormous, and especially especially a touch of madness. The box, simple but elegant. And especially the quality of the violin, the grain of the wood that we see beneath the veneer back end, the quality of rosewood, as well as the table.
    In short, many positive things about this guitar which gives it a very special and its so nice to me. The negatives relate only to "access" the grattte, but at this rate I think Gibson could make an effort.
    A remake this choice I would do without hesitation that no other scratches since I esszyer pleases me as much as this one, other skyscrapers are good, even very good (maybe better), but this is sound I was looking for and I love today.
    I think when you buy a Gibson Les Paul, you can buy a good scratching, but also pays part of the name. A 200-300 euros less than the Les Paul would have been more consistent, but when you fall in love ...

    The body is not too hollow and I prefer the rendering which is similar to standard LP until 2008 that I could get my hands.

    I can put 10 on this point is not that In the holy grail but to render in this price range. This is my second LP the first being a custom shop 58 and get the same without rendering the latter, the sound is good, or even very good. Choillat a more modern and less creamy but nothing that is not pleasant plain as saturated.
    Please note as stated above I try a lot and made equal in model is not necessarily the same.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Good shovel. No gimmick, just an LP that is not a cheese, an LP with microphones singing. In short I prefer the standard 2005 and especially now, however, more expensive catalog.

    SOUNDS

    Are they adequate for your style of music?
    - I play mostly Hard Rock and Metal and it performs superbly in all styles if you know a bit know how to set an amp!

    What types of sounds you get and with what settings?
    - Although fat and mushy on the neck pickup and bridge pickup on vintage

    With what (s) amp (s) or effect (s) do you play?
    - Line6 Spider Valve MkII all lamps

    What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
    - I love the neck pickup in the clear as saturated, it's the sound of a Les Paul, among many other recognizable, often copied, never equaled!
    The bridge pickup is a bit limited for the metal, it is not his strong point, it is perfect for the small distortion or crunch. In his clear, it was just OK, while we prefer the middle position.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long you use it? Did you tried many other models before buying it?
    - I have played on quite a Les Paul for 20 years (at least fifty), the early '70s to 2011 (I have not tested the Standard 2012).
    My preference has always focused on models of the early 90s, both the Studio, Standard, Classic or Custom.
    Well this wine I was particularly impressed and reminded of the famous LP Standard for 90 years
    The guitar has a mahogany body full swiss cheese (9 holes), a handle 50 'rounded, a Rosewood fingerboard, (which is becoming increasingly rare Gibson), a maple top, Alnico 2 in a microwave handle, and the small difference comes from the bridge pickup was an Alnico 5 and Alnico 2 now, or the lack of fishing, otherwise it's just a standard of 90 years!
    Besides, I have absolutely not understand why Gibson was named TRADITIONAL while it is in fact a pure STANDARD in its construction!

    What is so special that you love the most, least?
    - Finally I reconcile myself with the recent Les Paul!! and it's not for lack of trying!!

    How would you rate the quality / price?
    - This is where I can not believe: she sells an average of 1700-1800 € new! While the so-called "Standard" today, which really is not one, sells for € 2,200 and is completely empty!!
    Skip top friends, it probably does not last, not to mention what did the euro, which breaks the mouth and the Dollar climbing in no time they will be a € 2500

    With experience, you do again this choice?
    - Without hesitating a second, I had become allergic to the 2000s, it took a decade for Gibson stopped selling us crap, it's not too early!

    SOUNDS


    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.


    OVERALL OPINION


    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.

    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.

    SOUNDS


    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

    CHAC is to treble in all .... ease up the box o the 18me must have big hands and be contortionist (hands was enough ^ ^)
    Regarding weight, I am very happy to have a good strap because it's heavy (and they are not as empty as the Standard 08 '!). Tip: invest in straplocks to avoid an unfortunate fall.

    SOUNDS

    I play mostly hard rock style Led Zeppelin, Guns N'Roses ... and this guitar is perfect for a!
    This gives her a fat, round, Gibsonnien!
    Sustain standard thanks to the handle 50 '
    She excels in crunch and distortion.
    The light is not strong point but it is well dbrouille trs.
    It can affect all styles: Jazz, Blues, Rock, Hard ...

    I have now a HK transistors works well with the trs Gibson (even if it will be replaced by a marshall all lamps)

    The sound is really Gnial, Wonderful, words fail me.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had little time.

    The least of this guitar might be Access in acute becomes difficult to del 18me box.

    Pros: The sound, finish ... everything is wholesale!

    Cot qualitprix report, it's expensive but it is on an excellent instrument.
