« Zebra and Black make a great attack »

Published on 10/10/11 at 22:02
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.
