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.
