They have taking a classic American guitar and compounded upon its glory. This is a guitar that has the look and the feel of a classic instrument. If you have ever played a Gibson Les Paul or just picked one up at a local shop or store you have felt a sturdy piece of wood. This guitar has a classic honey burst paint coat on the top and added into it the nice fingered maple top. This is just one gorgeous looking guitar.

SOUNDS

What I like about these guitars is that they are not chambered like many of the last few guitars from previous years have been from Gibson. I hate the sound of the chambered Les Paul's and I am starting to wonder if Gibson had gotten enough flack from people not liking the sound of the new Les Paul's and they have change the build process to these weight relived mahogany bodies. They keep the tone and girth intact with this build process rather than the light tone of the chambered guitars. They still make the chambered but I believe it is only the studio and classic Es pals and not the standards and heritage series guitars.

What I love about the Gibson Les Paul is the ability to play in almost any type of music. Much like the Fender Stratocaster these guitars are able to jump around from genre to genre and still be able to perform quite well under different flavors of music. They have the ability to stay true to their tone but the great versatility to branch out past the original music that they were made for back in the 50's and 60's. They have continued through time and much of the music has changed but very little to these guitars.

OVERALL OPINION

These are absolutely wonderful guitars. The are not cheap but not that bad of a price for what you get. At new these guitars come in right at around $2300. Not a bad price for a quality sounding and built guitar. Some of these guitars can be hit or miss so I would try one out to see if you like the feel first before buying. $2300 is a lot of money to throw down on a guitar that you just don't jive with.
