Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro '50s
Paul Trad Pro made in Nashville, etc etc ...

my 5th and my les paul gibson 8th.
but this is the right one. I had a standard 90's, a more trad DB, a studio of 97 Gem, a tribute HB 50's gold top ..
it is a really good LP, swiss cheesed.
split the microphone is a big upgrade that I had never tested, and it was a revelation!

UTILIZATION

I put 10 because for me it is the ideal skyscraper.

a good old 50's neck, a beautiful honey color burst, a plain table top super class.
the handle is terrible if you like that kind of run so good, we must try.
each access to acute is that of an LP, try again.
scratches very well addressed, as she had already spent three months and was in the hands of a prior owners, hard to judge whether the factory settings were good.

SOUNDS

I do not because I think with 10 microphones shop it would sound even better, but hard to find good microphones and split to avoid losing the specificity of the very pleasant trad pro.

the microphone is serious bluesy a wish, the fever is hot microphone without being aggressive. a good compromise. the mix of two and very honky.
Once the microphones splitter, there are new sounds previously unknown on the LP and it's huge. ok it was not a fender in hand, May we can make the funky Chic casseroles without problem. the mixture Neck split / non-acute split is great, very 70's American rock.

I played on a Black BH15 heart and I get easily the typical Led Zep / AC / DC, Black Crowes, ZZ Top etc ...

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a week and I won. the first skyscraper in which I want to grow old.
has noted that the finish is very good and very fine varnish, even on the table is polished (unlike the rest of the body).
Once back, sides and handle poilishé, we are left with a feeling of Rx (go between the handle and R8 to the table, and an R9 for style)
to the difference of more trad, you feel the wood, it resonates and is not deafened by 2mm hard ground.
Once polished, the back is really like CS dune smooth but old school.

UTILIZATION

namely the guitar's back and front satin lacquered AC gives him a super style and super nice to the touch

thus the neck is really nice to take in hand, it is therefore quite large rounded '50, we like it or not, is not a highway made in Ibanez, but that's what I love, I prs had one before with slim neck, I was uncomfortable to play, I like having a big club in the hands (!) but I also have big hands so this helps.

overall ergonomics is equal to itself, considering it's a Lespaul, heavy access on acute, thick handle, but what good is ca.
In comparison. a race in Monte Carlo seems to me more interesting than a NASCAR race .. image is special but it's the idea.

In terms of sound, bah mahogany body, maple top, BB3 and 57 classic, clearly we have a gibson hands, and I admit to needing more triturated to change my amp sound, everything is feasible guitar thanks to all palates of sounds that we can have.

It is indeed a lespaul, bold and sweet at will, while having the opportunity to slam through the swinging again, with knobs very effective.

SOUNDS

I play the muse, jack white and whatnot, it is suitable for virtually all through microphones are split, its microphones and its excellent setting, you can almost do everything with style and more.

Despite the wide range of possibility, it is difficult to obtain the metalheads or strato / TV, overall it is rather bold and the sound is sometimes a bit rambling but if I say it is mainly micro rather Typed oldschool, but overall it's still a FAT LesPaul as they like.

Being more of a jirouète, I can quickly change the type of sound and the FA will allow me.

attention that being said, like any self-respecting single coil, in this mode of microphones, there's some noise if too close or too many electronic devices and magnetic in the corner.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a good week, but happiness super fun to play.
And there 's more write gibson top of the head: 3 (we rebuild it)

I try and buy a whole lot of scratching and all sorts of price ranges, and that is just the one that pleased me most of all, there 's that may be better in this world, may be a luthier, but clearly this is a good guitar

what I like most is the general class of device, the sound recess
what I like least is the Gibson which costs about 20% of the price, but should you need when you want a gibson.


The value for money is honorable, but equal to Gibson himself is too expensive for what it is.
For value for money, more intra-gibsonnien, I think it is very very good.

I would do this choice because obviously if I bought it was that I wanted her and not another. It is a beautiful and good guitar, not too expensive, that's what we asked.
