Gibson les paul special faded reissue 2009
So it's a Gibson Les Paul Special Faded Limited Run 2009. Produced in Nashville.

Mahogany body, set neck Mahogany 22 frets rosewood fingerboard, tune 24'75 profile "60 Slim Taper.

Bridge Tun-O-Matic and stop bar, mechanical tulips stamped "Gibson Deluxe".

For these are two P90 pickups Gibson, with the usual knobs: 2 tone 2 volume and a 3 position switch.

Faded finish, personally I love both a aesthetic point of view at the touch, matter color mine is worn cherry, superb.

10, quality guitar, the finish will surely not please everyone but it is successful, no flaws in my opinion.


Access to acute is not terrible ... Major weakness.

The lady is not particularly light, but it's still very tolerable.

The neck pickup is much stronger than his fellow bridge, and that whatever the distance from the strings. It is adjusted by varying the volume, but it is rather surprising because the difference is really important.

6, access to acute is undeniably a black dot.


This is generally the ideal guitar for blues, reggae, punk, rock, rough around the edges. In clear sound, the neck pickup a lot its hot and deep, which allows you to go occasionally tease jazz. The intermediate position makes the game very well in hand, playing on the volumes we can move from acoustic sounds pretty things more chattering. The bridge pickup is drier / aggressive without being cartoonish, perfect for reggae or rock 60's (it is still far from a Telecaster for example).

The crunch sounds are probably the specialty of this guitar ... Very expressive, ideal for punk, you can also pass through sounds typed White Stripes easel or frankly bold way for the Black Keys blues set, a real treat.

I'm generally not fond of big distos. Here it works well for sounds vintage or downright dirty directed to Neil Young but do not expect to find a modern distortion. The bridge pickup lacks a bit of edge to my taste.

Personally, I play with a bit of everything: jazz, rock asked, reggae, "latineries" (play a Chan Chan electric version on this guitar is pure pop bliss ...),. She accepts that I use many effects: delay, chorus and tremolo can address the register pop-modern rock (Bloc Party, Editors ...), while keeping the specifics of the guitar (Tele less sharp than that are found everywhere). I think I put the slide, with a good crunch it must be more than pleasant ... The big plus is the fact its very airy, very open clean / crunch, what I was looking first and foremost, while being more consistent than Fender. I found almost the central position of my late '56 Danelectro (two lipsticks in series): thicker than a conventional single coil but still large and clear, a sound that breathes.

9 because nothing is perfect and the pickups buzzing at high gain.


I've had two months. It's been a while since I was looking for a good first guitar I tried a lot of other models (St. Blues, Airline, Fender, Danelectro, Tokai ...), and then finally fell in love with it . The Airline Tuxedo was too large and I liked less than aesthetically (had to settle somewhere for her she also sent) and the St. Blues 61 South was too expensive, hence the choice.

820 euros in stores is not given for a basic finish anyway, for this price could be better than the gig-bag that provides enough crappy Gibson. It pays no doubt partly myth, but I have yet to discover defects which I did not realize at the time of purchase (besides the story of difference in volume between the pickups), so I will not going to complain.

With the experience I would do without doubt that choice, unless dropped onto a St. Blues OCCAZ in the same price area ... And then a Bigsby would have tried as well.

7, the ratio Q / P is not optimal.
