Fabreeg's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" An excellent standard!"
Super nice inning play, fast and well rounded. Intermediate weight between my bfg and non chambered Paul. The form does not allow easy access to acute, but still takes the habit over time.
Simply plug this beast on a good tube amp and play: plug n play, no need to spend hours tinkering with anything. We live the sound of a good standard we expected.
The sound is impressive, with a vicious and sustain the typical grain has a les paul, a warm and fat sound. I think its clear that micro humbucker has fared more honorably, it is clear, pure, and you can hear the notes distinctly even in passing a more crunchy gain. The sounds are a bluesy wish.
Distortion is in ecstasy, a wicked hard rock out of the amp with the ability to play everything, even the doors of the pure metal, because in this particular other ca registry are much better. Yet the palm mute on agreements basic power still put a good slap in the face.
I use it for a week, and I let her go. I had the chance to find a new opportunity in a passionate state that took care of, and a great price. 2300 euro paid by the new owner but sold in 1100 because of the opa has made the time to finish Gibson stocks in 2007 (it had been lowered significantly) Cool for me but not nice for those who have paid a high price ....
Me after that I do not see that the department YOUR custom to go higher, as you will understand, I swear by Les Paul. I waited for 36 rods and I have dreamed about since adolescence.
In short if you want a real paul standard and like me the roots side of the instrument does not bother you, well you put her research, you will be filled.

dadainparis's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" very good scratch on a budget"
2009 (chambered) Color Honey Burst
The handle is very nice but a little déroutant.En effect the appearance slightly rougher finish because it takes some getting used. After that slide very well .
Side weight, mine is chambered so slightly from the Les Paul. For access to acute Gibson is so if you put the guitar below the belt as Slash, is a bit harder to access . For audio, you must try it already and there is no amp pleasant surprise: It sounds very good, very resonant.
When I purchased the guitar, it had the original pickups (Burstbucker Pro). It sounded good in clean although a little crunchy, but with distortion, with a bit of distortion it quickly becomes a mess. In short the microphones do not value quality acoustic guitar. So I replaced it all and set up a Jimmy Page wiring (that's what I get on all my LP). Here it sounds very good. My group was unanimous: all guitars that I brought (Gibson, PRS, Ibanez Custom Shop) bah this is the one that sounds the best So I know I can be lucky but c It's true it sounds.
So to the sounds (after modification)
Sounds clear sound with its warm crystalline LP
Overdrive: Sounds very good good medium
Boost: beautiful bump in the medium
Out of phase: one of the finest I've heard out of phase
I play country, rock, jazz in the group and the scratching is a real Swiss Army knife (even country). After in hard metal and it provides too
I scratched the last three weeks. I was looking for a cheap LP with a nice look and sound that bring tears to be able to live without fear of me being shot or to take bread. Mission accomplished.
So for the models I tried (several LP standard, traditionnal Plus, PRS Custom 513 E. Santana strata of Ibanez) I find it a good scratch (good gameplay, its very dynamic).
What I like most about the scratch (after modification) is its Polyval LP with the character. What I like least is the mechanical (when pete rope in concert and they brought no scratches in it is better to backup the mechanical locking).

kenshiro974's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Fingerboard: Rosewood, 22 frets
Mahogany body and neck, flame AA Saddle Table
3 position selector, 1 volume and 1 Tone by microphones
mics pro Burstbucker
I availing oneself of the Release 50, the handle is a bit hefty, so accustomed to the sleeves flat and fast (Ibanez RG 2500Z and Schecter c1) that they asked me Lger adaptation time, but done there and there's something for the end.
CASC to acute demand also an adjustment period but nothing mchant!
My les paul from 2005, his body is full (as opposed to the new LP that the body dug on all sides, making them more lgres) mine PSE more than 4 kg but I knew all fawns, when you want the LP sound, it must make concessions anyway lol its not me Drange not, for once, I feel like playing a real guitar, not a Ultra light piece of board!
Oh the sound! its been 10 years since I rvais this guitar, upon which I plug in the sound I liked right away is the sound I like, big and bold, full of Bass, I love it! that sound perfectly matches my style of music up, rather blues / hard rock (Led Zeppelin, Guns, acdc etc.)
I tried a MARSHALL JCM 800 and its ptait well, now I plug it into a Diezel Einstein, and his dcoiffe, both in saturated, however, clear that I must play on the knobs of Tone and volume, otherwise the sound becomes too powerful, and much feedback, this is the output level of Burstbucker powerful enough.
What m'tonne on this guitar, the sound is clear, that I find absolutely amazing, frankly, I love this fucking clear sound, full bass, singing and very balanced.
Good impression on the 3 positions, all usable in its saturated in clear I prefer the neck position and the intermediate-position, I rarely use the bridge pickup in the clear, though the sound is not so bad, but the other 2 positions are so gniales I do not need to look any further!
to lead full, the bridge pickup is excellent, the harmonics out themselves, it's heaven!
I use it recently, I have not yet toured the possibilities of the craft is the type of instrument to be learned tame, a skyscraper that class, beautiful and full of personality.
What I like most is its sound, its look is my first Les Paul, it's like a kid who Ralis his dream, his priceless !
Before buying mine, I test a std of 95 who rang the fire god, mine sounds DIFFERENT, but the grain and the les paul, plus I love the color!
For the price quality ratio, I pay 1100 euros in mine OCCAZ is a very good price, plus it is almost new!
Exprience with this choice I would do without hesitating, besides tt or later, I am another chopper paul, its for sure!

Fred7582's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
The handle is a vritable highway (I like the sleeves a little particulirement round), Access in acute is more than adequate, the guitar is more equilibrated than lgre Gibson's last century (my guitar was bought in 2007 and Canada). It's simple, you plug the amp into a bte (lamps preferences) and the optient SSSSSSOOOOONNNNNN killing !!!!!!!!!!......... ...... a classic guitar N'ROLL ROCK !!!!!
It sounds good trs trs Rock (Les Paul is a first ).... but hey the Blues and Jazz are Frontire!! I play on my amp but diffrent config scne: Carvin XV-112 Amp + pedalboard house (Boss, MXR, Marshall ...) all with the Les Paul and I really m'clate!
I play for a few months! this is my favorite guitar by far (I have also a tlcaster, a stratum, an SG and others LP (a standard Ebony )).... The ratio quality price is good .... trs trs but it must be purchased abroad (United States or Canada). In France the guitars are too US CHRE !!!!!! Because: VAT tax Douanire + + margin + Transport + importer margin music store = TOO EXPENSIVE !!!!!...............
Well for me it is THE GUITAR and I do it again this choice without Sitat!!

evastian's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Channel Extremely enjoyable!
the pleasure of playing is incredible, it is taken in hand and you can feel the beast is tame little by little.
CHAC in acute complicated somewhat when playing standing up .. This has not told me not shocked at all contrary to everything I've read on!
The weight is not as troublesome either! 2 hours of play that is standing by jumping into all the corners, you begin to feel a little pain in the shoulder, but nothing embarrassing!
For his ... Incredible! we are surprised of the first second.
I am playing mostly rock, hard rock, metal from time to time, even quieter stuff and this guitar is definitely perfect!
I associate it with a fender amp and the sound is awesome '!
The are are huge!
the neck pickup in a saturated attack it! good rock, hard rock! the microphone algorithm is really nice, round! for solos as Brian May, the foot!
sound clear him algorithm is EXCELLENT! a great atmosphere!
in treble, the sound is a little dry ... but it is not for a, and this is no problem!
I use it for 4 months and for the world I would change!
it's a beautiful guitar, beautiful, and perfect!
the culmination of a guitarist! "She Will Be mine, oh yeah she will!" that being said, seeing her!
Of course, the guitar is quite expensive! 3000 ... But there are ways to find it cheaper if we look good!
not any after touching a guitar like this, the other no longer exist!
this choice I would do without hesitation!
