Linn Sondek's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Just perfect"

Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Premium
Manufacturing USA, of course! Channel '50 guy. 22 frets. Duo pickups '57 Classic and Classic 57 'More. Two volumes and two tones.
Mahogany body and not rosewood as I have read in a review right here, mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, maple table: in short, a Les Paul!
Mine is color Honey Burst, absolutely sublime.

UTILIZATION

The handle of '50 type is assumed the bulk of the Gibson catalog. Certainly bigger than the Slim Taper '60s, he did not act either a log! I particularly appreciate. The weight of my model totaled 4kg2, but therefore very light compared to my other 4kg9 LP Traditional ebony!
I get a good sound? I want!!

SOUNDS

This guitar is suitable for all styles of music. I do not see what we could not play with LP!
Everything is perfect here: all sounds are at your fingertips in the extent that it is understood that volume settings AND tone used to something.
This queen is ringing on any amp and I know she is able to remain as good even on a transistor amplifier. I remember my LP Custom on an amp Lab L5 or L7 (that I'm so sure!) And it sounded! Well, the Lab were not any transistor amp ...
This differs from my other Traditional Trad in that it offers an aerial sound where Ebony is definitely my "earth". I want to say is that both offer course the sound characteristics you would expect from a Les Paul but that such position, in a way, their voices at different "heights". The Ebony ramp, dull and heavy fleet when Honey, ethereal and light.

OVERALL OPINION

Yes, I've tried guitars and I have owned! The Les Paul is my first love and is again today, my favorite guitar, the one I am perfectly at ease, one with which I am in total harmony. I play better on LP than on any other guitar. I get the desired sound only on a Les Paul. I know exactly how she reacts, how it responds to changes in its tone controls and volume, how it behaves in the attacker closer to the bridge or the neck. In short, I know.
The quality / price is very good. The perfect finish, the quality of wood used, electronics and microphones fully justify its price.

Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Premium
Made in the USA, the characteristics are that of a Les Paul as understood.
Body rosewood, maple Flamée table, bending over the table and the handle, handle type 50 '(big but not that much, very pleasant to take in hand). The handle is perfectly tuned through technology Plek. The real plus is that the microphones and classic 57 classic 57 +, who are excellent pickups.
High quality fittings. Mine has no manufacturing defect, it smells quality full nose. A thick layer of varnish that protects the beauty. It's beautiful, it shines, it is a Gibson.
The color of mine is Desert Burst.

UTILIZATION

Grip very nice and very intuitive, I must say that I was already playing on guitars with this type of handle (and I have big hands). Ergonomics is that of a Les Paul, the weight also. But we must relativize the weight it does not weigh 30kg. it is quite bearable, and then a little muscle does not hurt. After 3 hours of rehearsals I am not more tired than when I played with my Lag Roxanne.
The access to the treble is not very easy, but you have to put things in their place, it is not a guitar shredder crazy.
on the other hand, it gives pleasure to play with, forget the little "inconveniences" associated with Les Paul in general.

SOUNDS

This is where the myth is revealed. I play in rehearsal and on stage with a Peavey Classic 30 all tube transplanted into a PA system. I play pop-rock, blues, punk or see the hard (some ACDC, it's not bad, quite the contrary). In his clear, it's hot, look no Cristalin sound, it is not made for it. on the other hand it is great for everything rhythmic accompaniment, even arpeggios sound very well. Personally I do not expect that, given everything they say about Gibson is still a very versatile guitar.
That said, as soon as we talk about the lamps in the crunch, we see dessuite it falls within his chosen field. With a little adjustment between the pickups and the amp you get a crunch have very clear and beautiful.
As soon as you loose the beast to pieces more fat, again this is pure happiness, it sends downright heavy, that sound is dirty so far, the sound is always very well defined. We feel that it is made for it. Foot! This is a Les Paul in all his splendor! I did not even mention the sustain of this guitar, it seems it would never stop ringing ...

OVERALL OPINION

I month, I had lots of other guitar models, which are between 500 and 1000 euros (or more), but now with this guitar, it really fits in a particular world. There are actually a Gibson sound and a particular pleasure to play with.
Other models I've tried that do come close. I love my other guitars between my other Chez Lag Roxanne (500 series) but is still below (this parrait normal, because it is a mid-range).
Gibson is often a dream of owning a guitarist in one day. I've waited 42 years for it, now I'm filled with this instrument really upscale teases with perfection. No wonder so many artists perform on The Paul ...
Before getting one, I was always a good reason not to yield to the temptation, saying it was too expensive, and that both y'avait for less than 1000 euros. Today, I forget the amount of my purchase, I really think it's worth, this is the price for access to a quality instrument but also the legend ...

trevellin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" ultimate guitar!"

Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Premium
it's a good old US made in that we have here ..
fixed bridge course.
neck with 22 fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl trapezoid marks true all set a net around it. (not around the head)
the pickups are '57 and '57 classic classic plus for the handle.
for the settings is simple: one 3 position switch and a volume knob and one tone for each pickup (which makes four control buttons in all).

UTILIZATION

the handle is very nice, it's very enjoyable, such handle exists only in dreams!
of comfort to fall backwards, it really plays all styles ...
the ergonomics are excellent, although the guitar propped on his thigh.
access to acute is good, I have no complaints in that area ...
we get a great sound!
then there hat!
was "the sound of jazz" yes, that famous as its incomparable can be heard on the gibson, warm, full of psychics, a unique relief ...
for the blues, it's really a guitar here, just mount the drive of the amp and forget the strato! (What breadboard!)
well saturated for rock hard rock show, it's really good!
I say: this is the ultimate and unique guitar rock!

SOUNDS

it is well suited to all styles of music pre-cited above, for the funk, a better strato is done here!
I plugged into a tube amp brand "ELYPSE", it is the amps sold milonga, with 3 buttons on it and it does not cheat with her, frankly, I was in heaven!
a guitar that has all qualities that sound here, y 'is not much!
I loved everything in terms of sounds on this guitar!

OVERALL OPINION

I have only played this afternoon, but I'm really conquered; I nearly buy it so I found it good!
for guitars I tried, see my secretary! (Ah ah!)
I love the most, it remains in the les paul traditional sound to fall, a comfortable game to ejaculate on the spot, the blues just by itself, the weapon of jazz, this guitar can do anything, the flamed maple top on the model tested, the sound of microphones, the beauty and simplicity of this guitar that laid the foundations of rock and hard rock.
I did not like, only 22 cases (which I'm used to 24!), the net handle that a little "cheap" to have to make!
I took the opportunity to compare it with a Les Paul Standard 2008 and several findings make me say that I prefer the traditionnal: first, the standard is less burdensome than the traditionnal in fact, This is because Gibson had the super bad idea to dig the body mahogany les paul to put in the balsa; result, it really is lighter, but what you gain somewhere, you lose it necessarily elsewhere I found the sound much less "jazz" the traditionnal perhaps the fault of burstbuckers mounted on the standards of today ...
and then, € 200 more for the standard, I think it looks a little expensive balsa!
anyway, gibson tripper makes me right now, and I try everything I can in this brand I already had a 335, a les paul studio, an SG standard, a nighthawk, I have never been disappointed and rightly so, I always feel like a very good instrument in the hands, so we say thank you to that? paul to the course!
