I just got an e-mail from Sam Ash advertising Gibson LP Traditionals at between $1399 and $1599.
When you go to their site, they're listed as "closeout" on the "options" tab.
Did Gibson discontinue these?

I just found this video of some nice jazzy clean playing on a '80s Les Paul.
I like the sound and it made me think why don't many play Les Paul's clean more often?

If you've got videos of you or others getting some nice clean tones out...
I'll admit that I've never been a huge Strat fan.
I played pretty much only a LP for over 10 years and even though I would try out Strats here and there they always seemed kind of sterile and thin to me compared to a LP.
A few years back though I found an Olympic White '09 Am St that had a...
I've been seriously thinking about a P-90 Les Paul Goldtop recently.
You know, something to complement my humbuckered LPs, something a little different but still with some thickness that can dirty-up nicely but still get sparkling cleans.
Plus I'm really getting into the idea of a 'goldtop'...

I just came across this video of a guitarist from Japan soloing with his late '50s 'burst.
I think it's GREAT but I'm curious if others agree or if they think this guy is torturing a poor defenseless guitar :laugh2:

Does anyone have any info on this Les Paul?
I saw a video today of Waddy Wachtel playing this guitar with Stevie Nicks and I could clearly see the 'pancake' seam on certain close-ups. And it obviously looks like a refin.
Does anyone have any more info on the LP?
BTW: The guitar sounded...
Ok so now that we have all sorts of model-based love threads how about one for that Les Paul that got caught between the old and the new and was only in production for a short time - the 2007 (or more accurately the late '06 to early '08) Les Paul Standard.
Similar in most respects to the Les...
In addition to Slash there were a lot of other guitarists keeping the Les Paul in front of all those MTV viewers.
I can think of a few off the top of my head...
...but I know I remember seeing a lot of other Pauls back in the day.
Who can think...
EDIT: The Thread should have been titled "2007 thru a Pod 2.0"
Just found this on YouTube -

I play my LPs direct into my Pod as well and I love it but I thought I was the only one as there seem to be a lot of Pod-bashers out there...
I LOOOOVVVE this Les Paul sound -

To me it sounds like a very '80s sound. Do most people consider this a 'modern' sound for a Les Paul or is this a 'vintage' sound?
Either way, for me it's THE SOUND!
