Totally ok if you prefer the chambered sound. Just not my cup of tea. Grew up listening to a lot of non weight relieved Les Pauls and how beefy they sounded so I guess that tone is what’s stuck in my head lol
I was just about to pull the trigger for a new LP Custom when I read in the description that it had “Strategically Placed Chambers”. That made me pause...I didn’t know that LP Customs were chambered rather than being solid or 9 hole weight relieved.
When and why did this start? Chambered...
I take really good care of all of my guitars so I wouldn’t call any of them full on beaters. Actually just sold 5 guitars to help fund a new Custom Shop. One of them was what I refer to as a beater for me...an Epiphone Twisted Sister Les Paul. So I’ve been using my 2008 Charvel So-Cal with...
I’m very careful with my gear because I want to be and because I may sell it at some point. And a lot of us don’t need to get loaded or drink at all as part of our playing music or shows.
My #1 is my beloved 2003 Gibson Les Paul Standard who has been used at many gigs including the Fillmore SF...
That’s a nice looking guitar. Too much red for me as I like a plainer tobacco top but no denying that it’s a beauty. And I’m for any guitar that inspires a player to get their Ace on as that’s who inspired me to play. Congratulations and enjoy! :applause:
Mine was cut too low on my first Gibson LP Standard so I replaced it with a bone one. I’ve also had to do the same with other Les Pauls I’ve owned since then.
I’ve always just considerd the additional $$ to have a good nut installed to be part of the price of admission to own such a great guitar.
Been looking at both the Gibson Les Paul Custom and the Les Paul Axcess in Ebony.
I was going to buy the Les Paul Custom in Ebony until I saw that they now make an Axcess in the same color. I never considered getting an Axcess before because I didn’t like the previous colors.
While I like the...
I have a couple of Epiphone’s that I use in my ‘80’s band when we play in shadier clubs. I play my Gibson Les Paul Standard or even my R9 when we play at better clubs.
Do you see what I did here? :dude:
I love my Studio Classic. When I’ve used it at gigs with my Friedman Overdrive pedal it easily gets me into metal territory. If I need to clean it up I just roll back the volume knob. Real men only need one channel ;)
I’ve bought a lot of signature models through the years. Some as investments, some because I like the artist, the look or the specs or as a combination of any of the above.
I don’t understand the snobbery some people have for them. Every one I’ve acquired ( with a couple of exceptions) have...
