All Wraptail geetars are welcome, new, used, vintage, aged, yes even not gibsons ;) Post them. And let us know why you like them.

I do like and prefer wraptails first because of the imo better tone. Imo they have better sustain, better attack, better response, they are tonal more versatile, when picking closer to the wraptail or closer to the freatboard the tone changes dramatically etc. Also it is more comforteble to play on wraptails because you can rest your hand on the big smooth wraptail/stud. Palm muting works also better.

:cheers2:

Wraptails are my favorite as well. They just have a snappiness to them that I don't quite get with a TOM or other setup, although the others have their place as well. Here's my current lineup...

1954 Les Paul

1957 LP Special

Honorable mention to my 1964 and 1965 SG Juniors, which in addition to not being Les Pauls, are also not technically wraptails, but I keep them strung that way.

Also have a 1964 Epiphone Coronet.

Almost forgot my 1956 LP Junior that I haven't seen in almost three years. It will be Sunburst when I get it back.

snappiness is a keyword i forgot to mention. they have also a twang to them when picking close to the wraptail.

I have been looking at a 2015 double-cut special LP, but I'd be concerned about the non-adjustable intonation... is that an issue for anyone?
