True Dat!! I DO LIKE THE TONE THOUGH!!Before I get started, I will admit I haven't been here very often as of late. There's reasons for it. Good reasons. But they're not important as far as this thread goes.
If you are reading this, you have either bought a Gibson Les Paul...
....or you are going to eventually buy a Gibson Les Paul. There's no two bones about it.
It's not about the quality, it's not about how well it plays, it's not about the tone. This is all just a bunch of crap.
YOU will eventually buy one simply because of what it is....which is a Gibson Les Paul. Anyone who is even semi-serious about guitar will inevitably flirt with ownership as a rite of passage.
And if you're HERE, you're more than casually interested in the model.
Truth be told? Pshah. The more guitars I play, the less impressed I am.
But that isn't the point. Maybe you have an Ibanez, an Epiphone, another clone, or even something comparable like a high end ESP or a Tokai or whatever...
....it doesn't matter.
It's like buying a classic muscle car. That's all that will do. You won't be satisfied with something that is just as fast, or is even faster or handles better than the '69 Chevelle or the Shelby Mustang Cobra....
..because of what they aren't.
..and in truth, you'd probably be doing yourself a huge favor by ceasing the endless justifications for buying one. There are none, other than "it's a Gibson Les Paul", you have the cash, and you want it just for that reason alone.
Are you paying too much? Damn straight you are. But does it really matter? Probably not.
