well I finally did it! I finally bought a Gibson Les Paul! This one is a 2012 L/P Traditional in Chicago Blue with a AA flamed maple top. I decided to sell off some of my low end guitars to fund the purchase of the Gibson. Can't say I'm disappointed!

Nice guitar :tu:tu The only downfall is the weight...Way too heavy.
Not necessarily.... my '58 Historic Tea Burst is barely 8 lbs.
Les Pauls can sound good light or heavy, just depends on the particular guitar.



Wraplock,

I've been a Fender guy my whole life but the last couple of years I've finally figured out how to get the magic out of my Gibsons and I love 'em. Once I lowered the pickups on my Les Paul it became a lot more versatile. I'm still learning to REALLY use the volume and tone knobs because there are a ton of in-between tones in there.
That guitar is a beauty.

Like you I have played fender guitars for about 50 years. My Son just bought my Grandson a Gibson L/P Goldtop for his 16th. birthday. I was always told one of the ways to select an electric guitar was to see how it sounded unplugged. After I played the kids Goldtop I ran and grabbed my American Tele and boy was there a difference. I sold off two Epiphones I had, a Dot and a L/P copy, and added the rest of the money for this one. And you're right about the weight. My Son has a Studio that has a chambered body and it sounds just as good as this one!

:tu Very nice guitar! I bought my Les Paul used in 1983, its 1981 tobacco sunburst with Dimarzio super distortion humbuckers. You will want a strap lock for the for the front strap button, it would be a shame to drop it when you get carried away rockin out.

Strap locks was the first thing I did before waxing it!
