I bought mine in 2003 and had to send it back because the binding was separated from the fretboard and the first string would catch on the frets (cherry sunburst). A couple months later I found a white one (after playing several) that sounded particularly good. I started playing in 1964 and have made my living playng.I currently own 151 guitars and 40+ amps so I have plenty to compare this guitar to. My 1969 strat is the best guitar I own but I prefer Les Pauls to Fenders. I have 6 Gibson Les Pauls. For looks this one is beautiful and I play it more than any other Gibson I own although I do have a 1960 Standard that sounds better this one is much lighter and if you have to stand up with a guitar for 2 hours ten pounds gets heavy. It has a heavy resonant sound and miles of sustain. I Generally play it through a modified Blues Deville and a 1968 Bandmaster both with recent cap jobs and new tubes as well as K 120 JBL 12" bell magnet speakers or if using a stack a Gibson Super Goldtone. If you can't afford a custom shop Les Paul or a vintage this is an excellent choice. Not so much money you cry over every scratch but tone and sustain only a real Les Paul can give you. If your a shredder, use tons of effects and dig digital amps don't waste your money, you can do that with a $400 guitar. But if you have paid your dues and have the ability this is a great Les Paul on stage and in the studio.

After waiting for 8 months from the order date, I received this guitar in Desert Burst and repackaged it within 2 minutes of opening it. Never bothered to plug it in. Although I'm sure it would have sounded nice, the finish was deplorable! Come on, Gibson, for 3 grand, can't you take the time to inspect the finish for obvious flaws like laquer runs, head stock dents and color transfer rubs from the drying rack, swirl marks in the finish, and grime on all gold surfaces!!?? What gives? Was some one in a hurry to get it off the production floor, or did I receive a reject? For this much money I prefer to be the one to add the character marks, not the factory. What a major let down. Never again.

A True Work of Art

By String Jammer

from Barre, VT

See all my reviews

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

Gibson really went all out on this model. The Root Beer finish brings out the flame nicely and gives a rich appearance. I treat it like a fine piece of furniture, displaying it on the wall and polishing it often. It has a much rounder and growly tone than my LP Std. and seems to weigh about the same even with the added maple back plate that the Supreme has. My only complaint is that the fingerboard seems to be too narrow causing the high E string to slip off the edge easily when playing in the higher registers. I also had problems keeping it in tune right off the bat, but some graphite on the nut cured that problem.

Gibson Pure

By Country Inspector

from South Carolina

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

I debated a while before buying my Heritage Cherry Supreme. I have other quality electric guitars, but the Les Paul Supreme is in a league of it's own. The finish, detail, and workmanship on the guitar I received is superb and I'm somewhat of a pickey person, being a retired building inspector. It is a comfort to play. I would recommend this guitar to any serious guitar player. You will not be wasting your money if you purchase this guitar, well worth it.

Best Les Paul Ever

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

Ive saved up for a long time to be able to buy this girl. She has the chambers of a 335 but the crunch of a les paul. The weight is so much better compared to the other les pauls, and the neck is awesome.

The Ultimate in Les Paul Design

By WavesRocker 7

from West Palm Beach, Florida

See all my reviews

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

Absolutely amazing guitar. I've run it through all kinds of amps, from vintage Fender tube amps to Marshall Stacks to various vox models - and the sound is just unbelievable. The sheer beauty of this guitar is incredible, non-guitarists even admire the wood grain, the paint, and the gold trimming! All in all, a worthy investment

A Dream Guitar..

By WindSlash

from Gadsden, AL

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

I've been playing guitar quite some time now. I've seen them all, play most, and rocked my heart out. There isn't a single guitar that can compare to this one. The Les Paul Supreme a top of the line Gibson guitar. The Brand name says it all!... It's a real Dream guitar. It's something to really show off to your friends =P.From it's luxurious look, to it's fabulous tone. This guitar has it all. When I first got it, I was afraid to play it. Now this is practically the meaning to my existance.

This guitar is the ONE!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

First off, all I can say about this guitar is wow! This guitars looks blew me away when I saw one with my own eyes, and the tone and sound was even better. I couldn't decide between a Les Paul Custom or the Supreme, so I decided to try both of them out in a local store. Between both, in my opinion, the Supreme was without a doubt the one I wanted. The weight difference and sustain due to the chambered body truly makes this electric soar in sound. The custom binding and gold hardware gives it an absolutly beautiful look. Before, I was not a Les Paul fan and didn't like the sunburst finishes because I see them everywhere, but the Supreme is in a class of its own. I have a heritage cherry sunburst finish and I have never seen a look like this before. If you like great sounding guitars, and love the unique looks of Gibson's finishes, this is the one for YOU!

Best Guitar Ive ever owned

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

I picked up this guitar and was amazed at how light weight it was. You can tell the tone is amazing without even plugging it in. Once I did, I was amazed. This guitars handle is great. Not only is the body amazing but the neck shape is great for me, the body fits me well. And the pickups were also great. Best guitar I have ever owned.

I got my Gibson Les Paul Supreme delivered today. This is my very first Gibson. I am in love. This guitar plays so smooth, sounds so wonderful...I am honestly thinking of only buying Gibson from now on. Even the case it comes with is total quality. Believe me, when you open the case to this gorgeous guitar, mouths will drop to the floor. Stunning.

Guitar Of My Dreams

By SkyDog-nGJ-I

from Vancouver, WA

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

I NEVER give products all 5 ratings, but this is a great exception. Every aspect exceeded any guitar i have owned or played. The tone can make you howl or cry, the finish is art, its lighter than most Les Paul's and it plays like butter.

A little to pricey for what you get

By Neal-Au17x

from Woodbridge, VA

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

I agree with the vast majority of the comments here about this guitar. It is amazing. I also own an Explorer, 80's vintage Carvin and a Strat for electrics. This is a sweet guitar and after having it a year, I think it plays better now and I like it even more. My only complaint is workmanship. I was so stunned by the initial overall beauty of the instrument, I didn't really look at the small details. Mine really doesn't have a "flawless" finish. The nut area is kind of rough and very slightly misaligned. The binding, or paint, around the headstock is little sloppy for a guitar of this price. I just wonder at this price point if it is not wiser to get a "bottom of the line" custom shop model. I regret that I have some doubts about the purchase but it's the first LP I've owned and DO absolutely love it. Silky and sweet neck/fretboard!

No PRS, Gibson, RKS, Fender or Rickenbacker can even get close to this incredible instrument! Features - 2 Volumes 2 tones and the gibson switchQuality - I bought mine back in 2003 and it looks better then brand new and I've gigged with it countless number of times! This guitar is just flawless, everything about it just goes beyond a piece of art.Value - Nothing can compare with this guitar in any range if you were thinking of buying a Custom Shop think again! The quality craftsman ship is your playing on air it's incredible no instrument can compare it's like a Martin guitar and a les paul in one! The weight releif is completely differnet then that of the other Gibsons so balanced and incredible. I've owned PRS, RKS and many other Gibsons and this is the best guitar I've ever played it's unmatched for sound quality and feel.

Start A Revolution

By prophetOFhendrix

from NYC,NY

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

This is the guitar that we have all been waiting for! This is the guitar that will start the musical revolution! Why has the rock scene declined so much in recent years? Because no one owns this guitar! Just like Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, and Jeff Beck did just to name a few. Buy this guitar, and become part of the revolution, rather than a statistical mindless drone who is the guitar player today.

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

I play many styles, and this guitar is NO DOUBT the sweetest I have ever had! I own several Pauls and this one is it! The clean sounds are (Bridge) mellow (BOTH P/U) rounded and (Bridge) bright but not overly so. Very balanced, and the Trans Amber is to die for! This thing has the tone of a violin, sitar, you name it. This is a can-do machine! I love mine (can you tell) and while the price isn't low, it IS WORTH EVERY PENNY! Now I gotta become worthy of it!

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar for my husband a year ago. I got the translucent amber and it arrived in prestige condition. We have had no trouble with the guitar and every time my husband plays a gig everyone wants a close up view. It is a beautiful guitar and although I am not a musician myself I can say this, "The Gibson les paul supreme has the best sound I have ever heard, on leads it sings like no other. You will not be dissapointed with this guitar. In closing I'ld like to say I am glad I made this purchase.

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Supreme Figured Electric Guitar:

This Guitar a true work of art! I own many guitar's as well as another paul, but this my friends is a beautiful guitar. The flame maple top is flawless (mine is hritage cherry sunburst). The fretboard is fast, and the neck is perfect. I get the perfect Warren Hayne's tone ala the Dose album. It sounds great for eveything , but I'd use my other paul for blues as this is better suited for rock. Jazz is good on this guitar too!
