The Best Les Paul

Comments about Gibson Custom 1954 Les Paul Goldtop VOS Electric Guitar:

I have 25 guitars and am more of a Fender than Gibson Person, but this P90 Les Paul is my all time favorite. I actually consider it cheating because the tone is so good and it is so easy to play. It makes it hard to go back to the Fenders. It has all those Fender qualities of clean and bell- like tone but when cranked this thing rips. It cries, moans, yells,grunts and whispers sweet nothings I absolutely love this guitar.

Comments about Gibson Custom 1954 Les Paul Goldtop VOS Electric Guitar:

If you're looking for the ultimate all around eletric guitar, the 1954 Custom Shop Gold Top Les Paul is for you. This model is fitted with the smokin P90 pick-ups with a wraparound one piece bridge that's integrel to incredible tone and sustain unheard of in a stock guitar! One can play nearly every style with it. Hard rock, blues, jazz or country. Great with effects pedals or straight into the amplifier. Perferably a tube amplifier. A little pricey, but it'll last a lifetime and retain it's value. If you're stuck between choosing a Les Paul or a Stratocaster go with the 1954 Custom Shop Les Paul as it is like having both guitars in one.

      Comments about Gibson Custom 1954 Les Paul Goldtop VOS Electric Guitar:

      Excellent guitar from the golden age of blues to rock. P-90 to die for, bumblebee caps (yes) nice neck. I can't stand 60's slim taper.
      Just a great reproduction at a kinda high price. But shop around for used, nearly new for about 3 bills. They will hold their value and except for a nickle wrap around tailpiece, totally complete. No need for any mods.
      Definately a tube amp to get that single coil growl...to clear as a bell. I can't fault it.

      Comments about Gibson Custom 1954 Les Paul Goldtop VOS Electric Guitar:

      If you're a tone guru who loves a P-90 equipped guitar, and have the cash to spend, by all means indulge yourself in one of these gems. A friend of mine bought one after playing my Hamer Special, because he wanted A Les Paul with '90's. Of course it kills my Hamer, I am not ashamed to report. The craftmenship is superb and the wrap around bridge really adds to the resonance of this Gold-top. If you love blues, this will be right up your alley. I played it through A JTM30, and it quacked and barked with the volume pushed, and it was as clear as a bell, each note sustinct and shimmering. With the volume down, it could stand on it's own as a country and jazz guitar. Very versitile indeed! I gave it a 4 for value, because of the pricing.

          Comments about Gibson Custom 1954 Les Paul Goldtop VOS Electric Guitar:

          I'm a little obsessive about electrics and have owned just about every major "must have" custom shop Gibson and Fender over time. In the end I kept a '52 Tele, a 64' ES-345, an R9 and the R4. If I was ever put in a situation where I had to sell them and keep one that does it all it would be the R4 no questions asked. It has all the bite of a Fender and the deep thickness of a Gibson all in one package, and how much of each character is present is all up to you as you roll the volumes and tones in and out. The larger neck and wraparound bridge (I added a mojotone compensated bridge) set it apart from other guitars I've played. Unplugged it's a very "alive" instrument and sustains forever. Plugged in the P90's offer up everything from spanking cleans to jazz tones to thick punchy rock tones without adjusting anything on the amp. I'd never say custom shop guitar prices are reasonable because in my mind honestly they're not, you're paying crazy money for any of these models, but I would be hard pressed to find a situation where any other guitar I've owned would be the better guitar for the gig, and that's hard to put a price on. If you're looking for beautiful old school tones, they're all there to be found in this guitar.
