Got my Gold Top Les Paul in October 2004 in New Hampshire. It has been worth every penny. When we perform live, she just sings... I play through a Marshall DSL 401, but she makes any amp sound good!!!(no effects...just amp) I use Fenders too (my bandmates wonder why because of the tone) I explain that the neck is different. But as time passes, I use the LP more and more. Value? I feel when compared to Fender Strats(artist and custom shop) you get way more for the money. All this stuff of paying extra for an old looking strat, heck it still has a bolt on neck folks. I have an American Deluxe HSS strat, and a Mexi w/ Dimarzio pickups..they are equal in playability. I like the Mexi a bit more. I also own an Epiphone Elitist Les Paul, vintage sunburst. A great guitar. I would get another, and would recommend it over a Gibson LP studio, no question. Even over a Gibson LP classic, because the Epi Elite has real pearl inlays and the lower end Gibsons do not( a hang up of mine). The Epi sounds great too, w/ all American electronics. But you know what? The Gibson Gold top sounds even better, with the Burstbuckers and the solid Mahogany back..SOLID MAHOGANY (Honduran...at least as of 2 years ago). Hearing is believing. And to compare to a Strat with...3 pieces of alder glued together? There is no point in comparing, they are 2 different animals. But I must add that no 2 guitars are alike. I played many LP's, bought the Epi Elite before I was lucky enough to find the Gold top I have now. I will say that side by side with a magnifying glass, the inlay work on the Epi Elite was just a bit cleaner and more precise. Also Gibsons keep going up in value...about 10% each year, and quality wood will only become more scarce as time passes... One last thing...true, a name doesn't make a guitar.. and a guitar doesn't make a player... but sometimes quality speaks for itself..

I've owned five Gibsons Les Paul Standard in the last two years and I've sold all but one. That one is still for sale. Quality control seems totally absent at the Gibson company today. The guitars were all finished very poorly, inlays were cheap plastic, they had horrific tuning machines, weighed more than a slughammer and the "burstbucker" pickups can't seem to deliver tone anymore. I've been playing guitar for over forty years, professionally. In the old days they used to make some great Gibsons. That seems a distant memory. I use an American Standard Fender Stratocaster now for all my work onstage and in the recording studio, and despite ridicule about the bolt on-neck from some die hard Gibson fans, it never failed me, rings like a bell, and gets about every tone you may need in every musical setting. If people ridicule the bolt on, how about all the les Pauls and ES-335's with broken headstocks? My repaircenter sees them every day. I thought I got the wrong guitar that was made on a monday, so I gave Gibson several other chances. After the last five (which I all had to sell way under the price!! So far for value) I will never buy a Gibson again in my lifetime. I can get three fantastic, rock-solid US Stratocasters for the price of one of these shadows of their former selves. The Gibson reputation is only built on hype, all the quality is gone. For an expensive instrument this is unacceptable.

I made it a point to avoid a les paul at all costs because of the uncanny popularity, but dang it, I had to pick one up and it blew my socks off... *siigh, another $$$$ on this awesome axe.
This is the best guitar known to man, either this or the les paul standard limited edition. It's been used by Jimmy Page, Slash, Joe Perry, Even Edward Van Halen used one every once in a while...Amazing
I have played different guitars before, but never a gibson, so i wanted to buy a new guitar but i wasn't quite sure what to pick as my first choice, so i did some research and found out the les paul was the first choice of most of my guitar heroes, (jimmy page, sash, zakk wilde, joe perry, etc) so i was curious and eager to find out if all that praise and recognition was real, so i went to try one and as soon as i laid eyes on it i feel in love with it, and it was before even playing it, so imagine the minute i stroke the first chord, it was paradise it has an incredible punch, the sustain is so ethernal and vibrant i turned the distortion all the way up and there was absolutly no feedback or hum, its playability is amazing and it has a unique design and i can tell you no matter how hard i play it just never goes out of tune. i can honestly say that it is worth every penny of it, and even tough this is my first experience with this guitar i am a gibson guy all the way.
You would think coming from Gibson that "Standard" would mean the standard of quality, sound, and feel. But No, just the opposite, standard means just the standard old quality, just below standard sound, the feel was the only thing that set the standard. I played this guitar in a new store in town and I was so disappointed. The treble(Neck)pickup didnt hardly pickup the sound coming from the High E string. Why spend $$$ on a guitar that wont even work totally right. My friend has an Indonisian version of a Les Paul and it sounds and feels better than this guitar! Doesnt Git-R-Done.
This is my second les paul I also have an 1980 custom that I've had for a long time and was very spoiled.I was pretty scared about putting out so much money on a mail order guitar.However the set-up right out of the box was fantastic,all I had to do was lower the action a bit and wail.These are the greatest pickups I've ever heard.In short What a Guitar!!You won't be disappointed Gibson still stands for quality Hey and the Melody Maker,This is the best deal I've ever bought.
This is a fabulous guitar! It has an amzaing sound on just about any amp you play it with. And the playability is great!
I bought one of these about a week ago, and i couldn't be happier. Gibson has always been know for quality instruments and the Les Paul is proof of that level of quality. The pick-ups are some of the best Gibson P-Us. The finish is absolutley beautiful. This thing has wowed my friends. One thing I really like is how there are different volume and tone nobs for each pick-up. The 60's neck is fast and easily played. It comes with a locking hardshell case, which has a nice little storage compartment for extra stings, cable, strap and what not. The only thing takes away for the guitar is the weight. I think they're around 7-9 lbs. So if weight is an important thing for you, try an SG, but if not this is the best guitar that money can buy (in my opinion)
I received this guitar as a gift and I must say it is fantastic. The pickups sound great, the neck feels great - everything about this guitar is fantastic, and it was a HUGE step up from my Squier Strat. It's Sounding great for U2 music for all you other Edge hopefuls out there. :)Next, an AC30....;-)If you can afford it, this guitar is a must-buy.
The vintage tuners absolutely awful. After about two string changes, the backing to the g string tuner keeps lifting up and it makes the tuner very unstable and wobbly and it goes out of tune with even the slightest bend. But, as a matter of fact, all of the tuners seem unstable. Also the binding is not up to par and the pickups sound awful. The guitar also had neck problems and the frets were disgustingly dressed and felt awful. They are like big nasty square metal bars and not rounded because apparently that would cost too much and be too time consuming. The setup was the worst thing I have ever seen. I couldn't adjust the intonation properly at all and the action had to be set unbearably high (and I like a higher action) or there would be total choking of notes. Overall, I hate this guitar with a passion. I recommend that you look in to heritage guitars for a suitable les paul style guitar.
I worked all summer to get this badboy, the best part is definitely the pickups, they just sound unbelievable. People complain that les pauls are heavy and that SGs are better, while SGs are still good, they don't sound nearly as good as Les Pauls do because they dont have as much wood and resonance in them as Les Pauls do. I recommend the 60s slim tapered neck over the 50s fat neck for obvious reasons!
