I have been waiting for this guitar all of my life. The Gibson Les Paul is my main guitar. I am 6' 4" tall and the baritone version is the first one that I have played that fits my height. It has more power and low end than any other guitar made.
It was an epic journey to procure myself one of these awesome axes but I have it and I think it is going to take out my HSS Strat' as my favorite guitar. From the ebony fretboard to the chrome hardware to the all over finish this is a beauty of a guitar. Great sustain and sound with stock setup - as it is I can't see changing it. The one thing I was surprised by though was its weight - this thing is a tank - I have a rack of 5 guitars and this is heavier than the bass that I keep out. But it is comfortable to play regardless. I've heard that this line is being discontinued, which is a shame but if you can get your hands on one I HIGHLY recommend the Les Paul Studio Baritone!
When I recieved this guitar, the overall beauty of it floored me. It is such an amazing guitar and the chrome just makes it look so great. The longer neck takes almost no getting used to, and if you just buy a capo, you can play songs from low to high and change tunings in seconds. The 24 fret (2 octave) range of it makes it really great too. I'd recommend this guitar to anyone who plays enough songs in a low tuning to be sick of thier strings feeling like elastics. It's completely great.
I've seen/played one of these. The 24 fret idea is great but on a Gibson it looks dumb. The neck looks huge lengthwise so it's an instant turnoff for me. Tone is great like all Gibsons and I love tone but I don't like an eye sore so I'll stick to playing standard 22 fret Gibsons. Now if they did this to an explorer or a V I'm sure it would look awesome but les pauls no.
I like the 28 inch Baritone neck on these guitars. The longer neck improves your playing capabilities with more frets.
This is a great guitar but why did they have to use dot inlays?? The finishes could be better colors but they aren't that bad. If it weren't for the cosmetics I would own one.
My girlfriend got me this guitar for christmas, and all I can say is wow. Mine looks almost identical to the black one pictured, only instead of dot inlays it has the regular studio style fretboard. I haven't seen another one exactly like it, it looks awesome and plays even better. The only thing I plan on changing is the pickups. I would definitely recommend this guitar to everyone.
This has been the most comfortable and amazing sounding Baritone I have played. All my guitars are set up from A-E-A-D-B-B and I have never had tuning problems or muddy sounds w/ this one. Looking to buy many more!
one heavy sounding guitar!! deep and droney, there's nothing like a l.p. I am a little bit let down by some little things. maybe i am just being nit-picky, but for the price, I would have liked to have seen better workmanship. there appears to be file marks on the fingerboard in several different places, the dot inlays are a tad sloppy. not what i was expecting from a gibson usa model. but again, it's just little stuff. maybe because it's the most expensive thing i own, i tend to get picky, but it sure sounds great, looks super and plays like a dream. I love it very much and play it exclusively.
Got one for Christmas and my impression of it so far is fantastic. This is the first Les Paul I've ever owned. It is absolutely solid and plays quite well right out of the case - I may not have to do any set-up for it. It came tuned C-C and I just put a capo at the 4th fret and I'm in standard tuning. I have a NYE gig where I get to break it in with a band so we'll see how well I can work with the capo. I wanted the baritone for the extra range for my solo shows. It's great to have the extra room "underneath" to drop songs down to fit my vocal range, and not have to rearrange the chord shapes. Anyway, the guitar is a beauty. Mine is metallic blue and I have to say it looks far better than it does in the pictures! I would not have chosen this particular finish based on what I had seen but my wife surprised me and I'm extrememly pleased! It also comes in a very nice case - as it should. I highly recommend this guitar.
