I am actually feeling more interest in different les pauls. not too long ago it seemed like i only liked...well 2 or 3.. but i like...like 40 different ones now. ive been looking at the the new 08' standard and that seems really cool. I would be all over it if it wasnt 2 grand

I don't really like Gibsons new stuff...its just getting worse and worse quality. (i.e. craftsmanship, electronics, and so-on)
It's not like it used to be...and they are still charging thousands of dollars lol.

the Gibson les paul traditional plus is my favorite..and i suppose the features on the new 08 standard are pretty cool, but why change something that didnt need to be changed?

I was looking for a back up guitar, came across the  Epiphone Black Beauty Les Paul. For the money I paid for it
the guitar is fine.. In fact it is now my main go to guitar at all gigs.. I have two.. my strat (one I built, and the Epi LP).  I figured I would have to change out the pups.. nope. Everything works great on the lp and sound very good through my amps.  I did take it to the guitar tech and have him do a full set up and clean on it.  It plays like glass, super fat sounds, sustain for days on end if I want..  FAT tones especially on the solos.  

 I started out on Gibson guitars way back in 1973 with a Gibson ES 345 (wished I still had that guitar). I played on a bunch of different Gibsons back in the 70's and 80's ( I'd be well off if I had kept all of them).  I jumped over to Strats in the late 70's early 80's and played on both, or copies of both. 

 I am now back to Gibson guitars again.. I fell in love with this one right after I got it back from the guitar tech.  I can freakin fly on this guitar. Effortless playing, the notes just jump out at you.  I was skeptical because it being an Epiphone .  My guitar tech says no worries it is a very well made guitar with quality mahogany body and neck. with Rosewood finger board He thought it was very well crafted and sounded very good, I asked what he thought of the pups.. He did make suggestion of changing out the neck pups. But the bridge is a Gibson Hot and had already been changed out.  

 $500.00 US +50.00 US for a case for it. it also came with stand.. so right now it is my favorite LP because it is one I am making money with.

I have an Epi Les Paul...a Cherryburst "standard plus",,, with a flame maple (veneer) top...I really like the guitar (the neck is a little thicker than I like, and the pickups lack a little luster), but I have no complaints with the workmanship...it's a beautiful guitar! I plan to load some Wagner pickups in there (when I can get the bread together, if you know what I mean!)

my favorite Les Paul was a 1963 Les Paul Junior that I had to sell in a moment a dire straight!

wagners are very good.. for LPs you might want to check out  the "Bare Knuckle Pups"  fantastic tone .. If your looking for vintage sounds they are especially good.
