  • Excerpt: It's a shame that they charge an arm and a leg for this guitar. With a Zamak Nashville TOM bridge, Nylon Nut, and a Zamak Tailpiece, and fairly hot pickups, this thing is a far cry from a late 50's Les Paul. The pickups used to come stock in 2007 SG Standards, and the Nashville TOM started coming standard in Gibson guitars in the 80's. Certificate of authenticity? Authentic WHAT?
  • Pros: Pros, Binding, Solid Electronics, Tuners

Gibson CS-336

20 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I play lots of styles and this baby I use for anything. I've played the ES-339 also and it's nice, but there is no comparison aside from the size and style. This Custom Shop gem is my main guitar until my final breath on the planet. I have a 2001 LP Standard, Custom Strat, Standard Strat, PRS CE-22, Fender Nashville Tele and to go with my V...

Epiphone Les Paul Classic Quilt Top

MusicGearReview.com
16 March 2010
  • Excerpt: I got the Wine Red Quilt top back in 2007, played it stock for a year then changed up the action and did some basic setting up and I still love this guitar. I currently own a Gibson Les Paul Studio and this guitar is easily its match. The quilt top itself is kind of hard to notice in a dark lighting but when you get it in a bright light, the beauty really shows through.

Epiphone Les Paul Classic

MusicGearReview.com
27 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Overall, to get an Epi Les Paul for $200 that's only 5 years old and is in great shape is a good deal to me. It was the perfect present to myself. It looks good, plays nice, and sounds great. I'm pretty happy with it. Other than the tuning issue which drives me nuts.. need to take that to the shop to see what they can do. [ read more on Audiofanzine ] This is the right guitar if you want to play any kind of rock based music. It sustains well and handles like a dream.

Gibson Les Paul Classic Honeyburst

MusicGearReview.com
18 November 2006
  • Excerpt: I havent played in quite a few years and wated to get back into it again after seeing my favorite band, Tonic play. The LP Classic was the obvious choice. I did alot of pricing for this guitar on the Internet before going to my local Sam Ash. Their sale price was $1,650.00. They will price-match anybody who is an authorized dealer. I ended up paying 1,250.00 plus tax at Sam Ash Music. I bought this guitar because it is a true "classic" in every sense of the word.

Epiphone SG Special

4 February 2005
  • Excerpt: I have had this guitar for 4 odd years now. I will never sell/trade it. It never seems to let me down. That's pretty good because I play it a lot. For the money, it was an excellent value. The only real drawback I see is the finish. I really don't like it much at all, but hey, at least it's not pink or some damn thing like that! [ read more on Audiofanzine ] For £120 you're getting a guitar that looks like an SG, plays ALMOST as well as an SG, and sounds ace.

Gibson SG Special Faded

MusicGearReview.com
3 January 2005
  • Excerpt: I'll try to summarise the guitar with respect to both my opinions, and to the point of view of someone looking to buy an SG without having owned one before. This guitar is an excellent choice if you want to upgrade from a cheaper brand or perhaps are looking for something a little different, say if you've only played Strats or Teles. This is ...

Gibson 1958 Les Paul Figuredtop Historic Custom Shop (R8)

MusicGearReview.com
29 November 2004
  • Excerpt: Years ago, in 1970, Peter Green and Nigel Watson were hanging around my house near Detroit. In the series of jam sessions we had at that time Peter was using the legendary 59 Les Paul he later gave to Gary Moore; which, as everyone knows sounded amazing (no petals here, just straight tube tone). For the last 20-25 years I have mostly played Strats, and I felt it was time for a change.

Gibson Les Paul Classic

MusicGearReview.com
19 September 2004
  • Excerpt: If you can't afford the Traditional, I recommend checking out the Classic. It's a bit more geared towards metal heads given the 500T pickup, and it tends to go for a bit less than the Standard. It's hard to recommend the current Standards given that they're now chambered. The Classic is weight relieved (just like all Gibsons since the 80s), b... [ read more on Audiofanzine ] Had this guitar for 7 years...2001 model. Love the vibe.. feel.. look.
