I´ve always heard people how great are 68 customs, 59 standards, etc...you know em. But the thing is i´m not a Les Paul fan, but sometimes i play one that makes me howl. Last time i thought about it and found a reason. All of them were made in the 70´s, all were customs, and the most important part, all of them had maple necks in spite the usual mahogany neck. So i think that´s the main reason, thy´re more aggresive, with more highs, more definition with gain. 70´s LPs are supposed to be "not very good", but i love them. I think they were made with the maple neck from 74 to 81, am i right? Anyone there prefer maple necks also?
