I think a Les Paul can be a far more versatile guitar than people give them credit for.
I couldn't agree with you more. I find mine to be incredibly versatile... Basically does whatever I want it to.
Infact, I can get those 2 LP's to sound very close to my Tele's, but I can't get my Tele's to sound anywhere near what my LP's can do - at least not without a bunch of pedals, boosters, amp tweaks etc. With the LP's it's all there in the vol/tone controls.
My 1972 Lester with Harmonic Design Z-90's. Super clarity and huge sound. It can sound big and bold or chimmy or it has a convincing jazz sound.
Glad you found what makes you happy @Magnets And Melodies !
My #1 is a 2014 Gibson Custom Long Scale (25.5") Les Paul. Here it is as a newborn:

It's not 100% stock now anymore but remains my #1. This model is really rare, so I grabbed a few while they were readily available. The first I bought happens to be my favorite of the three.

That’s just a regular USA model
Crazy bit of $$$ to pay for a modded/aged USA LP too.
I mentioned earlier that Nash bought a near mint ‘11 R8 from me for $3300. How much did that end up selling for after his process?!
@Magnets And Melodies I will be joining the R9 club soon. Pulled the trigger on a nice one... Be on the lookout for a NGD thread in couple weeks from now. Just know it's all your fault though
Haha! I feel no remorse.... haha.
Congrats man! I can't wait to see the NGD post!!! Happy for you.
Not by the time Bill’s done with it tho. At that point in may play and sound better than a CS. However I’d ask for Lollar imperials rather than dimarzios. Never been a fan of dimarzios.
I don’t know, it is what it is regardless of how it may sound.
A $1400 guitar with some changed parts and beat up paint for $4500.
I'm with you on this. I'm sure he does an amazing job on finishing and hardware & component swaps and things.. but unless you change the wood & construction of the guitar, then the guitars inherent sound won't change a whole lot... And most of the things that will change the sound are things you can do yourself for way less money, like hardware and pickup swaps. In the end the guitar is still the same guitar.
I’ve really liked the Nash’s I’ve played, fwiw. I even had a tele for a bit.
It didn’t start out as a les Paul standard? That’s what I took it to be which start out at $2500. Sorry if I misunderstood.
In my book much as I love em, anything over $2500 is not something I’ll buy. I’m satisfied with my $550 knock off. 75% of your tone is in your amp and your fingers anyway.
Yeah, it’s a Standard, but was used before he got to it. It’s an ‘05 model. You can find the those for $1400-$1700. Fairly often.
Hell of a lot of markup.
I have one of those. Never play it. Only have it because I FEEL like I need it. Don't actually enjoy it, just have memories of wanting it. Funny how that works.
