    Anyone know where I could purchase a used Gibson Les Paul? I play mainly acoustic and I have a Taylor 810, which I absolutely love, but now I want to also get into high-end electrics - and nothing plays like a Gibson.

    There's almost always a couple in the guitar emporium here.
    You could also try Marks guitar loft, he has some beauties, and is a great guy.

    I have one, but it depends on what your price range is. What price tag are you hoping for?

    Pawn Shops, music stores. Tag/rummage sales locally, regional guitar shows. eBay.com, Musicians Friend, Music123, Gibson.com. Les Paul Forum classifieds, TGP Guitar and Instrument Emporium. Craiglist. Vintage Guitar Magazine classifieds. Go to the local library, they may have some helpful resources as well. Good luck, I can't vouch for all the methods I listed as I haven't used them all myself.;) :D :roll :AOK :worried :D

    Play some guitars. When I started getting into playing a lot, I got a Taylor 412, and the neck just felt SO easy. I had a Les Paul already, and found it more difficult to play. More so even than Fender-style guitars I had played because the neck felt so different. I love the sound of the guitar, so I still have it, and eventually got more comfortable on it, but coming off that Taylor, PRS guitars felt too familiar to me, and I wound up getting a couple. My McCarty's don't quite sound the same, but are still the most comfortable for me to play. If it's the sound you're after, get the LP, if it's the feel, try out some PRS's.

    Vintage Guitar Magazine has about 25 dealers in there. If you want proven dealers go to the Les Paul Forum dealers. Every one listed on there has sold thousands of guitars to the members. Mark at Marks Guitars actually talked me out of a guitar because it wasn't the tone I was looking for.

    I've had great luck with ebay, but it's a crapshoot.
