Honestly, I'm getting tired of signature artist guitars, especially les pauls and strats. It's not that they are bad instruments, I mean these are quality made instruments that play really, really well and sound great. They are built like they should be, no question. I just think that so many people have their own variations of the instrument nowadays, and they just keep getting turned into production models when they really shouldn't. I mean sure, a les paul is a fantastic instrument, but when there is a version modeled after every one of your favorite guitarists, things start to get pointless. I mean more power to any artist who needs an axe that suits them and is made to their specs, but Gibson doesn't need to release a huge run of them just for the public. My favorite would have to be the '59 historic or the traditional. These timeless classics will never die with the amount of story they have. It's things like the "Don Felder Hotel California 1959 Gibson Les Paul Sunburst" or the "Eric Clapton Beano 1960 Gibson Les Paul Sunburst" that really seem pointless. I mean the price tag is through the roof, and they are literally the exact same as a 59 or 60 RI, save for some relicing and a particular burst. They have many more, all named after a particular artist. http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Ele...Gibson-Custom.aspx?ProductGroup=Artist-Models If there is one person who I think deserves a Signature les paul, it's Paul Kossoff. The guy was the most notable les paul user I can think of. I'm not trying to bash and these are just my opinions, my favorite guitars are Gibsons and Fenders. I'm just really tired of all these random signature guitars.
