A really good Les Paul sounds like, well........a really good Les Paul. There are plenty of complaints and faults to be found i suppose. But, is there anything that is as fat, round and warm as a good Les Paul? A Suhr is my number one, but there is no question in my mind that a Les Paul does its thing incredibly well. Suhr, Tyler and others have really taken the Fender style stuff to a level that I personally really enjoy. Is there anything out there that rivals an LP for that fat warm vintage tone and has extended what it does while actually retaining what is great about an LP. A really good Baker B1 may be as close as I have found to what I am describing. Most others I have tried have tended to be thinner, brighter and without the warmth and mid-punch that I love about a great LP. Any thoughts? Evan.
