    Now that --- is what I am talking about. Great job Pete.

    I think this showcases exactly what a 59 should sound like and why Gil gets the accolades he does on his replica's. So many of those authentic and recognizable tones one wants to have in their sonic palette.

    Very nice indeed!

    Sounds incredible. Did I miss the part about who built this, or is that a secret?

    Pete that sounds great. What fun these guitars are to play!

    I said it before, but I will say it again here - these guitars capture something special. Borrowing from your interview vid I guess you could say they let you get as 'meticulous' as you want. They definitley allow for the full expression of what you are trying to convey. Thanks Gil!

    Congratulations and thanks for making the demo!

    If Gibson was smart they would commission Gil to build some guitars...

    To echo what everyone else has said, it sounds fantastic. The middle position in particular was a surprise, there's a definite Strat-like quack going on there.

    very much looking forward to hearing more videos, especially through your Komet.


    Someone suggested this in the TDPRI build thread and Gil answered that Gibson know exactly how to do this, but they choose not to (paraphrasing).

    Sounds great..always like your YouTube stuff.

    Is this a LP conversion or a Yaron LP replica?

    I am looking for the "Like" button....

    That's exactly what Gibson should do. A Master Luthier Gil run of 59 Replica's would be lucrative and a good business decision.

    Great demo!

    I've always thought the same thing, a burst should sound like a Mac sized Tele. And that has always been the main difference between a good PAF Les Paul and ant of the RIs I've heard. The RIs sound too fat and midrangey, compared to an old one. No depth and clarity to the bass, not enough bite on the top end. Just really narrow and wooly.

    That's kinda what my R9's like, although it's still nice. But it's definitely got a "rock" voice, nice on the bridge pickup but the other positions I tend to avoid for the reasons you mention. This guitar is a whole other ball of wax.

    What bothers me with most humbucker guitars is when you lay into them, they always break the amp up, I never seem to be able to get truly clean if I want it. Like I can with a Strat or Tele. This guitar can be crystal clean.

    I haven't actually plugged it into my Komet yet- but I've been looking forward to it! :)

    That guitar (and the player!) sound absolutely stellar. So rare to hear that kind of chime and openness from an LP-type guitar.

    Congrats and enjoy!

    Congrats and enjoy!

    Freakin amazing, Pete. I think that's the best Les Paul I've ever heard. The clean tones in that vid were unreal..

    My buddy (Woody) is in a neighboring studio to you, and he's gonna absolutely love the Yaron's tones as well. He was amazed by the tones you coaxed out of your other guitars, pedals and amps.

    Rock on, and more videos pls, whenever!
