For me, it has to be the ES Les Paul. I played it for an hour. Huge neck, crazy resonant. My wallet already hurts...



Unlike the florentine models this will have ES type construction and be in between $2,000 and $3,000 I think. What do you guys say?

DAMN'T! I feared this day would come and I new it would come at a time when I'm broke as a joke! LOL! I won't rest until I try it! I think its sweet! I'd probably take the guard off though.

Uggg on the F-holes


How is this different than a Chambered LP other than the F-holes?
If it is indeed utilizing 335 type construction then it would be made from laminate woods where as the chambered LP is carved out solid mahogany with a solid maple cap. Not sure if Gibson would go that route with the back and sides but the top would definitely be laminate.

As for the F-holes, I'm the exact opposite. I really dig them. In fact I'd like it better if they were accented with binding. Different strokes for different folks though! :D

My favorite so far (that I have seen in pictures only) is the Gibson Trini Lopez reissue. Yowza!

For me, it's the Guthrie Govan Charvel.

Also really dug the 30th Anniversary Jackson Soloists.

Saw this one on Facebook. Don't know the story behind it, but I want one!

I played it. The Bigsby is kind of weird because there's like no angle on it, but it actually played and sounded really cool. Quality and feel was on par with the Japanese made Gretsch guitars (it was made in Indonesia)

Gotta say I don't like the f-holes either. No probs with f-holes on a downsize archtop or Les Paul style guitar but here they look out of proportion. Check out the Ibanez George Benson to see how it should be done...

from where i sit? the es paul appears to be a full scale semi hollow version of my very first guitar, the es 140.
