Anyone have an opinion on who is currently making the "ultimate" Les Paul? The "Ultimate" Les Paul has the classic Les Paul tone: Huge, Fat GROWL and rich harmonics, but also has what Gibson sorely lacks: craftmanship, playability, and consistently great (AWESOME) sound. Also, how would varying the classic formula of Mahogany and Maple change the tone? Rosewood neck, Korina/Limba body, Chambers, etc... I've got an R9 that I'm thinking sounds HUGE, and a Thorn SC on order. Just wondering if there's anyone else worth looking into (e.g., McNaught, Huber). For my Thorn, I'm keeping the body 2", chambered, mahogany with a brazilian rosewood neck and trem. I was thinking of using Korina for the body, but Ron and I thought I might lose some of that low end "chunky" growl. Thanks!
