Les Pauls

i just wanna know what kind of Les pauls you guys like...i'm talking Gibsons here too.

so far my personal favorite has been the junior special followed by the Gothic.

i actually haven't played a custom or a class 5 or an elegant yet.

i played the gothic studio...which i thought felt better than the standard.

and i loved the junior special...because it reminded me of an actual LP only with like half the weight...and the neck was so fast...yum.

it's called gothic because it's all black...seriously...very few people outside the guitar circle know what a Gibson Les Paul Studio Gothic is...

it's actually a decent guitar...and i like it better than the normal ebony black finish, because the mate black doesn't shine.

double cut-away; dc series (?).

Less weight, awesome finishes, almost the same thing as a standard (cept the looks, obviously)

i didn't get around to trying the double cut...but i noticed that it only has once volume/tone set instead of the two sets on normal LPs...anyone know what difference this makes?

in the LP Std
you can control volume and tone for each pickup independantly

on the DC
you can get either full neck pickup, mix 50/50 neck and bridge or pure bridge pickup
then you adjust the tone and volume for whatever you selected

just different routing
