User Review

very nice - Reviews Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded 2011

Common features of the Les Paul Standard, except that like all Studio, there is no table in maple reported.
The finish is matte, so we like it or not but I love: already more pleasant to the touch is a varnish that sticks and then it gives a really good vintage charm ...
No frills but then finiton is exemplary, it is a quality instrument.

UTILIZATION

The guitar is quite light, which is due to the lack of table in maple and cavities formed in the body.
The handle is nice, as satin, it slides on its own. It is relatively thick, but as I have big feet, it suits me perfectly.
The frets are well finished, and it's probably just an impression but I had the feeling that they are thinner than the usual medium jumbo.

SOUNDS

Tested in the store (it is not for me) on a Fender G-Dec (I unfortunately could not try it on a good Marshall tube).
I played just after trying a beautiful Les Paul Reissue 58 to sound and look to fall (as the price of close to 3000 euros).
I was expecting to be disappointed ...
Well, I was very pleasantly surprised! In addition to being fun to play, it has a well roots, rougher than a Standard Studio or more expensive.
The bridge pickup only ask one thing: that he enters the bacon!
A really big hearts to play bluesy riffs or plans for hard-rock AC / DC.

OVERALL OPINION

Few Les Paul that I already had in hand, it is certainly one that gave me most pleasure.
It is 700 euros ... at that price, it becomes downright irresistible!
I think I'm going to blow up the ...
