The finest Les Paul was and is the 1970s Les Paul recording, Les himself used one for many years.

I have one and can get absolutely ANY tone out of it I want.

Can't find fault here
I have a '69 Professional that cuts rings around any other guitar I've ever owned

:-" I personally love all LesPauls ever since the first time I ever saw one in 1975. You have to play what ever feels the best and sounds the best for you. For it is my 04' Les Paul 1959 Historic, R9. I feel like it was custom made just for me! The bigger the necks the better. Give mine a listen at www.myspace.com/srprules. That is my band SRP from Detroit. Thanks and Rock on. Peace

I've played many different Les Paul models and my favorite hands down is the 57' Custom Black Beauty!!!

Like so many others it's got to be the one that you feel best about -

For me it's my '71 Les Paul Recording model. I actually had the privelege to have it played and autographed by Les himself before he passed away. Similar to what he was using at The Iridium in NYC. I don't ahve a Bigsby as he did and mine is the very dark wood where his was more blonde. It was terrific to have hime play it for a few minutes and then autograph it for me - not only do I ahve the instrument but I had a friend take a oicture of him signing it and I then had an opportunity to have Les autograph the photo.

I still take it out for shows (rarely) but needless to say it's one of my most prized axes.

Have to admit that the LP classic antique is the best kept secret from LP lovers : '57 pick ups, lightweight body, low price, great finish, built in limited quantities during '07 and '08, ...

I'm actually seeking for one these days.

Actually, it's a "Honeyburst" Classic, that I bought new, at "Norm's Rare Guitars,"
in Tarzana, California...in 1999.

It all depends. Are we looking for appearence? Or are we looking for playing?

Honestly, I believe the Studio is the best guitar for the money. Paying an extra $600 for binding doesn't seem worth it when the tonewoods and electronics are the same.

However, I love the way a Standard looks.

Soo.....

I'd buy a used Standard versus a new Studio...

But as far as $$$, I'd be happy with a Studio in Desert Burst with gold hardware....

I choose my 2008 standard :-). It came with a perfect set up. The asymetrick neck on it is the best gibson have made, and i like the new tuners and the tonepros brigde.The Burstbucker pros pickups sound great in this les paul. The herritage cherry finnish looks just perfeckt. I like it without the pickguard to. Posted Image
