His posts in the Epiphone forum now are a lot milder. His mom must have gotten mad at him and told him to behave. . .

That's progress, I suppose. If he could just stop using the smiley with the tongue, it would be even better!

Far and away the best Les Paul I ever played was my 25th Anniversary Les Paul.
I stupidly sold it years ago, hope it went to a good home.

For me, the best model Les Pauls are the chambered LP Classics. I play rock and dig the higher output pickups and thinner neck profile. It doesn't weigh much and balance is no issue. Finally, it fit my budget better than most LPs. ;)

Any fans of the 1979 Les Paul KM? I remember playing one of these new as 14-year old in a music store, and it was life changing.

Les Paul KM (“Kalamazoo Model”) -- The Les Paul KM model was made in the Kalamazoo plant in 1979, supposedly at the request of a southern sales district. The guitar was intended be a sunburst Les Paul that more closely approximated ’59 Standard specs. The guitar has exposed-coil, double-cream, T-top humbuckers, speed knobs, large, black side dot markers, a Nashville bridge, stop tailpiece, Grover tuners, wide binding in the cutaway, brown backplates, and “Les Paul K. M. ” engraved on the truss rod cover. The guitar has an unusually wide headstock and a volute and three-piece mahogany neck. The Gibson logo on the headstock has a closed “b” and “o,” and no dot above the “i. ” The first run had a “Custom Made” plaque loose in the case or mounted below the tailpiece. The guitar was available in Antique Sunburst, Natural, or Cherry Sunburst finish. Some flametops were reportedly made. A total of approximately 1,500 Les Paul KMs were made.

'60 Standard. Actually, the R0's are probably better, just not worth as much.

I recently bought a 2016 Swamp Ash les paul from American musical Supply and really like it. have not owned a Gibson for 40 years (sold my 65 SG in 1981 and bought a Takamine EF 360S which I still own). This is a very heavy Gibson and with a Bigsby is like throwing a cross tie over my shoulder but it really sounds and plays well.

Pick a STANDARD, any STANDARD. Treat it right..... it will do you right....... for decades.

The poor guy with the Ultima II Quilt-Flame/Top.......it must really suck having to guard that thing.

It's a very personal thing, I reckon.
Whatever feels good to you, and that which turns your head, won't necessarily do anything for me or the next guy.

I have owned a few Gibson Les Pauls over the years.

1971 Les Paul Deluxe, Gold top, from 1976 until 1978.

1996 Les Paul Studio, Ebony, from 1996 until 2012.

2001 Les Paul Studio, Copper Top, from 2013 until 2016.

2013 Les Paul Sully Erna Signature, Ebony with pearloid sun, acquired in 2017, still own it and play it.

2018 Les Paul Faded, Worn Bourbon finish, bought brand new last year, still own it and play it.

I love them all, and can't honestly say which one is my favorite, nor which one is 'the best'.
It's like any of us loving women, and having different wives and lovers over the years.
They all had their awesome qualities, and I loved each in their own way, but none were the very best of the lot.

Am I alone in this?
