So true, I have a Standard and a Studio and I feel more comfortable
with the Studio.

I don't know it just feels right and when I play it I can feel it resonating
and theres nothing like it

Now my 335 is a different story for a different thread

Not really...it was only 2 mins and you had to take your belt,rings or any jewlrey you wear wearing off. Just keep an eye open for small little guitar convetion, most of the time theres always one vintage les paul there!

I've owned every model of LP made. As much as I love my '08 Sunburst Standard, without a doubt the best EVER was my all gold 1955 goldtop Standard with wrap-around tailpiece. When it was stolen from my house in Northern California in a burglary in May of '04, it felt like someone ripped my heart out. I still haven't given up hope of finding it. Serial number is 5 6190.
If anyone has seen it, please contact me at barkingspiderrecords@yahoo.com
Thanks

For me, no question, the most iconic sound of all time - 1958 Les Paul Standard in Wine Red named "Lucy", given to George Harrison by Eric Clapton and played by Clapton on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". What with all the Beatles hoopla with Rockband right now, REISSUE THIS GUITAR GIBSON!! It will sell and be fabulous.

I have a Studio Gem ( anyone remember them ) with the pair of P90s - the neck on it is just a beautiful shape and the tone from them little pups - run that through my JVM410 head over 8 25 watt greenbacks - just gotta remember the transformer hum if you get too close to the head.

[biggrin] I like my White with gold hardware Les Paul Studio. It's got a Seymour Duncan AlNiCo II Pro in the neck, and a Seymour Duncan Custom 8 in the bridge. It's got oversized strap buttons and it's a 2006 model so it isn't as weight relieved as the later models. Also it has an Ebony fretboard. I also own two 2003 Les Paul Melody Makers with the P90s. Other Les Pauls I've owned include the DC Standard Transparent Amber Flame, Junior Special Plus Transparent Amber Flame, a couple of Juniors one single (gloss) one double cut (faded), a single (faded) and double cut (gloss) Special. But as I say I love the Special and prefer single cut guitars like the LP and my ES135.

correction, I love the Studio, not Special. A Freudian slip because I loved the Junior Special Plus.
