  1. In Topic:"Best" Les Pauls

    Yesterday, 11:53 PM

    I would have thought a Vintage 1959 with original PAF's.

    Other than that I think it gets subjective. Although many say some of the the 90's & 2000's are some of the best ever.

    I have a 2001 Gibson LP Std Plus AA & a 2013 Gibson LP Jr. special w/P90's that are pretty amazing Guitars.

    Alright Lars - congrats. Sweetwater is great to deal with so I'm sure your guitar will arrive in wonderful condition and well set up.

    Make sure to post up some pics when it arrives. [thumbup]

    Thanks,

    Sweetwater is excellent to purchase from, now the wait. :) I think the ES is a great choice, I find the ES-LP just a pleasure to play I have been playing my 14 for a couple years and its quite a good playing feeling and sounding electric. Between a LP and the ES theres a difference as there is with any Gibson ES and LP. But that said its a close offering with a nice twist to the manufacturing with feel tone and looks.

    The biggest difference I notice between 14 and 16 is the C-shape neck. Both are nice but the C-shape simply fits me better than any Gibson neck profile I have played, so I know this is very subjective, another pet peeve of mine has always been weight since I started out playing a 14 lb Gretsch live as a youth which changed my thinking a long time ago with weight, I dont think any ES-LP weights 7 lbs most are high 5 to mid 6. That is the major noticable difference in 14 and 16 to me which I feel and notice, the 59 is close and this same point is also true on my LPs as with the ES. Same difference with the necks. The difference between the years may be as little as that to a player.

    Good luck let us know how you like it when its arrives.


    Weight has become a big deal to me too. Playing long periods with heavy Guitars doesn't work for me anymore. This new one weighs 5lbs. 13oz. With a B7 Bigsby it should still be between 6 1/2 - 7lbs. I may sell my near mint '90's Gibson LP Std Plus & or my like new mint 2013 Gibson ES335. Not sure yet? Will definitely post an NGD!

    Thanks to all for the advice,

    Lars
  5. In Topic:Tinnitus and hearing damage

    Seems I've had it for as long as I can remember even when I was a little kid.

    I read recently that Science now believes it's possible you can be born with it. It may have something to do with electrical impulses in the Synapse's in the Brain.

    Would be great if they could figure out a remedy or a Cure.

    How do you like your Texan? I got mine on resting on a Guitar Stand sitting across from my Gibson J160E. I play them both equally. The Texan is great! Love it.

    Hi just to let you know that it was your thread that encouraged me to get the Texan. Thanks
