Towser83 Posted October 26, 2009 Report Share Posted October 26, 2009 Hey, was just wondering what people think of the Deluxe? I'm speaking more of the originals not the reissues. Are they seen as cheap, crappy Les Pauls or kind of cool variants? I've had my Les Paul Deluxe goldtop for 9 years and at the time I didn't really want a deluxe it just happened to suit me more than any other guitar I played (great action, lovely neck, beautiful sound etc). Then shortly afterwards I became a big Who fan and was amazed that Townshend played the Deluxes. Also people like Scott Gorham played them too, and although I love the look and sound of the minihumbuckers (in my mind they have a classic Les Paul sound on gain but crisper on clean sounds, less warm and jazzy which suits me nicely) I've never shaken the feel that I don't have a "proper" Les Paul. So I'm curious to what other people think. Who loves them, who hates them? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
