Sugarray Posted December 9, 2009 Report Share Posted December 9, 2009 Hey guys. I’m new in this forum. I’m looking for the best LP for me, but I’m not sure I know which one it is. Furthermore there are a lot of terms I don’t know the meaning of. Ill write all my questions here and I hope you guys will help me making the right decision. Sorry if my spelling isen´t too good. I wan’t a beautiful LP which can be usefull in many years, at the same time it may be good looking at the wall. I’m pretty confused about these terms: Standart, Traditional, Custom – Someone told me that there were two kind of custom which confused me even more… someone who can explain? The highest price I’m willing to pay is around 9000 dollars The first guitar iv been concidering is this on: http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Les-Paul/Gibson-Custom/1957-Les-Paul-Custom-2-PU-VOS.aspx The describsion says that its non-weight relieved body – what does that mean? How do you think about the neck profile (the thickness)? Weight compared to the other two? And what about the sound compared to the other two posted next? The next one is: http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Les-Paul/Gibson-Custom/Les-Paul-Custom.aspx How is this one compared to the first one if we’re talking about the weight and the thickness of the neck. Would you prefer this one or the first one? And why? The last one is: http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Les-Paul/Gibson-Custom/50th-Anniversary-1959-Les-Paul-Standard.aspx or the reissue (tell me which one of these two you prefer) The decribsion talks about “one-piece lightweight mahogany body – and what is that? Did they use that in 1959? How is the 1959 neck different from the other? Generel questions: Neck profiles – which type of neck is best to rock music – im thinking which neck profile would Slash, Joe Perry and Heatfield choose? – How many different kinds of neck profiles are available? Which of these mentioned guitars would you prefer and why? Any other suggestions to the ultimate LP? I know I sound like a newbie, and actually I am. Some of you may think why such an ignorant idiot like me want an LP. – Well that’s because I cant live without one ? Anyway I hope you will help me the best way you can.
