Fell in love with Les Paul 60's Tribute (Lefty)

I recently traded in my very nice 2008 Fender Strat Deluxe Sunburst at Guitar Center for a Gibson Les Paul 60's Tribute Lefty Honeyburst !!!! [thumbup][love]

 

I tried to part with the guitar due to finances BUT ... I just played it and I was astonished by the sound ... I was playing high on the neck and the notes were flying and the fretboard is high at this time!!!

 

After I went up and talked with my lovely spouse, Kaya, and we decided that we will get the money from somewhere else !!!!!

 

This guitar inspires me !! And I'm going to learn slide !!

Great to hear a good experience.

I’m kind of mixed about them; played one unplugged and felt it was not Gibson’s best.

But one thing I think that I like is the Gibson P90 sound, very nice.

 

My questions-

 

Does one, two, or three piece bodies really matter-

Which one is best, being a chambered guitar?

What’s a good weight to get, a light or a heavy one?

 

I have to get the money too from somewhere----

I personally feel that the chambered bodies vary alot more than the weight releived bodies (swiss cheese)

 

I played a 60's tribute I absolutely loved the P90's but the guitar did not resonate well. Harmonics were dead and it had no balls but then the guy in the next sound booth had a righty version that sounded alot better than the lefty one I tried.

 

I'm a lefty too i know how it feels to actually play a guitar in the shop an then to fall in love with it. I got 2 impulse guitars that way, my Schecter C1 Custom limited edition and my favourite of all my les Paul Traditional in Ebony. I had to find the money too. I personally feel that us left handers suffer more from GAS then our right handed counterparts!

I'm not sure about the body questions. Yhis is the first and only Les Paul that I have played and could afford? I don't know how a $2-3000 Les Paul would feel, play, or respond.

 

The main reason that I got this to try out was it was right price. I traded my strat and an extra $45 to get it. Also, I really wanted a Lefty Epi Casino (w/P90's) and they don't make them anymore!!

 

I beleive with this Les Paul (with P90's) and my Epi Dot cherry (with Humbuckers), I got it covered now !!!

 

I'm really happy with it especially the P90's !! [biggrin]
