Check out my Les Paul - Can you say "Lawsuit?"

Sort of an impulse bid/buy...

http://jemsiteforum.com/sharefiles/i...Les%20Paul.JPG

Notice the nice, familiar name on the headstock? *Yep, an Ibanez "Lawsuit" LP. *I had a nice newish LP Classic Plus, but it never felt or sounded right. *Spotted this at around 1/4 the price...kinda had that Mick Ronson look to it, so I made the fatal click. *

Just arrived, and I can't believe how much I like it. *I'm not really a"Gibson guy," except for the fact that my first electric was an old SG Special...have long since moved on to primarily Ibanez. *Anyway, it feels and plays great, much like Artists I've played. *The back is brown stained and it has a bolt neck. *Average weight, a few "character" dings and replaced parts, and great sounding pups. *In fact, I'm going to pull the buckers off and see if I can tell what they are...surprisingly nice sounding. *Oh well, had to share the latest with my buds.

Wow... very cool. At first i thought, "awesome... Greg's picked up a Raw Power Les Paul." But then i squinted at the headstock and recognized the lawsuit-era Ibanez script.

There are only a few finishes i really like on a Les Paul (including deep wine, faded honey burst and tiger eye), and the natural look is right up there. Nice find! Too bad it doesn't have a set neck for that true Les Paul tone.

Yeah, set neck would be nice...but the thing plays so good, I guess I can live with the bolt.

Thanks, spiro. *6! *That's great...any pics? *I actually just ordered a flame top sunburst Electra (I guess I'm on *a "kick")...from what I've seen it look just like the Ibanez copies. *Any idea if it's the same factory?

As a dedicated Gibson LP player I must agree. *The quality and playability of these guitars is comparable to a real Gibson Les Paul. *A perfect alternative if you are on a budget. *Better than an Epiphone LP IMHO.
