... and I was disappointed! Granted, I didn't try any high-end Gibsons. But I think I expected too much. I tried:
Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded: Good guitar, one of the best LPs I tried. It lacked what I was looking for though.
Gibson LP Studio: Good guitar too, but I did NOT like it at all. My friend who was with me FELL IN LOVE WITH IT haha.
Gibson LP Studio Raw Power: Now, if it wasn't for the looks, that's the LP I would buy. sounded good, and had some balls!
Epiphone LP Standard: Hated it. I didn't like the sound and it definately did not feel good.
Epiphone LP Custom 3 Pickups: Worst LP I tried.
Epiphone LP Custom: Not bad at all!
The reason I tried all of these is because, after playing on my friend's Hagstrom Ultra Swede, an LP shaped swedish guitar for €420, I felt like Slash. The guitar had attitude, sounded great, and played itself. I've never played a more melodic solo in my life* and thought I should try (and maybe buy) a Les Paul.
Anyways, since then, I've been suffering from MAJOR GAS and I need help!!! Its that time of my life again. I NEED A NEW GUITAR! Ive been in Germany for 6 months now, and I've only got my RG with me. Not even an acoustic!
*Video of that is here. I dont start till 3:30. Ignore few mess ups
