NGD: Gibson Les Paul 2013 Traditional

Ever since I'd got my hands on a 59 Les Paul a few months back, I'd had a major case of GAS for an LP.

Well today I kinda got one as a bit of a birthday gift from my old man. He;s currently looking for an R9 so this traditional is living at his house until that one arrives (not that he knows that), so I'm counting the days now

We tried a few along with a reissue 58 and 59, which were both really nice but not quite "the one". This was the pick of the traditional bunch. Was a nice middle ground weight wise which I was surprised about as I expected them to be all the same, but some were very rear heavy and wanted to fall off your knee when sat with them, there was a lot of variation.

Plus as a bonus it was probably my favourite of the colours and is just an all round solid LP.

The flame looks pretty plane from straight on, but pops out when you see it from the front.

Re: NGD: Gibson Les Paul 2013 Traditional

No worries, I've become the same over the last few months.

I always liked how they looked and thought they sounded great, but never really "got them" so to speak. But after spending a bit of time recently playing quite a few of them I kinda got the bug and was desperate for one

At least now maybe my better half will stop calling me a nerd for spending all my time looking at them on ebay and websites

On a side note, I never thought my JS1000 or JP6 neck was as thin as they were until I played them straight after the 50's style baseball bat on this thing

Likewise. When I first got my LP I couldn't put it down for months. The only thing that stopped me was a PRS.

Nice guitar... Congrats!! I just love the solid feel and shorter scale of mine... even though it is a little worn out and beat up. Great playing guitars!

Re: NGD: Gibson Les Paul 2013 Traditional

I have been a Jem addict for quite a long time, but I bought a LP in January and now I became a LP fan too!

I was looking for a trad as yours (not to much red, honey-burst) and tried one in the shop along with a Gary Moore 2013 LP. I finally bought the Gary Moore, because although the Trad was aesthetically nicer because of the bindings, the burstbuckers and the orange drop capacitors did the job better to my rock and roll biased ears.

Enjoy!

I have the Gary Moore LP stated above and a friend of mine has a PRS (don't know the model) but one of those LP shaped that made Gibson demmand PRS. Both are great axes, but the acces to the upper frets on the PRS is way better. He has been always a wizard lover, but that PRS has made him left down that nice 777vsk he owns since 1989.

Finally the guitar that has made me slow down the fret degrading on my LP is... my refretted 7VWH!

If you want to see shredding on LP check out these band: Cactus Cruz
