Re: So who here is into Les Pauls?
I'm a bit weird when it comes to LP's. Some are really nice looking, but the playability (especially at the top of the neck) I find completely off-putting. I think it's a guitar that I would like to own if I had a ton of others, but if I could only own a Les Paul and nothing else I wouldn't be happy. The weight is also something that would get on my nerves after a while. One of the reasons I sold my RG3120 was the weight. Coming from using lighter guitars such as the RG550 and RG750 to an RG3120 was not easy. I never used it in live situation, and I am glad I didn't because it would have made my shoulder ache for a week. I used a Les Paul in some rehearsals a while back and tried to do a solo but I had to switch back to the RG because the LP just couldn't get the job done.
So, heavy and limiting, but occasionally quite pretty... it's just not for me.
