The Gibson Les Paul guitar has to be one of my absolute favorite instruments and all of existence. These guitars are so versatile and give you great tone for pretty much any style of music. They have a nice soulful tone that is extremely warm and inviting to play. Many of the sounds of you get out of Les Paul I going to be thick and warm primarily because of the mahogany wood that is used throughout the axe. These guitars have pretty much exclusively used mahogany in the body and in the neck with a rosewood fretboard. Some models do feature a maple top, such as a flame to maple top or equal to maple top. Many of those guitars are the custom or the standard type Gibson Les Paul instruments. Where you don't see that featured is in the goal top instruments that to me sound a little bit more girthy and thick.

These guitars have a great thick warm tone that sounds fantastic in pretty much any style of music you can imagine. They have such a very warm and open sound that pretty much gives the user a great starting tone. Everything starts really from the fingertips and the pick but your next line of tone comes from your guitar. If you don't have a great guitar then you're really not can have the best option to get a great tone. When you start with a guitar like a Gibson Les Paul Custom you can create a tone that can be very resident and warm sounding. This guitars sound very thick , articulate and dynamic as well. Overall they are great sounding instruments and when you couple them with a nice high gain amplifier you're really got to find out what these guitars are all about.


I highly recommend guitars to anyone looking for that perfect tone as can be extremely versatile and sound good and whatever music you're playing. They can be found very easily in most retailers around the world and pretty much every online is it shop you can find. I would recommend getting one used in trying it out first because you can allow that initial person to buy the guitar and take the hit on the new price. So if you can get in there with the use price point , you're going to find yourself in a much better financial position. Plus Gibby Les Pauls can feel different from one another so I highly suggest trying one first before purchasing.
