Versatile offshoot of the prototype

capmaster, 15.03.2013
The Gibson Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess is currently the only guitar available with piezoelectric pickups and a solid Floyd Rose vibrato system. The instrument, developed together with Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, is also used by Taylor Swift.

The custom black suitcase with facsimile signature by Alex Lifeson, made according to the label in the Staufach in Canada, is padded inside with purple plush. The guitar also fits in with a strap and straps - no problem with nitrocellulose leathers like the Levys MSS 3 TAN (item no. 193297).

The processing of the guitar is from the finest wood and lacquer. The point deduction is attributable to electromechanical faults which have not yet been eliminated in this price category.

Thanks to the neck profile and the Axcess shape, the instrument is extremely handy and outstandingly playable, which also contributes to the weight of 3.8 kilograms achieved without additional hollow chambers.

In addition to a Graph Tech-Floyd Rose vibrato with piezo pickups, the 496 T-Humbucker with ceramic magnet is used as a magnetic pickup in the neck position of the 496 T-Humbucker with AlNiCo V magnet. The electronics supplied by a 9-volt block battery are switched on when the socket labeled "Regular" is used. The active circuit requires only 1.35 milliampere. A typical alkaline-manganese 9-volt battery from the discounter with 500 ... 600 milliamperes should hold about 300 to 400 hours of game operation. At the "Regular" socket the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess can be operated mono or stereo. Stereo operation is also possible with a mono connection of the "Regular" and "Life-O-Sound" sockets.

The response and the vibration behavior of the instrument are beyond doubt. The sustain seems unimpressed by the lower frame and the vibratory system and evenly over all strings and layers.

The magnetic pickups 496 R and 498 T fit very well to this guitar. The possibility of parallel switching by push-pull potentiometers offers additional sound variants. In all settings, both magnetic pickups leave a good impression from completely undistorted to mercilessly driven amplifier. The tone is taut despite the mahogany-typically soft bass.

The Piezos bring a nearly perfect acoustic sound - it can hardly be better. In addition, there is the makellose intonation, which is not possible with a real full-resonance guitar without compensating bars. The vibrato effect is all the more striking.

If you play a chord slowly as a high-gain board with the foot pedals during the decay, and finally float in the ground via Floyd Rose-Dive Bomb when you change from the acoustically accompanied stanza to a solidly torn reef in the chorus or vice versa, Then you can feel that this instrument is more than ever an acoustic and electric guitar. It is rather like having both hands at the same time.

The Gibson Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess offers genuine Les Paul sound and the excellent vibrato system, the piezoelectric transducers and the possibility of parallel operation of the humbucker a lot more. Playability and handiness are excellent. The only drawback of this guitar is its price, even if it is fine and the price / performance ratio in view of the enormous versatility is in my opinion more favorable than with some other Gibson Custom models.

GIBSON LES PAUL Alex Lifeson AXCESS V

Jani9644, 07.01.2015
Playability excellent. The neck of a suitable thin, piezo microphone brings a lot of new
variations of the sound range. It is also very good mood.

However, a few screws here and there, curled loosely but after a slight adjustment in tip top player.
