Un Must....

Monsieur N., 11.05.2011
Avant tout, je suis gaucher, donc... ma vie de guitariste peut être bien frustrante par moment...

J'ai décidé de m'offrir cette merveille il y a 2 ans. j'en rêvais depuis 1991, date ou j'ai pu en essayer une et ne pensait pas pouvoir recommencer un jour !. Impossible de la trouver rapidement en France, en tous cas rapidement, car le simple fait de s'annoncer gaucher fatigue bien souvent les vendeurs...

Arrivée par UPS dans les délais annoncés, un emballage très sérieux (et surtout très rassurant), j'ai déballé celle que Les Paul appelait "The fretless wonder". Cette guitare est autant un bijou qu'un instrument !

Coté luthrie :
- que du bon... finition impeccable, verni "Gloss" nitro-cellulose, touche ébène, insert en nacre véritable (classique des modèles Custom), corps acajou et table érable sculpté : attention, elle pèse son poids !!

Coté sons :
- Vous pourrez TOUT jouer avec cette guitare à condition d'aimer le son d'un double bobinage !! Une énorme chaleur provenant des Humbucker, une véritable résonance qui parcourt tout l'instrument et un sustain quasi infini. La guitare est livré en 10/46 réglé très prêt du manche, idéal pour un jeu rapide et précis. Un diapason qui autorise des bends plus facilement que sur une Stratocaster (que j'adore également, mais ça c'est une autre histoire...).
tenue d'accord irréprochable. Très agréable à jouer.

Coté sensations:
- En dehors du fait de jouer sur une guitare légendaire (on aime ça, nous, les guitaristes !), j'ai coutume de dire, sans vouloir me lancer dans des considérations prosaïques, qu'une Les Paul n'est pas faite pour le guitariste. C'est au guitariste de se faire à la Les Paul (voilà mon humble avis sur la question).
Pour les adepte des Fender, le poids et l'absence de découpe stomacale se font cruellement sentir... Si vous acceptez ces conditions, il vous sera difficile de ne pas tomber sous le charme.

Entretien :
Cette guitare à les défauts de ses qualités : il vaut mieux être très soigneux avec carte le verni est très fragile et révèle le moindre impact ou rayure.

Lorsque je joue avec, elle me procure toujours la même sensation de "Guitare-au-dessus-des-guitares".

Je suis influencé, certes, mais... vous verrez...

P-Project, 17.07.2013
This is a review of a Les Paul Custom Apline White purchased from Thomann.

Firstly the service from Thomann was excellent. Very helpful communication by phone and email and a 4 day delivery time to the UK. The guitar arrived nicely packaged. I have bought from Thomann on 4 occasions now and have always
had excellent service.

Back to the guitar.

Box/Case/Guitar:
The guitar came in a sealed boxed that I think had not be opened since it left the factory in the USA. Inside was the newer Custom tan case and custom shop certificate passport. I think I prefer the older black cases but that just my opinion. The case doesnt include any candy at all. No lead,stickers,cloth etc. I like this though. Just minimal splendour. I love the Apline White finish with Gold Hardware. It's a fine looking instrument.

Build/Fit/Finish Quality:
Having watched how Gibson builds guitars on YouTube and in particular the Les Paul Custom I was impressed with the build quality and finish. I know that a lot of the build is done by hand. The binding in particualr is a highly skilled process. I also know that the white nitro finish is a demanding process as white shows all airbourne impurities when spraying. I couldn't find any flaws at all in the finish. All the hardware was fitted nicely. There is a sense of "by hand" craftsman ship with this guitar. They will all be slighly different and unique. I like that.

The only one minor "flaw" I noticed is that there must be a tiny piece of dust/wood shaving in the chamber cavity. There's a very slight noise of something moving around in there. It's not too audible and doesnt impact playing at all. I will class this as a personality trait.

Setup/Playing experience.
The out of box set-up was suprisingly perfect to my taste. The action was perfect, the fretword immaculate. It was nice to see fine tooling marks where the binding on the end of the frets had been dressed by hand. The guitar has good intonation and is resonant. The pickups were set up with good balance. This guitar plays like butter.

Sound: Im not going to be able to describe this well. Sound is too subjective. To my ears the the Custom has a wide array of sounds in the 3 pickup positions.
All genres of music could be played on this from Jazz to Metal. The tone pots are very usuable and offer a lot of variation. I have 3 Les Pauls. A 2008 Standard and Les Paul Deluxe and now the Custom. They all sound different but fabulous. I would say the Custom has a more varied musical range of tones.

Richlite v Ebony - the big debate: Initially I was a purist Ebony fan. But common sense took over. I've played a few guitars (mainly acoustics) with Richlite and cannot fault it.

My guitar has a Richlite board (calm down its ok) and I think its a fine material. Yes its not organic or as aesthetically pleasing as Ebony but as functioning material I cant fault it. It looks nice, solid, stable and jet black and plays very smoothly.

Summary:
The Custom is an outstanding instrument. It's a privelege to own and play. I would recommend trying one. Once bitten forever smitten though.

Had the 2013 model for a year and a half now, and I wouldn't part with it for anything. The fat, juicy sound characteristic of a Les Paul combined with the impeccable craftsmanship of a Gibson Custom are worth the high price. And for me personally, this guitar has a certain character that I couldn't find in other quality guitars I have owned.

The finishing job on this guitar is far from satisfactory. There are issues with it all over the place. Just to name a few: on the neck binding, all around where neck meets body, and black is missing altogether where the neck pickup and fretboard meet (which up close is quite ugly). At this price level, I would expect much better from Gibson. I used to own a 2001 Les Paul Studio which had no such issues at all, so for a Custom to have them caught me completely by surprise.

Having said all that, I simply couldn't bring myself to return it. The setup was damn perfect straight out of the case, and the guitar feels silky smooth and gorgeous to play. And the more I play it, the more the sound and sustain on this thing just blow my mind. In short, too good to return, and I didn't care to risk sacrificing the amazing sound and playability for a nicer finish. After all, you're supposed to play the thing, not look at it.

As always, customer support at Thomann was excellent, as was the pricing in comparison to other stores.

This is without doubt, the best guitar I have ever bought (or rather my wife bought for me)!

The Les Paul Custom is such an iconic guitar and from the moment I opened up the case, I felt like I had purchased a piece of musical history!

Sound wise, the pick ups deliver a rich, warm sound, typical of Les Pauls and it sound great in a variety of different amps. This guitar is, however, very heavy, so be warned. I would advise buying a decent strap and strap locks for confort and safety!

The neck is nice and chunky as a Les Paul should be, I would say it feels like somewhere between a 50s and 60s style neck.

You will struggle to find a better guitar than this!
