For devoted Gibson Les Paul aficionados, ’50s Standards are, well, the “gold standard.” A 1958 or 1959 sunburst is an instrument of sublime beauty, and models in exceptional shape command astronomical prices. The Gibson Les Paul Standard ’50s Limited Edition evokes the look, feel and sound of these near-unobtainable treasures, and puts the magic into your hands. This celebration of an iconic Les Paul era features a solid mahogany body, plain maple top, rounded-C mahogany neck, 12″ radius rosewood fretboard, 22 medium-jumbo frets and Burstbucker 1 (neck) and Burstbucker 2 (bridge) humbuckers.

“Players such as Jimmy Page and Warren Haynes inspired me to pick up a Les Paul,” says Los Angeles guitarist, educator and leader of her own band, Angela Petrilli. “I have a ’59 reissue back home that I absolutely love. Les Pauls are incredibly resonant instruments. You can strum them and get a beautiful rhythm with a big, all-encompassing tone, but you can also get a screaming lead sound if you hit an overdrive pedal. When I play in the rhythm position of a Les Paul, I’m looking for something that is well rounded with a lot of character, but still has enough bite to cut through a mix. In the bridge position, I look for something that really cuts. This guitar gives me the tones I would expect from a ’50s Les Paul Standard.”

You are welcome to ask any questions about the items for sale on my sales page, I will try to answer as soon as I can. Please understand that I can not take the time anymore to answer questions like “Do you think Mexican Fenders are better than Korean Epiphones” or “What’s your favourite stompbox under $ 100?” and other general gear-questions. I understand that the casual and informal way of internet communication is inviting to ask anything you ever wanted to know about guitars. However, I get about 150 emails a day (!) just like these, it would take many hours each day just to respond to all these general questions. That is simply impossible to do. However, questions related to items on my inventory I’ll try to answer quickly

Allgemeine Fragen zu Gitarren und Amps:
Inzwischen habe ich über 10000 Gitarrenvideos erstellt, und die Leute denken natürlich nicht ganz zu Unrecht: “Der kann mir sicher ein paar gute Tipps geben”, oder immer beliebter: Fragen beantworten, zu einer Gitarre, die gerade günstig bei Ebay ersteigert wurde und etwas merkwürdig aussieht… Das Problem ist allerdings, dass ich inzwischen jeden Tag an die 150 derartige Mails mit allgemeinen Fragen aus der ganzen Welt bekomme… (“welche Epiphone kannst Du empfehlen…, “…was ist der Unterschied zwischen einer Custom-Shop-Les-Paul und einer normalen…”, “..welche Strat-Pickups soll ich in meine Road-Worn einbauen”, “..was ist der Unterschied zwischen einer Vintage-Fender/Gibson und einer Reissue ..”.
Ich habe eine ganze Zeit jeden Tag solche Mails beantwortet – und im Einzelfall wäre dies auch kein Problem. Aber, sorry, in diesem Umfang geht das leider nicht mehr! Nehmt es also bitte nicht persönlich wenn ich solche allgemeinen Fragen deshalb grundsätzlich nicht beantworten kann! vieles steht bereits in den “FAQ” Seiten

Spezielle Fragen zum Equipment in meinem Shop beantworte ich natürlich weiterhin gerne. Bei umfassenden Fragen/Beratungen gerne auch telefonisch. Und ich bekomme so auch einen viel besseren Eindruck über die Wünsche und Vorstellungen des Kunden weil man direkt auch gezielt nachfragen-, Empfehlungen geben kann etc. . Am WE oder abends anrufen ist auch kein Problem – nur in der Mittagszeit von 12:00 bis 14:30 bin in nicht erreichbar!
