Thinking about getting one. How many of you have it? Pros/Cons.
More affordable than an LP Standard...go for it.
Les paul classic in 2014.
Has specs that are anything but.
I noticed that. I'm a HUGE fan of the SG's. I got 2 but need to add a LP. It would be a "Guitar Sin" not to have one.
Despite the limiting upper fret access which is not so limiting once you position your fretting hand right, Les Pauls are better balanced than an SG believe it or not. That's why I own 2 Les Pauls and only one SG.
Not a big fan of the boost switch replacing one of the tone knobs
I can't comment on the new ones, but the Classic has always been a great Les Paul..
My '92 Classic + guitars...........
huh, I always thought you preferred SG's to LP's.
The 2014 Classic looks to have gone in a totally different direction from previous models … honestly, for a first LP I think I'd look elsewhere.
The fireburst Studio Pro looks pretty sweet.
That new 'studio' with a p90 in the neck and a bucker in the bridge looks pretty sweet
I really like most of the 2014 range, but I'm not a fan of having that little switch in place of the treble tone pot. I'd rather them have put a dummy knob with a push pull knob there.
how are the older models ? like 05' Classics I seen one listed this week in GoldTop and thought it looked great! but the real question does it SOUND GREAT?
I like the new classics, I think the added some interesting features. Not a "classic design though...
I still like SG's and I love my black SG...I would never sell it. But after playing over 25 years and finally not buying one, but 2 Les Pauls earlier last year for the first time, I'm really digging the shape and balance of these guitars. The upper fret access on my SG I find too easy and uninspiring. On a Les Paul, you have to work at it a bit more and when you position your hand the correct way, upper fret access doesn't seem so much of a challenge like many profess there is. It sounds strange, but I find a Les Paul more rewarding to play on. I would still like to get another SG, but one that speaks to me. Maybe an SG with P90's like a 60's Tribute (in black). I also have a craving to buy another Les Paul guitar. I don't know if the 2014 LP Classics have P90's, but I sure wouldn't mind owning this beauty...an ebony LP Custom Classic with P90's.
Saw Rob Chappers do a demo of this baby on a Marshall AFD, I was very impressed.....
i have the exact same half stack. fantastic.
I really don't want to squelch anyone's desire to buy a new piece of gear, but the Les Paul Classic came and went. And now, I have no idea WTF this new version is supposed to be... it's not a Classic, it's something else. It doesn't have four knobs, it's got some kind of tit-switch. What about that is "classic" on a Les Paul?
My opinion? Avoid this temporary marketing BS, and get yourself either w Trasitional or a Standard. Preferably a Traditional.
