The Les Paul is well established in the classic rock genre. The classic British blues-rock has been shaped almost entirely by this instrument’s unique sound. Other rock that needs a thick, rich tone and playability as well as good sustainability is easily played on the Gibson Les Paul.
This guitar can be used for much more than rock. The solid-body Gibson Les Paul first appeared some fifty five years ago and has since showed that it can play near everything. Whether you’re a beginner who’s just starting out with a new guitar or a guitar aficionado who appreciates classic beauty, the Les Paul will appeal to you. Here are just a few reasons why the Les Paul is such a cult favorite amongst professionals and amateurs alike.
1. The Les Paul makes it easy to get to those high notes without too much effort, compared to standard guitar that have any kind of mobile bridges (such as the standard tremolo, floyd rose etc)
2. Not belying the presence of two humbucking pick ups you can receive a wonderfully clean note on your Les Paul
3. With the Tune-o-Matic bridge, you don’t have to worry about your Les Paul going out of tune during the middle of a gig.
4. The versatility of the Les Paul makes it suitable for virtually any genre of music, ranging from rock to heavy metal to rock and pop and everything in between.
