2000 Gibson Les Paul Classic


The second guitar I ever owned. It was quite an improvement over the MIM Fender Stratocaster I was playing. Since it is a Classic model there is no chambering or weight relief with this guitar, which just gives it an even heavier, more powerful sound. The pickups have recently been replaced with a Burstbucker 1 in the neck and a Burstbucker 2 in the bridge. A major improvement in tone - more clarity and highs. It sounds much more like a vintage Les Paul now.
