naming anything, including yr pecker, is extremely gay.
I have an Epihone Les Paul clone. I call it, "My Guitar".
Don't own one. Can't play one. But I think they are badass guitars. The only other guitar that is more badass is a tie between a flying V or a SG.
SG wins out slightly because of Angus plays one....
What if someone names it for you?
So that is an obvious no......
And mine is named Sandel........
Careful, it's tied to my wife. (for real)
That works....I don't name all of them....
I love the Flying 'V'
the SG's are fun, great tone.....
Joe Perry Epi Les Paul.
'81 Les Paul Custom - TV Yellow. Unoffically named Mean Eugene when I was considering starting a band called Mean Eugene and the Stereophonic Bassethounds, but it never really took off.
i wanted to start a band called "Herbert Hoover and the Crash".
and no, i don't own one. i've always wanted a Strat (amurrican made)
I'm playin' an SG these days.
edit: to relate this post to the topic: I wouldn't mind having a Les Paul myself.
i'm a telecaster guy myself, 72 thinline reissue, and no, i've never named any of my guitars... i'm constantly fighting with the instrument and one of us is either bleeding or broken, we're not close enough for me to assign a name.
Not me.... jap strat and a "real" ES335
And where's you reply to my effects thread???
UH oh...effects thread, where be dat?
1983 Les Paul Standard Sunburst no name great guitar!
My guitar player plays a Les Paul custom. I'm not aware of any name being bestowed upon it though.
My band has two guitar players. One plays a blood red Les Paul Studio, the other plays a custom made strat style guitar made from Warmoth parts.
I don't think they's ever named their guitars.
bob mould represent:
ha, nice little twist to prevent off-site linkage.
albert bouchard represent:
Epiphone Les Paul sunburst and an agave blue telecaster from the early 90s...those are my boys
Oh, and a Seagull acoustic
I heard those are nice acoustics....
My Paul is a honeyburst
They have an incredible tone to them. Great little guitars.
And I'm digging the "Slash" style honeyburst.
Hers is actually a Heritage Cherry burst.
I got a MIJ Lespaul, that thankfully smoked most current production Gibsons i ve played. Still without a name...
I don't have a Les Paul, but I sure wish I had a Les Bian - you bet I'd name her!
SS plays guitar in his short shorts?
You learn something new every day.
Seagulls are great guitars for the money. As mine ages it keeps sounding better and better (which is true with any acoustic). I've played some $1000 Taylors that sound just as nice as my $300 Seagull.
Well, here is the update to the les Paul story. I used to have, and just got back from my brother ( That would be still have then doesnt it?) an 2001, Epiphone LTD Less Paul. Sweet guitar
..Now here is the kicker, I had 2 years earlier replaced the pickups with EMGs. The 81s and 85s, active
.essentially what they call the Zack Wylde set.
This thing is a BEAST!!! Ill get a pic of her posted later on
If you have an Epi Les Paul and want to kick it up a notch, get these pickups
OMG!! they are absolutely HUGE!!!
I'm always tempted to try the Zach W. LP. Now I'll have to take it down and give it a try. Sounds awesome.
There you have it.
For classic rock, the ZW isn't really the ticket. ZW is more for metal.
However, a fig top with 60's vintage top and SD APS-1 Alnico Pro II pickups will ROCK for classic rock etc style playing.
Burstbuckers are nice too...
Its funny you mentioned that, because the Burstbucker pickups are very versatile. I dare say, I can get a great metal tone out of them that sounds very close to the actives of the EMGs.
That is the one complaint I have heard about them (EMGs) is the fact that if played clear, they still want to scream on you. I have found no truth to that, as I ratchet back the gain on the amp considerably, otherwise, those pickups absolutely go nuclear!!
The fact remains though, those EMGs are made for killer distortion and response, and wreak havoc on preamps everywhere
The Zach Wylde Pauls are friggin sweet!!!!!! I only have one complaint about them, Id prefer to have a different color selection other than Zack Wylde colors and bulseye type guitar
.in other words, more finishes. I like the idea of the back of the neck not being lacquered, as the natural oils of the hand do a great job of making an unfinished neck silky smooth, and fast as hell.
The Epi plays real well, and for a smaller budget, that guitar with the EMGs and maybe some Schaller tuners, is an awesome substitute for a fraction of the cost. But dont believe everything you here, there is nothing like the original, and if you play one, you can just feel the difference in craftsmanship.
Id like to buy an older Paul and slap those EMGs in it
that would be fun.
What, I can't be metal?
The ZW can be for metal or rock....but the softer rock styles it can be a bit difficult to contain..However, I personally believe its not the pick-ups, its the player, because once you here the tone of the pick-ups through a good amp, one can loose control and go over the top rather quickly, something unheard of in guitar players
You're about as metal as Al Roker.
I love the BBs in my JP. Great tone out of them, and not nearly as muddy as some of the others out there.
Since I really don't play a lot of high distortion stuff, the EMGs would make life difficult for me and my mellowness.
The first time I heard that record was through Pantera's PA during sound check. It really must be experienced at very high volume.
as should this record:
You're one to talk Mr. Pop-rock himself
On my coffee table, I seem to recall seeing AC/DC, Aerosmith, Velvet Revolver and Guns 'N Roses tabs.
In your CD player I seem to recall Howie Day, the Calling, Michelle Branch and the complete collection of Billy Joel.
It doesn't get more pop than that
outed like N8!
