    Default Thoughts on the "Gibson Les Paul Standard TS Candy Tobacco Sunburst"

    Hi!

    I considering buying a Gibson Les Paul Standard TS. Any thoughts on whether it is worth the money? https://www.musicstore.de/en_NO/NOK/...GIT0032941-000

    Oh man that is beautiful! Not sure what 1300euros is in Canadian or US dollars but it looks so good and would sound perfect.

    As an owner of an Translucent Amber 2013 Les Paul Standard, I can say I love the heck out of my axe. Very well made, looks awesome, and is able to shake the walls if necessary.

    It IS expensive, that's true. But, it will last your whole life if you take care of it.

    Do it!

    The only thing I would want to let you know is that the Les Pauls are heavy guitars. Great sound, great quality but they weigh a fair bit if you are going to play for long periods of time standing, make sure you have a good strap.

    I actually never bought a les paul because of this, was too heavy / uncomfortable for me. Though I am a wuss!

    I have played a fair bit of LPs over the years. I now own Gibson 50s Tribute LP that has the cambered body. I know a lot of people didn't like the cambered body but it's a lot lighter than my Epiphone LP Standard, and still sounds great.

    I love the look and sound of an LP, but the weight does me in, too. I got rid of a nice BC Rich back in the day for the same reason. My back just couldn't take the strain, and neither are good to play in a sitting position.

    Les Paul Standards are very nice guitars, and I would never dissuade someone who wants to own one. However, I recently purchased a 2016 Gibson Les Paul Studio in Satin Fireburst and am very happy with the purchase. If you compare the specs of the 2016 Studio to a Standard, you will find it is very similar with only minor cosmetic differences besides the neck shape (the Standard has a teardrop shaped neck relief, while the Studio has a traditional guitar neck shape), and both guitars are manufactured in the USA. The biggest difference is the price. Here in Canada, Les Paul Standards start at around $2000, while I picked up my studio for under $1000.

    Anyways, I just thought I'd mention the 2016 Studio models as they really are a steal right now. However, you really can't go wrong with either choice.
