    The Gibson Les Paul Standard Std Plus Left Handed

    I've always wanted a Les Paul Standard, and the fact that Sweetwater.com had the the Premium Plus model in the color I've always loved was too good to be true. I talked to Aaron Regenold about this prized axe, and mentioned to him my concerns regarding QC. He assured me that all guitars go through a 55 pnt inspection, and if there were any issues, there's a 30 day return policy.

    So I took the chance, and a week later I'm at Fed Ex picking up my new guitar. Brought it home, did a complete set up, made some minor adjustments.... I have to say, money well spent!!!! Classic standard sound, massive sustain, great tones, fast action, and I love the pull/push coil taps!!!!

    Dealing with Aaron was awesome, and I will be giving him first dibs on any of my future gear purchases. Thanks again guys, you made one of my dreams come true!!!!

    gibson les paul standard premium plus left handed trans black

    i am a new player. only 1 yr and 9 mo. however, i own a fender standard strat which i really love. i purchased the gibson les paul standard premium plus lh in trans black which looks and sounds awesome. however, i actually perfer the smooth feel of the fender for slides and movement up and down the neck. :o/ also i agree with previous review about the knobs. although i didnt realize they were backwards for a left handed player, i knew i kept turning them the wrong way because i was used to the FENDER, which had them properly applied to a leftie. (the whole world is geared to right handed people) BUT, in spite of those two objections, i love the sound i get from this guitar!! i know i am relatively new at this craft, but i love playing this so much, i practice every single day for at least 1 hr. and i see fairly rapid progress. i think if a person wants to learn to play the guitar, they should commit to it by purchasing a good quality insturment and the respect for such a beautiful guitar will provide incentive to stick with it thru the crappy playing stage which EVERYONE must go thru to get to the other side of musical skill on the guitar. i love my gibson les paul standard premium plus in trans black, but i also love my fender standard strat equally. they each have their attributes.

    Les Paul Premium Plus

    Well` I've owned this great guitar for a couple of weeks now. The quality of the instrument is great and the burstbucker pros are turning out to be very impressive.

    My only disappointment is the lack of fore-thought in the control orientation. It seems that Gibson in all their wisdom, has decided that it would be cheaper to use right hand control rotation on the left handed guitars ALSO! Meaning that your volume and tone controls will roll backwards. Seeing as they now use a PCB to mount their potentiometers to, you can't reverse the leads to correct this. Somewhat disappointing considering the money spent. Gibson: Please call Fender and have them help you remove your head from your ass. Fender does not make such mistakes in considering the player. Don't get me wrong....it truly is a fantastic, versatile guitar with so much more tone control then the previous models. Slightly adjusting the volume or tone control can yield many variations.
