Expert Review

Rock blues guitarists have been using Les Pauls to crank out the jams for years; if you need proof of what this instrument is capable of doing, look no further than names such as Slash, Joe Perry, and Jimmy Page. It’s not hard to understand why this is the go-to axe for so many players in the field of rock blues. The Les Paul classic mahogany body has always been known for its deep tone, and the machine-wound, gold-covered Alnico V pickups in the Golden Pearl model are a force to be reckoned with, responsible for some truly jaw-dropping crunchy riffs and soaring, ear-bleeding lead lines.

Of course, you can’t place the word gold into the name of a guitar model and not follow through, and Gibson has not disappointed on that end, either. Gold tuners on the headstock of this guitar will keep your axe in tune during the aforementioned rocking out, and the complementary-colored cream pick guard not only gives this axe an elegant and sophisticated look, but also protects that body from any pick-related wear and tear. Meanwhile, two volume knobs and two control knobs ensure you’ll be able to tweak your sound accordingly until you find the tone that works best for you. They say that all that glitters is not gold, but this is one piece of gold that is definitely a glittery highlight in a sea of guitars.Rating: 4/5
