    Obviosly this question is for the few that are in or know about the Jewish wedding bands. Les Paul Gibson is one of the top models in electric guitar, and it has an incredible sound (in my opinion) but I never see it. Is there a specific reason to that or do the guitarests not really like it to much?

    Very simple: gibson guitars only have humbucker pickups. the most common guitar used is the strat, which is the best for rhythm guitar, because it also has single coil. This is coming from a guitarist and producer.

    Does the tone of the Gibson (very fat) clash with the band as opposed to the Strat which has a very clean sound?

    it doesn’t clash because you can EQ it out.

    no, but the fat tone isnt good for rhythm, its generally a lead. since strats can have both, without getting it customized, for a mere $800, its the prevelant one.

    Bands at weddings, etc are only deaf inducing noisemakers pushing the boyishness style music. What difference does it make what brand noisemaker one uses.

    Gibson has been increasing prices steadily over the past 10 years or so. Back in the vintage era, there were basically three models of Les Pauls – the Custom, the Standard, and the Special (the Junior is a single-pickup version of the Special). Now, there’s a crazy array of different models, and keeping them straight is a guitarist’s (and marketer’s) nightmare – the Standard, which is the most popular, has been changed drastically, and the closest to a tradition LP Standard is now called a Traditional.

    Gibson does offer single coil pickups – the P-90, which is available on the Les Paul. The best known users of guitars with the P-90s are of course The Beatles, on their Epiphone Casino guitars they started using in 1966.

    It’s a question of dialing in your sound with your amplifier more than the pickups – the 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb reissue is a good choice for working musicians. My $0.02….

    Why does every thread have to come back to the shidduch crisis?

    @yeshivishe kup is a Les Paul workable? I just love the sound, feel and body of it

    DaasYochid…if we speak about the crisis enough or too many times, perhaps Jewish leadership will get involved!

    Whitecar, if you like the way it sounds both alone and with other instruments, it’s a good choice for you.

    My decibel meter app peaked at 110 dB at last night’s wedding. That’s the average human pain threshold, according to a website I checked. Average level during dancing was around 100.
