Me too! Neck and bridge!
Well, given that you're AC15, P90s are almost a must. Seriously, that combination is absolutely killer (almost as good as a Tele with an AC).
I have learnt to love the Tele due to its history and all the magic. But LP is the guitar that I really think as "MY" guitar.
Actually, I guess that the LP neck, thicker than a caveman's club, is what I like the most (both my two Tele partscasters have thinner necks).
I don't have a Les Paul at the moment, but after reading these I'm jonesing for one.
Had a Silverburst 1981 Les Paul back in the 80's. Best playing guitar I ever played. I just couldn't deal with the weight. Wish I still had it because of what they sell for now but.....lol. Two years ago I thought I'd give Les Paul's another try. Got myself a 2013 60's Tribute. It was OK for a year or so but there's just no connection for me. I don't know what it is but I guess it just doesn't "fit" me. Maybe the 60's neck? SG's, on the other hand, are a perfect fit. Now I have the guitar in my avatar with the 12' radius neck and it's fantastic to play. An SG and my Tele are all I need now......at least for a while...
Haha, I haven’t owned a Vox amp in about 15 years!!!!!!
Seriously, when I picked my user name for this forum, Ac15’s were exotic amps in the states. You rarely saw them. Same with AC30’s. I did have an Ac15 when I joined the forum in 2003.
Only when they started being made in China did everyone and their mom own one.
Because of that, I don’t think of them as being nearly as cool as I used to.
Man, I would revisit them. I've had one for the last few years, and it's my go to for most things. One of the most versatile amps out there.
Oh I know they sound good. I’m just not interested in them much anymore. A lot of other great amps out there, and I have some of them.
I just picked up this LP today.
This is a statement I've always identified with.
Im wondering if I should just get a HH strat and load it up with some Gibson 57 or 59 buckers.
That looks kinda familiar....
I love the LP. Absolutely wonderful guitars.
Yeah, I have a number of different guitars, but if told all I could play was my Tele’s and Les Pauls, I’d still be a happy man.
OP, re thread title: If you impulsively purchased a Paul as a companion for your Squier, would it be a Sudden Les Paul for the Affinity?
Well played, sir.
I went for years not liking Telecasters at all.
Then I played one, and within a month had sold off other bits of gear to buy one.
Same with SGs - I picked a 'Vintage' one up last week, and it's *really* making me smile.
I don't have a specific, classic 'Les Paul' but I do have a few single-cut style guitars, including two Gibsons.
The one guitar I never seem to have bonded with over the years is a Strat, but I can switch twixt my Teles and my singlecut guitars without a problem.
I'd have an LP, but one thing puts me off is the dreaded weak headstock joint. Some of the gigs I play, I'd be taking a real chance. My Teles and my PRS SEs have survived them with all their dangers.
I had a White "Norlin" LP Studio and a Silverburst Lotus with Dimarzio's that I had to sell. Both were great guitars.
I've got two
The one in my avatar and a Epiphone Standard Pro
