'71 LP Custom.
First guitar I ever owned was a '78 Gibson SG nice axe until realized I missed the mark by not choosing a Telecaster over it (once I did, it was sold). Mark Chatfield of The Silver Bullet band (yes, Bob Seger) has it last I knew. Owned a couple of LP's (Studio and a Standard) all night with those, was like wearing a boat anchor around my neck. I'll stick to my Tele's and the occasional Strat.
More P90s. I don't actually own a, well, you-know-what.
Here's mine, a '59 special. It was my only guitar for years. Bought it in '74 from a friend. I sold a '69 thinline, sunburst, maple neck, to make this purchase, but that's another story.
I love Les Pauls in lots of forms. I really dig a goldtop with either P90s or humbuckers, and I love the Les Paul Deluxes with the mini-humbuckers. And I would love to own a single-pickup LP Jr. with the P90. But when it came time to vote with my wallet I went with an R8 in lemonburst finish:
I have 2 LP's in addition to my Teles. I find them both a great Tele compliment. Both are P90 guitars. I have a Goltop and a Special. I sort of go back and forth as to which I like better.
Here I am with my 1995 Studio on the day I bought her.
People have asked me why I kept the refinish and not stripped it. Well the guitar feels so good as it is and I don't want to spoil it by screwing around with it, so the tribal motives will stay.
The pawnshop next door sells a traditional sunburst for 750€. Dangerzone.
Me and my Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop in 1973(?)
I also had a Les Paul Junior for a short while around that time, but sold it to a very talented young guy, who has later become one of our best and most versatile players. He still has that guitar.
Not the same guitar, but identical:
My Custom Shop '56 LP(p90s etc)..just the best sounding axe around, and complements my Tele beautifully
My three LPs
Classic Gold Top
Faded Standard HoneyBurst
I have an Ash Tele Deluxe,but alas no pics of it....
Here's my favourite - and my nicest guitar (no offense intended to anyone who has other ideas on a Fender forum ): a 2012 - 1960 Tribute Zebra Coil Les Paul Traditional. The neck on this guitar is just so sweet!
Here's my 2012 '52 Hot Rod and 2004 Gibson LP Standard. I honestly couldn't tell you which one I love more. They're both awesome!
Les Paul JR seems like a pretty standard choice for Tele players. Personally, I've never been a big fan of the conventional Les Pauls, but I recently picked up an El Degas 70s copy in a trade that I really love. It's light and has a slim neck and plays really nice. Even has a switch to split the bridge pickup. It is a bolt on though, so whether it's a real les paul is an argument I'm not going to have a lot luck winning
Les Paul Special. P90s. Slab body. What's not to like?
I had a faded DC Special in TV yellow for a while and loved it and still kind of miss it. But since I traded it for my SFDR, not many regrets there.
I have one of these too. Mine is an early 1963. It's basically a shorter scale, insanely light, high output Esquire.
I've been playing the same 1985 Studio since forever (pictured in my avatar). We've covered a lot of miles together. Recently picked up an LP Jr that has been attracting my attention.
I always bring a LP and a tele to all gigs. I never know what's going to work best.
Thanks for sharing this. So much great experience on TDPRI.
It's a pretty freakin' amazing place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My "Les Paul" is this LP Melody Maker.
Though I'd have a 50s style LP Special if I could.
