I'm thinking of getting one soon, and I'd like to know what kind of body and pickups you guys like. Thanks!

Play a few different LPs. Start with a cheap one then try the expensive one... Make sure you stand up and play it as well as sit down to play it. I personally will never make the mistake of buying a les paul with my own money ever again. I found the guitar to be clumsy and awkward for the way I play.

I cannot play a Les Paul. Don't know if it is the fat narrow neck or how heavy it is??? I have never liked them. Those who do swear by them though. I know they have great tone. I recommend going to the NAMM Show and playing every guitar there. That's what I'm going to do :)

Well, the reason I want to get one is because I love the tone, it's sounds heavy as fuck. I don't really need it for shred stuff, I just want a guitar with a fixed bridge. I tried one last year, and it sounded fucking awesome, I didn't want to put it away.

My bro uses a 1979 Gibson Les Paul Standard... actually made in '79... heh, he got it for $1000 but he doesnt take 100% superb care of his instruments (he leaves them all laying on the floor w/ no case). I dont like the sound too much; I know many many people do... they're also quite heavy.

Why did I post here? I dont know crap about guitars! AHH I've gotten stupider!

Great guitar for playing at home (or in the studio) but I wouldn't recommend it for gigs ... too damn heavy. The vintage Gibsons are completely overpriced and a waste of money unless you're buying it as an investment.

I just bought a Les Paul Double-Cutaway Standard Plus in October.. It is, in my opinion, the best playing Les Paul out there. It has a 60's style thin taper neck which allows you to play fast and it also has 24 frets(most LP's have 22). Another advantage of the DC is that it's lighter than it's single cutaway cousin. It also has much improved upper fret access. And the final bonus is that it costs less than most other Les Paul models!!
Definitely two thumbs up!!

I've got a 68' Goldtop LP with a Seymour Duncan in the Bridge and it SCREAMS!!! I've used it alot in studio and even in some cases during gigs... But my main workhorse is still my Fender Strat...X
