"Multi-soundhole technology made affordable. Using the same unique Ovation Quintad bracing pattern featured on the more expensive Elite models, here's an entry-level acoustic/electric that will continue to earn its keep as your playing skills mature."
"Ted McCarty's Tune-o-Matic bridge (also known as the ABR-1) started to appear on higher-end Gibson guitars as early as 1954. The ABR-1 was added to the Les Paul Model in 1956 and, the individual saddles to adjust each string's length, as well as thumbwheels to adjust the overall height of the bridge, represented a quantum leap forward in intonation and a marked improvement in tone and sustain. Now part of our proprietary new Vintage Original Spec series - the next step in our journey toward perfection."
"See and hear the difference a century makes. Often imitated but never equaled, this is a premium Les Paul double cutaway guitar, crafted with 100 years of Gibson knowledge and craftsmanship. For players who want the real thing."
DiMarzio D Sonic 7
"Clarity, warm tone and high output are the qualities that define the D Sonic. John Petrucci agrees. He’s had a lot of recent experience playing the D Sonic on this 6-string guitar, so when he wanted the same sound from his 7-string, DiMarzio couldn’t say no. The D Sonic combination of clean and heavy that works so well with high gain amps for both chords and soloing makes a great choice for a 7-string bridge pickup. The high strings sing and the low strings growl. And it looks really cool!"
"The only major change to the Les Paul Standard in 1959 was the addition of wider, fatter, jumbo frets, which facilitated more dramatic bends. The real force of this change was not felt until the late '60's when rock and blues players like Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield, and Peter Green began to discover the fat, warm voice of the '59 Standard. This moment in history marked the beginning of the idealization of the '50 Les Paul as the Holy Grail of guitars in the minds of professionals, collectors, and weekend warriors."
