    '87 LP Custom with Duncan Antiquities, through a Crate VC5212 (I can't afford a Marshall right now). Sounds incredible.

    1990 Classic, 1995 PRS Custom 22, McInturff Royal w/P90's played through a Koch Twintone 50 W. head and a Boogie wide-body 1 x 12 cab. Great sounding set-up going straight into the amp.

    I've been playing...

    my 79 Les Paul Pro with old humbuckers retrofitted (I think the bridge it a 50s PAF and the neck is a patent #) that sounds INCREDIBLE with my 66 Fender Bassman and Jenkins 2 10 cab with jensen reissues. This guitar has been naturally "reliced" as it has no finish on the back of the 3 piece maple neck, has been refretted (extremely well) and has lots of dings. Tobacco sunburst, brighter sounding than some LPs due to the maple neck and ebony fingerboard. It's not too heavy either, I love it. Long live les pauls. My first guitar, an early 90s LP studio is still being played quite a bit too, I put harmonic designs Z-90 (p-90 type) pickups in it that really have some guts. It sounds TOTALLY different than my 79, acoustically and electrically, but I love them both for different reasons.

    94 Standard with 57' Classics.

    2555sl Head (Slash).

    4 x 12 Tall Vintage with 25 watt Celestions.

    Why? Because it works for me! I can get the tone / sounds that I like which is basically overdriven Tubes and those neat little Gibbons style pinch harmonics!

    A 1979 Hamer Standard and an '81 Hamer Sunburst (those are my Les Pauls at the moment) into a JCM 800 head or for the times I don't need to crank, into a PRS HG 70 head, which can sound great at any volume.

    I've owned LPs since 1980 or so and sold my last one (a killer '92 Standard in TV yellow) a few years back. While I think that the Hamers I've picked up blow away the vast majority of the Les Pauls that I've played over the years (or any Gibsons for that matter), I've had the strong hankering to pick up a Lester again just to have around. Not that it would replace my Hamer Standards and Sunbursts, but I'd dig having one of them strapped on again.

    I got a '99 Les Paul Studio refinished from wine red to vintage yellow /clear sides masked the sides of the maple and now have natural cream binding look,vintage yellow stained top has subtle but beautiful figure neck is satined and shaved a bit.

    Carvin Legacy head->Avatar 4x12(dry) w/eminence/vin35 xpattern
    Legacy's line out to lexicon FX->Mesa 20/20 2-2x12 cabs.
    modified control 8 midi switcher ch.switching,tap tempo etc.

    I almost exclusively play at home, although I'd welcome some opportunities to play out when I get a few crowd-pleasing songs down.

    I have a 2001 Custom Shop Korina Standard, which I had no idea was korina when I bought it. It's finished black all around (translucent on the quilted top), and the store labeled it as a Class 5. I just liked the guitar and bought it. It sounds wonderful.

    I play through a Fender Blues Jr., which is a great little amp. I have heard these (incvluding my own) used in bars, and it delivers plenty of volume.

    I also have a '91 LP Studio (another good guitar!) and an '80s Marshall 5212 amp. The Marshall is very good for heavy metal I suppose (not my thing).

    Great Thread!

    01 Std Plus straight into Blues Jr. Mix a ts-9 in once in a while.

    I run my 2002 R7 Authentic w/BB PU's and a cord into the following amps:

    Mesa Boogie Studio .22+

    Mesa Boogie Blue Angel 4 x 10

    Fender 65' Deluxe Reverb RI


    The .22+ is getting the most time.....right now anyway. The on board 5 Band EQ really allows for some excellent "Tone Tweakin".
    I also run the .22+ through the 4 x 10 cabinet of the Blue Angel.

  14. #134
    I play a '99 R9 that I bought from Mark Bishop (Mark's Guitar Loft - great dealer and guy, by the way)

    Thru a '65 Block Logo JTM-45/Straight Cab w/20 watt Celestions

    Why? The response from the amp is very dynamic, and the Les Paul is a good one. (I also have Rolph '59 pickups in the guitar)

    I just realized - (again) I sure get a lot of great input from here - I found out about Mark, about '99 R9s, and about Rolphs from this forum!

    76 Artisan and a Line 6 Spider because it's got a LOT of good sounds and is super convenient around the house. For traditional tube amp stuff I still have a tweed Peavey vintage combo that sounds pretty good when it heats up too

    '94 Black Custom with a Dirty Fingers and Duncan '59 - (Jimmy Page wiring)
    '81 Creme Custom (The pickups are amazing - They have gold 'Patent Applied For' stickers on them - Jimmy Page wiring)
    Rectifier and MK2 C thru greenback cabs - Why do I use Boogies? Ive tried most of the amps out there? and keep coming back to the Boogie tone (NOT THE SCOOPED NU-METAL TONE EITHER)
    Favorite players - Zakk Wylde and John Sykes

    I play my 70' Lp Custom Black through a Blonde Fender 65' Deluxe RI.
    Sounds Great !
    My only complaint is that I have to run a distortion pedal at lower volumes to get that dirty sound. The pedal really inhibits the quality of my tone.
    When I'm rehearsing with the boys I set the volume right in between 7 & 8 & let her scream. This amp cuts right through the mix with the Les Paul. I'm going to try it for the first time with my Gretsch this weekend.

    A 97 Studio Les Paul into a Dr. Z Rt 66 with Marshall 412 or into a 65 super reverb. The 66 and the LP just smokes.

    '95 Classic straight into (via George L)1997 Matchless 15 watt LG210, oh my

    My Setup

    Les Paul standard Plus (light burst) with Tom Holmes Pups. Through a Harry Joyce 30 watt head into a vibroworld marshall 2x12 with weber blue dogs or a Victoria 59 twin 2x12 that was custom made.

    I find that with those 2 amps they cover the fendery and marshally territory very well. And not everybody in the world plays through those amps so there a definate punch in indiviuality of tone!!

    mattallen, I'd love to try that Harry Joyce! I can't believe this thread's still alive, but apparently it is, so here goes:

    I play a '93 Les Paul Standard or a 2002 SG Classic (P-90s) into a Tone King Comet 40A, or sometimes, if even more portability is required and big volume isn't, a Laney LC-15.

    Why?
    '93 LP - It sounds and plays and looks good, and the price was in my comfort zone. It all came together with this one for me.

    SG w/ P-90s? - It's light as a feather, plays perfect and gets an awesome lead tone.

    Tone King Comet - It's a treat. Fender blackface Deluxe Reverb with more headroom, or a Tweed Deluxe, or a Tweed Deluxe with more headroom which can be tweaked into Marshall territory.

    Laney - it's cheap, small, and sounds darn good cranked. Vox AC-15-ish.
    ________________________________________
    I'd also like to get a 2204 JCM 800 or 50w SL head + closed back cab for that kind of thing.

    LP and Amp

    I have a 98 58RI solid aged cherry finish w/Seth Lover PU's. I play though a Savage AUdio Blitz 50 combo or a Carr Hammer Head for those quiet times.

    I use a Gibson Les Paul Studio(wine red) into a Fender twin reverb(2x12), and a Carvin MTS(2x12). I only use BOSS pedals, and I have a compression sustainer, blues driver, Distortion, and an ensemble chorus into an equalizer

  35. #155
    20th anniversary wine red custom through a bad cat two tone into a super deluxe reverb with celestions. I also use a couple of newish teles and a SG 100 through the same set up.

    Heritage '80 Standard

    Mine is a "root beer" colored sunburst Heritage '80 Standard with minor flame. I play it through either a Rivera S120-210, a Fender Dual Showman Reverb and a 2 X 12" cab with JBL K-120's, a Traynor Bassmaster with a closed back cab holding an EVM 12L or a tweaked reissue Mesa Boogie MK I with an Altec 417-8H speaker. I use different amps for different gigs. The Rivera is my "do-all" amp. I put a Space Echo in the loop and it'll get about any tone I need. The DSR is for loud clean playing. I use the Traynor and Mesa together with an A/B box. I use the Traynor with a Real Tube Reverb for clean tones and the Boogie for Santana-type tones.
    I'm looking into buying a Historic '56 sunburst, as I like P-90's.

    The best lead tone I ever had was with the '68 Gold Top I owned as a youth, through a cranked silverface Super Reverb. What a sound!
    Save the '68 Gold Tops!
