(SOLD) Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus Satin Ocean Blue 2018
Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus, satin ocean blue, made in USA 2018. Now and then, Gibson gets a bit sensible and brings back a cool model people have been asking about for ages. The Les Paul Deluxe is a 70s era icon, famed for a fast playing neck and a pair of Firebird-style mini humbucker pickups. The neck on this one great: it's an agreeable round profile, not too thick or thin, and with the bound board, fret nibs and cool inlays, it's all class. The sound is great: heaps of typical LP hefty low end, thick and rich mids... but, with a juicy sweetness on the top end that lends a bit of extra clarity and sparkle. The mini-hums are certainly a cool thing. The blue finish is awesome: it kinda reminds me of a pair of well-worn jeans. Or, the seaside in summer. Or... something else blue. It looks great anyhow, you're gonna love it.
