Can’t shake off the GAS for 24.75” and HH…

Recommended Posts

I’ve had three “real” Les Pauls. One, a Studio, was fantastic and I regret selling it. The other two I just didn’t gel with. There was a Traditional which weighed more than a family car and a gorgeous Tribute which sounded great but was really unbalanced - the opposite of neck dive meant the body was always trying to drag itself off my knee when sitting to play.

 

I’d give up on the idea, but there’s something about the 24.75 scale, twin humbucker arrangement that really appeals so I keep finding myself looking at LP clones and wondering….

 

I don’t want to spend a lot (having lost a ton on the previous forays into LP-world) and I think my Gibson itch is well and truly scratched so I’ve ended up looking at the Cort CR250 and the ESP LTD EC-256. 
 

Or maybe an Ibby AR420 double cut.
 

Alternatively, I might start looking at SG clones.

 

What seems not to be an option is to just play the bloody guitars I actually own….

 

Curse you, GAS!

Love that Ibanez double cut look, takes me right back to the ‘70s. Maybe not to everyone’s taste, but check out the Yamaha Revstar range, these really fly under the radar, but seem great and even have a couple of high profile users: Chris Buck & Matteo Mancuso.

Ooh, nice! Significantly cheaper than GG for the same guitar (-£80). I’ve always fancied one with P90s, but have no need for another guitar, I don’t even play the 2 electrics I already have much at all. However, as we know, that’s not how GAS works.
