    This one is great to my ears I may be a bit biased cos its an Ebony like mine but I love my Lester as much as my Strats I say Lester because I have one and a few more Strats.

    If only I had one Strat.?

    This is so difficult, but I reckon these two cats.. Dickie Betts and Dangerous Dan Toler know how to coax just about anything from a Les Paul.. :thumb:

    Hard to pick a fave, but I REALLY like this tone from Snowy White, whom I'd never heard of until Guy Named Sue posted this in his Hunt For a Les Paul post:

    Slash helped make the Les Paul popular again while everyone else was playing Super Strats in 80s hair metal bands. Not that there is anything wrong with Super Strats, love me some Maiden. Joe Perry in Aerosmith's 2nd act did the same. LPs at some point had fallen out of favor like Strats before. Some guys named Jimi and Clapton helped make Strats popular again.
