    i am interested, going to buy me a guitar for myself soon. from a pawn shop in the shades. i will embark on a journey to the stars. but i digress, heres what i been wondering about, whats the deal with the gibson les paul guitars, why is it ok to charge this kind of money for one? surely any guitar can sound like any guitar and if you cant play no guitar in the world can change that?

    each guitar has its own unique tone.. and its this tone that makes it special. If you want a guitar that sounds like a les paul then you have to buy a les paul. Buy cheap - buy twice!!

    The older the guitar the more the woods decayed giving you a warmer, richer sound that no new instrument can copy. Thats why just the base of an old Fender can cost upwards of 20 grand. Also where it comes from can make a difference in price aswell. More expensive instruments are usually custom made in the U,S of A. Then there is also Japan and mexico to.

    If what ive said is important then it would turn out you are a pretencious cunt! Only mentalists buy huge money guitars! fucking posers.

    I have a £400 strat, £450 jagstang (which is going up in value) and a £100 accoustic. i learnt to play on a £20 argos guitar. God it was shit.
