When Gibson Custom launched the Collector’s Choice™ series in 2010, its mission was simple yet also complicated. It was to recreate classic Les Pauls (mainly ’58-‘60s), but recreate them so precisely you wouldn’t be able to tell any difference. The Collector’s Choice™ range is a mixture of LPs played by famous players and other non-famous guitars that are simply stunning examples of Les Pauls from a legendary era.

Last week I picked up a 2014 Gibson SG Special on loan for a few days, and after playing with it for a little while it struck me: “Whoa, this SG has 24 frets.” I have some 24-fret fluorescent-colored shred axes for my more noodly moments, but when I started messing around with the higher notes of the Special I realized that I was approaching those extra frets in a different way on this guitar.

Comments
Thanks to an innovative pickup wiring design, the Les Paul Standard offers 13 distinct, different pickup-based sounds without on-board electronics or modeling techniques. While far more versatile than the usual neck/both/bridge switching options, this many options may seem daunting: How can you remember all these combinations, and switch among them effortlessly onstage?

There are two main ways to record an acoustic guitar: point one or more microphones at it, or use its built-in piezo pickup. The piezo option is very convenient, because you can patch the output directly to a computer’s audio interface.

Admitting that you’re a fan of pop rock, power punk and everything in between has always been deeply uncool. But the increasingly popular Slam Dunk, an all day multi-stage travelling music festival, has well and truly broken the ‘guilty pleasure’ shackles off all of those sub-genres for closet fans throughout the UK and indeed, those travelling in especially from mainland Europe.
