  • Gibson Raw Power LP?

    Does anyone have any experience with these? I am saving for another guitar, and these caught my eye. I like the the color options and the maple fretboard. Are they any good? Worth the price? Some of the other guitars I've been considering are the Baja Tele and a couple different Edwards models. Is there a consensus on these things? I haven't heard much about them

        I really want to check out one of the SGs.



        I think i could find a good use for such a treble machine.

          wish they would have put black parallelos or block inlays on the maple tho, that look is sick

                PLAYED ONE TODAY!

                er..two.. First one had frets-a-poppin

                Sounded like an Uber hot rodded strat. A little too hot rodded to produce anything warm from it. It's a stripped down BFG with Classic 57s and a maple neck.

                  So I guess its not too versatile then? I'm looking for something with a lot of versatility...

                    Seems like it would sound waaaaay too bright. Too much maple.

                        Versatility on this guitar is the ability to plug/unplug it...

                          I wasn't impressed with it, way too bright.

                          But I am more of a Standard/Classic/Custom guy so I was initially skeptical of the maple fretboard and that is the same reason I prefer rosewood boards on Strats as well.

                          It's a nice guitar just not something I would be interested in owning.
                          Like all things Gibson, you have to play several to find one that is great.

                            Hmm guess I probably won't be getting one of these then, I like bright amp tones, so I am guessing one of these + how I like my amps dialed would be a bad combo. I guess I'll probably look into those Edwards LPs now...
