I can't figure it out.
I love the sound but after 2 1/2 years with my Gibson Les Paul Studio Pro 2014 I'm still not in love with her.
I formed a connection with the rest of my instruments but this one always fights with me. It was a pain in the ass to get it to stay in tune. I had to have the nut changed to a bone one and also changed the tuners. Now it stays somewhat in tune (with Nutsauce).
The still don't like about it are it's weight, the neck, the access... I don't like that my fat fingers are somewhat to fat to do some type of chords on it.
But I freaking love the sound...
I love the sustain... but the guitar just wants to fight with me.
It's like a love hate relationship with a girl. There are just some upsides (yes she also looks pretty hot) and so many downsides that everyone of my friends is telling me to ditch her for someone that is more similar to me and actually matches all my needs.
I think I remember Slash saying that he likes that he somewhat has to fight with his Les Paul. I don't know if I like it. I play it less than any other of my guitars. But live I use it on half of the set because of its sound.
Has anyone any advice for me?
Are any of you in a love-hate relationship with one of your guitars?
I really can't decide if i want to sell or trade her for another guitar.
Maybe this is a real cliché. But I wish there was a guitar that sounded like a Les Paul on the Bridge, a Strat on the Neck and played like a PRS.
