What are electric guitars? Which is the best electric guitar for beginners? How much do electric guitars usually cost? Is it hard to learn electric guitar? Gibson sent me an axe in "worn white satin," but cherry, black, and natural finishes are also available. Les Paul's can be pretty snazzy, but the Special Tribute isn't. This is a no-nonsense guitar that's intended for rock-n-roll.
However, it doesn't lack for what you'd find on a far more expensive Lester. The quality of the hardware is high, and the volume and tone controls are responsive.
Slideshow continues on the next slide. Simple, simple, simple. From the plastic-button tuners to the unadorned Gibson headstock, this Les Paul might signal "starter" guitar, and it has been built to a price point — there's no fretboard binding, for example — but it's solid enough to carry any player through a lifetime.

I sort of felt like the ash trees that ended up in this guitar has ascended to arboreal Elysium.
The antiqued tuners are a nice touch, but they also work like a charm. As with every Taylor I've tested, the setup from the factory was impeccable. Taylors have a well-deserved reputation for almost extreme playability, a quality that comes from innovative, adjustable, bolt-on necks. Slim and fast, they can be tweaked to offer exceptionally low action that doesn't buzz. Taylor's ES2 onboard electronics — "Expression System 2" — are my idea of an industry standard.
