This resulted in the so-called lawsuit period. During this period, Ibanez produced guitars under the Mann name to avoid authorities in the United States and Canada. The company has produced its own guitar designs ever since. The late s and early s were an important period for the Ibanez brand. Most Ibanez guitars were made by the FujiGen guitar factory in Japan up until the mid- to late s, and from then on Ibanez guitars have also been made in other Asian countries such as Korea, China, and Indonesia. Cimar and Starfield were guitar and bass brands owned by Hoshino Gakki. In the s, Hoshino Gakki and Kanda Shokai shared some guitar designs, and so some Ibanez and Greco guitars have the same features.

With all the fat, sweet, snarling Les Paul tone that purists love, the Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro IV sports a mahogany body with a thick maple cap for the perfect blend of warmth and clarity. The top is finished in high-gloss lacquer, while the back, sides and neck have a smooth satin finish that feels great and lets the wood resonate fully. Period-Correct Pickguard The cream-colored pickguard has been a Les Paul staple dating back to the models of the late s and the early s. Many players, however, removed the pickguard from their Les Pauls to show off the beauty of the flame maple tops, prompting Gibson to stop installing the pickguard altogether.

During the s and s, Gibson began reinstalling the pickguard in the factory, and the Les Pauls from this era once again arrived in stores bearing the classic, cream-colored pickguard. These new pickups feature nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers and 4-conductor braided wiring.

Go to menu top I never heard anything better than a Fender if we’re talking about the big manufacturers. Later on, in the Guitar section, I’ll also talk about Standel and EchoSonic , but they’re produced in such small numbers that it’s fair to say they’ll only have historic interest to the most of us So As long as you get a tube Fender you’ll probably be on the right track, because they all sound pretty good. It doesn’t have to be vintage at all, but they do look pretty cool.

Signature model for the best slide player of our generation. I remember when Trucks was a little kid who could shred with the best before he was in high school.

It is built from Gibson’s finest tonewoods with low density mahogany, loaded with a ’57 Classic pickups, the choice of most players with a preference.

In the s, Gibson also produced the Tune-o-matic bridge system and its version of the humbucking pickup, the PAF “Patent Applied For” , first released in and still sought after for its sound. These “modernistic” guitars did not sell initially. It was only in the late s and early 70s when the two guitars were reintroduced to the market that they sold well. The Firebird , in the early 60s, was a reprise of the modernistic idea, though less extreme.

Modernization[ edit ] In the late 50s, McCarty knew that Gibson was seen as a traditional company and began an effort to create more modern guitars.

The Gibsons had the impossibly long headstock and the Medallions headstock was wider, didn’t taper off at such a steep angle and was rounder at the top.

Epiphone Les Paul Epiphone Les Paul Dating back to and once a major rival of Gibson, the Epiphone company and brand were purchased by Gibson’s parent company in Originally the Epiphone models were made in the same factory as the Gibson guitars, by the same craftspeople using the same materials and often with the same features as Gibson models, but manufacturing of most of the Epiphone instruments was switched to Asia sometime around Today, Gibson primarily uses the Epiphone brand as their high value, lower priced overseas-built alternative to their top tier Gibson USA models.

All Epiphone models sold in the United States are subjected to a 15 point inspection process, and are “set up” in the USA by trained Gibson employees at their Nashville facility. Around , Les Paul, a legendary musician and musical electronics and solidbody guitar pioneer, created one of his early solid bodied guitars after-hours in the Epiphone factory out of a 4X4″ piece of wood. On to this he later attached side “wings” from a Epiphone hollowbody guitar in order to give it a more conventional look.

This guitar, known as “The Log”, was later shown to Gibson executives, who initially passed on the idea of building them, but they changed their mind within a couple of years and the Les Paul Model guitar as we know it today was first released in These early “gold top” models were later joined by the black Les Paul Customs, and then the sunburst “Standards” of the late s.

Well known users “With a balanced low-impedance output, you could use long cables without all the problems inherent in unbalanced high-impedance lines. Gibson was keen on having the low-impedance transformer close to the amp, so we made a special cable with a transformer on the other end, which you had to have in order to use it. But if you forgot your cable, you were out of luck—so we added the switch to go from low to high impedance.

One position on the Les Paul Bass was meant to sound just like the Precision, and all the other settings were extra choices for the player. The Triumph sounded so good it was scary; it was the finest bass I knew how to come up with, but the kids of that time were not ready for so many options.

In what’s being dubbed as ‘Full Hathaway-gate’, the Les Miserables star suffered the major wardrobe malfunction in the full glare of the media spotlight as she exited her car at the premiere of her new movie in New York on Monday. Anne is said to be ‘devastated’ after news publications around the world ran the pictures. Scroll down for video That’s not an A-list move: Anne seen here looking a bit more demure at the premiere of Les Miserabes in New York on Monday The usually sophisticated actress was clearly embarrassed by the wardrobe malfunction, which was largely due to the thigh high split of her black figure-hugging dress falling open as she got out of the car by swinging both her legs onto the pavement, flashing her lady parts in the process.

And Anne, 30, was allegedly overheard telling Vanity Fair writer Ingrid Sischy at a luncheon the following day about the ‘devastating’ mishap. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them. Anne holds onto co-star Hugh Jackman as she attends another event the day after ‘the incident’ Back to her A-game: The actress has since redeemed herself in a pretty sequined frock sans split Since the unfortunate mishap, which is out of character for the usually demure and pulled together Anne, many fashion editors have offered words of advice on how to avoid showing off too much flesh.

Keeping those legs firmly crossed: Anne has made a flurry of appearances to support her new film Les Miserables, seen here on the Jimmy Fallon show Though Anne can be consoled by the thought that most celebrities have endured an embarrassing wardrobe mishap, after failing to master the art of stepping out of a car. Even Kate Middleton was once famously photographed revealing her underwear trying to get out of a vehicle, and many have flashed a little too much of their cleavages on the red carpet.

Ever the good sport.
