Getting good tones out of a Gibson Les Paul Style Guitar

Getting good tones out of a Gibson Les Paul Style Guitar

In this video I show you how to get a much better rhythm guitar tone as well as a better lead guitar tone using the volume and tone controls on a Gibson Les Paul style electric guitar.  This particular guitar is a Tokai but it doesn’t matter which brand you have, you can apply these tips and get better tone quickly and easily.  Most people don’t do this when they first start using a Les Paul so I hope it helps.

Les Paul vs ES-335 – Do They Sound the Same?

Les Paul vs ES-335 – Do They Sound the Same?

In this video I am showing you the differences between a Les Paul electric guitar and an ES-335.  Both of these guitars are Japanese Tokai guitars and are basically references of late 50’s Gibson electric guitars.  Tonally, there’s a not as much difference as I thought but there still is just enough to notice it – especially on clean.  When you add some overdrive into the mix, it’s pretty hard to tell the difference to the untrained ear.

Tokai Love Rock Guitar Review

Tokai Love Rock Guitar Review

Here are two video demos of my Korean made Tokai Love Rock.  This guitar has two vintage voiced humbucker pickups and is a dream to play.  It sounds more open sounding than my black Epiphone Les Paul and it’s one guitar I should of kept.  I have my eye out for another one down the track.  Tokai make the best Gibson style guitars on the planet and it’s no surprise that with today’s standards of Gibson, they are really standing out in terms of quality, tone and reliability.
