What's your favorite Gibson guitar?

My favorite must be the X-plorer (Natural). (I got one waiting for me in Houston, don't know when i'll get it :cry:)

I love my LP standard though whenever I play Her I find there's something wrong... :roll: Maybe it's because of the different sound and features compared to my beloved Strat (which ain't really a Strat no more -She recently received an Evo for Her bridge- but you get the idea :P )

I never grow tired of my favorite axe, the Gibson Les Paul Classic 60's neck. It's sitting on my lap right now 8)

For me, it has to be the Gibson Les Paul Jr (preferably a 55-56 model). Its just a tone monster. Nothing better than a slab of the richest mahogany with a beefy pickup on it, forget your pickup switches and your floyd roses! Even though they were the cheap guitars of the time, a 55 or 56 model certainly isn't a cheap model now! For a 1955 Gibson TV Jr in mint condition, you are looking at anything from £10,000 to £15,000, big bucks! Also, don't judge the Jr on what that clown from green day uses it for, just listen to the whole of Jethro Tulls' Aqualung for a classic Jr tone, or Mountain's Mississippi Queen for that Jr vibe!

It's just something about this model. I've never liked it, but I fully respect you for doing so :)
