I've got nothing against Gibson; they make fine instruments. I just happen to like a different style of instrument. I prefer thinner necks and a more modern looking body style.
However, every once in a while a certain fellow musician that I know finds the need to suggest that I need a Les Paul. That my tone would be better with a Les Paul. Implying that my guitar is so-so quality and I need to upgrade.
Now, I'd be fine with that if my instrument was an entry-level junker. But it's not. It's a neck-through flying V with top-notch internals, a sleek shiny white paint-job and binding all around. I even tried to tell this guy that my guitar was neck-through and had some good pickups in it. He wasn't deterred.
Perhaps he's just trying to tell me that my tone sucks?
Anyway, I thought the whole thing was just kind of funny. How about you guys? Ever have anyone try to set you straight about the kind of gear you're using?
