Edwards Les Paul

Is buying the Edwards Les Paul as good as getting a Gibson Les Paul?

At the risk of being attacked and my fingernails being pulled out (ha, find me if you can!) I’m going to say yes, they are every bit as good as a Gibson in terms of quality and sound.

The evidence is astounding if you just read through some of the ebays listings, or Reviews Online, I’m not the only one who *gasp* thinks a generic guitar could possibly be compared as an equal to an institution.

No, the Edwards Les Pauls don’t have the “Gibson” brand name.

Ooooohhhhh…how tragic!

They aren’t made in America! Sacrilege!

But…when I compare guitars I think in terms of how well they’re made and how good they sound.

I could give a rat’s rear end who gets the credit for making a certain thing.

I’m not going to stop drinking from my favorite coffee mug because it came from Wal-Mart…I’m going to keep drinking from it because the retarded cat on the side makes me smile, even in the morning.

Yeah, mornings are inherently evil…no matter who made them a reality. But I digress…

I read somewhere in the vast world of the internet that there are no guitars being made anymore that aren’t copies.

Even Gibson is essentially copying themselves, making replicas of guitars that were created decades ago, by different people in different factories with different machinery.

It actually makes sense.

These new guitars are just like the old ones, they are striving to create the best of the best that was popular when Jimi Hendrix was playing.

All the signature models are nothing but a copy of a famous person’s personal guitar…and isn’t that an inherently worse kind of plagiarism?

I can practically feel the lightning bolts hitting screens everywhere, trying to find me.

Sorry…I have no problem with Gibson, they make some awesome instruments.

However, there are others who make awesome instruments too, and they don’t cost more than my children.

The Edwards LPs are often made with solid chunks of mahogany, carved into the familiar shape of a Gibson LP.

They have good hardware.

They are solid and durable. When you play them, the sound rings out true and sure; with a resonance that people believe only a Gibson can create.

Yeah…the Edwards LP guitars are every bit as good as the Gibsons, as long as you don’t care about that Gibson logo that costs an extra few grand…
