Loïc Le Pape LS-339 RD

I was expecting this Loïc Le speech on pollution in english Pape guitar and I don’t regret my choice!

The look is absolutely fantastic.

It has an intense, full and warm vintage tone.  This guitar is a tribute to my grand father who recently died. He used to be a professional photographer for a newspaper and he was an artist.I asked Loïc Le Pape to engrave my grand-father’s portrait, his favorite camera and a streetlight that reminds me of a photo that he took years ago.

The shape is the exact copy of a Gibson 339 shape. The burst finish reminds me of the old photo papers. A sum of little details that makes it a real piece of art.

Since I received it, I didn’t stop playing it because it is beautiful and it sounds great. The neck pickup is a killer for the blues: it has a warm and precise clean tone. The bridge pickup is biting and edgy: it is huge even on crunchy tones. I like it a lot.

How do the metal body influence the tone? Honestly, when you play it you wouldn’t say it’s a metal body. I reckon that unplugged, the metallic tone is obvious. Once plugged the only remarkable thing is the sound is huge.
Anyway, I had a great experience with Loïc Le Pape who’s been very nice and sincere. He is an artist and I had a lot of pleasure dealing with him. The result worthed the wait and I thank him for this respectful tribute to my grand-father.

  1. Tout simplement magnifique!

  2. superbe, tant par l’esthétique que par le son en crunch voire franchement saturé.
    un petit essai sur du clean, juste pour voir? 😀
