You can see this at 2:04 and throughout. Josh has said this was one of the first guitars he ever bought, a Gibson Les Paul Classic. He has switched the pickups at some point, some videos he has uncovered cream coloured humbuckers whereas others he has nickel covered humbuckers. This was his main guitar used in the All We Know Is Falling studio tracks and live shows, he used it for some parts of Riot but stopped using it live. He used a different Les Paul (Standard) later on in the studio for Careful from Brand New Eyes.more
I have this ’91 Les Paul Classic that’s all burnt up. I’ve had it since it was new. And that’s pretty much my main Les Paul. I got this guitar for the GNR tour and it was just a brand new Les Paul Classic that was completely stock and tobacco sunburst. But I would never play it because it just looked too damn new. It was just too pretty, so I always just used my black Les Paul and my Tele. My tech, Elwood, would keep handing me the guitar and telling me that it sounds great and I should play it, but I never would. So one day, he comes up to me with it and it looked like it had been in a fire. He just did this artistic work on it, where he kept lighting it on fire and putting it out. He burnt the pickup rings, the knobs – everything. When I first looked at it, my reaction was, “You son of a bitch! You burned my guitar!” But then it was, “Wow! That looks really cool.” So I changed the pickup rings and the knobs, and just left the finish. But since then, it’s been my main Les Paul. I love that guitar and it’s stock – stock pickups, stock everything, except for the pickup rings and knobs.more

Hugh Laurie can be seen in several episodes of "House, M.D." playing a Gibson Les Paul Classic in Tobacco Burst with a Bigsby. The above link shows some screen captures of the guitar. One episode where you can see it pretty well is called "Adverse Events," but the scene has been removed from Youtube due to copyright issues. You can also see him playing it in 3.06 Que Será Será and that can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIRGrdyoS6gmore

> Then I’ve got a double-cutaway goldtop Les Paul Classic. They are so cool. It’s got a thinner ’60 neck, and that’s what I have on the other ones, too. I don’t like the old ’50s neck as much. It’s an interesting guitar and it definitely sounds different from the others because it’s chambered. It’s a very warm-sounding guitar. Those guitars are all stock. It’s the first time in years that I haven’t had to modify my guitars.more
“I've got a 1991 Les Paul Classic, stock. That's been one of the main ones, but I've also got my 2007 Lemon Drop Les Paul Standard. I'm a little 'disabled' as a female as I don't have the largest hands in the world, so all my Les Pauls have the 1960s-profile necks. They're not chambered, but I do buy ones that are as light as possible. They're not your big 10lb boys! And when you're dragging them round an airport every day, Les Pauls seem to get heavier. But I love them."more
Quoted from [this interview](https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/27486-glassjaws-justin-beck-double-agent?page=2): **Q** : You’re known for playing Les Paul Classics. Is that what you played on the album? > My go-to for years was the Classic. And I would hype them up with EMG 81s because I always felt my amps on the road would always be shy on output. So I’d overcompensate with the active pickups.more

'I retired my ’72 Custom last year. It’s such a beautiful guitar, and I don’t want to get it banged up.'”more
Got this for my 14th birthday, and it's been dropped, I've fallen on top of it, and played it until the finish on the back of the neck is worn off. It still grooves, plays perfectly, and has plenty of life in the frets. My old buddy, with Wolfetone Legends replacing the original pickups.
Worn and has been lit on fire But still one of my best sounding guitars. Mods Include Black pick guard and locking tuners. Strings D'addario 11-49
Just a really great guitar, probably my second favorite axe next to my strat but it is relatively new maybe 5-6 years old all stock except I put covers on the pickups.
