Classic Archtop Custom Shop Gibson, 20 frets, 2 humbucker '57 classic bridge tune-o-matic type rglages Les Paul. Set Mahogany neck end and comfortable affects bne. Solid sitka pica table, wicker covers back and rolled in the Saddle. Nitrocellulose lacquer.
Finish trs correct but far from being perfect for the price (in classic Gibson).

UTILIZATION

Channel irrprochable, action level with the frets. Access in acute, that of a jazzbox and ergonomics-brief is cumbersome and sensitive to feedback, but we can not do better for the sound ...

SOUNDS

Trs rich jazz sounds. The microphone is more serious than the neck prs other Gibson (including 175). The sound is warmer and fatter, drink rich in harmonics.
The micro needle with a tube screamer and amp lights (I use an H & K 20W) gives you a great sound of Les Paul. However I use it only slightly, its clear he lacks personality. And then bending with 13-56 mesh dish ...
I do not put that 9 to leave room for guitars out of the ordinary, but it is remarkable and is aligned with the L5. the samples of the site are consistent with Gibson to get an ide.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for two months (I'm a hard spare) to play jazz and sometimes blues. I've been playing for 35 years on a little while and it's the best guitar I ever touch. I bought in the United States about 40% cheaper than in France, including taxes. Whereas if I do the sound, the ratio Q / P is not as good as my strato American Series, which is also a wonderful guitar, but for any other purpose. Against the cut by making an archtop guitar is suprieur that of a stratum of SERIES (mine is signed by James Hutchins, of the luthier for Gibson). So I put Galit and would do without this choice hsiter ... condition that dnicher another.
