Neck Pickup Gibson USA Burstbucker 2

Rounded handle 1950's "D" profile + long tang (very fine and very comfortable)
Table Carved Hard Maple Cap With AAA Flame Maple Veneer

The table is very successful. Flaming is the Tip Top, the reflections are waiting for you. The finish is beautiful faded iced tea: The guitar is a bit "aged".
Without the shield is not bad.

Truly flawless finish. The case is also provided. Vintage effect!


Guitar heavy (Normal for a Les Paul) but lighter than an Epiphone Les Paul STD. access to acute unclear, but as qu'aficionados of the Les Paul I do not pay more attention!
Knob accurate. Wiring style 50 'inside. Attractive capacitor are doing their job too!
This is especially the point that differs from a Les Paul classic microphones + circuit.
You can really play with the knobs, not an Epiphone Les Paul STD ...
The volume and tone allow a broad sound palette.


To play ACDC, Guns N 'Roses, Lynyrd Skynyrd and everything that is rock, hard rock guitar is divine. Blues sessions are good ways to make it sing properly. The "bend Les Paul" etc. ...
His warm and hot, typical Les Paul. But be careful not to be confused with a real Gibson Les Paul STD in this case the Gibson buried. But good for 650 € you can not compare with the other that is worth 2000 ...
However you can compare a Gibson Les Paul Studio Epiphone LP in 59 'and it will be the reverse. The Studio is bland (the low-end Gibson finally € 1000 anyway) while the Epi has a character (thank you microphones).


Use in again, and I do it again this choice without any hesitation. This guitar is what most closely approximates that of a Gibson Les Paul.
This is a limited edition and that's a shame.
