If you like the look of the sunburst Gibson les Paul then you will dig this guitar. This guitars is very sleek and sexy looking instrument. The sunburst color just pops when you see this guitar in person. Any picture you see of it just doesn't do the guitar any justice at all. It is one of those must see to believe slogans that people say, only this time it actually is true. This guitar is just stunning to look at and the he overall paint job is one fine look. The look of this guitar is simple exquisite to see at in the light. My favorite color for the Classic Les Pauls have to be the sunburst, so I am a little biased towards this guitar.
The tone of this guitar is very nice like most Les Pauls. It is a tone that will forever be in rock in roll music. I think Les Pauls sound the best with a Marshall voiced amp. I love the way they feel and respond to the voicing of a Plexi or an 800 style amp. They just blend perfectly together. These necks are pretty beefy. So if you like the feel of the 50's neck or just a thick neck then you will jive with the feel of this guitar. I prefer the feel of a Gibson Les Paul with the 60's profile style neck. So this neck is a little too much for my hands but its is still a good feeling guitar. I love the way the Gibson Les Paul feels and dos even though I am partial to the 60's neck I still like the feel of this guitar.
I highly recommend this guitar to anyone searching for the eight tone at the right price. These are not cheap by any stretch of the means but they are affordable for some. If you can chew on the $2000 price tag then you are golden. If not then I would suggest a nice Gibson Les Paul studio guitar for under $1000. This will get a much better tone and feel than a studio guitar can ever do.
Usually, you have to look at the Les Paul Studio to find a guitar that's all mahogany with the same shape as the Les Paul. However, that lacks some of the nicer features that the higher end models have, and the quality control can be a bit iffy. This is for those who want an all mahogany guitar with binding. The guitar features a mahogany body with a mahogany top, mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, trapezoid inlays, pickguard, binding, hard tail bridge, two humbuckers, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.
The guitar was put together fairly nicely. There were no issues with the nut. The best way to tell is to simply play it. If you keep noticing you're going out of tune and it "pings" when you tune, that means the nut is cut improperly. The fretwork was also pretty good on this. I was able to achieve relatively low action without any real issues. The binding work looked nice, and the gold hardware didn't have any tarnish on it.
The guitar sounded pretty strong in the low end, but I couldn't help think that it wasn't quite as "Les Paul" sounding. The bridge has some nice bite to it while remaining fairly thick sounding. You could easily do everything from blues to heavy metal with this thing. The neck pickup had a nice vowely tone, but I prefer hotter and smoother neck pickups. Keeping the tone knobs on full helped get the I wanted, but it still didn't have that "cut" that I like.
These are very thick sounding guitars. If you're a fan of that Studio tone, you'll love these guitars. If you're a fan of the Standard tone, you'll probably want to avoid one of these, unless you want something with a bit of a different tone. These tend to be more midrange heavy and focus more on the low end than that upper bite that Les Pauls are known to have.

I expected at first - Les Paul reputable forces - has had a heavy guitar, heavy trs.
I t surprised by lifting: it is the same weight as my Start U.S..
The handle is very well. We do not play it like recess on a stratum, but you get used to rev quickly. The scale is shorter than a Start, so the boxes are smaller.
The action is low trs.
I feel like I have to make a guitar that can play with finesse, nuances, soft trs.
Gnral for ergonomics, Access in acute everything, well it's a Les Paul.
I play mostly rock, blues.
The classic '57 pickups suit me perfectly, they have a less aggressive sound that microphones found on standard and studio. It's the sound of the Les Paul Annes 60-70. There is not a buzz, we just put the guitar with the amp turned on it yazro parasites.
For the rest, again, it's a Les Paul, so big sound, sustain ..
Reue a month ago.
I like her look 'old scratch', but I think I'll let a little sun and moon, the history of plastic and other binding tarnish. L then it will look like an old Les Paul.
It's a good guitar trs, trs well finished down to the last dtails. I disassemble Access in knobs to see it well RALIS trs.
Report qualitprix, well it is may be a bit expensive for a guitar (1875) but good was one of the pleasures of life
