Gibson Les Paul Standard DC
I owned a copy of the first series, "most wanted" (one wonders by whom!).
The hoop was a shame (frets square, more than doubtful accuracy).
Otherwise, aesthetically, it's true that she was not ugly: the mahogany body was flamed any but the table was pretty. That said, it's been ages since even low-end brands (Cort, Aria ...) to propose ... without displaying prices Caponiens Al Gibson.

UTILIZATION

body / neck is misplaced: contrary to what the pictures may suggest, the game beyond the 21st box is painful. This is not a SG ...
The guitar is clearly unbalanced: it leans on the side head is exasperating when playing standing. After this experience, I am now convinced of one thing: better a guitar heavy but stays in place.
Holding agreement is a nightmare!! And that, due to a design flaw: the handle is too loose and the body behaves like a rubber rod. I installed the top of the mechanical lock, nothing did.
Beside, my '58 Les Paul in 1996, equipped with mechanical vintage (and a round "baseball bat" well entrenched in the body) is perfect agreement.
Like what is actually in the old pots ...


SOUNDS

Sound dire bass. Not surprising given that the guitar has a "tone chambers" (yuck) and it was unnecessarily fine. The only interesting innovation lies in the cut at the stomach and right arm. But it paid dearly!
Add to this its anemic a pair of microphones obsessed by the media, you get the sound of a duck and temperamental constipated.
The fact that there is a volume and tone again diminishes the value of this sonic shovel.
The sustain is ridiculous (tonal rooms ...)
Well yes, to force the removal of wood, you end up losing their ...

OVERALL OPINION

My advice: buy yourself a REAL Les Paul, a 335 or an SG.
People Gibson tried to mix the three, but obviously it did not work ...
I must not be alone in thinking that, if I think the argus this guitar still has not taken off! After 13 years, it begins to long ... Fake good idea
