« Gibson Les Paul BFG »Publié le 05/04/07 à 15:00
I bought the Les Paul BFG for £700 (around $800?) in a coda music (Hertfordshire, England). I bought the guitar as it was the best guitar i've probably ever played. Also, it was also the only Les Paul i've played that i like and that suits me style of music.
Firstly, the unfinished finish is great. The gold unfinished feel of the wood is just to die for and it looks great just hanging from my wall. Also, the combination of the P90 and Burstbucker make a great teram when playing anything from clean blues, to full out metal. The action of the neck is also incredibly low and easy to play. There is no truss rod cover on this model, but it's deliberate to give it that unfinished, raw feel, which gives the axe it's own personality and character.
The strap buttons were quite small, but they were shortlived as I replaced them with straplocks. Otherwise, i have no peroblems with this guitar.
The construction, although unfinished, is well built with no signs of bad assembly or poor craftmenship. The guitar is made in the USA and goes to show the guitar is very well buiit.
This guitar is amazing and well worth the money I payed for it. It's probably one the best Under £1000 ($1100?) Les Pauls i've ever played. I'd recommend it anyone who wants an axe which is both flawless and affordable.
