The neck is thick and round, very pleasant to play, the highs are a little less accessible but still playable (matter of habit). The mechanical Gibson Deluxe fit perfectly the agreement.


Nothing to say this is a Gibson Les Paul, a warm and round with pronounced bass.


My guitar is 2 years old and gilding at the bridge and the bridge pickup is cleared (or I ask the right hand, because of sweating). This is a "Studio" done for studio use, aesthetics is reduced compared to "Standard" and "Custom", the varnish is more fragile and the slightest gust mark quickly, the sound itself is the same . I do not regret this purchase, this is a real Gibson Les Paul made in the USA, delivered with Flight Case "Gibson USA" inside "toupee" and certificate of authenticity "Made in USA". The only drawback is that the mechanical buttons and yellow plastic that spoils the overall appearance a bit.
