If you like the look of the wine red then you will dig this guitar. This guitars is very sleek and sexy looking instrument. The wine red 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 zebra humbucker pickups just top the cake for this instrument. The fine red color is simple exquisite to look at in the light. My favorite color is red so I am a little biased towards red guitars.

SOUNDS

The sound from the chambered Gibson Les Paul's is not as good as the the full bodied Les Paul's. I don't like the tone of the chambered in comparison. It is different tone not better or worse but just something that I particularly don't care for. This guitar sounds great as a Gibson Les Paul should aside from being a chambered. I like to play Les Paul's with a Marshall amp of some kind. The two are beautifully matched to each other like they were born to be together. The tone of the instrument is a great organic tone. The pickups are ok as I have never been a huge fan of the burstbucker pickups. In this guitar I would go with a Suhr Aldrich pickups set to get a more driven PAF style tone.

OVERALL OPINION

You can pick these guitars up new for right at around 41320, which isn't bad for a new Gibson Les Paul. This is the intro guitar in the the Gibson Les Paul's. There are some that are cheaper but don't have the glazed lacquer on the body as this one does. Plus you don't have to shell out a fortune to buy a custom LP or a VOS LP. This is a good price for this guitar and will serve the purpose it was intended quite well.
