I have always been a fan of the Gibson Les Paul guitars. Some of them can be hit or miss thought at times, but overall when you get a good one you fall in love with it and never get rid of it. These are great guitars when you get a solid one. Buying off the internet won't necessarily get you a good one. I would suggest playing one before buying.

SOUNDS

This is a player's guitar. This guitar is not a showroom quality of custom piece, but rather a good gigging guitar and a cheaper intro guitar into the Gibson Les Paul world. You can get a decent tone out of this thing. It is chambered so there is going to be something missing in the tone if you have played non-chambered Les Paul for any given amount of time.

These guitars sound great when coupled with a good Marshall style voiced amp or even a solid sounding older UK made Vox. I love the tone you can get with a good beefy Les Paul and a nice Vox Ac30. Use a nice booster pedal or a tube screamer and you will get some solid classic rock tones. Slap a good sounding analog delay in there and you will get a solid sustaining tone that will be fitting for most musical styles.

OVERALL OPINION

At new you can pick these guitars up for right at around $1320. Not a bad price for the intro to Gibson Les Paul guitars. This is a third of the price for a custom one and half the price of a standard one. It is double the price for a faded series studio so there are some even cheaper than this. I would recommend getting an older one as I don't particularly care for the chambered sound.
