Play this guitar with a nice Marshal or British flavor amp and you'll see what rock n roll was back in the 70's. This guitar combined with a voicing of that famous British tone is just a match made in heaven. The tonal bliss of striking that first chord and letting it ring out in a blaze of heavy saturation gain is a thing or pure beauty. You won't want to put this guitar down for one second as soon as you get it home.
I think the fingered maple top on this guitar adds a nice element to the overall tone of this guitar. The mahagony wood can wood very warm and dark and with the maple you get some nice highs that help round out the overall feeling and tone of the Les PAul.
I wold recommend this guitar to anyone who wants something that is a little better than a studio in its construction and the aesthetics. The cosmetic of this guitar are just beautiful. The top notch maple burst on top adds a great look to a fantastic feeling guitar. At new these guitars come in right at around $2299, which isn't all that bad for what you get. This is a AAAA maple top or anything but a very light and mild fingered top that is gorgeous.
