Very good build quality.
The flamed table is beautiful, very soft touch varnish.
The tuners are accurate.
The strap locks provided are welcome, and the case is good design. The leatherette covering it is very beautiful, but perhaps more fragile than a case the usual Paul.
The handle is very comfortable, very close to that of my Les Paul Standard 1979.
The weight is therefore, this guitar is a traditional design. But to have had the chance to test two copies in store, I noticed that the weight was not quite the same between the two (probably density or drying wood that differs ...). My back already wants, but I took the heaviest!
I have 5 GIBSON USA (Deluxe 1972 Standard 1979 Studio 2010, Traditional 2012) and it is by far the one that sounds the best!
The sustain is incredible, the pickups have a beautiful grain. The knobs are very accurate.
In combination with a Marshall JVM 410 H head or head Marshall AFD 100 ... it is a killer.
I play rock, but this Les Paul is very versatile, you get very good clean sounds or crunch. For blues, rock, or jazz it will be just as excellent.
Obviously there is a Slash, and this guitar will surely interest fans ... but not that.
I have read on the web: "What, AGAIN a Slash LP, blah blah blah blah blah blah ...!!"
Friends guitarists know that besides the marketing aspect, this guitar is really a GREAT Les Paul.
I had the chance to acquire in a store that is aligned Thoto for lower prices.
Some will find it a bit expensive, but it is not the Slash logo you pay, it's really the quality of a guitar finish and sound practices.
A buy eyes closed.

This is a profile handle "slash"! But in all honesty, I do not really ressents difference with another standard thickness ... but it is very pleasant, as if there was I do not know what ...
The accelerator to acute does not bother me.
Slash pickups are terrible on this standard. This is happiness (I also have a les paul studio with the same microphones, but this one is really different). It is very hot and also very rock.
The handle is really good. Pleasant to touch.
The nuances of the game are really resentir, thanks also to the microphones, ranging attacks on the right hand.
The knobs are very precise, and playing with them is a real treat.
The weight does not bother me, on the contrary, it feels good and it is handy. She is very balanced.
Sound and really good. For my part, test store, she was by far the best compared to other standard and traditionnal of the same brand.
I play mostly on a weekday vs65r marshall, with the headphone (to bother anyone) and weekends on a JCM 401 DSL, and also a 5210. Nothing to say, it sounds in all cases.
Obtained thanks to the microphones sonoritées slash, but it is very versatile! I love all the sounds they emit, in clean, saturated bridge or neck pickup ...
I wanted this guitar because I think it is really maginfique and it sounds! I am thrilled when I play it. In store, vermillion stood out of her sisters already by its color. In truth, it really is more beautiful than the pictures on websites.
I also have a strao mexico gold sylver, TV baja, a special sg and a les paul studio fitted with slash. Since I have the vermillion, I do not touch the other, and have for sale.
I tested a bunch of gibson before my purchase, and I do not regret it.
I play rock and blues and this guitar is made for!
