I just bought it this afternoon!
I tried it out at the shop on a Blackstar H5 tube amp.
It's beautifully crafted , with a superb lacquer! Mahogany body, maple top... it's heavy (not chambered like the new Gibsons).
The electronics is incredible, totally shielded! Perfectly installed, great condensers, well assembled.
The finishing shows a real quality and know-how, seems like a gifted craftsman's work - not something out of a factory.
Neck is rather thin, very pleasant and easy to play, a real pleasure!
Clean sounds are beautiful, I never thought such beautiful clean sounds could come out of a Les Paul...
Overdriven sounds are awesome! Accurate, thick, dense, I feared what the result would be but wow, it ROCKS! Huge sounds, you can get everything, SRV's solos, blues, hard, crunch - everything!
Pickups: the MK2 humbuckers are totally breathtaking!
Pros: great value for money, I wanted a Standard Les Paul, here it is, this one's in no way inferior to a Gibson... Its sound, building quality, Made-in-Japan quality finish: just ask any instrument maker or repairman what he thinks of it!
Cons: can't think of any right now...
I got it for €999, 30% off the original €1300 price because it had a small scratch on the headstock from the moment it was unpacked. Tried it and bought it on the spot, with an additional Gibson case for free!
