The Absolute Best
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
It is hands down the ultimate guitar in a world filled with remakes and redone's...there is a reason why this guitar has remained the mark of quality even from a company of many fine instruments...it simply doesn't get any better. I own over 30 wonderful guitars...the Les Paul Custom is the pinnacle of my electrics.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
My two Customs are flawless...in build and sound! You can play anything with this instrument!
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Totally comfortable! I traded a 57 RI on on of my Customs...I like the feel of the Custom much better...not that there was anything wrong with the 57...for me, I just like the Custom better in all ways.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
It can be anything you want it to be...I like it for blues as the 490 and 498 pups sound smooth and glass like...different amps and pedals can shape anything but you need a great baseline tone to begin with...this has that in spades!
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
I bought the Black Beauty...with the gold hardware it looks positively regal! No issues at all!
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
No comparison; the quality of the overall guitar and the fact that it says Gibson Les Paul Custom sums it up!
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Nothing plays like a Les Paul Custom...Nothing!
