General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
As a novice guitarist, this may have been going a little overboard on price, but I love the look, feel and the way it sounds on my Hughs & Kettner Amp. For a person who suffers from hearing loss in one ear, the Min ETune makes it very easy to tune this guitar. I am still working on building fretting callouses, but even with my fat short fingers, I find the board is easy to work on. I just wish my fingers could reach all the cords I need to play.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
It's a Gibson Les Paul Futura, 'nuff said.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
A bit heavier than I expected but the neck is easy to hold while fretting and the controls are easy to reach.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Don't know all the tone setting yet, but I like what I hear.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The Futura has a simple but elegant finish. No scratches yet.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Compared to my PRS Soapbar II, the future has a much more elegant sound and it holds a tune much longer. On the Soapbar, I have to tune it every time I pick it up.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
It seems good to me, but what do I know.
