Product Description

The Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional is an electric guitar that has all the traditional features you expect from a Les Paul.
With a Mahogany body and set neck and a pair of Gibson's awesome '57 Classic humbucker pickups. Gibson is pleased to announce that the Traditonal is the first model to use the revolutionary Plek system. A computer controlled set-up that measures and dresses each fret measuring the height between the fingerboard and each string. This will eliminate string buzz and provide ultimate playability. Other traditional features are vintage style Gibson speed knobs, chrome Nashillve Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar and classic Kluson-style tuners by Tone Pros, which give this guitar the classic look of the 80’s that pursists will love.

Each Les Paul Traditional comes with Gibson’s standard black snakeskin case.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
In terms of how well this is made, it is manufactured and assembled very well. My intention was to find a quality instrument I could use when touring that wasn't a unique custom or too overly valuable. That being said, this guitar is made very well. The fit and finish is 9/10. The only fault I see is in some of the way the wood is cut or marked under the lacquer. The colors aren't all perfectly matched on mine, so the back of the headstock has some interesting color striation on one of its edges. All in all, it's a sturdy, heavy (weight relieved, yes. light? no.) guitar that definitely does the job I need it for. I believe this will handle world touring as well as any guitar could.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall, it's a great guitar with a bold sound. It has a vintage taste, but I wouldn't identify it as a vintage tone. I am pleased with this Les Paul and don't see myself getting rid of it anytime soon. Very good workhorse guitar.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Big, bold and meaty sound. It's a little bigger in the bottom end than just about any of my guitars, except the customs (engineered for big bottom). There's a less refined tone (Vintagey, but not really quite vintage), but it's really a nice, raunchy kind of tone that could easily be used for evil. With hotter pickups, it'd be a screamer. The stock pickups have brought a new color that I didn't have in any other guitar before. (Only other Gibson is an old 60s SG Melody Maker, a demon of untamed fury).
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Pretty good. I addressed that earlier.
