General What is your overall opinion of this product? I in a Country? Southern Rock Duo and I have been looking for one guitar that can get all the different tones I need. This guitar does it in a big way. I love it. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? The workmanship and quality are excellent. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The neck is really nice and the guitar is very light. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Every tone you could one is in this guitar. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I bought the guitar in Fireburst and it is really beautiful on the figured maple top. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Value is awesome. Playability How was the action out of the box? The action was great for players that like their action really low they would need to adjust it. Which on this guitar is very easy.
Much more unoversal then I thought

Excels,The straightist neck I have found to date,I can bring the bridge to 1 turn from bottomed without noise,I didnt though I wanted it to sound in total toneality like it should! Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? manifisto crossant mhhhha Finish How did the stain or paint job look? No flaws Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?

General Your general opinion of this product. Overall this is an extremely well put together instrument...and with the 12 month option available there's no reason why you can't afford this quality Gibson. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Equal to my other Gibsons. A '66 Barney Kessel, '95 ES-5 Switchmaster, '08 Steve Howe ES-175, '11 Ox blood Les Paul Custom. I HAVE to keep it in it's case...if it's out then the chores aren't going to get done...you just can't walk by it and leave it alone. Everything from the neck binding to the gold plating just says $$$...in the car world you could say it's a Mercedes with a Chrysler nameplate and price tag. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Covers a little bit of everything. Once I got it out and tuned up I spent about three hours running through all the different configurations...if I'm not careful this could become my #1. A guitar for most every style of music. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Absolutely gorgeous. I went with the Antique natural. The flame is incredible...and oddly enough the back of the guitar is gorgeous as well...a honey mahogany that looks good enough to take a bite out of.
