What is your overall opinion of this product?
I have never seen quality like this, except in my vintage Martin D-28!
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
It is a perfect rock guitar, but it can play the blues like it was made for it
as well as almost any style of guitar music.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Chunky neck but perfect, you know that going in on a 58' Les.
The controls are perfect, the Les Paul is the guitar that every who
knows what's up wants for a reason. It will always stand the test of
time because other than the Strat and Tele it is a design that is
perfect, the essence of American music history.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
It has a volume and tone for both pups, it is whatever you want or need.
The tones are so close to the real thing I think you could yank the guitar
part from a track and play it on this and not be able to tell the difference
from the original 58' Les Paul it was originally tracked on!
How did the stain or paint job look?
It is flawless and I have never said that about
a new instrument before, Gibson Custom Shop
is really firing on all cylinders!
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I had a discount code from paying off my last Pay as you Play,
so I got a tidy sum taken off the top, but if I paid twice as much
I would say this is worth it. It is a masterpiece of the luthier's trade!
How was the action out of the box?
It makes all my other nice electrics seem like garbage,
they are all being sold as I write this.
Any Les Paul would make me proud to own another one as I foolishly sold mine!!!!
