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!
This is the finest guitar that I have ever played!!!

General Your general opinion of this product. This guitar is just absolute quality!!! Pay the extra for it because you will never part with it, I won't anyway. I originally went for a LP standard & it had glue residue on the frets so I sent it back and decided to go for the upgrade, I don't know if it was devine intervention or what but this thing has me shaking my head with amazement. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I wouldn't send this back if I found 10 chips on the body!!! IT IS THAT GOOD!!! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? You can dial in anything on this thing with the right amp!!! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Flawless!!!
Bad volume pot right out of the box!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Considering that this guitar cost $4000 and had a bad volume pot right out of the case I have to say "well made" is subjective. Loved the enclosed check list where electronics were checked off. General Your general opinion of this product. For the price there should have been nothing wrong with this guitar. Aside from the volume pot there is buffing compound in all the corners and crevices. Not the QC I would expect. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Again only hearing the bridge pick-up but it's nice and clean and down and dirty with some overdrive. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Flawless, except all the red buffing compound still visible.
