General Your general opinion of this product. Gibson made in U.S.A. quality. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? the 490/498 combo will never let you down! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Mine is white and it looks great but it comes off real easy. It got scuff marks on the body and neck just in the first week from my guitar stand. If you get it in white BE CAREFUL.
Excellent Value

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This model uses traditional weight relief, not a chambered body, so it's denser, feels much better and sounds better than other low end Gibson Pauls I've tried. The fit/finish of the neck/body joint is perfect and overall fit/finish better than the others as well. General Your general opinion of this product. This is the best sub $1200 Gibson Paul I have come across and better than many over that price point, for that matter. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Solid tone. Tight, defined. You probably know what 498T/490R pups sound like and this guitar makes the most of them. I will likely swap the pups, nevertheless, but the guitar is a perfect frame from which to build upon. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I will take the inexpensive rubbed finish to save a few bucks on an otherwise high quality guitar.
Why not a Gibson vs Korean or Indonesian, etc?

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yes, very well made, better than GIbson has in awhile. They know they have to compete with slave labor from overseas. They've done it!!!! General Your general opinion of this product. Killer guitar. Lightweight, perfect nut and fret work with the new machine they use. The machine is called something, but it works, and the guitars are chambered so they sustain even better, and have an acoustic sound to them that makes this guitar just sound great both plugged in and unplugged. Play one, unplugged and you'll hear how loud the guitar can be without an amp. This is the sigh of a good guitar. The setup is a personal thing so if the strings are too high or the fret board is dry, oil it, and set it up to your liking or better yet, if you're not in the knokw of doing setups, have a pro do it. It's cheap and well worth it. You'll see what a rock, blues, country machine can be. This is as close to that as you can get. I'm going to get one and put Stainless Medium Tall frets on it so I never have to change them again, but only have I wear out these frets which will take a few y ears. Everything on this guitar reeks quality. It's US made and everyone knows what that means. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Bright and smooth. Great medium output to high output, but you can clean up the volume with just the volume knob on a good tube amp. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish is not the best, but it let'st he guitar breath, and yet it's still pretty. It's not that 987 clear coats guitar, but it's a US made killer guitar..
