What is your overall opinion of this product?
I own over 27 high end build guitars. Nothing compares to the tone, resonance and depth like my Gibson Standards. I love them all, and will probably have one buried with me.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
The quality is right up there with customs that I have paid twice the money for. The intonation is always spot on. They work so well with jazz, blues rock and metal. Look in any venue...there is a Les Paul...God bless him.!!!
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
I love the progressive neck comfortable, even after hours of play. The controls are smooth and efficient, for any level of player.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The Les Paul Standard has such a vast range of tone....my feeling is, if it doesn't produce it.....you would never need it.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Amazing finish work. I love the smell of NITRO anytime.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
The result far exceeded my wildest expectations.
How was the action out of the box?
The action was good, but I dropped it to my liking, which is about the thickness on a medium pick, when placed at the 12th fret is held in place by the string. That is LOW...and no buzz...GOT TO LOVE IT.
