Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Out of the box, this guitar was setup to perfection. Better than any of my other guitars that have been "professionally" setup. I'm not expert, but the quality of the parts and craftsmanship seems to be above and beyond my other guitars. This is my first custom shop guitar and the craftsmanship between this and my other guitars, again, is worth the price. General Your general opinion of this product. Best guitar I've ever owned and I've owned many. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone is incredible. Played through my Mesa Lone Star Special, Vox AC15, and Fender Reverb Deluxe Reissue. Sounded great each time. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Perfection. These guitars look as though they've been around for a while, but not the cheesy rode-worn look that you find in some other models.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The CS box was still sealed when I got this guitar. CS quality is as close as us average guitar players will get to original 50's Les Pauls. This 58 is solid as a rock. I have a few CS Les Pauls and all have been very dependable. General Your general opinion of this product. This 58's top has a very cool birdseye bookmatch on the pickup selector side. Everything is flawless and the sound through a tube amp is over the top. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Pickups are typical Burstbucker with that 50's PAF sound through a tube amp and a bit of overdrive. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The washed cherry color is stunning. Not too bright like the heritage cherry finish. Looks like an older guitar. The VOS finish has a cool vibe.
