General What is your overall opinion of this product? While the ad copy says this is "a faithful reproduction," "based on the exact specs of Les' own guitar" and also says it has low Z pickups, it's not. It only *looks* like Les' guitar. This version has standard high impedance pickups with coil cut switches. The real guitar had stacked low impedance humbuckers that Les designed. This guitar won't sound anything like the original. This one also does not have the decade switch, which was a series of caps to tune the highs, and the passive bass/treble controls. This is just a regular Les Paul made to look like a LP Recording guitar, and lacks all the features that made it Les' favorite guitar.
Beautiful Work of Art & Sound !!!

What is your overall opinion of this product? I searched long & hard for a Graduation gift for my son (high school). This guitar looked impressive so I searched and could only find it here @ AMS. The customer service was amazing and made sure my last minute order was here the next day..just in time before the big day. We tricked my son into believing it was his older Studio LP. As soon as he saw it he burst into tears.. a reaction I wasn't expecting but it made me misty eyed as well. He plugged it in and jammed for the massive crowd that was here to help celebrate one of life's accomplishments. The guitar sounded loud, musical, and ready to rock n roll. great product, great customer service. Couldn't be happier. Thanks AMS!!! Especially the female manager working that day I made the order by phone!!! Thanks for making the celebration that much more special. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? AMS website allowed one to compare the 8 guitars they had, each by serial number. There were pictures for each guitar showcasing their unique qualities. It definitely helped me to select the guitar I thought my son would have liked. It worked. The sound is amazing and was so right out of the case. Great job Gibson for this beautiful rendition. A rare find (jewel). Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I don't play guitar myself but my son has a Gibson LP Studio and a Dean. He's never liked anything more than is Studio until now. He plays his guitar even more so now because he's even blown away by the play-ability and the awesome tone from this guitar. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Speaking of Tone from my last entry .. this guitar has a clean but aggressive snarl to it. The variation of settings you can adjust make it more versatile. Any guitar players dream. Again, Good job Gibson. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The Stain on this particular guitar looked amazing & flawless. Most people who were here for the graduation party didn't even want to touch it for fear they would tarnish it. Very sturdy and it was great AMS displayed these particular guitars on their website with different pics to show off their unique differences. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? One could always wish the price was lower because nearly 3 grand for a guitar sounds crazy!! But one must keep in mind the workmanship that went into it and the fact that it's a limited edition. More so, it was a modeled after the late great Les Paul's actual recording guitar. For that I feel the price was justified. Playability How was the action out of the box? I discussed this earlier not knowing this was going to come up, but my son and several other of our friends and relatives who were here for the unveiling were equally impressed and blown away by the Direct-out-of-the-box playability of this guitar. Minimal tuning was needed before my son had this guitar singing for the crowd!!
Les Paul's favorite guitar and mine too
