General What is your overall opinion of this product? I HAD A 2012 THAT I WAS FORCED TO SELL, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. I DON'T BLAME AMS FOR THE QUALITY, BUT THEY SHOULD HAVE INSPECTED IT BEFORE SENDING IT TO ME. THE BRIDGE PICKUP COVER WAS BROKEN , THE 2 TONE KNOBS TURN IN AN EGG SHAPE , THERE IS A DENT UNDER THE PICK GAURD . REALLY DISAPPOINTED. GIBSON SAID THEY WOULD SEND ME REPLACEMENT PARTS , I STILL DON'T HAVE THEM. I HAVE ALREADY TAKEN OFF THE BROKEN RING MAS IT IS CALLED. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? I DON'T KNOW I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO PLAY IT SINCE GETTING IT JUST AFTER CHRISTMAS. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? SAME AS ABOVE Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? DITTO Finish How did the stain or paint job look? NOT GOOD Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I FEEL RIPPED OFF Playability How was the action out of the box? SEEMS TO BE TOO HIGH, BUT I WOULDN'T KNOW BECAUSE I HAVEN'T PLAYED IT

General What is your overall opinion of this product? Great guitar, got it at the 2013 price slash day, ridiculous savings, thanks AMS! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Nice appointments, locking Grovers, TonePros bridge and tail piece. The electronics are to much, coil tapping, phasing... boring. Give me a volume and tone and let it rip. Gibsons quality control on the electronics leaves much to be desired. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The neck is perfect, not to big and not to small. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The Burst Buckers make it sound a little Strat like and that's cool. Tone all day long. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Beautiful finish with the addition of that vanilla smell. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I would have never paid the normal price before the 2013 liquidation, but what I paid was well worth it. Playability How was the action out of the box? Played like a dream right out of the box, not many guitars can boast that.
Excellent Guitar and AMS delivers perfect transaction

General What is your overall opinion of this product? I just purchased the LP Standard in Desert Burst and couldn't be happier with the guitar or AMS. The finish is exactly what I was looking for, some flame but not overpowering. The burst transition is perfect and the overall presentation of quality is very high. AMS delivered within 2 business days so I went from dreaming to playing in no time. I ordered by serial number so I got the exact guitar I viewed on line and highly recommend AMS to anyone looking for a new axe. I was very skeptical ordering a new guitar without actually seeing or playing it, but AMS represented it perfectly and I am a very satisfied customer. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Typical high quality from Gibson. Arrived in tune and ready to go! Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? 60's neck is way better for me then the 50's style. Fits perfect and allows for reaching the higher frets easier. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Exactly as advertised. The humbuckers growl and the push/pull function brightens to a single coil. Love the bypass feature. Really adds depth to the overall tone. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Excellent. Plenty of character and no blemishes. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Outstanding value! I purchased during the end of year clearance and save hundred's. Playability How was the action out of the box? It was tuned down a 1/2 step out of the box which was perfect for the first song I wanted to play. Easily retuned to standard and stays there.
Holy Cow!!

General Your general opinion of this product. She is a sultry, screaming beauty. I havent touched any of my custom Jackson Kelly's, My ESP LP copy, or my Tele since my girl arrived. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This is of the highest possible quality, everything buttoned down tight with a feel of quality craftsmanship. She even smelled nice when opening the case at first. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Very woody tone when unplugged, like the taste of a good whiskey on your favorite womans kips. The pickups are fantastic, I can only compare to my EMGs on ESP or the Seymour Duncan JBs/59s on my Jacksons. They have the PAF tone of the JBs, but with a much sweeter midrange. They clean up nicely when you back off the volume and get dirty at full throttle, all the while letting the tone of this guitar shine through. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? down right gorgeous, the pictures on this site do not do it justice.
Outstanding!
