New Lefty Les Paul Studio for 2012
By: Geno J from Austin, TX
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Overall very good, however, one of the volume knobs was "off" as it was not aligned with the other 3 in the full off or on position. Easy enough to fix as the knobs just pull off but really it's a new guitar.
How has it stood up over time?
Too new to rate.
Your general opinion of this product.
Great finish and set up. The action was spot on specification and the push-pull knobs are a plus although I use them rarely. Stays it tune. Be forwarned AMS's picture is of last year's model. The 2012 has gold speed knobs and a cream pick guard which I think are sharper.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Nice feel. Heavy, yes, it's a LP even with the "modern" weight relief.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Very snappy and the pickups are hot.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Great grain and finish on the guitar.
How was the action out of the box?
As earlier stated, perfect set up and the action is fast with the narrow neck which I really like.
