General What is your overall opinion of this product? It's a Gibson LP Studio w/ P-90s, that part speaks for itself. Tone, feel, setup - it's all there. This guitar is a steal at the price. For slide guitar / alternate tunings, changing the tuning all the time gets to be a hassle. The Min-Etune really speeds things up, this guitar is perfect for that application. It's a little bit quirky, the tuners turn backwards, and the menu system takes awhile to figure out. Also the user's guide did not ship with the guitar, you have to download it. But the convenience makes it more than worth it. (That said, if you only use standard tuning, I wouldn't bother with a robot guitar at all.) It shipped with 10s, heavier gauge strings are probably not a good idea. The Min-Etune is not quite professional grade, but for practice it is incredibly handy.

What is your overall opinion of this product? One word: Friggin' Awesome. Okay, that was two words, but this guitar deserves the all you can say about it. I have been watching these for awhile as I love Les Pauls with P-90's. Gibson makes one hell of a P-90. This guitar is a tone monster. Anything you want to play comes out sounding like angels from heaven. So here we go for the review: I purchased the sunburst. I have to admit I was on the fence as the images did not look that great. However, in person the finish is much more rich, yet muted. The neck: Its a 50's style Gibson Neck. Dare I say it, but the best neck you will ever play. Fret finish is perfect from the factory. Fingerboard was great after a thorough conditioning. Playability: Perfect set up from the factory. E-tune: Amazed by this. I have refuse to buy a Les Paul with one in the past, but at this price I figured why not. Very impressed. Overall: At the $629 Weekly Deal Price - this guitar is an absolute steal. BUY IT!

What is your overall opinion of this product? nice feel, great smooth sound. The e-tune makes drop down a snap. Sounds better than my fender, with the pick ups can really wail, I had to turn my volume down this guitar cranks it out.

What is your overall opinion of this product? I bought a 2014 Traditional Les Paul less than a year ago and this 50' Tribute simply blows it out of the water! Sure the Traditional has nicer appointments and such but you can not beat the 50's Tribute with the P90 pickups! Also, the neck of the 50's Tribute is to me between a 59 and a 60's style neck, it is fast and just thin enough that your hand doesn't cramp up. Having gloss finishes on all my other guitars, and the 50's Tribute having a sheen/matte type finish is something I really like. Set-up from factory was not exact but truss rod adjustment and setup and she is playing great. The Min-Etune is at best a joke and although I knew it was on this guitar I swapped out with a set of Grover Rotomotics. The Min-Etune for what time I had it on the guitar would never stay in tune. Gig bag is very nice! Overall this is my favorite Les Paul...even over the Traditional! Gibson hit a home run with this Les Paul. Just glad there were still some in the inventory.

What is your overall opinion of this product? It is a snarling cabrone. I bought the most expensive model with the Gold Top and Mini Tune. Only a gig bag came with it, at that expensive price. The manufacture should re-consider that issue. This is a keeper and should have a OHSC.
