Les Paul Special
By: Glenn from Sevierville, TN
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The fit, finish, and feel of this guitar is pure Gibson. Nice setup right out of the box. The P90s are incredible. I checked it over closely when it came in and it was perfect.
How has it stood up over time?
Just got it so time will tell. It's a Gibson. I expect it to be around for a long time.
Your general opinion of this product.
P90s and the blues through a tube amp. What more could you ask for?
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Nice setup right out of the box. All Ive done is change strings (Ernie Ball Slinky fan), and I did lower the bridge just a little bit. Feels great.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The P90s take a little getting used to. You have to tweak you amp a bit. They really drive my little Bugera V5, I had to turn the gain to almost 0 to get the breakup that I wanted. It was different on the Marshall, left the settings the way they were and proceeded to wake the neighbors.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Beautiful. First guitar with a satin finish and I love it.
How was the action out of the box?
Very playable right out of the box. I could have left it alone and been perfectly happy, but I like to tweak my stuff and get the most out of it.
