General Your general opinion of this product. this is the first gibson that has noisy humbucker pups,i took it to thier service center and was told everything is grounded but they could try to replace the pups,i went to my local music store & tried another one with open coils same thing so i left it alone for now. gibson must be making them hotter now for some reason i have the same pups on a sg special 490r & 490t and no noise. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? mine has finish issues dull area under neck pup & front of guitar you can see where they joined the wood together looks like they used three pieces it shows right through the gloss ebony finish. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Can be bright & snappy probably because fretboard is maple this is something I like and it still has that dark & smooth les paul tone as well,as I stated before pups are hot or over wound. Guitar has a lot of static electricity for some reason it's like a dust magnet,maybe it was overly staticaly charged for the paint & finish to take to it on high gain you can hear crackling as you slide your hand up & down neck even after you dust it off. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Not as good as I would of liked "see above" I didn't return it because all they had left was scratch and dent I may have ended up with one worse,if static noise don't stop after I wipe down with an antistatic dust repellent I may have to send off for warranty.
Awesome Guitar!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This Les Paul is very well made. Frets are smooth and level. No flaws, intonation was spot on. General Your general opinion of this product. This a great price for this guitar. Made in USA and high quality. I bought 2 of these Les Paul Junior Special. The other on has the P90's. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Has that great Les Paul tone. Very smooth neck pickup, bridge pickup is brighter. Both together sound great. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish is perfect, I could find no flaws. I got the Ebony.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The guitar had a large dent (pencil eraser sized) on the back side of the body upon removal from the gig bag. No evidence of damage was visible on the cartons. Would seem that it was shipped from Gibson that way, or I received a "dent & scratch" item instead of the "new" guitar I paid for. General Your general opinion of this product. Very disappointed. I've collected many guitars over 40+ years of playing including a Rickenbacker 360-12, Gibson SG's, Fender Tele's and Strat's,a Takamine, Ibanez RG, etc. I've never received a "new" guitar in this kind of damaged condition before. As an active musician and collector, I was really excited to add this guitar to my "family". It was a great looking guitar and seemed well made except for this defect. I hope this is not an indication of the way Gibson is doing business today. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Stain color looked great except for the DENT.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It's put together well General Your general opinion of this product. This one should have not left Gibson's Shop! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Pickups sound great. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I ordered the tobacco color. This one had a finish flaw on the top front of body....The guitar had some thick scratch damage under the gloss finish

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? As I mentioned before, quality control got this one right. General Your general opinion of this product. This is one of the best Gibson’s I have ever owned. The baked maple was a great surprise as to over all feel. It was much darker than in the pictures. I know people have complained about the BM but it is not an issue. It also seems quality control has gotten better since I bought my 60's tribute last year. Jump on the guitar before it is gone. Les Paul Juniors with HB are the best. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Very mellow pickups. I would think it would be great for blues and classic rock, not much more. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Paint was awesome. I love the feel of satin. No missing paint like my 60's tribute.
