Great sound and excellent workmanship
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
The guitar played well out of the box, although I had the truss rod adjusted to fit the string height and intonation to suit my particular needs. The craftmanship is outstanding and I have no problem with the chrome knobs. At first, I was skeptical about having the G-force robot tuners in lieu of manual tuners, but I've become accustomed to them. Overall, the guitar produces a deep, warm sound compared with other Les Paul guitars and an Epiphone SG which I own. The gig bag also is well padded and provides good protection, although I decided to use a SKB Les Paul hard case for maximum protection. I don't regret this purchase.

Not as great as I hoped
What is your opinion of this product?
Everything is nice except the fret board and the pickups. I would have preferred the more powerful 57 pickups instead of the 61's. The fret board is not great. Hard to get good low action. I picked up a 2016 HP Gibson SG and had the same issue. I might add that the volume and tone caps are not metal. Don't like the 2017 chrome plated caps, would have preferred the 2016 style. But on a positive note, I like the adjustable titanium nut.
