Not a faithful reproduction of the original Les Paul Recording model
By: David from Bloomfield. NJ
What is your opinion of this product?
While the ad copy says this is "a faithful reproduction," "based on the exact specs of Les' own guitar" and also says it has low Z pickups, it's not. It only *looks* like Les' guitar.
This version has standard high impedance pickups with coil cut switches. The real guitar had stacked low impedance humbuckers that Les designed. This guitar won't sound anything like the original.
This one also does not have the decade switch, which was a series of caps to tune the highs, and the passive bass/treble controls.
This is just a regular Les Paul made to look like a LP Recording guitar, and lacks all the features that made it Les' favorite guitar.
