About the Les Paul Series
No matter where Gibson Les Paul is seen – in the hands of a star performer, silhouetted in a guitar dealer’s ad, or cast in brass and incorporated into the architecture of a restaurant – it is universally recognized as the symbol of rock and roll music. From the basic no-frills guitars to elegant showpieces, the guitars of Les Paul are the standard-bearers of Gibson’s excellence. More Details!

Feature:
The tune-o-matic bridge feels good! Great features are the 2 controls for each pickup!!! 2 volumes, 2 tune, 3 way switch. The tuners are high grade as is the finish. The features on the guitar itself are exactly what one expects when one purchases a Gibson. Nice warranty. Even the case that comes with this guitar is fantastic, sturdy, and very well made-nice on the inside to protect the guitar along with a ‘top sheet’.
The tone and volume knobs are easy to use, the pick-ups are fantastic, and the toggle switch gave you no problems at all. When you buy this guitar, it is no need to change because it is already a A+ in your book.

Quality:
It came with a few small cosmetic blemishes in odd places, like near the strap bolt by the neck. The frets were pretty good. The intonation and almost perfect intonation (like a 9.9 out of 10). It’s pretty good considering the horror stories.

Gibson has been great with quality and is good about fixing any problems. Other than that the materials used, the finish, fit and feel are top notch.

Sound:
The tone of this guitar is classic. That means it will never go out of style and in fact had a large part in inventing the style. It is full and inspiring. Sounds the way a Les Paul should:  great sound, nice, very smooth, warm tone, goes great with each channels (clean and overdrive), can get blues or hell anything out of it like acdc, or some aerosmith and etc. There are guitars out there that sound like this, though they are hard to find.  There is no other way to describe this sound. Perfect for you indie-lock and alternative fans and classic rock. Just add reverb to this thing and it sounds amazing! Playable to jazz and this thing can sound very lovely clean. This thing is meant to rock out.

Value:
You get what you pay for-a great guitar. These guitars have kept their value and you will notice that they go up in value after years. It is a benchmark sort of thing and this represents an excellent investment. Check latest price!

Ease of Use:
Everything is easy to use. All depends on how you play. If you’re a blues bender, you’d love it. But if you want to unleash some shredding fury, look elsewhere. The neck is thick comfartable and you can get around it easily, especially on the high frets, and you find it hard to believe that so many of the world’s greatest shredders actually used it.

Desirability:
Pretty guitar, great sound, feels lighter than the standard which is nice for the shoulder. Give many positive reviews on the looks of the guitar. This is because Gibson is known very well for paying attention to detail on aesthetics.

Overall:
You’ll be happy with this for the rest of your life that you continue to make and play music.
