  • Fantastic Guitar

    I bought one that had been hanging on the wall, the fingerboard was really dry, (had "fret sprout") so we oiled it well a couple of times, it rebounded perfectly, so now I once again have a real, Plek'd, Gibson Les Paul, only this one weighs about 8lbs instead of 13lbs like my old 67 Black Beauty. …

    After a tune up, it plays great! Thought I might need to swap out pickups for something hotter but I’m pleased enough with both. Faded model is no frills - dot inlay fretboard instead of block inlay, plain wood ‘clear’ finish is pretty but not the lavish sunburst finish of a Les Paul Std, etc. - but it suits me. Happy with my purchase.

    The guitar looked amazing. Very light. To light. I liked my epiphone les paul traditional pro better. Just didn't have that sound I thought it should. Fretboard was dry as a bone. I decided it was not worth it so I sent it back.

  • Great gigging platform!

    This guitar is new and still feels a bit "stiff". I love the neck and the fretwork. The pickups scream "Les Paul" and the finish feels amazing. The electronics are dead quiet as well....a big bonus. I love the look and don't feel the least bit worried about having this guitar out in any conditions....worth every penny spent.

    Upgraded to this guitar from Epi Les Paul Traditional Pro. Doesn't have the coil splits that I rarely used but does have a great Plekd neck and nice grade A maple top. Pickups sound clearer, very full and guitar looks nice. Still somewhat heavy at 8.4 lbs.desite ultra modern weight relief
