If you like the look of the sunburst Gibson les Paul then you will dig this guitar. This guitars is very sleek and sexy looking instrument. The sunburst color just pops when you see this guitar in person. Any picture you see of it just doesn't do the guitar any justice at all. It is one of those must see to believe slogans that people say, only this time it actually is true. This guitar is just stunning to look at and the he overall paint job is one fine look. The look of this guitar is simple exquisite to see at in the light. My favorite color for the Classic Les Pauls have to be the sunburst, so I am a little biased towards this guitar.

SOUNDS


The tone of this guitar is very nice like most Les Pauls. It is a tone that will forever be in rock in roll music. I think Les Pauls sound the best with a Marshall voiced amp. I love the way they feel and respond to the voicing of a Plexi or an 800 style amp. They just blend perfectly together. These necks are pretty beefy. So if you like the feel of the 50's neck or just a thick neck then you will jive with the feel of this guitar. I prefer the feel of a Gibson Les Paul with the 60's profile style neck. So this neck is a little too much for my hands but its is still a good feeling guitar. I love the way the Gibson Les Paul feels and dos even though I am partial to the 60's neck I still like the feel of this guitar.


OVERALL OPINION

I highly recommend this guitar to anyone searching for the eight tone at the right price. These are not cheap by any stretch of the means but they are affordable for some. If you can chew on the $2000 price tag then you are golden. If not then I would suggest a nice Gibson Les Paul studio guitar for under $1000. This will get a much better tone and feel than a studio guitar can ever do.
