I've played many chambered body LP's in my day and the sustain and tone does not compare to an un-chambered body. I play lots of country and southern rock, country is traditionally played on a telecaster, and southern rock is played usually on a les Paul both guitars will run you well over a grand each, but the split coil design allows you to play like you own both. the tone is orgasmic, and it is one of the greatest feeling guitar i've ever held.

UTILIZATION

This guitar is a jewel to play! Because of the low price I wasn't expecting this guitar to play or sound like it does! These Hum buckers make my Marshall sceam! The fact is this guitar almost plays itself, the 60's neck style allows for easy slide and fingering! The body keeps with the Les Paul true tradition! The sounds I am achieving are unbelievable! Sometimes I play for clarity and other times I play for feedback, this guitar does it all! It has quickly become my favorite


SOUNDS


I compared this to a Mira PRS, The Orville Les Paul, and Gibson Studio Deluxe. Mira PRS was thin sounding compared to this but very playable. Fender was disappointing on rhythm and power chords but good on blues riff (it did get good reviews). Gibson LP deluxe sounded good but had a fat neck with gloss finish that made it difficult for my hand to slide up and down the neck. This Orville Les Paul has great playability (satin finish on neck), thinner neck, and unbelievable tone (played through a Blackstar HT-5 combo).

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, very versatile like most of the Les Paul guitars are. This guitar will have you playing all different styles of music. This guitar was made in Japan and sound great and is well built. I still own mine, and pull it out from time to time.
