Sound — 10
This is an exact replica of a Gibson Standard Les Paul, except better in terms of quality and price. It's a great guitar, I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a good guitar.

Overall Impression — 10
I think this is a really good guitar and Rondomusic. Net sells a really nice case with it too for an extra 60. This guitar is worth it, stock pickups are good.

Reliability & Durability — 10
Solid like a rock.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Everything was set when it came, action was well adjusted, GHS Boomer strings. Everything was good.
