Sound — 10
It has good "metal" noises, distorts very nicely. I use a small Marshall amp that can simply amplify and distort it. It's best used on a "5" setting volume, and a 8 setting tone. It has full sound, it can practiccaly make any noise, except the noise a whammy bar makes.
Overall Impression — 10
I've been playing it since I was 12 in 1972! I actually didn't want to, my older brother had threatened me that if I didn't play guitar, he'd beat me up! All I know is it the best quality one I have ever seen!
Reliability & Durability — 6
I use it in my band "GuessWork", I play live in our city park, and I've had it since I was 12. It seems the pickups will last another 25 years or so, after a while though, the back is getting kind of torn, but not much. It's in good condition.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
It was obviously made nicely, with the 2 pickups set up nicely. I have no opinion, though.
Features — 8
The guitar is a '68 Gibson Les Paul Standard. I paid 2,110 bucks on the thing! It's made in America, it has Grover tuners, mahagony neck, 3 layers of ash wood on the body. It has a single cut-away on the left, and has the same amount of frets as a normal acoustic guitar. Instead of dotted frets, it has clam shells on it. It came with a case, a strap, and a cord.
