Sound — 10
It sounds great with any style of music. I use a Line 6 Spider 3 75 watt combo amp with it. It is a great amp for the price. It has many settings.It is not noisy at all. It doesn't hum. The guitar has a warm sound.It is a very full sound.I think it sounds a lot better than a studio les paul.

Overall Impression — 10
I play all types of music. I have been playing for 3 years. I would definutely buy another if it got stolen or lost. I love everyting about this guitar.The neck is very fast.My favorite feature is the pickups. I wish it had a floyd rose.I chose this guitar because it looks completely different fom the other les pauls.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar has never given me problems and I have had it for a year.The finish is just as good as it was a year ago. I think it will last longer than me.I think I would still have a backup just incase something happens.I think the hardware will last.I think this guitar will keep its sound for a very long time.

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The action was perfect when I got it. Everything was set up. The only problem was the nut.The b string was cut too deep, so it buzzes. It only cost about $6 to get a new one though.The tuners hold very well. They never go out of tune.It was polished when I got it.

    One person said if you slam it on concrete it won't break . Try it I dare you . You will be the sorriest man in the world for quite a while . Yes it will break even if it gently fall on carpet and hits the head of the guitar it will break . Les Paul's are known for neck brakes . Jimmy has broken his number 1 more then a few times and that's a1959 . Just saying . All I play is Gibsons . I own 20 of them plus 10 genders and 2 PRS and misc. Guitars . Trust me don't drop any guitar . You wouldn't drop a baby would you ?
