Sound — 10
It suits my style very well, because it fits almost every style. From metal to funk, from country to metal and from bluegrass to blues. The sound is amazing. I tried a Standard in the store and the sound difference was small. I bought a good cable with it so it's hardly noisy. The sound is full, warm and mellow like an LP should sound.

Overall Impression — 9
I'm in love with my guitar. It replaced my old Luna Neo Gypsy that sucked so this is a huge upgrade. I wouldn't buy it again if it was stolen, because of it's price. Gibson guitars are very expensive...

Reliability & Durability — 9
I think this guitar (despite his name) would be fine to play live. It sounds great and it's beautiful. The hardware is looks pretty solid. I replaced the strap buttons with strap locks to avoid falling guitars. I use it for almost everything and it's very reliable.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The Standard action was great. Low and easy to play, When I put my Standard strings on it (Ernie Ball 10) it produced fret buzz. I adjusted the Bridge and it disappeared.

I have a 2011 Alpine White Chrome Hardware. It has 22 frets. It's a really beautiful, classic Les Paul. It included a Gibson case that smelled like vanilla really strong (I'm not joking). It's weird but I don't mind.
