Sound — 10
The pickups are amazing and are very versatile. It's great clean for rhythm or good for metal with distortion. Blues and Classic Rock sound great, but you can get jazz or heavy metal out of it.
Overall Impression — 10
The guitar overall can't be put into words because it is so good. I could talk about it for days. But overall it is very fancy and versatile. I wouldn't trade it for any other guitar.
Reliability & Durability — 10
The guitar will last and it is very heavy. Mine is ten pounds, but they are typically around nine. I traded out the strap buttons for strap locks because I don't want to drop a guitar that nice and the weight would help put a dent in it, but they did look durable.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The hardware is nice. It came without a scratch or fingerprint. The finish is gorgeous in any color.

I got a 2011 Les Paul Traditional from Guitar Center. It was originally $2300, but I talked them down. It is is very nice and high quality. Don't turn it down because of the price, it is a very fancy guitar and you get way you pay for.
