A dream come trueAfter 20 years of wishing, I finally ordered my first Gibson. I had always been a fan of the flamed maple tops, and when I saw the new 2012 Standards, I knew I had to have one. No other company posts high res photos of the guitars so you can carefully look them over. I really like how Sweetwater takes the time to do this. My sales associate Geoff Allen was very professional and efficient. I knew these guitars sold quick, and Mr. Allen really made an effort to make sure I was completely satisfied with my guitar. He even called me after to ensure everything was perfect with the guitar.
The Standard is perfect. The flamed maple top is stunning. It truly is a piece of art in itself. When I'm not playing the comfortable speedy neck or messing around with all the push/pull pots I just stare at it. Heck, it even smells good, like warm marshmallows.
The tone out of the Standard is amazing. World class product. I am very proud to own my 2012 Gibson Les Paul Standard and equally impressed with the level of service I received at Sweetwater.
