Gibson Les Paul Signature T Vintage SunburstThat ant no Les Paul on the intro to Sweet Home Alabama,that is untill now.The 57pups with coil split is truly awesome.This guitar has "Tone"to spare.You can push/pull in twang or or clasic bucker sounds.The fact thats its beautiful is an added bonus.This beauty can be mellow, with clear woody tone but can also get down in blues alley.This is the first time I've bought from Sweetwater but it won't be my last.Thanks to Joe Milne sales engineer for the added bonus(truss rod cover).

An awesome guitar!You get a great bang for your buck with this guitar. I just recently bought it to go with my fulltone ocd and my fender blues jr. When i went to play it, i was absoloutely blown away by the sounds! The mahagony back and the 57 classic pickups do the thing for sure. They sound just like the old ACDC or Van Halen records and are very versetile due to the push/pull pots. You get a whole different arena of sounds due to those knobs. As far as looks go, you can't go wrong. The flame top on mine is absoloutely beautiful and it looks just like a classic Gibson Les Paul. The only thing that almost turned me away was that the fretboard wasn't rosewood. Instead, it was grenadillo (Sweetwater says rosewood but its not). I was a bit concerned but after playing it, there is really no difference and quite possibly is better than rosewood. Overall, a great guitar, but i would suggest playing before buying

Beautiful playing machinePlaying it right out of the box. Easily the best looking guitar I own. The detail and finish could not be better. The QC at Gibson is perfect. This guitar is flawless and Sweetwater techs set it up perfectly. The only change I made was the bridge pickup. It wasn't hot enough for my taste. Put in a Duncan JB and I couldn't be happier. A perfect compliment to my 1980 LP custom. The 57 pickup in the neck is crystal clear. The independent coil tapping has added a lot of new tones to my playing. Great guitar for the money. Fits like it was made for me. Way to go Gibson and Sweetwater.
