Got mine today
Im a pro guitar player and guitar teacher, also studying, Had one SG two Strats one Mustang, one Les Paul, in the past. Gibso Midtown Custom Its a very nice guitar, it sound and feel more like a Les Paul than a 335, and you got the easy going on the upper frets of a SG, you can hear the Les Paul throaty wood tone even with no amp.I think it is little more middle range, this thing really screams with the bridge pickup. And the other one sound very bluesy and jazzy. The strings were too high from the factory, and 4 of the 6 slots in the nut were not open completely, so the 4th string pumped out and others just didn't fit , I made the slots by myself quickly and carefully. Factory strings sucks, never got in tune,Gibson says it comes with an original gibson strings, well, for a guitar just made 2 month ago and non played by anyone I could thank Gibson for letting me know their string sucks. I swapped for D'addarios and got slick. Perfect work on binding, some little marks on the finish but too tiny to be important. Gibson should pay more attention to details, the round side of the F holes are kinda unfinished, come on people a little sand on the edges please, this is not a korean cheap stuff. Anyways that little details doesn't matter. I adjusted the guitar by myself , later on I will adjust it better, Im quite obsessive with the adjustment of my guitars that's why I do it by myself. The 6 string was too big for a 0.10 i guess it has heavy bottoms which i don't like at all. I put some light 0.10 and it goes smooth.
Sweetwater guys rock, attention is very nice, the site and everything. im still wondering what you mean with 55point evaluation because as I read you even set up the guitar, well not this one.The strings were too high, unplayable at all. The most of guitars come like that. Gibson people, please you can do better on details.
Its a Gibson , I had a Les Paul Standard and this baby is a Les paul mixed with a 335. But playable as a SG.
3 guitars in one. Im in love with this guitar.
Giving a 4.5 because it wasn't set up at all.
Thank you Sweetwater for the best online service. Keep it up.
