Awsome Ax!!!

I have worked with Carl Bleke on several purchases from great amps like the Firehawk 1500 and the Blackstar Artist 30, my ES 335 Gibsom Memphis Custom. I truely thought this beginner had all I would ever need, but with the Blackstar tube amp I could not get the Les Paul Custom out of my mind. I have checked out many Les Paul models on the internet from different suppliers, but for the most versatile, feature packed players instrument, it was extremely difficult to ignore the Gibson Custom Limited Edition Alex Lifeson Axcess in Royal Crimson. The features are almost a challeng to remember from the Piezo Bridge to the custom Ghost tremlo, locking nut, and great Humbuckers. I may not have the skill of someone like Alex, but I believe I have an investment quality players guitar that should last me a lifetime of learning that is without equal. Thanks Carl Bleke and Sweetwater!

The sound possibilities are endless with this guitar. The configuration of this guitar makes it very versatile. I have other electric guitars with a piezo in the bridge and I was completely blown away on how this sounds through my acoustic amp. The non-chambered body makes a huge difference in sound. This is hands down the best playing LP I have experienced in over 20 years. My Sweetwater sales consultant, Ian, has gone above and beyond to insure that I was happy with my purchase. The communication and level of service is by far the best that I have ever experienced.

This guitar is everything the descriptions and reviewers say it is. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL and plays as good as it looks. I am a Rush fan and to play this is nothing short of WOW for me. Thanks to Alex and Gibson for a fantastic instrument. And thanks to Sweetwater for the great service! My Sales Engineer - Dave Brow - is the BEST!

Awesome Guitar!

I have a number of PRS, Fender, Ibanez, and other guitars. One of my PRS's is custom built with switchable humbuckers, piezo pickups, and midi output similar to this guitar (sans the midi). The Gibson just tears it up. The number of different tones on this guitar and their quality is amazing. My favorite is a blend of the piezo and humbuckers in serial mode. The Floyd Rose tremolo is so sweet. This is one of the most perfect guitars I have ever played - hands down! And I have played a large number and variety.
Music background: I am a hobbyist but have several professional musician friends.

Tone Monster

I own a few guitars and they all do certain things well. This guitar Does a lot of things GREAT!! It's got killer lows , sparkeling highs and a vast array of beautiful mids. Whether it's lead or rhythm, this guitar delivers! The neck is fast, comfortable and axcessable(pun intended). The tones are numerous without being complicated. Bravo Gibson!!
