Sweetwater and Gibson....mmmmmmm
I was in the market for a new electric, and the new line of Gibson Les Pauls really caught my eye. I am not a big fan of all the bells and whistles that are on so many guitars these days...and the LPJ looked like a real winner. I ordered it last Friday, and it arrived Monday afternoon. Blown away by the speedy delivery
The LPJ is beautiful...the pictures don't do it justice. Has a great feel...great neck, good weight, and the finish is gorgeous. Plugged it into my Blackstar HT5, and she purred. The 61 pups Gibson put in it are great...very responsive. Cleans up really nice with the volume knobs...and the tone knobs really help you dial in the tone you're looking for.
My only complaint is that I'll have to do some work on the neck pickup...as it gets crazy muddy on the overdrive channel.
That being said...if you are looking for a genuine, Made In The USA, Gibson that has the tone and nothing else...this is the guitar for you. Very minimalist in looks...but that's just my style. Well done Gibson...and Sweetwater...well...you know. Thanks!
