INCREDIBLE! BEAUTIFUL and FUNCTIONAL!
I just received my Les Paul Standard 2017 T - Bourbon Burst guitar after research and painful deliberation given the multitudes of Les Paul's available today! Honestly, for a man who speaks a million miles and hour sometimes, I am almost at a loss for words as to my satisfaction with this guitar!
Let me begin by stating that Conner Smith, my Sweetwater representative, is the epitome of EXCELLENT customer service! I can be a very indecisive guy who can get rattled on all the options and variables in decision making. He stayed calm, was patient and steered me through all my purchase of this guitar and many other purchases with an HONEST opinion and not trying to "up-sell" me or any games like others may try. THIS GUY NEEDS A RAISE! ;)
Onto the guitar, I will be brief as i can. It plays unlike ANY guitar I have played in the last 40 years!! And I have played MANY! The modern building techniques have paid off in spades. The Sweetwater set up was EXACTLY how I prefer with low action and no fret buzz! The SOUND of the Burstbucker Pro pickups is just incredible! Whatever they did..they did it right! And I am a METAL guy so i want some heavy lows and sharp bright tones cutting through. This does that and more! I have not had time to experiment with the coil tapping, phase reversal, but I am sure that will be fun as well.
Trust me..if you want a classic les Paul feel and sound in your hands...BUY THIS!
I honestly could not be happier and I am one picky guy ( ask Conner :)
Sweetwater is my GO TO company from this day on!
Thanks so much for the incredible service!
