    Very Happy

    After many years away from the guitar, i decided I wanted to give it another try. This time I wanted a quality instrument that would be a joy to play. I picked the right guitar! The tone and action are exactly what I was looking for. I cut the treble on the tone pots to get that warm, rich Les Paul sound. From a physical standpoint, this guitar is gorgeous; a work of art.
    Sweetwater service and delivery was excellent.

    Coil Tappin' goodness

    This is my first Les Paul, but not my first Gibson. I was a little worried about the Granadillo fretboard, as I wasn't familiar with this particular wood. Turns out it's smooth and fast, less porous than some rosewood boards I've played. Neck is the comfortable 60s shape. Finish was nicely applied, although there were some scratches around the strap peg and neck joint, like it was put on a stand in a rough manner. Not sure if that was done at Gibson or Sweetwater.
    My favorite part about the guitar is the coil taps. I usually play single coils, so it is nice to be able to split the humbuckers. One of my favorite sounds is the middle position, with the treble pickup coil tapped and the neck pickup in humbucker mode. This gives some bridge pu airiness and sparkle to the sound, while keeping a nice full bass from the humbucker. Very versatile!
