    Drean Guitar For Me

    It's been some time since I had a Les Paul. I ordered this one am amazed at it in every way. Rumors of Gibson QG issues had me concerned- no problms here! This is the best quality Gibson I've owned. Intonation is spot-on, electronics are smooth and noise-free. Tuners are dead on. Neck is big and beefy - love it.
    I highly recommend this guitar. I love how Sweetwater lets you select from different guitars. You can choose your guitar according to your likes- weight, grain, etc.
    Came fast in a great, solid case.
    Thank you Sweetwater!!

    Gibson Les Paul Traditional (Gold Top)

    I ordered this guitar on September 05th, 2012. I received it on 09/14/12.
    Sweetwater's photo gallery was instrumental in my selection of this guitar. At the time, they had 4 of these in stock. I picked one that had a beautiful 1 piece back that had a gorgeous swirl in the mahogany. They sold all 4 of these guitars in no time at all! This guitar was just what I wanted. Non chambered body is heavy, but oh what a tone you get! The guitar is a tone monster with lots of power,sustain, and bite. The fit and finish were superb. The gold color even looks more like the old antique gold. This guitar ROCKS!!! It will be in my permanent collection till I die. I have always had great luck ordering
    new Gibson guitars. The craftsmanship shines.
    My sales engineer, Matt Adams was very caring & helpful in the whole
    order process. Sweetwater set up my preference in string brand and
    gauge on the guitar as well before shipping it. That is great service!
    You will love this guitar, it is just old school awesome!!!! Kudos to
    Gibson for another great guitar that knocks it out of the park.

    Gibson Traditonal Gold Top

    What a beautiful piece of art! This guitar plays like heaven! I have been playing for over 30 years now, and I must say this is right up there with the best......If you want to spend more for an expensive model (year), go ahead? I am sure it will be just as good.......But this is one keeper for me...!!!!
    You really can't go wrong with Gibson anyways....
    I highly recommend you to get yourself an SKB Les Paul molded case to go with it, with TSA locks. In my opinion, the Gibson case is kind of "el cheapo".....I would not trust carrying my guitar around with that case!
    It is ok, but.....get yourself an SKB...
    The Gibson case is only good enough for shipping purposes......BUY THIS GUITAR....you will not be glad you did so.........
