I was totally stunned at the quality of this guitar for the price.
When I opened the case.I was in awe at the looks of this guitar.What your getting is basically a les paul std. , for less than half the price,minus the binding but with nickel plated tuners instead of those awful greenish plastic tuners. When I plugged it in and played with it , I was not disappointed.It sounds as good as any version of the les paul,(and L own a bunch).My sales rep. Chris Carter is a model of what a sales rep. should be. I cannot emphasize enough how helpful he has been through all my purchases at Sweetwater Music.Before you buy,give Sweetwater a try,I am sure you will be glad you did.
