This one is a KEEPER!
We're guitar players, right? How many times have you gotten a new guitar, you love it right away, and you say "I will never sell this guitar"? Then, a while passes, you fall for another one, and you end up selling the guitar...
I switched back from playing bass (for 34 years!) to guitar. I've had at least 50 guitars and basses over the years, but never had a Gibson. Until now. I've had 5 Epiphone Les Pauls, and was going to get a Gibson LP, but wanted something different this time, and something lighter that still has tone with guts. This is it folks, I got it last Monday (it's been a week now) and I must say that this guitar speaks to my soul. Pretty certain this is my forever guitar. She already moved ahead of my new Nashville Tele for my #1 choice.
The factory setup was so-so, which I expected. I did a full setup on it, string change, string height adjustment, and intonation. Didn't have to turn the truss rod at all. Now the action and intonation are on point, and it plays like buttah. Just beautiful. These pickups are hot and bluesy and sound meaty when needed.
If you are lucky enough to grab one of the last 2016's, don't hesitate as I'm sure stock is limited or maybe even gone already.
Oh, how do I love this guitar, let me count the ways...
One last thing, I will NEVER sell this guitar.....haha (Seriously though, NEVER EVER EVER)
