This is my third Gibson Les Paul, the other two being Studios. After seeing the prices for the 2015 line I just couldn't pass this one up - a full blown LP Classic for the price of a Studio. The guitar is very well made, with the typical gorgeous-but-imperfect charm of any proper Gibson. The fretboard and frets were very well finished on mine, and the guitar was setup great out of the box. The G-Force tuner works really well, and I can't really understand the reason for all the hate - if nothing it is very easily swapable. The 57 pickups sound great, and I like the tonal flexibility given by the boost and the coil split. The only issue with mine was poor tuning stability caused by the brass zero-fret nut - the strings cut grooves into it almost immediately. However Gibson support was very helpful and sent me a titanium replacement in a very short time. In short, I'd very much recommend this guitar to any Gibson LP fan.
This was my first official Les Paul and after spending many weeks trying various years and specs i landed on the classic as it had the thinner neck and the High Performance spec.The 2015 range got a lot of negative comments i suspect from many people who have never tried one.
It has a great standard setup and it has the automatic tuning which performs well, occasionally it will do a odd tuning but press the button and strum the strings and it brings itself back immediately.
On the Classic it also has the boost switch which i was not too bothered about but i have found myself using more and more to cut through on a solo. The overall quality is great and compared to a 2016 standard it is half the price but definitely not half the guitar.
