Highly recommendable

04.08.2016
The finish on this ES-Les Paul is gorgeous. As this model is a hollowbody, it doesn't weigh much, which is nice. Also the tone is great, versatile, slightly different from a PAF-style sound - at times even a wee bit stratocaster-esque, I?d say. The neck profile is comfortable. Superb playability. The only minor remark I got is that the nut slots are a bit tight, but that's a common issue and easily fixed. Overall, I am really happy with the guitar and the instrument inspires me to play more.

Good sound but underground processing and factory setting ...

Andi_E, 23.05.2016
I received the Les Paul at the weekend. V
The look from the front is very nice.
The sound is very good, slightly lighter than a solid Paula, but also more compact than an ES-335.
Due to the continuous ceiling one also has fewer feedback problems than with Semi-Acoustics with FLöchern.
The neck has a very pleasant profile for me - not too bold, and after appropriate adjustment of the neck curvature and strings, the instrument can also be played very easily.
The pickups deliver a very good vintage sound; With the Volume and Tone controls, it works very well.

BUT the quality of Gibson ...
- The instrument was virtually not set. Ear curvature and strings were unplayable in the delivery state. (Strings approx. 3 mm at the 12th fret, nevertheless rattling and dead sounds). I took half an hour to adjust neck and bridge.
- The back looks like made in Taiwan from the 80s: The covers for pickup switch and electronics compartment have a gap measurement of 1-2 mm at each edge. The lacquer on the visible edges of the covers is not continuous. From the outside partly wood is visible. The edges on which the covers lie are heavily soiled (wood dust, chips, etc.)
- The entire inner life is not deburred and there are loose wood chips and dust inside the body.

I find it very disappointing that such shortcomings are not noticeable in Thomann's input control and that an instrument is delivered in such a bad attitude to a customer.
I can understand it with an instrument for under 500EUR; But with a UK from well over 3000 (THREITAUSEND!) Euro is already almost naughty.
I realize that the quality at Gibson is not the best in the world but that something goes out for the price is not good.

Conclusion: either provide more quality or require less money. In the price / performance combination the guitar is not a "container" ....
