A Dream Guitar!!!
Kotsmix, 10.06.2019
I received this guitar from Thomann on 30/5/2019. On 2/6/2019 my band had a gig and I decided to use that guitar as my main instrument although I had never played in a gig with a Gibson Les Paul before (Always been a Strat guy). The result was that every member of the band was blown from the sound produced from that guitar. Now to details. The look of the guitar is astonishing!!!The build is excellent!!! No flaws for the specific guitar except the dry fretboard. Some lemon oil and was ready to go. The sound for what I play (Blues-Classic Rock) is amazing!!! The sustain is almost endless and the neck to my left hand felt very comfortable from the beginning. The volume and tone controls are very responsive to dialing. And once you get used to how they work, you can have a variety of plenty good usable tones. This is a heavy guitar (4,2 Kg). Although it has the exact weight as my Fender (The Strat 1980), it feels heavier. A good strap can take care of that. About playability. For me personally it felt like the guitar was just responding to my playing without any struggle at all. It plays much more easier than my Strat (Which I also love!!). Within a few words, this guitar for me is a killer!!!! Finally. Thank you Gibson for this piece of art!!! Thank you Thomann for responding to all my questions and quick delivery!!!

Classically awesome!
GerrySm, 20.04.2020
After many years I bought the guitar of my childhood dreams and memories. While I may have more expensive or cheaper guitars over the years, this will forever be "THE" guitar for me. I use this for at home practice and self indulgence, so won't be taking it on the road.

Pros
Sound: amazing clarity and tone across both pickups and across clean and dirtier tones. It's super dynamic, no matter what you want to play.

Playability: It's heavy, but that means you don't need to be super delicate in your playing. the fingerboard feels amazing, and the neck shape really suits me and my style (blues/rock)

Quality: the finish across the body and fretboard is stunning.

Packaging: the guitar comes with a lovely brown hard case and all the details of final inspection.

Cons
Quality: I docked one star under quality. The nut was poorly manufactured. While it didn't seem to have an impact to intonation or action, for this price I expect a top-quality finish in this area and as a result I've had to swap out the guitar. But the key is that I loved the guitar so much, I had to have it at 100%!

Overall
A wonderful guitar that is sure to not let you down

A proper Les Paul
OrcEire, 04.05.2020
Plays and feels like a proper 50s Les Paul. I think it’s a more accurate representation than most 50s re-issue models Gibson released over the years. Great sustain (thanks to all that solid mahogany body!). Chunky 50s neck, which isn’t for everyone but I personally prefer thicker necks. It’s a heavy guitar, though I always play sitting, so it doesn’t bother me. I play pretty much everything from blues to classic rock and metal and I’m pretty happy with what I’m hearing so far.

As pointed out by another reviewer, the nut section looks a bit rough. It’s just a cosmetic issue and doesn’t affect playability but still not something I’d expect to see in this price range. That’s why I took out one star from quality.

Shocked
BJC , 21.05.2020
I own many Gibsons. All great sounding and great to play. My only complaint of them would be having to go and get them set up and fine tune of minor details but, not a big thing.

I bought this Gold Top recently and I'm honestly shocked at how good it is. Firstly, it's eye catching! Incredibly beautiful and well made guitar.
The sound and tone are incredibly musical and by that I mean, it's very responsive to your touch in terms of how soft or hard to you pick/strum. Sustain is amazing, neck is beautiful!

Put simply, if you are looking for Les Paul, buy it!
