Great piece of a legendary Les Paul guitar from Gibson. It has to be said that from 2018 the Gibson guitars returned to their standarts - no weight relief, great materials. It looks that they are really trying to turn their fortunes for better after years of struggling with these new model lines. Top notch sound, great built. The finishing is absolutely astonishing. If you are looking for a great sounding Gibson Les Paul guitar, this is the one to choose.

Rock essense instrument
Zbigniew Brzozowski, 13.01.2020
I am senior guitar player and my first Gibson LP Deluxe I bought 40 years ago. I still keep and play on good amount of electric guitars and have about 8 of them " Pleked". My first impression about that particular LP Standard: heavy and thick body, small frets (1mm x 2,3 mm), fingerboard harsh like todays rosewood. Overnight soaking fingerboard by linseed oil, strings change for my gage and first judgement: perfect intonation, easy to make my action 1,5E1, 2,0 E6, endless soustain (acoustic sound), perfect frets settings, tuners and overall job. Playability superb. Pug in: Super Reverb - fantasic sound, Marshall JTM - absolute ROCK ESSENSE. And now I know why I bought that Wonder - to have and play the best blues-rock guitar ever made. That it is fantastic that Gibson decided to make back Les Paul Standard 50s. To underline importance of this guitar first song I played was "Hideway" note-for-note EC and Bluesbreakers version from 1964 !

Beautiful guitar
Stu41, 23.11.2019
Finally decided to take the plunge after watching & reading MANY reviews! I?m not disappointed! It sounds amazing & is much easier to play than I thought it would be.
I?m glad I decided on this model over the others, I love the 50?s neck feel & the whole guitar just looks stunning. Great quality case with a nice hidden compartment with some goodies & even a photo of the guitar at the factory. Also, the whole thing smells SO good!
We have friends staying with us at the moment but I?m not seeing too much of them as I can?t put the LP down!!
I?m looking forward to many years playing this guitar.
Great work Gibson.

It's a proper Gibson Les Paul
CouchPlayer, 02.08.2020
I am a bedroom player and for years have dreamt of having a Gibson Les Paul. The day has finally come, after almost 10 years!

It plays good, it sounds good and it looks good also.

But the cons are: for this price I was disappointed to see that there are tooling marks on the freatboard past the 16th, on the lower strings side. Also the pickup selector switch came loose.

Apart from that I am very happy with my purchase!
