Gibson is back...nope.
Digital Rocker 23.09.2021
I have send back 2 of these, both were amazing guitars but had some fairly major issues and should have never passed QC:

Gibson is among my favorite brands, the sounds, feel, history. Even the smell of fresh nitro is great but maybe invest a bit more in your workforce and not rush these out of the gate!

First guitar I recieved had multiple finishing issues, an incorrect cut nut and a difference in height between the fretboard and neck. The stain was sloppy, blochy and was clearly a rush job. There was even a big smear on the back under the finish.
And what's the point of natural binding if you put so much stain over it that it is barely discenable from the mahogany underneath?

The 2nd guitar I got was a bit better but had two knots in the back that were bleeding red into the nitro... Curious to see what that will look like a few years down the road from now.
The stain on the neck was blochy, uneven and spilled over the edge at the headstock. This could have been cleaned up easily but nope, let's just clearcoat over it...

Whats funny is that this one will probably also end op being sold as a b-stock instead of being send back to big G overseas. Buyer beware, the big corps don't really care!

I will try my luck at some local stores now. Peace!

Amazing guitar
KamilF 29.07.2019
I received this guitar from Thomann last week. Transfer from Germany to Poland was really smooth and quick. Guitar was well packed with special cartoon provided by Thomann. No damage or other problems spotted.

Guitar is rather amazing with some minor remarks. Sound is stunning and if I compare EMG pickups with 490 R and 490 T humbuckers I can see a huuuge difference. Sustain is probably the greatest advantage of this Gibson Les Paul.

Wood and color STB made me really happy. Of course it depends on personal preference but in general this guitar looks wonderful. Guitar is not heavy but I do not think it may cause any problems (just for those criticizing modern Les Paul constructions from Gibson).

Fretboard is very comfortable however I spotted some buzz on first few frets when push with limited strength (!). I will regulate it but It should not happened to Gibson.

The last thing is a glue on body under the fretboard. I could be better wiped. Is not a real problem but rather minor esthetic issue.

Overall, guitar gives you a lot of pleasure and fun when you play. I play rock and metal and I'm not disappointed.

Great product
RodCM 31.07.2020
If you want to have a Gibson Les Paul experience and don't wanna pay the double for a standard, you could also get this great instrument, that you can keep for ages, and still be happy with it. Thomann also did an excellent delivery jo. If you already know what you want, buying it from Thomann, it's a great choice.

Great Les Paul!
kourkoumpinis 09.01.2023
It serves as the entry point for Gibson les pauls and it serves this role perfectly. It sounds great, plays great, but lacks some features that would probably be expected at this price point from other companies. It came with a perfect set up and it was ready to play. Its not worth it, spending double for a standart just for the funcier looks (binding, flamed top). All in all, it's a great instrument.
