OK guitar with some minor issues

Nathan F., 05.04.2015
I just purchased this. It is my first guitar with active humbuckers. These are not super hot, but they will overdrive an amp if you really dig in. It is possible to get some decent clean tone, surprisingly.

These do have the correct 25k pots, just in case you might be worried about that.

It appears to have a bone nut, that is cut very well. Compared to a some cheaper Chinese guitars I've purchased on the internet, the setup is quite good indeed.

The only issues I had were with the finish. They mask off the binding on the top edge, but don't blend the edge well so it leaves a slight lip where the finish is easily chipped and it looks like some of the finish may have stuck to the tape so there are some rough areas along the top edge.

2 month Update:
Some issues I forgot to include. Mystery goo on frets requiring heavy polishing to remove. Looks like glue possibly.

I did not care for the stock pickups. I swapped them out in favor of Seymour Duncan Blackouts, which are a direct drop in replacement. Sounds incredible now.

The hardware is a step up over Chinese guitars in this price range, but clearly lower quality than what comes on most Epiphones and Squiers.

After the pickup swap and a little TLC, this guitar plays great, but it still looks and feels cheap.

Final update:

I reinstalled the stock pickups to give them a second chance. I think they are actually quite good upon further review. They sound like an active pickup should.

I think I was too quick to try new pickups in this, and did not give these a fair shake.

The guitar holds tune well and now that I've spent a little time polishing the frets it plays a whole lot better.

More than expected

23.01.2016
I wanted a guitar to play and not to care too much about it. But now I think is more than that.
First thing noticed after unboxing, was the reinforcement profile on the neck, under the nut. Not all the Gibson have it, (Epiphones usually do) and they are notorious for neck breaking. Apparently, this one is safe. The guitar was set up in the shop, but action was pretty high. I tried to lower it and now is as low as any good guitar, so no frets problems. I wonder why they left it like this. The active pickups sound impressive, very hot, and lot of highs and no hum. The tone control is effective, but is working on first third of the turn, then nothing happen. I think there is a logarithmic pot installed, instead of linear.
Easy to replace.
The weak part are the tuners. Guitar stays in tune, but the the tuning process is a trial and error process. But I will upgrade them anyway.
Bodywork looks good, no visible defects. Neck feels a bit chunkier than Fender style guitars which is quite comfortable for me.
Overall, I think I got more than I paid for.
