It took me the better part of two months to make up my mind. I was gonna buy an affordable genuine Gibson Les Paul for sure but which one? I knew I wanted humbuckers - not P90s - and I was partial toward the slim tapered neck - my hands are rather small. Plus I don't really like those black painted backs of the 2016 models. Then I saw this beauty and it was love at first sight! Because she is a real beauty! Ok, there's no binding and no AAAA grade lacquered flamed maple top, but the satin faded honeyburst finish brings out the best of the natural grain of the grade A arched maple top and the light tone of the neck and back does the same for the mahogany. The finish is perfect though admittedly simple and a bit on the rustic side but I like it this way. This guitar even smells good! She smells of wood rather than paint or lacquer! But all the LP tone is there and playability is just excellent! Setup - intonation and action height - was perfect right out of the box! I enjoy playing her so much I can hardly put her down! The only thing I had to do was lubricating the grooves of the nut a bit by moving the strings intensely for a few minutes so she would hold tune and now she does, big bends or no big bends! Five stars in all departments - though I gave her only four stars for features: coil tap ability would be nice but I know I'm being greedy... So thank you Gibson and thank you Thomann, I'm one very happy dude!
Beautiful guitar, without the bling and binding that characterize many of the more expensive LPs. For my money the faded vintage-style burst looks absolutely stunning. Fit and finish and quality are great, no issues at all. I was prepared to replace the 490s for a set of Seth Lovers but actually they're fine PUs for blues so I've decided to keep them. Good quality gigbag included. This is the best LP Gibson have released in a long while, for a very reasonable price for a made in USA guitar. Highly recommended!
