First off, this guitar is visually stunning. The alpine white version is possibly the best looking guitar around. Also, the classic, iconic and ever popular Les Paul shape is shown in all its glory through this guitar. This came from the warehouse in perfect condition, no belmishes on the paintwork, set up perfectly- despite slightly low action, easily dealt with- and everything was as it should be.
The stock pick ups that come on this guitar are ideal for all types of music, especially blues and rock. But honestly, this is a very versatile guitar and is capable of nice, chunky rhythm sounds or bright, mellow cleans even through a poor amp. However, through a quality amp, such as a Mesa Boogie, this guitar shows its true colours, and the sound is awesome. Very crushing overdriven sounds can be had, and beautiful cleans are also possible. For this price range, no better guitars for sound quality can be found. This is truly excellent under any circumstances. Yet, with a pickup change, this could easily rival the sound of a much more expensive Gibson!
I have had this guitar for just over a year now, and I have had no issues with reliability or the such. This guitar has not as of yet failed me, and is a very sturdy, reliable piece of gear. Even after a few tumbles and knocks, the finish had remained superb, and it is still as it was when I first bought it. It is fairly heavy though, but for me this is not a problem.
If you're looking for an affordable, yet quality guitar, you should definately consider purchasing one of these. Quality sounds, beautiful looks and realiability all make this an amazing guitar.
Summary: An amazing guitar for an amazing price!
