I got this because I needed a humbucker, and the Jagmaster wasn't quite doing what I wanted. I used to play a 66 Kalamazoo Les Paul Deluxe back in the 80s as my main guitar, and I knew a Les would have the tricks I wanted. I got one in cherry because I always wanted one since I saw Kristin Hersh playing one in the 80s, but I grew away from Les Pauls, so this was my first chance to indulge that. Its a good guitar, but Gibson haven't made a great guitar since the old glue ran out in about 1970 in my opinion, and some of the cheap knock offs are as good if not better than the real thing.
