I own this guitar in Pelham Blue. It's a beautiful guitar that feels very nice over my shoulder. I started with an Epiphone Les Paul, traded that in for a Les Paul Studio, and traded that in for this. After wanting a Les Paul for so long, I finally found one that I absolutely love. This is one of my most valuable guitars.
Resonance, Resonance, Resonance Nice 1 piece Mahogany back (traditional weight relief on this model) and 1 piece mahogany neck with a 2 piece bookmatched maple cap and a sweet 1 piece rosewood fretboard. Really nice acoustic sounding instrument. My thoughts originally on it amplified was it sounded pretty good with the BB3 pickup in the bridge. I'm not the biggest fan of Gibson Pickups and wiring so I had to customize once I got over it. I went for a full custom wiring make over and my choice of Pups were vintage very early '70s Dimarzio SD & PAF to really bring out the life of the guitar and it worked. The locking machine heads were great but I had to use them elswhere in an emergency sale of another guitar so out come a vintage '60s set of Grover pearl buttons and this completed the beast.
