Workmanship all over. I like this one above the Standard 2016 (which I also tried). I really dig the sound of the 57 humbuckers and the feel and weight of this beautiful piece of quality. A bit of weight relief, but not as much as the standards (they feel a bit unnatural, compared to the older Standards and the Traditionals. So there is still the feeling of carrying a real Les Paul. I really love it!
