5 years ago I had planned to purchase a different Les Paul model, but this called to me from the racks of the local Guitar Center. It feels great, plays well, and it's worn nicely.
My only qualm is with the electronics. The pickups run through a circuit board instead of being hand-wired to the pots, which over time has produced a "tinny" sound when playing higher notes (That could of course just be a player issue, but I'd rather preserve my fragile ego and blame the guitar). But, as a lower-end Les Paul, it's understandable that they'd cut corners on the electronics. And if that's the only criticism, there really isn't much to complain about.
