These bad boys were Les Pauls stamped with a different name and built in the same Fuijijen factory as many of my other guitars (my 94' Talmans, etc). What's there to say? If you know a 1978 Les Paul than you know this guitar. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I'm not particularly a Les Paul fan. I'm not a fan of heavy guitars in general and they don't make em' heavier than Les Pauls. The only reason I even own one is because it's a perfect replica with the same parts for a fraction of the price, so why not buy it just to add it to my collection and play on my lap every once in a blue.
