Gibson Smart Wood Les Paul

Electric 6-String Guitar

Made by Gibson

Description The model I own is a natural wood beauty . The term smart wood is derived from the logistics of where the wood is purchased from. Rain forests throughout the world that are being destroyed.

Overall Rating:
Fender Strat Fender Mustang/ Jag. Paul Reed Smith Ibenez, Carvin,Jackson were other guitars I tried out. Probably would buy again if something happened to it. Guitar could be improved with 2 more frets and better tuners. Favorite aspect diversity of tone/ Worst aspect staying in tune.
Model Year: 1999
Price: $899.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Mars Music
Features:
USA made Mahogany Neck,18 Frets, 6 strings, 2 volume/2 tone/ 1 three way switch 2 humbuckers active electronics, natural finish,Les Paul Original Body,Not sure what name is of bridge style(NOT STRING THRU BODY) Locking Gold Plate Sperzel Tuners
Playability:
I can obtain responsive effortless action . The neck and the closness from string to fret is remarkable, in as much as there is NO buzzing and enables me to play./.practice longer. It plays as well to me as guitars twice the price.NO FLAWS YET!
Sound Quality:
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe...Cry Baby Wah Wah...Zoom 505 Effects Processor. Jazz, Blues, Rock ,Original musical styles are recreated pleasingly. It would be well suited as well for any type musical style.CLassic Fender full bodied rich Tone. Sound comparision is relatively competible. considering Marshall & LineSys amps. It can sometimes be tempermental and scratchy as if it were moody, however putting it to "bed" and waking back up is a wonderful remedy.Better for stage.
Durability:
Yes..Live Playing Reliable Adjustment Tone probably needs adjsting every three songs. Have not had Guitar long enough to rate hardware etc. try not to expose it to climate changes.
