I chose this one based on looks and playability. The looks got me and the overall playability sold me on it. I love the lighwieght feel of the guitar. I love the heaviness of a Standard or Studio as well but a nice lightweight Les Paul cant be beat either.
Model Year: 2003
Price: $750.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Alpha Music
Features:
Beautiful guitar! Ive never had a problem with the features. Depending on what style of music you are playing you might want to switch out the bridge pup with something hotter like a Dimarzio p-90 Superdistortion.
Playability:
The action is great! I cannot complain about this at all. The neck is so easy to play on and it's rounded design gives it good grip.
Sound Quality:
I play mine through a Marshall and I can get just about any sound I want out of it. Nice tone but Im switching out the volume pots with 500k pots to get a little more bite out of it.
Durability:
Nothing beats the reliabilty of a Gisbon.

Overall this guitar is pretty good. the playability is great. Just some nit-picking about pickups and switch. I caught a deal on the price because Mars was going out of business, so I think it's agreat value at $550.
Price: $549.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Mars musi
Features:
It's features are good, but the switch is always unscrewing itself from the body. Otherwise everything works well and I'm pleased.
Playability:
Well, I haven't had to mess with the action at all. the neck is awesome I love the rounded shape. I find it to be the easiest to play on. Very easy to play.
Sound Quality:
At times it can sound great, but the pickups cut out if the bass is too loud, making the higher notes inaudible. When I play, the side side of my hand is right over the neck pickup, so when I deaden the strings, the strings hit the pickup, making this popping sound. The pickup height seems to always be adjusting itself, too.
Durability:
Haven't had a problem with durability, other than the switch unscrewing itself. Pretty solid guitar.
