Overall Rating:
For the price and the quality, I'd probably buy it again. This U.S. made guitar has the old gibson heritage in it but not at the gibson price. I think you can buy it with different pickup options, so use it. The price is the best option. Worst aspect is the funny looking pick guard.
Model Year: 1994
Price: $400.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Local Music Store
Features:
U.S. Made, Mahogany body & Neck, with Maple top. 22 frets using D'addario 9-42's 2 volume 2 tone pots, 3-way selector switch 2 Schaller Golden 50's humbuckers (passive) Gold-top finish Les Paul body style Grover tuners (non-locking)
Playability:
It has a rosewood neck, which is usable. The finishing is not as perfect as my Gibson Studio Gem but better than the Korean made Epiphones. Is lighter on the back than a Gibson Les Paul. It's body is not as thick.
Sound Quality:
I use a Peavey Bandit 112 and it gives a very warm tone. I try to play jazz and blues with it but its not all there. There is a little muddyness to the sound. Too much emplasis on the bass or you could say that treble side of the pickups is weak. I am having Gibson 496R & 500T pickups installed on it. Hoping for a more balanced output.
Durability:
Reliable yes, flexible no. Haven't had the truss-rod adjusted yet. Still looks straight. Strap buttons as big. Controls and other hardware have not developed any problems.
