Compared to my 1975 Gibson Les Paul, it's close. The only hold back is the bridge and tail piece are not as heavy duty, but they do the job, and that's what counts. In all other regards, this guitar is as good as any guitar I have ever played. While they are on sale(as of DEC 2005), BUY ONE..NOW..You will be glad you did.

Where Obtained: Musician's Friend
Features:
Made in Japan with excellent craftsmenship. Mahogany body with a neck cap, ebony fretboard, long tenon neck. Frets are medium jumbo, and feel great. 2 volume 2 tone controls, 500k pots, passive electronics. I got the HoneyBurst finish and she's a beauty, well done finish job. Pickups are 50T and 60T, all electronics are American made, the pickups are Burstbucker seconds. Single cutaway body with a Tune-O-Matic bridge. Grover tuners that are excellent.
Playability:
Action came set low with no buzzes so I have left it that way, it plays wonderfully. The neck has made me feel like a shredder, very fast. This guitar is as good as any I have ever played.
Sound Quality:
I have used the ELITIST with my Marshall JCM-800 and my Marshall Master Lead Combo and thru both it is a very smooth sounding guitar, not bright at all. Great chunky rhythm's and bold sounding leads. I am not gonna mod this guitar, it is great the way it is. Quiet as a mouse when not playing, even thru my JCM-800. For a light touch finesse player this guitar would be HEAVEN.
Durability:
I play HARD. I beat the hell out of my guitars onstage. This guitar is better for a light touch, but I am gonna give it all I got anyway. It's built very well and will take what I throw at it. I put Dunlop Strap Locks on it, can't have a broken neck.
