Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Everything I wanted and then some."
Overall: Gibson hit this one out of the park. It is everything claimed in the ad copy. The new switch/jack do feel a TON better than my old '93 Studio's or my 2014 339 (which is a fine guitar, but the electronics on it now feel cheap by comparison). Pickups are snappy and get the traditional Les Paul sound. Electronics (accessible via DIP switch on the tone/vol circuit cavity) offer a ton of options, and they all sound good. Pick what makes you happy, and you won't have to open it up very often to change things, but you can. G Force tuners work as advertised. I'm not going for mega heavy strings (use Fender stainless 10s, like I do on all my guitars). Strum, in tune, yay. Easy removable pickguard is something Gibson should have done years ago. It just snaps in/out. Aluminum case is like an Airstream trailer for the guitar. It's not light but it's not astonishingly heavy either. Feels like class, and a big step up from the alternatives. Fit and finish on the guitar is very, very good. Not seeing any flaws, even inside the electronics cavity looked good. Included accessories were a nice touch, especially the pickup wiring kit that lets you take 2 or 4 conductor pickups that don't have the Gibson plug in end and make them work with the existing stuff installed. No need to butcher the existing electronics for a pickup swap. Neck width is pleasant. Reminiscent of the wide Ibanez Wizard stuff with a much beefier profile - shredder meets jazzbox, in a very pleasant way. Neck access improvement should be on all the non-traditional guitars, it may look a little funny but playing it made me a believer. Not cheap but feels like a fair price given the overall quality of the thing. I don't feel cheated for the $$$ at all. Only negative is the lack of details on the DIP switch settings - there's a small sticker on the inside of the cover for the electronics cavity, and nothing more. No insert in the manual, nothing on Gibson's site. I contacted Gibson directly and they're looking into getting me more info, got through to a real human being in the US with less than 15 seconds on hold. A+.
Style of Music: Experimental, free improv outside weird stuff. Think soundtracks for an unfinished art film.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Love this guitar!"
Overall: Bought this about a month ago and I can't be more satisfied. The fit and finish is flawless but this is not a weight relived guitar. Just as heavy as ever but it plays beautifully. If you can pay the extra bucks for this guitar it is well worth it.
Style of Music: Classic rock mostly

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
