Overall the guitar is a great one for the money. It's aesthetically pleasing with the Walnut finish and nicely tapered neck. I must have turned it over half a dozen times before I plugged it in. The only thing I noticed was the fret ends could have been polished a little better. They weren't Sharp, but may interfere with finger/hand action. I just touched the ends a little with a fine file , the polished them with triple 0 fine steel wool. Smooth as silk after minimal effort. The tuners are okay, not to much float in them and the hold a tune after the strings are stretched . The stock strings are fine but I'm sure I'll put some Rev Billy strings on it soon. The sound and tone is what struck me the most. It sounds great, with any pedal mix or distortion level. There are some mixes that the G string can be a little obnoxious but I've found that true on other Les Paul models as well. Just adjust your tone a little and it's fine. Movement on the neck and fretboard is quick and effortless whether playing chords or picking out a riff. I would definitely gig out with it, bit I'm more content to use it as a practice guitar. Service from zZounds is quick and painless. Turnaround time was a day.
