5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
VERIFIED
CUSTOMER
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: The guitar arrived in excellent condition. The wood and action are great. One saddle needed adjusting, that's all. It looks great in Worn Cherry, even more so than I expected. The pickups are rock oriented - aggressive, but not metal aggressive. Neck finish feels terrific. Lightweight for a LP.
Style of Music: rock, blues

CUSTOMER
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: Excellent service from zZounds, price/delivery was the best around. Purchased a worn cherry finish and it's blemish free. A pure rock and roll machine, sounds SO good through my Blackstar tube head or Katana solid state amp. Quality control was spot on except one thing, something that has been well documented and much discussed. Why Gibson does this is beyond me, but they ship these out with the driest fretboard's. Took 3 light applications of lemon oil (and 2 string changes) to get it to "normal". Small thing, for sure, but it irked me to no end, a feeling that quickly turns to YEEHAW once I start playing it. Top notch deal on a Gibson Les Paul and definitely a deal at this price.
Style of Music: Texas blues,Balines style, Mayhem-based metal, and Acid-ized loop percussion

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.
