"My Les Paul Standard 50's"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This Les Paul is amazing ! The sound and feel right out of the box is the best I have felt and heard. The fifties style neck is just right, not too big and and it feels fantastic! My hands are only average size at best, but I fell in love with the way the neck fit my hand.Next the sound and tone are to die for! There is no weight relief in this guitar, it's solid body but it does not seem heavy at all. This standard 50's will be in my collection for many years to come. The new management at Gibson has done a great job and their products show their commitment ! Great job Gibson.........
