I’ve had a lot QC issues in the past with SGs. This Les Paul came to me completely flawless. It was actually set up pretty good. I’m not sure if it was Gibson or someone at Zzounds. I’m very happy my purchase. The guitar came with a chunky neck, I’ve owned another Les Paul 50s and it had a thick neck, but not as thick as this one. I prefer big chunky necks. Very resonant. The binding is scraped perfectly, no chatter marks or any issues. Seriously, flawless! The belly cut is very pronounced, and the playability is excellent. Was able to get the actin down to (Low E) 3/64ths and (High e) 2/64ths (1/32).. the nut was the most impressive of all. Rounded off at the edges and polished. Almost shiney like a bone nut. Saddle radius cut perfectly, and fret board is nice and dark. Guitars are temperamental things, and have had the best of luck with Les Pauls, I would highly recommended getting one. zZounds provides awesome financing options. You won’t regret it.
