I have owned many guitars through the years, Fender Strats, Telecasters, Epiphone Masterbuilt, Gretsch Dbl Jet and a couple of Gibson Les Paul's Classics and a 2014 Traditional. I must say, that the new Gibson Les Paul 50's Standard AAA Flame Top is the best guitar I have ever owned from a quality of build, materials and sound. Period. This guitar not only looks like a piece of art, it plays beautifully, very, very, very happy with this purchase. If you like Les Paul's, this is the one you have been waiting for.
