I've heard mixed things about the new Les Paul line, but this one is definitely what a Les Paul should be. The neck is nice and thick, feels just a hair smaller than an R8 neck. Right out of the box this thing plays amazingly. Its got great tone. These are the Alnico II burstbuckers so they aren't as hot as some other Les Paul pickups, but you get some great sounds, think Pearly Gates pickups. Definitely a blues/classic rock machineAs far as QC goes, everything looked great on mine. The only complaint I had, and it seems to be a recurring theme, the fret board was super dry. I conditioned it once and then conditioned it again a few days later and its where its supposed to be now. Other than that, the finish looks good, no overspray on the binding or anything like that. The flame top is absolutely gorgeous.Overall, this is what an Les Paul should be. I owned a 2012 Traditional Pro and looking back, it felt like a cheap knock off compared to this one. Feels good and sounds great.
