I was born and raised on Fender guitars for most of my playing life, so when it came to considering a Gibson, the bar was set high. I briefly had a Les Paul copy years ago and liked it, so when it came time to purchase, the Les Paul was it. After much research I settled on the Les Paul Standard '50s Gold Top. I cannot communicate how nice a guitar this is. The quality of construction and craftmanship out of the box was amazing. There were no flaws in the build that I could note. No dings, dents, mismatched seams, painting or finishing issues whatsoever. The string gauge and setup for me was perfect. No adjustments necessary. Went to playing it as soon as it was unpackaged and the sound is amazing. Love the thicker neck profile. A truly high quality instrument for the price. I have bought 4 guitars and other gear from zZounds and have been extremely satisfied with my online shopping experience and their "pay as you play" program. The web site is easy, simple and secure to use. They are always communicating by email about your order and have yet to resolve any customer service issue. Very happy at this point and already looking for the next guitar!
