"GIBSON QUALITY IS BACK!!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
One word: Amazing. The fit and finish on this 50's Les Paul Gold Top is Custom Shop quality! It arrived from zZounds overnight in perfect condition and ready to play out of the box. None of the old Gibson issues that plagued the old management. Gibson is officially back and these Les Pauls will become the benchmark and hallmark of the company's turnaround. I am known for sending guitars back if one little thing is off. This one stays and has moved to the top of my collection.
