"Great guitar!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was pleasantly surprised by the sheer amount of sustain this has. You can still feel the notes vibrating through the mahogany body, long after you stop hearing them, unplugged! Neck has a fat 50's style feel, but is a pleasure to play. I ordered the P90 version, and can't say enough about these pickups. Neck pickup is warm and fat, and bridge is very clear and with the right tone setting can start to get Tele style twang. Put on a little crunch and the P90's begin to growl and give great hard rock tones. Fit and finish was excellent, and zZounds shipping is top of the line, delivered in 2 days, same as my previous Acoustic and Amp purchases. I highly recommend the Les Paul Special Tribute to anyone looking for a versatile, made in USA guitar. I normally sway to Fender, but this has just stolen my #1 guitar spot.
