First, I need to say that zZounds has taken care of me and gone above and beyond any expectations in my recent purchases. I made two big returns prior to buying this Les Paul and zZounds did an amazing job. I've heard stories about issues on payment plans and returns - not for me though. They went above what they needed to do for me. So on to the guitar... Wow. The photos don't do this thing justice. I've been playing for over twenty years and never cared for Gibson guitars much. I also realize now I've never played one above their lowest end faded or lpj type guitars - what a mistake! I'm literally angry right now that I didn't buy one sooner because I'm pretty sure I've set myself back years in playing ability by not owning one. I've owned fenders and they're great too, but nothing like this. I mostly played cheaper asian guitars because I was a shredder type. This is a whole other instrument.Action and setup were 9/10 out of box which is impressive. I'm also impressed by Gibson's stock strings - I'm considering changing. It's setup for 9s out of box. Don't be put off by the gig bag, this is an impressive bag. the fit and finish on the guitar are perfect. It really couldn't be better. People saying 490r and 498t are a bad combo are snob elitests who have no idea what they're talking about. These pickups are perfect. This is a REAL guitar. Nothing else I've ever owned even comes close. zZounds, you need to do something about your cameras because your photos do not do this thing read more justice! I had apprehensions about gold hardware or do I want a honey burst LP tribute... No regrets now after seeing the thing. Played till my fingers were raw now I have to wait a day before I pick it up again!
