This is by far the best guitar I've ever played. It's everything you would expect and more. The tones are rich and pure. There is no background noise. I'm not good enough to to do what should be done with this guitar. Very expensive, but very worth it!
A few years back I had the good fortune to play a genuine "57 Gold Top at a local vintage shop. I've never forgot that experience. Ever since it was my goal to buy a new Custom Shop '57. I'm not sorry! This guitar feels, plays, and sounds just like the original! What more can I say? This is the real deal. If you're thinking about buying one, don't think. Just do it! You won't be sorry, either.
this guitar is incredible... i happen to have bought one last year, only mine came with black hardware (pick up rings, pick guard, etc. ) this guitar has biting power, played through a marshall tube, and you will have the ultimate sound... if you are considering it... dont just buy it, i promise, you wont regret it... if you happen to live in NYC, then you can go to see les paul play himself at Iridium, every monday night, and he signs guitars and all, after the show... i went and got mine signed, he is about 93 now, so...better hurry up.
I bought this guitar about one month ago and this guitar is great the mahogany neck just fits right. This guitar puts out an AMAZING sound. Perfect for all styles. Not only does it play great but it looks great.
