Comments about Gibson Custom Custom Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Les Paul Goldtop Electric Guitar:
The sound from the "humbucker" pickups is as pro as any axe out there if not the best. The looks are classic and timeless imitated but not a Gibson. Great finish in most any color you can imagine. One problem and a major one. It is one heavy SOB to have strapped on your shoulder for sets. That is why the 3 stars. It is so heavy it takes away 2 out of the possible 5. Regarding the price you have to remember that this IS quality American craftsmanship.
