Comments about Gibson 2016 Les Paul Traditional HP Electric Guitar:

It is great with good sound and looks great. This is one of the best guitars I ever played I really like it. This is my 11th guitar I have ever owned and the most expensive but it is worth it. It also hurts alot if you do not play with a pic but pics are pretty much free you can buy 100 for a buck.
