    Comments about Gibson ES-Les Paul Special Electric Guitar:

    I have owned Gibson guitars in different models for over 40 years. Clarity, light weight, neck response, everything adds up to a great guitar that is meant to be played and used as a tool for your artistic aspirations and plain old fun. This is a player and a keeper for a lot of reasons. Bought this to be used and not stored as a collectible, I don't have money for that, but the standard Gibson value and craft is there in abundance keeping me a happy player.
